The deficit is shrinking much faster than anyone predicted.  Does that suit you, subby?

They are responsible for implementing the Republican plan for healthcare reform.

I don't know, having the worst people in America being in a perpetual terrified froth-rage for the last five yrs has been good for some lulz

Sliding Carp: The deficit is shrinking much faster than anyone predicted.  Does that suit you, subby?


Is that really to the credit of the Democrats or mindless GOP obstructionism, though?

Why won't he just resign!? You've accused him of so many things!

And what is responsible for mindless GOP obstructionism?

Democrats being power.

QED.

No politician is EVER responsible when BAD things happen. They are, however, responsible for anything GOOD that happens. Just ask 'em...
 
2013-05-15 02:52:00 PM  
It's responsible for making the GOP whinier and derpier than it's ever been.

There are so many allegations, he should have been impeached by now. WTF is this guy's problem?

He'd have a lot more control over the Justice Department and the IRS if it weren't for your boy Nixon, subby.

Stop talking about Queen Pelosi like that. Her mascara ran and she can't help having huge floppy feet.
 
2013-05-15 03:23:00 PM  
The GOP doesn't want to have to start impeachment proceedings...
 
2013-05-15 03:32:40 PM  
Repeal the farking Patriot Act or shut the fark up.

Or both, preferably.

I asked that about the Bush administration, apparently the answer was no.  Except for keeping us safe.  After that little 9/11 thing I mean.

Reverse but Bush, but will he stick the landing?

Here's the thing that kills me: the President not really being down with the day-to-day operations of the DOJ and IRS is ideal. That's the way it should be. Granted, he should have strong leadership in place there in order to guide things in a responsible, legal manner, but the president should not be involved in operations.
 
2013-05-15 04:12:23 PM  

bradkanus: why would the Obama administration take credit for everything GWB did?


That would be silly.  No way Obama takes credit for blundering us into a war in Iraq, or sinking the economy, for example.

Butthurt.

Massive amounts of butthurt.

Like, being sodomized by Lexington Steele, Ron Jeremy, and John Holmes in a massive, anal-rending triple penetration level butthurt.
 
2013-05-15 04:19:01 PM  
Obama is responsible for the bucket of sand in the GOP's vagina.
 
2013-05-15 04:19:29 PM  
Are you kidding, submitter?  He just released this to the press:

"Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!"

FlashHarry: unemployment is down, housing is coming back.


It couldn't get worse!!!!  Of course it went down.  You throw a rock in the air, it has to come down sometime.  I don't get credit for the down part.  Just the throwing it in the air part.  Damn you 0bama.

i know - the idea that he would be intimately involved in the day-to-day operations of the cincinnati field office of the IRS is ludicrous.

I LOVED that scene.  Especially when he dropped Carrie Fisher in the mud at the end.  Just like Obama will do to us, after he kisses us right on the lips.  He'll drop us in the mud.  And it won't be a nice kiss either, it will be all beer and bratwurst and a tongue choking your tonsils.  And you can bet he'll be smart enough to take our M-16s first.

I'm still giving him the benefit of a doubt on the IRS thing.  I think that's institutional mismanagement, not an Obama directive.  But, I don't believe for a second he didn't know what was going on with the DoJ and the AP.  That was an investigation into a pretty serious security leak, and he has been cracking down on those, and this involved the Associated Press, one of the largest and well-known media outlets in the country.
 
2013-05-15 04:47:00 PM  
How can the head of the Justice Department recuse himself of things? Who then is in charge, a Deputy?

I think this kind of action would have given even Nixon pause.  I find it scandalous that this isn't the only scandal we really need to look into.  Because if what I know so far is true, this is fairly outrageous.

vernonFL: How can the head of the Justice Department recuse himself of things? Who then is in charge, a Deputy?


He recused himself because he was questioned by the FBI. He felt it was inappropriate for himself to be part of an investigation that he was previously an object of. It was then taken over by the Deputy Attorney General.

I believe that the President is so scrupulous and respects the protocols so much, that he is not involved in investigations by the Department of Justice whatsoever.

He got Boehner to admit he's more interested in firing people than creating jobs.

Oh please.  Yes, Nixon was accused of using the IRS illegally, but he had a farking laundry list of charges leveled against him in the articles of impeachment.  Nixon would have thought what the Obama DoJ and/or IRS is doing was cute or quaint.

True, we really shouldn't model health care reform based on plans from the Heritage Foundation huh? ;)

I appreciate the question subby.  Now please go ask someone else.
