Leonard Pitts is at it again. Now he is trivializing the scandals, three major ones: Benghazi, where the ambassador and three other Americans were murdered because the administration refused to send better security or to help once the attack had begun. There is the IRS in which law abiding Americans have been investigated and harassed by that agency, the FBI, and the ATF.
Add the Rosen affair in connection with which the Attorney General refused to explain to Congress his inconsistent testimony. Shucks, these are just another of the many scandals perpetrated by our government, which, this time involve attacks on innocent citizens. But, of course, Leonard says conservatives "start out with overstatement" regarding these. It was overstatement that we were alarmed that government-supported ACORN offered to help set up prostitution rings using under age immigrants as prostitutes.
"Death panels" are no big deal, even though the latest example of them was Kathleen Sebelius' refusal to let a 10-year-old girl get a lung transplant. All this is just "pixie dust" for Pitts. Then, in typical liberal fashion, he cites those most intelligent, well informed, wise products of our higher education establishments, college students. They, in their sage wisdom, garnered over probably four years or so in one of those bastions of Americanism, say that Republicans need to stop being "closed-minded, racist, rigid, old-fashioned." Hm, let's see. We just have to be OK with the murder of the unborn.
How dumb can we be? And we've got to stop being against changing America into Mexico. The "racist" accusation hardly seems fair, since it was Republicans battling the Democrats, in years past, for civil rights. But how dumb are we for thinking that marriage should be between a man and a woman? Boy, are we sick.
