Also, John E, I am still waiting to hear why some supposed IRS "scandal" is what we need to focus on when there were real scandals, scandals which resulted in millions of innocent people dead, perpetrated under Bush.

Why should persecuting Obama over petty B.S. (making it harder for rich people to f*#k with politics) take precedence over doing something about the war crimes perpetrated under Bush?

Your lack of a rational argument for this might effect your credibility, John...

His argument is that democrats would make a fuss about it if a republican was president.

^^^

I have not seen him (John E) provide any argument for this. I was actually predicting his argument would center around a consistency theme in that we all call for the shrub to get judged for his crimes whilst apparently ignoring Obama's "crimes". Apparently the whole notion of handling Bush/Cheney et all first, then letting whatever precedent was set be used to judge Obama (we would all let him off given the circumstances), is utterly lost on him, despite years of employment in Law. It's a joke.

So while the current trend of low interest rates and QE was established under republican appointees and is essentially unchanged, you want to make sure that people remember Obama is president and Hereford it is somehow tainted, unclean and not anything like what would have happened had a "real conservative" imposed your utopian monetary policy. Got it.

So far, quantitative easing has consistently produced positive results. QE1 made sense. It was a reasonable choice, given the economic circumstances. QE2 was somewhat justified. But since it seems to have become the "new normal", I'm concerned about the time when we have to turn off the spigot.

If we can ease out of this easing, without too much pain, this policy will be considered a wise course of action. However, I think the Fed is postponing the inevitable because they know this policy is what's driving this economic boom. When it's gone, so will the boom.

If I'm right, Obama will get the blame. His people continued this policy long after it was ever intended. Time will tell.

To sum it up (and address your point), if QE turns out to be a failed policy, Obama gets the blame. It's not a liberal vs. conservative. It's about who was in charge.

Edited to add: IF QE turns out to be a wise policy, Obama gets the credit.

The authority of the Federal Reserve System is derived from statutes enacted by the U.S. Congress and the System is subject to congressional oversight.

Idaho unemployment dipped below 5% last month for the first time since 2008. http://www.ktvb.com/news/Idaho-unemployment-rate-drops-below-5-percent-264114531.html

It really doesn't matter here, since the right-wing sheep will almost always vote Republican.

However! Our low unemployment rate is yet another sign that our nation's economy is doing fine------despite Congressional Republicans trying to destroy our economy to kick Democrats out of the White House and political power.



Why do Republicans in Congress hate America?



Heidi remembers her Republican grandfather confessing that he voted for Roosevelt in the 1930's because: "I couldn't help myself."

Eric Holder should be indicted for human trafficking and child abuse.

Prince Barry is encouraging the maiming and deaths of children for politics.


Children who travel via Death Train must jump onto a moving freight car. Minors who cannot successfully pull themselves onto the traveling cars fall onto the tracks--many are left with extreme injuries.

Erica Dahl-Bredine, an El Salvador representative for Catholic Relief Services, told the Colorado Gazette that those who get injured on the train tracks often return home. She added, "The couplings between the cars are notoriously dangerous. I see children who have lost an arm and a leg or both legs."

The Obama Administration's actions and rhetoric, which has caused Central Americans to believe they will receive amnesty if they come to the U.S., is likely the driving force behind the surge at the border.

"The U.S. is partly responsible for foreign nationals taking extreme measures that risk the lives of their children," Zack Taylor, Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, told Breitbart Texas. "Our government is encouraging foreign nationals to come into our country illegally and stay."

Specifically, what "rhetoric" did Obama use which could only/most reasonably be understood as encouraging "foreign nationals" to "storm the border"? Just curious.

Republican Tool

Real scandals or Fake Right Wing Scandals?

Apparently Obama has zero real scandals

Benghazi: Fake
IRS: Fake
Fast and Furious: Obama had nothing to do with it
Lois Lerner: Fake
1000 other BS scandals: fake


what real scandals are there that could be compared to the scandals of Reagan, daddy Bush and Baby Bush: NONE
