I sometimes agree with Mr. Weigle but this is not one of them.

What's up with the claim Obama had sealed court documents opened?

Nonsense.

Not familiar with Obama "somehow" obtaining sealed records of his election opponents? It is the reason he became a senator. Look up Blair Hull and Jack Ryan. The Chicago Tribune, David Axelrod's previous employer, got the sealed divorce records of these two opponents and gave them to Obama's campaign. And that's how he became senator in 2004. If not for the illegal actions of the Tribune, Obama would not be president.

That cover it, Premier?

I believe they were both about nasty divorce cases which, of course, his opponents wanted sealed. Somehow his connections were able to "convince" the judges to unseal them and then BHO used the info to discredit his opponents. I believe the Senate run was against the current Senator Bobby Rush.

When I heard about this "Behavior Insights Team" (Nudge Squad), my first thought was doesn't the majority of main stream media already provide this service for the administration??? Unfortunately, a lot of low-information voters are already past the nudging point.

"Did you notice how Chief Justice John Roberts surprised everyone by voting for the A.C.A.? Or how Rep. Michelle Bachman decided not to run again?" From what I have learned, Roberts' rationale for supporting the constitutionality of ACA is considered by many who support the administration as a Trojan Horse. Regarding Bachman, I think her political injuries were all self-inflicted. She has done those whose ideas she represented a favor by bowing out of the political arena. If I were Obama, I would like nothing better than to have folks like Bachman or Palin carry the banner of my opponents.

"I think MORE people were concerned-about what-it-was George Bush was attempting to hide." -Shaman

Shaman, once again you left out pesky little facts. Obama signed Executive Order 13489 on his first day in office regarding presidential information and the use of executive privilege:

"Sec. 3. Claim of Executive Privilege by Incumbent President. (a) Upon receipt of a notice of intent to disclose Presidential records, the Attorney General (directly or through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel) and the Counsel to the President shall review as they deem appropriate the records covered by the notice and consult with each other, the Archivist, and such other executive agencies as they deem appropriate concerning whether invocation of executive privilege is justified."

In 2004 BHO won his senate seat over Alan Keyes, who stepped in at the last minute after Jack Ryan, the Republican primary winner, dropped out after the revelation of his divorce records. Blair Hull was BHO's opponent in the primary and was leading BHO in the polls when his divorce records were leaked, forcing him out of the race and handing the Dem nomination to Obama.

All political office seekers have skeletons in their closets. It would be nice if the media focused on those that belong to Democrat candidates with the same zeal that they exert when covering Republicans.

His small conspiracy theory, he really meant conspiracy theories. This jerk gets wackier with every letter and it appears that Vince subscribes to the same conspiracy publications as well.

Bachmann is facing serious ethics charges as well as serious challenges to her seat in Congress. Who knows maybe she was offered a better paying job once she leaves Congress. Plus the men of the Tea party have been overshadowing her, like Cruz and Paul.

Skeletons in the closet only happens to the republicans what a bias statement from the right. All the right wing likes to expand about is all the skeletons rattling in Democrat's closets. It is the wolf crying wolf.

Roberts voted for the ACA, so what! "They must have dirt on him!" You clowns really do need to get out from under your rocks. Maybe the right wing elites did not pay him enough for his vote as they did with the other Justices. Conservatives are truly gullible and this letter proves it.

Even Bill Daly allegedly told friends he left the Obama administration because it was all politics and no leadership.

Fast and Furious started on Bush's watch. So, the burden for that lays on the shoulders of both presidents. Also, some research turned up that there were 13 embassy bombings similar to Benghazi that happened under Bush II. Benghazi is unique in that the gov. tried to cover it up for a few days because it was Sept. 11. The administration that preaches transparency ought to live by it.

Nooooo.... I was simply stating that one is no better than the other. But you failed to mention that your chosen one signed a similar order, making it appear Bush had something to hide. Obviously going by your warped sense of deduction, Obama has something to hide too. Looks much different when you include the whole story huh?

Well if what Vince said is correct {I haven't had time to verify it} I can't believe I haven't heard of this anywhere else than right here. I consider myself up on the news and listing to a lot of talk radio so this must of slipped by somehow.

Oh Sham before you copy and paste, I don't listen to Rush...and never have.
