    Jon Gabriel, Ed.: With so many White House scandals—and new ones popping up every day

    Indeed. 3 more popped up as I am writing this post.

    I think the most scandalous one, of course, was Michelle’s celebration of Nowruz. We should impeach Michelle!

    Doesn’t matter how many brackets – the GOP will do nothing to him! Total mental masturbation.

    The fact that 80% of these “scandals” are invented fantasy, might also have something to do with it.

    The GOP knows the story about the boy who cried wolf? Right?

    Jon,

    The scandals are all quite real. The Obama administration is crying wolf. The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, Rush Limbaugh, The Neo-Cons, and most of all Buuussssshhhhh!!!

    We live in a deconstructionist nihilist intellectual environment that can’t quite wrap its head around the reality of fact. At some point we may wake up and realize that if we rationalize away one more egregious breach of the Constitution then we will not have a Constitutional Republic to live in anymore. America will die not with a bang but a whimper.

    I have no idea which scandal or when the breaking point would be. If and when about 15 Democratic Senators are ready to rid themselves of the emperor in the White House then we will see.

    Till then it is a hall of mirrors.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Shouldn’t one on the O-care side be ‘Justice Roberts calls penalty a tax’? I think that qualifies as 5 fouls, and he’s out!

    I keep telling people it isn’t about bringing down the president. I try to explain that more important issues are at stake.

    I guess I was wrong and the Democrats were right.

    You forgot to say “wake up sheeple!” Without that, how am I supposed to grasp the urgency and seriousness of all this?

    Besides, America died like, 6 months ago. When Ebola killed us all, thanks to Obama allowing all of Liberia to infiltrate from our Southern border. True story.

    Thank God AIG is here. Thought for a minute somebody might have some fun.

    Jon, put down those childish things. Now is the time we mope. And we will eat our peas, because Obama told us to, and Who are we to argue? And when we are done, we will put on our nightclothes and ascend the stairs to sleep in the dark, unworried by the darkness, for we have mastered the art of slowly wetting the bed all night long, that we may lie silently in the warmth of Obama’s permanent golden shower.

    No laughing.

    It’s a serious matter BDB. You think it’s laughing matter that the WH celebrated Nowruz? I think it’s the equivalent of surrender to the I-ranis.

    Our country is going down the drain! Wake up sheeple! (there, that’s how you do it Jim! Now everyone knows it’s serious business)

    As I said, I find nothing funny in Obama’s surrender to Iran by celebrating Nowruz.

    I want him impeached for it! I want his family impeached for it! I want his dog impeached for it! I want to walk over there and impeach him myself!

    That is, if Ebola doesn’t get me first.

    Very clever Jon, also very funny. Now do you think our scandal team can take on Putin or the Argentinians? They seem to take dirty tricks way beyond the con man tactics of what we have.
