1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when. 2. Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one: ■The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission. ■The changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video ■The refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack 3. Watching the AP: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation. 4. Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails. 5. Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General ...
It has been about 10 days since legendary Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle was tragically gunned down in Texas, and the president of the United States has yet to address his death. President Barack Obama has not made a public statement regarding Kyle’s murder and his extraordinary service to his county, nor has the White House issued an official press release. Several Blaze readers have also suggested that the White House should have ordered flags be flown at half mast to honor Kyle. You may recall, Obama issued such orders to honor the late Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, the victims of Sandy Hook, and in honor of Arlen Specter, Neil Armstrong and Army Cpl. Frank W. Buckles, as well as others. While those proclamations were more than necessary, many would argue an American hero like Chris Kyle — the “American Sniper” — undoubtedly deserves the same respect. However, the most glaring oversight is still the fact that President Obama hasn’t so much as offered a public statement paying his respects to . ...
They keep saying, "He had both houses of congress for two years!" This timeline shows the facts. President Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009 with just 58 Senators to support his agenda. Two votes short of the 'supermajority' which was put in place a few years ago. He should have had 59, but Republicans contested Al Franken's election in Minnesota and he didn't get seated for seven months. The President's cause was helped in April when Pennsylvania's Republican Senator Arlen Specter switched parties. That gave the President 59 votes -- still a vote shy of the super majority. But one month later, Democratic Senator Byrd of West Virginia was hospitalized and was basically out of commission. So while the President's number on paper was 59 Senators -- he was really working with just 58 Senators. Then in July, Minnesota Senator Al Franken was finally sworn in, giving President Obama the magic 60 -- but only in theory, because Senator Byrd was still out. Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts was ill, as well ...
Remember Dwight Eisenhower, Nelson Rockefeller, Jacob Javits, Mark Hatfield, Olympia Snowe, Lincoln Chafee, Norm Coleman, Gordon Smith, Ted Stevens, Pete Domenici, Arlen Specter and Richard Lugar? They were the respected stalwarts of the GOP whether or not we agreed with them on any given issue. What happened to their legacy? How did the Republican Party morph into the cacophony of the voices of Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann, Darrel Issa. Peter King, Jan Brewer, Jim DeMint, Eric Cantor, Todd Akin, Joe Arpaio, Grover Norquist and Rush Limbaugh? Most savvy pundits agree that even Ronald Regan, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, George Romney and the first President Bush would not be welcomed candidates by current party criteria. The American public would be better served by a healthy two-party government working together for them. Barring an unforeseen calamity, President Obama is likely to be re-elected. Despite the demonizing rhetoric to the contrary, he is a moderate centrist in many ways simil ...
Former Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) writes in a new book that President Obama ditched him in the 2010 election after he helped Obama win the biggest legislative victory of his term by passing healthcare reform. Specter also claims that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not uphold his promise to grant him seniority accrued over 28 years of service in the Senate as a Republican.
