. . . since the mainstream media won’t ask.
Questions for the President at his next press conference:
Four dead in Benghazi and many seriously injured under suspicious circumstances, a government cover up, witnesses gagged, questions unanswered, investigations derailed. That’s not a scandal?
Reporters’ records seized, false allegations leveled by DOJ, reporters threatened, reporters and editors prevented from doing their jobs, cover-ups, government intimidation. That’s not a scandal?
Guns run to drug cartels in Mexico, hundreds killed with them (including our border agents), no following-up to arrest perpetrators (instead ANOTHER cover-up), allegations that American guns cause Mexican violence, border security virtually ignored, government interference with investigations. That’s not a scandal?
The EPA used as a legislative arm of the executive branch, installing rules that Congress voted down (a clear violation of the Constitution.) The EPA also used to persecute political opposition. Not a scandal?
NSA surveillance you authorized seriously suspected of violating citizen rights, and that’s not a scandal?
Recess appointments and an illegal war in Libya, both impeachable offenses. Not a scandal?
The IRS used to stomp down conservative groups so they cannot educate and influence citizens about Founding principles that contradict your radicalism. This is clearly an unconstitutional use of power, amounting to illegal political activity. That is a phony scandal?
ObamaCare, passed illegally and unethically; called a train wreck by the very man who helped write it and get it through Congress; promises to bankrupt the country; a measure designed to redistribute wealth and not provide care; a series of laws and regulations violating privacy, the doctor-patient relationship, and the sovereignty of the states. That is not a scandal?
Your records, Mr. President. You’ve released virtually nothing about your life, your education, your term in the Illinois legislature, nothing. Now a respected country sheriff and his investigators, along with document experts, insist that the birth certificate you released is a forgery. This means you are hiding something, that it is likely you are not ‘natural born,’ a requirement in the Constitution for becoming President. And this is not a scandal, Mr. Obama?
What would qualify as a scandal in your view, Mr. Obama? Oh. That’s right. You have already answered that question. It’s scandalous for citizens to own guns, possess private property, keep the fruits of their labor, determine for themselves what kind of schools they prefer, select their own doctor, speak up about matters of conscience, freely exercise their religion, advocate original founding principles, or worse yet, join the Tea Party.
