These scandals are being made up by Faux News and the NeoCon Republicans. You are correct, President Obama has done a fine job as President.

No.1 Alfred is crazy.

No.2 Hilter's Germany would never allow a Fox News.

No.3--Obama's Propaganda News outlets.

A. ABC News ABC's Pres Ben Sherwood has a sister Elizabeth Sherwood--Special advisor to Obama.

B. CBS News CBS's Pres, Dave Rhodes, his brother is Top advisor to Obama.

C. CNN's News Pres is Virginia Mosely, her husband is Tom Nides Deputy Sec for Hillary Clinton

D. NBC was owned by Gen' Elec their CEO has Jeffery Immelt- Obama's top economic advisor.

E. msnbc news--They get stimulus tax money from Obama to run this propaganda machine.

Obama's plan is to control the News and then you control the thought process of the people.

His plan of government controlling all news would be complete if not for FOX NEWS.

There are good people that will follow Obama to Hell, just like their were good Jews with their women and children that marched to the Gas Chambers and they did it without a Whimper.. Don't ever lose sight of your weapons-buy more

Pardon me Mr. Spencer?

" If the intent is to demean and discredit the Obama presidency, it's not working."

Yes sir, it is. He is doing it all by himself and his administration is helping him.

"In December of 2009, Joe Klein, columnist for the New York Times, said that the legacy and success of the Obama presidency would depend on the passage of the health care bill and troop withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan. The president has gone beyond that "

I quote from the New York times last week,,,,

"The administration has now lost all credibility,"

In other words, these years will mark the inception of a new epoch: a span of time in which Americans began to think differently in reference to health coverage, immigration practices, gay rights, gun laws and, most importantly, how we deal with our friends and foes abroad.

I can sum it up in one word

Alfred, no one is trying to "demean" the President, he's doing a pretty good job of doing it himself.

Daniel, Republicans are not trying to "bring down" the President - we just want answers to the nefarious policies and scandals his administration exhibits. Benghazi is not going away and neither is the IRS scandal. Targeting reporters who work for networks they despise and the NSA retrieving data from every electronic device we use is not what a democracy is all about.

This administration uses the Constitution only when it benefits them.

Here's how I think the majority of Americans see this.

If it is backed by Obama, the GOP opposes it. If Obama claims the law of Gravity was inked and passed by Democrats, the GOP would float off the freaking planet just to prove him wrong.

The party of NO is going to have to answer to this eventually and they just don't have the base left to make up for all the groups they alienated with their unpopular positions. The ACA is going to be the final nail, when it's used as a measuring stick to compare states that embrace it, verses those who sabotage it.

Exactly, mrright, but then they'd have to tear themselves away from "Morning Joe", and worst of all, "Chris Matthews". That's where they get their daily talking points, and sexual gratification.

the tribune has determined that a word that a U.S. president used to describe his program is politiclly incorrect. sad time in U.S history. don't know how this will end but it won't be a happy ending.

Hitler wanted and received control of Banks and Newspapers, schools and confiscated personal Guns. He took away the Germans ability to protect their families.

You only need to know that the opposition party-Republicans in this case, are the party of NO No new spending, No to a tyranical and unjust IRS, No to being taxed on global warming BS--Obama said NO to KeystoneXL-and the Republicans say NO to higher gasoline pricing. NO to giving illegals free college and medical. There is an orderly way to become a citizen. Obama says No to enforcing our borders, Obama says NO to enforcing our language. Obama says NO to America,

MrR Great points: Also the Liberal NY Times publicly stated that ---Obama has lost all creditability---That means Obama is a liar--That's not Fox News saying it--That's the NY Times--they backed Obama--So when an Important friend calls you a Liar, You are a Liar---Obama is a Liar

I am one that will readily admit that I have lost all respect that I once had for this president because of the way he handles or should I say doesn't handle difficult situations that he is faced with. His response to all the situations have been...I didn't know about it. Well, as he is so fond of telling the American public, the buck stops here. If he is truly not involved then why is he doing nothing...why is no one being held accountable. We are told time and time again that important information was not given to the President...would you as a world leader accept this from your cabinet members? It seems to me that President Obama's answer and reaction to all of these scandals is to pretend that it didn't happen and hope the American public will forget about it. You are right in only one thing you have said "Washington politics is mind boggling"
