‘not the fake scandals i expected’

Paul Krugman: OK, Republicans have surprised me, at least so far. Based on the experience of the Clinton years — not to mention all that stuff about how the Obama administration is the “most corrupt in modern times” — I expected a proliferation of fake scandals over mowing the White House lawn, or Sharia law presidential hit squads led by the reanimated corpse of Vince Foster, or something. Maybe that’s still in the pipeline.

But what we have so far are complaints that the president plays too much golf and is too into basketball.

If that’s the best they can come up with …


So true! Seriously, if this is all the GOP have …. they’re in very deep poo poo.

    Thanks for the video of the CIC’s Libya remarks. He is so eloquent and reasoned, a true statesman. Let the newt harangue him for filling in the brackets or playing basketball or whatever … who cares … what word describes worse than pathetic?

    Fake sandals 😆 I agree Sue. A great picture. So nice to see our President in his down mode. He is a remarkable man.

    I’m sure they have some stuff ready to go when the time is right. They probably already have the schedule of roll out. Timed for max effect on the 2012 election.

      You’re probably right – they are slimy enough to be concocting some lies that will create enough noise to muddy the waters. We’ll need to be extra vigilant.
