Stonewalling continues

  • Follow Letters

The thorn behind the Benghazi scandal is that Republicans are not happy President Obama got elected partly based on the lie that al-Qaida was defeated and the tides of war were receding – then tried to cover up the truth regarding the attack where four Americans died knowing it would have exposed just the opposite.

Further, the right has been stonewalled at every turn trying to uncover the truth, while the administration just wants it to go away. The harder the administration stonewalls, the harder the right pushes for the truth. The right knows the only reason for a cover up is because there is damaging material the administration doesn’t want exposed.

The left thinks they can stonewall and the mainstream media will ignore longer than the right can investigate. If there was nothing to hide, they would have been totally transparent, to use the president’s word criticizing the previous administration, from the very beginning.

The same goes for the IRS, the Department of Justice, Fast and Furious and the VA scandals, as well as the Affordable Care Act. The right is upset because, in each, the president or his administration has lied to Congress or directly to the American people. The president went on Fox News and told Bill O’Reilly that there’s not a smidgen of evidence of corruption at the IRS. Really? Because even naïve letter writers know the investigation has only barely begun. Why would former IRS official Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment if not for fear of the truth?

Stonewalling only frustrates and increases the right’s resolve. What they really want to know, and everyone else should want to know, is: How much will the left lie to get elected and pass laws, and, how can we trust anything said at this point?

My father used to say a man is only as good as his word. The man here represents the executive office and the country.

Mr. Chandler is right on the mark with his comments....

Mr. Chandler is right on the mark with his comments. Obama is the most dogged ideologue we have ever had in the White House. He is so focused on accomplishing his agenda of "fundamentally transforming America" that he is not hesitant to completely ignore laws and Congress.

He sees himself as a savior to the US and the world to world to bring down the rich and powerful to levels of equality because their gains of wealth and power were ill gained as a result of stealing from the less fortunate.

He does not have the best interest of America in his agenda. He is pursuing the road laid out from his mentors beginning with his communist mother, followed by his grandparents, Frank Marshall Davis, Saul Alinsky, Jerimiah Wright, and every other leftist/ Marxist he ever read or came in contact with. He is evil personified.

Each Obama scandal has led us

Each Obama scandal has led us to Crisis Overload that has created chaos in the nation's capital. They are to numerous to even review at this point.

He has admitted breaking the law and ignored the Constitution so why do we need anymore committees to investigate.

Start the impeachment process now!

As far as two failings of Obama's presidency...

As far as two failings of Obama's presidency, Ben Ghanzi and Iraq are concerned:

The more we learn about Ben Ghanzi the worse it becomes as a coverup. Last night the pilot of the C-17 who extracted the casualties and dead from the area said he was never interviewed by the Review Board led by Admiral (Ret) Mullen.

By the way, Ambassador Stephens did not die of smoke inhalation as the administration says. He was sodomized and his genitals were cut off.

Most of you know the Iraqi Al Queada have now taken over Musal, Tikirt, and are headed toward Baghdad. Why is this happening after we spent so much treasure and lives in bring this country to a position where it could have been a freedom loving country? It happened because Obama failed to reach a Status Of Forces Agreement (SOFA) with Iraq by not even discussing it with the government of Iraq.

Obama abandoned Iraq because it did not fit into his Muslim loving agenda. As I write this the marines and the people of the embassy in Iraq are shredding and burning documents in the largest American Embassy in the world. This lies at Obama's feet and no one else's. The media will once again gloss over this failure as we should have never been there in the first place.

OBAMA
Unpublished

When he was running for office he repeatedly said he'd have the most transparent administration ever. We now see that was just another one of his many lies.

"Obama loves the little children, all the children of the world"

"Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight."

What's happening to their savior?? THEIR savior is a traitor, that's what!!

I'm sure the people of Iraq would really like to thank the "savior" for withdrawing from Iraq!! Or at least Al Qaeda would like to thank him for giving them an ENTIRE COUNTRY for a training fortress!!

All those American lives lost......and now for what? Radicals have taken the Country back!! Many military experts WARNED this idiot, that this would happen. But Obama and his mininions despise the military and wouldn't listen!! Now, we and especially Iraqi people are paying the price for this idiots decisions!!

That's why Obama and his minions celebrate Bergdahl and having him back; because he is a traitor, just like them!! He wouldn't fight for America and they feel the same way!!

Great time to reduce our military to pre-WWII levels, right Mr. president? Just like the build up to the "Third Reich" where the people were WARNED, over and over that bad things were coming. This Country has been warned of Obama's disasterous policies AND intentions!! But they wouldn't listen, just like the Germans wouldn't listen!! They continued allowing Hitler to move forward with his plans, and we continue to allow Obama to move "Forward"!! Just like his campaign slogan!!

He is held accountable for NOTHING!! To the left, every single scandal he is accused of, is a right wing conspiracy; no matter how blatant it is!! Why? Because they must lie and cover up everything they do, because the time isn't right, just yet!! But that time is coming and bad things are coming!! There are only two things that will stop it; the return of the TRUE Savior, or war!! I'm certainly hoping for the FIRST!!

Because my Savior, is NOT incompetent, like theirs!!

We have lost Iraq. We will

We have lost Iraq. We will lose Afghanistan. All from the same disease that caused the loss of Vietnam. It's a semi-sexual dysfunction, mainly found in liberals, caused by no spine and small gonads called Premature Evacuation. They always vote to go....but don't have the staying power to finish the job.

The Democrat mantra...

Why work at governing when smearing your opponents works so well?

Myfather, Obama was elected

Myfather, Obama was elected upon the premise that he would bring troops home.

So, all of you complain that he doesn't do what he says he is going to do, but then when he does what he says he is going to do, you don't like that either.

People, wake up. We are now 2 generations into a volunteer military and close to 3 generations. It will never, ever go back to the way it was unless we start drafting again.

It used to be that the overwhelming number of families had a veteran, and usually more than one.

Now, the overwhelming number of families in the US do not have a living veteran in their family. And that's important, and it's a very strong reason why so many people have become Democratic.

It has nothing to do with being liberal or being nonliberal, it's a combination of no military history and experience in a family and the still-raw wound of Vietnam.

And a whole lot of you don't even want to consider that. But it's true, and it has had a profound effect on our nation.

The idea of being a hawk instead of a dove is becoming more and more the minority viewpoint. So it's not going to happen.

And the Democrats realize this, and they have gotten very good at winning elections, and the Republicans had better wake up and smell the coffee.

Premise

Corgimom posited:

Myfather, Obama was elected upon the premise that he would bring troops home.

I don't think so. Obama was elected upon the premise that 2008 was at last the time to elect a president with demonstrably African heritage.

We have now smelled the coffee, and it is spoiled.
