OK, so here's the latest partial list:
Fast and Furious - evidently an attempt by the Justice Department to force gun control to the forefront under the guise of tracking weapons to drug lords. It was completely botched by the Justice Department. Both Eric Holder and Barack Obama say they didn't know anything about it.
Benghazi - An attack on our embassy in Libya where, it appears, something the Administration was up to something else as well because of the "mission" that was there, reportedly operated by the CIA. However, we've gotten completely away from that story because of all the other scandals. The State Department not only didn't have the personnel there protected, even though they'd begged for more security, but refused to help them when trouble came. Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama said they were unaware of the problems there.
AP Phone Records - The Justice Department seized the records of Associated Press reporters citing national security concerns ("leaks") without notifying in advance the AP they were doing so, even though that was the procedure. I guess it's OK when the government doesn't follow the rules. Either way, Barack Obama says he didn't know anything about it.
James Rosen of Fox News - see AP Phone records above. Same deal all around, except they were even more intrusive because, of course, it's Fox News. Barack Obama says he didn't know about this one either.
IRS - The Internal Revenue Service not only leaked confidential information about farmers in the Midwest, but specifically targeted 501 c(4) organizations that didn't toe-the-liberal-party-line. This targeting included actual harassment, demanding to know such things as what the organizations' leaders prayed about. Liberal organizations, in the meantime, were given 501 c(4) status without so much as the blink of an eye. Barack Obama, Timothy Geitner, and the head of the IRS all say they didn't know anything about this.
IRS (again) - The Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) specifies the IRS will be then enforcement agency for health care coverage, and they're hiring 16,000 new agents just for that purpose. Turns out the person in charge of implementing Obamacare for the IRS is the same person who ordered the targeting of conservative organizations. Oops - that'll work out well! No comment from Barack Obama or Tim Geitner....
IRS (AGAIN!) - The people who hold a gun to your head and tell you to pay up or else are spending millions on "conferences" that are nothing more than lavish vacations for their employees. They make entertainment videos, have dance classes, and reserve expensive hotel rooms for these time-outs - all with your money. Barack Obama and Timothy Geitner didn't know anything about this.
IRS (One more time) - The person responsible for some of these abuses was called before Congress to 'splain herself, and she took the 5th amendment!! Try doing that the next time the IRS asks you to 'splain yourself!!
NSA - As it turns out, the same Barack Obama who, as a Senator, castigated George W. Bush for spying on Americans, now has the very same agency collecting massive amounts of information about American Citizens. Claiming his administration "strikes the right balance", he suddenly seems to know an awful lot about something he said initially he didn't know was happening! On top of all this, there are a number of members of Congress, including many RINOs, who don't see a problem with all this data collection.
Susan Rice - She either lied about Benghazi, or was too stupid to realize what she was saying didn't hold water. She's now been appointed National Security Adviser.
In light of all the above, here's a couple of things you need to come away with:
First, this is either the most incompetent administration in history because nobody appears to know what's going on, or this is the most corrupt administration in history. Either one is really bad!
Secondly, and here's the main point: Neither Barack Obama, any of the members of his cabinet, any of his appointees, any civil service employee, or any combination of the above - none of them are qualified to be God. Yet, over the years, we've allowed them God-like powers over our lives, and over the last weeks and months the curtain has been pulled back just enough that we can see that monster pulling the strings on the other side.
So, here's my question: Have you had enough? Apparently, we really are that stupid.
