I'm beginning to wonder how Clint Eastwood knew bho was an empty chair - Jay carney says bho wasn't made aware of the IRS Audit plot, nor was bho aware of the AP records search, he apparently wasn't aware of or around when Benghazi was happening - who the hell is sitting in the potus chair? Does the potus surround himself with complete idiots?

more obmam aides knew of the IRS audits but none thot to tell the potus

-

WASHINGTON (AP) — White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and other senior advisers knew in late April that an impending report was likely to say the IRS had inappropriately targeted conservative groups, President Barack Obama's spokesman disclosed Monday, expanding the circle of top officials who knew of the audit beyond those named earlier.

But McDonough and the other advisers did not tell Obama, leaving him to learn about the politically perilous results of the internal investigation from news reports more than two weeks later, officials said.

The Treasury Department also told the White House twice in the weeks leading up to the IRS disclosure that the tax agency planned to make the targeting public, a Treasury official said.

The apparent decision to keep the president in the dark about the matter underscores the White House's cautious legal approach to controversies and reflects a desire by top advisers to distance Obama from troubles threatening his administration.

Obama spokesman Jay Carney defended keeping the president out of the loop on the Internal Revenue Service audit, saying Obama was comfortable with the fact that "some matters are not appropriate to convey to him, and this is one of them."
-

the former IRS Director who was in charge of TE status apps, is now going to be in charge of obmamcare, uffda, she needs to be fired.

-

a career civil servant named Sarah Hall Ingram is the director of the IRS's Affordable Care Act Office, in effect the chief enforcer of Obamacare. Aside from the fact that such an office exists, this should fill everyone with foreboding.

Ingram was the commissioner of the IRS office in charge of tax exempt organizations 2009 and 2012 during the time that the tax agency was targeting tea party and other conservative groups and making them run through bureaucratic hoops that did not apply to other groups to get tax exempt status. What could possibly go wrong?

Ingram seems to have embraced the concept of an activist role for the IRS as to which organizations gets to have tax exempt status and which do not, as well as which applications gets extra scrutiny and which do not. Under her watch, tea party and conservative groups were asked a host of intrusive and impossible to answer questions, apparently as a means to deny them tax exempt status. Other, more liberal groups, were not subjected to such scrutiny.

Under the Affordable Care Act, the IRS will be in charge of determining whether people have adequate insurance, whether or not they get a subsidy for health insurance, and rather they will pay a penalty for not having what the IRS defines as adequate insurance. Ingram will, having been in charge of the office that harassed conservative groups, is now in charge of enforcing health care.

The timing is right for POTUS to use his bully pulpit to remind fathers how important it is for them to be there for their kids to love and guide them. He did a good job with his past Father's Day message. But, once a year isn't enough. How about an on going initiative of some kind?

In a dramatic departure from existing White House procedures, President Obama requested today that his staff start cc’ing him on stuff.

“Look, I know a lot of you think I’m really busy and you don’t want to bother me,” the President reportedly told his staff in an Oval Office meeting. “But cc me anyway. It’s good for me to keep up on what’s going on around here.”

If Obama is an empty chair, then he won because he ran against empty heads. Americans read the GOP platform in the last national election and nearly gagged. Most realized that those Republicans who thought they stood tall in their Platform shoes really had no sole...

this from another thread about how bho is or has doubled the S&P 500:

-

EZ - good points, but if you click on the rest of the story on that link of the Huff Post, you'll also find this:

-

9 ways Americans haven't recovered from the S&P doubling under Obama:

1. Unemployment
When the economy was roaring in 2007, the U.S. unemployment rate was 5 percent. In January 2013 the unemployment rate was 7.9 percent.

2. Income And Wages
The U.S. median income fell to $50,054 in 2011, which is the most recent full year in which that data is available. That's down 8.1 percent since 2007. Wages also fell to a record-low 43.5 percent of the economy in 2012, according to the New York Times. Meanwhile, corporate profits are still booming.

3. Number Of People On Food Stamps
The number of Americans on food stamps surged to a record in 46 million in June 2012. That's compared to 26.5 million in 2007.

4. Uninsured Americans
More than 16 percent of Americans -- or 48.6 million people -- were uninsured in 2011, according to Kaiser Health News. This number is higher than what it was in 2007, when the share of uninsured Americans was 15.3 percent.

