Obama Just Doesn’t Care What Americans Think, He is That Out of Touch … President Barack Obama Says That He & Team Obama Did Not Succeed in Effectively Selling His Policies

Barack Obama, the American people just don’t know the good things I have done for them …

In an interview this weekend with Bob Schieffer on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation,’ Barack Hussein Obama said that he took responsibility for the disastrous midterm election loses by Democrats last Tuesday and the “Buck stops with him”. Well kinda, there will be no confusing Obama with Harry S. Truman as a leader taking responsibility for his actions, policies and agenda. As reported at the NY Times Obama said, “that he and his White House team had not succeeded in effectively selling the benefits of his policies to the American people.” HUH? Then the out of touch Obama said, “It’s not enough just to build a better mousetrap, We’ve got to sell it.” WHAT? Barack Obama has yet to lead as president during his previous 6 years, all he has done is campaign and try to sell his snake oil. This fool actually believes his policies are good and the American people are just too stupid to realize their benefits, because he and Team Obama have not properly bull-shitted them. UNREAL. This president actually thinks his policies are good for Americans, even though all the signs show otherwise. As former Florida House Rep. Allen West  said back in 2012, “Barack Obama is serving America a crap sandwich with a smile on his face … But it’s still a crap sandwich.”

Just days after his party was routed in the midterm elections, President Obama said that he and his White House team had not succeeded in effectively selling the benefits of his policies to the American people, calling it a “failure of politics” that he must change in the final two years of his presidency.

“It’s not enough just to build a better mousetrap,” Mr. Obama said in an interview that was taped Friday at the White House and broadcast Sunday on the 60th anniversary of CBS’s “Face the Nation” program. “People don’t automatically come beating to your door. We’ve got to sell it. We’ve got to reach out to the other side and, where possible, persuade.”

Mr. Obama acknowledged bluntly that “we got beat” in the elections on Tuesday and said that the Democratic losses prompted him to have a “gut check” about what he needed to do differently. But as he has in the past, the president defended the merits of his administration’s policies, blaming the election results on a poor communications effort in the White House.

“There are times, there’s no doubt about it, where, you know I think we have not been successful in going out there and letting people know what it is that we’re trying to do and why this is the right direction,” Mr. Obama said.

Discussion of the 2014 midterm “ass-whuppin” begins at 3:52.

CBS – Face the Nation Transcript: [SM editors notes in blue]

BOB SCHIEFFER: I want to get back to foreign policy but I also want to ask you about what happened on Tuesday.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: We got beaten.

BOB SCHIEFFER: Yeah. Harry Truman once famously said if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.  [Where is Bo these days?] And I thought of that when I heard the chief of staff of the Democratic leader of the Senate, Harry Reid say and this is his quote, “The President’s approval rating is basically forty percent. What else more is there to say?” He’s basically saying it was your fault. Do you feel it was your fault?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, look, another saying of Harry Truman’s was, the buck stops with me. With me, the buck stops right here at my desk. And so whenever, as the head of the party, it doesn’t do well, I’ve got to take responsibility for it. The message that I took from this election and we’ve seen this in a number of elections, successive elections, is people want to see this city work. [So the message Obama took is that people want to see DC to work, that is why they soundly rejected Democrats, the GOP gained more House seats, won what will be a net 9 US Senate seats in gaining control and governorships in states like Mass, Illinois and Delaware? So in order for Washington to work the people said we want GOP control and policies.]  And they feel as if it’s not working. The economy has improved significantly. [Really the economy has improved? A record number of Americans are on food stamps, the job participation rate is at an all-time low and Americans who had lost their well-paying full time jobs have replaced them with part time and ones paying much, much less. Sorry Barack, Americans know the economy is not better.]  There’s no doubt about it. We had a jobs report for October that showed that once again over two hundred thousand jobs created. [Tell some one now making $15 an hour when they previously made $30 that their new job is fantastic].  We’ve now created more than ten million. The unemployment rate has come down faster than we could have anticipated. Just to give you some perspective, Bob, we’ve created more jobs in the United States than every other advanced economy combined since I came into office. And so we’re making progress but people still feel like their wages haven’t gone up, their incomes haven’t gone up, still hard to save for retirement, still hard to send a kid to college. And then they see Washington gridlocked and they’re frustrated. And, you know, they know one person in Washington and that’s the President of the United States. So I’ve got to make this city work better for them. [No, you and your socialist policies need to get out of the way for the US economy to flourish.]

