Obama’s Sinking Ship of Fools
After yesterday’s testimony before the House of Representatives, it’s clear that Obama’s gamble--that he could seduce his treasured Muslims by reducing security to scandalous levels and deal with the tragic consequences by spinning a fairy tale so far removed from reality as to be laughable--is a gamble that he will lose.
Given the Obama administration’s formidable capacity for stonewalling, Fast and Furious anyone? the full impact of the fraud may or may not be fully realized before Election Day. But no matter. Remember: Nixon resigned after re-election even though the seeds of Watergate had been planted pre-election.
The only suspense is which anchor will sink the ship—the negligence involved in providing security (and substituting hazard pay if you don’t mind), or the cover-up. It will also interesting to see whether the public will be satisfied with the head of Rice or whether Clinton and/or Obama will be necessary ballast to take the ship down.
