Over the past few months, I have been reticent to discuss the big “I” word when discussing the Obama administration–Impeach. Impeaching a president is serious and should be the last resort–done only for ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ Too many people are discussing impeachment without even waiting until the facts come out. It may come about that Congress needs to look at this very issue. They may even need to call for a Special Prosecutor to find the truth behind all of the President’s scandals. Right now, the White House is up to their necks as one crisis follows another. Finally the mainstream news media outlets are beginning their role of watchdogs for America instead of being Obama’s lapdogs. The media’s problem is that they were lied to by the President, Hillary Clinton, Jay Carney and the rest. The liberals newies have no problem with cover-ups, they engage in cover-ups all the time. Lies, they are a different story, especially when you lie to the media. And they don’t like being lied to.
The fact that Barack Obama is an amateur is on display for all to see. As one crisis comes up, the President fails to deal with it and then another pops up. It is not dealt with either. Now the White House has hunkered down. So lets look at all these problems.
Fast and Furious—the Justice Dept sold guns to Mexican cartels without keeping track of them. Dumb move. Mexicans and Americans alike died because of these weapons.
Benghazi—after repeated warnings from Libya about lax security and begging for more, the US Ambassador and three others died, no help was sent to help them, and then the administration lied about the cover-up. Another bad move.
IRS scandal—the IRS delayed tax exempt status (501c) to conservative groups while approving liberal groups. Really bad move since almost everyone hates the IRS.
AP phone records—the AP phone records were (as well as the IRS scandal) brought the prospect of Big Brother to the forefront in the minds of many Americans as the Justice Dept used high handed tactices to secure the phone records of one of their supporters. It begs the question of what would have happened if they wanted records, or anything else for that matter, if it had been a conservative organization instead of the AP.
There is an old saying—where there is smoke, there is fire. Those of us on the right have always known that President Obama’s knee jerk reaction is to use the power of the Federal gov’t to accomplish his ultra liberal goals for America. Unfortunately the President has a ‘duck and cover’ mentality when it comes to scandals facing his administration. First he will deny the existence of the scandal, then he will try to cover it up, and finally he will blame Republicans. This is what got Richard Nixon into trouble, not the crime itself but the cover-up.
The clock is running out on the Obama administration. It is time to tell the truth and nothing but the truth and let the chips fall where they may. Sure, heads may roll. Sure Obama’s approval rating will fall. Sure the news media will no longer worship at the feet of the ‘chosen one.’ But in the end, Barack Obama will recover. The American people will forgive him. The problem is the time remaining on the clock. After telling so many lies and covering up so many lies and scandals, a Special Prosecutor must be called. Then his presidency is done. So far I have not called for Obama’s impeachment. Like many other reasonable American citizens, I have chosen to wait for the President to come clean with his involvement in these scandals or at the very least, tell us who was responsible for all of these problems. In this, I am not speaking as a Republican or a conservative, but as a concerned American citizen. The Watergate scandal was extremely harmful to our country, we do not need another.
