Uhem...the Obama Administration had nothing to do with the IRS scandal..
Please read the article below..
Never said Obama did. But as The Commander and Chief, he does bear some responsibility as does anyone in the business world when their employees mess up. One side tries to paint him as the devil and the other as an angel. The truth is somewhere in between.
I think we have all fell in the good and bad category at some point in life. The difference between the POTUS and us..our issues or what others may precieve as issues aren't on display. He is not the Governor of a state, the senator of a district or etc; he's the POTUS. It's no way he could please everyone.
Great post PN. I think it portends the forthcoming splintering of the Republican Party. True Fiscal Conservatives and Centrist-Moderates, hopefully break free from the shackles thrust upon them by the lunatic Tea Partiers. Let the Tea Partiers stand by themselves.
It seems funny that when Bush was president he was held to the fact that he was in charge and therefore responsible for his staff. Funny how the duck suit obama continues to wear always seems to get him a get out of jail free card. Its a double standard and all invloved know this like it or not. At this rate what is obama responsible for? Apparently not obamacare because it is failing miserably, not the IRS because he didnt know... fast and the furious, not him again. so just what is this cat responsible for. DOMA, Immigration, cant think of much else of substance he has brought to the table.
PN, the only thing distinguished about about the Republicans that are posted here is that they are "RINO's" Republican in name only which is a far cry from the Republican Party that was created in 1854, which is responsible for my freedom, and even more positive events in our history that I won't list at this time. RINO's agree with Progressives like Obama, to keep decent people in slavery through BIG Government "Leviathan"
PN, HMJC is a true leader like Chief MVB and me. We were in charge of a large group of people that we were responsible for. Yes, it's true you can't please everyone; however the bottom line comes down to did you make your decisions by policy and if you did you treated everyone fairly by doing so. HMJC don't want no cheese and isn't a whiner like Barack Hussein Obama!
The Obama administration is in power and they "own" the problems and the errors that are being made. The questions are:
*Did they cause them?
*How are they going to fix them?
*Are they covering them up?
Those of us who remember Watergater remember that it started as a "third rate burglary" that was characterized as an isolated incident and two years later all kinds of crap had come to light. The vast majority of the problems uncovered could be characterized as political abuses of power by the Nixon administration.
If the Democrats and the press hadn't kept digging, no doubt Nixon would have completed his second term and we'd be debating how "great" a president he was. If the Republicans don't keep digging here, we won't be able to fully and truly answer the above questions and to determine HOW MUCH abuse of power is going on - because IMHO there is ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT THAT from the "scandals" I've read about, there HAVE been abuses of power. Some have been by career "public servants" and others have been by elected officials. Just read the reports. Nobody is blameless but the adminstration in power - i.e., Mr. Obama - IS HOLDING THE BAG. It is their responsibility to air things out and come clean with the American people - no matter where the abuses occurred.
I see this administation doing what all the others have done (and probably will do in the future):
Duck, dodge, hide, deny, deny, deny, obfuscate, stonewall, "I don't recall," shift the blame/point fingers at the opposition, etc., etc., everything EXCEPT:
Take full responsiblity, come clean with the American people, get after the problems and FIX THEM.
Excellent finally Chief to an informative blog. Chief, Murrelet is gone and we don't have to worry about getting ridiculed on typo's anymore. We all do it from time to time. "Human beings"
PN, no cheese thank you. I would like to know why every "scandal" is deemed a non issue, why every foregien policy mess he creates is a no issue. I can take the jibbing but My constant requests to denote what great things he has done for ALL Americans during his tenure. To date the only legacy he has is being the first almost black president. His constant failure to accept responsibilty for his administration. Christ, even Hillary owned up t bengahzi. This administration continues to be in damage control mode; this detracts from addressing real issues. The guy is a bum but history wont reflect that. If ya think I am whining so be it, I speak what i feel and believe. I can live with that
