“The parallel between Benghazi and the IRS story is amazing. (It’s) lying about lying, then lying about the fact that they are lying. Then seeking to apologize for lies that they claim they didn’t tell. This pattern is a culture of big government who believes that it is more important than the American people.”
I doubt if Obama had any inkling of what 2013 might bring to his table after his easy re-election in 2012. He even started off the New Year with a bang by beating the Republicans into an embarrassing cave in on tax hikes for the fiscal cliff.
Wow! How rosy it looked for the guy who brings new meaning to “superego.” At his State of the Union speech, he proposed a “left wing dream factory” according to columnist Charles Krauthammer with a declaration of war on global warming (even though temperatures are the same as 16 years ago and CO2 emissions are at a 20 year low).
House Rep Jason Chaffetz is talking of
possible impeachment proceedings.
Also on the list was universal pre-school for 5 year olds in a country already drowning in debt. He also felt confident in the Democrats re-gaining the House in 2014.
Gosh, this being the President isn’t hard after all; except that it is, especially when you are, as Edward Klein called Obama in his book, The Amateur.
When confronted by the lack of his intimidation on sequester by Republicans, he panicked like a schoolyard brat with silliness like airline delays and the cancellation of White House tours. Looking foolish, he eventually caved in.
Need we discuss his embarrassment over the loss of his gun control bill? Sure, why not? I wonder how much gas he burned up at our expense to fly all over hell posing with grieving relatives of those slain by guns. He lost 60-40 in a Senate that had 55 seats belonging to his own party.
Want more? How about the Benghazi hearings? The IRS/Tea Party scandal? The AP wire tapping by Obama’s buddy Holder (“Who, me? Yes, you!”), and the latest: HHS Secretary Sibelius trying to illegally get funds to prop up Obamacare. Hell, as long as we are airing out this guy, how about a SECOND court ruling against his illegal appointment of members to the National Labor Relations Board while the Senate was off? It’s like endlessly listening to Sonny and Cher sing “And the beat goes on.”
The Republicans have a great opportunity here if they just don’t blow it. In the 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Humphrey Bogart (as Fred C. Dobbs) and Tim Holt (as Curtin) have been stiffed ontheir wages by their boss McCormick as played by Barton Mac Lane.
When they see McCormick walking down the street dressed in a nice new suit with a young senorita, Dobbs says “Let’s get him….and get him HARD!”
That’s exactly what Republicans need to do. Get Obama and get him hard. I may add that they need to do it soon. These types of opportunities have a way of disappearing if not quickly acted upon!
