I’d like to think in just a few days we can all get back to normal – whatever “normal” means to you. (I for one am growing tired of wearing the same old Romney/Ryan t shirts day after day. They are ready to be retired.) Soon, our television fare will be suddenly, and blessedly, not be about political races and our collective attention can turn to making ends meet from day to day. If we’ve made the right decisions at the ballot box, we can look forward to the eventual return of prosperity. If we have not, we can all quit our jobs, apply for food stamps and welfare checks. But no matter who is elected next week, there are unanswered questions for the Obama administration which demand answers and they will follow him for the rest of his life.
I’m still baffled, though.
As I sit here this morning I do not understand how the American people are not already marching on Washington DC demanding that the Obama administration come clean about Libya. I think we all know mistakes were made – tragic mistakes that cost American lives. I think we all understand that mistakes can happen in any administration – the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction come to mind. So why are Barack Obama and his administration still stonewalling? Because, dear reader friends, Barack Obama is a coward. He cannot summon the courage to admit his mistakes because to do so might cost him his cushy job.
Here’s a bulletin, Barry.
You’re going to lose your cushy job anyway. Telling the truth, however belatedly, about the mistakes made in Benghazi to the American people might earn you blanket forgiveness. It might even excuse your obvious disdain for our intelligence, but it won’t pull your fat out of the fire this time. You’ve screwed the pooch. By playing fast and loose with the truth and treating Americans like me as if we didn’t have two brain cells to rub together is beyond insulting. As a nation, we don’t easily forgive such Machiavellian manipulations. You have lost all credibility and whatever small moral authority you might have had to lead went right out the window the morning you flew off to Vegas to campaign while the bodies of American hero’s you sacrificed for your own ego were still cooling. Whatever else that little trip did for you, it earned you the contempt of the patriots in this nation. It was at that very moment you lost your bid for a second term. Each day since, you’ve compounded your high crimes against the American people.
For my part, I’m still hoping that the House of Representatives draft articles of impeachment before you leave office. Somehow the shameful stain of this Presidency must be erased from our proud history.
