    You must be looking for a new job Kathleen, because after writing that, the D.C. establishment will ostricize you. Of course it doesn't matter that everything you said was the truth.


    After Obamas first year in office SNL did do a parody on Obama and all the stuff he did not get done after having said he would when campaigning. MSNBC actually took issue with it and tried to cover for Obama and accused SNL of having gotten the facts wrong. One has to laugh at how invested the mainstream media has been on Obama. I wonder if he will ever experience the "real world" or just go being comped as if he were a high roller in Vegas?

    50 years from now someone like Ken Burns will produce an historical documentary of this time period: The Obama White House. One can only imagine how it will run:

    "Republicans can ride on the bus with us, but they'll have to ride in the back."

    Money laundering campaign fundraising, ie Solyndra, etc.

    100% partisan ACA (not a single Republican vote in favor) and a majority of Americans disapprove of the law, but it is rammed down our throats anyway.

    Campaign lies: Benghazi was due to a video tape. You can keep your doctor and your insurance and your premium will drop $2500 (avg).

    Economic tailspin that after 5 years has not recovered.

    $7 Trillion federal debt added to the deficit.

    Raise taxes. Then raise them again but call it a "fee".

    Insert a "medical device excise tax" but apply it to tires, fishing rods, and other retail items.






    More debt and deficit spending.

    Nix the Keystone pipeline.

    Spy on friends and citizens.

    Ignore the US Constitution.

    Unilaterally and unconstitutionally change the ACA at a whim.

    Make war against religious liberties.

    Who needs enemies when you have a White House like this?

    One Vote:
    I think the press has done an admirable (cough, cough) job on covering congress!
    It's time all of the "nonscandals" were investigated one by one for the next (oh my heart) 3 years! It will be interesting to see just how many will take the 5th. They then should be indicted, and should not be serving the American people (which they haven't done, they've only served themselves).
    I hope everyone saw the vid of the veteran's affairs which spent 1000's on a silly video and our veterans are not being served. 42% approval, where are those people living in fantasyland?

    Can you imagine how funny Sat. Nite Live would have been these past 5 years if they would have used the material presented by this administration, rather than trying to cover for it??

    I'm reminded of President Truman's motto: The buck stops here.

    "Not to drone on..." Too late Kathleen.
