Meanwhile in the real world, the Obama administration acts like the Soviet Russia I grew up with, and that’s not hyperbole. Sure there’s always been overreach and mistakes but the MSM was a watchdog and Americans quickly put the kibosh on it. The MSM have been asleep and so much has been put in place that I wonder how much Barack Obama really has ‘radically transformed” this country.
What else do they have at this point? First reliable racist huckster Al Sharpton, thinner and smoother than years ago, but largely unchanged in his views. SisterToldjah has the MSNBC video. http://sistertoldjah.com/archives/2013/05/15/race-hustler-al-sharpton-irs-scandal/
Reliable socialist racial hack and former head of the NAACP, Julian Bond calls the Tea Party “admittedly racist” and “American Taliban.” Electing Bond as its head was a very bad move for the NAACP, a step into their increasingly partisan and radical organization. I no longer support any of its function. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jeffrey-meyer/2013/05/14/naacp-s-bond-calls-tea-party-american-taliban-msnbc-s-roberts-barely-
Bond was on MSNBC, and of course Chris Matthews said some more racist hack stuff about Tea Party “white supremacy” folks but that’s just everyday ranting from Matthews so I didn’t bother linking.
Oh, they’ll get to the bottom of things and they “accept responsibility” but they can’t be held responsible because they had no idea what was going on, what went wrong or who did what. Well, except for Tea Partiers, Christians, conservatives, libertarians, and Republicans. They’re always at fault, always wrong, always trying to destroy this great
socialist nation. Fortunately for Obama/Hillary/Holder, the MSM agrees with those assessments.
So Obama/Hillary/Holder never get to the bottom of things and they’re never held responsible.
Unfortunately for Obama/Hillary/Holder, they bit the media hand that fed them, a bite too far for some MSM. Unfortunately for the MSM, they elected, reelected, and covered up for the venomous snake they knew Obama/Hillary/Holder and the rest of the Chicago Machine to be. As the old rock song says, you know what happens when you bring a venomous snake into your home, into your bosom.
Former top Obama advisor David Axelrod has the best excuse of all: Obama/Hillary/Holder simply can’t administer this big ole government that is the United States of America. For once Axelrod is speaking the absolute truth. Many of us knew in 2008 that Obama was too inexperienced, too ideological, too ignorant to handle the job of President of the United States.
Yeh, the government’s too big for Obama to
rule govern. Made a lot of sense for Obama/Hillary/Holder to make it a lot bigger, eh?
This excuse was one promoted by another failed president, Jimmy Carter. Yesterday we were at Obama/Nixon, today we’re at Obama/Carter once again. Only a lot more vindictive and a lot more of a thug, which Carter never was. http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/348346/scarborough-goes-axelrod-spinning-ap-tapping-%E2%80%98save-somebody-else-buy-that%E2%80%99
There’s an MSNBC video link at NRO above but I’m not posting the video because I don’t feed MSMBC. They need to starve out of existence, as does a lot of the Obama-fawning MSM.
Cartoon from the incomparable Michael Ramirez of Investors’ Business Daily.
I quit watching Jon Stewart because he is a clever liberal hack who can sometimes be funny but the ideology wears you out over time. This is pretty funny; he’s a little surprised at the political corruption from the Obama admin. Don’t get excited, he’ll keep voting Democrat.
After all, he was one of the media mocking the Tea Partiers the last couple of years for being conspiracy theorists and extremists.
Warning: there is graphic language here, some bleeped, some not.
First, a rebuttal of the liberal press suggesting that maybe, just maybe, there wasn’t anything ideological in the IRS delays in approving the tax-exempt status of conservative groups. Maybe there was a slowdown in the approval of liberal groups, too.
Well there certainly wasn’t any delay in approving the non-profit status of the charity of Barack Obama’s half-brother. Once requested by the Kenyan, it took 30 days to get approved. Contrast that with 2years and counting for some conservative groups.
Yes the charity is named the Barack H Obama Foundation.
[Updated] Neglected to mention that not only was the approval fast-tracked for the Obama family “charity” but it was made retroactive for 3 years, an unbelievably generous action by the IRS. And what is the focus of the Barack H Obama Foundation, which no one seems to know is named for the father or famous brother? The less-famous brother wants to use the now tax-exempt dollars of American donors to build a madrassa in Kenya.
Next, not only did the IRS target the applications of conservative groups requesting tax-exempt status, demanding outrageous information and slowing the approval time to a standstill, but the IRS then leaked confidential information about the groups to the liberal group ProPublica. Well that’s handy, isn’t it? Even handier, this information was leaked to ProPublica during the 2012 presidential election year.
You’ll be shocked to learn that the liberal ProPublica neglected to mention or question that the IRS gave them confidential information from conservative groups during the election last year.

Looks like the always-helpful EPA got in on the action by expediting grant requests from Obama-friendly donors and lefties, while squashing those of an opposite political persuasion. Say, it’s fun working in the Obama administration, isn’t it? You simply do anything you want to help keep boss Obama in power and reward his pals.
Conservative groups seeking information from the Environmental Protection Agency have been routinely hindered by fees normally waived for media and watchdog groups, while fees for more than 90 percent of requests from green groups were waived, according to requests reviewed by the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
CEI reviewed Freedom of Information Act requests sent between January 2012 and this spring from several environmental groups friendly to the EPA’s mission, and several conservative groups, to see how equally the agency applies its fee waiver policy for media and watchdog groups. Government agencies are supposed to waive fees for groups disseminating information for public benefit.
For 92 percent of requests from green groups, the EPA cooperated by waiving fees for the information. Those requests came from the Natural Resources Defense Council, EarthJustice, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, The Waterkeeper Alliance, Greenpeace, Southern Environmental Law Center and the Center for Biological Diversity
Well those are all Obama cronies, that’s for sure.
Since US taxpayers have subsidized the luxury auto Tesla to the tune of more than $460 Million, I’m guessing CEO Elon Musk, who worries a great deal about CO2, is an Obama friend. http://www.c3headlines.com/2012/04/electric-car-advantages-how-does-paying-40000-for-a-tesla-ev-replacement-battery-sound.html

MR. CARNEY: “This” I think refers to this investigation, so I cannot comment on that. What I can tell you is the President absolutely believes in the need for the press to be able to pursue unfettered investigative journalism. And you saw that in — prior to his arrival in this office, when he was a senator and cosponsored legislation that would enhance protections for the media, and the principles that are behind that effort are ones that he holds to this day.
Q So the balance he believed in ’08 he didn’t believe in once he was President?
Hey, it’s not easy being Baghdad Bob, er, Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney right now
