The Distraction

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin M @ 10:32 am

One of the basic rules of politics is that when your administration is failing domestically, you need to create an enemy.  Since Obama’s policies are deepening the recession, and his Obamacare proposal is going nowhere fast, it’s time for The Distraction.

Up to now, Obama has resisted his party’s call to prosecute Bush and the Republicans in general.  Expect this to end.  We are seeing the beginning of this attack with the recent “revelations” about some unnamed CIA program that was never mentioned to Congress.   The former CIA chief says it was too tiny to mention and never actually took off, so they didn’t bother Congress with it, but the Administration has decided to make a big issue out of it, and blame Cheney and by implication, Bush.

Now, today we are told that Eric Holder may open an inquiry on the Bush administration.  And so it begins.  I expect multiple Congressional and DoJ inquiries, with copious leaks to the state-run media throughout the run-up to the 2010 mid-terms.  And I expect The Distraction to work.

  1. Every minute they spend on a futile prosecution of Bush officials on a minute they can’t use to ram through a liberal program.

  3. Just remember Democrats, This is just precedent for what is going to happen to YOU! Book your tickets to Zimbabwe before Obama leaves office.

  4. It will only work with people like this one Obamaphile who went into “They want to tell people who they can marry, they want to tell women not to have abortions, they don’t want to give a chance to a black man to be President … Oooh, my brain hurts!” [I may have made up that very last part.]

  5. Or, maybe they’ll just hold show trials for “hoarders and wreckers.”
