Can we stop with the kindergarten politics?

June 16, 2014

The IRS has Lost Lois Lerner’s emails. Are we shocked and amazed? Does anyone even  believe this latest attempt to avoid blame?

Not unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock for the last twenty years.

Reconstructing a hard drive isn’t unheard of, but really, does the administration think we don’t know about automatic server back-ups?  How about subpoenaing those?

Little kids at kindergarten age and below hide the results of their misbehavior. Break Mommy’s favorite dish?  Hide the pieces in your closet or sneak them into the trash. Whee! Everything’s OK. Mommy will never notice the dish is missing, and she won’t ever go near your closet.

Only she does notice, she does go into your closet, and you get in trouble. Lie often enough and get caught and pretty soon, Mommy doesn’t believe anything you say.

Grownups aren’t supposed to act like that.

The only thing this clumsy attempt at concealment accomplishes is to make it likely that there is something really damaging on that hard drive and in those emails.

Little kids get caught in their lies because they do them so badly.

This is an administration that seems to be living in the world of a kindergartner. Unicorns and rainbows don’t make for smart politics or safe nations.

Al Qaeda isn’t dead, the ACA isn’t providing the best and cheapest healthcare, the IRS is being used as a political weapon, veterans are dying under the VA’s care or lack thereof, gas doesn’t have to cost $5.00 a gallon, and our enemies will end our world a lot faster than climate change.

That’s the big boy world where most of us live.

Living in a kindergarten world is fine for five-year olds. It’s not so great for an American president.

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a
    very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant
    for me to come here and visit more often. Did you
    hire out a designer to create your theme? Fantastic work!

    • No, it’s a standard WP theme. As a freelance business writer, I tend to select things that emphasize the message, not compete with it.
