DNC Sticks to the ‘Nothing to See Here’ Defense

You can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time. And liberals think they’re fooling everybody any ol’ time.

The actuality is that “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” doesn’t really work as a defense, no matter how hard the Democratic Party pushes it as policy.

That doesn’t stop them from trying. Just last week, presidential spokesman Jay Carney tried to say the gusher of scandals from the Obama Administration really didn’t exist, only to be treated to the rare experience of the mainstream media ridiculing the obvious ploy.

At this point, Democrats must feel safer if they stick to preaching to the choir. DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse sent out an email Friday in which he said the GOP is “making up so-called ‘scandals’ out of thin air.”

That would be the same special thin air the Obama Administration uses to make invisible the events in the Benghazi attack, the DOJ investigation of reporters and their families, and the IRS’s own admissions of targeting conservatives.

Why would the GOP even need to “make up” scandals when ready-made ones are flying out of this Administration like Pop-Tarts out of a toaster?

“Getting in President Obama’s way has been the top priority for Republicans in Congress since day one,” Woodhouse wrote. “But now they’ve gone too far.”

All these presidential mouthpieces sound more and more like the flustered unwed mothers of juvenile gang members who’ve been caught red-handed committing some nefarious crime — “my child would never tag the local grocery store with swastikas. …”

It’s a bunch of baloney, and everyone knows it. Let’s just cut through the deception and get to the part where cops start thinning out the crowds of people who work at the White House.
