    Perhaps, but these are Obama's people, or his peoples people and it is his game right now.

    Disturbing to me is the refusal by Justice to enforce the law. Without our laws what do we have left?

    I think there is enough blame to go around to all concerned. If enough republicans hated the TSA enough to actually do something - they could, even if it would only be symbolic. They control the House, they could draft a resolution against the TSA, and they could get it passed. Have they done so? Nope.

    As for them being Obama's people - the power that Napolitano and Pistole currently have has escalated over time. Gropes began back in 2004, but were shelved because of the outrage. Now a lot of people just go 'meh' and move on. Every time someone goes 'meh', the TSA/DHS try to grab more power.

    As for Justice not enforcing the law -- I think they think they are -- administrative law. Obviously I don't agree with them, but I see how they got there.

    Somehow we have to elect enough people in Congress to repeal the law that created the TSA - and the support has to be by a wide enough margin to override any presidential veto either by Obama or by Romney.

    The appointments by Obama & Nappy have nothing to do with 9/11.

    The Bush administration appointed cronies to run these departments. The Obama administration seems to have added moral turpitude as a job requirement.

    Holder fits right in -- has something to do with glass houses, throwing stones & fast 'n furious. He'd sic his dogs on you or me before we could blink an eye, but won't touch his peers or their chums.

    Just reported on Fox News. Nappy may step down due to the latest issues in DHS.

    Her replacement better not be another lewd, fascist POS.

    If she does step down I find it difficult to understand why all the criminal activity in multiple DHS agencies wasn't enough but accusations of a senior female employee who is accused of sexual issues is enough to bring her down.

    Criminals are ok, but BJ's are career enders?


    edited for clarity.

    Was mentioned on Fox News this morning by the early morning guys, think it was Gretchen. Also caught a glance of the scroll at the bottom of the screen and "I thought" I saw mention of this. I don't have tv access now to keep an eye out. No interweb links make mention other than a consideration to step down.

    Bottom line, I have no verifiable source but will be watching for breaking news.

    I've been wondering how secure her position was for quite a while. It seemed to me that all her junkets outside of the U.S. were at least partially an attempt to keep her from inciting rage in her detractors here in the U.S.

    I think even the tone deaf Obama administration knows Nappy's in trouble. I'm pretty sure she knows. She's a career politician whose career in politics is almost certainly over.

    If not now certainly after Obama is done.

    Obama should be done, but I don't think he is. Romney was chosen by some powerful people who are used to getting what they want. He's not the people's choice and it really shows. The presidency is for sale, but not as cheaply as Romney's backers hoped. They GOP establishment lied and cheated to get Romney this far. Now they've got to get him through the national convention and the elections. Good luck with that.

    I really, truly think the election is almost in Obama's pocket. Given how bad Obama is, that should not be. Republicans have screwed up big time. Given that both major parties are run by narcissistic A-holes, the Repulbican leadership probably won't change course until it's too late.

    My comment left open the possibility that Obama could be around for some time to come.

    Yep.

    I think it might be for the best.

    Congress needs to do its job. Obama has run wild because Congress has been derilict.

    The Republican Party needs to reclaim its legitimate voice and stop pandering to elites. That, or we need a much stronger third party. Obama's re-election should serve as a wake up call.

    Obama remaining in office should force sanity on the rest of the Federal Government. We can survive the insanity of the Obama administration just fine, if only the rest of the government will become healthy.

    A weakened presidency might emerge from Obama's 2nd term. If the Judicial Branch and Legislative Branch asserted themselves to curb Obama's excesses, the presidence could be set for future presidents to toe the line. I think that would be good.

    Sure, I'd love for Obama to be replaced by a decent president, but that's not likely. Since that's not gonna happen, the next best thing would be for our nation to adjust the role of the POTUS so that a (expletive deleted) in the White House couldn't do much harm.

    I don't agree that Obama staying in office would be for the best, far from it. But it is a possibility.

    Obama is anti-americam, anti-freedom, and seems to believe that we must have government provide for our every need.

    I can never accept that position.
