Regardless what you think about Fast & Furious, Benghazi, the Susan Rice promotion, NSA, the IRS EPA and USFWS targeting conservative groups, the outright lie of “workplace violence” at Fort Hood, Solyndra, Fiskar, runaway foodstamp fraud, cronyism run amok, or the Department of Justice monitoring the phone lines of the Associated Press, what is not up for debate is the outright abandonment of accountability by Barak Obama’s administration.
Within this unique experiment in self-government based on the premise of accountability to We the People, disastrously today there is no accountability. WTF! OMG! Are you kidding me? Surely you jest. None. Zippo. Zero. Nada. Zilch. Forget about it. Achtung MoFo. What, me worry?
Take it from an old musher, band leader, head of productive accountable household, and lifetime risk-taking job creator, the fundamental rule of leadership is: the pace of the pack is set by the lead dog. Woof.
Though tragically suspicious, we still don’t know definitively the level of presidential involvement in any of these scandals, what we do know is that there has been a blatant weazling out of accountability and zero transparency in the Obama administration. That is clearly Mr. Obama’s fault.
The supposed lead dog has clearly failed the America people by appointing and hiring people who have no character, integrity, honesty or accountability genes. They have displayed the characteristics of brazen Chicago political bandits rather than humble public servants. The Acorn doesn’t fall far from the toxic tree in the Windy City.
My written assaults against the president have been limited to his policies, agenda and people who he appointed. I have referred to his agenda as socialistic, anti-free market and Marxist. I stand by all that.
The evidence is gagging.
No more. It’s time to name names.
It is past time for Attorney General Eric Holder and the Commissioner of the IRS to be fired and prosecuted for gross and irresponsible mismanagement of their departments. The president shouldn’t ask for their resignations. He should simply fire them. Tomorrow. Publicly.
If the president fails to fire Mr. Holder, his Attorney General will continue to be a heavy and burdensome weight who will ultimately drag the president down to his level.
Failing to fire the head of the IRS and all of the senior staff who knew about or at the very least should have known about the targeting of conservative groups will demonstrate to the American public that the president cares more about his political appointments than doing what is right by the American public.
While the president attempts to deflect the heat of Benghazi as a “political sideshow,” there are many Americans and congressmen who simply want the facts and truth of what happened, how it happened, who knew what, who said what, who did what and how it should have been prevented. There are many questions that need to be answered – questions the president may know the answer to.
A thorough and public Congressional investigation of the Benghazi nightmare needs to be performed. Regardless how high the responsibility goes, officials need to be put under oath and grilled until the truth comes out. The American people are owed the truth just as we were owed the truth in the Watergate break-in.
When first elected, the president had no public or private management experience. His lack of experience has been an albatross around his neck that he either has no ability to learn from or simply refuses to.
The sharks are now swimming circles around the president. They smell blood in the water. Things are not going to get any easier for the president until he holds people, some who are close to him, accountable.
Accountability is a core tenant of a leader. As the leader of a musical band of roustabouts, the buck always stops with me. I am ultimately responsible for everything. Which of course is why my music and concerts are superhuman.
The American people should pay very close attention to what Mr. Obama does, not what he says. The lead dog sets the pace. Failing to set the correct and appropriate pace will find the president in a dog-eat-dog fight that he won’t win.
