One can call it by many names, so widespread and prevalent among a certain segment of society is this pernicious malady.
For now to be relatively current, let’s call it Weinsteinitis: the belief that anything one does is somehow forgivable and deserving of a full pass if one mouths the right Leftist platitudes. Caught red-handed and facing certain ruin, drowning Harvey desperately last-gasped something about hating the NRA and Trump in hopes of fighting off the Progresso locusts turning on him. Nothing one actually does or is matters if one just says the politically correct things. Or so he had come to believe. In his case, the old, trusty shield of PC just crumbled. Must be bigger game afoot for that crowd.
In the case of Barack Obama, one only has to BE a Leftist platitude, a “person of color,” to get away with anything. How else to explain the gumption, the chutzpah, the shamelessness, the license taken by one seedy slimeball sleaze from Delaware named Joe Biden to announce with a straight face: ” ‘I’ve served with eight presidents and I’ve gotten to know four of them very well. I’ve never met any president that has more character, more integrity, and more backbone than this guy does.’ Then he went completely off the rails when he absurdly added; ‘And eight years, not a hint — not a hint — of a scandal.‘ ”
It must be so if a US Senator and former VP says so. Then again, nothing wafting out of the Leftist universe really means a thing when history and “facts” must be repeatedly revised to keep fooling the fools who keep them afloat. Congenital liars like the Clintons and Obama and Biden are constantly “moving on.” Alas, those of us interested in the effects of bad ideas and worse consequences have not “moved on” and keep those disasters fully in mind while keeping to a worthy course. Real history matters.
To wit, a little bit of the “scandal-free” Obama years:
Barack’s ObamaCare. (One could stop right there, but it’s only the beginning.) Barack’s Iran Ransom “Deal” including his little intercession on Hezbollah’s behalf; Barack’s NON-intercession on behalf of murdered Iran protesters; Barack’s treatment of Netanyahu here and in Israel including tampering with Bibi’s re-election; Barack’s apologies and bowing; the Greenie Algoresque Solyndra, just the tip of Barack’s crony capitalist regime; Barack’s “Syrian” red line; Barack and Holder’s Fast and Furious; hounding Gibson Guitar; Holder’s DOJ targeting James Rosen; the Phoenix VA; Lois Lerner’s IRS hounding Barack’s political opponents; the Bergdahl-Guantanamo swap; Bill & Loretta’s “chance” tarmac meeting; Hillary’s Benghazi; Hillary’s Skolkovo “Reset;” Hillary’s Uranium I Deal; Hillary’s server & emails; Hillary’s Russian dossier and ongoing attendant farce; Hillary and Bill’s Clinton Foundation, rappers in Barack’s White House, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama, Barack Obama… the latter quartet a scandal in themselves.
One could go on and on. In fact, one could just “move on.” Let’s do that while keeping clearly in mind the nightmare that is possible when one Party successfully sells a platform of “fundamental American transformation.” This is also known as changing America from a constitutional republic based on freedom and individual rights to a centralized Marxist cesspool overseen by a Mafia Elite.
