If you’ve been watching any of the big news outlets lately, you know that Obama is dodging scandal after scandal as it’s coming to light more and more that is administration has been up to a lot of illegal activity. I reported earlier this week that the IRS took a very, very close look at the Tea Party’s tax returns, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. From trying to avoid allegation of violating the freedom of the press to downplaying the attacks on Benghazi, the Obama administration has been ducking from scandal after scandal. I’ll try to break down all the news for those of you who don’t know in the simplest way in this article.
First let’s start with the attacks in Benghazi, Libya. While conservatives have been pushing for answers into what exactly caused a U.S. ambassador and others to die because they did not have any security at their consulate, the liberals in the media have been treating the deaths of the men who lost their lives as unimportant. Obama followed suit this week when he and his press secretary referred to questions regarding the incident that happened in September as a “political sideshow”. This is outrageous, and it shows just how far Obama is willing to go to protect his image.
In other Benghazi news, emails were released that showed the White House and other government agencies worried about protecting their image than finding why this happened. While liberals praised Obama for releasing these documents, some conservatives want to see more information on what happened in regards to the incident. This, to me, is unlikely, but we can always hope that the Obama administration will decide to do the right thing and get justice for the men who lost their lives in Benghazi and their families.
Moving on, the Obama administration has been in hot water after it was discovered that they gathered the names and information of reporters who they feared would release information that they wanted kept confidential. Both liberals and conservatives alike have criticized Obama’s administration for going to such extreme lengths to protect its image. After all, reporters from both sides of the aisle were targeted, and it shows that Obama’s democratic administration gives little importance to the freedom of the press. While this has given the Obama administration cause for distress, there’s one last thing that is making Obama’s week one of the worst of his presidency.
That would be the scandal that involves the IRS targeting conservative groups during tax season. Sources within the IRS have admitted that the Tea Party and others were looked over and looked over due to the fact that they were conservative. Rumor has it that top IRS officials will be retiring due to this scandal as one already had bit the dust, and Obama is saying that he had no idea this targeting of conservative groups was going on at the IRS. Nevertheless, it still does not look good for Obama or his administration.
I tell you all these things to make one point. Obama and his administration’s big government policies have spiraled out of control. So much so that they feel that the press has no right to cover legitimate news stories and that the Tea Party and other conservatives should have to fear that they will be singled out for standing up for what they believe in. Is this what we want as a nation though? The answer should be a resounding NO from conservatives and liberals alike. We are a nation of freedom, and Obama is taking these freedoms away from us. So let’s join together in letting Mr. Obama and his administration that we demand answers for why we are having our freedoms taken away so that we can be as free today as we were when this nation was founded.
