Doyle McManus‘ Nov. 16 column (“Can Obama’s presidency be saved?”) has a patently absurd statement. He compared the “lame duck” sessions of Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan with President Obama’s and noted that Clinton and Reagan had to deal with scandals — Monica Lewinsky and Iran-Contra. Obama, McManus claims, “doesn’t have a scandal to apologize for.”
True enough. President Obama has several scandals that he would need to apologize for if he had the integrity to have them investigated.
Between Eric Holder and Valerie Jarrett, his handlers have managed to defer “Fast and Furious,” the unlawful eavesdropping of journalist James Rosen (who just happens to represent Fox News), the NSA scandal, the IRS scandal, Benghazi and other lesser-known questionable activities long enough for the mainstream media to classify them as unimportant.
Saving Obama’s presidency is meaningless compared to the more important task of saving and preserving the U.S. Constitution and, more importantly, enforcing it. The American public expressed itself on Election Day. The Obama presidency began its painful implosion the day he took office, and his legacy will go down as the least effective and most divisive administration in U.S. history.
