Get real people. The entirety of the US Government is NOT Obama and the corruption that's plagued this nation has been in the works for DECADES. I don't follow the stupid right-left paradigm, it's a joke. Two sides of the same coin, two cheeks on the same butt. But my God you Republicans need to hop off the band-wagon against Obama.
You don't even flinch when it comes to his drone strike carnage, but as soon as he's caught in another "scandal-gate" you all call foul and act is if this is absolutely shocking. Goes to show how many people don't give a **** about what the right thing is, all they care about is empowering their party and glorifying themselves.
You don't follow the "left/right paradigm", but are willing to only call out Republicans for not "flinching" regarding drone strikes? You don't see the failed logic here? Lets see..."left" side says "scandals" are political, while the "right" side....no... you should see this. And vice-versa...
My reply will be ignored, like always, because people don't want to hear the truth. Instead I'll be labelled an "Obama sympathizer" and people will continue to deflect when it comes to the full scope of what's happening in this once great nation.
Drop the melodrama "woes me, my reply will be ignored".
There is more to politics, including the corruption, than just one President. Shocker, I know. There is actually MORE that happens in geo-politics than what Barry says. I know, it's proposterous to think that Obama isn't aware of every little thing at every single second of every branch/department in the government, but I can ensure you that political corruption is spread far and wide in this country; not stemming from the palm of one man that nine years ago a very, very select few of you would even know's name.
Agreed and a much bigger discussion than presented here.edit on 29-5-2013 by ownbestenemy because: (no reason given)

I'm pretty sure anybody with operational brain cells knows that our government is corrupt to its core and run by greedy, psychopathic idiots, but this thread is pointing out one aspect of it - the Obama administration. He's sure not making any improvements! And yet, he promised so much.
If you would like to start a thread on the other problems in government, let me know and I will contribute.

Okay I'm listening, but do you honestly think he stepped into this mess without any knowledge of how bad it was..?
I agree that he has been up against Insurmountable odds, but why a second term?
While I would like to be able to say this is what the people have chosen as what's best for them, but did they really?
And I'd love to start my own threads on other aspects of corruption, but there are already so many examples and times when they've been caught doing dirty or in some cases sadistic things. All the while, you're constantly battling off people who just name call and fall to the 'conspiracy nut' strawman. I don't have the patience haha

Nixon was also clever and crafty and driven, Obama's lazy and intellectually unable to grasp the finer points of leadership and politics. He's not stupid, nor a genius, but an average mind with a huge ego who's been given everything he has and has earned nothing. He could be forced from office as easily as he was put in by those that run things and he knows it. I often wonder if some of these scandals aren't being engineered to get rid of him by impeachment now that his usefulnees is coming to an end. Would having him impeached serve any purpose.? If their goal is to divide and distract the country, yes. And it is their goal.
