Priorities, Priorities – 4 American Men dead vs. Obama’s Image

Benghazi victims

The 4 Men who died at Benghazi while Obama went to bed.

Brit Hume, a “Political Commentator” and television journalist for Fox News, says Obama played the invisible man during Benghazi, but he sure is concerned about the NSA Scandal.

“Obama practically disappeared from the scene (no calls to Cabinet officials, no convening in the Situation Room) on the night of the Benghazi, Libya, attack. He seems more concerned on the NSA flap with distancing himself from conservatives whom he loathes (“I am not Dick Cheney”) and in Syria on protecting his self-image (he ends wars, doesn’t start them) than in taking the heat from Democrats. When coverage is not glowing, he becomes cranky with the media (as does his spokesman). He is most at ease campaigning before a crowd (whether it is an election or not) when he can accuse opponents of ill-will and flail away at straw men with no interruption.” Read More

Obama Watch From Target Point Consulting

Obama’s continuing favorability is not such a surprise in light of charts like the one below. Our “Gimme, gimme, gimme More” society got this jerk elected to the most powerful seat in the world, and then got his ass elected again. Everything about Obama disgusts me. His arrogance, mainly, and his disregard for America’s traditional values. Everything else stems from those two things, in my opinion.

I stop by Target Point Consulting once every once in a while and was amused to see their May 15-16 Obama Watch chart (see below). Amused … it is a SAD day when seeing that the only item discussed favorably with regard to our current pResident was entitlements. Let me say that again … the ONLY item that Obama’s Administration had positive remarks about was entitlements.

Are you surprised?

Big surprise: Wife of former IRS director works for liberal group ‘laying the foundation for reform’

We already know that Big Media & the Obama Administration are in cahoots, and we know that there are some familial relationships between people in the Obama Administration and some of the big networks.

Obamas Press - Familial Relationships with Obama Admin


These Familial Relationships between Big Media & Obama’s Administration continue to show the arrogance or “the one”

Before we get to the story, cue Drebin:


From the Daily Caller:

Shulman’s wife Susan L. Anderson is the senior program advisor for the Washington-based nonprofit organization Public Campaign, which claims that it “is laying the foundation for reform by working with a broad range of organizations, including local community groups, around the country that are fighting for change and national organizations whose members are not fairly represented under the current campaign finance system.”

That “broad range of organizations” Public Campaign works with wouldn’t include the IRS, would it?

To top off the curious connection, the CEO of the organization Shulman’s wife works for downplayed conservatives’ concerns:

“There are legitimate questions to be asked about political groups that are hiding behind a 501(c)4 status,” Nyhart said in a statement provide to ABC. “It’s unfortunate a few bad apples at the IRS will make it harder for those questions to be asked without claims of bias.”

As of right now the number of “few bad apples” looks like it could be around 88.

In a related story, the new defense of the Obama administration is that Shulman didn’t visit the White House well over 100 times within a two year period, but rather the number of visits could have been as low as 11.

At about the 1:10 mark of the video below from a House hearing, Virginia Democrat Gerry Connolly mentions to Shulman that he visited the White House 118 times and Shulman didn’t object at all. You’d think the difference between 11 and 118 would be so great that Shulman would have wanted to correct the record:

Even a White House spokesperson wasn’t going to try to spin 157 down to 11:

When asked about Pfeiffer’s tweet in the White House press briefing Friday afternoon, White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest did not dispute that Shulman visited the White House at least 157 times, only saying that the president was committed to “transparency” and that most of the meetings Shulman attended involved Obamacare.

Earnest forgot about all the Easter Egg Rolls.

Update: More of your tax dollars at play.

The Grounding of Big Government

By Glenn Reynolds

GREG GUTFELD: THE GROUNDING OF BIG GOVERNMENT. “Nevermind the appeasers–the IRS scandal IS a big deal. It’s such a big deal, it could ruin the agency forever, and take a few others down with it. And sure, it’s a lot of fun on the right to be clamoring for scalps–like, who should be fired and how many. But pink slips are small potatoes. The end game is way, way bigger than that stuff. What we are witnessing is a collapse of trust in big government, which ultimately–to our benefit as small-government types–leads to a permanent undermining of the whole system.”

Or as Peggy Noonan said: “What does it mean when half the country—literally half the country—understands that the revenue-gathering arm of its federal government is politically corrupt, sees them as targets, and will shoot at them if they try to raise their heads? That is the kind of thing that can kill a country, letting half its citizens believe that they no longer have full political rights.”

Liberals just can’t see past Bush!

I’ve been spending some time on Twitter tonight and reading the links that interested me when I came across the story on Mediate about Eric Bolling hanging up on Geraldo’s “show” mid-interview. As I usually do, I read the story and then continued down to the comments. /sigh ….

Bush has been out of office, shoot, out of the public eye, for 5 years now and the liberals still bring up his name at every opportunity. The refrain “…but Booooosh” echoes throughout the progressive/liberal dialogue. I’m about as sick of hearing that as I am sick of being called a racist for disagreeing with Oblamer. Ya know what? I don’t want the white guy under Oblamer in there either!

Not racist, impeach them both

For the record, I never had a problem with Bush. I also didn’t pay attention. I was very UN-into politics. Didn’t care, and didn’t care to care. Things were good for me and mine and I just plain didn’t pay attention. However, since then I have read quite a bit of these “but Boooosh” arguments, and they fall flat on their face time and time again. The Patriot Act is the sole item from Bush’s Administration that I have looked into that gives me pause. The government, who apparently can’t even look after their own, want to look into me? Yeah, I don’t like that one bit. BUT, I understand the reasoning behind it.

At the Mediate link there is  a commenter who is obviously still hung up on Booosh. He/she apparently thinks every conservative is a racist, old, white guy. He/she said used that on several comments to people who replied to anything that he/she wrote. I couldn’t help but get into the fray …

You’re right, I do pretty much hate this pResident. He’s done nothing but marginalize us around the world, pit races against one another and send his cronies after those who dared oppose him. For the record, I’m a white female. Calling everyone who opposes this joke of a pResident old and racist got old a long time ago, y’all really need to find a new line, that one isn’t working anymore. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t pay attention when Bush was President. Things were going well, for me and mine, and politics didn’t interest me. It wasn’t until it became clear that so many were going to vote for a man who had done almost nothing but vote “present” his entire career that I became alarmed enough, and interested enough, to get involved. So the “where were you when Bush” lines don’t work either, I wasn’t paying attention. I’m paying attention now and I’m horrified, scared, and absolutely appalled at what is happening to our country. I don’t understand how people can continue to support this administration. Forget about Bush, it’s not about Bush dammit. It’s about NOW. Bush has NOTHING to do with this. It’s just another red herring. Oblamer is what is happening to this country right now, and it’s NOT good.

I hadn’t planned to publish tonight, but things happen, so there ya go. I’ll be publishing a new one Sunday, hope to see you back then!
