We now know why our President did not want to discuss what happened at Benghazi before the election. We also now know why Hillary Clinton was in hiding in South America. They were AWOL on the night our Ambassador and three other Americans were killed.

As low as ones opinion may be of Obama and Clinton, few thought that the two of them were off in a hot tub somewhere having a little party. Of course, we do not know what they were actually doing that evening because they continue to stonewall us on the entire issue. One thing we now know because of testimony last week is they were not actively following the action. That may be why we did not see any nifty photos like we did after the killing of Osama.

This is follows on the heels of our column last week. The press should be ashamed of how it has handled this issue. A pliant press that genuflects at the altar of a left-wing President endangers all of us as much as the weak leadership of the officials. They should hand in the credentials in shame.

Our soon-to-be Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, has a fascinating resume. He started as a Legislative aide in Washington at the age of 27. Six years later he became the principle domestic policy adviser to the-then Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill. Only in Washington would someone gain such “wisdom” in six years working as a staff person to garner such a lofty position.

No wonder people say 23 years later, he is intellectually arrogant. He was like Yoda -- so young. He’s arrogance is such that he is taking a job for which Hazel at the Coffee Shop has more experience. At least she has some business experience. She probably has to bank her own customers. But he did attend Harvard. That is good enough in the Obama Administration.

Speaking of cabinet members (important ones), how does someone with such a thin resume as Chuck Hagel get to be nominated as Defense Secretary? Are we that void of leadership in this country? Really what was Obama thinking? Are there any grownups in the Democratic Party who can tell the President to pull this nomination for the sake of the country?

I received an update on our worker’s compensation policy due to a new California law. The good news is that both sleeping disorders and sexual dysfunction will no longer be considered for permanent disability under worker’s comp. However, temporary disability and medical treatment will still be payable. And people say we are whacky in California.

What I don’t understand is that if you look at a woman cross-eyed you can be charged with sexual harassment, but sexual dysfunction is covered by worker’s comp. You can’t win for losing.
