So Veritas and ragiihammr, are the same, same. Get a real job. Quit being on the computer 24/7 under different names. How many other names do you go by?

Well, Veritas, why don't you create a few jobs, stick your neck out. Provide Health Care for everyone on your payroll, Workers Comp., and everything under the sun. And let us view a few more video's of the IRS spending that money. Under Obama's watch.

Yes, Veritas, I also read that this activity has been happening for 7 years now. Is anyone, Dem or Rep, really thrilled about this?
Perhaps we could do as JackAaah suggests and come together to agree that this NSA activity, specifically the collection of all American Verizon customers' phone records, is not something that should happen regularly in a free society.
If the NSA thingy started under Pres. Bush, why isn't Pres. Obama doing the "right thing" and stopping it? Especially now that the public knows all, through a British newspaper article?
If all anyone can do now is blame Pres. Bush for this, and not do anything about it, this administration is proving itself far more feckless and inept than the previous one could have been.
Do you ever get your data straight or is this what Rush told you yesterday.... Obama nominated three Republicans to his original cabinet and one of them chickened out after the other Republicans got after him. It is better to not serve the country than to anger the Party. Now, he has another Republican in the Sec. of Defense chair. That makes three "Cabinet" appointments on board as well as other nominees for lower positions. Oh, and your boy Shulman was not a Cabinet appointee... Bush I had none. Clinton had one. Reagan had none. So much for another irrelevant post from you...

May the Democrat party, as represented by President Obama, AG Eric Holder et al, wither and die on the vine.

centerish, the deflect-o-rama rays haven't quite the effect as they used to. Better charge those batteries.
This "in your face" appointment says volumes about Pres. Obama. That was a transparent move.
Where are the bipartisan appointments? At least Pres. Bush appointed Shulman to his post at the IRS. Pres. Bush got some sort of credit for that, if only to be blamed instead of Shulman himself for what has allegedly happened recently.
Today I read about Verizon's megadata records being collected by the National Security Agency.
"By law, NSA's intelligence gathering is limited to foreign communications, although domestic incidents such as the NSA warrantless surveillance controversy have occurred."

I would certainly have to give the right wing Republicans credit for transparency in one major area. They have publicly stated that their main objective is to block any initiatives put forth by Obama no matter the effects on the country. The do-nothing House is a prime example. They have blocked any and all bills coming from the Democrats and have included riders to every bill they send to the Senate that they know are objectionable and won't be passed. What we need is a 38 or 39th bill to repeal obamacare. History is being written and not by right wing rags. The Republican party is splitting and on the decline because of the right wing hatred and arrogance. Our country should be first but the right winger Republicans are only out for their personal gain.

Yes, President Obama can choose whomever he wishes for the post of National Security Advisor.
Curious: why was the UN ambassador sent to the Sunday news shows with talking points about a video, when some recent stories say differently than what vietnamvet69 posted about the CIA?
What I'd really like is more truth and less talking points, if that's going to be possible in present-day DC politics. Shall we call that "transparency?"
So she is considered a liar because the CIA provided her with the talking points on Benghazi, which were later proven wrong, and now everybody wants to say that she is the wrong choice??!! The POTUS does not need Congressional approval for this appointment, but maybe in the next administration we can change the rules so that ALL appointees must be approved by both houses of Congress. That should slow up the progress of taking care of this country even more that the Republicans have slowed everything down now!!

animal, agreed. Only hyperpartisans believe everything is OK and smelling like rosewater.
And if the current allegations (don't you just love the word, willgrr) happened during any Republican administration, the liberals would be up in arms 24/7 until the Republican so-and-so's were hung out to dry.
Were charges similar to these leveled against former Pres. Bush while he was in office? I didn't agree with all he did, but his administration seemed, shall we say, a little more transparent in comparison.
James Carville termed the Susan Rice appointment as an "in your face" thingy. That's not a lie.
