I’m so confused.
It was only a month ago, that major scandal eruptions were rocking the Regime off balance, and Republicans like me were finally smelling blood in the water. We had Benghazi, which had been festering for months, and before that Fast and Furious, we had the wretched IRS scandal, which the average American could understand, the AP/James Rosen scandals that outraged the press, massive ongoing scandals at the EPA, and finally the NSA scandal – which seems to be mostly an issue about trust and competence. These scandals should be burying this Regime. Obama is sliding badly in the polls. People not only don’t trust this government – they fear it.
A month ago, I said, Obama’s agenda for his second term is dead. Even “the Stupid Party” knows better than to work with a Regime as corrupt and scandal plagued as this one, right? Time to stick a fork in Obama’s agenda, right?
We’ve got multiple instances of Regime officials lying under oath to Congress. Anyone at all have a problem with that? Republicans should be spending most of their time undoing the damage this Regime has done, fighting Obama’s agenda, investigating their many scandals, and holding hearings. Period.
What the hell are we doing “reaching across the aisle” to make deals with the same moral cretins who circled the wagons during Fast and Furious and Benghazi, wanted the tea party targeted by the IRS, and were against NSA spying (during the Bush years) before they were all gung-ho for it, (all hail Obama.)
It should be obvious by now, that everything this president does is destructive in one way or another. He started his second term with the transparent desire to win the House in 2014 so he could finish off the Republican party. And damned if we don’t have a Republican party that is helping him do it. We have a president who should be in a free-fall right now, but instead of kicking him while he’s down, we have Republicans who are helping him back up.
Ann Coulter dubbed Marco Rubio “the Jack Kevorkian of the Republican party” and she’s right. Instead of dropping comprehensive immigration like a hot potato after all of the scandals erupted, he stayed right with it – doing Obama’s bidding it turns out to pass the “Gang of Nine” bill.
Although some pundits are predicting that the Immigration bill will die in the House, this year, hope springs eternal when we have “conservatives” like Rep. Paul Ryan gushing that the Senate’s action “makes final passage on immigration ‘even more likely.’
Are you kidding me, Paul Ryan?
Do these R-words have any idea how badly they’re screwing up, right now?
Ryan talked about the House’s plan to a dubious Mark Levin, last week. Levin noted the government’s history of breaking its promises to secure the border, so why should we trust anything that’s passed, now?
Granted the House plan is leaps and bounds better than the Senate plan, but what happens when the two bodies reconcile their versions of reform? Secure the border now – then take incremental steps toward immigration reform.
We live in a country in which this happens, and Republicans shrug: IRS Sent $46,378,040 in Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens at 1 Atlanta Address:
(CNSNews.com) – The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically used by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.
The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.
Other locations on the IG’s Top Ten list for singular addresses that were theoretically used simultaneously by thousands of unauthorized alien workers, included an address in Oxnard, Calif, where the IRS sent 2,507 refunds worth $10,395,874; an address in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the IRS sent 2,408 refunds worth $7,284,212; an address in Phoenix, Ariz., where the IRS sent 2,047 refunds worth $5,558,608; an address in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where the IRS sent 1,972 refunds worth $2,256,302; an address in San Jose, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,942 refunds worth $5,091,027; and an address in Arvin, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,846 refunds worth $3,298,877.
Where’s the outrage?!
Meanwhile Obama is trying to use the “Cool factor” and public schools to sell his disastrous, unpopular and ungodly health care law.
Welcome to the USSA says Matt Bracken: California Schools to Train Kids to Sell ObamaCare:
Is anyone at GOP HQ looking at this or are they too busy trying to suck-up to college kids by holding “Google hangouts” about student loans?
And Rasmussen reported today that 72% Think NSA May Have Monitored Congress, Military Leaders, Judges.
72 freaking percent of us think that Obama’s NSA is likely to have “violated one of the country’s most cherished constitutional standards – the checks and balances between the three branches of government – by spying on the private communications of Congress and judges.”
This concern takes on even more significance given that 57% of voters believe it is likely the NSA data will be used by other government agencies to harass political opponents.
And what are our leaders in the Grand Old Party doing? Holding Google Hang-outs with teenyboppers!
