My, my, my. Our Dear Leader, Barry O, seems to be treading in hostile territory. For months, the Conservative Puppet Choir in the Alternative Media have been saying Bengazi (and before that, Fast and Furious) are scandals of the first order and should be investigated in order to bring this Imperial President to heel.
He, surrounded by his toadies, sycophants and lackeys in the Mainstream Media, laughed and continued to raise funds and play golf.
Then something interesting happened. The press turned on him. And he is panicked.
By attacking the press – the AP phone Records Scandal – The President has created a permanently hostile media environment, especially inside the Beltway. By using the IRS to go after "enemies" the POTUS conjured the ghost of the Evil King Richard the I. And if you add Fast and Furious to Bengazi, you get an Obama Scandal-palooza that cycles 24 hours a day on every cable channel except ESPN.
What happens next to the Prezzy?
One way to predict the future is by throwing chicken bones against a wall and calling a Shaman to read the results. Since I’m both chicken-less and Shaman-less, I’ll have to do the math.
First, square all of those unfolding scandals by factoring in the Clinton side of the Democratic Part which hated Barry O from the beginning. They of course, would like to see him thrown under proverbial the bus with the rest of that Progressive trash he hangs around with. The retired Good King Bill probably realizes his wife's chances of becoming POTUS have shrunk to be statistically indistinguishable from ZERO because of this whole Obama-cloaked Bengazi catastrophe. He might decide to act accordingly and get even instead of getting mad. What the hell, both he and his wife’s pensions are covered.
Now, imagine if the party elders just did the same math that I just did; seeing Barry disappearing into a big Choom Cloud and bowing out gracefully might be the preferred course of action. They know that if this stink continues to reek for another 18 months, it will permeate the brand and poison their results in both 2014 and 2016. A Tea Party power sweep of both houses of Congress and the White House would give every Dem a fatal case of brain bubbles. While it might be fun to watch Chris Matthews' head collapse in real-time like a south Florida sinkhole, I don't think the grey beards of the party will allow it to happen.
No, Barry O has got to go, for the sake of the Party they’ll say. But he has to go in some way that won’t damage The Brand. Resignation for corruption is too Nixon-ian. Impeachment just airs dirty laundry and creates widespread collateral damage. No, there has to be a third way.
Prediction: The party finds a way to remove him from office for some sort of medical reason.
