I’m not understanding the question of the timing. It was a Friday, and the other shoe dropped today. This is unquestionably the best timing to deliver “bad news”.
Let’s get paranoid for a minute. Why would the Administration through the IRS announce a new scandal/misconduct on Friday and then the next day?
Simple! They’ve gotten burned badly on the Benghazi coverups because of the caliber of the witnesses who testified Wedneday, plus the devastating comments of the parents of several of those killed by the terrorists.
It was beginning to effect even liberals/media so the White House decided to offer up something smaller and potentially less costly in order to deflect or derail more Benghazi hearings which could rip the lid off of the whole debacle.
The Navy used to sacrifice PT Boats, Destroyer Escorts and even Destroyers in order to save Merchant ships, the heavy ships and Aircraft carriers.
Obama is doing the same in order to save himself and the White House from a direct torpedo-namedS”CANDAL” hit.
If I were Obama, Jarrett and Axelrod, I’d do the very same thing to deflect a potentially impeachable conclusion about Benghazi (”High crimes and misdemeanors”).
Obama, Hillary, Dempsey (if he was then head of JCS), and Panetta were all either AWOL (aka desertion), or criminally negligent in what they did and DID NOT DO.
A terrorist attack is the legal equivalent of an “act of war” so wartime condition rules would apply to the above.
Impeachment is the only way to hold Obama accountable and he/his clique will do anything (as will the Democrat Party), to see that another Bill Clinton affair doesn’t happen.
PUT NOTHING PAST THE DEMOCRATS. THEY ARE THE MOST IMMORAL, CORRUPT AND POLITICALLY ABITIOUS POLITICAL GROUP IN THE HISTORY OF THE US, AND THEY WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO OBRTAIN AND HOLD THAT POWER.
