According to the information coming out of the White House, the tragedy of Benghazi was just a set of unfortunate circumstances for which the administration could do nothing about. There was no time; no warning. The perpetrators continue to be unknown and no follow-up action has been either taken or discussed. From the administration’s perspective, Benghazi is an unfortunate incident in history and the books are now closed on it; America needs to move on. Given that perspective, would it not seem that the President and his key people would not be a bit more forthcoming in their explanation of actions taken; who ordered it, etc., etc. Instead we are left to simply wonder while being sobered by the senseless deaths of four Americans including a U.S. Ambassador. In this case, we have a President who was so disengaged that he went to bed knowing that the ambassador was missing and never inquired of his status again nor did he engage any key staff members in the process concerning the events of that evening.
The Associated Press telephone taps are rationalized as a matter of national security by the administration attempting to justify such an unlawful act. Apparently Eric Holder was aware of the situation a year before the story broke and he elected to “recuse” himself in the case which can only be construed as a simple action of self-preservation. If Holder was aware of such a situation, then how did it take another year for knowledge of this illegal action on the part of the government to surface to the public? How can that illegal action just continue when people in charge are aware? What did President Obama have to say in the matter? Well, the president reassured the public that he continues to have faith in Mr. Holder’s abilities as a leader. In other words, no one in this administration is responsible for this illegal activity and if they are, they are simply low-level government peons who decided to go rogue in the name of national security. How patriotic those in the Department of Justice and the IRS seem to be these days.
Once the lid was off the IRS situation regarding its discriminatory handling of conservative groups and organizations, the president was once again forced to step before the podium and claim his anger. Of course, he pointed out that he had just learned of the situation just days ago from a news story, never mind that news of this was action on the part of the IRS was being battered about a year when papers were filed seeking release of information under the Freedom of Information Act—information the IRS had refused to release up to that point. So, the president calls for the resignation of the “acting head” of the IRS, a person who was leaving in another month anyway. One might ask at this point why there had been no effort made to appoint a person to head the IRS all this time? Along with the resignation, the president promises that screws will be tightened and processes put in place to avoid any further occurrences in the future. The insinuation here is this is yet another rogue action on the part of low-level employees and no further investigation of the matter is necessary. Here again, let’s just dust ourselves off and get on with life.
Do you not find it rather strange that President Obama seems to be and always has been surrounded by “coincidence” throughout life? He was supposedly born an “American citizen” but coincidentally was able to travel on his passport to India at a time when Americans were not allowed there. For many years he had a Social Security number issued in Connecticut which just coincidentally happened to belong to a man who was long since dead and just coincidentally there is no record of Mr. Obama ever being a resident of Connecticut.
The President was granted entry into Harvard Law School although his grades in undergraduate school are suspect and hardly stellar. Of course, no one has ever produced those grades so we cannot be sure but just coincidentally Mr. Obama graduated Harvard Law as a Magna Cum Laude honor graduate. He coincidentally was chosen to head up the Harvard Law Review but never wrote one article while in the position, which is “coincidentally” not the norm for a person in that position. Mr. Obama, according to his purported grades at Harvard, was a stellar law student yet in life he just coincidentally finds the Constitution of this country an “outdated document which encumbers his ability to govern and get things done”.
Apparently Mr. Obama was hand-picked by a small group of Chicago folks to fill a Senate seat from his state of Illinois. Just coincidentally, one of the people in attendance at that announcement was Obama’s neighbor, Bill Ayers. Ayers, a founding member of the 1970’s Weather Underground, a domestic bomber, terrorist, and one-time qualifier for the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List was “just a guy from the neighborhood” who Mr. Obama claimed to barely know. Never mind that Ayers claims to have penned Obama’s book, “Dreams From My Father” which seems plausible considering that, as indicated by his actions on the Harvard Review, Mr. Obama just coincidentally does not write. Never mind that Bill Ayers father was a key figure in getting Obama his position as a community organizer and as head of the Woods Foundation. Ayers’ father also played a key role in getting the doors open at Harvard Law for Obama. But that is all just coincidence.
Let’s not fret that Mr. Obama sat in the pew of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Chicago church for more than 20 years listening to Reverend Wright spew his hatred of America and poison on a weekly basis. Given that time frame one must conclude that Mr. Obama is either a poor listener or that he happens to agree with what the Reverend was opining from his pulpit almighty. Either way, it is simply a coincidence that is of no significance in determining whether or not Mr. Obama has any real love for this country which he has stated over and over must be transformed into something he fails to describe—coincidentally.
It is simply a coincidence that a president could be as petty as to return a bust of Sir Winston Churchill, a gift from one of our staunchest allies, Great Britain. Mr. Obama also did not seem to have time to attend the funeral of Lady Margaret Thatcher, a woman who stood firmly by the USA throughout all aspects of the Cold War. Apparently the busy schedule of the President would not allow him the time although it does not appear that he missed any golf dates with Tiger Wood during that period either. But, if one can run off to Nevada to campaign when a U.S. Embassy has been attacked leaving four Americans dead, then one might surmise that anything is possible if the President elects to do it.
Mr. Obama claims that he was very cautious growing up and in his college years. He “chose his friends carefully”. Now, just coincidentally, it would appear that a great cross-section of those friends are devout socialists, confessed communists or communist sympathizers, or cut from the cloth of radicalism. One might understand a person having some relations with a couple of those folks but a whole herd of them coincidentally defies the statistical odds of selectivity. Generally, the instinct of a person is to hang with those of the same mindset, similar thought and direction.
There seems to be no end to the “coincidences” surrounding Mr. Obama. No matter what the situation, the tragedy, or the illegality…it was just a coincidence that the President was anywhere about or had any knowledge of the matter. On the other hand, if there is a stellar outcome to anything of the smallest nature, one can be assured that the outcome was directly related to the actions of this President…wow! What a coincidence! This guy is either a sheer genius or we’re being played for fools—you decide.
