The Republican National Committee has put out a new ad titled, “From ‘Hope’ to Hypocrisy: Executive Privilege”, which has been perfectly timed as the contempt of Congress vote is set to take place on Thursday.
Remember Obama’s words?
Let me say it as simply as I can: Transparency and the rule of the law will be the touchstones of this presidency.
This is the same guy, when he was a U.S. Senator, that chided George W. Bush for invoking executive privilege. Now when his hind parts are on the line, what does he do? Does he seek to be transparent? Heck no he doesn’t. He does the exact same thing.
Barack Obama has promised to be something politicians are not considered to be, transparent. He claimed he would bring hope and change. He has attempted lofty rhetoric, at least in front of a teleprompter but has he actually produced anything good for America? Nope.
And now as his signature piece of legislation hangs in the balance of the Supreme Court, Barack Obama has asserted executive privilege in what Katie Pavlich of Townhall.com calls Obama’s “bloodiest scandal and its shameless cover-up.” He’s done this for one reason and one reason only and it isn’t to protect Attorney General Eric Holder. It’s to protect his own butt.
Far from men in our nation’s history who would actually take responsibility, this president only knows how to blame others. In particular he just can’t keep George W. Bush off his mind.
