Over and over again now, we have watched Barack Obama’s response to scandal after scandal. There have been DOZENS of scandals, but the same simple recipe has been followed each time.
Here is the recipe so you can avoid all personal responsibility for yourself with your family, co-workers and friends:
”I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday.”
Instruct your media spinner to say:
Just keep denying knowledge and using the same excuse: Obama is merely a bystander who just happened to stumble onto outrageous conduct. He didn’t know, he couldn’t have known. We’re trying to make the government bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger, but you can’t blame us for scandals because the government is already far too big to control.
Keep in mind that Obama can NEVER say, “Of course I knew what was going on! I’m the damned PRESIDENT, aren’t I? It’s my damn JOB to know what’s going on!” because the next obvious question would be, “Well, sir, why the hell didn’t you do anything about it?” And Obama would just be left twisting in the wind in any honest attempt to hold him accountable. He HAS to plead gross incompetence and ignorance in order to avoid criminal corruption. While the fact remains that Obama is of course incredibly incompetent AND incredibly dishonest and corrupt.
2) Express outrage that this scandal (that you didn’t know about so it clearly wasn’t your fault) happened. Say some variant of you want to find out “whose ass to kick.”
4) Instruct everyone under you that they can’t comment about the scandal until after the investigation has been completed.
5) Stonewall any outside investigation at absolutely every turn. Openly mock these investigation by publicly demonizing them as “partisan witchhunts” and by either withholding documents or by redacting them to the point where no one can possibly learn anything even if they get to see them. Threaten or withhold any relevant witnesses from testifying.
6) At some point, start declaring that the scandal is either “old news” or a partisan Republican attack.
7) Repeat ad nauseam.
Obama’s VA scandal will increasingly explode as the IG report confirms the worst charges in the Phoenix VA facility. But understand that Obama has allowed this scandal to fester for YEARS when WE KNOW HE KNEW ABOUT IT BASED ON HIS OWN PRIOR STATEMENTS. And now that the scandal has been dragging on for week after week, what do we see? The same faux “outrage,” the same useless foot-dragging, the same nothing that has been THE quintessential Obama response to EVERY scandal.
If the mainstream media had covered Obama with the same intensity and tenacity that they employed against George W. Bush, Obama would have long-since either resigned or been impeached with the help of his own desperate party.
