Those behind the scandals untouchable

Success - Article sent! close

I think I have finally figured out why no one in the Obama administration is held accountable for the egregious scandals -- at least those to date -- which have come about during his tenure. Obama apparently has promised them total loyalty in return for their total loyalty to him and his directives. Effectively, this means he asks no one to leave and they, in turn, remain and are still guaranteed all the financial benefits that accompany each position on into retirement.

In the few instances where someone has stepped down, look around the corner and see in what government capacity they are placed, again with significant benefits, after a little time has passed and the subject has quieted down. Do not overlook the fact that these scandals have been responsible for the many deaths of our citizens both here and abroad. Here are some that come to mind:

Fast and Furious gun running and Eric Holder. Untouchable.

Bengazi and Hillary Clinton and Obama himself. Untouchable.

Eric Shinseki and the VA scandal, which Obama has known about since 2007. Untouchable.

IRS targeting and Lois Lerner. Untouchable.

Five Taliban leaders exchanged for Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held for five years, yet Congress was not given the 30 days' notification demanded by law because of the "urgency" of the situation. Untouchable.

When questioned about the scandals mentioned, the administration cites that they are old news, racially motivated or political motivated. Perhaps the administration should take a look in the mirror. Other scandals are on the horizon. Watch. When the next scandal surfaces, Obama will express indignation and that the behavior is unacceptable, and, as president and commander in chief, he will get to the bottom of it. Just watch and then remember to vote.