BOB SCHIEFFER: But is it what you thought it would be?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: You know, here– here is one thing that I will say that campaigning and governance are two different things. I’ve ran two successful campaigns. [No, you rode to victory in 2008 on the myth that you were a different kind of politician and were aided by an all too willing MSM that refused to vet you. Then in 2012, you stole the election visa-vie the IRS attacking conservative non-profit groups. Then there are the numeous scandals like Benghazi-gate where the Obama administration purposely lied to the American people as to what happened prior to the 2012 presidential election].  And anybody who has seen me on the campaign trail can tell how much I love just being with the American people. And hearing what they care about and what– you know how passionate I am about trying to help them. When you start governing, there is a tendency sometimes for me to start thinking. As long as I get the policy right then that’s what should matter. And, you know, people have asked, you know, what you need to do differently going forward and I think you do that, you got to check after every election.

BOB SCHIEFFER: What do you need to do differently?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: And I think that one thing that I do need to constantly remind myself and my team are is it’s not enough just to build the better mousetrap. [What a fitting term, mousetraps kill things.] People don’t automatically come beating to your door. We’ve got to sell it, we’ve got to reach out to the other side and where possible persuade. And I think there are times, there’s no doubt about it where, you know, I think we have not been successful in going out there and letting people know what it is that we are trying to do and why this is the right direction. So there– there is a failure of politics there that we have got– we got to improve on. [How long have they had to sell Obamacare, the Obama economy and his agenda? What do they need, another 20 years? They people do not need to be sold anything, they experience it every day.]

BOB SCHIEFFER: What criticisms of your administration do you think are valid?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, I just mentioned one. I think that what is also true is that, you know, no matter how frustrating it can sometimes be for any President to deal with an opposition that has, yeah, pretty stubborn, and where there are really strong differences, you just got to keep on trying. [Code for, I just following the teachings of Saul Alinsky and double down on my failed, hated policies].

The folks at ‘This is Spinal Tap’ weigh in on the Obama presidency … The review on Shark sandwich is pretty much the same as the one for the Obama agenda, and yes, they can say that.

WOW, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews & Al Sharpton Tear Into Kentucky Democrat Senate Loser Alison Lundergan Grimes Concession Speech … “You Need to Be Gracious!”

WOW, WHO WOULD HAVE EXPECTED THE FOLLOWING FROM THE FOLKS AT MSNBC … CAMPAIGN COVERAGE AT MSLSD HAVE A MOMENT OF LUCIDITY.

How bad was the election tsunami and tidal wave that ripped through the Democrat party and Barack Obama last night during the 2014 midterm that saw the GOP pick up at least 7 US Senate seats, possibly 9, at least 12 House seats and governorships in places like Massachusetts, Illinois and Maryland … the MSNBC election coverage team of Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton ripped into Alison Lundergan Grimes for her concession speech, following her Kentucky Senate drubbing at the hands of Mitch McConnell 56% to 41%. Her concession speech was hardly gracious.

I have to give credit where credit is due, Matthews and Sharpton were spot on in their analysis.

“That wasn’t your usual concession speech,” Chris Matthews began. “Usually you congratulate the winner. You say something gracious. You move on. You unify the state to some extent. It was a partisan speech. Fair enough, it’s her call,” he added.

