It was to be a government of hope and change, truth and transparency.
We all heard the speech and we heard the promises.
But, quickly the problems were blamed on the inherited, terrible economy. Soon after, the screw-ups and scandals were the fault of George Bush. Next it was those greedy insurance companies, the doctors and hospitals that caused the Obama administration force the Affordable Health Care Act on us.
Now, it is Benghazi and "what difference does it make" and the IRS scandal that went on for two years before our president learned of it. And, suddenly, the AP and Fox News are under investigation because of leaks.
Barack Obama looks at his teleprompter and it says "I will get to the bottom of this."
Mr. President, it shouldn't be a long journey. Your administration has been scraping the bottom for almost five years.
