‘Phony Scandals’ Distract From Economic Progress Says Obama…

What Are You Hiding, Barack?

Five years after he was first elected in the midst of an economic downturn, President Richard Milhous Obama redirected his focus today….on how to improve the economy.

Despite how the Obama stimulus didn’t really stimulate those “shovel ready” jobs we were promised, and how his crowning achievement, ObamaCare, has weighed down any economic growth, Obama proved once again he cannot take the blame for his failures.

Instead, he decided to lay the blame at Republicans in Congress for focusing on “phony scandals.” (Katie Pavlich – Townhall)

“With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball.  And I am here to say this needs to stop.  Short-term thinking and stale debates are not what this moment requires.  Our focus must be on the basic economic issues that the matter most to you – the people we represent,” Obama said.

Funny, I’m not sure the IRS targeting American citizens (with the help of one of Obama’s political appointees) for political purposes or four dead Americans killed in Benghazi count as “phony” but hey, “what difference, at this point, does it make?” And speaking of distractions, apparently taking the time to personally call pro-abortion Wendy Davis, Sandra Fluke and the first openly gay NBA player Jason Collins while opining on local crime cases, playing golf and going on numerous vacations doesn’t count when it comes to deflecting attention away from anything but the disastrous and stagnant economy.

IRS, Benghazi as “phony scandals,” Mr. Obama?…