“It wasn’t a concession speech. Usually, you concede,” Al Sharpton added, noting that she made the Democrats turn on her when she infamously refused to say whether she voted for Obama during an editorial board Q&A. “You can represent what you represent. But you respect the winner, and you pledge to move on together.”

Rachel Maddow thought that Grimes may have been “shellshocked” by how badly she lost (polls showed her running neck-in-neck with McConnell) and Chris Hayes added that McConnell’s entire strategy was to tie her to the deeply-maligned President. “She was unable to say that she voted for Barack Obama was because Barack Obama is deeply unpopular,” he pointed out.

You can watch Grimes not-so concession speech HERE.  This is what happens when you have delusion views and try and win at all cost, but cant even say who you voted for. Stay classy Alison, although last night was hardly one of your shining moments. I guess the good folks of Kentucky saw your true colors in defeat, a resounding defeat.

Sour Grapes at MSNBC after Republican Mitch McConnell Defeats Their Lib Alison Lundergan Grimes … “She Had the Audacity to Run”

NO TINGLES UP HIS LEG TONIGHT, BA-HA,HA,HA … BETTER CALL THE WAHMBULANCE FOR MATTHEWS.

There may actually be only one thing better than watching a big night for the GOP in a political election and that is watching the liberal-Left lose their minds over at MSLSD and whine about their candidates lose. Chris Matthews was obviously not feeling the tingles up his leg tonight as he bitterly stated, “She had the audacity to run against this incredibly powerful incumbent with all the tricky moves up his sleeves, and sarcasm and ridicule … She’ll be back”. Then another liberal ass-hat went on to make a ridiculous comparison to McConnell’s victory to that of Harry Reid’s win by the seat of his pants. Hey folks at MSNBC, I realize that your math skills may not be top notch due to common core,

McConnell won his race despite Kentucky voters’ negative views of him. The Republican incumbent has a 52% unfavorable rating to just 46% favorable in the NBC News exit poll, which is usually dangerous territory for a sitting senator. Fortunately for McConnell, Grimes fell short of the challenge.

Fell short? Sorry, but this was far from a close race in the end. One might think it was made bigger because the liberal MSM wanted to make it appear closer than it really was.

Frightening Predeictions for Senate Democrats in Upcoming Midterm Elections from NY Times and WAPO

It’s Halloween time, but Senate Democrats have more to fear than ghosts, goblins, witches and vampires … NT Times and WAPO predict Democrats are the Walking “political” Dead …

With just days to go before the 2014 midterm November 4th elections, two very liberal papers, the New York Times and Washington Post, are predicting a GOP Senate takeover. The NY Times predicts that there is a 69% chance that the Republicans will win control of the US Senate.  According to the Times, Republicans will win Louisiana, Arkansas, South Dakota and Kentucky, West Virginia and Montana, leaving the seven most competitive states below in question. The NY Times predicts that Democrats will win the senate races in New Hampshire, North Carolina and Kansas; however, the GOP will run the rest of the seats in play in Georgia, Iowa, Alaska and Colorado. If the New York Times is correct, the GOP will hold a 52-48 control of the Senate after the elections.

Senate_2014 predictions_NYT

According to our statistical election-forecasting machine, the Republicans have a moderate edge, with about a 69% chance of gaining a majority.

State-by-State Probabilities #
To forecast each party’s chance of gaining a majority, our model first calculates win probabilities for each individual Senate race. In addition to the latest polls, it incorporates the candidates’ political experience, fund-raising, a state’s past election results and national polling. More about our methodology.

However, if Democrats think that the NYT’s 69% chance of a GOP victory is bad … the WAPO is predicting a 95% chance of the Republican party taking back control of the US Senate.

The model’s factors fall into three categories:

1) The national landscape. On average, the better things are going in the country, the better the president’s party will do in an election.  We capture national conditions using two measures: presidential approval and change in gross domestic product. At the same time, the president’s party usually does worse in midterm years than presidential years even after accounting for the first two measures, so our model takes account of that, too.

