Assigned Reading: Richardson Probe ‘Was Killed in Washington’
(FROM: Fox News)
A big “thank you” to an America’s Right reader for bringing this to my attention. And though he is a fan of the Crimson Tide, he’s obviously a literate anomaly because he was able to actually read the article and compose the following e-mail to me:
Where are our priorities? We go after the CIA who kept us safe, but decide not to prosecute terrorists, political corruption, or illegal community organizers. Am I missing something? Can they seriously expect to get away with such blatant hypocrisy? Apparently they do.
Obviously, I’m joking around about Alabama fans and illiteracy. I’m an Auburn alum — I can’t help it. What is no laughing matter, however, is how important it is that we as concerned Americans of all walks of life–and college football allegiances–pay attention to what’s going on in Washington, D.C. The flunkies on Capitol Hill will only “get away with such blatant hypocrisy” if we let them. My new buddy here from northwestern Alabama is part of the solution, as he understands and makes the right connections when it comes to this administration’s politics as usual.
So far, besides deciding not to pursue an indictment of Gov. Bill Richardson for corruption, the Obama Justice Department has among other things dropped charges against Black Panthers wielding nightsticks and intimidating voters in Philadelphia, secured the release of terrorist detainees from Guantanamo Bay, quashed efforts by the state of Georgia to ensure that all voters are United States citizens and therefore able to vote, and most recently announced that it will investigate and possibly prosecute CIA officials with regard to what it deems questionable conduct in terrorist detainee interrogations which ultimately saved American lives.
This, from a president who campaigned on promises to fundamentally change the culture of corruption in Washington, D.C., only to stock his own cabinet with tax cheats and hire an ever-increasing number of “czars” who require neither an FBI clearance nor a congressional hearing and who report to nobody but the White House. This, from a president who, in 2007, gave a radio interview in which he promised to immediately task his Attorney General with an investigation of the Bush administration, only to just this spring say that he wanted to “look forward” instead of back, and just on Tuesday maintaining that Eric Holder is on his own and acting “independently.
At best, Barack Obama is a hypocrite of the worst order; at worst, he has absolutely no control over his administration. Either way, it certainly isn’t “change” anybody can believe in.
