Re: Now we know what it takes to be fired by this government

So let me ask you -- the intelligent, American citizen -- a question. Do you believe the President is fixing problems? Do you believe people are being held accountable?
Why did hundreds of guns go to Mexico? And why did Attorney General Holder not know about it? He didn't know about the ill-conceived under cover program? We don't know why he didn't know.
Who was responsible for the lax security in Libya? And what was discussed at the White House meeting the day before the American ambassador was murdered? We don't know.
Who in the White House was involved with the IRS unfairly scrutinizing conservatives? I don't know.
And who exactly in the Obama administration failed to properly supervise the rollout of Obamacare? Again, I don't know.
Now, maybe I'm dim, unable to see how federal people who make mistakes are being held accountable. Maybe I simply do not understand what getting to the bottom of things really is or maybe I understand too well. That the White House will not own up to the Obamacare chaos or anything else.
It is clear President Obama well understands that he can say a whole bunch of stuff but doesn't really have to act on any of it while caring people like me, for example, burn when things go wrong Mr. Obama is much more passive about incompetence. He seems unwilling to demand standards of performance.
As -- and you know why he gets away with it? Do you know why he gets away with it? Because many Americans, perhaps most, really don't care how their country is being run. The only time they do pay attention is when they are directly affected. So American guns flown into Mexico it doesn't really affect them. Neither does the assassination of four Americans in Libya. Neither do illegal actions by the IRS.
But on Obamacare, the story might be different because millions of Americans are having their health insurance cancelled and millions of us will have to pay a lot more in order to protect our health.
Once that dawns on the folks maybe, maybe, Mr. Obama will begin to take some problem solving action. Because, without public pressure, no one is going to be held accountable and nothing is going to be revealed. The Obama administration simply floats above it all. And a generally hapless media does not demand answers.
And when on the rare occasion it does, the press is accused of being unfair, ideological or just plain dumb. There comes a point in history when people get what they deserve. President Obama was elected twice even though most problems besetting the country, including the soft economy, have not improved.
The President was not elected on performance. He was elected on personality and apathy. Low information voters don't -- who don't know anything and really couldn't care less about their country broke heavily for the President. Why? Because they like him -- he's a likable guy. And ironically, those voters are now being held accountable as Obamacare descends into chaos.
