Presidente: Donde la verdad?
If it was rude for Congressman Joe Wilson to leap to his feet during your State of the Union speech and yell "You Lie!", how many others have bit their tongue?
The list grows.
What is equally rude and repetitively dishonest is the false impressions and inaccurate portrayal of events and conditions that seem to be endemic and intrinsic in the Obama world. These presentations of questionable integrity are systematically presented to large audiences and broadcasted to the under informed without rebuttal or inquiry.
As the song goes, "just cause you say it, don't make it so." Unfortunately about half the country does think it so.
Without knowledgeable interviewers and while playing to adoring audiences, the President continually escapes from scrutiny at the moment, and certainly in the media. Perhaps we need another 'impolite' event. If normal channels of polite inquisition are intentionally and rudely short circuited (i.e. the honest press conference) is that not impolite in itself?
It seems Obama's confusions are either intentional misdirection plays, or he is delusional, possessing only a cursory knowledge of what is really transpiring about him. Maybe if Axelrod and Jarett are your only sources of information, you do believe that Vladamir is a friend of the United States and Bush started Fast and Furious.
Regarding Fast and Furious, he again presents a false impression. Here are parts of the text of Obama's Univision forum, the questions and the Presidential responses. In Italics are the rebuttals that should have been.
"Moderator Question: Mr. President, you told me during an interview that you - Eric Holder or you did not authorize the Fast and Furious operation that allowed 2,000 weapons from the United States to Mexico, and they were in drug-trafficking hands. I think that up to 100 Mexicans might have died, and also American agent, Brian Terry. There's a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation. But shouldn't Attorney General Eric Holder
We must interrupt the President here. True, Bush did have a gun tracking program and that program was terminated in 2007. Fast and Furious began 9 months into your term as President.
We must again interrupt the President. Holder doesn't have any record as to when he actually learned of Fast and Furious so how can we determine if his learning of it immediately triggered its termination?
Clarification. You had one of your own people investigate a close confidant who is your personal appointee to office.
What? The program by design was allowing guns to get into the wrong hands!
And the question remains unanswered. "Who is the highest DOJ official to be aware of Fast and Furious?"
There are thousands of requested document still not released. Your use of the word "typical" suggests there were also "atypical" documents which were withheld. Why did you invoke executive privilege?
Ultimately responsible? So you are responsible? What is the impact of this responsibility burden you say you carry? Mistakes were made. Operations were bungled. Information has been blocked. What consequence awaits you for taking responsibility for this bad program and the stonewalling from your AG?
It was not independent. By your own admission you selected the inspector general. And your opinion if the report was honest or not, matters little.
The facts fly in the face of your scenario.
Per a MSNBC article, "
Mr. President. You and your Attorney General own Fast and Furious. La verdad, por favor.
