1. It's all a right wing smear campaign
Mad up scandal after scandal, all with the goal of making the president and his administration look bad, and to help the sorry lot of republicans running for office next year have something to try and win with! And lest we not forget the same tactics used in 2010 of right wing trolls, and now I expect tea party trolls, coming on boards like this to keep the pot stirred up, and the seem to be doing a pretty good job of that these days!
To me is just plain insane that so many on the far left want to pull this same crap all over again. Didn't they learn from what happened before when not only did republicans and tea party clowns win the House, but also took control of so many states, and we all know just how bad that has turned out!
Right now the goal is to keep the media tied up with all the BS scandals they can, and get the public to ignore the other things that are NOT getting done, or some of the total insanity that is being pushed by the tea publicans in the house as well as in many state governments. Passing insane laws, making insane comments, and just plain trying to destroy not only our nation, but many states.
People need to really stop and think about what is going on, and instead of jumping the "anti-Obama" bandwagon with the paid right wing trolls, they should be worrying about not losing the Senate, and taking back the house. I have seen the most obvious trolling here since I came here back in 2008. While some trolls do get called out because they go way, way to far, it seems like most time the anti-Obama crowd just joins in as long as it's against the president.
I love your picture, and I just wish people would wait for all the facts to come out before they jump the gun and go ballistic. The Snowdon issue is a prime example. It has a life all of it's own and so many really important issues are being pushed off the boards because there are so many new threads all about the NSA issue. People are already divided on this issue, and I really don't think they will change their minds on how they feel, well some may when the "facts" do come out, but for the most part it's the same thing day after day "he is a hero, he is a traitor, and on and on.
I just hope people start paying attention. I do think that things are not nearly as insane in the real world as they seem to be here lately, but if we don't keep the Senate next year, we are in deep trouble because nothing at all will get done the rest of the presidents term, and only getting the voters out will make a difference.
