    Above, another cynic made a good point, and it's something you and your rec'ers will have to face, and it's a delicious conundrum for your crowd:
    If you want prosecutions, then you must re-elect the President.  For only if you re-elect the President, will this task force continue its work.  If you sit on your hands, or vote for some Nader/Paul or whmoever, and therefore Romney gets elected, then this task force will be killed.

    So if you want prosecutions you have to re-elect the President.  How you like THEM apples?

      as well. Because if the prosecutions get stepped up, then you might have to concede that holding Obama's feet to the fire might have some merit.

        You're about making Loud Noises. He doesn't listen to anyone who's going to attack him and make Loud Noises no matter what he does.

        That you're continuing to throw darts at him, smoke bombs at the WH, and waving Obama is a Nazi signs in Harlem kind of proves our point.
