Yesterday, however, I decided to watch CBS and Fox to get a comparison from their trademark Sunday political shows. I wanted to see how they were handling the burgeoning scandals of the White House which seem to be growing even bigger.
Much to my surprise, there was a fairly consistent approach by both CBS and Fox. Maybe this is just wishful thinking, but hopefully all of the networks are beginning to realize that their credibility, which is nearly nil, must be improved or they will continue to lose market share to the point where they won't be able to maintain a profitable operation.
First, a quick look at Fox. When Chris Wallace asked Dan Pfeiffer, Senior White House Adviser, where the President was during the night of Benghazi, he responded, "That's irrelevant." Pressed further, he even went so far as to say that the law was also "irrelevant". Really, Mr. Pfeiffer? Since when is the way the President spends his time during a deadly crisis not a concern of the public. Further, are you saying we are just a government of men and not laws. You need to do a better job of studying our Founding Fathers.
Moving to CBS, Bob Schieffer, not exactly a man who believes in small government or conservatism, also attacked on the issues of the day, saying that the Administration was clearly going beyond the means allowed for its actions involved IRS harassment of conservatives. Pfeiffer just continued to spout the Administration line that the President must devote his time and energy to what will restore the middle class. Again, Mr. Pfeiffer, really? What middle class? The Administration is effectively destroying it in the process of making a brown boot organization out of the tax collection agency.
The President and his minions in the White House just think they can keep avoiding the issues they have created; I think they truly believe that we Americans are accepting their lack of answers. Well, Mr. President, we don't. You are the President, everything your administration does has your approval. We know that and you are truly the one where the buck stops, not Hillary, not Panetta or now Hagel, not the past or present IRS commissioner.
You might try using Hillary's line, "What difference does it make?" But Mr. President, whether it's Benghazi, violating the 1st amendment going after the AP, letting your DHS Secretary illegally shake-down insurance companies for Obamacare start-up funds, lying about what happened at Benghazi,or violation of cnservative and pro-life rights by the IRS, it all belongs to you and you are accountable for it.
And Americans, we are responsible for keeping the pressure on to get the truth on all of these travesties and others that haven't yet been identified. We must insure that those who are guilty of violating citizen rights, even death, are appropriately punished through a valid lawful process. We have much work to do to achieve this end.
God be with us in this just cause.
