In President Barack Obama, we have an immaculate and anointed president that just keeps on giving. Let me show you the ways:
1. He reappointed Susan Rice as security adviser. The same Susan Rice who left the State Department in disgrace after she lied about the terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed four American patriots. She lied five times on five different Sunday morning talk shows. This was a deceitful cover-up that lasted for weeks with Obama's knowledge.
2. The IRS — in accordance with direct instructions from Democrats — engaged in the most egregious, surreptitious and widespread attack against conservatives and patriots in U.S. history. This included knowledge by top agency officials and, most likely, President Obama.
3. Obama's own Justice Department with weasel Eric Holder at the helm, on top of their own first term scandals — spied on, wire-tapped and harassed journalists at Fox News and ABC News. This — in itself — has now truly criminalized journalism.
4. Obama's own Justice Department has presided over the disastrous "Fast & Furious" operation wherein 2,000 firearms were directed from U.S. gun shops to Mexican drug cartels, which resulted in death of as many as 100 people, including one of our own Border Patrol agents.
5. Obama has usurped the authority of Congress many times. An executive order in June, 2012, declared that illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. before they turned 16 and who were younger than 30 would not be deported. This essentially duplicated his DREAM Act which had already failed in the Congress.
And we attempted to impeach President Richard Nixon for breaking into a political hack's file cabinet?
