White House Chicago Politics

Dorothy Rabinowitz back in October wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal where she compared Obama to a character played by Walter Matthau in the 1967 film “A Guide for the Married Man.” The Matthau character followed this rule, “Deny! Deny! Deny!”—no matter what.

In the movie, Matthau is caught in bed with another woman by his wife. When his wife asked, “Who is that woman?” His response, “What woman, where?” Despite the obvious infidelity, Matthau continued his denial his wife gives up and his sex mate leaves. Two minutes later his asking him what he’d like for dinner as if nothing happened.

Whenever there is bad news or inconsistencies in what Obama does or says, he denies any culpability. He blames others for his administrations failures. This is Chicago politics on the national level. Other administrations have tried to conceal or lie about their failures or gaffs but this White House has made it a policy.

Now we have three scandals which have entrapped the White House because the lies have multiplied. We have the spying on Associated Press reporters, the targeting of conservation Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service and the worst one of all, the failure to provide adequate security in Benghazi or to rescue Ambassador Stevens and his bodyguard from what was obviously a terror attack.

I reported on this blog that money was not the issue for security in Benghazi. Security in Benghazi was not a priority according to Eric Nordstrom in testimony before the House Committee, “So when I requested resources, when I requested assets, instead of supporting those assets, I was criticized.” The priority for the State Department was the “Energy Efficiency Sweep of Europe” initiative. Hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars were spent on electric cars and electric charging stations at various U.S. Embassies. So the claim by the White House and some Democrats that money was the issue was a total lie.

To put this into perspective, if you read my blog about “Black Hawk Down & Steven’s Assassination: The Connection,” you see that the Bill Clinton’s White House failed to provide US forces with the armor vehicles they requested for operating in Mogadishu. In that instant, it caused more casualties than the four killed in Libya. So both Bill and Hillary Clinton made fatal decisions that caused Americans to lose their lives. Hillary’s decision about Benghazi security, records show she was aware it was a terror attack, can be shown through her denial of culpability when she said before the House Committee, “Why does it matter?” Her utter disregard for the deaths of four Americans demonstrated she follows the Chicago rule of denial.  It adds to the layer of lies that have characterized the Obama Administration.
