Once again Barack Obama has taken his oratorical show on the road to divert attention from the chaos and confusion surrounding his ineptitude as a leader. According to Obama, the scandals are all a figment of our imagination. They were created by mean-spirited, blood-sucking, partisan Republicans who want nothing more than to dethrone the king.
In a pair of speeches on Wednesday designed to sell his economic program to voters, Obama railed the opposition party and detractors for wasting so much time on meaningless charges that are interfering with the vital work he is doing to restore the economy.
The president claims the scandals are “phony,” but tell that to the families of the Americans who lost their lives in
Obama wants to get down to work for the American people but there are just too many barriers in his way.
The reality is that the president has been getting “down to work” for nearly five years by talking about what he is going to do instead of actually doing anything.
How does the American public know the scandals in
The oratory was familiar. There was nothing new. It was the same old, same old with the key emphasis on the idea that the Commander in Chief is working tirelessly to solve the country’s problems while congress wants to focus on scandal.
The American public know the scandals are real when the president employs diversionary tactics through speeches geared to change the subject. Major policy decisions at unusual or irrelevant times are a strong indication that scandal is creeping a little too close for comfort at the White House..
The scandals are real when top administration officials plead the fifth amendment. They are real when people with inside information are intimidated into keeping their mouths shut. Something smells when the Department of Justice calls for internal investigations of their own misconduct with the idea of making Americans believe they are dedicated to seeking solutions.
As Barack Obama would say, “Because it’s the right thing to do.”
Right for Mr. Obama, perhaps, but wrong for the country. What was that again? Oh yes, it is the scandals that are phony and not the administration.
As Obama’s “chickens are coming home to roost” with his healthcare monstrosity, for which the president devoted the first full year of his presidency, his glaring inadequacies as a leader, both domestic and foreign, grow exponentially by the day.
The truly sad reality of the situation is that genuine criticism of the president’s lack of leadership cannot be openly challenged without charges of racism entering the debate. And so the smorgasbord of indecision, confusion, uncertainty and, like it or not, scandal will continue for at least three more years.
