Obama Suffering From ScandalitisPosted by J Craig on May 18, 2013
Barack Obama and his administration have faced harsh criticism this past week, but for good measure. They have showed their constant commitment to deceive the American people on many occasions. The administration is dealing with three different scandals that are simply not going away. Many on the left were even upset over the IRS scandal, but some still claim that none of these three are scandals at all. What? Really? Rachel Maddow of MSNBC stated, “All together the three “Nixonian” scandals are a giant nothing.” She ends one of her blog pieces with “Put a fork in the Benghazi story; it’s done.” Here is what she said on her show Wednesday night:
“The controversy surrounding Benghazi effectively “went away” yesterday, and given the latest information, it’s hard to imagine how any serious person could disagree.”
Well Ms. Maddow, it is very hard to imagine how any sane person agrees and continues to watch your show, but I guess it happens from time to time. Anyway, the liberal media continues to protect the President on all fronts. Sure they were upset at the DOJ going after the AP’s phone records initially, but they are back in the corner of Obama where they’ve always been. Still surprising that none of them ran up to hold his umbrella for him as he got rained on. Oh well, lucky for him he called upon the Marines to do this job. I mean he didn’t make the call in Benghazi, so he thought he’d make it up for it finally.
Let us dive into these scandals for a bit. We have the Benghazi story that was starting to come to light once again with the testimonials from the three whistleblowers. We have the Department of Justice over stepping their boundaries and obtaining the phone records of the Associated Press and then we have the IRS targeting conservative and Tea Party organizations. All of these were done prior to election time. This doesn’t surprise anyone as being a little strange? Seriously? You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see the Obama Administration was doing all they could do to get re-elected, including deceiving and breaking the law. This is downright ridiculous. This was a violation of privacy, 1st Amendment rights and an overreach from our government. This shouldn’t be about party lines or political affiliations for people to see through this mess. The Obama Administration was covering up, lying, and abusing their power for political gain without a care in the world who was hurt in the process.
These three scandals just show the arrogance of power from Barack Obama and his manipulating ways of holding onto his most treasured prize, the Main Stream Media. They simply cannot get enough of this guy. They have wanted to bury Benghazi for eight months and done a decent job of doing so, but combined with the other two scandals; they are proving to be difficult to continue. It is amazing that they continue to fail to grasp the concept of Obama’s policies and what was going on in Benghazi and the Middle East. He wanted to help transform this area. His policies speak for themselves. He wanted to support the Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia and the entire Middle East, allowing them the opportunity for a revolution. The problem with this is that liberals and the media cannot see this. This was just one of the three major scandals. If it wasn’t a scandal or a cover-up, then why lie about it and change the talking points 12 times?
This brings us to the next one, which was the Department of Justice obtaining the phone records of the Associated Press. The Justice Department had secretly reviewed phone records of reporters and editors at the AP, apparently to find out who leaked information about a terrorism investigation. The AP had a story they were about to release in May 2012 about a foiled effort by Islamist militants in Yemen to try another underwear bomb, like the one a militant botched in 2009. This story was asked to be put on hold by the CIA because it would hurt President Obama and his foreign policy.
We then have the IRS scandal where they were going after conservative and Tea Party organizations. These groups were in the process of obtaining a tax exempt status as many organizations like this have, but because they had the words, “Tea Party” or “Patriot” on their applications, they were audited and put on hold. This was going on since 2011. This is a huge story because of what the Obama Administration knew and when they knew it. Many of us know how powerful the IRS is, but after this more people are fed up with the overreach and abuse of their power. To target and essentially attack groups that opposed Barack Obama is against the law. These groups were basically put onto an enemies list, although the brilliant and coherent Tamara Holder would certainly disagree:
There seems to be something missing in the reporting of these scandals though, which is why the IRS all of a sudden apologized. If you know anything about the IRS, it is that they simply do not come clean or apologize. Ever. Not without attempting to blame someone or something else first. This is again, just a little strange. The Benghazi story was finally getting covered by the MSM and then what do you know the IRS comes out and apologizes. After doing something and keeping it under wraps for two years? Then, Obama attempts to show he cares by accepting the resignation of IRS Commissioner Steven Miller when the guy’s term was up in 30 days anyway. America isn’t stupid Mr. President.
These are not adding up and the liberal media does not like it. We must fully understand why these were done and when they were done and we must grasp the implications of each one. Remove your blinders and step away from the Kool-Aid for a brief moment. Smell what Obama has been cooking and see if you truly enjoy the flavor. Do you really believe a President who says he finds out about these scandals in the same manner the rest of us do? Many of us were born at night, but definitely not last night. You can only stay on a sinking ship for so long when you finally have to pull a Rose and Jack. The S.S. Obama still has rescue rafts aboard, but their warning signals are on and people are finally starting to listen. This isn’t over. These are far from over. We will wait and see if history happens to repeat itself, but at least Richard Nixon had the dignity to resign. Then again, that happened back in 1900 and what difference, at this point, does it make?
