Some Other Guy Did It

July 22, 2015

A standard tactic used in court by a desperate defense attorney trying to convince a jury that his guilty client is innocent is known as SOGDI – “Some Other Guy Did It”. It is a frantic, last ditch effort to evade responsibility that is as transparent as it is juvenile. When used repeatedly by the president of the United States it is embarrassing to the entire nation.

In an interview with John Stewart on the “Daily Show”, president Obama blamed Congress for the IRS tea party-targeting scandal, saying Congress “passed a crummy law” that provided vague guidance for IRS workers. He doubled down on his SOGDI defense by saying the “real” scandal is that the IRS is poorly funded.

The Justice Department continues to conduct a criminal investigation into the scandal and the IRS internal auditor found that the agency did, indeed, target the tea party and other conservative groups. However, president Obama refuses to accept his own administration’s findings, choosing instead the foolish SOGDI defense.

This administration is riddled with scandal and many of Obama’s policies are proving to be failures but the president refuses to accept blame or responsibility for any of it. His repeated reliance on SOGDI has placed blame on Republicans, Fox News, Bush, Congress, Wall Street, racism, and even the American People for misconstruing his explicit “You can keep your doctor” promise. Like a little kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar, he denies, denies, and denies.

Also embarrassing to the nation is the willingness of his unconditional supporters, especially those in the media, to accept these blatant denials and pretenses. Even the most obvious SOGDI excuse is adopted as a talking point by biased “journalists” to combat even the slightest criticism. It is a commonly held rule followed by his devotees that there is to be no criticism of Obama.

There’s always some other guy to blame and coming from the White House, it is pathetic.

Hillary Hogwash

March 12, 2015

Once again, Hillary is spitting in our faces and telling us it’s raining. At a press conference where she answered only handpicked questions, Hillary said she handed over all pertinent e-mails from her server and deleted her personal ones. She then dug an even deeper hole stating many of those personal e-mails were between her and Bill, who we now find, doesn’t even use e-mail.

It is certain that there will be more hard-to-believe “facts” coming from Hillary as this e-mail fiasco continues to grow. Many Democrats are trying to say there is no story here, but that’s just their standard tactic – like Obama’s “no smidgen of scandal” at the IRS. They will repeat what they want everyone to believe over and over until the mainstream media reports it as a “fact”.

This time it seems Hillary may be in real trouble. Jack Gillum and Stephen Braun of the Associated Press (AP) tore her story apart, finding much of it to be pure bunk and the AP is now suing the State Department to force the release of Hillary’s e-mails. Since the AP is known to lean left, she will not be able to blame a “vast right-wing conspiracy”.

Hillary is well known for hiding and/or denying anything that can cause her damage so she is conducting business as usual. She fit well with an Obama administration operating above the law with no accountability, but her pathetic press conference may be a reality check for many Democrats who have been blindly accepting everything the administration has been doing. Hopefully, those who were on the fence concerning Hillary’s presidential run may now find it harder to support her.

Unfortunately, there are far too many people willing to believe the far-fetched rationalizations and lies this entire administration has been spewing and don’t care about any of this. They will vote for Hillary no matter what happens but if she drops out, they will be just as happy to “make history” by voting for Elizabeth Warren. Even they aren’t delusional enough to vote for Biden. Or are they?

Obamigration Update

February 10, 2015

President Obama, using executive orders and presidential memoranda, is fully engaged in changing, ignoring, and creating immigration laws as he sees fit. He has essentially given millions of illegal aliens immunity from deportation and, as a result, many more are flooding our border to take part in Obamigration.

Efforts to seal our border are practically non-existent and rather than trying to protect our country from the danger of criminals entering illegally, Homeland Security is setting up hotlines to help protect illegal immigrants who believe their rights have been violated. The Mexican government is doing its part by having its consulates in the U.S. issue birth certificates to Mexican citizens to help them squeeze whatever they can from our government.

It is not just Mexicans and South Americans coming here illegally. Since 2010, there has also been a 217% increase in Cubans crossing through our southern border because it is much easier and safer than any ocean passage. This will, no doubt, increase further due to president Obama’s normalizing relations with Cuba. Fanatic Islamic terrorists, too, are well aware of our porous southern border but that, as well as their very existence, is being denied.

