No, MM, my thinking cap is working just fine. Much better than any tinfoil hat
could possibly do. Y'might try one sometime.
"You are so politically biased and your ideology is so thick you can't
even see your emperor has no clothes."Was this said while
looking into the mirror? I mean really. Which of these "scandals" has
been confirmed, by facts, with actual indictments? Unless honesty is completely
lost here, the answer would be zero. There is yet lots to learn about all of
the above incidents. But lets be real here, Libya has now been probed, probed
again, and again, with still no sign of actual criminal actions - other than
vague could have, would have type statements that still don't prove the end
result would have been anything different.We seem to completely
forget about another women named Rice, who stood before the world and claimed we
had proof positive of weapons of mass destruction programs - and that we would
soon show the world what they were - to ultimately fail in that quest. How
quickly partisan minds forget acts like these... or secret meetings with Cheney
in the White House, that he refused to testify to congress about, under White
House immunity.The inconsistency by both prides is hard to swallow.
Hannity has instructed him well. Who instructs Hannity?
I was watching Meet the Press yesterday, and they had a reporter from the
Washington Post (I think). They were discussing the leaks and if the leaker
was a hero or a criminal, and the reporter was defending the leaker as a hero.
But I kept wanting the moderator to ask the reporter why the leaker had to
release his info to a foreign news paper (and not any American news paper)?The reporter said the leaker shopped around for a news outlet that would
take the story. I'm wondering how long he shopped it around to American
papers that just passed on it (because it didn't fit their agenda). It used to be that American papers would kill for a story like this, and
a reporter wanted to be the first to break a controversial story about the
President. But not anymore... they just seem like reporter zombies that just
report what the President and his press sec give them to report.America has changed a lot in my lifetime. Not all for the better.
@Hahahaha"Not one of the crazed, flaming leftists even approaches a
specific answer to the questions posed in the letter. "There was
one sentence that ended with a question mark in the letter. I commented on it.
Not my fault you have selective reading.
MMan forgets the biggest "freebie" of all was given away by the guy he
voted for...the prescription drug plan. It was never paid for (the GOP owned
both Houses and the White House at the time) and they never raised a concern
about paying for the freebie with money from China like the do daily today. PS. W's approval rating was in the 20% when he left office even
with the giveaway, but then the measuring stick is always different for people
of your political persuasion.
Hutterite What is obvious is that when Obama groupies can no longer
defend the obviously indefensible, they seek to obfuscate by referencing their
own talking points regarding "AM radio talking points"
As for Fast and Furious the obvious lesson we should've picked up on (if
you actually followed the reports on what happened) is that our anti-trafficking
laws against straw purchasers are woefully inept. An attempt to strengthen them
was filibustered in the senate (58 votes for it, but 40+ opposed it).
Susan Rice's biggest failure was reporting information she was given that
turned out to be incorrect.So... do you hold that standard to all
the Congressmen/women and Senators who go on Sunday talk shows and say something
that's wrong? What about Colin Powell or Condaleeza Rice when they made
statements that turned out to be wrong (and got us into a war...)? Seriously if
this is the worst thing Susan Rice has ever done in several years at her job
then she's extremely qualified.
By now most recognize that by and large those whose political allegiance lies to
the far-right hate President Obama. However, that is no excuse for their ardent
slander at every turn real or imagined of him whom the majority overwhelmingly
chose to govern this nation.And then to so vehemently deny this
breach of honesty and any of the other obvious excesses of today's extreme
Republican right is further evidence of an overreach of ideology at the expense
of pragmatism, reason, expertise, fairness and candor that most consider
essential to good government.Unfortunately, even as a minority in
Congress the far right in its uncompromising dedication to ideological purity is
able to obstruct any and all efforts at normal governance by a more moderate
majority.Insisting on an impossibly sealed southern border as an
absolute prerequisite for dealing with the separate issue of millions of illegal
immigrants already here is a prime example of how ideology can suffice without
reason in justifying the pursuit of self-interest.We aid and abet
the folly of right-wing extremism in Utah and in America at our own considerable
Wowzers!Talk about Conspiracy Theories run amok!And then we
have facts and the twisted denials of reality: Using the letter
writers own words - with substitutes;"Is it not obvious that
President Bush's invasion of Iraq killing thousands costing $TRLLIONS of
dollars over imaginary mythical non existent [i.e., lied about] WMDs proves that
the voters made a terrible mistake in re-electing him?"It's
been 6 years, and I'm still waiting for Conservative OR Republicans [which
ever you are] to admit you where all bamboozled and sold a snow job with the
last administration -- NSA spying and all.
I don't doubt Obama's poll numbers will stay above GWB's.
That's easy to explain, nearly 50% of Americans are getting freebies from
the government without paying any federal income taxes therefore 50% of voters
have their hands in the treasury for their "share" of the
redistribution! $17 trillion debt and growing by $1.5 billion every day can not
continue forever! But who cares about the future?@ One old man. Is
it your tinfoil hat that has short-circuited? Why not try thinking for a change?
Somebody's tinfoil hat has a short-circuit.
M-man, I'll bet that Obama's poll popularity never gets as low as
GWB's in his second, regrettable term. AND I bet that Biden will never
shoot anyone in the face with a shotgun.
Mountainman So lets see as of today obama's approv rating
remains at 47 percent a number it has been hovering around for months and
congressional approval, the people trying to create a political circus, approval
rating remains at 14 perecent so by all means keep the consperecy theories and
empty rhetoric coming.
@ MountanmanAs a Libertarian, after reading the posts of the
aforementioned & a few others that, I can safely say, "Conservatives
always right never correct."
Watch out, here comes the IRS with you in the cross-hairs. Make sure you change
cell phones if you are with verizon.
MMan's declaration that "Obama's plunge in the polls will
continue" reminds me of two others he made within days of the
President's reelection in November. Then still licking his wounds that his
choice was shunned by the voters he predicted: "the recent market downturn
will continue because people realize they opted for less than the all business
guy that is Mitt Romney" and "I hope you all like $4.00 a gallon gas
because it will soon be five or six dollars!" Why not leave
predicting the future to someone with a crystal ball instead of a slanted
No, it is not obvious. What is obvious is you dislike the president, and can
back it up with AM radio talking points.
Liberals are always entertaining. But now you are getting really humorous to the
point of ridiculousness in your defense of Obama's malfeasance, cover-ups,
his refusal to answer any questions about any of his scandals and you claim
anyone who asks him for answers in on a "witch hunt" or is a "side
show". You are so politically biased and your ideology is so thick you
can't even see your emperor has no clothes. Obama's plunge in the
polls will continue because you can fool some of the people all the time but you
can't fool all the people all the time.
Better hang on tightly to those guns, Mr. Dupont. The NSA now has you in its
And what about Obama's War on Christmas?And chemtrails?
I suspect Mr. DuPont, that history will see Rice's appointment and indeed
Mr. Obama's entire presidency differently.
You forgot to mention death panels and birth certificates.
