    I've not witnessed this kind of media behavior ever before in my lifetime. It IS scary....because they are supposed to be the mouthpiece for "the people." They are supposed to hold our leaders accountable by asking the tough questions and not letting it go until they get the answers. While I'm sure there are those who would do it.....they are NOT allowed in the press conferences and certainly not called on by the president if they are. This president.....despite that he promised transparency.....has been anything BUT that. And the press seems afraid of him.

    And don't forget the passing of Obamacare. Not only did the press not seem to care that this administration was demanding this mammoth piece of legislation be passed WITHOUT knowing what was in it.......they did their part to help Obama by continually demonizing the Tea Party who were out there in townhall meetings saying, "we don't want it."

    Two things are going on. First, the reason the press fears this WH is because they witnessed what Obama attempted to do 3-4 years ago to FOX for asking tough questions. Second, the press corps is dominated by admittedly liberal story tellers who are basically nothing more than elitist vying for kudos from their fellow travelers. The current press corps is basically nothing more than a group of friends who all agree with each other's political leaning and craft their narratives accordingly. It's disgraceful. In essence, we don't really have a press corps, we have a group of progressive liberal elites pretending to be objective journalist but, by choice, aren't. Even worse, they're proud of it.

    Oh, I haven't forgot. Now their using the same tactics dealing with the NRA who have now been duly labeled by Chuck S. as an extremist fringe group. The issue is now being sufficiently demagogued & the attack dogs are in full attack mode to assure no reasonable debate will take place that could possibly slow down Obama's race to dismantle the 2nd & disarm American citizens.

    And what is sick is the people voted him in to do the same thing again. They know he lies and cheats, but they want even more of it from him.

    The promise of government cheese supersedes morality, ethics, cognitive dissonance and shame.

    Of means and ends.

    This does seem to be a gangster govt.

    But if we give it a chance, it will only execute itself, if that's the case. If this govt. is actually the blessing that America has needed, that will show itself too.

    Just vote and wait.

    America is an idea. It won't die.

    Bush initiated this program. Not that Obama's part is any less criminal, if we are going to have a look, let's look at all the evidence
