Enjoy the corruption, you can taste it, smells like government — Mr. TakeDown
As Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski has written, prosecutorial misconduct has become “an epidemic.” And evidence has come to light that our president, the nation’s chief law enforcement official, seeks his counsel from the worst.
If ever a picture was worth a thousand words, it is a recently released White House photo of President Obama and his muses—if one only knew the truth behind those muses whispering in the President’s ear as they strategized in the aftermath of the Benghazi tragedy. To understand the (politely-put) “lack of transparency” from the White House, the enormous politicization of the Department of Justice, the release of Taliban leaders from Guantanamo, refusal to cooperate with congressional investigations, the IRS’s harassment of political opponents, and the cover-up of Benghazi, read on.

Enjoy your partisan free, fair and helpful government — Mr. TakeDown
GEORGE F. WILL: The Face of IRS Behavior
What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent.
Hers, however, is an eloquent silence.
The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status.

You know, this could have been a lot worse. So… up-twinkles, I guess. Only losing $10.5 billion on a payoff to special interests (in this case, labor unions) qualifies as a roaring success by current Washington standards. And, sadly, I don’t just mean Obama standards. Fox Business brings us the happy news that the “G” in GM no longer stands for “Government”:
A vote for incumbent president Barack Obama in November is a vote against the United States Constitution. Furthermore, it is a vote for one’s own enslavement.
No American president has demonstrated such contempt for the Constitution, the concept of separation of powers, and the American spirit in as small an amount of time as Obama. His transgressions and insults are legion:
He has initiated an unprecedented expansion of executive and regulatory power to grant waivers from the law to individuals and groups for political purposes, financial gain, or both.
He has enacted rules governing pieces of legislation that are incomprehensible, leading to increased power to those in power through their interpretation of those rules.
He has overseen a deadly criminal gun-walking operation to foreign gangsters, in defiance of the law and placing our national security at risk.
His attorney general, in connection with that scheme, is officially in contempt of Congress.
He has attempted to nationalize one-sixth of the American economy in defiance of the Constitution and the principles of the free market.
