Watergate. Yes, you read that right. I am about to begin this article writing about Watergate! Err, well, rather in contrast to the IRS smidgen of a scandal. Thanks to Charles Krauthammer for reminding us all about a bit of history, that the second article of Impeachment against Nixon had nothing to do with Watergate per-say, it was about Nixon’s abuse of using the IRS to target his political enemies (Sound familiar?)
Watergate and that second article of Impeachment, Nixon’s IRS scandal was enough to shoot for an Impeachment of President Nixon. Yet with this President and his administration and political arms (EPA, IRS, DHS, DOJ, NSA, VA… etc.) we now have a present day “Teflon” President that nothing sticks to. A term that was originally awarded to Ronald Reagan by the then left wing media of his day.
One can surmise if a Republican president had all of these scandals, and on top of that the Bergdahl deal, Benghazi, leaving no troops in Iraq just to watch it disintegrate, and not dozens but nearly a hundred more political atrocities, including doing an end run around Congress, and ignoring the constitution, … the left wing media of our day and all the Democrats on the hill would have Impeachment proceedings well on their way by now.
Just taking one scandal of President Obama, and applying it to a Republican President and that is all it would take to tie the political noose around his/her head and hang ’em high in an Impeachment proceeding. Yes, Just one! Take the IRS scandal. In this “Smidgen” of a scandal, if there was no wrong doing it would be difficult to paint someone into a corner to make them look bad. However, a corner is where they are easily painted into. Yet, we are asked by the left, or rather told by the left that there is nothing here. I am reminded of Leslie Neilson in “The Naked Gun” standing in front of an accident speaking into a bull horn “Move along! Nothing to see here”.
Just because the IRS targeted Conservative groups and individuals, that Lois Lerner attempted to take the 5th and found herself in Contempt of Congress, that IRS supervisors met with the President nearly as much as he has played Golf! That Lois Lerner’s hard drive crashed, lost all the emails, the hard drive is now gone, six other people being investigated have lost their emails too, the company that backs up the emails was let go by the IRS 9 days after the emails were lost, the White house was told about it 6 weeks before the investigation committee learned of it (and only because the committee asked), that the staff of Elijah Cummings who sits on the committee sent emails to the IRS asking for them to pick on Conservative, … and this is all a smidgen of a scandal… Politically motivated by the GOP… making a mountain out of a mole hill.
The left wing media either not reporting about the IRS scandal, or reporting on it as a GOP witch hunt, brain washing the low informative democrat voters that the Democrats are for you! Just look at what the Republicans are doing! They (republicans) are no good!
I said from day one of the Fast and Furious scandal that this leads directly up to Eric Holder, and possibly Obama. The IRS is very similar as it is not a far stretch to suggest the emails were not lost. They were destroyed, and why? Because they lead to the White House, and to Democrat politicians on the hill.
However, as I mentioned: This is the Teflon administration. No amount of committee hearings will do a thing to the administration. They can ask all the questions they want. They can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt any scandal, but with the media behind the President and Liberals, all scandals will go to the wayside. Scandals need a special prosecutor or a select committee. Without? It is all a waste of time. Also, time itself is wasted, meaning that the time this is taking Obama will be out of office and that is why they (Democrats) just are not too threatened by it all. Just look at the faces of Lois Lerner, Hilary Clinton, and anyone that has testified in any of these many scandals. They are arrogant because they know the Republicans can not do a thing to them in the long run. Even finding Lois Lerner & Eric Holder in contempt could have carried jail time and a fine, but the Republicans did not have the guts to do that. Do you think if the shoe was on the other foot Democrats would have let an opportunity to put a Republican in jail go wasted? Of course they would have someone in jail.
Republicans must stop allowing themselves to be politically punched in the jaw while they never hit back. Republicans must start behaving like Democrats. We are in a political civil war and we are losing. All gloves must be off. So much damage has been done with these scandals and the administrations policies we may be past the point of no return, but we must try. We need to be rid of Rino Republicans, moderates, and fall back to conservative values and policies that were held so dearly by Ronald Reagan. Even then moderate republicans were against him! Remember, moderates will get you to the same place a democrat will, just a bit slower.
This Teflon President will never be impeached, and the damage he WILL DO with his remaining time will be stepped up. What more scandals will be exposed in the next three years? It is foolish to think they stop today. There will be more. More bad policies, more foreign failures, and more scandals. Boehner must assign special prosecutors to each. Only then will the courts be involved, and when a court is involved, hiding evidence like Eric Holder did, like the IRS is doing will not be tolerated, and punishments can be presented to the offenders. Until then? hearings like this IRS scandal is just a show.
I am of the opinion that the administration has something on Beohner. Via the NSA or something else. He has stopped opposing the president and he is not fighting the administration on anything. I believe this administration has done this to many people already (General Petraeus for one). Chicago politics so to speak. We need a house leader not afraid to assign a special prosecutor to any given scandal. This mid-term election is so very important. As we have seen how voters reacted to Cantor, I pray voters will do the same and elect more conservatives. Get involved this election. Conservatives are the true historical patriots, but we do not get involved enough. If moderates are all that we present on election day we stay home. We must back conservatives long before any election be it local or not. It is time to put an end to the destruction of America, be it this President, Liberal politicians and moderate Republicans.
God bless America.
