Obama, at one time during his elections, campaigned that his would be a “transparent” presidency. And from all that we have seen, here in America, nothing could be further than the truth! In the video below, he blames former President Bush for using his executive power to bypass Congress:
Yet, look at some of his most recent comments on his executive power:
And I don’t know what surprises me more, the scandals that have occurred in his administration or the fact that people still believe in him and support him despite it all. The stink runs afoul with the mere fact that he never fired the key individuals involved in the IRS targeting scandal, in which the notorious entity unto itself targeted conservative groups in order to unfairly gain unfair taxes. These individuals were, instead, only transferred to another part of his administration. And if you have ever been fired for being honest to your customer (like the author of this article!) then this only serves to rip your stomach out of your gut more so than simply turning it.
Another gut ripper is the way that his administration’s attempts to openly discuss all aspects of the investigation following the Benghazi attack. This snippet from Wikipedia says volumes about it:
Critics including Republican Party members accused the Obama White House and State Department of over-emphasizing or fabricating the role of Islamic anger over the anti-Islamic movieInnocence of Muslims and alleged that the administration was reluctant to label the attack as “terrorist”. Representative Mike Rogers (R-MI), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who on the 13th of September said that the attacks had all the hallmarks of a coordinated attack by al-Qaeda, has questioned whether there were any protests at all in Benghazi, saying: “I have seen no information that shows that there was a protest going on as you have seen around any other embassy at the time. It was clearly designed to be an attack.” According to critics, the consulate site should have been secured better both before and after the attack.
On September 20, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a classified briefing to U.S. Senators, which several Republican attendees criticized. According to the article, senators were angered at the Obama administration’s rebuff of their attempts to learn details of the Benghazi attack, only to see that information published the next day in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
GOP legislators also took issue with delays in the investigation, which CNN attributed to “bureaucratic infighting” between the FBI, Justice, and State. On 26 September, Senator Johnny Isakson(R-Georgia) said he “cannot believe that the FBI is not on the ground yet.”
All of the blame, the lies, and the smokescreens in this administration simply make me unable to believe anything anyone says in the Obama camp. And this is horrible for a president who promised transparency to the American people. Transparent my ass!!!
