Stop the Ride, Someone Needs to Get Off

I KNOW NOTHING!

You may remember the Wendy’s commercial from back in the 80’s when a little old lady said, “Where’s the beef?” This became a famous tag line for a while. There was also a television show with Tony Danza “Who’s the Boss”. Now we flash forward to 2013 and I propose we combine the two and create an ad line for the Federal Government to use. “Where’s the Boss”.

The genie is out of the bottle, toothpaste out of the tube, air is out of the balloon, any cliché you want to use. They administration needs to understand this. For the last few days we have had one answer after another from this government regarding the IRS scandal, Department of Justice, Health and Human Services, Benghazi and the list goes on. This Scandalpalooza is growing by the day. No legitimate answers have been given by either the White House or Attorney General Holder. The president claimed Monday that he discovered the IRS scandal from the media reports. Today AG Holder said “I run a Department of over 116.000 I can’t know everything that is done” You must be kidding. Only in Never-Never-Land could this be an acceptable answer. You just admitted that you can’t do your job. You were put in that position to do just that. Manage your dept.

Today David Axelrod made a statement that may be the most accurate thing reported yet. During and interview with MSNBC Axelrod said  “Part of being president is there is so much beneath you that you cannot know because the government is so vast,” Where in the world is that an acceptable reason for the goings on with this administration.

Who in this government is ever going to step up and take responsibility for the things that have happened? Is America so engulfed by “Dancing with the Stars” or “The Voice” or “Survivor” “The Nanny” or whatever it is that is keeping them from paying attention that they can let their government escape from accountability.

I am not going to play politics about the last election. People voted for the candidate of their choice and that is fine. That is the way the country is run. Now I put to the public WAKE UP! Your freedoms and rights are being violated by this government. I will not point the finger at the President even though I could because ultimately the buck stops with him. Lets look at the events and see who is responsible.

The IRS is running rampant with illegal seizures of more than 10 million medical records in California and is being drawn into a class action lawsuit that us taxpayers will undoubtedly have to pay for. Conservative and Tea Party groups are beginning to line up to sue the IRS if for nothing else but to recoup legal fees they incurred to fight back. Again, money us taxpayers will have to cough up. The Department of Justice is on the hot seat for two issues as well. First, they illegally obtained the records of more than 100 Associated Press reporters phone lines including their homes and cell. The Attorney General claims he recused himself but had no comment when he was asked when that was. The department’s regulations state that prosecutors should obtain the Attorney General’s personal sign off when a free press is at stake. The Attorney General reports that he did not sign off or have knowledge in this case because of the recusal. This all taking place when we still don’t have answers about Fast and Furious. Now the President wants to appoint this individual to oversee the investigation of the IRS. You have to be kidding.

The State Department still can’t come up with answers regarding the Benghazi scandal. The talking points memo that sparked the latest round of controversy along with the recent testimony of the Whistleblower to the House Oversite Committee. Still no one can offer a direct answer as to who ordered the stand down not once but twice.

The Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is now being investigated by the House for alleged soliciting private funds to help pay for implementing Obamacare. This after Obamacare was supposed to be the program that was going to save us millions and billions of dollars every year and put the government back in the black.

The public comments of “The White House has no knowledge of this” and “The White House cannot comment on an ongoing investigation” need to stop. The President above all others, beyond politics, needs to stand up and tell it like it is. He was voted to the office to Lead the nation. So stand up and be a leader. Leadership  is what we all want and need right now. Heads need to roll and he needs to show us something to restore confidence in the public trust. Outside of politics, he needs to lead us. Hopefully it’s not off the nearest cliff.
