- The IRS has been targeting & harassing Conservative groups and individuals,
- The DOJ seized phone records from the Associated Press, with as yet no explanation,
- HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius has been shaking down companies and organizations for private donations in order to help implement Obamacare, …and courtesy of Allahpundit:
- The EPA has been granting Freedom Of Information Act fee waivers to left-wing groups (who are usually sympathetic to a more powerful EPA), but systematically denies such waivers for Conservative groups.
And that’s just the CURRENT ones.
I’m actually in scandal overload. In U.S. history, I personally can’t recall such an overwhelming display of blatant corruption and abuse of power since possibly Louisiana Governor Huey Long in the 1930s. By comparison, Watergate and Teapot Dome don’t even come close, in scale or breadth.
Taken in conjunction with Benghazi, the New Black Panthers’ voter intimidation case, the stonewalling over Fast-and-Furious, his administration’s attack on Religious Freedom with Obamacare’s contraception mandate, deliberately gearing the Sequester to impact the American People in the most painful ways possible, Homeland Security’s release of hundreds of illegal alien detainees, and…arrrggghhhh…..!!,
……..my brain hurts; make it stop!
Ultimately, all of this means that the very worst assumptions and fears that Conservatives have had for the past four years were not only true, they weren’t even close to being true enough. This administration has managed to set a new, inglorious precedent in modern politics: it’s a Scandal-rama, on steroids, … turned up to eleven.
And what of our Prevaricator-In-Chief? Speaking at a fundraiser the other night, Obama did take the opportunity to address the recent “difficulties” he’d experienced.
He blames (who else?) his political opposition:
“What’s blocking us right now is a sort of hyper-partisanship in Washington that I was, frankly, hoping to overcome in 2008”.
“…I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them.”
“As a consequence we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government,” he told donors. “My intentions over the next 3 ½ years are to govern. … If there are folks who are more interested in winning elections than they are thinking about the next generation, then I want to make sure there are consequences to that.”
Wait a sec: the Republicans’ unwillingness to go along with every whim of this rolling disaster is at fault here? Good grief, that’s basically like the wife-beater who maintains that “…if she just did what I told her, I wouldn’t NEED to hit her so much…”.
I can’t even make fun of this, because there’s nothing funny about it.
This man has, by his own hand, brought about the climate which exists in our nation: a climate of resentment, confusion, and of justifiable paranoia.
The American People twice voted in a smooth-talking fraud, a charlatan, and a Chicago-esque thug. They were taken in and lied to. They disregarded those of us on the Right, as we warned of the obvious dangers inherent with his election. But despite those warnings, they bought the ‘Hope’ hype, and we’re all reaping the fruits of their willful naïveté.
Oh, how I wish that this was just a movie at the local multiplex.
At least that way, we could all get up and demand our money back.
