I think the worst mistake Obama has made in his Presidency, is putting Republicans in his Administration, in the Name of Bipartisanship. I think they are indeed like "Foxes in the Hen House".

Having the Gov't. know who I call and who calls me...or listenng to my boring conversatons, is a small price that I will willing pay to protect my, and Others', Life...and I feel that I am getting a bargain!
In ordinary times, my feeling would be...if I'm not doing anything wrong, what business is it of the Gov't.'s who talk to or who talks to me. But, these are NOT ordinary times!
If you aren't a Threat to this Nation, or it's People, and you're not doing anything wrong or illegal, why would you care, under the circumstances?
I see the opportunity for abuse of this Policy, but I don't believe that's happened, yet. If and when it does, that's the time to get irate and take action, but not now, when we need all the protection we can get, in any way we can get it!
Use alittle Common Sense!
Good morning my friend ! You know, I got that same basic answer from a lot of Republicans when I was mad as heck that the Bush Administration wanted access to what books I borrow at the public library. They asked me what I was reading that I didn't want the government to know about. Well, I wasn't reading anything that I didn't want them to know about, BUT that was exactly the point. I am a citizen of these United States, and as such, I have a right to privacy. I have committed no crime, and my book borrowings and my phone conversations are (and should be) none of anyone's business but mine. I shouldn't have to prove each time that I borrow a book from the library or each time I use the phone or send an e-mail that I am not a terrorist. Sure we can sit on our hands and say the loss of privacy is worth it for the security it provides...until one day when it isn't. If we are forced to live in a police state to keep us safe, those terrorists have won not just the battle, but the war. Our citizens were so rattled by what happened on 911 that we allowed our President to go to war in a country that had nothing to do with the attack, to engage in torture of prisoners, to use rendition to get information, to open an offshore prison where people can be detained indefinately without due process, all in the name of safety. Now we find that the Obama Administration has been collecting phone information on all of us (and the Good Lord knows what else) for years. This ALL seems decidedly unamerican to me, and I am not about to change my mind on any of it simply because Obama is President instead of Bush.
That's my take and I look forward to your comments.

That may be true of some of the Republicans in the administration Linda, BUT the Bush holdover at the IRS is Obama's saving grace when it comes to that "scandal". It is going to be hard for Republicans to make a case that the President ordered the slow walking of 501C4 applications, when the head of the agency was a Republican Bush appointee.
I believe Bob Gates was a good Secretary of Defense, who served the President and this country well, and the Republican Transportation Secretary was one of the few in the administration who came to the defense of the President when the stimulis was being attacked unmercifully by the right wing of the Republican Party. On these appointments, I think Obama came out a winner.

Thanks for posting this Linda. I don't see any way for the reformers to succeed until Republicans begin to choose candidates for office who wish to govern instead of destroy government.
Voters in both parties want solutions to the problems the nation faces. Democrats are looking for liberal solutions and conservatives are looking for conservative solutions, BUT the vast majority want solutions. Blocking Democratic initiatives will not be enough to provide electorial victories for Republicans forever. Eventually, they will have to offer a conservative vision for governance or they will be relegated to permanent minority status. The reformers know this, the right wing seems to disagree and that is tearing the party in two.

Didn’t you start this post with the phrase “think about this in a rational way”? What rational person could look at the recent news about our government spying on innocent citizens and rationally say “I don’t believe this has happened yet”?

Officials: NSA mistakenly intercepted emails, phone calls of innocent Americans

http://openchannel.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/06/...

Oh, that’s right. I forgot who made the post. Rational is not an operative word.

You know, while we’re giving away our rights to the most transparent administration ever, I can think of a couple of others that we should turn in at the door.

Why stop at listening in to phone calls and reading emails. You know how boring and labor intensive that is? We’re gonna just break your door down and search you, your house, and your car. No pesky warrants required – they take too long to obtain, and you might have time to dump the evidence. Just barge right in.

Plus, we need to do something about that “right to remain silent” crap? That one causes all sorts of problems for the police and prosecutors. Throw it out. From here on in, you will be forced to talk to the cops and testify against yourself.

And while we’re at it, we’re pretty pissed about all those people that get away with crimes while we all KNOW they did it. Casey Anthony, you’re toast,‘cause we’re doing away with that double jeopardy crap.

You also have the right to a speedy trial, but we threw that out the window when Major Hassan had his workplace meltdown back in 2009.

We can’t be safe with everyone having guns, so we’ll make it so that only the government and government officials can have them. That way no one has to take their “If we ban guns, then only criminals will have guns” bumper stickers off their cars.

When Bush gave himself the power to "legally" spy on Americans, he ceded that authority to Obama. I didn't like it then and I don't like it now; however, I don't recall ANY conservatives complaining about it then. I specifically recall Rush Limbaugh agreeing with a dramatic, crying caller when she stated "What good are Civil Liberties if you're dead?!" They were assuring us that if the president DIDN'T listen to our phone calls, we'd all undoubtedly die at the hands of terrorists.

