President Obama to the Queen of England: "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give me?" "Well," said the Queen, "The most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people." Obama frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know if the people around me are really intelligent?" The Queen took a sip of champagne. "Oh, that's easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle, watch" The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?" Tony Blair walked into the room and said, "Yes, your Majesty?" The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this please Tony. Your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?" Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered, "That would be me." "Yes! Very good." said the Queen. Obama went back home to
I simply cannot fathom that even a supporter or democrat would not find it totally unacceptable for big brother to spy on its citizens phone calls, emails (and God only knows what else) and allow and encourage and participate in harrassing groups that do not hold the same beleif as the president or his party, support and cover up terrorists killing diplomats, not lift a finger by way of sanctions on Mexico for holding one of our service men. Not totally restructure the VA for the sins and crimes of not caring for our vets medical needs !! Everything is HO HUMMED and blamed on someone else like a spoiled little rich kid that has to lie out of everything so his parents wont stop supporting him !!
Kendall. You need to study on what branch of government is responsible for making the laws and who has to abide by them. It is ignorance like this that got him elected in the first place and reason why there is hesitation to impeach him. Of course him being a Constitunional lawyer already, he knows what he is doing is a violation of his oath of office and the articles also. Google articles of impeachment. Most of his supporters have too many stars in their eyes to see what he is really doing !! And do NOT dish out the crap that other presidents were just as bad. They maybe had one scandal. People were fired etc. Not 5 or 10 serious ones that no one can figure out who is to blame and evidence destroyed. ! Gimme a break !!
You know, Kendall, that every point you try to score and rebuttal you try to make is almost too ridiculous to respond to, so I'm going to give up trying. If you can't understand that this country, under Obama, is going to H-ell on many fronts,I can't help you.
Suffice it to say that every scandal that is a result of Obama's purposeful design or ineptitude is not going to be rectified by your rhetoric about what any former president did or caused or behavior of the same. Obama is the one presently in power. Hey ask us for the job explaining HE had the solutions. Meanwhile, he's shown shooting pool contemporaneously with the people we spent billions of dollars to train in Iraq having their heads cutoff by ISIS and trainloads of ragamuffins from Central America (and who knows whom else) are being thrown over our border into our socio/economic malaise.
Are you just too dense to understand that?
"Obama recently golfing and shooting pool"
Shame on him..again, he should stay in the Oval Office 24/7 just like Reagan did right?
Wait...what?! Reagan didn't stay in the Oval Office 24/7? Oh that's right...instead of being in the Oval Office, he was busy shaking hands with those here in the Mid Ohio Valley back around 1985. He also rode horses instead of working for the nation? Shame on him.
Well, maybe George W. Bush worked in the Oval Office and never did photo ops.....oops, he was the one that landed that jet on a aircraft carrier didn't he? Nothing better for him to do that day I guess.
We all know Clinton spent time in the Oval Office but whether or not he got any real work done all depends on how you define "work".
"Burgdahl wasn't a POW. There is evidence leaning toward the possibility that he is a deserter. The terrorists he was TRADED FOR are non-state operators and should have been shot. Then they would not have been around for collateral."
And yet the military promoted the man back in 2011. Those "leanings" must not have been that strong.
The Five that were traded were Taliban Govt people. And like it or not, the Taliban was a government entity and their people must be treated differently than actual terror groups.
And to be shot as you put it requires something called a trial first, unless we are falling into chaos now. There was no trial, so the govt was either lazy or knew they wouldn't find them guilty of anything.
"CANDIDATE Obama campaigned on it,...."
He sounds like every other President we have had. He screwed up just like Reagan, both Bushes and Clinton. Obama is in fine company.
"having taxpayer paid employees claiming "The 5th""
Being a govt paid employee is irrelevant to their right to plead the 5th. The Far Right should be proud when citizens use the Constitution.
"Let's revisit that one in a couple of months. The Dred-Scott Decision wasn't a problem...immediately."
Apples to oranges. Also, unless we are wanting another Germany or Japan, eventually the Iraqis will have to want a Republic style govt or not. Unless you plan on sticking around for a half century, you can't force people to accept our style of govt.
"Obama seeks brisk passage of border children funding bill"
"Would subsidize schooling, health care, lawyers for illegal immigrants"
WHAT A SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!

"Why didn't the Governor of Texas mobilize them?" (The Texas National Guard).
That would be a good question to pose to the Governor of Texas. We can only speculate about how long the Obama Justice Dept. would have Texas taxpayers bound up in court, in essence, suing them because their governor was doing his job to protect the citizenry while Obama stands on his premise that the national borders are his (while ignoring the problem HE CAUSED). During all that time, the border would remain as Obama wants it with the Border Patrol cut to a 60% enforcement staffing while the remaining 40% act as baby sitters, caring for people who no longer run from them but come up to them, wanting to be taken into custody. That's all indicative of an effective enforcement of established law, if you ask me.

6. Obama recently golfing and shooting pool; YouTube - "Obama, we will not rest" - 64,100 results to watch.
7. Ken - You bore me.
Ken- 1. Iraq's "Not our problem anymore"
Let's revisit that one in a couple of months. The Dred-Scott Decision wasn't a problem...immediately.
2. The IRS is - having taxpayer paid employees claiming "The 5th" and is claiming (impossibly with today's IT redundancy)to not be able to provide relevant copies of E-mails.
3. The VA problem's "long term" - You betcha!!! CANDIDATE Obama campaigned on it, claiming he was going to fix it then, when it came to the fore a month ago, claimed he was unaware of it.
4. Burgdahl wasn't a POW. There is evidence leaning toward the possibility that he is a deserter. The terrorists he was TRADED FOR are non-state operators and should have been shot. Then they would not have been around for collateral.
5. Check out the multi-folded pressure on our Border Patrol since Obama went around Congress (again) with HIS "Dream Act".
For those squabbling for Impeachment that won't happen, why do you think Obama should be inmeached? Where has he committed, "Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors."
And be wary that you don't cite something you don't like (Immigration) as "treason" unless you are prepared to say that every President from Reagan to now should have been impeached.
Kun-"How else can we logically explain his inaction to perform his sworn duty."
What "plans" did Bush, Clinton and Reagan have for not performing their sworn duty in securing the border? I mean, if Obama must have a plan..they must have had one too.
1. Iraq's going to H-ell
Not our problem anymore.
2. the IRS has some answering to do
And they are.
3. our veterans can't receive timely medical treatment,
Long term problem, hardly unique to this administration
4. we traded a potential deserter for five high-value terrorist operators
If those Taliban people were guilty, they should have been brought on charges. They are also not "traded", meaning they are in Quatar and not Afghanistan.
5. and our southern border has gone to s-h-I-t.
Been that way for decades, not unique to this administration.
6. I saw our "Commander-in-Chief" shooting pool
Yep, he should stay in the Oval Office 24/7 like Bush, Clinton and Reagan did right?
"Why didnt Barry send in the National Guard a month ago like Boehner and the REPUBLICANS requested !!!"
Why didn't the Governor of Texas mobilize them?
I'm NOT laughing. I believe those that consider his inaction as 'ineptitude' should consider that, by acting off-guard, remote and unaffected to the point of not doing his job, while slipping his decisions into action behind the backs of congress, he is accomplishing an agenda that won't ultimately be kind to the established culture of America. I read that, by the year 2060, Hispanics will constitute the largest sector of the American populace. I won't live to see it, but my children may. How about if we go ahead and get a head start? Let's go ahead and teardown the Campus Martius Museum and erect a statue of Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna in it's place. After all, that's what political correctness will surely demand in a few decades at the present rate.
