Do you think President Obama is personally behind his administration's efforts to silence the opposition through IRS investigations and obtaining the AP's records?

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Too soon to say
  4. We'll never know

From Politico 5-15-13

"President Obama "obviously likes giving speeches more than he does running the executive branch," Chris Matthews said tonight.

"Yes, you read that right: The MSNBC host who in 2008 felt a "thrill going up my leg" after hearing Obama speak has grown disenchanted. Tonight's episode of Hardball saw Matthews delivering a rare, unforgiving grilling of the president as severe as anything that might appear on Fox News."

Uh oh, Veritas, that looks like a media person's opinion. Is that news?

Veritas, you don't think papers should editorialize? At all?

Then tell that to all the liberal papers too, in triplicate.

That was free too.

Of course Obama is behind it..

What could we Expect?

This is what you get when you accomplish nothing, demonstrate no leadership, publish no expectations, and then BLAME EVERYBODY who works for you for things gone wrong. Obama is a cheap gangster

Veritas In case you have not been brought up to speed the War in Afghanistan is still going on and Obama is POTUS.. In fact more of our troops died today.. Anyone see the POTUS out paying his respects for it.. NOPE!!!! Not this ignoramus,. Obama has never been known to vote yes.. He always passes and he has never ever been known to apologize for the men and women he is killing in Afghanistan.. Like Hillary says they are dead so what difference dose it make.. Huh Centerfield?????

Veritas: "Opinions are news?"

OK, let's see if I can connect some dots for someone.

editorial (noun)

1. An article in a publication expressing the opinion of its editors or publishers.

2. A commentary on television or radio expressing the opinion of the station or network.

Elementary, Watson.

This one is free: if you don't like the opinion offered up, don't read it.

You know what else is free? Your right to opine on the MDN opposing any and all editorials.

Ain't it a beautiful thing?

You go, Ron. Well, with your medical disability, you are forgiven for your non-factual rants... Not really. First you make advances to me and then you start calling others sweetheart. I don't understand you fickle nature... You sure that you don't have some problems from the agent orange thingy...??

"NOPE!!!! Not this ignoramus,." Well, certainly this explanation of yourself needs no fact check. I am so glad you could finally admit what your really are. We already knew it but were waiting for you to finally admit it. Congrats.

Centerfield let me clue you in. My source is not MSNBC> In fact I turned them on this morning.. They were talking about the girls in Cincinnati..and the NAACP ..oblivious to whats going on in DC.

And now the IRS is going to control our medical and decide which "party" gets treatment and which one doesn't..

Truth hurts doesnt it libs????

I realize that dusty is just not all there, probably as an agent orange casualty. But, I think billwillnevereverevergetit must have some type of chemical imbalance that does not allow him to be factual in his blogs. Now, your factual basis is a movie that has been completely discredited except in far right wing circles. You are sooooo good. It is a good thing that the blogs never require you to post your sources and require fact checking before they are printed. There would be no more wingy dingys.

Centerfirld Varicosevein and willyWonke are all upset now that Obama has been forced into releasing "some" of the emails.. Wait till they force him to release them all. Wait till they get Hillary under oath and she either ends up lying or throwing Obama under the bus.

WHY did Obama LIE???? Why Did Obama LIE???? Why did Obama LIE???

Does he have a problem telling the truth.. Yellow belly comes to mind..

Right now it looks like Obama is at the end of the line on a Crack the Whip game..

So, they released the e-mails and I am not a happy camper. Why did I read the factual version and Dusty and billwillnevereverevergetit get to read the Fox News/Rush edition. White house was involved. How demented can you get, Billwillnevereverevergetit. Wasn't there. but the Repubs keep wasting time on it. Boy, are you guys scared of Hillary!! Say, where is the jobs bill? Have we got a farm bill yet and how is that sequester fix coming along. Know any senior citizens who are missing some meals? Oh, well, the Republican health plan is for them to die anyway. What a couple of losers you two are.

Veritas, I don't believe what the MDN says or what its various commenters say (that's us) will matter much in the national scheme of things, especially in things presidential.

But I think the MDN has a right to express its editorial opinion, just like you have a right to express your opinion, just like I have a right to express mine.

If you're looking for unvarnished truth from a media source nowadays, good hunting to you.

As far as that goes, why not look for those media sources of the past that published the unvarnished truth while you're at it.

A great time period would be the aftermath of the Civil War, with accounts from losers and winners.

Just which was telling the "truth" then?

After reading Public Policy Polling's "About Us" section on their website, I'm more firmly convinced than ever that a poll can be taken and/or interpreted however the poll taker (or even customer) pleases.

Pay close attention to the "Sampling" and "Weighting" paragraphs concerning demographics.

What do I think? More of the same...