2) The partisanship of the state or district. Obviously, House and Senate candidates will do better when their party dominates a district or state. We measure this with Obama’s share of the major-party vote in 2012. In Senate races, we also include the incumbent’s share of the major-party vote from the election six years before, which is the incumbent’s share of the Democratic and Republican votes, combined with an indicator for whether that incumbent is running or the seat is open. The incumbent’s previous election matters mainly when the incumbent is running again.

3) Key features of the race. The model currently takes account of whether the incumbent is running, which captures the well-known incumbency advantage in congressional elections. For the Senate, we also build in each candidate’s level of experience in elective office. In the Senate, we categorize experience into five levels, from someone who has never held an elective office to an incumbent senator. For states where there hasn’t yet been a Senate primary, we impute candidate experience using historical averages from similar races.  (After the primaries, we will also add candidate experience to the House model.  There, the measure will be simpler: whether the candidate has held any elective office.)

Question: The NY Times and WAPO have been among the two most liberal media outlets that have carried the water for Barack Obama and Democrats, why are they calling the election now for the GOP? Is it because they want to put out faux-news and give Republicans voters a false sense of security or is it because they see the handwriting on the wall and are trying to mantain some sort of credibility by finally reporting the truth?

Harry Reid

Harry Reid literally begs for money as he sees his job of Democrat Senate Majority Leader slipping away. Just curious Dingy Harry, if you can triple one’s gift, you need money how? I have a deal for you, You can just double my donation of $0.00.

But I’m emailing once more because this moment is absolutely critical. I know you’re a busy person, but this is an absolute MUST-READ:
Our Final Weekend Get Out The Vote Push is on the chopping block: We’re still $1,389,071 short with 24 hours left.
If we don’t fill that budget gap, we’ll be forced to scale back our plans to mobilize 575,000 voters this weekend. These are voters who could determine the outcome of the whole Senate.
I’m begging for your help to close the gap IMMEDIATELY. If we fall short before the last end-of-month deadline tomorrow, our chance to keep the Senate gets a whole lot smaller.
Will you pitch in to the Final Weekend GOTV Push before the final deadline in 24 hours? We’ll triple-match your gift.

Other nightmarish 2014 US Senate predictions for Democrats. None of the pollsters are predicting that Democrats will maintain control of the Senate and Harry Reid (NV-D) will no longer be Senate Majority Leader.

SICK … Convicted Cop Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal Gives Graduation Speech via VIDEO at Goddard College in Vermont

What the hell ever happened to the Green mountain state of Vermont, Ethan Allen would be disgusted.

On Sunday, convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal gave a graduation speech to students at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont by video.  Unbelievable. Mumia Abu-Jamal is currently serving a life sentence for the 1981 shooting death and murder of Philedapphia police officer  Daniel Faulkner. It is actually the second time Abu-Jamal has spoken at graduation, but what would you expect from a liberal arts college in the People’s Republic of Vermont where this cop killer received a degree.

Maureen Faulkner, the widow of Daniel Faulkner, called choosing Abu-Jamal “despicable” and “not appropriate.” The police in Philadelphia held a silent vigil for 25 minutes Sunday to protest Mumia’s speech. As stated by Chief Inspector Anthony Boyle, “We need to demonstrate how ludicrous this is.” Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) urged the Vermont college on Thursday to revoke its invitation to have Mumia Abu-Jamal as a commencement speaker. Michael O’Neil, the president of the Vermont Troopers’ Association also asked Goodard College to rescind Abu-Jamal invitation.

VIDEO – Fox News

On Sunday, Mumia Abu-Jamal spoke by video to 20 students receiving bachelor degrees Sunday from Goddard College in Plainfield.

He told the graduates to “think about the myriad of problems that beset this land and strive to make it better.”

Abu-Jamal said Goddard reawakened his love of learning and — in his mind — allowed him to leave death row and travel the world.

