It is naïve to believe Barack Obama was unaware of his own campaign team’s re-election strategies. Foremost, was preventing the Tea Party and conservatively oriented groups from raising money for advertising and discussing critical issues like unemployment, deficit spending and ObamaCare. Second, was ignoring those actually responsible for the attacks at Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. Being truthful concerning both issues would have compromised his election chances.
When reflecting on these two issues simply ask the following questions. Who benefitted the most from the IRS delaying tax exempt status prior to the election for the Tea Party and philosophically conservative groups? Who benefited the most by ignoring references to the Al Qaida inspired Benghazi attack? In both instances the answer is Barack Obama.
It was no coincidence conservatively oriented groups were deliberately intimidated, unfairly audited and purposely delayed in receiving tax exemption. We now know the IRS held almost 500 conservative groups in limbo since 2009 in anticipation of the 2012 election. That’s why they had little impact on the campaign.
Deceipt and cover-ups of the Benghazi attack were specifically designed to preserve the President’s narrative concerning Al-Qaida. During the election campaign we were constantly told that Osama Bin Laden was dead, General Motors was alive and Al Qaida was defeated. That’s why Americans were told that the attack was by demonstrators protesting an insignificant religious video rather than Al Qaida inspired and organized Islamic terrorists.
