“It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till he transforms us into beasts.” — Patrick Henry
It doesn’t matter whether it’s the IRS targeting the Tea Party or the Department of Justice spying on reporters. The claim from Barack Obama is always the same. Why, he heard about it on the news same as you! And he’s mad as hell, same as you! See? He’s just a regular guy. And so it is again, we’re told, with the emerging scandal at the Veterans Administration.
Two problems, however: 1. He is not just a regular guy. He’s the president, and these people work for him. If this sort of thing keeps happening on his watch and he just hears about it on the news like the rest of us, then someone needs to get a little basic instruction in executive management. 2. Why would anyone believe him when he says he didn’t know about it? It’s an all-too-self-serving story, made all the more so by the fact that his chief of staff tells harrying tales of incurring “scars” while briefing the president, and oh by the way, you know Obama is pouring lots of money into the VA, right?
For Obama, the objective of governing is never to govern well. It’s simply not to be blamed when governing proves the inevitable failure you get with inept leadership … (CFP)
Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media and the political establishment to protect Barack Obama, they can no longer hide the incompetence and criminality of the most divisive and sordid administration in American history.
Former National Security Council Spokesman Tommy “dude, this was like two years ago” Vietor is the poster boy of the Obama Administration; a collection of inexperienced, emotionally immature ideologues, whose “the ends justify the means” mentality permits them to tell any lie, violate any law and indifferently sacrifice lives as long as it serves their political objectives.
This bungling and scandal-prone gaggle of amoral nitwits, led by a talking teleprompter, survives only because the extent of their dishonesty is matched by that of the political-media establishment and the public’s inexplicable willingness to tolerate it… (Accuracy In Media)
