Ethics and the Man from Hawaii

Victor Davis Hanson has a new article on The Obama Administration’s Ethics Problem. The Hillary Clinton section  alone is worth the price of admission:

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton left office with American foreign policy in shambles. She has been unable to make the argument that a single initiative — reset with Russia, lead from behind in Libya, red lines on Syria, deadlines to Iran, complete withdrawal from Iraq, pressure on the Israelis, outreach to radical Islam and Latin American Communist dictatorships — had met with success.

Clinton infamously dismissed the lingering mysteries surrounding the Benghazi deaths with “What difference at this point does it make?” She also refused, despite numerous entreaties, to place the now-infamous Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram on a State Department terrorist watch list.
He touches on most of the Obamethics incidents. It's a pretty impressive list when you read it all in one place.

If I had to pick, I'd say the IRS scandal is the most egregious . Using the government to punish political "enemies" should bring special shame. But these are the guys who proudly locked WWII vets out of their memorial; like Cartman, they do what they want.

Is it any wonder Democrats are playing the race card? They have no shame and they have precious few accomplishments, but they've always got that race card.  Look for them to discover another Republican "war on women" as the election gets closer and the race card gets stale.

The Obama Regime has no ethics problem! Ethics or the lack of them is only a problem or potential problem to people who believe there exists such a thing as "Ethics".
