"With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball. President Obama, Wednesday
Question: How many Americans have to be murdered in an al-Qaeda attack on a U.S. consulate before it stops being a phony scandal?
Answer: If Barack Obama is president, more than four.
Writers across the spectrum from the liberal New York Times to the conservative Wall Street Journal have beaten up on President Obamas latest dreadful, cliche-ridden (James Taranto, wsj.com) speech on economic policy, the second-longest speech of his presidency.
How can a man talk for more than an hour on a single topic, as Obama did on Wednesday, and say absolutely nothing new? As columnist Charles Krauthammer of the Washington Post explained, Its because the president has nothing to say about the economy.
Liberals complain that all conservatives ever say is Cut taxes and cut spending! Perhaps theyre right, but thats two more ideas than Barack Obama has offered during his entire presidency. **snip**
Phony? Whats phony about the fact that the IRS targeted citizens based on their ideology? That the discussion of this targeting went all the way up to the presidents hand-picked IRS chief counsel William Wilkins? That Wilkins met with Obama in April 2012 just two days before new guidance on how to handle Tea Party applications was sent from Washington to IRS operatives?

What's phony? An entire party of perverts, plunderers, and wannabe potentates.
Wake up America, this is not a nightmare, you're living it......
I don’t get it.
I thought all of our economic woes were behind us, everything was coming up rainbows and skittles, and only racists said differently.
America’s biggest phony is Obama.
“How can a man talk for more than an hour on a single topic, as Obama did on Wednesday, and say absolutely nothing new?”
cue up either Hitler at Nuremburg or any of Fidel’s earlier speeches.
This is a presidency in it’s death throes. He knows it. The speech had nothing to do with the economy and was meant for a distraction more than anything.
Too bad there isn’t an oppositon party. We could really pound the nails in the coffin of the Obama presidency if we had one
We can wish.
Too bad there isnt an oppositon party. We could really pound the nails in the coffin of the Obama presidency if we had one
Too busy trying to shine the shoes of the totalitarians in the other party......
There is nothing phony about dead diplomats, spying on citizens, and misusing the IRS for political purposes. Not that it’s surprising, but it still says a lot about Obama that he thinks it is.
The White House has said the scandals are phony.
The media has their marching orders and will report this as fact.
The public, too stupid and uninterested to know better will believe it all.
Republicans, unwilling to risk the wrath of the media, will shrink from the task for pushing for full disclosure. As Mark Levin noted, some Republicans, (Boehner, Cantor), have likely already cut deals.
It is time for a third party.
As long as the operative word about Washington is “insanity” there will be no improvement in the economy because no one knows what to plan on next.

Guess who Steven A. Cohen supported in the 2012 election?
Cohen and his wife Alexandra are major political donors, contributing more than $272,000 to federal candidates and political committees since 2009, according to campaign finance records.
During the 2012 campaign, Cohen hosted a fundraiser at his Greenwich, Conn., home for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, according to a report in the Connecticut Post, and he and wife each gave $30,800 to the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee.
