In an administration that has been remarkably free of sleeze, the current three scandals embroiling Obama didn't have to happen and are a measure of bureaucratic stupidity:
1) IRS going after conservatives
2) AG's Office getting phone taps on 500 AP reporters
3) Benghazi (primarily motivated to be a preemptive strike against Billary in 2016 by conservatives)
If you want to add Obama's lack of resolve in backing moderates fighting el-Assad in Syria starting at least a year ago and now revving up to be a major problem with the probable use of chemical weapons it would be a fair criticism.
Barak Obama has been a good and noble president and he has been defeated by perverse rules in the Senate requiring a super-majority to get anything done. It is a shame that he will piss away the rest of his administration dealing with these issues when there are so many more important things to be done.
Hey, if you back the guy majorly like me then you have to admit when there are problems.
That's the motto of every Leaf fan. I nearly fkn cried. I'm still in shock I think. For a team that dominated the better half of that series that was a epic collapse and a brutal way to lose. I'd rather they lost 8-0. Anyways.....it's over. I'll take the positives out of that series and hope for the best next season My wife and son are big Penguins fans so I think i'll jump on board with them. But really....I don't give a shit anymore.
Holly shit what a comeback, I didn't think they were going to take it. When i saw them pull tuukka with 2 minuutes left i thought why bother. Tell you honestly i thought the Leafs pretty much dominated the game, it took that extra man advantage to get the last two to tie it up. Now on to the next round against the Rangers.
Sorry PonchoBill there is allways next season.
i hate to love the leafs.
Up 4-1 in the last 10 mins of game 7 and they blow it. OT is about to start....back later.
So true. I never gave the Leafs much of a chance to win this series. Now that the Leafs are down to Bruins 3 to 1 in games i"d say they are pretty much screwed. The leafs will learn from this. Hockey is a game of cycles and i'm certain they will be a powerhouse team in a couple of years......It's been a long fkn time.
And he defeats Steven Colbert's sister, who was the democrat running against him. This is the guy who ran away to Argentina to cheat on his wife when he was governor of that state, without telling anybody!
There is no intelligent life (that votes) left in South Carolina. Of course, they still are fighting the civil war.
Though I'm trying hard to not comment on the news, I just couldn't let this one pass.
About the violence in hockey and football and to a lesser extent baseball. Bunch of overpaid bitches if you ask me. Except for most of the Canadian brawlers in hockey. It just seems they like continuing a tradition of throwing a few half-hearted punches to preserve their honor, at best. The bench-clearing brawls are the worst.
Nice to see you around again, Noonie.
"I went to see a fight and a hockey game broke out." :)
Even for the fans
testosterone + (beer) + losing/winning = predictable
I've been to two St. Louis Cards baseball games and both times there have been fans in full-blown fist fights, usually around the 5th inning, just after enough time and beer. Always guys too. Never saw the women being stupid. It is pathetic behavior, indeed. Government approved, all-american family fun :)
I realize not all Bruins fans are like that. it just makes me sick that something like that happened. After all it's not like we beat the Bruins all the time is it? (Not that it would be an excuse). As for that idiot who held up a TorontoStrong sign at Game #3 at the ACC well....that was absolutely classless also. I think the playoffs bring out the best and worst in everybody. GO LEAFS GO!!!!!
