Twenty questions for liberals about the Obama administration

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Democrat Representative Elijah Cummings, minority leader to Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, seemed to be uber critical of the IRS scandals permeating the news of any fair-minded media (Fox). Even the MSM gave it some preliminary coverage, although lately a wind storm seems to be their major lead. Oh well, it is summer and hot air will reign—no pun intended.

Now Elijah, seemingly getting the message stated, "Based on everything I've seen, the (IRS) case is solved. And if it were up to me I'd wrap this case up and move onů" Nothing to see here kids. NOW BACK THE F AWAY FROM DC IN GENERAL AND OBAMA IN PARTICULAR!! Ever the pol, Cummings reversed once again and said the case wasn't closed.

I'm dizzy. How about you?

Instead of pleading with liberals to please pay attention to the collapse of our nation, I'd like to do a little litmus test on where they stand on these scandal flashes and how they feel about the Obama Administration now. So here goes:

1. If the War on Terror is over, as President Obama asserts, who won?

2. Have the terrorists signed an armistice and made peace with us and our allies?

3. Is it legitimate for one man, the President, to decide who lives and who dies by sending drones to blow them up?

4. Is it okay to kill US citizens overseas or in the US without due process?

5. Is Hillary right when she asserted before Congress, "WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT DOES IT MAKE!?" after a Benghazi cover-up?

6. Is Ed Snowden a traitor or hero?

7. If you were President Obama, would you demand Eric Holder's resignation?

8. Do you agree with the NY Times that Obama has lost all credibility?

9. Is it okay for the government to store all your emails, medical information and phone calls if there's no reason to suspect you of being involved in any crime?

10. Knowing what we know now about recent IRS discrimination against people for their political beliefs, should they be in charge of implementing Obamacare?

11. Do you believe in the First (free speech) and Fourth (right to privacy) Amendments?

12. Do you think we should change the Constitution to accommodate these actions by the Obama Administration?

13. Obamacare will cost $20,000 for a family of four. Should Congress be exempt?

14. Does it bother you that most of what was promised by Obama and Democrats in Congress about Obamacare isn't true?

15. Should there be a Special Prosecutor appointed to investigate for crimes committed? If so, who should appoint one?

16. Knowing what you know now, would you vote for Obama or those who are liable to behave like Obama?

17. Are we in a police state?

18. Well-known liberals are now criticizing Obama, like Al Gore, Bob Beckel, Kirsten Powers. Do you agree with them?

19. The ACLU just filed a lawsuit claiming that the NSA has violated the First and Fourth Amendments by collecting and storing our communications. Do you agree?

20. Finally, what would be your reaction if Bush was caught up in the same scandals?

Some conservatives and many Liberals will ask why I even bother. Let's just say I'm a sucker for things that should be that aren't yet. If anything should inspire us, think of Janet Murnaghan and her dying ten-year-old daughter, Sarah. Without a scintilla of help from Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen "Some Live and Some Die" Sebelius, Janet got a Judge to okay a transfer of adult lungs to her dying CF daughter. So far, so good, one day after the transplants.

All I have to do is convince a few liberals that the overwhelming evidence shows that Obama is bad for the country, rich or poor, and hope for a change in power in upcoming elections.

Anyway, I've never seen the advantages of giving up.
