"What part of the presidency does Obama like? He doesn't like dealing with other politicians -- that means his own cabinet, that means members of the congress, either party. He doesn't particularly like the press.... He likes to write the speeches, likes to rewrite what Favreau and the others wrote for the first draft," Matthews said.Well, damn! When you've lost Matthews, your cheering section is gone. CNN is still carrying his water, but they actually seem to be aware that there's a scandal brewing.
Facing a trio of possible scandals that threaten to overwhelm his second term agenda, President Barack Obama on Thursday rejected calls for a special counsel to investigate Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups and declared he would fix any problems in government.The first thing you should do, Mr. President, is fire Eric Holder. Fire him publicly and humiliate him. Then fire Joe Biden for being a complete and total jackass. Appoint Sarah Palin as Vice President, and step down yourself in disgrace. That would go a long way toward curing the ills in this country. You're obviously incapable of executive control.
"My concern is making sure that if there is a problem in the government that we fix it," Obama told a Rose Garden news conference with visiting Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "That's my responsibility, and that's what we're going to do."
