President Barack Obama is starting to crumble away. He seems to enjoy multiple layers of protection and insulation when it comes to bearing any blame or responsibility for the many scandals which are currently engulfing his administration.
His methodology is very simple — deny, deflect, dodge, distract, demonize, destroy. And he does it so well. Practice does make perfect. To hear his constant denials on anything potentially damaging to his presidency, I seriously wonder how this detached president can possibly lead and govern this country?
It certainly doesn't hurt him that the bedazzled mainstream media bolster him unconditionally by fawning and refusing to hold him accountable.
But the fortunes may be slowly turning. The shields and barriers Obama has enjoyed may be weakening.
Democrats, especially ones running in 2014, will be facing enormous fallout when the truth and reality of Obamacare set in. Loyalty to Obama will certainly be trumped by political self-survival.
Thanks to the dogged resolve of Sen. Lindsey Graham, Rep. Trey Gowdy and others, the details of Benghazi (which the Obama administration has so desperately tried to hide) may finally be brought to light. That could be damaging. And, finally, as the IRS scandal deepens and the reality of criminal prosecution begins to stare the minions and underlings in the face, the administration's house of cards may tumble.
Shoes will drop, canaries will sing and rats will flee the ship in droves.
