There has been a lot of commentary about the scandals enveloping the Obama White House. At the risk of repetition, here are a few more thoughts.
No, strike that. This needs to be repeated, from every possible outlet, until the American people realize the seriousness of what is going on. The chain of scandals relating to the Benghazi cover up, IRS targeting of conservatives, and Department of Justice intrusion into Associated Press journalists’ phone records represent a chilling pattern of behavior by our government. And, that behavior emanates from the tone set at the top.
I am not talking about the increasingly unserious partisanship between Democrats and Republicans. Not only are people sick of it, the pettiness of Washington is becoming a dangerous tranquilizer. President Obama’s flacks (including many in the media) are furiously spinning their own shocking actions into a mere partisan witch hunt by desperate Republicans. Move on, nothing to see here, just the usual Washington noise.