5. Student Loan Debt
The average student loan debt for a class of 2011 graduate was about $26,500, according to the Project on Student Debt data cited by the New York Times. Since 2007, when the average student debt was $23,349, student loan debt has increased for almost every demographic and the size of that debt has gone up as well, according to Pew.

6. Homelessness
In 2011, 644,067 Americans experienced homelessness on any given night, according to data from the National Alliance to End Homelessness cited by NBC News. Though that number is actually down 13 percent from 2007, the decrease is largely attributed to a boost in the number of programs to help keep the homeless off the streets.

7. Children In Poverty
More than 16 million children -- or about 20 percent of American children -- were in poverty in 2011, according to the Census Bureau. That's up from nearly 18 percent of American children in 2007.

8. Homeownership
We're on our way to becoming a renter nation. The homeownership rate in the 12 months leading up to May 2012 was 65.4 percent, according to Census Bureau data cited by CNNMoney. That's the lowest rate in 15 years. In the last quarter of 2007, the homeownership rate was 67.8 percent.

9. Foreclosures
There were 2.7 million foreclosures in 2011. That's up from 2.2 million foreclosures in 2007.

---------------------------------------------

The HUFF Post goes on to say:
Though Obama has reaped huge gains for Corporate America, his economy hasn’t been as great for us normals. We’re still in the throws of the slowest job-market recovery since World War II, with nearly 12 million Americans unemployed. In addition, wages have largely stagnated and millions of homeowners are still suffering from the housing crash, burdened by owing more money on their homes than they’re worth.
There is also a 10 reason that I'm surprised the Huff Post didn't list:

10. Barack Obama’s First Term – $5.806 trillion increase

--------------------------------------------------------

To summarize, the National Debt increased by huge amounts under each of these presidents. However, the largest increase under any President, whether for one or two terms, occurred during Barack Obama’s first term, which saw an increase of $5.806 trillion to the National Debt.

As of the end of President Obama’s first term, the National Debt stands at $16.433 trillion dollars. Current Obama administration projections indicate that the National Debt will increase to over $20 trillion by the end of his second term.

It is clear that the National Debt has been growing uncontrollably in recent years, regardless of which political party has been in power. To reverse this trend, we need to hold our elected officials accountable and demand that they balance the budget and reduce the National Debt.

In all fairness, any particular POTUS cannot claim or say that his administration was responsible for this or that stat. It's obvious that the workings of "pork-barrell congrssional spending on pet projects" has much to do with the lack of fiscal dilligence. Much of, if not most of the overspending has to do with congress who go to Washington and then do not work for the people - but rather for political interests (that many times benefit them over the people they represent).

Congress should have to abide by and live with all the laws, economic choices and bills that they pass. They should not become or go into politics for a lifelong political job. The 2 senators from my home state don't have a clue as to what health care costs, social security benefits, take home pay, everyday living expenses - are for many or most of my neighbors. They claim they do, they claim they visit with their voters - but they have never lived the life. It's pretty easy to discuss and talk about war in VietNam, but unless you were there - you seriously can't say that you know. Unless you can't afford to get treatment for Cancer (unlike most all political congress persons) they cannot really fathom what my neighbor who just lost her husband has gone thru and now faces the fact that she'll likely have to sell her house to pay the medical debt. She's too proud to go get food stamps - unlike a young 23 year old girl in a town 35 miles from here (I know her parents who confide in me) who has 3 kids by 3 different men and lives on govt subsidized housing, food stamps and mooches off her parents and borrows from her friends and smokes cigs and drinks to try to forget her problems.

The S&P and the DJIA has not really improved "normal" individual's lives, and if it has, it's not showing according to the 10 points listed above - from the Huff Post article.

Just my take, perhaps it's so much better where the rest of you live. Good for y'all.

"It's not about just winning or losing, as apparently it is with liberals."

Oh, I get it, so Mitch McConnell saying "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president" was only supposed to apply to the next "few days" after the Mid-term elections (which if I recall the GOP took many seats from the Dems, so it must have been based out of elation for having 'won the football game')?

