Skip to comments.Drudge Report editor slams Obama's 3-step scandal formula
Posted on 05/25/2014 5:34:06 AM PDT by jimbo123
According to Drudge Report editor, Joseph Curl, whether the scandal is allowing veterans to languish and die unattended, Benghazi, Obamacare, running guns, targeting conservatives, spying, or "trolling phone records of the media," the Obama scandal strategy kicks in almost before the crisis hits the banner of the Drudge Report, On Wednesday, Curl described what he considers the three-part Obama scandal formula in his Washington Times column.
"Each time Obama is faced with a scandal, he does three things," Curl explained. No matter the crisis, President Obama, first goes public, telling Americans "that he just didn't know," and expresses his outrage.
Secondly, Obama deflects blame, however vaguely to his predecessor, former President George Bush. Finally, according to Curl, Obama throws up a barrier to any future direct questions regarding the crisis by burying it under a "mass of bureaucratic red tape."
This third step is most effective, Curl observes, because once the matter is under a "blue ribbon investigation," it allows the White House and the president to dodge questions by expressing their regret that they cannot discuss it while under investigation. Most important, the investigation buys months, maybe even years, of time to allow the issue to fade in the court of public opinion.

Step four, the MSM drops it instead of doggedly persuing, like Watergate.
Four days of Chris Cristie scandal equals one month of VA scandal in terms of hours on the air and most don’t see the bias. Both are equally compelling, emotionally. One gets 7.5 times the coverage.
This guy is classic malignant narcissism. He’s a poster child!
Yes, and with the help of our Self Serving, Do Nothing “representatives” - it works Every time.
That's not good enough. as president its responsibility to know to be told, to have people around him who will keep him informed..
Secondly, Obama deflects blame, however vaguely to his predecessor, former President George Bush
THE BUCK STOPS HERE
Finally, according to Curl, Obama throws up a barrier to any future direct questions regarding the crisis by burying it under a "mass of bureaucratic red tape."
"Out, damned spot.."
Step Six: RINOs appoint Deadend Darrell Issa to hold hearings on the scandals to ensure criminal charges are never filed.
When you’ve got no character, no conscience, no backbone, and your religion tells you its OK to lie to the infidel, avoiding blame is pretty easy.
I didn’t realize Curl worked for Drudge.
Something else that both parties and the MSM do including FOX NEWS- They immediately make the conversation over whether the head of the agency in question shoud be “fired”
Like Sebelius, Shinseki etc... Or they make it about Lois Lerner...It is not about these individuals. It is about BIG GOVERNMRNT CORRUPTION and ineptness.
It is about INTENTION. Everything Clown Prince nobama does is intentional...much is criminal.
The most crucial point.
The trick to media propaganda isn't the way that stories are presented, but which stories are presented.
The writer must listen to Rush.
I heard a rumor that Obama is actually a Republican whose goal is to destroy the Democrat party.
In view of all the scandals that have occurred since Mr. Obama took office,ask yourself how likely it is that he “didn’t know” about it in each & every case before it was news.
That's because, the job of today's media, like the stenographers in Alice's courtroom trial, is to just copy down verbatim everything the royal highness [sic] proclaims as absolute truth.
Trey Gowdy exposed them for what they are last October, when he proved their malignant incuriousness about everything this Administration has been doing.
I really liked that movie. Great rants by Howard Beale.
Hey Obama, since everything is "Bush's fault" and after 6 years in office you have not been able to fix these problems, why don't you just RESIGN and let Bush take over and clean up the mess?
In 1965 at the start of the War On Poverty there were about 20 million blacks comrising less than 11% of the population.
Today there are roughly 45 million blacks in America comprising about 14% of the population.
Over, the last 50 years, the government has spent more than $16 trillion dollars on The War On Poverty.
Four days of Chris Cristie scandal equals one month of VA scandal
The leftist media virtually ignores the needless deaths of honorable people at Benghazi and in VA hospitals, but it is ready to provide saturation news coverage of a traffic scandal for weeks on end.
The media is a disgrace.
I'll give Obama and O'Baxter the benefit of the doubt, and say Obama cares. I don't buy the crocodile tears, though. Obama cares more about himself, and his legacy than he cares about the dead veterans he caused. Given though, that he cares, what's left is complete incompetence. It may be that he cannot be impeached for incompetence, but he certainly can be accused of it.
"What buck? No one told me about a buck. The buck never got here. I was shocked when I first heard about the buck on TV. Bush must have taken the buck." - Barry H. Obama
Hitler maintained plausible deniability by appointing officials who were committed to his vision and would act accordingly. So it is with the Zero. He has appointed an army of True Believers who carry out the vision of the Puppet Master. Obama deliberately avoids knowledge of the details of everything. He does not attend briefings, vital meetings or any other venue in which government policy is designed. This level of activity is left to his faithful lapdogs and comissars. Obama designs politics. The article is spot on and is pure Trotsky.
He forgot the “suggest racist” you always have to have the “suggest racist” step...
BHO to the American people.......”whoever is running this country is really messing with “YOU and ME.” “And because I am the POTUS I am going to make the previous POTUS responsible because he is a Republican and demand a thorough investigation of the IRS, CIA, STATE DEPT, ATF, NSA, HHS, VA, and BLM.”
