Obama treats whistleblowers as if they were enemies of the state
…But this is just part of a pattern by Barack Obama and his minions. He has, for example, had an ongoing war against Inspectors General the people’s first line of defense against executive branch chicanery , fraud, waste and abuse.
He has routinely retaliated against government employees who look out for taxpayers and citizens when their actions may embarrass him or harm his friends and political allies. He so disdains Inspectors General that he tried to set up a new 30 billion dollar program that , by design, would not have an Inspector General to monitor its activities.
This is the modus operandi of Barack Obama-a man who seems to revel in bullying those weaker than he while cravenly shrinking before those who might challenge him take your pick: Iran, Russia, China. He admitted he did not fight fair back in 2008 in one of his few honest utterances “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”. At least he was transparent then regarding his view that fair fights are not for him.
He believes in retaliation shades of Richard Nixon.Our president just does not like being graded he modestly gave himself a mere B+ back in 2009 — and those who might honestly judge his actions as the man in charge of the executive branch are taken out to the woodshed with slanderous comments broadcast publicly or worse — they lose their jobs.
The only people he finds acceptable to scrutinize him are his fawning pals in the media including National Public Radio. They grade him on a curve-just the way he likes it.These are not the actions that befit a man who holds the Presidency.And we will see more of the same in the years to come.
