I'm not sure I can adequately describe how I feel this morning. I feel shame for my federal government... I mean Benghazi, IRS, AP phone records all hitting full blown scandal levels and all it is in DC is CYA. New e-mail releases are out today and show the State Department's move in message, so that one's not going away any time soon. The 'acting' head of the IRS (How conveneint that they play that up now) has been relieved of duties and the president is expressing outrage. And as far as the Associated Press phone records scandal goes, Attorney General Eric Holder is sidestepping accuations. Doesn't it seem we have no real leaders right now?
I see it where I live everyday... when it's time for a decision, no one steps up. Really a bunch of passive aggressive BS and then most people just roll over and throw up their hands. Eventhough a person has the title, when someone within their purview makes a mistake or commits an infraction on purpose, the 'leader' feigns ignorance or claims the action was of a rogue employee. Whatever happened to stepping up and accepting blame? I mena we're all human and that means mistakes are inherant in our DNA. I doubt there's ever been a country in history that's so willing to forgive and foget... take for instance the re-election of Mark Sanford in the Carolinas... take for instance that Anthony Weiner is expected to run for mayor of NYC... I could go on and on, but this country is clearly willing to forgive past transgressions. Given that, why do politicians play the game of redirect and deny? I imagine citizens would be much more likely to trust our 'leaders' if they came clean when they made mistakes and promised to do better in the future. I know the federal government is a huge operation, but doesn't the president have czars that run parts of it? Keep tabs on them and they keep tabs on their staff and it should run smoother than it is right now.
The problems start when people do things they know aren't right and then go into spin mode.... I hate spin mode.
