(from full story "Alinsky smiling up at Obama over “Phony Scandals” line" at shoebat.com)
When Obama referred to “phony scandals”, he knew that he would be goading conservatives because the cover-up of Benghazi, the truth behind Operation Fast and Furious, and the IRS scandal all either implicate the Obama administration in murder or in using an arm of the U.S. Government to go after its enemies.
Instead of remaining silent in the face of Obama’s bald-faced attempts to “goad” and “guide” so as not to be “goaded” and “guided”, Republican operatives would best be served by calling out Obama for what he’s doing – using his hero’s playbook.
The way to deal with this is not to angrily react to his calculated use of the phrase “phony scandals”, nor is it to ignore it so as not to be goaded. The way to deal with this is to explain exactly why Obama made the political calculation that using the phrase “phony scandals” was a good idea.
