It's all about the next campaign

The Justice Department is used by Barack Obama and his allies for political gain, destroying the integrity of our democratic process. He taunts those who rile him with the prospect of an IRS audit while expanding the IRS employment ranks with more examiners. He places his chief political strategist next to him in the White House.  His speeches sound like campaign rhetoric.

Bush is off the stage so how long can the finger pointing and blame continue? He demonizes opponents. He rewards political allies with vast amounts of taxpayer dollars via changes in laws and regulations, bailouts and faux-stimulus bills. He uses the White House media apparatus not just to inform the American people but to get the media to do his bidding. He gins up faux employment numbers (the never before used "jobs saved" figure) to project an aura of success.

He plans his stimulus tour for political gain. He calls on his cavalry of foot soldiers to plan efforts to strong arm his way into the second term  (this was before he convened his first and only Cabinet meeting). He chooses his Cabinet members, and first Supreme Court pick, based not on  quality or  intellectual diversity but towards pleasing electoral blocs. He tries to bring the census into the confines of the White House. He expresses a desire to add millions of likely Democrat voters to the voter rolls via accelerating the legalization of illegal aliens.

The litany of efforts, fair and mostly foul, to win the next election can and will continue in the years ahead.

The nitty gritty of governing and listening to and dealing with Republicans - as promised in the last campaign is thrown under the bus because it is much more enjoyable to make teleprompter-dependent speeches around the world to the adoring millions - especially when the President bashes America and praises our adversaries and rivals.

It is so much more enjoyable to bask in the radiance of one's own aura, heightened by a Obama-besotted media. But gutting the laws which the President is duty bound to enforce by the Constitution? Where is the outrage?
