ON TARGET COMMENTARY

Ben, the Dirty Cat
The cat is out of the bag, and a dirty cat it is! Senior Obama advisor, Ben Rhodes, has admitted that he and others in the Obama Administration lied, deceived, mislead and hoodwinked the American people, the liberal lap-dog media, and the Congress of the United States – including Democrat legislators – concerning the nuclear deal with Iran.
Rhodes admitted to creating an “echo chamber” of supposed experts who put forth the party line of the administration, while suppressing any negative reports or opinions that might have put the deal in jeopardy. He arrogantly bragged of deceiving liberal members of the media, whom he regarded as useful fools.
An example of the deception was the idea that the administration was conducting its talks with moderate Iranian leaders who wanted peaceful relations with our country. The truth is that the negotiations were with hard line Iranian crazies who answered directly to the Mullahs and who, throughout the talks, showed contempt toward Secretary of State John Kerry, shouting at him and walking out whenever he said anything they didn’t like.
So desperate was President Obama for a deal with Iran that the Iranians were allowed to bully their way to a one-sided agreement that they have no intention of keeping anyway. The American people, the Congress, and the liberal lap dog media were fed a pack of lies to sell this pig of a deal as something beneficial to our interests.
Meanwhile, the Iranians are happily spending the 100-plus billion dollars we gave them on arms for terrorist groups across the world. They are also happily working on producing a nuclear weapon.
A group of Republican senators have called on the president to fire Rhodes but don’t hold your breath. After all, Eric Holder wasn’t fired over the “Fast and Furious” gun running scandal, John Koskinen wasn’t fired over the IRS targeting pf conservative and tea party groups, and Hilary Clinton wasn’t fired for the Benghazi cover-up.
When Obama was elected, we were promised the most transparent, honest, and ethical administration in the history of our nation. What we got was the most secretive, lying, and crooked administration in the history of our nation. We can only hope that this coming January will bring a change in the right direction.
