LOS ANGELES, June 4, 2013 — The Obama administration is drowning in corruption scandals. This has Democrats are panicking about 2014.
Despite transparency promises from President Obama, many legitimate questions remain unanswered. Inquiries have been met with executive privilege claims and Fifth Amendment invocations. IRS and Justice Department abuses have even some liberal media members paying attention. Topping this is Benghazi, where four Americans were left to be murdered by radical Islamists. Our government let them die.
The initial approach to several scandals was to delay past the 2012 election. The IRS and AP scandals only came to light after the election. The post-election goal was to declare the scandals old news. This is difficult when they are fresh. Also, the Obama administration picked the few types of scandals that hold short attention spans.
Most people dislike the IRS. The media will ignore ordinary citizens being left to die, but will not tolerate behavior questioning the media themselves. Like scorned lovers, they are lashing out against Obama for betraying them and making them look like lovestruck enablers excusing everything Obama says and does. Ironically, it took a president accused of lying about accusing the media of lying to perhaps expose the truth about them all.
The walls are closing in, and the Obama administration is resorting to the same bullying and intimidation tactics, which got them in trouble in the beginning. Liberal lapdogs have their marching orders.Tthe new talking point is “GOP overreach.”
The same discredited institutions are confusing their personal agendas with reality. The National Journal became the National Disgrace Journal when it conned Republicans into allowing uber-leftist and racial grievance-monger Beth Reinhardt to “moderate a GOP debate. This week her colleagues offered their typical headlines.

Will GOP Blow Chance at Senate in 2014? - Reid Wilson, National Journal
Doyle McManus never met a conservative he could stomach. He is again trying to get Republicans to throw real conservatives under the bus.

While RealClearPolitics plays it down the middle with content aggregation, it has opinion columnists. Caitlin Huey-Burns is obsessed with “social injustice” and “being the catalyst for social change.” Draw your own conclusions as to her politics.
Could Republicans’ Focus on Scandals Backfire? - Caitlin Huey-Burns, RCP
These four columnists all wrote the same narrative on the same day. As Emmy-winning media watchdog Bernard Goldberg intones, the issue is not collusion, just “groupthink.”
Liberals define GOP overreach as anything that attempts to advance conservatism or stall liberalism. They are aided by the New York Times wing of the Republican Party, which consists of David Brooks, George Will, and Jon Huntsman, Jr.
Republicans receive their suicide orders, and like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football, they repeatedly obey them in the hopes of finally being liked by people who despise them and take glee in their failures.
Remember those “moderate” Republicans who represented the “sane” wing of the GOP? Once Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney faced off against true liberals, these men were tarred as “right-wing extremists.”
Whenever conservatives get near the truth, scorched earth leftist tactics get more brutal. Judge Ken Starr, a man above reproach, was successfully demonized. The late Congressman Henry Hyde went from being one of the most respected public servants to a man flayed for having a 1961 affair.
Now leftists are coming for Congressman Darrell Issa for some mythical concept of overreach. Issa’s newest sin, apart from breathing while conservative, is referring to White House spokesman Jay Carney as a “paid liar.” After all, Republicans should sugarcoat their language with weasel words such as “misled,” “not forthcoming,” “less than forthright,” and “not completely truthful.”
Liberals displayed bumper stickers saying “Bush lied, people died,” while unable to name the actual lie because it never existed. For once in their lives, Republicans must fight back.
President Obama, Jay Carney, Hillary Clinton, Lois Lerner, and Eric Holder are all liars. With enough time and space, all of their actual lies can be documented.
In return for accurately labeling Carney, Obama consigliere David Plouffe brought up Issa’s past to send a message. The alleged incidents occurred over four decades ago, and all charges were dropped.
The allegations against Obama administration officials are true. The purpose of investigations is to get to the truth. Refusing to answer questions shrouds the truth.
This worked in 2012 with Benghazi. Romney was so scared of being labeled as mean, that he backed down. Liberals threw punches, Republicans backed down. Liberals grew more emboldened and threw more punches, and conservatives remained demoralized.
This cycle must stop. Republicans are holding four aces. Democrats are trying to bluff with a pair of fours.
Obama’s agenda is crashing. Walls around him are crumbling under various ethics violations. The left is in this mess because the decision makers were miserable human beings who may finally get what they deserve.
Good human beings do not declare war on half the country. They do not use the IRS to try to rig an election by intimidating conservatives merely trying to participate in the democratic process.
Good human beings do not spy on reporters and go shopping for one liberal activist judge willing to conflate a conservative journalist with a terrorist subversive.
Good human beings do not leave American diplomats and Navy SEALs to die because it conflicts with a political narrative of victory against terrorism.
Those actions are all examples of overreach. So are cynical liberal media attempts to bury the truth. Those trying to get to the truth would do so quicker if unrepentant liars would just tell it. Extended efforts to get the truth is not overreach. Trying to subvert the truth is.
Even liberals putting ideology over country should grasp this. Then again, that would be an actual reach. If they did they would not be liberals putting ideology over country.
