In 2006, Senator Obama declared that he had “inhaled, that was the point.” In a moment of total unadulterated truth the now-president admitted to doing something illegal. But none the less he told the truth and admitted to it. Something, it seems, he has not been able to do for at least 5 years now.
The president said this past week in several “campaign-like” speeches that Washington has taken its eye off the ball. They are obsessed with phony scandals! Did he really say that? Phony scandals?
Now look, we can have two sides of the aisle. We can have different viewpoints on what went down. But you can’t have different facts on the same issue. I have to believe my friends on the left haven’t chugged so much Kool-Aid or inhaled so much of the funny weed, that they won’t admit the truth.
Which “phony scandal” is he referring to? Benghazi? The one where several military brass have been moved or shifted around and witnesses to the event aren’t allowed to speak? Where they have had over a year to produce reports on what took place and have received basically nothing?
Or is it the “phony scandal” involving the IRS where two rogue agents out of Cincinnati decided, “on their own,” to push back on a “few” conservative groups? Then, as the situation heats up, the two rogue agents come forward refusing to be thrown under the bus and divulge that the direction actually came from Washington. Wasn’t there a memo encouraging agents to be on the lookout for groups with names using words like “tea party”, “patriot”, or “9/12” that criticize how the country is being run? If that’s not a scandal then it must be just standard operating procedure for you Mr. President.
Or is it the “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal, an ATF program intended to track weapons bought in the U.S. and “walked” into Mexico? Unfortunately, the ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, some of which were used to kill a U.S. Border agent and God knows how many Mexican citizens. And again, this “phony scandal” was back in the news on July 5th when the Los Angeles Times reported that “A high-powered rifle from Fast and Furious was used to kill a Mexican police chief in the state of Jalisco earlier this year, according to internal Department of Justice records.” To stop further investigation of the program, Obama issued an executive order! Why? If it’s a phony scandal then nothing would be found Mr. President.
Or is it Obamacare? Is it a scandal when the president says, “Nothing will change for you and it won’t cost you one dime more or add one dime to the deficit” but there’s no shred of truth in it? The GAO now says it will cost the average family almost $2000 a year more in health care costs. Additionally, most companies report they will be canceling their insurance carrier’s policies and replacing with government policies, moving us closer to that single payer system the Democrats want so badly! And if you think it won’t add one dime to the deficit… really?
Then there are the not-so-well-known “phony scandals”, like the green energy mess. This administration has made billions in green energy loans and grants, only to watch the money and jobs go overseas. For example: The manufacturer (owned by a Chinese company) that was given over $360 million to open a plant in the U.S. to make the battery for the Chevy Volt closed down without producing one battery for use. Why? Partly due to regulations and partly because it was simply cheaper to produce and import from overseas.
No one with an IQ above a single digit can say that there is not some semblance of truth in each of these “phony scandals”. This president and his staff have spit in the eye of our founding fathers, disregarding many of the truths that made this a great nation, all the while sweeping the truth under the rug and attempting to convince the American public that what they are doing is what’s best for all of us.
Mr. President, it’s time to exhale, allow the fog to lift, and get this country back on track to being the strongest nation in the world. Richard Nixon crimes were “penny larceny” compared to the theft you have perpetrated on this country.
Oh, and once, just once, I would love to hear you say that you love this country and are proud of its accomplishments around the globe.
From a very, very, very concerned citizen.
