Kirsters Baish| A lot of things about former President Barack Obama got under the skin of conservatives during his time in office. He was a horrific president overall, and I think any conservative American would agree. The economy practically shut down during his presidency. And then there was his total lack of self awareness. He turned to media appearances and slots on talk shows to pretend like everything was okay while our country was literally falling apart.
Unfortunately, it seems that time has made things worse. Obama’s real statements have just been released, and you aren’t going to like what he had to say.
The Daily Caller reported:
He has to be joking, right? There’s no way on God’s green earth that he is serious… right?
The truth is that there have been tons of scandals during the Obama era. There were four going on at the exact same time at the EPA alone. This isn’t counting the scandals that have become so infamous in our country, like Operation Fast and Furious during which the Obama administration’s ridiculous program which was made to use American gun dealers and straw buyers in order to give weapons to Mexican drug lords. This scandal had a big old body count too, which included Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata as well as hundreds of Mexicans. That sounds like a scandal to me.
Then there was the IRS scandal in which selective targeting of conservative groups was brought about by a politicized Internal Revenue Service. The story actually started with the IRS admitting wrongdoing…
Democrats suffocated the scandal by acting like circus clowns during congressional hearings, but at no point were the actual facts of the case truly obscured: yes, pro-life and Tea Party groups were deliberately targeted for extra scrutiny, their tax exemption applications outrageously delayed until after the 2012 election without actually being refused. If anything remotely comparable had been done to, say, environmentalist and minority activist groups by the IRS under a Republican administration, the results would have been apocalyptic.
We have to keep in mind that the IRS officials lied about having backups of relevant computer data. Americans were expected to believe that more than one state of the art hard drives had failed… and were shredded instantaneously rather than being put through data recovery options.
And we cannot forget about the big one, Benghazi. Benghazi has been investigated thoroughly, but there is nothing that will change the fact that Obama and his administration told a fake story for the first few weeks following the attack in order to buy themselves time during the presidential campaign.
Nothing can change the fact that Libya was a disaster after Obama’s unlawful military operation. Nothing can obscure the truth that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was sent into a known terrorist hot zone without a backup plan to ensure his safety. Everything else from Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their defenders is pure political spin. They dragged the story out for years, until they thought it couldn’t hurt them any more. That doesn’t erase its status as a scandal. (And they were evidently incorrect in their belief that it couldn’t hurt them any more!)
It seems as though former President Barack Obama is a lot more delusional than we thought he was.
