How many times must we see this movie before realizing that the ending never changes? Act one: An Obama Administration official is found to be incompetent, grossly negligent, or caught blatantly and arrogantly lying to the American people.

Act two: Media and pundits express their outrage and proclaim that the guilty official’s head will surely roll. Confidently, they predict that it is only a matter of time before [fill in the blank] is forced to resign.

Act three: The scandal gradually falls off the media and the public’s radar. The once thought to be doomed Administration official remains on the government payroll, is moved to another position or simply continues on as if nothing ever happened without consequence. No accountability. We all move on.

Talk about deja vu all over again, Kathleen Sebelius is the latest in the growing list of Obama Administration officials who when caught wrongdoing simply politically give the American people the finger. The roll-out of Obamacare has been a disaster.

Arrogantly, Sebelius has refused to accept responsibility for her gross incompetence, even attempting to pass the blame on to the public and Republicans. Further poking her finger in our eye, Sebelius boldly announced that she does not work for We The People.

Please allow me to refresh your memory about a few earlier arrogant Obama Administration untouchables.

Eric Holder – Scandal: Fast and Furious. Obama’s Attorney General got caught lying to congress about the administration’s ATF gun-walking scandal, Fast and Furious. For weeks, pundits declared that Holder was toast, toxic for the Administration and Obama must force him to resign. Today, Holder’s job is secure as ever. Apparently, Fast and Furious and Holder’s blatant cover-up lie was only a figment of our imagination.

Hillary Clinton – Scandal: Benghazi. Under Hillary’s watch as secretary of state our ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens and three staffers were killed during a terrorist attack on our consulate. During the attack, calls for help were denied. Today, over a year later, witnesses are afraid to speak and the Administration continues to stonewall the investigation.

Meanwhile, Hillary is being positioned to run for the White House in 2016.

Masters of exploiting shallow surface impressions, the Democrats will anoint Hillary as their presidential nominee. Just as Democrats and the media declares anyone opposing any Obama agenda item a racist, anyone opposing president Clinton’s agenda will be high-tech lynched; accused of being a sexist.

Lois Lerner – Scandal: IRS. At the center of the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal, Lerner retired due to an internal investigation which found her guilty of “neglect of duties.” Ms. Lerner’s penalty falls far short of proper punishment for her crimes. This woman corrupted the electoral process, impacting the outcome of the presidential election by stifling the Tea Party.

Emails have exposed that Lois Lerner lied and was directly involved in targeting Tea Party groups.
