Gee,,,what a surprise. And the media has already moved past it. Whats that again about a scandal finally sticking to The One? And the "greatest president in U.S. hisory" (as historians will proclaim) just laughs and laughs.

As long as the freeloaders keep getting their freebies and handouts, Barry can do to them anything that he wants. The lazy sicko “demographic” is skyrocketing in this country.

All of us who lived through Watergate just shake our heads in disbelief at how the press is abrogating its responsibility to preserve our republic.

Yup. Used to be they were eager to bring down the great and powerful no matter what party. Now they are just political activists.

“As long as the freeloaders keep getting their freebies and handouts, Barry can do to them anything that he wants. The lazy sicko “demographic” is skyrocketing in this country.”

A number of years ago the rural area I live in had an abundance of cotton rats. One morning I walked out the door and noticed that under the bird feeder were about ten or twelve rats eating the seed that had fallen to the ground. I went back inside and grabbed a .22 rifle, sat down on the porch steps, took aim, and picked one rat off. I stood up to put the rifle away, but to my amazement, in a mere 15 seconds all the remaining rats returned for their free breakfast. So I sat back down, took aim, and picked off another rat. They all ran away for another 15 seconds, but the temptation of all that free food was just too much. This went on, with them eating the free food with their dead comrades laying there besides them, until I picked them all off....

Of course this has absolutely no relevance to what this regime may or may not do, but rats will be rats.

Was listening to the VA hearing on CSPAN tonight. The Rep's kept bringing up quotes from the VA to the committee dating back as far as 2005 documenting the same problems year after year.

Don't think its about O, its just that most Americans realize that the politicians of both parties are fools who cannot fix any problem regardless of party.

He’s at 44%.

Do you think there 44% who haven’t a clue what a VA is? Who do you think those 44% voted for?

Romney was just about right in his estimate.

The same thing was said about Clinton and his cigar and lying under oath perversion.

The proof, though, was in the next election—no one can tell me that Clinton’s character didn’t hurt Gore. It did.

I can believe that O has sunk about as low in approval rating as he’s going to get. But I also believe that the approval is going to get shallower and less enthusiastic and the disapproval is going to get more intense.

One of the main reasons the problems can’t be corrected in all areas of our government is that the Federal employees are protected by being members of UNIONS. It’s nearly impossible for a Fed employee to be fired for violating the laws or even just for incompetence. ....Nothing will change until unionization of Federal and State employees is ended, IMO.

Nothing will stick to him. He will never be held accountable for anything. I have seen some colorful descriptions, of the things that the Obungler could get away with, but today, for the first time I could ever remember, some guest on Fox News, right there on national TV, said he could murder someone, in plain view of the media, and get away with it. He is right. We are right. He could do exactly that, and get away with it.

Few issues actually get into day to day conversation. Other than with friends who are like minded, the only issue I recall over the past six years that comes up in conversation with strangers is the government shutdown last fall. The media controls the country’s mindset. I’ve never heard anyone talk about ACORN, fast and furious, the IRS scandal, benzagi, or any other obama screw up. Government shutdown made into constant conversation and small talk.

Not sure about that. The Reuters and Fox polls that came out yesterday had him at 38 and 40 respectively. Which could be byproduct of Bergdahl deal too.

One of the reasons is that Republican leaders don’t really talk about .... They talk about cutting deals.

Very true, as well. Our side has dreadful messaging. The only ones that seem to do it right are Ted Cruz and the NRA. The rest are dreadful.

My thinking was in line with the power of the media/entertainment/education effect on public discussion. The things that are clearly important don't make it into conversation because the typical American barely hears of them, or hears a one-sided version.

Your point is quite valid that our side does a terrible job getting it out. We have two strikes against us with the media environment, but the third strike is self-imposed.

Correct. The Marxist cannot drop below 43% approval. That’s a very solid, concrete and reinforced floor. All future bad news will have no effect on that 43% — they will love and worship him, regardless.

“..........Nothing will change until unionization of Federal and State employees is ended, IMO.”

Agree. One of the earliest missions in the Left’s assault on America was to establish control, and increase the number of government employees through unionization controlled by them. The rest was history.

It’s the Leftist bureaucracies I’ve been railing about for seemingly ever that control the departments ie; FDA, DE, DOE, HHS, etc. that have been added to the executive division over the many years. Politicians come, and go, but bureaucrats are a constant, and have learned how to control the system.

The reason his numbers didn’t drop is because I think it is settled. Those who love the puke support him and those of us who despise the creep, are against him. So the numbers are set. Few of those who love him are going to turn on him now.

The reason is simple.

For most people, they have no connection to a VA hospital. Even many vets, who have been avoiding the VA for decades (and I count many family members who could have gone, but chose not to).

In short, it isn’t “real” to the majority of people
