Political Tempestuous Tornado About to Sweep Across America

Time and conditions have not changed anything in Washington D.C. these past forty years. In the 1970’s it was Water Gate and in this the second decade of the 21st century we have the Escape Gate.

Not much has really changed, it just seems to get worse. It doesn’t matter which political party is in power, they just find other ways to screw up a perfectly good constitution. The old song, 99 bottles of beer on the wall, ends with this old adage, same song, second verse, it doesn’t get better, but it just gets worse.

Then the second verse, 98 bottles of beer, and it starts over again and again until you quit or get sick of stupidity.

We have seen every administration make blunders and this administration of Obama is no different. Much like the Clinton administration that was riddled with scandals and topped off with his sexual escapades, this administration is leaking information like a rusted water pipe before it bursts.

If the pressure doesn’t build up to the point where it explodes the leak will create a pool of stink and mud that will create a new lake in Washington. This will make 6 great lakes, Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior and then a new one called Lake Inferior.

The leaks are serious in nature and could lead Obama to a shortened second term. The difference between Richard Nixon and this President is the media hated Nixon but the media loves this guy.

Why they love such a person who escapes most allegations with his innocent looks and a demeanor of, Gee I didn’t know? So far his escape methods are working but in time maybe even his disciples might see through that sparkling boyish demeanor.

How could most of these allegations and the evidences of wrong doing not be known by the heads of this administration?

People who are not aware of Illinois politics may be lead to believe Obama, but for those media people, who know the nature of politics in that state, they are intentionally ignoring what is happening in Washington..

The basic stages of failure or guilt are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. I have seen three of these stages in the current President. He is in constant denial and when caught it becomes anger and lately he attempts to use bargaining but the final two stages will follow as time creeps in on him.

My grandfather had a great adage about people who are fooled. You can fool some of the people some of the time and most of the people part of the time but you cannot fool all the people all of the time.

Wake up News Media’s and the see the baker of the wedding cake has covered a rotten poisonous cake with a frosting that displays taste but melts in the heat. It looks good and is pretty but you are still at the wedding party eating and drinking the marriage of your liberal groom to a straight laced and once conservative nation.

You are not paying attention to the events happening around you. The heat is on and you just stand around drinking champagne and eating cake and doing nothing? The dessert (cake) if we keep eating it will kill this nation and you won’t even warn the people not to eat? What stages of failure is the news media’s going through?

I think most of them are still in the denial stage. Maybe not Fox but, ABC, NBC and CBS cannot face up to the fact this administration is deep into political scandals and might end up in depression which could lead to political suicide.

The freedom of the press helped shape this nation and it is now doing nothing to help save it. We are on the brink of a great disaster. The sky isn’t falling, the water isn’t rising, but a political tempestuous tornado is about to sweep across this nation.

Will we be forewarned or ignored by the media and left to our own understaning about the pending dangers?

What will remain when the storm settles down? I am not sure but it will either be great or terrible, depending on your taste and opinion. Will we still be a free people or will we be chained to the yoke of bondage after the Tempest of our own making has cleared…
