Are you too picking up on the widening Obama administration pattern here of mismanagement, incompetence, no accountability and completely wasted taxpayer money?
We are from The Government and We are here to Help You… :)
Yet another government audit out Wednesday, this one dissecting last fall’s ObamaCare roll-out debacle. Everyone except Obama, he claims, knew about it instantly on Oct. 1 when the half-billion dollar website collapsed, over and over, after three years of development, as in 36 months.
The new report from the nonpartisan General Accounting Office blames systemic problems such as poor planning, lack of follow-up, ineffective oversight and chaotic coordination. Expenses for the website alone stand at $840 million — and that was last March!
“As the cost of the (website) closes in on a billion dollars,” House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Fred Upton said, “even to this day the system is not fully built.” GoDaddy.com could have done it for much less.
But ObamaCare is just the latest failure. Remember that awful Benghazi night of 9/11/12 when the president was somewhere unknown while four poor Americans died at the hands of a terrorist mob with zero rescue effort attempted?
The Accountability Review Board that investigated that scandal without talking to the woman in charge that night, Hillary Clinton, found systemic failures of management, planning and oversight by the Obama administration crew. But no one was held accountable.
Remember the IRS scandal where high-handed agents illegally targeted Obama’s political opponents and even religious groups for audits and long-term hassles? If these were rogue agents, as Democrats claim, they were rogues who reported regularly to higher-up politicos in Washington during the 2012 campaign. But, wouldn’t you know, all of their computers coincidentally crashed, swallowing many incriminating emails.
Obama runs the White House as such a tight ship that his own lawyer just down the hall neglected to inform her boss of the unfolding political scandal, he claims.
Remember the Veterans Administration scandal? That’s where an unknown number of vets died for lack of timely medical care, workers forged false schedules and accounts to protect their performance bonuses and Obama’s pick, a combat veteran who ran the entire Army, could not figure it out.
VA problems are long-standing. In fact, Obama ran on a promise to fix them seven years ago. But last spring he professed ignorance until CNN’s exposes gained media traction. Now, Obama’s turned to a veteran of corporate wars to attempt reforms.
Obama was off in Kansas City yesterday at another pep rally, mocking House Republicans as his go-to excuse for government paralysis. That doesn’t explain Obama’s first two years when Republicans controlled zip and Democrats couldn’t spend a trillion in stimulus money so it created millions of promised jobs.
At the more than 400 fundraisers that Obama does run efficiently, he dismisses these systemic administration failures as phony scandals. But a growing number of investigative agencies within the federal government seem to disagree.
Obama’s serial scandals and his tardy, begrudging responses inevitably blaming others are fast creating the image of Democrats as the folks who can win the White House but can’t run anything once they’re in. Obama can only have Osama bin Laden killed once.
More importantly, the Obama administration’s chronic pratfalls raise serious questions about the viability of his vaunted welfare state where big government takes on more concerns and responsibilities with more regulations, taxes and spending.
Maybe all this will teach American voters not to elect as the nation’s leader an inexperienced, unvetted rookie legislator who hadn’t managed a lemonade stand.
But then, looking at the choice they could have made for president in 2012, maybe not. (IBD)
So here’s a fright f0or 2016 for you…
Somebody actually put this on their car and may have officially invented vision pollution in the process. Be Afraid…
