Being the first president isn't enough, apparently...

...to keep Obama from being, seriously, an "embarrassment to his race." It started when someone posted this, and I had to peel away the LIES:




First one is hugely exaggerated: http://wweonomist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2013/05/spying-associated-press

The second one is silly for right-wing people to birch about at all since they live this kind of shit, but it does pre-date him and liberal sources hardly act as an Obama apologist for it:

The supposed IRS targeting is actually an undirected bunch of processes which used a variety of search criteria, but nobody is focusing on anything except that which they want to think targets the right wing groups (which tried to get exemption even though they wanted to donate and direct politics.)

And all of this is done in a time when they really want to distract people from the news of economic progress. Scandal scandal scandal... when the real scandal is how a congress can spend so much time doing NOTHING but blocking the things the American people really need most.
