Watergate eventually became the story of two young rookie reporters who exposed and took down a President. Try to think of another major story in your lifetime wherein the reporters themselves took center stage and, in the process, nearly eclipsed their own work.
Ready or not, Lauryn Hill of Fugees fame has found herself sentenced to three months in a cage for extortion evasion. The extortionists call it “tax evasion,” but calling it by another name doesn’t change what it really is.
I’m often asked by conservative friends how I continue to laugh at the increasingly Orwellian sideshow presented by President Barack Obama and his accomplices. Most of them expect the old “laugh or you’ll cry” saw, which isn’t entirely inappropriate.
One after the other, the scandals break and President Barack Obama feigns ignorance. He didn’t know. He didn’t know. He didn’t know. He didn’t know. Brilliant guy, or so they say. Yet when it comes time to own up the responsibilities of the Presidency, he’s strangely absent… or absentminded. In a word, he’s obtuse.
Whatever your party ideology is, whatever the ideals — left or right — you profess as critical to the understanding of how America’s ongoing experiment in free Constitutional Republicanism will continually emerge successful, you have to hew to what you believe.
President Barack Obama and his Democratic accomplices have spun themselves sick trying to stay ahead of the scandal they created in Benghazi, Libya. The talking points proffered by the fringe leftists who have taken over the Federal government have swerved from the ridiculous to the insultingly stupid.
Every so often, a Presidential Administration is plagued by a report that reveals unconscionable crookedness, depravity or incompetence. And those reports, given the nature of the country’s political system, usually come as no surprise to the American everyman.
It requires a condescending disdain to complete a circle of logic that presumes a lemming-like, groupthink mentality as a defining characteristic of all the members of an amorphous and diverse ethnic population. But that’s exactly what President Barack Obama is hoping to do by assuming that Texas Hispanics are ready for the yoke of entitlement.
It’s clear the Administration of President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were either incompetent in their handling of Benghazi or they made a conscious effort to let four Americans die. It’s equally clear their initial story was a bald-faced lie, and they knew it was a lie as they told it.
President Barack Obama’s supporters have shrugged off myriad scandals and lies. Either Americans can live with that, or we can’t. If the former is true, then we deserve no better than Obama. If the latter is true, the elections in 2014 and 2016 will likely be our last chance to do something about it.
