Obama playbook – when in doubt say it is all phony scandals
As the old saying goes, “the truth will out,” and in the case of the multiple scandals that have been dogging the Obama Administration practically from the beginning, it appears those sage words are starting to blow up in the talking heads’ faces. Those voices include individuals in the media that have chosen to be little more than Obama’s private collection of sycophants, and of course, the members of the administration that have been tap-dancing furiously around the facts in front of Congress and the public. The latest issue has been the outrageous claim by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, that all the current “problems,” particularly Benghazi, are “phony scandals.” Of course that was met with severe push-back by conservative politicians and media, expressing severe disapproval of even the concept of relegating the deaths of four American embassy personnel to the realm of “phony” anything.
It is coming up on 11 months since the attack in Libya, and the hearings are still being convened to get to the bottom of the issue. There is still one survivor of the attack in the hospital, recovering from his injuries. The rumors about the administration forcing survivors in general to remain silent about what they witnessed that night have been running around the Hill and the nation for weeks. Because the truth has been denied, the inevitable result is that the truth is sneaking its way out. As for the Obama Administration, it can’t be pleasing to them that it has come from none other than CNN – which Fox News had no problem pointing out. As for the ones that remain loyal to the president, and keep pushing his propaganda? Well, look no further than Variety to see the fate for that tactic – even the experts in the entertainment industry are admitting that being the mouthpiece for the administration isn’t a good formula for a news station that would like to have even just decent ratings.
So, all this means is that it makes sense to keep pushing for the truth. If you’re looking for a quick way to point out to the masses that the scandals really aren’t phony – and at least enumerate them quickly with pretty pictures for those that are a bit dense – there’s a short video for that:
