Flip on any major news media outlet or log onto Twitter and you will see the effects of the Obama Administration’s scandals and current state that our great nation has been reduced to. We are being (mis)led by a government that operates like a mix of the Chicago mafia and Nazi Germany; and a supposed president who hides behind a self-made blindfold.
Is Obama so removed from reality and egocentric that he didn’t think he and his cronies wouldn’t get caught? You can lie through your teeth and shed forced tears, but you cannot fake true emotion or genuineness. It is evident through Mr. Obama’s obvious lack of outrage that he is merely going through the motions, avoiding responsibility, or course of action.
I don’t know which is worse, not being aware of this illegal behavior by government agencies, which is what Obama is claiming, or lying about it, which is what Obama is actually doing. By hiding behind Jay Carney and his absolute lack of intelligence and his inability to create full sentences, Obama really hasn’t had to answer to anyone. We are not talking about tragedies or incidents that were mishandled; we’re talking blatant infringement of our Constitutional rights – intentional altering of official documents after four Americans were killed in cold blood by Islamic terrorists. This administration isn’t running or handling anything; they’re targeting, bullying, and intimidating those who disagree with them, turning America into a state of tyranny.
The Benghazi scandal and the four Americans who died as a result of it is no exception to this administration’s utter incompetence. The Government Accountability Institute reported last year that Obama attended approximately half of his daily intelligence meetings since assuming office in 2009. If Obama doesn’t bother to attend his daily intelligence briefings, how can we expect him to be thoroughly informed on foreign matters and effectively handle a crisis like Benghazi?
The Benghazi debacle could not have possibly been rooted in incompetence, absence, or refusal to defend our citizens against Islamic jihadis, it had to be the result of a Republican “sideshow”, as Obama recently claimed. The circus ringleader is playing golf, hosting White House concerts, and schmoozing with Jay-Z while the low-level officials are running the country into the ground. It’s government run amuck.
Last week we heard Jay Carney (or Man-Boy, as I like to call him) claim that the White House counsel was the only party aware of the IRS investigation back in April. On May 20th, Man-Boy claimed that Obama’s Chief of Staff, Dennis McDonough, along with other White House officials, were also aware of the IRS investigation. Not only were they aware of the scandal, but McDonough and those same officials chose not to inform Obama, according to the New York Post.
We’ve now just learned from various media outlets that in addition to the White House counsel and officials being aware of the investigation, they actually met with the IRS on how to present the information found to the public. My how the truth keeps changing. And to top it all off, Man-Boy has the audacity to come out and say, “That’s what any White House should do. The cardinal rule here is you do not intervene in an independent investigation … particularly when the final conclusions have not been released.”
