Petraeus CIA Scanal Amazingly kept under radar during election. Genius!

 Funny how this mega scandal was held under wraps until after the 2012 election.  I don't know if it would have made any difference in the outcome but it makes me suspicious of the media agenda.  How could this have been so hush hush for so long during the election campaign?  I have to guess that the media was in the tank for Obama again during this election as they were in 2008.  I find it hard to believe that democrats are not even suspicious of the media at this point.

However, you have to admit that the political machine of the Obama administration is very good.  They were able to keep this story completely out of the public eye during the campaign.  It is also hard to believe that this would not have caused a major outcry regarding the recent embassy bombings.   With such major scandal going on at the CIA, how could it be possible that the effectiveness of the agency was not altered in some way?  I don't have the answers to this question but it is clear that we no longer live in the free country we claim.  The government and banking industry have teamed up to take control of massive amounts of wealth that previously belonged middle America.  Now the government has taken control of the media as well or at least formed a partnership between the democratic ruling elite and the media.  How else could such a titillating story be kept from the public eye.  You know any outlet would have by crazy over running this story in 2008 prior to the election.  It would have been a hit against the administration but not this year.  It was another free pass given to the Obama team.  It is as if we have seen such drastic improvement over the past 4 years that the media decided it would team up with the government to give us 4 more years of the same.  We will not see anything that will reflect poorly on the president of the next 4 years regardless of the situation.  We have given the Obama administration a free 8 year pass.  It is as if we have come to accept that it is impossible for change to happen in Washington.  The country has opted for looking progressive over making progress.   It makes little sense to the people who have suffered the most from the quasi banking/government partnership that has lead to the down fall of the American dream.

The dream now has become one of hope and change.  However, it is one of false hope and little change.  American has come to accept stagnation and even reversal of progress for the appearance of being the country of freedom.

The reality is that we are losing more and more of the freedoms that were fought for during the Revolution.  It has nothing to do with race or prejudice and everything to do with lowered expectations and willingness to allow the country to become more and more divided between the haves and the have nots.  Why?  Because people fell for the spin that this President was one of the common folk.  Unfortunately, this could not be farther from the truth.  It has to be said he understands the media and he understands politics of being elected.  His team is very good at winning elections and very good at running a campaign.  No one can argue this point.  However, we need to see if they are as equally qualified to run the country.  For four years I have seen little evidence that the administration is as concerned about the people as it is about re-election.  Maybe now that re-election is a not an issue we will see things being done for the good of the people and the good of the country.