As more Americans become alarmed, Obama has accelerated rather than curbed his personal immigration plan. His newest plan will allow illegals here to bring their children, their adult children, their grandchildren and even step-parents into the United States. It will also allow current unmarried illegals to marry someone in Central America then sponsor them for US citizenship.

The icing on Obama’s amnesty cake will come via the IRS. Illegal aliens benefiting from Obama’s amnesty plan will receive tax credits for as many as three years that they worked here illegally. In other words, they will not only be allowed to stay and get fast-tracked for American citizenship, they will be rewarded for having been here illegally.

Welcome to the “transformation of America”. You are obviously a racist if you do not like it.

Questions to Ponder This Week

October 8, 2014

Why is Jesse Jackson going to Texas to talk to the family of the Ebola victim? Is he a doctor? Is Ebola a racial problem? Or is it just because there are cameras?

Why did former CIA director Leon Panetta remain silent on Benghazi when he now admits that he knew from the “very beginning” (as we all did) that Benghazi was a “terrorist attack on our compound”? Was he silenced? Did he fear the administration? Or was he just waiting to reveal it in his book?

Why was Oprah surprised and upset when actress and singer Raven-Symone said she considers herself “American,” not “African-American”? Shouldn’t Oprah applaud such a post-racial idea? Does Oprah fear a color-blind society? Or does she believe that all black women must toe the liberal line?

Why does FBI director James Comey believe Americans fighting with terrorists in Syria are “entitled to come back” unless their passport is revoked? Is he just being politically correct? Does treason no longer exist? Or does he fear offending the left by being too judgmental?

Why does anyone care about Jimmy Carter’s criticism of Obama’s Middle East policies? Is it because Carter was such an expert on Middle East solutions? Or is it because compared to Obama, Carter is starting to look like a competent president?

With over 600 school districts (and counting) across the country dropping out of the school lunch program, why hasn’t it been overhauled or removed? Is it because Michelle Obama is a nutritional expert? Or is it because the liberal agenda requires unconditional support for the Obama’s and cannot admit failure?

Why is the producer of an anti-Obamacare movie being audited by the IRS? Is it just a coincidence? Or is it because the mantra “there is no scandal at the IRS” worked and the IRS is back to business as usual?

“Phony” Scandals Panicking Phony President

July 25, 2013

President Obama “pivoted” from issues that are drowning his administration to smoke and mirror obfuscation or, in other words, to his sweet spot. In an overly-long speech meant to shift focus away from his failing administration, Obama repeated stale economic “hope and change” rhetoric that has no bearing on reality of or the muck of his administration.

Dismissing the chaos swirling around his administration as “phony scandals”, Obama is relying on unconditional support from blind admirers to keep him above the fray, but he is mired much too deeply in the morass. The only phony thing here is his presidency, and even some of his supporters are starting to realize it.

Obama was a phony presidential candidate in 2008, having little or no experience in anything that qualified him for the top job. His rhetoric and promises turned out to be phony and his policies have been driven by personal ideologies. Obamacare, his piece de resistance, was rashly pushed through Congress to gain a political success, camouflaged by a phony concern for the uninsured.

His foreign policies have been idealistic, naive, and amateurish, sneered upon by both allies and enemies who understood right from the start that he was out of his league. His phony diplomacy has been transparent and his inability to make decisions has lowered respect for the US around the world.

His flip-flopping on the Defense of Marriage Act over the years indicates that his present backing of gay marriage is phony. He has shown to be swayed by the political wind, not his conscience. Even his attendance at Columbia University is being questioned and his “superior intelligence” has yet to reveal itself.

It is an insult for this president to dismiss legitimate concerns about the IRS, NSA, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Snowden, Obamacare costs, HHS Secretary Sebelius, Holder’s Justice Department, Solyndra, and much, much more as “phony” scandals. One can only hope that voters will remember this insult at the voting booth and begin the recovery we desperately need.
