A scandal is defined as the following:
1. a disgraceful or discreditable action, circumstance, etc.
2. an offense caused by a fault or misdeed.
3. damage to reputation; public disgrace.
4. defamatory talk; malicious gossip.
5. a person whose conduct brings disgrace or offense.
Make no mistake by its very definition three major scandals are at the doorstep of the Obama administration. These are not the first scandals that have enveloped this administration (Fast and Furious and recess appointments) but they seem to be the ones that have gained the most traction. At the end of the day I’m not convinced that any of these scandals will touch Obama, and truthfully I’m not sure it matters. The damage is done. The Tea Party movement has been jumped started again and no matter where each of these scandals takes us the administration will struggle to advance their agenda through congress.
The IRS scandal appears to be the one that is gaining the most traction. I believe there are two reasons for this. The first reason is the IRS is the one agency that most Americans are extremely leery of because of the power it wields and the potential negative impact it can have on each of us. This leads us into the second reason the scandal is gaining traction. People can relate to it because it touches all of our lives. No one likes a bully and right now the IRS is the biggest bully in Washington D.C. And in my opinion this is the scandal the Obama administration needs to worry about the most because as the layers of this onion get peeled back it will get worse. The more revealing the abuse becomes the more people will connect the dots and see that absolute power corrupts absolutely. And that’s what Tea Party activists have been saying all along. The irony is the same entity that sought to silence their voice is the one that will give legitimacy to their argument. Oh what a tangled web we weave…. Now on to the LINKs.
Below are links to outstanding articles by conservative/libertarian bloggers. Please take some time today to check them out and when you are there hit their tip jars if they have them. These fine people are the ones who kept writing about these scandals when the MSM turned a blind eye to them. So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the links.
