We are in a sense, Save Jerseyans, but no thanks to the Obama Administration…

There’s been a lot of finger pointing, feigned outrage and umbrella delegating at the White House this week, Save Jerseyans. What we haven’t heard? Someone stepping up and taking responsibility. Truman said “the buck stops here.” 1600 Pennsylvania’s current occupant doesn’t seem to agree.
In case you’ve forgotten, Save Jerseyans, here’s what real leadership looks like:
Well, the first IRS scandal fall boy is on the unemployment line tonight: the agency’s acting commissioner was forced to resign early Wednesday evening.
It’d be neat and easy to dismiss it all as an isolated incident, my friends. Sadly it’s not. Far from it.
h/t Cato Institute for breaking it down:
So what’s to be done?
As is typically case in these situations, Save Jerseyans, the answer isn’t complicated. Just hard…
Every single day, we find out even more about how they lied to us concerning what happened on September 12, 2012 in Benghazi.
They forced gun dealers to sell guns to Mexican drug cartels. And tried to blame it on the dealers before someone blew the whistle.
In 2012, they told us they only wanted to raise taxes on millionaires. In 2013, every single paycheck in America got smaller, not just the millionaires’.
For two years, they said the IRS was not targeting groups that disagreed with them. Until earlier this week, we found that is exactly what the IRS was doing…
2013 is starting to look eerily similar to 1973, Save Jerseyans. President Obama’s scandals are piling up fast and furiously (pardon the pun), and the latest revelations make Richard Nixon look like a choir boy. Hope and change are giving way to increasingly bipartisan calls for congressional hearings.
I think Lou Dobbs captured the sentiments of this President’s detractors (and many of his disillusioned supporters) earlier Monday after the President’s IRS presser:
Let’s just try to be smart about this, folks.
Opposition parties rarely affect positive change through impeachment hearings. What we can do constructively in the face of rampant corruption and abuse of power is use the House’s tremendous oversight powers to shine a light on this Administration’s many, many sins ahead of the critical November 2014 elections; that’s how Teddy Kennedy & co. cooked Nixon’s goose long before articles of impeachment became a real possibility.
Don’t let your emotions get in the way of the greater good, conservatives… focus!
Back in 2010 when the Christie Administration was brand new, conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh wondered aloud whether “it was wrong to love another man” because he loved the New Jersey Governor. Now the bloom is completely off the rose, Save Jerseyans. And I doubt that plant will ever flower again.
El Rushbo took Chris Christie to task on Monday afternoon’s program after the Guv appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and strongly defended Barack Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy:
RUSH: Six months after Hurricane Sandy, thousands of people are still homeless, looters are still raiding homes under repair, there is still chaos, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is saying that President Obama kept every promise he made after Hurricane Sandy. So those of you suffering, it must be your own fault.
RUSH: So six months after Hurricane Sandy thousands of people are still homeless; looters are still raiding homes under repair; people still don’t have electricity; people’s homes still haven’t been rebuilt. And yet the governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, says that Obama kept every promise that he made. Kept every promise. So there’s a lesson here. If you are a public official, governor, for example, and a weather disaster happens where you live, whatever you do, suck up to the nearest bunch of liberals you can find, and the media will love you, and whatever goes wrong will not be blamed on you. Just amazing.
Take a deep breath, Save Jerseyans, but Governor Chris Christie appeared on this morning’s “Morning Joe” program on MSNBC and continued his full-throated defense of President Barack Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy.
“The president has kept every promise he’s made,” said Christie. “I think he’s done a good job. He kept his word.”
Whether that’s true or not depends upon whom you ask, doesn’t it?
Tens of thousands of Americans are still homeless in the New Jersey and New York region several months after the so-called superstorm left our shores. I recently pointed out here at Save Jersey how only a fraction of the funds that were supposed to be released by now under the Sandy federal relief package have been disbursed; meanwhile, while the White House cancels tours and clogs airport traffic to score sequestration political points, the President continues to waste enough money on personal vacations to rebuild every damaged boardwalk several times over. Some examples are even more egregious; federal aid was denied to Ocean Grove’s boardwalk on ideological grounds!
Don’t think it’s going unnoticed. Among those most closely affected by Sandy, dissatisfaction with the government’s general response is growing as weeks turn into months and key problems remain entirely unaddressed by federal officials…
You don’t see something like this every day, Save Jerseyans, but it happened at Thursday’s dedication of the Bush Center in Dallas, Texas.
