Benghazi, IRS and the AP phone records search are all ongoing issues that could be considered major scandals, depending to whom you talk.
Let’s talk about Benghazi.
The attack in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, resulted in the death of four Americans, including the ambassador. When four Americans are murdered by terrorists, there should be no politics involved.
But in my opinion, since it happened during the election campaign, someone in the Obama campaign, or the president himself, decided to ensure that this incident did not impede his re-election. And now some Democrats are attempting to blame the failure to protect our personnel in Libya on Republicans’ cutting spending on security. So which party is playing politics?
Now eight months later, we still do not know exactly who did what or who changed what.
The IRS issue is definitely a scandal. If you listen to the testimony of the outgoing commissioner Steven Miller, you get the impression he is either a liar, incompetent or both. His answers to the congressional committee were arrogant and often vague, with answers such as “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember,” “I do not have the names.”
And you need to remember the IRS is going to be the enforcing agent for the new health care law. You will need to provide medical information on your tax forms next year. And your doctor will need to provide medical information to the IRS. What’s to prevent private medical information being used by some bureaucrat when determining health care issues?
The AP phone records seizure should concern all Americans. How much more power does the federal government grab before we realize that the Constitution is being trampled on?
So, three ongoing scandals have engulfed the Obama administration. My faith in the American government is next to zero.
So who is at fault? Someone in the State Department, IRS or White House is to blame. There are people in the White House, Executive Branch and IRS who are arrogant and out of touch with Americans. More people need to be fired. And the buck should stop at the White House, regardless of how much President Obama knew.
