Should we expect anything else? A serpent will do what a serpent does ... it will not become a lion. We will have a press conference where we will hear the old familiar re-frains: "the international community", "grave concern", "serious consequences", "firm commitment" ... Then the serpent slides off to the next fund raiser, the next empty and deceitful speech, the next round of golf. A serpent will do what a serpent does ...
All this adds credence to the idea that Obama and the Democrats were and still are following the dictates of the "Never let a serious crisis go to waste ..." This began on September 11, 2001 with the terror attacks. Then the democrats waited for the circumstances to arise where they could demonize Bush/Cheney and make them the enemy in place of Osama bin Laden. The vilification of Bush continued and intensified throughout the two Bush terms, and set the stage for the appearance of the charismatic Obama. Once the Obama victory was in place, and especially the second term, the true leftist agenda could then be pursued regardless of past Obama/Democratic rhetoric and posturing.
Just a few of my thoughts and experiences at and about Occupy: http://ayearningforpublius.wordpress.com/2011/10/08/occupying-wall-street/ http://ayearningforpublius.wordpress.com/2011/10/08/why-labor-backs-occupy-wall-street-and-why-labor-is-wrong/ http://ayearningforpublius.wordpress.com/2012/03/07/occupy-new-haven/ http://ayearningforpublius.wordpress.com/2012/03/29/anarchythe-occupy-new-haven-federal-court-hearing/ http://ayearningforpublius.wordpress.com/2012/05/20/to-my-occupy-new-haven-friend-mick-the-marine/ And finally -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=317TZdW4YYQ&context=C41b5d00ADvjVQa1PpcFOW9p8LBtVhpjZuQvpushmSmkZ3jmIFdIw=
And this is why I had my UN Ambassador Tweet a strongly worded condemnation directly from her position on the throne in the ladies room from wherever the Hell she was.
I agree, Hillary is the most qualified and experienced person for the job, and is ready to complete the task. Hillary for Mayor -- of Detroit.
Yes, I do believe that most would still go-along ... It's been my experience that most folks, when confronted with wrong doings, will choose the path of least resistance and not rock their own personal boat. In other words, at the level of personal comfort zones, most are apolitical and will not speak out. I speak from the personal perspective of a whistle blower myself. But, Sean, I really do appreciate your remarks; keep it up.
Actually Sean, I think the problem is more basic than that. It is the basic human nature problem of "going-along-to-get-along mentality." Don't rock my boat ... don't get me involved in the politics, that many of us have experienced in any organization.

I've had my own personal experience with this Obama culture and politics of demonization. Though not an IRS audit, a close friend of 40 years chose to be among the first to accuse the Tea Party, and thus me, of being terrorists; and this to my face.
