One may be forgiven for being stunned into inaction at the audacity of the current administration. Consider some recent events:
A top Internal Revenue Service official flagrantly declines to testify before a House Congressional committee investigating her behavior. Subsequently the ranking Democratic on that same house congressional committee is found to have been both illegally receiving tax information from this official and collaborating with her defense team behind-the-scenes.
A Cabinet member assures us there will be no further delays in implementing a policy that has become synonymous with the current administration. Within a month, this member contradicts herself, and then abruptly announces her resignation. The administration proceeds to nominate the same bureaucratic apparatchik that ordered the shutdown of the World War II Memorial in DC as her successor.
Our nation’s major geopolitical foe makes major incursions into one of its “near abroad” states while our Vice President and Secretary of State race to see who can be the bigger squanderer of our few remaining shreds of influence on the world stage.
Oh, and the Attorney General – the head of the Justice Department – is being threatened with contempt by Congress.
Oh, and a 16-year-old outside Pittsburgh stabs 22 people before school one morning.
These are enough revelations, over the life of a normal eight-year (never mind four-year) Administration, to bring it to an early, merciful close.
And yet … and yet, this is but ONE WEEK (April 6-13) in the administration of Barack Obama.
Let that sink in.
