The brilliant Dr. Ben Carson has written a scathing piece about the Obama administration’s failings for the National Review Online. He titled it “Unfit for office.” So that should tell you a little bit about the direction Dr. Carson was going to take article.
Dr. Carson focused in on two scandals in particular: the Benghazi Scandal and the IRS Scandal. For Dr. Carson both of these issues are emblematic of the problems inherent within the Obama administration. Both scandals reveal the heart of the Obama Presidency and its sinister underbelly.
The Benghazi scandal.
Mistakes were made – fine. We should want to figure out how and why these mistakes were made and what we can do to correct them. That is not what the Obama administration is doing.
This should not be a partisan issue, because the implications of ignoring or prevaricating about the underlying mistakes will have far-reaching consequences…
Making mistakes is part of being human, but the ever-increasing deception that is necessary to cover those mistakes when honesty is abandoned is evil. Those willing to ignore evil for political reasons should question their fitness for leadership of our nation. In this case, a blatant falsehood was promoted — namely that the Obama administration had international terrorist activity directed at America under control and that the Benghazi incident was a spontaneous action resulting from the outrage of locals who had viewed an offensive anti-Islamic video. Undue importance was placed on promoting an image of U.S. strength during the weeks immediately preceding the presidential election of 2012.
Again, I must emphasize that if we, the American people, the American press, and the American political class, participate in the cover-up or ignore such an important story, we contribute to the demise of honesty and truth as pillars of our governing structure. In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon put it this way: “If a ruler listens to lies, those who serve him will be wicked.”
The IRS Scandal.
Obviously something untoward happened at the IRS. The implications of a government agency targeting certain civilians for their political beliefs are terrifying… and the response to the scandal should have been immediate. We cannot allow this type of thing to happen in America because it puts all of our freedoms at risk. However, perhaps even more disgusting and dangerous is the way that Democrats have responded to the IRS Scandal.
