Obama has fired many military leaders- INTIMIDATION? Obama administration has an interesting list of controversial action. SPY ON REPORTERS, TAX INVESTIGATIONS ON INDIVIDUALS CRITICALOF THEM, IRS DELAY OF TAX EXEMPT STATUS FOR CONSERVATIVE ORGANIZATIONS, REVERSAL OF ACTIONS REQUIRED BY EXISTING LAW .....ON AND ON!! BENGAZI IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION. IN THIS CASE PROTECTING THE RE-ELECTION POSSIBILITY FOR OBAMA. WE ARE IN A VERY SAD ERA OF POLITICAL HISTORY AS THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC IS BEING ABUSED BY AN EXECUTIVE WHO COMPLETELY IGNORES HIS OATH OF OFFICE TO ADVANCE HIS AGENDA TO "TRANSFORM AMERICA".
The last point is the most damaging . The very fact of seeking protection from self incrimination by citing 5th amendment protection is more than a "SMIDGEN OF CORRUPTION". Also very significant is this 2nd hearing was preceded by an announcement that Lerner's attorney had said she agreed to testify. Given that her use of 5th amendment in the prior appearance was ruled invalid by the congressional committee because she had made her "DONE NOTHING WRONG" statement that waived that right it is clear to me that Issa was played and his reaction to quickly shut down the hearing is understandable. The propaganda approach intended is evidenced by Congressman Cummings attempt to make a propaganda statement which Chairman Issa also shut off. Most congressional democrats - in line with so many of the Obama administration officials- are determined to lie to american citizens and cover up illegal actions to protect this President's efforts to "TRANSFORM AMERICA". Progressives seem unable to accept the Constitutional Republic of a free citizenry and the free enterprise system and are also determined to have government controls dictate life in the future.l

Common People - who are they? The taxpayers who fund approximately 1/2 of government spending which leaves the remaining funds to come from increased deficit spending: that is - borrowed money increasingly condemning future taxpayers to unsustainable burdens. Clearly not in your view - my guess is you believe "COMMON PEOPLE are dependent upon government to care for them and their families because they are unable to do so themselves! Unfortunately there are far to many government employees and union members and entitlement recipients who obtain benefits way beyond reasonable and in some cases not warranted at all. The quid pro quo is of course - to continue voting in significant numbers to return "progressive radical politicians" who will continue deficit spending and increased benefits. Apathetic taxpayers who unfortunately are not interested enough to vote allow the Propagandist Main stream media" to ignore the damage to the freedoms and future of the citizens being governed by Executive abuse of power and a leftist agenda intended to "TRANSFORM AMERICA" so the "common people" will only be allowed to have what the government says they can have!!.

I am increasingly annoyed by the comments which decry the Obama agenda and main stream media "propaganda" because they ignore the fact that we have no one to blame but "OURSELVES" that is : "the people who pay taxes and do not vote." The left gets it's "entitlement recipients" and other big government advocates such as "employees of all levels of government" and "Union members" who contribute to the leftist politicians and work for their elections. Taxpayers on the other hand who might object to the deficit spending and future damage to the economic freedom and opportunity of our children are "Condemned " by propagandist charges of racism et al. and stand on the sidelines to apathetic to be involved. Tea Party activists showed that a roused electorate can bring new political ideas to the various elected offices in this increasingly "progressive" dominated governmental structure that is leading the country toward a "TRANSFORMATION" away from the "FREE ENTERPRISE SYSTEM AND INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS" guaranteed by our CONSTITUTIONAL Republic form of government according to the law toward Socialistic Executive Mandated Power to impose government controls. Elections in 2014 and 2016 must have a much more significant percentage of "TAXPAYER" involvement to stop Obama's agenda and return Constitutional principle to all levels of government or it will be damn near impossible to reverse the "RADICAL PROGRESSIVE'S agenda intention to increasingly slide toward a welfare and socialist oriented state that will see the ultimate demise of our Constitutional freedoms..
Senator Carfaro is in line with the "progressive"" mindset. Lies are an acceptable tactic to advance the agenda of "Government Control". Clearly the government employees that were already on the case failed miserably in their protection of this student when he attended the "PUBLIC" school run by the government. Apparently the child was withdrawn due some one at the school "suspecting" child abuse. Nothing apparently was considered as necessary for follow up by any social agency so this idiots solution is to require all HOME SCHOOL families to be subject to visits by these absolutely failed government agents. !!! This is "PROGRESSIVE THINKING" at its most elevated - best intentions -that is "never let a crisis go to waste"! Always advance a progressive solution! lie if it is necessary its OK!

