If you ever want to see real thug-style politics, look no further than the current administration. From day one Mr. Obama has told us that lobbyists would not be welcomed in Washington D.C. and that cronyism would not be tolerated. But as I’ve said before, this White House has no real grasp of the English language with confusing language like; “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” or “I will not sign healthcare legislation that will add one dime to our deficit” or “I refuse… to let Detroit go bankrupt”?
Remember the election 2012. It was a very tight election. Things were not too solid for “El Presidente.” The IRS issue, Benghazi, and the economy not close to the 2% index needed to keep us at the misery level we were at. Unemployment numbers were not good but not that bad after being miraculously adjusted for the 38th month in a row. Remember coming into that election we had a 9/11 anniversary attack where 4 Americans were killed. (With the official account stating that locals were mad about a movie made in America against Mohammed and that sparked an event that only happened to be on 9/11.) Also remember, coming into that election the IRS incident happened because of 2 rogue agents in Ohio. Blah blah blah!
After “early voting,” “late registration,” and “night of voting” registration states reported the election outcome with many precincts having over 100% turnout. Yes, it’s true! Several states reporting the extraordinarily high voter turnout also reported that nearly 100% of those votes were for Mr. Obama! (Almost as miraculous as the real Immaculate Conception!)
As it goes, those on the Left did not cry foul, saying only that the people had spoken. Those on the Right said it’s blatant voter fraud. And the reality is, over the past 2 years they have been proving it was voter fraud precinct by precinct (to be covered in a future piece).
So with all the “work” it took to get elected, I am sure the president needed to payback a few of his workers.
Let’s start off with his latest appointment, the “Ebola Czar” Ron Klain. Mr. Klain has 30 years in the medical arena, having managed many hospitals and emergency disaster readiness programs across the country. (INSERT LOUD BUZZER SOUND HERE) Wrong! It’s what you might expect (and hope) to see on a person’s resume who is responsible for implementing the processes and procedures by which Ebola can be tracked in this country and around the globe. Track how and how easily it’s moving. Implement the procedures to contain it or even prevent it from spreading. How about working with the CDC and State Department to make sure we slow it down or maybe even stop it from entering this country again? You would think so. But, hey, as usual, El Presidente knows better.
Mr. Klain is a political hack. He worked as Chief of Staff for Joe Biden at one time and also worked for AL Gore. (Maybe Ebola is the result of climate change?) He, as is the case with most czars and appointees from this administration, has no real experience in the area he is to be assigned to. Not to worry! Mr. Klain will be reporting to none other than Susan Rice.
In appointing Mr. Klain, Obama will effectively bypass another official, Dr. Nicole Lurie, who has served as Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the Department of Health and Human Services since July 2009. She obviously didn’t contribute enough!
Let’s jump to his failed pick for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Debo Adegbile. This was the first time the Democrat-controlled senate refused to push through one of his choices, even they pushed back and said no way. And saying Adegbile is unqualified was an understatement.
