But you are now seeing those on the left saying that the president got to start participating in the presidency...

Yeah, targeting conservatives for the benefit of Obama's reelection wasn't something anyone was aware of... Except for the thousands of us the IRS targeted.

And Homeland Security targeted.

And the FBI profiled...

Hey you creepy Nazi Schieffer if this had been happening to your beloved liberals or gays or union members you would have seen it.

Yeah, Schieffer - just keep reading the letters written in dem war rooms by people pretending to be conservative - letters crafted for you.... your hatred's that important for the SS troops on the left. They've got a useful fool and they know it. Eff you SSchieffer...

No, Rush has this exactly right. Obama has the narrative perfect---he's unaware, a "missing person." He has completely successfully foisted this image of an incompetent.

He is 100% in control of the storyline, and is radically succeeding in the full sense of the word.

Schieffer has to decide which side he’s on, but I’m guessing he doesn’t even know if he’s wearing pants or not.

Schieffer the Obama fascism enabler, hardly defender of the faith or the Constitution.

If there was a sword in a stone, he would have to fall on it and die, instead of pulling it out and to kill the dragon.

I might have heard this on Rush.

Two Russians landed in a gulag in the 1930's. They looked around and one said to the other, "If only Stalin knew about this, he would put a stop to it." The other nodded in agreement.

True believers are just that. Let us hope that the rot is so pervasive that the good guys can keep rolling up the bad guys until they get to the guy at the top.

It was BS put out by hillary and was proved a lie and it was one of the things that got her fired from the Watergate hearings... she was incompetent... a liar... and corrupt. She actually wanted to deny Nixon council.

Some good stuff in this discussion. Liberals asking questions about Obama and Hillary. I never thought I would see this.

The fawning media must NOW ask the questions they should have asked THEN---when Ohaha first surfaced as a candidate.

Who is this guy in the White House?

Remember that O's PR person----Anita "Mao" Dunn---said AFTER the 2008 election that the O Team "allowed" the media to know only what THEY wanted them to know. No probing questions and interviews were allowed.

Hillary and Bill had pics of Obama in Muslim garb--but Teddy Kennedy warned them not to use them.

==========================================

THIS WE KNOW The Obamanations are a tight-knit clique of socialists/communists/unions/progs/liberals----they see themselves as superior---bound together by "enlightened" values — reason, tolerance, diversity and equality. The rest of us are unworthy and are to be suppressed and marginalized.......using any means possible.

The Ohaha savages duped the citizenry, led us over a multi-trillion dollar deficit cliff, into massive corrupt bailouts, and atrocities like amnesty and Obamacare. Their motto: "Everything For Us-- Nothing For You."

In the wake of Benghazi, the IRS abuses, etc, we are reminded that the Obamanoids are ruthless predators w/ no empathy for others and no remorse; anti-social psychopaths who recognize no moral boundaries--aggressively going after what they want, irregardless of the consequences to others.

I think you’d get better analysis from five guys down at the local barbershop, than with Bob Schieffer.

ANY guy at the local barbershop! No one’s memory is more selective than Schieffer’s. “[T]alking about blowing up the Brookings Institution . . .”? Schieffer conveniently forgets that Nixon’s enemies-list included communist sympathizers, “anti-war” critics (in quotes because anti-war meant anti-American. Fonda et al. were fine with supporting the wars waged by America’s enemies), terrorists (Black Panthers, Weather Underground) who went beyond “talking about” blowing up buildings and people! Nixon’s list was nothing more, nothing broader, than what a bipartisan House UnAmerican Activities Committee would have produced. Except, of course, that the dems had just torpedoed that committee!

Schieffer also gave air time to every single “peace” group returning from North Vietnam, advising POW relatives to take advantage of the groups’ services in delivering mail to and from the prisoners. Again forgetting that the Geneva Conventions demanded free mail-flow and that every peace-group visit furthered communist propaganda.

I’d say he was a tool; but even that overstates his role as a “journalist.”

The mainstream press is dying...

If the press had been the propaganda arm of the Nixon Administration they would have died years ago... Their numbers are horrible - no one trusts them. Used car salesmen are considered more trustworthy.

Reading the full article, it pops out that Schieffer is more worried about Obama not "taking hold" of the scandals and the government itself than anything else.

Reading between the lines, Obama is still his god, his cult leader. He is more rueful, more disappointed, more crestfallen than he is outraged and worried for his country.

Folks, all this blather from the media ostensibly criticising Obama is done MORE IN SORROW THAN IN ANGER. These scandals are terrible blows because they're difficult to contain....especially the IRS one. But the media will soon be back on its feet again....and will be in full Obama protective mode in short order.

The leftist media is what it is, it hasn't changed, it won't change....and it will still blindly have his back.

If I recall correctly, Nixon merely suggested using the IRS to target those on his 'enemies list', and was turned down by his own appointee and Nixon didn't press the issue. It would appear that we had a bit more integrity back in the day.

We also had a lot more integrity in the press, which today compares someone talking about using the IRS as a weapon to someone who actually was using the IRS as a weapon.

The NY Times would accuse Obama’s critics on the matter of blowing it out of proportion for political reasons.

Looks to me like he said the President is not evil like Nixon, he’s just incompetent and stupid. It’s the radicals around him who are the evil ones and he has to get a handle on them.

"...Inside each and every liberal lurks a tyrant, trying to get out..."

The nut of the problem, eh?

It's amazing, really...

My sis, the social worker, a gentle soul, indeed. But a liberal, thru and thru.

She is convinced that she knows best how to run everybody else's life. Most especially those of rich people -- whose wealth is gained unfairly -- and conservatives, who are naturally inclined to be uncaring brutes.

All this save for her clients, of course, for whom she is filled with compassion and care. She doesn't expect them to change their slovenly ways -- because she needs them to need her to care for them in some way.

She can't bear independence in others...and strives to make us all dependent on her and her sort. Liberalism IS a mental disease.

I was a guy who wore a dress shirt to school back then with the obligatory pocket protector.

I spent my time absorbing whatever the media dished out including hours of hearings featuring Senator Sam Ervin, Senator Howard Baker and that Watergate committee.

***more worried about Obama not "taking hold" of the scandals and the government***

Rush put in perspective what I had been troubled by for some time: Obama does not wish to appear to be 'governing'... everything that goes well [bin Laden] he can take credit for, and everything that goes poorly, he can share the outrage of the public.

It has worked extremely well - with the overwhelming help of the traitorous media.

I continue to find parallels in some ways with 'Poppa Joe' Stalin [Dzugashvilli]... During the purges good Marxists in the provinces would write Fearless Leader and say, 'Poppa Joe, you don't know what is going on. The secret police are rounding up good socialists and carrying them off to who knows where... Please help us!'

Naturally in no time at all the concerned family - or friends - of those arrested would also disappear. Who could tell what was going on? How could Poppa Joe be so busy as not to notice... not to know?

Well, at the next big patriotic parade there was Poppa Joe smiling and glad handing the children and their parents. What a wonderful guy! ... what a pity that he just never gets to hear what is really going on! Then he would find time to sell them some pixie dust... [with the help of Pravda, of course.]

Whatever Ob@ma is, the Democraps and their media are Stalinists!

You are so right, MinuteGal! The Liberal media will ALWAYS cover for and protect Obama!

Oh how I wish ALL our fellow Conservatives who spend so much time beating up on Republicans and making the Liberals smile, would take Andrew Breitbart’s words to heart and spend time beating up on the Liberals instead!

Sharing the words from my friend Bev I just received which states my feelings better than I could!

From my friend Bev:
Every true Conservative I know was certain we would defeat Obama last November but sadly, we were wrong. We didn't count on the 3 million “purists” among us who wouldn't vote for Romney because he wasn't “pure” enough for them!

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/11/08/why_did_three_million_republicans_stay_home

Well now these “purists” are outraged that Obama used the IRS to deny them tax exempt status??!! Really??!!! I guess it was okay with these “purists” that this schmuck in the White House appeased and apologized to those who have threatened this country and our Troops for the last 4 years! These “purists” were going to show us Conservatives not to nominate a candidate that isn't “pure”!!!

Our Troops suffered the most by those among us who stayed home and didn't vote. It is my hope that maybe now ALL Conservatives will heed the warning that the late Great Warrior Andrew Breitbart conveyed to us all: UNITE or we lose! Please listen to his speech:

I probably need to invest in a pocket protector, too. I’ve got about a dozen books on Watergate sitting on the other side of the room, including this massive Government Printing Office transcript of the tapes that probably weighs about 5-10 pounds. And someone actually had to type all that back then—today Obama’s would probably get transcribed by Dragon Naturally Speaking or something.