Even if Kudlow is correct that "Republicans have been politically saved" -it is a sad commentary that he clearly believes the media would "blame" the republicans if another crisis over deficit spending and debt ceiling increases had to be faught again in JAN/FEB! 2014 election hopefully will return a Republican majority to the Senate. McConnell is being hypocritical by indicating his intention to make a fuss before this bill passes the Senate.. He was nowhere when the fight was undertaken and will not participate in a real fight against the agenda of Obama. He needs to be defeated and removed from the Senate. Hopefully, an entirely new leadership of the majority Republican Senate can emerge next year. I for one would recommend the Republican's do not reverse the nuclear option but bludgeon the democrats into as weak a position as possible in reward for their having diminished the minority ability to participate in what was the most "DELIBERATIVE BODY". Republican control of Congress will be only marginally better if there are not more Constitutionally sound republicans elected. Hence, let's hope Kudlow is in fact correct that this far less than perfect deal will be politically beneficial for the election of republicans in 2014.

It is appropriate to point out the hypocrisy (LIES) perpetrated to advance the agenda and or stigmatize critics that is standard operating practice of the "PROPAGANDIST" main stream media. While Ann is correct that these leftist bias media are no longer in "CONTROL" of debate they are and remain prominent in their influence upon the decisions of the politicians who rely on the votes of the mass of people who don't get much more than their propaganda as input. Sadly, the opposition politicians are not willing or able to act with courage to challenge the lies and deceptions as the "GO ALONG TO GET ALONG MINDSET" is the dominant model of incumbent office holders in Congress regardless of party affiliation. Voters who pay the taxes that can only cover about 1/2 of what these idiots spend every year to maintain their positions by allowing "entitlements' and other government supplied incentives increase the numbers of people dependent upon their deficit spending excesses and massive debt load that condemns our children to an unsustainable future. Only the elimination of the apathy that results in voter turn out so low that the "GOVERNMENT BENEFICIARIES" are in the majority in electing these officials can reverse the direction of this agenda intending to "TRANSFORM AMERICA". 2014 and 2016 must see the beginnings of the return of voters to the active rolls of influencing the office holders that will support the traditional Constitutional ideals for a limited government. New conservative candidates that will defend our free enterprise system and individual freedoms while providing "OPPORTUNITY" rather than "ENTITLEMENTS" must replace the democrat and RINO "stateist's" who are crippling our children's future. If we fail we will have no one to blame but ourselves notwithstanding the intentional lies and deception advanced by these incumbents and their propagandist media..
It is a logical conclusion that Obama's administration recognizes they are no longer able to legislatively achieve any significant agenda items. Therefore, the reliance upon "EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND EXECUTIVE REGULATIONS will become even more prominent in the remainder of the President's term. The Republican majority in the House alone will not be able to prevent Obama from stepping beyond the Constitutional powers of his Office. The filing of impeachment charges citing the many already unconstitutional steps of this administration and then preparing constant additions to those charges for every obvious attempt that is made to achieve their agenda results illegally through a claim of Executive power is perhaps a tactical approach to force the issue . The Senate - at least until the Democratic Majority is no longer a fact- will not go along. Consequently, there must also be strong ongoing efforts undertaken to force the Supreme Court to deal with the actions that raise Constitutional issues even while seeking Impeachment. It is unfortunate that the Republican party , as yet , does not seem willing to undertake a strong defense of the Constitution! Perhaps a 2014 election of a significant number Constitutional Conservative Republicans that result in majorities in both Houses of Congress can change the mindset and begin a serious opposition effort to end Obama's agenda drive to "TRANSFORM AMERICA" and in the process diminish the Constitutional protections Citizens have enjoyed in this great country.

Obama lies and lies and lies some more. It is astounding to recognize the unwillingness of the main stream media to acknowledge this obvious tactic of lies and instead serve as the propaganda arm of the radical leftist Obama administration's agenda.

Obama's talent begins and ends with hiding the truth. He either prevents information from getting to the American people or he lies blatantly to misinform them. The main stream media repeat his lies and ignore his secrets and the reasons for them to support his radical agenda to "TRANSFORM AMERICA". Do we ever hear him or any of the radicals advancing his objective describe their end state! Why not? I'm sure if even those who are on the receiving end of Governments excessive spending would see the future disastrous results they are intending to impose by government mandated control over our lives. If we don't oust the radical progressives from office in 2014 and 2016 we will have given them the reins and permission to do us in!.
