“I did not have sex with that woman…” President Bill Clinton.
“I am not a crook,” President Richard M. Nixon.
“There’s no there, there,” President Barack Obama.
Regarding the as yet untold story about what happened that fateful day last year on September 11th, 2013, in Benghazi, Libya, President Obama said, “There’s no there, there.” Well, he seems to be getting pretty lonely with that perspective, as even his strongest supporters seem finally to be getting curious. The president is distancing himself from an awful lot these days. The Benghazi attack (during which he won’t even say where he was and what he was doing), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting of the Tea Party and others (says he knew nothing about it), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) seizing Associated Press (AP) reporters phone records (again, he denies knowledge and says it’s a DOJ situation), which could include tapping twenty phones used by up to 100 reporters.
The President, who called questions about the attacks and murders in Benghazi a “side show” and a “political circus,” is back peddling, in circles, faster than any clown in that political circus. The President says the IRS and the DOJ are independent entities, as if they are not a part of the Executive Branch, which, if I recall my social studies correctly, the President heads. Is the President in control of anything? Is the dodge going to be: I’m not guilty; I might be ignorant or incompetent, but in no way am I guilty? Maybe some of those little peons down there, but certainly not me way up here!
When President Obama said his would be the most transparent administration in history, I saw no evidence of it. However, now I finally see it. If there is anyone who still can’t see through the false statements, elusive explanations, and evasive statements, then they have their eyes shut. In order to see it, one need only open his eyes. Just ask Tom Brokaw.