Funny how a single election can completely reverse a conservative's ideals.

The Stupid Party;

I add, that this survey also shows why those states with GOP majorities are doing all the can to repress the student vote. North Carolina has legislated that, students must vote in their parents' home district, or the parents will be cited and fined.

Last year, they split a college campus, here in the Asheville area, right down the middle. It created a lot of confusion, and opened doors for continuing GOP lawsuits challenging the results.

How do you like that?

Bush supporter's bumper sticker with a noose.(photo: Getty Images)

The College Republican National Committee has commissioned a report examining the party's dim prospects with millennials, who gave Barack Obama a five-million-vote edge over Mitt Romney in the 2012 election.

The focus-group reviews are in - and they are brutal. Here are the 10 most scathing quotes from the admirably frank report, titled "Grand Old Party of a Brand New Generation."

1. "Young 'winnable' Obama voters were asked to say what words came to mind when they heard 'Republican Party.' The responses were brutal: closed-minded, racist, rigid, old-fashioned."

2. "Asked which words least described the GOP, respondents gravitated toward 'open-minded'(35%),'tolerant'( 25%),'caring'(22%), and 'cooperative'(21%)."

3. "For the GOP, being thought of as closed-minded is hardly a good thing. But if the GOP is thought of as the 'stupid party,' it may as well be the kiss of death."

4. "A Hispanic voter in the San Diego focus group harshly laid out how she thought Republicans viewed social mobility for immigrants:'[They have] that mentality that you're born like royalty and the peasants stay peasants.'"

5. "An outright majority of young people still think those Republican policies are to blame [for the Great Recession]- hardly an encouraging finding."

6. "If young voters primarily thought the Republican Party's policy plan in 2012 was to prevent gay marriage and to ensure very low taxes for very rich people ... it's understandable that a large majority voted the other way.... Opposition to gay marriage is a 'deal breaker' to one out of four young voters."

7. "Our focus on taxation and business issues has left many young voters thinking they will only reap the benefits of Republican policies if they become wealthy or rise to the top of a big business. We've become the party that will pat you on your back when you make it, but won't offer a hand to help you get there."

8. "Perhaps most troubling for Republicans is the finding from the March 2013 CRNC survey that showed 54% of young voters saying 'taxes should go up on the wealthy.'"

9. "When asked if they thought any Republican policies were making them personally worse off, one replied,'Arizona comes to mind, all the laws that they've passed there regarding immigration and being allowed to pull somebody over just based on how they look.'"

10. "It is not that young voters are enamored of the Democratic Party. They simply dislike the Republican Party more."

Hey, hey, yo, yo
Eric Holder’s gotta go.

Eric Holder, tied with Janet Reno for the worst Attorney General ever award, is going to be Obama’s fall guy. And it won’t be because TEApublicans are crying foul.

This from that bastion of conservative thought, the Washington Post:

Attorney General Eric Holder is not up to the task

By David Ignatius Opinion Writer, Washington Post

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/david-...

“People are looking for the wrong “scandal” about Attorney General Eric Holder. The problem with Holder is the plain fact that, in the judgment of a wide range of legal colleagues, he has been a mediocre attorney general.”

OUCH! Wow THAT smarts! Especially coming from a libiberal.

“Holder’s mistakes in management and judgment are clear in the current controversy about leak investigations.”

A HARD left jab.

“and he failed utterly to anticipate the political flap that erupted when Justice informed the Associated Press that it had collected the call records for more than 20 phone lines.”

And another left.

“Holder substitutes his political judgment for his legal judgment, and his political judgment isn’t very good”

A HUGE left uppercut!

“Holder’s Justice Department has been quick to jump on the bandwagon of politically popular prosecutions, sometimes with disastrous results.”

They just keep coming!

“The criminal prosecutions of BP executives involved in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill drew political applause, but they have been a legal mess. A judge threw out much of the indictment of BP executive David Rainey last month because of insufficient evidence, and criminal cases against two BP rig supervisors also look shaky.”

How can he put up with much more of this punishment?

“Part of the attorney general’s job is clearing political obstacles to allow effective law enforcement. Here, too, many attorneys fault Holder. A classic example was the plan to prosecute 9/11 plotter Khalid Sheik Mohammed in a civilian court in New York. Holder made what many regard as the right decision to try the case there. But he hadn’t done the necessary political groundwork among New York and national politicians, and when a political firestorm ignited, he reversed his decision.”

Another left uppercut. I’m afraid it’s all but over, folks.

“Feckless” is the word one disappointed Washington legal insider uses to describe this and other Holder decisions.”

How can anyone survive this pummeling?

“President Obama talks about his desire to improve the performance of the federal bureaucracy so that citizens can believe in government again. The Justice Department is one of the areas where this standard matters most.

But under Holder, it just hasn’t been met. That’s the real scandal here — tolerance of mediocre performance.”

It ain’t over until the fat lady sings, folks, but she’s tunin’ up.

Getting rid of Holder did not cause the erection. That was caused by a liberal eating his own.
