Your Wild and Crazy New Year
Well all of us who wanted that wild and crazy New Year, our Congress, and President surely have seen to it that we are off to a great start.
First topic that we will address today means more to the human species than perhaps anything else does. In fact, there are millions of citizens here in our great country that will openly argue the merits of lacking accountability. Furthermore, we believe that the current state of our nation’s economy and unemployment are just that. Other individuals who have the same notion of reality as expressed by our President Obama regarding illegal immigration (paraphrasing here). There are times when you don’t want to face it [immigration reform] and just let it go until the next day, when just as the others’ have done, you just want it to go away.
But as informed readers and frequent visitors of our site you no doubt understand our propensity with personal accountability. All one need to do is look down at the right sidebar where Milton Freidman’s quote graces our pages.
So why all the talk about personal responsibility and accountability?
Other than they are related entities within humankind, today was the first day that Barack Obama talking – Not as a President, rather like an ordinary common man – gave response to who, what, where, and above all what really happened in Benghazi, Libya.
Much to our chagrin the President pointed all of his fingers at the State Department whilst stating, that the “blame in the Report tells us that the command and control centers of the State Department were negligent…further stating that, there is a problem with accountability at the State Department.”
Why not tell us what we already know. Then the astute Shannon Bream of Fox News portends the notion that those “4 Individuals” who were allegedly either forced to retire or quit their positions was not the case as well.
Megyn Kelly communicating from New York confirmed these particulars with Mrs. Bream so we are finding following a report that a security chief said to have resigned in the wake of the Libya attack is still on the payroll, calling the response “pathetic.” Furthermore, the New York Post report claiming that Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, remains at the department — despite a State Department spokeswoman announcing Dec. 19 that he was resigning his position. According to the Post, Boswell is merely “switching desks.”
Fox News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt broke down the details of the fiscal cliff bill passed by Congress last night. The deal includes $620 billion in new tax hikes and $15 billion in spending cuts. Further broken down, that means $41 in taxes for every $1 in cuts.
Yet as for us the most telling and tragic situation comes from how Speaker Boehner closed the voting proceedings late. Without a word to anyone Rep. Boehner simply left the building and proceeded to his office; ostensibly he left no words on a much humane and coveted piece of legislation, some spending appropriations for victims of Super-storm Sandy.
Please treat yourselves to some video from just about everyone; however, we maintain that Fox News’ coverage was by far supreme and they were the first in.
