There will be no Triple Crown winner, but we do have a troika of Obama scandals, all of which were in the news this week. This morning on CNN, a gleeful Jessica “Barack Just Smiled at Me!” Yellin, celebrated their latest poll, which shows that these messy questions about unethical, or even illegal, behavior by members of his administration has not diminished the endless love the American people have for the Dear Leader. She’d fit right in in North Korea.
Some, including the members of the House Ways and Means Committee, who held a hearing last week about the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups, are less enamored. Former Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, who recently decided to move his previously scheduled exit to his cushy retirement up by a couple of weeks, responded to requests to know who initiated this policy with shoulder-shrugging, bored evasiveness.
His demeanor said “Whatever. I don’t really care what happened. Let’s get this over with.” He couldn’t say. He didn’t know. He didn’t remember. Cue The Carpenters. This has only just begun. What do we know after this hearing? Some Republicans are opening talking “impeachment,” but is that really helpful? Is “scandal” really an agenda, especially when we learned last week that the House is close to a deal on “comprehensive immigration reform?” Short answer: no.
In response to the revelations about the 12 revisions of the Benghazi talking points, the White House decided to play along and pretend that they really are “the most transparent administration in history.” What was in these emails, and more, important, what wasn’t?
This week’s designated White House mouthpiece, the inarticulate Dan Pfeiffer, appearing as if he’s making a hostage tape, recites his memorized lies about both Benghazi and the IRS scandals. It’s no surprising that he would embarrass him yet again. Remember one of his greatest hits, involving that bust of Winston Churchill?
Plus, a very special 2nd Amendment Update, featuring Nicole Goeser, whose life changed forever on April 2, 2009, when her husband was murdered right before her and dozens of other people at a Nashville bar. How did gun control laws enable this brutal crime? How did it stop Nicole from possibly saving her husband’s life?
Tune in today for the rest of the story.
