No doubt it will be a best seller for the blacklisters; just like the tabloids are for the scandalmongers - "Enquiring minds want to know".

For one, the democratic party (if that who you were alluding to) is not my party, secondly I'm not going to boo-hoo over one family's lost considering the only reason that you and your "ilk" are only concerned because of political reasons not because you actually care about how they feel. Where was your outrage when your buddy bush decided to make up crap about Iraq so that he and his buddies could make obscene amounts of money on the backs of our military?

Were you concerned when reagen's "war on drugs" not only was responsible for the actual spread of cocaine but the deaths of thousands and the destruction of millions of lives?

So spare me of your fake "concern" over the death of a man doing his job! Why are'nt you blaming his supervisor for sending him on that particuliar job? Why not the director in that state?

My budy Bush?.... KMFA!!!! I was against the war in Iraq and came out against it in public.... Strange, I didn't see you there. Fake outrage? I have a family member who is assigned there as a border agent. Why dont I blame his supervisor or the director? Neither of them provided guns to the cartel!!! Your lack of giving a crap is sickening. Yeah, he was doing his job. A job that was made more dangerous by this administration and cost him his life. You sit there talking about seeing crack babies, and wounded veterans. You have never actually walked a mile in their shoes, or in the shoes of anyone who has been in combat, but you know all about it... Please. You don't know crap about any of it.. You just enjoy hearing yourself rant and thinking yourself somehow morally superior. Give me a break. You don't give a damn about anyone other than your sacred leader. Go ahead and justify the actions of this administration in your mind. You can't do it in reality, but your mind isn't based in reality.

All we need is an itinerary and it is done.
Reid hides in his basement office for days on end.
What is he hiding from.

The following is FactCheck.org’s count of Obama administration positions whose holders were
dubbed “czars” in one or more news articles. In some cases, the same “czar” nickname (e.g.
“cybersecurity czar”) was applied to more than one job title. In these cases we have counted the
two separate positions as two “czars.” In some cases, we could find no use of the term “czar”
for the position except in news articles about the preponderance of czars in the Obama
administration. We did not count these cases. Senate-confirmed positions are marked with a star.
Non-president-appointed positions are marked with a dagger
1. Afghanistan-Pakistan Czar (Special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan) –
Richard Holbrooke
2. AIDS Czar (Director, Office of National AIDS Policy) – Jeffrey Crowley
3. Auto Recovery Czar (Director of recovery for auto communities and workers) – Ed Montgomery
4. †Border Czar (Special representative for border affairs, Department of Homeland
Security) – Alan Bersin
5. *California Water Czar (Deputy interior secretary) – David Hayes
6. Car Czar (Advisor for the U.S. auto sector, United States Treasury) – Steven Rattner
7. †Climate Czar (Special envoy for climate change, Department of State) – Todd Stern
8. Counterterrorism Czar/Homeland Security Czar (Assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism) – John Brennan
9. Diversity Czar (Chief Diversity Officer, Federal Communications Commission) – Mark
Lloyd
10. †Domestic Violence Czar (Advisor to the president and the vice president on domestic violence and sexual assault issues) – Lynn Rosenthal
11. *Drug Czar (Director, Office of National Drug Control Policy) – R. Gil Kerlikowske
12. Economics Czar (Director, National Economic Council) – Lawrence Summers
13. Energy Czar (Director, White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy) –
Carol Browner
14. *Government Performance Czar (Chief performance officer) – Jeffrey Zients
15. †Great Lakes Czar (Special advisor overseeing the Great Lakes project, Environmental Protection Agency) – Cameron Davis
16. Green Jobs Czar (Special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation, White House
Council on Environmental Quality) – Van Jones
17. †Guantanamo Closure Czar (Special envoy to oversee the closure of Guantanamo Bay
detention center, Department of State) – Daniel Fried
18. Health Czar (Director, White House Office of Health Reform) – Nancy-Ann DeParle 19. *Intelligence Czar (Director of national intelligence) – Dennis Blair
20. Iran Czar (Special advisor for the Persian Gulf and Southwest Asia) – Dennis Ross
21. Manufacturing Czar (Senior Counselor for Manufacturing Policy) – Ron Bloom
22. Mideast Czar (Special envoy for Middle East peace) – George Mitchell
23. Pay Czar (Special master for TARP executive compensation) – Kenneth Feinberg
24. *Regulatory Czar (Administrator, White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs) – Cass Sunstein
25. *Science Czar (Director, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy) – John
Holdren
26. Stimulus Accountability Czar (Chairman, Recovery Act Transparency and
Accountability Board) – Earl Devaney
27. *TARP Czar (Assistant secretary for financial stability, Treasury Department) – Herb Allison
28. *Technology Czar/Infotech Czar (Chief information officer) – Vivek Kundra
29. Technology Czar (Chief technology officer) – Aneesh Chopra
30. Urban Affairs Czar (Director of Urban Affairs) – Adolfo Carrion
31. *Weapons Czar (Undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics, Department of Defense) – Ashton Carter
32. Weapons of Mass Destruction Czar (White House coordinator for weapons of mass destruction, proliferation and terrorism) – Gary Samore

You want to discuss appointments, or impeachment?
I asked for a list of Obama czars that REQUIRED BUT DID NOT GET SENATE APPROVAL. Do you have that list or do you not? There's a whole ****load in this list here of czars that DID NOT REQUIRE SENATE APPROVAL

Of course you did'nt I was in the freaking sandbox! Thanks for the reminder

Yeah, ok right

Btw, I 'm not defending Obama I'm defending intelligent thinking. If you can be so adamant about one flawed operation that in reality was concieved by bush and ADOPTED by Obama and ignore the bigger events that occur everyday that has far reaching affects on a society as a whole.

I should have mentioned this before, but would you still feel the same if this program was started under bush? Obama is (as far as I'm concerned) is guilty of: letting the program continue and not (like bush) standing up to the NRA and not appointing a full-time director to the ATF
ATF gunwalking scandal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ATF Online - About ATF - Executive Staff

I think this information might also help you:

Do I think this will ever happen? No. America is brain dead and is blind to any of the illegal actions of Obama. I would not be surprised he ran for a third term and won.
He is a vile scoundrel who deserves impeachment on a multitude of fronts.

ok again harry reid has absolutely NO SAY in whether or not obama is impeached. impeachment happens in the house of representatives, and harry reid runs the senate. and if the house does in fact impeach obama, the senate is duty bound to hold a trial. it is there where conviction or acquittal happens, not impeachment.

try taking a civics class once.

Can't happen soon enough. Impeachment proceedings will drive the stake through the Republican party's heart.

If you thought the 1998 tom foolery was bad from the damage it did to the Republicans and their leaders, try it again and see what happens this time.

It’s not a question yet being asked or debated in the Big Media. But it is a question being addressed by some members of Congress, by an increasing number of pundits by activists on the left and the right – and for more than one or two alleged constitutional offenses.

Some of those who have broached the subject include Reps. Trent Franks, R-Ariz.; Walter Jones, R-N.C.; Trey Radel, R-Fla.; Steve Stockman; former Rep. Ron Paul , R-Texas; former Rep. Dennis Kucinich , D-Ohio; Fox News’ Mike Huckabee; former assistant U.S. attorney Andrew McCarthy; left-leaning investigative reporter Dave Lindorff; talk-radio host Mark Levin; former House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich; author and columnist Pat Buchanan and others.

Article II, Section 4, of the U.S. Constitution states, “The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Ah, yes. Whirled nutz daily.
Get over your poutrage, he's the duly elected president of the US.
If the lovely Mr. Bush wasn't impeached, Obama will not be.
