Pretty sure every president has said the same thing.

All he said in the speech was the government is not some evil entity, it's the people. If you don't like what's happening, you can participate and change it. And that you should.

Except every time there has been an instance of a problem going on in his administration, Obama has known nothing about it ahead of time. Is he so incompetent that he knows nothing of what's going on in his organization? I know he plays a lot of golf and takes a lot of vacations, but we're told he's kept apprised of what's going on while he's doing those things. What does he actually know about what's going on with his underlings?

that's about as sugar coated as it gets. Obama said straight up to ignore speech warning against government tyranny
Reagan said the complete opposite

Now Eric Holder doesnt know shit. He is incompetent as all hell with his "I don't know" or "I haven't been briefed on that". Freaking guy had testimony for like 4 hours and gave nothing but "I don't know what the f*ck happens in my department". Sounds like the same script he gave on the Fast and Furious briefings. Now he should get fired. Sounds like a broken record.

That's total bullshit. Republican presidents always take more vacations than Democratic ones. It is known.

Furthermore, all of these "problems" are made-up lies spread around by people who hate Obama just because. That's why ya'll keep getting called racists. Because you make-up stuff to blame Obama for.

Yeah, that's like, his mantra. He's always saying over and over "ignore the tyranny you guise." Don't be a paranoid conspiracy guy too.

Don't worry, this had nothing to do with politics. :roll:

A group founded by an Obama family member was breaking the law, yet they received fast-track AND retroactive approval for their group without any extra scrutiny: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/irs-stalled-conservative-groups-but-gave-speedy-approval-to-obama-foundation/2013/05/16/90c53e8a-be57-11e2-89c9-3be8095fe767_story.html

Some useful information about politics and the IRS:


James Bovard: A Brief History of IRS Political Targeting (5-10 min read)
show


http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... 30836.html

(No, he's not blaming Obama but is looking forward to the investigation. He's presenting a fascinating history of the IRS and instances where politicians used the IRS to target other politicians, political groups, and individuals.

It's appearing less and less likely that this is the case, you do realize...right?

I suppose a Bachmann supporter like yourself wouldn't consider her or her non-Tea Party motives embarrassing. I wouldn't expect you to. It's not at all surprising you believe it's a good thing that she is involved with the Tea Party, because it feeds your own embarrassing motives.

Is this like the "Romney is a guaranteed win" and "traditional marriage will win out" arguments? You've got quite a consistent track record with your predictions, but I'm not real sure you should be so proud of that particular consistency.
