I’ve not blogged or read political articles for the last 3 weeks, for several reasons. One reason was that I got a little overwhelmed by (disgust at) the sheer volume of the Obama administration’s negligence and dishonesty, on issue after issue. You just can’t blog it all.
Well “I’m back”, presently scanning the last few days’ news on HotAir. There it is again! The sheer volume of Obama negligence and/or dishonesty. Any of these could make a blog post.
- Obama lying about the budget “sequester”, trying to panic people with a nightmare vision of the effects of its small – no, paltry – cuts to spending. Why would I use the word “lie”? Because even the left-leaning Washington Post can’t get behind Obama’s claims.
- Obama showing his great leadership on the sequester, asking a reporter “What exactly do you want me to do?“
- Donna Brazile scratching her head about why her health care premiums are going up, a result that most intellectually honest observers knew would have to come from the Obamacare bill.
- Bob Woodward saying what others confirm, even including Clinton stalwarts: that the Obama administration actively seeks to intimidate reporters.
What, only four items? Here’s a bonus: What happens to your city, when Democrats run it for generations?

“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” says one DC veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — bitch, c–t, a–hole.”…
UPDATE: WaPo upgrades one of Obama’s sequester lies from two Pinocchios (run-of-the-mill political lie) to four (indisputable, big lie).
