WASHINGTON, December 11, 2014 — Few scandals are worse than the no-name house staffer who criticized the Obama daughters on her personal facebook, however Jonathan Gruber calling American voters stupid while bragging about how the Democrats pulled the wool over eyes to pass Obamacare may come close.
If “Grubergate” isn’t enough for you, how about the IRS targeting scandal or the Fast and Furious scandal? It seems like every week we find out about a new Obama Administration scandal.
Isn’t the Obama Administration supposed to be the most transparent in history?
Throughout the entire Obama presidency we’ve seen nothing but lies, stonewalling and even more lies. Take Obamacare for example, besides the President’s “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” lie and all of the Obamacare websites problems, we now have economist Jonathan Gruber who has repeatedly been caught on tape talking about how the Democrats pulled the wool over the eyes of the American people and how American voters are “stupid”.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at this Washington Free Beacon Gruber montage:
Of course Democrats have been trying to distance themselves from him which was evident in Wednesday’s hearing. Although the Democrats and Gruber himself are now claiming he played only a very small role in designing the bill he has refused to release how much he was paid for his “services”. This doesn’t sound very transparent does it?
What about the IRS’ targeting of Conservative groups scandal? While the investigations are still ongoing, new documents obtained by Judicial Watch, show that Lois Lerner met with the DOJ’s Elections Crime Branch just prior to the 2010 elections. One of the more notable exchanges show the IRS and DOJ working together to find a way to prosecute Republicans who “lied” about their 1024 forms.
Here’s an excerpt from the documents:
“I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ … He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen. Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement cases about applicants who “lied” on their 1024s –saying they weren’t planning on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs. I told him that sounded like we might need several folks from IRS…”
It’s becoming very apparent that not only has the DOJ been stonewalling the investigation, but may have been involved in the scandal as well. Again I will ask does this seem like the most transparent administration in history?
It’s true that there has been no true link established between the IRS scandal and President Obama, however as Chief Executive, President Obama is responsible for all of those in his administration. Isn’t that the mantra being repeated over and over by the media about Governor Chris Christie’s “Bridgegate” even after being exonerated by three separate investigations? Only if the media could be as obsessed with the IRS scandal as they were with Bridgegate.
Is the Obama Administration the most “transparent” in history? Not by a long shot, it would probably more accurate to call the Obama Administration one of the most “corrupt” administrations history.
