For my liberal friends:
So, President Nixon had his cronies bug some meetings of his political opponents. He then covered it up. He was threatened with impeachment, took responsibility for the actions of his underlings, and resigned. I am fine with that.
If President Nixon had instead refused to send the military to rescue an embassy staff that was under attack from our sworn enemies, and the staff died, and his administration organized the sanitization of talking points to avoid blaming our sworn enemies, and then tried to cover it up, and got caught, I believe that again, he would be threatened with impeachment, would take responsibility for the actions of his underlings, and would resign. I would be fine with that too.
If President Nixon had also, at the same time, sent the IRS to AUDIT his political enemies, instead of just spying on them, and he had joked about it several years ago, and the IRS was forced to apologize, again, he would have resigned. Again, I would be fine with that.
So, for my liberal friends... Will Obama be man enough to resign for his crimes?
Will you be fine with that?
Or are you just a partisan hack?

Yep, that's right. Certain federal agencies are working hard (commendably, I might add) to reduce the impact of mandatory cuts caused by the Obama sequester on the taxpayers and citizens who need their services.
However, this directly contradicts the Obama agenda of trying to blame the Republicans for Obama's sequester, because for voters to punish the Republicans for Obama's sequester, there has to be enough suffering for the mainstream media to cover.
From the Washington Times:
So, for those of you Obama voters sitting at home, unemployed, trying to find evidence that Obama cares about you, just think about the skyrocketing gas prices, the fact that there are no jobs available, and don't forget the record high stock market!
Then reread the paragraph above. Obama wants to make sure that you FEEL the sequester. It needs to HURT.
That way, the press will blame the Republicans, and you'll believe it - and you'll be more likely to go to the polls in 2014 to solidify his power.

Today, the WSJ points out a fascinating conversation between a CNN reporter and our President:
Yellin: Mr. President, to your question, what could you do--first of all, couldn't you just have them down here and refuse to let them leave the room until you have a deal?
Obama: I mean, Jessica, I am not a dictator. I'm the President. So, ultimately, if Mitch McConnell or John Boehner say, we need to go to catch a plane, I can't have Secret Service block the doorway, right?Why isn't Ms. Yellin asking the President to compromise? Why isn't she urging him that any deal is better than inaction, even if he doesn't get what he wants? Why isn't he being encouraged to 'move to the center'?
Well, it's because 'compromise' and 'move to the center' is code for 'do what the liberals want'. Compromising with Republicans takes things in a direction that CNN finds totally unbearable. Hence, the idea just never seems to come up.

Thanks to NBC New York, we learn that Mayor Bloomberg thinks telecommuting is dumb. Wow. Let me make sure I understand the big picture here.
- Bloomberg taxes vehicles coming into the city, to reduce traffic, emissions, noise, and a lot of other things that are bad for people and nature.
- Bloomberg wants everyone who works for every New York company to come to the office.
- Bloomberg taxes vehicles coming into the city, to increase taxes. He does this under the auspice of reducing traffic, emissions, noise, and a lot of other things that are bad for people and nature.
- Bloomberg wants everyone who works for every New York company to come to the office, to maximize the taxes that are paid.

So, for the people who voted for Obama so that they could get free healthcare, I was wondering how you like your new government provided plan. Is it everything you'd hoped for? Is everything covered that you expect to be covered? Does your doctor like working with your new insurance? Is everything cheaper now?
If, on the other hand, you didn't get free healthcare, it might not be a mistake - you might be too rich to get it. If you don't have insurance, but you have to pay a big penalty next year, that's also probably not a mistake - you're just probably rich enough to pay for other people's health insurance even though you don't need any. If your boss raised your insurance premiums, it's not his fault - it's just that because he pays you such a huge amount, the government knows that you can pay for a lot of this yourself, and we might have leftover money for people who aren't as rich as you.
That's how it works! Congratulations on your new-found wealth. I bet that before today you didn't even realize how well-to-do you really were. Never take it for granted again.

I seem to remember that when gas prices rose during the Bush administration, the liberal media traced the cause to a series of secret meetings between Dick Cheney and oil company CEOs. So, what is the cause of the recent increase in gas prices under the Obama administration? Is the Obama administration allowing these secret meetings to continue? If so, where is the outrage? Maybe Joe Biden is having secret meetings - I think we all agree that if this is the case, they should stop immediately.
I think that liberals who are forced to pay higher gas prices should do what they did when Obama fell down on his promise about closing Guantanamo - they withheld their votes until he closed it like he said he would. They should do the same thing here - vote Republican until Obama lowers these gas prices.
After all, he's rich - plus he has somebody to fill up his limos and jets with a credit card that is paid for by the taxpayers. So, he might not even KNOW that gas prices are high - a lot of rich people don't notice that sort of thing. He's too busy fulfilling his campaign promises, like closing Guantanamo.

The election of 2012 was a rare occurrence - President Obama was the first President since George Washington to be re-elected with fewer votes than he got the first time around. This happened in spite of the admission by at least one Obama supporter that she voted for Obama 6 times last year in Ohio.
So, if you are a Republican, and you did not vote for Romney because he wasn't aligned with you on your favorite issue... How's Obama doing on your favorite issue? Do us all a favor... Remember this the next time around. They vote up to 6 times for their guy. We need to at least show up and vote once.
You see, the thing about a Republican president is, no matter what his position on the issues, he kinda has to listen to the other Republicans (like you) to stay in power. And politicians want to stay in power. Do you feel like Obama is listening to your position on your pet issue? Probably not. He doesn't need you.
And you're part of the reason he's President again - whether Romney's too rich for you, too white for you, too male for you, too religious for you, or just from Massachusetts - By staying home, you turned Melowese Richardson's 6 votes for Obama into 7.

I couldn't help but notice that when President Obama jetted off to a pricey golf resort for his vacation, the press complained. They complained about not being allowed to take pictures of the $1,000 per hour golf lessons, or the round with Tiger Woods.
They did not complain about the 'inequality' - you'll notice that people from the President's old neighborhood in Chicago don't play with Tiger Woods much.
So, we can now see that liberals only oppose 'inequality' when their political opponents have the advantage. This is an important observation, because that's how it's done in places like Cuba and North Korea. The SUBJECTS are equal. The leaders play golf with celebrities. They pay for their $1,000 per hour golf lessons with money siphoned from the subjects.
To be clear - this is not where America is headed. This is where America currently IS.