The decision to allow Abu-Jamal to speak angered police and others in Vermont and Pennsylvania. Abu-Jamal was initially sentenced to death in the killing of Officer Daniel Faulkner but re-sentenced to life in 2012.

VIDEO – Oct. 5, 2014 Goddard College Commencement Speech by Mumia Abu-Jamal

Get ready for the LIBERAL double standard to allow a cop killer to speak at a commencement ceremony and call it freedom of speech. In a statement posted on the school’s website, Interim President Bob Kenny said that by selecting Abu-Jamal the students are showing “their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.” REALLY? So this liberal college president celebrates the First Amendment of Freedom of Speech when it serves his radical liberal views, but has an issue with that same First Amendment when it comes to freedom of the Press as the college closed the graduation to the media after claiming it was open. Goddard College also claimed they wanted to protect the student’s privacy. Wat a bunch of gutless cowards, so brave in saying they want a cop killer as their commencement speaker, but don’t want the public to know who they are. And you wonder where gutless, double standard liberals are spawn from.

The ceremony was originally planned for 4 p.m. and media was told it was open to the public.

However, two days ago, college leaders changed the time to 1 p.m. without notifying the media.

They cited security reasons, saying they received threats this past week.

They also wanted to protect the student’s privacy.

The Untold Story by the MSM … Ali Muhammad Brown Called Murdered 19 Year Old Brendan Tevlin as a “Just Kill” and said Was an act of “Vengeance” Against U.S. Military Killings in the Middle East (Update: Audio, PLJ’s Todd Pettengill)

The murder of 19 year Brendan Tevlin was an act of terrorism and a “Just Kill”.

Brendan Tevlin, a 19 year old college student was found shot to death in his SUV in West Orange New Jersey on June 25, 2014. It received little media coverage and the police initially called it as a robbery gone wrong.That is what it may have fist appeared to be; however, the murder of 19 year old Brendan Tevlin was far from a robbery, it was an act of terrorism and as the defendant, Ali Muhammad Brown, called it … a “Just Kill”. Ali Muhammad Brown, a devout Muslin told prosecutors that, “All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life.” Ali Muhammad Brown was earlier charged with aggravated murder in the June 1 shooting deaths of two young men in Seattle, WA, Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young and with first-degree aggravated murder in the April 27 shooting of 30-year-old Leroy Henderson in Skyway, south of Seattle.

Listen to 99.5 PLJ’s radio host Todd Pettengill from The Todd Show.

Please make sure to listen to NY radio personality Todd Pettengill’s comments. It is a must listen. Here is a blast from the past. I used to listen to Todd back in the 90′s when he was a co-host on WPLJ’s morning show with Scott Shannon. And before that when he worked at 92FLY in Albany, NY. Here is an individual that does morning radio, not hard news and yet he has done more to cover this story than all of the MSM combined. Once again we are witness to political correctness where the MSM refuses to cover what they consider uncomfortable. It is okay to riot in the streets when a black teen is shot by a white police officer, but it is not okay to even cover the story when a white teen is murdered as a result of domestic terrorism by one who follows Islam?

Brendan Tevlin’s murder evidence that ‘domestic terrorism is already here,’ says radio host (AUDIO):

Todd Pettengill, host of WPLJ’s “The Todd Show”, discussed the death of Brendan Tevlin for more than eight minutes this morning, asking why the case has not received more attention despite the alleged murderer’s admissions that he killed Tevlin as an act of vengeance for U.S. military actions in the Middle East.

“It was in fact an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people,” he said.

Essex County authorities have charged 29-year-old Ali Muhammad Brown with killing Tevlin in a West Orange intersection on June 25. Since being taken into custody on July 18, he has confessed to the murder, along with three others in Washington state, saying they were carried out as retribution for innocent lives lost in Iraq, Syria and other parts of the Islamic world.

