I don’t think President Obama ‘gets it’ — or worse, he is not playing it straight


Below is from USA Today reporting of President Obama at a Town Hall meeting in Minnesota yesterday.”  President Obama is still saying “phony.”  Why?


“They’re phony scandals that are generated,” Obama said. “It’s all geared towards the next election or ginning up a base — it’s not on the level. And that must feel frustrating, and it makes people cynical and it makes people turned off from the idea that anything can get done.” click here for entire story


He is still using the term “phony.”  Why? because he doesn’t get it? or because he is not playing it straight with the American people?

I wonder if his advisers neglected to tip him off to the latest bombshell:  that IRS Lois Lerner wanted to audit a Republican Senator for the most bogus reasons (delusional reasons? her colleague had to pull her off the ceiling!)  There is nothing phony about this. 

And if that is not enough…if President Obama thinks it stupid, or even phony, the allegation that he is exceeding his power as President….perhaps one of his advisers could print him the US Supreme Court decision about his recess appointment to the NLRB?  The decision was 9-0 —- in other words, it was even close!  Plus, President Obama’s 2 appointees to the Supreme Court agree — he exceeded his authority.

Phony?  Hardly.  I don’t know where a full and fair investigation will lead in the IRS scandal, but I do know that it should be investigated.   There is nothing phony about it — there is lots to be legitimately suspicious about. 

If it truly is a phony scandal, the President should be pushing for a full investigation so he can say ‘I told you so.’  Instead he won’t direct Attorney General Holder to appoint a Special Prosecutor so we can have that full and fair investigation.
