This Is No Ordinary Scandal
WSJ.com ^ | May 17,2013 | Peggy Noonan

Posted on 05/17/2013 3:27:17 AM PDT by Biggirl

We are in the midst of the worst Washington scandal since Watergate. The reputation of the Obama White House has, among conservatives, gone from sketchy to sinister, and, among liberals, from unsatisfying to dangerous. No one likes what they're seeing.

It is a scandal of epic proportions that is about to become an “old story” to the MSM

I had an idea for a heavy coat that has an inner lining that can be unzipped and allows you to put your legs in it. Sort of like a sleeping bag to keep the body heat inside.

Historians were screaming loud and clear on just “who” Obama was in 2008.

This is one of the best articles, worth the read:

“Yes... I am waiting for Jay Carney to come out and say that the scandal was so long ago.”

Well, Carney is just a talking head, a mouth piece for Obama. So, he himself is of no consequence. This IRS scandal is growing legs, and wings. Now it’s becoming clear that there is linkage to Obama Care and its becoming apparent how the pieces fit together. If the low information don’t “get this” then they are incapable of getting anything and the Republic is lost...

“Something big has shifted. The standing of the administration has changed.”

People are always stunned when the trusted priest, the jolly gent next door, or your son’s charming best friend turn out to be a molester, a murderer, a rapist. They wonder, how did this wonderful man do this awful thing? That’s just not him. Well, he was the molester, the murderer and the rapist all along. You just didn’t recognize it. Nothing has changed in this administration. Obama, or whatever his real name is, has always been somebody who hated America. He has always been somebody to whom power meant control. Now that he has power, he wants control.

Watergate was Richard Nixon’s taping of the Watergate hotel, during the elections.

Obamagate has eclipsed this by orders of magnitude. Wiretaps on 20 or more AP telephones, illegally recording more than 100 reporters, bugs in the Senate Cloak room, IRS political attacks against civilians, Benghazi and the murder of 4 americans (including our Ambassador), multiple lies to the people regarding the White House knowledge and response during this attack, assaults on the 2nd Amendment, illegal and intentional Gun Running to Mexican drug cartels, systematic destruction of the American Economy.

Nixon was impeached for just a fraction of what Obama has done.

But, I am racist for noticing.

Not if we support those that are using our system to correct itself instead of tearing down the effort to use our checks and balances to stop this crap. I despise peggy but I damn sure support this article. If all else fails then the revolution will come... and it will not be anything that any sane person should want.

———among conservatives, gone from sketchy to sinister-——

That needs to be sharpened up considerably to:

“among conservatives from disgusting to treacherously tyrannical”

Yeah. The WSJ editorial page isn't what it used to be.

My daughter won a 6-month free subscription to the Journal last year. In six months, I read more than the headlines, just three times.