Pettengil criticized President Barack Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for not referencing the case in recent addresses and downplaying the level of threat radical Islamists currently living in America could pose.

He also chided the media for not bringing the story to the national stage, and focusing instead on other protests such as those in Ferguson, Mo., where an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, was shot to death by a police officer last month.

Ali-Muhammed-Brown

Ali Muhammad Brown

I understand why the MSM did not cover this story initially as it may have appeared as just another tragic shooting death in the commission of a robbery. But that is not the case now. This was a terror act. Where is the MSM, where is Eric Holder, where is Barack Obama? How is an America 19 year old boy murdered on American soil by a devout Muslim as an act of vengeance against US military operations in the Middle East and it is not covered as the terrorist act that it is?

Brendan Tevlin

Brown is a devout Muslim opposed to U.S. intervention overseas, especially Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran, prosecutors said.

“All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life,” he told investigators, according to the documents.

Brown further justified killing Tevlin by claiming the shooting was a “just kill,” meaning he targeted an adult man and did not put any women, children or elderly people in danger.

In police interviews, Brown described the U.S.’s military campaign in the Middle East as evil and said if a “man sees evil, then he must take action against that evil,” the court papers show.

Police maintained that the June 25 shooting started as a robbery.

Officers said Brown fired 10 shots into Tevlin’s Jeep Liberty when it was stopped at intersection early in the morning in West Orange, N.J. Then he got into the 19-year-old’s car and drove it to a nearby apartment complex to abandon it

Barack Obama Says He Does Not Need Congress To Wage War on ISIS

WELCOME TO OBAMA IN WONDERLAND …

The tin-pot dictator Barack Obama told Congressional leaders he does not need their vote to wage war against ISIS. Isn’t that rich. Even when so many are on board with collectively annihilating ISIS and it is Obama who has been pulled into this kicking and screaming, the president took the opportunity to do what he does best, be negative and divisive. With the polls showing that an overwhelming majority think that Obama has been to lax in dealing with ISIL ISIS and want more action taken against the terror group. So why no vote? Isn’t this the same president who for 6 years has been bitching and moaning about no bipartisanship in Washington? Is this a matter of Obama wanting to go it alone because he is a narcissist, is it because he does not want to show the optic ever of Democrats and the GOP coming together on any issue, or is it because he does not want liberal Democrats to have to vote for war ahead of the 2014 midterms and upset their radical left-wing base?

This is what happens when you have a president that does everything with a political taint to it, rather than what is best for America.

Obama_general

President Obama told congressional leaders at a White House meeting on Tuesday he doesn’t need their authorization to expand his military campaign against Islamic terrorists.

The president offered the assurance one day before a prime-time address he’s scheduled to give to the nation.

The president is also weighing the possibility of airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria, as well as asking the United Nations to pass a binding resolution requiring governments to prevent the flow of foreign fighters to the region.

While Obama told the House and Senate leaders he would welcome congressional action that demonstrates a unified front, the president told the bipartisan group “he has the authority he needs to take action against (ISIS) in accordance with the mission he will lay out in his address,” according to the White House.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have called on Obama to better clarify his strategy this week, and the White House has said the president will offer a frank “assessment of this critical national security priority.”

White House press secretary Josh Earnest cautioned that the address would not provide a timeline for the military campaign, nor was Obama expected to outline costs for the operation.

Mitch McConnell leads push for ISIL vote:

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is emerging as the most outspoken congressional leader pushing for a vote on President Barack Obama’s plan to take on the Islamic State, even as the White House insists the president already has authority to take on the militant group.

On Tuesday, McConnell aggressively called on Obama to back a vote in Congress on his military strategy before the November elections, which will pit the GOP leader against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in a pivotal race that could determine control of the Senate.

“He really ought to ask for our support, whether or not he may think he’s authorized to do what he intends to do. I think it’s in his best interest,” McConnell told a reporter.

