Obama to Ohio State grads: "Government good, Liberty bad, Tyranny not real." His scandals prove the truth about Barrack Obama!

Amusing to watch Republican outrage the same things they did in office, e.g., all the crafty lying about WMDs. Meanwhile, back in Utah, Republicans calmly and reverently await the outcome of a gentlemanly and never-ending inquest into the shady dealings of our chief law enforcement officer. Swallow will be retired or dead of old age before we get any answers.

George Will is not the only conservative I’ve heard these past few days bringing up Citizens United with regard to the IRS controversy. I would expect liberals to be more likely ones to be a defensive posturing mode. But here’s George Will alluding to it as a liberal narrative as he steers the discussion to big government instead of the issues of integrity.

Yes, the 5 year Republican plan seems to now be taking hold.
Muddy the waters with everything possible, twist and turn everything to your advantage, throw in a great deal of confusion and many partisan white lies, and never, ever forget to say "NO" to absolutely everything.
And, absolutely, positively, pretend that nothing like this ever took place during any Republican presidency!

"....He [Obama] stigmatizes as the vice of cynicism what actually is the virtue of skepticism about the myth that the tentacles of the regulatory state are administered by disinterested operatives. And the voices that annoy him are those of the Founders...."

That's just not true. Obama has a different interpretation of what the founders meant than George Will does. So do I.

Re: "Amusing to watch Republican outrage the same things they did in office, e.g., all the crafty lying . . . ."

Well, at least it's refreshing to here a liberal admit the Obama regime is engaged in "crafty lying," as well.

That's a good first step. Now, if we can just get a hyperpartisan Congress to come together, as it did in the Nixon era, to take appropriate action against the regime for its crafty lying -- impeachment -- we'll have really advanced the ball.

While "Thornbirds" ridiculously states, "And, absolutely, positively, pretend that nothing like this ever took place during any Republican presidency!", despite the fact that Mr. Will prominently displayed the quote from Nixon's articles of impeachment, s/he perfectly demonstrates the willful denial of those who so desperately seek to deny the obvious problems with this administrations.

Of all the presidents since Truman's (a Democrat) famous use of the phrase, "The buck stops here", I must say that Obama, and his devotees, are the worst at accepting the meaning of it.
