From Benghazi, wire tapping the Associated Press to now the IRS targeting the Tea Party,Obama's house of cards are starting to sway.
Very interesting how it takes the second term of a presidency for all hell to break loose. Bill Clinton had to deal with cigar-gate which stained his presidency, I know. I couldn't resist. George Bush had the bad timing of having the sub prime housing bubble blow up nearing the end of his second term which really helped pave the way for Obama winning. So with Obama now into his second term, what could possible be the iceberg laying in his path? Well, it's not an iceberg, it's multiple icebergs actually. Progressives were hoping for Benghazi to either go away or just be discredited as a mere right wing conspiracy against Obama. Much to their dismay, the story is getting more and more coverage every day. Even Obama's gate keepers in the media have turned on him to a point and are now calling him out on his lies about Benghazi. The old saying goes "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely". Looks like the Chicago Obama/Daley machine didn't know when to take the foot off the gas. The story right now that has managed to eclipse Benghazi is actually another potential scandal involving the IRS. The news has broken wide open about the IRS targeting conservative and tea party groups for almost two years. Any conservative, tea party group or constitutional group who were seeking tax exempt status were unfairly scrutinized by the IRS. That included the IRS requesting private information about the people belong to the groups and their donor lists. That is a major, major no no. With the IRS now in charge of being the revenue collector for Obamacare, people are not going to be very trusting (as if they were before) of giving any information about their health status etc to the IRS. I've been shocked to discover that some liberals are also angry at the IRS for their actions against Tea Party and conservative groups. Maybe some progressives have some decency after all when it comes to fair treatment by government agencies regardless of political ideology. Even the progressive narcissist Jon Stewart made and issue of the IRS and the Obama administration over the brewing scandal including the IRS
