Says a member of the regime that gave us Obamacare in secret.

#2 No, we had one before. This one's the tidy up.

#3 “There was never any [Benghazi] order to stand down,” he said on Thursday. “On the contrary, the whole effort was to do everything possible to try to save lives.”

#4 A functional Presidency would have the whole lot of them in jail?

#5 In front of a firing squad, grom. A functional government would have the Obama and Clinton cliques in front of a firing squad.

#6 Yes, and we have a dysfunctional and corrupt political class, which is how you got Trump.

At the rate you are going, you will corrupt and dysfunctional your way into prison or worse once we get fully sick of your shit.

#7 Lets see:

Friday the President went to Florida to announce Obama's pandering to Communist Cuba has been disfunctionalated.

Last week Mr President and Mr Vice President had numerous meetings with Latin American leaders opening up opportunities for US companies to help modernize Central and South American countries.

Today Mr President had another one of those meetimgs with a Latin American leader. The rest of the day was round tables and luncheons with major US tech company leaders on stream lining and over hauling the Federal Government with the latest technologies to make fovernment smaller and more efficient.

I do believe we have a very busy 5 star CEO in the Oval Office Mr Piniota.

#10 #9 Ditto. Congress lives in the past. Trump is moving along at warp speed and they peddle their tricycles. Congress really is retro. They have not kept up with the technology of the times. I understand some government agency's still have floppy disks.

#11 "dysfunctional" - definition: He ain't one of us.

#12 The actual quote (As opposed to Breitbart's usual contextually challenged headline.) reads;

"I think to some extent we have a dysfunctional presidency as well at this moment in time."

When read in full the statement doesn't sound all that unreasonable. And some may argue it's an acurate assessment.

#13 I don't know what world Panetta is in but yesterday's meeting of the Tech Part of AMERICA INC. with the Trumps is the most effective I have ever seen any US president in my life!

A functional path to remove 1 Trillion $ off inefficiency from government is pretty big! They chance that it might generate 2 Trillion of increase in the economy too is pretty damn big!

#14 Completely dissagree with both Panetta and the Home Depot guys usual anti-Trump spital.

#15 Not "anti-Trump". Just Anti-misleading headlines for gullible consumers. But thanks for the renforcement of my point.

#16 When read in full the statement doesn't sound all that unreasonable.

When a Deep State fuckhead say something like that with words like 'to some extent' and 'moment in time' attached to either side of it, you may discard those words.

And some may argue it's an acurate assessment.

Who? Who are these "some" and what are their arguments?

#17 Yes, we have a dysfunctional Congress who is for "we the people" only until elected. Then it's all about keeping the $$ , the perqs and the power at the expense of "we the people". Now, OTH, we have Trump who has had tons of $$, power and perqs before and probably fewer now. Who, I ask you, would seem to have better intentions and be non-dysfunctional?

#18 "you may discard those words"

The wilful omission of rhetorical qualifiers (paticularly in a headline) reveals the editors agenda to intentionally mislead. Pannetta expresses uncertainty in both degree and duration. The edited headline subtlety insinuates declaritive certainty.

"...and what are their arguments?"

One example of dysfunction would be the conflicting information regarding health care legislation between the President and his staff.

#19  I understand some government agency's still have floppy disks.

The old 5.25" disks or did they upgrade to the newer 3.5" 1.44 MB disks?

#20 Raj. In the tech meeting the 8" ones were mentioned.
I haven't seen any since about 1982.

#21 With the 8" comment are they still using old Corvus Concepts or IBM punch to floppy machines?

#23 But are those 8" double sided / dual density? Those 1 meg disks were the cats pajamas back in '79.

#25 One of those situations where all the storage options for the machine added together don't equal a small portion of the storage in your camera or i-phone.

#26 If you hire staff that agrees with everything you say you are a piss poor executive and you are throwing money away on people you don't need. Dumb as a door knob knuckle draggers who have no business trying to look smart by spewing ignorance need to stick to selling door knobs at home depot.

#28 "If you hire a staff that agrees with everything you say..."

Providing conflicting information has nothing to do with public displays of agreement. Try to keep up here junior.

#30 Home depot. Ypur ignorance is stunning. Have you even watched Trumps show Apprentice????? Not only must you have a stsff that gives the top executive diverse views on complex topics, those views MUST BE PUBLIC domain for a follow-up public RFI n each of those views so the Executive can make the most effective final decision possible, junior.
