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.
