The travesties visited on the nation by the Imperial President’s regime are legion that are turning America into a banana republic: Government takeovers of private industry, Fast and Furious, the DOJ’s refusal to prosecute black law breakers, astronomical expenditures initiated by Obama (still being blamed on his predecessor), illegal interim appointments, downplaying persistent Islamic violence, encouraging friendships with and giving financial aid to nations hostile to America while decimating US defenses and boosting foreign military might are just a few examples.
These qualify for banana republic status.
Now we have Benghazi, IRS wrongdoing, and persecution of the press. Despite this, there is a dogged, blinkered segment of the population which gives Our Dear Leader and his administration a free pass. Joblessness, misery, and looming financial ruin are at catastrophic levels, yet his approval rating, according to Gallup and Rasmussen polls, is currently 49%. Why?
Benghazi has been proven to be a political cover-up.
Hillary Clinton has an enormous cadre of leftists slavering for her to throw her hat in the presidential ring in 2016. Why, Michael Bolton (who?) would “walk across the country” if it would encourage that outcome. No one has held Obama to account for Benghazi. Where was he? No one knows . . . and no one is asking. John Boehner refused to form a select committee to investigate. Boehner doesn’t believe that the situation has “yet risen to that level.” No? Why?
The IRS is springing so many leaks that if it was a ship it would be kissing the ocean’s sandy bottom. It turns out that Douglas Shulman, former Commissioner of the IRS, visited the White House 118 times in two years. That averages more than once a week. Why? The IRS Commissioner’s is not a policy making post; the position merely carries out policy. Shulman’s predecessor, Mark Everson, also visited the White House under President Bush. He visited once during his four-year tenure from 2003-2007.
Lois Lerner’s story also grows ever more corrupt. The latest disclosure of her activities indicates that she personally granted tax-exempt status to the Action for a Progressive Future in 2011. Not just any liberal organization, this “foundation” is run by Obama’s half-brother, Abongo “Roy” Malik Obama. According to The Daily Caller, however, Lerner’s involvement was even more grotesquely dishonest than it first appeared:
“In the month before the foundation was granted tax-exempt status, the National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint with the IRS, asking why the group was allowed to solicit tax-deductible contributions when it had not applied for a determination. That’s when Lerner gave it the retroactive exemption back to December 2008.”
How can this massive cesspool continue to be disregarded?
Even with all the above, Obama remains untouchable. Any 0ther president would have been run out of office during his first term. But liberal doctrine doesn’t sanction objectivity.
Delusional pigheadedness doesn’t change reality no matter how desperately liberals and RINOs want it to. Ignorance of the law is not a defense against breaking the law. Neither is ignorance an excuse for a lack of political comprehension. But it surely is a path toward becoming a banana republic.
