Kathleen Sebelius to resign from Health & Human Services. The acting secretary offered her resignation after months of speculation she would do so after the rocky roll out of the administrations’ health care law. Resign? She should have been fired-months ago but, as with all the problems which have plagued this administration, there has been no accountability. I suspect her resignation will come with a nice severance package and a host of other goodies. The president gave a great speech glorifying her work on the roll out of his signature legislation. Can you imagine if you screwed up so monumentally in your career, what the consequences would be? See? still no accountability accepted for such a horrendous start to a horrendous law.
Yesterday Attorney General Eric Holder brought the race card out in a statement to a predominantly black audience at a National Action Network speech. He said he was proud of the strides and lasting reforms his department has achieved “even in the face unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive adversity.” Holder then implied that he and the president are encountering a different type of “treatment” from House Republicans due to their race. He went on to say “You look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House Committee. It had nothing to do with me. Forget about that. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”
In my view, this is a sad testament to the continued race baiting which has gone on for better than 50 years. As an example Richard Nixon was ruined by Democratic inquiries into Watergate…and rightly so, he did wrong and needed to be held accountable. You expect such vile statements made by Attorney General Holder from the likes of Al Sharpton (whose National Action Network is to whom Mr. Holder was speaking) or Jesse Jackson. Their pompous existence relies on keeping African Americans feeling persecuted, downtrodden and unfairly treated. They are not. A black man is the President of the United States, a black man is the Attorney General of the United States, there are successful black men and women everywhere in the United States. Do you think this happens in a truly racially divided nation? Get real. The fact is this administration has NOT been forthcoming with ANY information related to the scandals of the Obama presidency. It has NOTHING to do with race. It has to do with telling the American people the truth and accepting accountability for your actions.
Fast & Furious-providing weapons to criminals leading to a loss of American life. No one held accountable. The president was unaware.
The loss of 4 American lives at our embassy in Benghazi, Libya. No one held accountable. The president was unaware.
The IRS targeting conservative political groups for tax-exempt status. No one held accountable. The president was unaware.
The National Security Administration eavesdropping on the phone calls of American citizens. No one held accountable. The president was unaware.
The software program created for the Affordable Healthcare Act, at a cost of $1 billion (thus far) and 3 ½ years to “perfect”, has been unusable to the American people. No one held accountable. The president was unaware.
Spying on our Allies, specifically Angela Merkel of Germany. No one held accountable. The president was unaware. (although these things go on knowingly between countries all the time, the fact that our president denies knowledge of this is just another sign of his incompetence as the leader of the most powerful country on the planet).
