The Obama scandals

Obama and his minions are mired up to their eyeballs in scandals, what with Benghazigate, the IRS targeting of conservative groups for harassment, and the Justice Departments secret grab of Associated Press phone records, not to mention the lingering Operation Fast & Furious debacle.

I’ve been watching the so-called testimony of outgoing IRS Commissioner Steven Miller as he tries to weasel his way around actually having to answer very pointed questions directed to him by the congressional committee investigating the IRS’s malfeasance. Highly entertaining.

Even more entertaining are the howls of protest from Obamas apologists who bleat that these investigations are merely some kind of politicization, and that those pursuing these issues are simply trying to score political points against Obama.

Well what’s wrong with that?

Obama was elected to office — a political process — and I’d think it’s certainly a perfectly valid and rational question to ask whether or not that political process ended up putting into that office a man who is corrupt, or at the very least allows and even encourages corruption to permeate the ranks of government.

Isn’t that what the political process is about, giving the people the information they need to make political decisions about the people they’re electing to public office?

Is a person in office somehow magically immunized from having any further political responsibilities for his actions anymore?

Really?

Is that the same standard the leftists applied when Bush was in office?

Not to mention Reagan, when they spent eight years setting their hair on fire?

Or are we simply watching another exercise of standard leftist hypocrisy?

I know where I place my money on that question.