And Democratic leaders are also trying to stay out of the fray, though some rank-and-file Democrats in the Senate are agitating for a roll call on continued airstrikes in Iraq or an expansion into Syria.

FLASHBACK 2007 … However, that was not always the case. The Gateway Pundit reminds us of Obama, in his own words, criticizing GWB in 2007 for actually going to Congress and getting approval as opposed to Obama who says he does not need Congress to wage for on ISIS. HUH? Bush followed the War Powers Ac in Iraq and that is not good enough for then, Senator Obama. My how times have changed. Hear Obama criticize how the president, Congress and the MSM have failed the American people. Did he just say that the MSM reported spin instead of facts? Seriously?

Greta Van Susteren Says the Obama White House Pressured Her to Get FOX News Reporter to Back Down on Benghazi Investigation

More dirty Chicago-style politics and shredding of the First Amendment by the Obama Administration …

FOX News’ Greta Van Susteren admitted Friday in “Off the Record” that she was called by the Obama White House and pressured to get Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin (VIDEO) to back down on her Benghazi investigation. So much for The US Constitution, the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press. Of course we know the rest of the lapdog media was more than willing to oblige Obama.

“Since day one of Benghazi FOX News has been aggressively investigating. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been more like pulling teeth to get answers from the Obama administration. The Obama administration’s behavior post Benghazi has been weird. Like they’re trying to hide something. First that silly story about that video. Remember Susan Rice on all the Sunday talk shows? Even President Obama kept talking about the video for weeks. So FOX continued to press for information … A few weeks later when FOX news reporter Jennifer Griffin said she was told there was a stand-down order at Benghazi, I got a weird call from the Obama administration trying to pressure me to get Jennifer to back down on her report. I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty. Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”

IRS-Gate Continues … IRS Now Says It Has Lost Emails of Five Other Employees Related to Congressional Probes

NEXT TIME THE IRS HARASSES YOU, IMAGINE IF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU USED THE EXACT SAME TACTICS THEY HAVE USED TO EXPLAIN AWAY LOST EMAILS, DOCUMENTS, BLACKBERRY’S AND PLEADING THE 5TH … 

IRS-GATE CONTINUES … The Internal Revenue Service is now claiming that they have lost emails from five other IRS employees, related to Congressional probes into the IRS targeting conservative non-profit Tea Party groups,  including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for tax-exempt status. Imagine that, what a coincidence? Right Wind News says, “at this point, even liberals have to admit that this stinks like a 5 day old fish.” I am not so sure, I believe they have lost their sense of smell and sense of loyalty to country, rather than party.  It is true that all,  including elected Democrat politicians, the MSM and Democrat voters can see the IRS corruption, lying and cover-up , but are completely unwilling to hold the IRS accountable. Of course it would be a different story if they were the one’s being targeted, see Richard Nixon.

Obama_Nixon

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa stated, “The IRS’s ever-changing story is practically impossible to follow at this point, as they modify it each time to accommodate new facts. This pattern must stop.” Attention Darrell Issa, House Republicans, et all, the only way the IRS’s pattern is going to stop is to defund the agency and abolish it. Enough is enough, never did our Founding Fathers ever foresee the creation of any central government agency with such unchecked powers to target political enemies.

The IRS said Friday that it has lost emails from five other employees involved in congressional probes into the agency’s targeting of conservative groups, leading one top Republican to declare “this pattern must stop.”

The announcement comes after the agency said in June that it could not locate an untold number of emails to and from Lois Lerner, who headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The revelation set off a new round of investigations and congressional hearings.

On Friday, the IRS issued a report to Congress saying the agency also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe, including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for tax-exempt status.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, whose committee has been investigating the scandal, said the disclosure is yet another example of the Obama administration changing its story on the scandal.

“The IRS’s ever-changing story is practically impossible to follow at this point, as they modify it each time to accommodate new facts,” Issa, R-Calif., said. “This pattern must stop.”
