Not so sure about that last part anymore.

    NBC is reporting that Eric Holder personally signed off on the search warrant to seize reporter’s emails… now Obama is ordering Holder to investigate himself?

    If this isn’t an intentional coverup, it is absolute incompetence.

    If you would be so kind, show me one thing this Regime has done that was not flaming incompetent! You may also include points where they did something correct if you were looking from the viewpoint of a FLAMING FUCKING COMMIE!

    Got elected and re-elected, rammed through most of the crap they wanted, bled the treasury, weakened the military, etc. Just because the results they are getting are objectively bad for the nation, that doesn’t mean that achieving those results is an act of incompetency.

    Pretty much everything they’ve tried.
    Sure, there have been some missteps along the way but they’ve been spectacularly successful so far.

    We’re patriots who love America and the Constitution, and want her to be strong, prosperous, and free so we see anyone who isn’t achieving that as incompetent.

    We’re dealing with a regime that hates America and the Constitution and whose goal is to “fundamentally transform” her into a socialist utopia. With the economic destruction of the middle class and hyper-regulation of business they’re making everyone dependent on government, thus ensuring civil strife by creating unbridgeable gulfs among the people while weakening the military and at the same time militarizing law enforcement into a domestic occupation force that’s “just as strong and just as well funded” as the military.

    They’re doing all this openly, right in front of us, and daring us to do anything about it.

    We’re watching them and complaining but otherwise we’ve been cowed into impotent inaction.

    Incompetent? No. So far they’ve been fucking brilliant.

    At this point the patriots should already have targets in mind – they should be practicing,drilling, and gathering intelligence. Dry run time.

    I would not want to trade places with you. Not sure I would handle it as well, but you’re right. You have a lot of latitude right now and in a sick distorted way, I envy you for that.

    Obama Fails to Salute Marine
    9:48 AM, May 24, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER

    Via CBS’s Mark Knoller:

    Pres Obama boarded Marine One without returning salute of US Marine at the steps. The Pres then came back out to shake the Marine’s hand.

    Pres Obama chats with and shakes hand of US Marine whose salute he didn’t return on boarding Marine One today. twitter.com/markknoller/st…

    — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) May 24, 2013

    UPDATE: More from the pool reporter:

    Under gray skies and intermittent drizzle, President Obama boarded Marine One at 9:30 a.m. EDT in an open press event.

    A few White House regulars were atwitter (and on Twitter) when the President walked directly up the steps of Marine One without saluting the Marine on duty. He soon came out of the helicopter, walked down the steps, shook hands with the Marine and engaged in a brief conversation.

    re: Commander in Chief returning salutes.

    It’s a nice token of respect, but absolutely not required.

    1. Even though CINC, he’s a civilian.

    2. If he decides not to salute, it’s only a breach of custom at best, as he is not subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

    3. He’s CINC, he may be sending a signal with the non-return of honors, i.e:. I’m working on peace in the Middle East and I’m a little preoccupied; the Marine Recondos scrooed the pooch on that last mission, so scroo this guy: shoulda used the five iron on the second shot of the seventh hole at Atlanta, the six was just too wussy; military uniform = mindless drone incapable of thought or feeling; etc.

    It’s actually a relatively new thing, Presidents returning salutes. Civilians out of uniform and all …

    I’m willing to cut Obama some slack here. He is what he is …

    Talk about revolution is cheap. Think about what it means in terms of blood. I grant America is in a sorry state, but a long way from a shooting war.

    I would disagree. I think we’re one incident away from a flat out shooting rebellion of some sort. I have no idea what it may be, and I have no doubt the trigger will catch everyone by surprise. Right now trust in the government is at an historical low. When it drops this low, it doesn’t take much to start a revolt.
    Currently it’s been within the system, but as the news of the IRS acting as Obama’s secret police and suppressing the conservative groups spreads, people start thinking that they have nothing to lose.
    Congress is generally not responsive to the people, and the bureaucracy is totally out of control.
    Bad times have arrived. :em06:

    Full on rebellion? Aways off I think. But isolated “uprisings” are in the near future. We have the Trayvon Martin case around the corner. Run a scenario where the perpetually disgruntled go on rampage and manage to get their asses shot off by a group of harry homeowners. Add the Nazi’s that showed up down there last time to the mix….meanwhile Obama is taking a beating (cause racist!) And it could be a nice warm summer