Somebody better tell that to the rest of the GOP, they took it literally... 37 times to repeal Obamacare, anybody? How about we waste our time on a 38th?

jk: "It's not sour grapes to be despondent while watching a once great nation decay so rapidly! "


We are headed for national bankrupcy. It's not a matter of if, it's just a matter of when. Only after things have collapsed and the welfare state disintigrates, will we be able to pick up the pieces and start over. Unfortunately the takers are never going to quit voting for more freebies and they have sufficient numbers now to swing an election, which has been the democrats goal for decades; therefore it's going to take an economic catastrophe of sufficient magnitude to physically prevent government from handing out more freebies to set the stage for a return to saner economic policies.

Passer said: "the Republicans are suffering from nearly a fatal case of sour grapes by losing twice to Obama"

Unlike the liberal mindset, when the conservative's champion loses, it's not treated like a football game where a loss deflates the pride one has with their team. It's not about just winning or losing, as apparently it is with liberals. When a football game ends the impact pretty much is over, leaving only elation or depression for a few days. A presidential race has impact for the next several years, however.

The state of mind that conservatives were in right after both elections reflected the sadness of knowing what huge negative impact a liberal jackass like Obozo would have on the country and on their personal well-being. That ominous cloud has now burst and we've now been deluged by the many failures that the Obozo administration is responsible for.

There have been WAY too many Obozo failures for anyone in their right mind to think anything but the wrong choice was made in both elections. It's not sour grapes to be despondent while watching a once great nation decay so rapidly!

"...and you dems see it but cann't swallow your pride to admit it"

The problem is that the Republicans are suffering from nearly a fatal case of sour grapes by losing twice to Obama, that everything that comes out of their mouths should have come out of their other end in full long ago. The American people believe the GOP much less than they do Obama. They've been crying Wolf (or Fox) so long they have lost most of their credibility and their motives are as suspect as would be GOP Leader Limbaugh complaining that he was refused a tax deduction for a prescription he just happened to have for Oxycontin.

Apparently Obama is not happy when he is informed of what's going on in his governemnt. He'd rather shoot hoops, play golf, campaign, and say "I know nothing!" if asked about inconvenient truths going on in his government.

"Obozo is without a doubt the mastermind behind these scandals, and they're falling apart at the seams like they should under such an incompetent "mastermind"."

Without a doubt <rolls eyes>...

"But Mr. and Ms. Obama Worshipper, don’t tell us anymore how smart he is. You can’t have it both ways."

I agree - he made plenty of mistakes in his first term like pushing through Obamacare and Cap&Trade rather than moving quickly on fixing the economy. He was also naive thinking that he could come in and have the GOP sing 'Kumbaya' with the Democrats; that rift has been growing since the Gingrich days - maybe even longer.

Just because I don't buy into the GOP hype about all of these conspiracies doens't mean I 'worship' Obama. This is a common mistake made by the Right these days...

This isn't every one. Its just the one you are attempting to ridicule to defend your beloved POTUS.
Please continue.
Its so illuminating and entertaining to watch all of you Obama lovers destroy yourselves defending him.
Since you defend the corruption and lies you must therefore be corrupt and a liar yourself.
Isn't that what all of you left wingers used to tell us back in the Bush era?

The story is true, and despite your rant, you know it and can't refute that fact. Therefore you are trying to change the subject, misdirect, and basically do everything to can to make it look like the story isn't true without actually saying so, because if you say so you know we will call you on it as this one is a black and white fact, and make you look more foolish than what you are doing now.

You aren't dealing with your typical low information democrat voter here, so your attempts at misdirection are quite futile.

"You don't point out anything inaccurate about the story. Nothing to refute it. You simply think you can discredit it because of the name of the website."

It was a blog, a petty opinion piece from a partisan Republican mouthpiece. Those who get their "news" from Fox, have long since forgotten the difference between "fact" and "opinion". It calls itself "Hot Air" because that's what it is. There is no "fact checking" it is all made up opinion and the author can say whatever they want or make up because they have warned you that it is at best, just a bunch of opinion and "Hot Air". Even Fox must make believe occasionally that what they report is true and not made up. Reactionaries don't know the difference. If it sounds good and supports the beliefs they have from living in the Reactionary Bubble, then, that's all they need.

The author NEVER claimed that what they write is "true", just their opinion and I don't have the time to refute every fantasy in every Reactionary blog. If they made a claim that what they wrote was TRUE, then that would be different. It is enough that all their lambs believe it.

