“Executive Cleanup in Isle One”

Never let a good title go to waste, so I won’t. Not to worry because we do have a mess of presidential proportion. You know it is bad when O’Reilly scolds people about using the word scandal because we just don’t have enough information or know, presumably, “IF” it is a scandal.

By coincidence, at MSNBC Lawrence O’Donnell said the same thing on the same night. Wow, everyone cautioning not to label the presscapade thing a scandal. We have to wait and see. And the IRS thing, at least now they have the report. Barry was saying before its release that “if this happened” (big if, they admitted it) “then there has to be accountability”. Where did I see this movie before? I’m sure I have, several times.

Then over on CNN, Wolf asks congressman Chaffetz if he thinks Benghazigate is an impeachable ordeal that the congressman seemed to be calling for it? Chaffetz corrected Wolf saying we cannot take it off the table. He added that impeachment was not their motivation or immediate objective. Of course that is lost on mainstream media.

To paraphrase them: ‘you mean the door is wide open to impeachment? – Wow!‘ Sure, it always is unless they forgot about our Constitution — that irrelevant ancient relic. For Bush, it was always an option, wasn’t it?

Now the Obama regime has its share of messes. Its like being at the grocery store seeing a couple of separate kids drop a jar on the floor. Whether it was intentional or not does not change the size of the mess. Someone has to clean it up. They may quickly run to the next isle but the mess remains. Hence, the “cleanup” reference.

So the AP story hits them where they live and breathe: in the back channels of the media — where stories are born and die. Having a grand inquisition into their phone records does not thrill them. But its okay when all the questions and heavy-handed government measures are used against the right, say snooping into their tax records, or detailed information about gun owners, or posting addresses of handgun permit holders. Then they overlook the dictocrat measures.

But sum it up, there is a heck of a mess, through how many departments and government? It’s a walking talking scandal from one end to the other. And some hesitate to overuse the word scandal. I will use it liberally. Sure some of it may not be a full-fledged scandal, but so much of it is. Taken together it paints the picture of a government out of touch with the realities around it. In fact, all that seems to matter to this government is politics and the regime’s Alinsky-style tactics, and their appetite to use them to their advantage.

All part of the same strategy, whether it be never let a crisis go to waste, Benghazi, terrorism, the energy problems, the war on terror, or its own duties that people rely on. And along with politicizing all parts of government, he has also scandalized much of it. Now we are cautioned about overusing the word scandal. But isn’t it just Scandalicious?

It is one big mess, and it all summons the president and his spokespeople, frequently, to the podium to make a non-statement about it trying to explain it away. Then, on top of it, we the people always get lectured. (funny how that works)

How many scandals or messes are there? I’ll try making a partial list. I don’t care if some say they aren’t all scandals, they are all symptoms at least of an out of control government that cannot be accountable for its own laundry. They usually have the nerve to turn the blame on the people, or others, as if that solves the problems messes. The word scandal is not an issue with this overwhelming mess.

There is fast and furious – dead officers and dead Mexicans
Gun-running here and in M/E
There is Benghazi
There is the IRS scandal
There is the phone records of AP reporters
There is the justice department — Black Panthers intimidating voters in Philadelphia.
There are the green scandals.
There is Solyndra and countless others, daily
there is the GM deal
there is the bailout fallout.
there is the stimulus — or is it stimulae or stim-u-lie
there is the EPA
there is the State Department and its handling of Benghazi
Don’t forget the labeling of the Fort Hood attack workplace violence.
There are his statements like “you didn’t build that” — some might argue they aren’t really scandals, but its all in his presidential excuses or fallout of such statements. And there are a slew of them.
There was the secret service one – pretty amusing one
there were the innuendo investigations of Petraeus and other military officials.
there were the Hagel problems and the Brennan appointment problems.
there is the drone campaign
There is the overall lack of accountability for anything he has done. (a big and important one)
There is the old racism canard… always sprouting new chutes.
There is ObamaCare and ‘pay to play’ (several others nested under the main one)
There is the birth control and contraceptive one — with lawsuits.
There is the “death panel” one and the denial. “”There are no death panels in ObamaCare…”
There is the main argument (and court battle) over ObamaCare “mandates”- states and otherwise
There is the battle over whether ObamaCare uses a tax or penalty
There are his many too radical for prime time appointments.
Selling F-16’s and tanks to Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhoods running Egypt.
Involvement in Arab Spring from beginning
Libya intervention from the beginning
The entire department of energy under Chu (the man is a walking scandal himself)
The Van Jones connection appointment
The statements to Russian Prez to be more flexible after election
The Keystone Pipeline – ongoing
The moratorium and battle of drilling
The sequester concocted by the president. (scandal and micro-scandal)
Telling governmental bodies to make the sequester cuts obvious to people.
The release of prisoners and blaming the sequester
Threatening cuts to border enforcement
The blaming of the sequester for TSA and every other governmental failure:
i.e. “Its the sequester, stupid!”
Fort Hood – workplace violence
Labor department and Boeing
Military pay and benefit cuts
His military cutting agenda
Spending and priorities
War on terror and Afghanistan become overseas contingency operations
Gun Control, handling the shootings in Newtown.
Fiscal Cliff — coming soon to a theatre near you.

