Obama’s Triple Crown of Scandals, Plus Gun Control Helped Kill Her Husband-Today on The Teri O’Brien Show, 5-19-13

There will be no Triple Crown winner, but we do have a troika of Obama scandals, all of which were in the news this week. This morning on CNN, a gleeful Jessica “Barack Just Smiled at Me!” Yellin, celebrated their latest poll, which shows that these messy questions about unethical, or even illegal, behavior by members of his administration has not diminished the endless love the American people have for the Dear Leader. She’d fit right in in North Korea. Some, including the members of the House Ways and Means Committee, who held a hearing last week about the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups, are less enamored. Former Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, who recently decided to move his previously scheduled exit to his cushy retirement up by a couple of weeks, responded to requests to know who initiated this policy with shoulder-shrugging, bored evasiveness. His demeanor said “Whatever. I don’t really care what happened. Let’s get this over with.” He couldn’t say. He didn’t know. He didn’t remember. Cue The Carpenters. This has only just begun. What do we know after this hearing? Some Republicans are opening talking “impeachment,” but is that really helpful? Is “scandal” really an agenda, especially when we learned last week that the House is close to a deal on “comprehensive immigration reform?” Short answer: no.

In response to the revelations about the 12 revisions of the Benghazi talking points, the White House decided to play along and pretend that they really are “the most transparent administration in history.” What was in these emails, and more, important, what wasn’t?

This week’s designated White House mouthpiece, the inarticulate Dan Pfeiffer, appearing as if he’s making a hostage tape, recites his memorized lies about both Benghazi and the IRS scandals. It’s no surprising that he would embarrass him yet again. Remember one of his greatest hits, involving that bust of Winston Churchill?

Plus, a very special 2nd Amendment Update, featuring Nicole Goeser, whose life changed forever on April 2, 2009, when her husband was murdered right before her and dozens of other people at a Nashville bar. How did gun control laws enable this brutal crime? How did it stop Nicole from possibly saving her husband’s life?

Tune in today for the rest of the story.

Obama Affordable Care Act “Trainwreck” Derails Max Baucus’ Re-Election

As we discussed on last Sunday’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, last week while questioning Sec. of Health and Human Services, Kathleen “Nurse Ratchet” Sebelius, Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) demonstrated that he is afflicted with a bizarre form of amnesia. How else can we explain that the author of Obamacare was suddenly predicting that it would be a “train wreck,” a fact that was obvious before this scheme was enacted? Oh wait …he’s up for re-election in 2014. Or he was. Apparently he has seen the handwriting on the wall. From The Hill:

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) is retiring, a source has told The Hill.

The longtime chairman of the Senate’s tax-writing panel faced a difficult reelection contest in Montana, a state easily won by Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election.

It wasn’t just the ACA train wreck, as the Hill story notes:

Baucus also has made several votes against his party in recent weeks, including voting against the Senate Democratic budget and legislation tightening background checks on gun purchases.

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC), a prominent liberal advocacy group, bought a series of newspaper ads in Montana over the weekend attacking Baucus for his gun vote.

He was angered this week by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) decision to bring an online sales tax bill directly to the Senate floor for a vote rather than first having it go through Finance. Baucus opposes the legislation. …

Baucus joins four other Democratic senators who have announced they won’t seek reelection in 2014, including Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Jay Rockefeller (W. Va.), Tom Harkin (Iowa) and Carl Levin (Mich.).

 

Granted we have a long time until November 2014, but it’s looking good for the GOP, provided that they don’t manage to screw it up somehow, like say by supporting amnesty for illegal aliens.

 

 

Susan “Obama Mouthpiece” Rice’s Willful Ignorance: Show Notes, 11/18/12

David “Howdy Doody” Gregory shocked that anyone might think that the Obama regime might withhold information or even lie to burnish its national security credentials. Sen. Lindsay Graham takes it to him, and to the One.

Barack and Michelle celebrate the demise of the Twinkie.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) refers to Petraeus affair by saying “mistakes were made.” Is it because he’s a man that he considers it a “mistake” when people can’t keep their pants on?

Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan) replies “that’s not the issue.” He also says that Petraeus never allowed the release of classified or sensitive national security information. Really?

Mitt Romney was not wrong about the democrat party and its appeal to the takers, but his response was LAME. He should talk to a man who should be a GOP rising star is born on Meet the Press, Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), who echoes me by noting that Mitt Romney tried speaking conservatism as a second language.

Possible gigs for which Barack Obama might be actually qualified (hint: Ryan Seacrest deserves a vacation.)