And at every national election they will continue to be slaughtered!

He doesn't point out any inaccuracies because he can't. What the story said was true. All he's left with is calling the site that posted the true story names. How sad, when our friends on the left are reduced to such schoolyard behavior, because that's all they have left in the light of the damning facts that are coming out every day regarding all these scandals. I read somewhere just this morning that there are more people from the state department who will be coming forward in the next week or so that will blow the Benghazi scandal wide open. They are apparently getting lawyers first for fear of retaliation, as they are career state department employees.

Certainly try to look less desperate while you witness your beloved Obozo administration crumbling like a sand castle getting pummeled by the incoming tide!

Although the Eastwood skit was quite amusing, "Empty Head" is much more suited to Obozo than is "Empty Chair". Obozo is without a doubt the mastermind behind these scandals, and they're falling apart at the seams like they should under such an incompetent "mastermind".

And you've got your own conundrum to deal with, haven't you?

As said nicely in this article, "He didn’t know. He didn’t know. He didn’t know. He didn’t know. He’s the smartest man in the world, and he didn’t know...Brilliant guy, or so they say. Yet when it comes time to own up the responsibilities of the Presidency, he’s strangely absent… or absentminded. In a word, he’s obtuse....we’ll just call him Obtuse Obama. That way, he’s not responsible for his failures. But Mr. and Ms. Obama Worshipper, don’t tell us anymore how smart he is. You can’t have it both ways."

And what is the "source" of this "news" that you were too embarrassed to name?

Drum roll please....

"HOT AIR"

Really?


No, that's just not my opinion, but the ACTUAL name of the "source".

I believe that the Fox News Channel gets a good deal of their stories from this "source", also.

And Rush Limbaugh has made millions off of "hot air" also. I wonder if he pays them a commission? No, he probably gave the Palm Beach County prosecutor a story from Hot Air when he Copped A Plea to his Doctor Shopping Indictment...

The Left has their New York Times.

Not be be "Trumped" but the Right now has their Hot Air.

Whoosh...

When Obama walks into the room, instead of playing Hail to the Chief, they should play the theme to Hogan's Heros and salute Sgt. Schultz.

Empty chair? You're not kidding.. Here now, how many times has the fool Obama gone back to the excuse "I didn't know about it"? Too many, IMHO. It would seem to me that an empty chair knows as much as the fool my fellow citizens elected as President. (I sure as "Shineola" didn't vote for him, either time).

"Quoting the OxyMoron is all the proof one needs to realize that Jindal's statement was Gospel."

Great comment! Couldn't agree more... I'd like to hear what else Jindal has to say. Seems to be one of the few in his party to 'get it'.

"Either way if he is (A) the mastermind behind these plots or (B) unaware of what is going on within his Administration, would you want him to be the President of our country?"

The fact that his detractors can't make up their minds on this and are on opposing sides of the spectrum tells me all I need to know.

Passer can't refute the message, so he is left with attacking the messenger.

Hey passer - want to try any more insults to stir things up?

Someday someone will pass a comment worth reading I hope.

article on: What if obama really doesn't know what's going on in his govt

-

“ … the hot new line from Obama apologists: he’s so incredibly inept that he can’t be held responsible for anything his Administration does. He golfs, he raises money, he takes a lot of vacations… there’s not much time left over for management. He learns about the crazy misadventures of his subordinates by watching TV news, like the rest of us.”

Rush "the OxyMoron" Limbaugh says,

"OBAMA IS TOO BIG TO KNOW"

Rush is an addict with a

BIRDBRAIN ALWAYS EATING CROW!

Now Rush may be the defacto leader of the Republican Party but the misogynist was not a little bit responsible for the GOP presidential loss in the last election and to continue to quote him gives credence to Bobby Jindal's statement that the Republican Party was "the Stupid Party".

Quoting the OxyMoron is all the proof one needs to realize that Jindal's statement was Gospel.

just what we need, a president, that is nothing but a bystander, in the oval office

I find it more then a little hard to believe, that obama didn't know what was going on with bengahzi, the IRS, and the AP.

What get's me, is how the obama backers refuse to open their eyes and see what's going on. they claim, to love our country, while all of the time giving obama and friends a free pass on everything they do, that in no way is good for us.
