i was reading a link on Drudge that Axlerod excuses the President for any responsibility in any of these scandals because the "the government is just to big"....my thoughts exactly (except for the "not his fault" part). Government is too big to keep abuses in check...apparent abuses of the Hatch Act by EPA and IRS, apparent abuse of privacy rights of AP reporters..http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/201...The Obama administration is doing a far better job making the case for conservatism than Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, or John Boehner ever did. Showing is always better than telling, and when the government overreaches in so many ways it gives support to the conservative argument about the inherently rapacious nature of government. we cans start by prosecuting each of the employees (clerk and supervisors, up the food chain) for violations of the Hatch Act who touched these cases, or released private information to political groups....and never allow them government employment again.we can form a sunshine commission to cull through each agency's mission, and demand a stricter adherence to that mission, closing any programs or subdivisions not conforming to the mission, and cull programs proven not to be affective.we can demand our Congressmen ask hard questions about what priorities are funded and which must close to pay for what we must have and do, so that we may continue to care for the truly needful, meet our constitutional obligations, and allow the private sector to prosper and strengthen the economy and create opportunities for the next great wave of invention and resourcefulness.in reality, all we can really expect is another round of investigations (artfully crafted to result in no answers), a few scape goats, and no real justice....(historical DC procedure, regardless of party or pov).and we will still be waiting on real answers to Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Green Cronyism, etc...
