I renounced RedState before the election because everyone seemed determined to defeat whoever the nominee was at the expense of purity. I predicted what that would lead to. Welcome to the world you invited into your life - Obama's second term.
We now have not one, not two...but FOUR major, impeachable, indictable scandals that even the spin master Carney cannot contain. "Bush's fault", "Romney's fault", "We didn't know" and "The White House was not informed" have become school-yard level excuses, worthy of 6 year olds, that whatever happens, "we had nothing to do with it. Period. And you better write that...or you'll get a visit from the IRS."
I was 12 years old when Nixon almost got impeached. I saw what happened, and I judged it based on what I could mentally process at the time. It was wrong, but like the song "Sweet Home Alabama" triumphed, "Watergate does not bother me". It was a monstrous case of idiocy, stupidity, and incompetence. But what DID bother me was this:
Using the powers of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposed of these agencies.
This conduct has included one or more of the following:
- He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be intitiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.
Obama is now guilty of exactly what Richard Nixon was charged with.
The only difference is that Woodward and Bernstein don't write and investigate anymore...they throw out a book every now and then, to keep the mutual fund and annuity payments coming in, and depending on one's political persuasion, that book is "awesome, spot on, clearly exactly what happened" or, "utter crap, made it up, unworthy of such a noted journalist"
But Woodward and Bernstein don't exist in the modern era. Bloggers with limited audiences might very well be the very Oracle of truth and fact, but they will be drowned out by the sycophants that Woodward never needed to shout above. Moreover, the President now has his own personal, dedicated, fearless media outlet in MSNBC (owned by Comcast, run on Windows...make a choice). Jesus Christ Himself, with the Father at His side, and the Holy Spirit embodied, could come down from Heaven, and before every man, woman, and child on this planet, denounce Obama as the Antichrist (he isn't, by the way), and MSNBC would still cover it as "Controversy swirls, as alien beings press unfounded charges against President". Two days later, the headline would read "Aliens still offer no proof. Obama moves forward"
In a nutshell, much as we relish these scandals, as they confirm everything we've every thought about this man and his administration, nothing, and I do mean NOTHING, will happen. News cycles will come and go. Jim Carney will blame everyone but himself and his boss. The reporters - who now suffer firsthand at the tyrant's bidding - will express indignation, and then get over it. They are not nearly as important as "The Goal" - whatever that is to the socialist, Marxist, Muslim, blah, blah, blah, mindset. (I honestly don't know what these people are, other than supremely incompetent. FDR was a socialist...but at least he was good at it. BHO is just an idiot.) In the end, it won't matter because of the brilliance of their playbook. Own the media, and be as incompetent as you want: we got your back. My two year old could be President based on this level of performance expectation. My cat, who's dying from cancer, could hit about the same odds if she would just press a random "decision button" each morning could do better.
The wailing, the gnashing of teeth, the countless hours of Congressional hearings, the investigations of a hundred journalists, and the very intervention of God HIMSELF against Barack Hussein Obama will lead to exactly naught. Nothing, zilch, zip, nada.
Mark my words - Joe Biden will never be President (consider that your consolation prize). Obama leaves office unscathed, and the GOP looks like a bunch of whiny toddlers trying to enforce rules no one believes in anymore.
And thus, empires fall.
