If it was possible for Barack Obama to be re-elected… would he? With all the scandals that have been uncovered recently, I’m not so sure.
Nearly every key Obama Administration agency has shown its true colors, with the IRS and EPA illegally targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny, the Department of Homeland Security failing to explain why it’s buying up hundreds of millions of bullets, the Department of Justice spying on reporters, and the National Security Agency recording the phone calls and emails of law-abiding citizens.
Not to mention what appears to have been a cover-up on the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans. We still haven’t heard the end of that one, and hopefully someone will be able to get at the truth so that the blame can be placed where it rightly belongs.
One of the reasons that Obama would have had a more difficult time getting re-elected is because even some of his staunchest supporters have become sickened by the lack of transparency in an administration that promised to be the most transparent administration ever.
Among those who have soured on the president are liberal Hollywood types such as Michael Moore and John Cusack. After the NSA spying was revealed, Cusack reportedly tweeted that “Obama is becoming the next Nixon,” while Moore tweeted, “The administration has now lost all credibility.”
Now, liberals such as Cusack and Moore would probably never have voted for a Republican or Libertarian candidate for president, but perhaps if the election had been held this year, they might have stayed home in disgust. And if enough people had done that in 2012, maybe we would have seen some real “change” and had some real “hope.”
How many scandals do you think it’s going to take before those who gave this administration another four years with their votes are going to own up to the fact that they made a mistake? What more has to happen before people figure out that we’re headed in the wrong direction? I hope to get your input on this.
