The brewing scandal involving the federal government’s Veterans Administration is an culmination of so many different stories, not the least of which is the depiction of someone who is currently occupying the office of the President of the United States being totally incompetent. But for matters having to do with the reformulation of this nation into one being socially divided, economically destitute, or in which expands the federal government’s role into the lives of the American people, Mr. Obama is on point and takes no prisoners.
Just as with other scandals of this Administration such as, the IRS targeting groups and American citizens of the conservative political persuasion, Obamacare not allowing citizens to keep their doctors as he [Obama] personally repeatedly stated otherwise, the covert operation of transferring guns to Mexico [Operation Fast and Furious], the sacking of the U.S Consulate in Libya, and the subsequent killing of the Ambassador and 4 service personnel and then blaming an American citizen and his You Tube movie, and the downing of the military helicopter carrying members of SEAL Team 6 in Afghanistan, who’s credited with the capture of Osama Bin Laden, etc, Mr. O has perfected the playbook of Plausible Deniability.
Obama’s impersonation of Hogan Hero’s Sgt. Schultz, “I know nothing, I know nothing, I know absolutely nothing”, has no rival in recent time of anyone who has occupied the Office. His patented formula is first to deny ever knowing of the occurrence. Second, empathize with the American people. Third, say that he is going to get the bottom of the situation/seek a fall guy. And then get the Establishment Media to take the issue off the front pages and minimize the issue as quickly as possible. Classic! All the while his guards and surrogates are taking and deflecting the arrows, he escapes the fallout, seemingly unscathed. And to too many he’s the hero or the victim, never the instigator or creator of the disturbance or crisis.
If this was your 6 year old being questioned about who ate the last cookie from the cookie jar this may be humorous. But this is the man in the seat of the Presidency of the United States who has made an art form of being conveniently dumb on matters of the most importance to the American people; and of which matters the leader of the Executive Branch and Armed Forces should have full knowledge of. If for all of these critical moments of this Administration Mr. Obama has to go find out what happened, after it has happened, from someone else, maybe we should get that someone to sit in the seat. For evidently this position is too much for Mr. Obama. Or is it that there are some aspects of this position that just doesn’t interest him? He was famous for largely voting “present” during his very, very, very, brief time as legislator.
I can not think of any other position in the country in the private sector that such a production of incompetence and unaccountability of a CEO or department head would be so tolerated. But seemingly many citizens of the United States and of America are more concerned with whom the Lakers are going to draft or who’s on “The Price Is Right” than the fact the President is a liar. Because of each of the events mentioned, after claiming that he [Obama] had no knowledge of the issue in question, it was later revealed that he did have full knowledge. Usually with little or no fanfare or deep interest from the Media.
What’s most disturbingly interesting aspect is that Mr. O was slow to comment on any of these issues, but he could not speak quickly enough on the matter of a court case involving a single black youth shooting death, Treyvon Martin, whose accuser was later cleared, in Fla., or when an obscure basketball player announced he was gay, and he seems to have no trouble finding time to appear on ESPN to announce his Final 4 NCAA Basketball Brackets selection. Additionally, we all know that he is the biggest champion for illegal immigrants flooding into the nation. But for the nation’s military veterans and other relatively important national issues, such as the unsustainable government debt, the unprecedented number of Americans not working, and how the nation’s lowering standard of living being a consequence of Obamacare, he dives into obfuscation, word manipulation, and blatant dishonesty.
In a recent poll most Americans honestly believe that Mr. Obama lies to us on important issues and many of us do not trust either the Congress nor the Establishment Media – those who are supposed to inform us when the government goes astray. Folks, this ain’t good for the future of our nation!
What is most astonishing is not that Mr. Obama and his Administration repeatedly and unabashedly lies to us, the citizens of America and of the United States, but that we allow it to do so with impunity. This is the same guy who got re-elected by a majority of the voting citizenry for his final term. Therefore he is unrestrained with concerns of being re-elected. The government is a reflection of us as a nation. How far are we as a supposed nation of free individuals continue to remain so when so many take no responsibility to be eternally vigilant of the government, that we have granted so much power and authority, and hold it to the highest expectation of ethics and accountability, and therefore takes no responsibility or accountability for ourselves?
The disgraceful scandal that is on stage in the nation’s capital that now so vividly shows how it can bring tragic harm and affliction to those who we claim to cherish and praise so much for giving so much of themselves to keep those who dare threatens our freedoms from outside [the military veterans]. Imagine how it [the government] will treat us, those who have surrendered so much of our supposed cherished freedoms? We have chosen the government that we have. May god have mercy on us.
