To call the Obama administration “scandal-ridden” is like calling Michael Moore “full-figured.” Hands down, this is the most lawless, corrupt, and despicable administration to ever occupy the Oval Office. Whether it’s their Fast and Furious assault on the 2nd amendment, the Obamacare fiasco, the Benghazi debacle, the scandalous treatment of veterans by his Veterans’ administration, or the breathtaking behavior of his Internal Revenue Service, we’ve never seen anything like this administration’s contempt for the rule of law in this country’s history. Nor have we seen a president attempt to explain away his gangsta government by the lame repetition of the laughable script ““I had no idea! I am outraged! I am going to get to the bottom of this situation!” This tired act laid an egg the first time. After the twentieth or thirtieth performance, it’s beyond infuriating, especially when it’s followed by a trip to the nearest golf course or a White House press event with celebrities or winning sports teams.
Last month here on Clash Daily, searching for an explanation for the Obama Regime’s ridiculous response to the Scandal of the Day, I speculated that it might not be incompetence, or even the One’s radical leftist ideology. Rather, in fact, the whole thing might be an elaborate gag, a form of performance art. That’s one plausible explanation, but there’s another, one that must occur to any knowledgeable observer after the latest excuse from one of Obama’s agencies for its failure to comply with an oversight request from Congress. Perhaps Barack Obama and his apparatchiks are daring the Republicans to impeach him.
You no doubt know that on June 13, 2014, Obama’s IRS, currently under investigation by the House Oversight Committee, revealed that—Shazaam!!!—shall we say, misplaced, emails sent by Lois Lerner, director of the IRS’ Exempt Organizations Unit and the official at the heart of the scandal regarding the targeting of conservative groups, during a critical two-year period, because her hard drive “crashed,” and has likely been destroyed. In addition, there were six other IRS officials who suffered the same unfortunate hard drive “crashes.”
Now, in an unbelievable coincidence, on June 25, 2014, another federal agency can’t produce emails requested by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. From The Washington Examiner:
In a hearing Wednesday before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said the agency was still trying to recover the emails from a now-retired employee who was involved in a controversial EPA evaluation of a proposed mine project in Alaska’s Bristol Bay.
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., asked McCarthy: “Were all of his emails preserved according to the Federal Records Act or was a law violated?”
I think we have notified the appropriate authorities that we may have some emails that we cannot produce that we should have kept. I do not know yet whether we can recover all of these or not.” She added that later: “We are not sure where the failure came from and what it is attributed to.
Seriously? I’ve said for years that the Left needs to get new writers to refresh their tired ideology. In addition, they need to lose the “dog lost my homework” act by every Obama agency to try to cover up their deceit and contempt for the people and Constitution, and to try to goad the GOP into impeaching his sorry rear end.