Do I think I overused the word scandal, not a chance. The guy scandalizes his own proposals. Obama is one big radical scandal, and the more people that see him and his administration as such, the better for we the people. But don’t lecture US on using the word scandal or pointing out his failures.

Or… maybe its just time to replace the word scandal with the word Impeachment?

    Bull,

    Did you see the King’s address around 6:17pm tonight. What a lame address. It took just minutes and all he said was the people who perpetrated the IRS onto certain groups will be fired. Whoopee doo! How about that jail time. No mention of that one.

    And the Treasury dept will investigate the IRS. How utterly laughable. The right hand investigating the left hand. Nothing he said was of any use. The same empty words over and over. Nothing new, same ole shit that he spews every time some scandal erupted. He gave NO apology to the conservative and religious groups either. He feigned outrage. Completely NOTHING!

    I saw that damn O’Reilly we can’t say these latest things a scandal. Bullshit. They are scandals no matter what that buffoon OR says. I swear I’ve never seen anyone as lame as he is as a reporter.

    Who in the heck does he think ordered these IRS thugs to go after conservative and religious groups? Some rogue guy in Cincinnati? That makes me laugh out loud. I heard someone say that Cincinnati is such a hotbed of liberals? NO, it is not. Cincinnati is one of the most conservative cities in the country. Of course they have their inner city blacks who vote for the asshole we have now. But the outlying areas are not a hotbed of liberalism.

    But, I’m sure if these liberal people were ordered to do this they would gladly comply. I just love the idea to blame this on Cinti IRS people.

    I couldn’t believe you got all those scandals in one article. Great job, Bull.

    The entire administration is one big scandal. Everyone of them should be fired and replaced starting at the top, the snake himself.

      Pepp,

      Perfectly right, no apology either. I hadn’t even thought of that. It is his government, he can apologize for Bush, not himself. It was a sideshow.

      Then he lectured congress not make it POLITICAL. His poliitics caused it. What utter dribble. Don’t worry, Obama’s Chicago government will Investigate. Sounds like cinci has imported some partisan hacks because they didn’t have their quota of political hacks (ha ha)

      He is the most out of touch (with the American people) guy I’ve ever seen. Do us a favor Obama, Just SHUT UP!

        Bull, right he he is so “outraged” but can’t make an apology to these groups who were targeted.

        Also Fox reported this morning that 8 to 10 Alinsky people, including Schumer, Leahy, Franken, all called on the IRS to investigate the conservative and realize groups. The 2 guys from Cincinnati, stated they were following their bosses orders. So who are the “bosses”?

        This all stinks to high heaven.

        Oh, yeah, that lecture! How dare he when what they did was all “political”. He makes me livid. I’m sick to death of seeing him give vacuous statements and trying to make it look like he’s doing something. That Miller guy was retiring next month, so that was another big load of crap.

    Excellent post Bull! I loved your closing statement that Obama himself is one big radical scandal. I was in the business world long enough to know it always starts at the top. Then they dump off shit for others to do, so the boss can have plausible deniable. Scapegoat Syndrome.

    You are so right the biggest scandal began the day Barry was elected prez and its all been down hill for him, the Traitor Party and his kiss ass media every since. Billy Boy O’Coward has totally destroyed his reputation with so many conservatives I could give a rats ass what bull shit spills out of his mouth onto the TV screen. I watch him as much as I do CNN, MSNBC, et al…NEVER! None have any integrity anymore IMHO. Even FOX lost my trust long ago.

    King Sumbitch has broken so many laws I’ve lost count. He loves using Shitcago thug tactics, he’s addicted to lying and he is a low life traitor. Totally impossible to overuse the word scandal when talking about this administration. It’s amazing though how each and every scandal bounces right off him. Those that say many of these are not scandals are either delusional, complicit traitors or just plain O’ dumb asses. Like I stated…it always starts at the top.

    P.S. Great the title you picked!

      Dave, thanks, I knew you’d get the innuendos as well. New word, Scandalicious.(Webster will love that one) [I guess I wasn’t the first to use it….]

      So right, Dave, what you describe is exactly opposite of what Obama and Cinton do, blame the help, even if it was under their direction. Or blame the guy in your job before you. (that one has been successful) But I think his lies are only that good because media carries them for him.

      We are having a rough time getting that percentage of America and media to look at the top. I don’t have much confidence this will, but its the closest they’ve been to looking upward. If it were Bush, it would be simple, everything was his fault – Katrina was his fault.
