Same story line came from the Nixon White House. We are too busy doing the peoples work to be bothered with all this stuff. Next will we hear "I am not a crook?"

This problem is really the fault of business owners who don’t keep up with the times. You people should know better than give your businesses names that include seditious terms like “patriot” or “freedom” or “tea party.” Stick with more Obama-friendly terms like “green” and “diversity” and “economic justice” and those IRS approvals will sail through. And a check made out to the DNC can only help.

A president who admits he doesn't have a clue (a la Sgt. Schultz, "I know nussink"), whose whereabouts during the Benghazi attack are unknown. God bless America.

Funny:

Swamped in controversies, President Obama and his slow-footed team are essentially telling the American public, “We’re not crooked. We’re just incompetent.”

The IRS targeting conservatives, the Justice Department snooping at The Associated Press, the State Department injecting politics into Benghazi, the military covering up sexual assaults, and the Department of Veterans Affairs leaving heroes in health care limbo – each of these so-called scandals share two traits.

First, there is some element of “spin," the cynical art of telling just enough of the truth to avoid political embarrassment. Obfuscation and demagogy, the dirty tools of political quackery that Obama pledged to purge from Washington, enjoy top-shelf status at his White House.

Second, there is almost comical bungling. While denying involvement in high crimes and misdemeanors, the Obama administration appears to be pleading guilty to lesser crimes of bureaucratic incompetence.

Is any of this starting to sound familiar?

"Definition of TYRANNY 1: oppressive power <every form of tyranny over the mind of man — Thomas Jefferson>; especially : oppressive power exerted by government <the tyranny of a police state> 2a : a government in which absolute power is vested in a single ruler; especially : one characteristic of an ancient Greek city-state b : the office, authority, and administration of a tyrant"

If he is not aware of all these things that have happened, he is too incompetent to be President.

If he IS aware and cannot stop them, he is too weak to be President.

If he IS aware and CAN stop them, but doesn't, he is too dishonest to be President.

In short, I have a wonderful dream that involves one Barry Hussein Soetero Obama giving the big double peace sign just before he boards Marine One for his final flight back to the Chicago projects.
