OBAMA: Why are top Cabinet members leaving?

Here we are just a few days beyond Barack Obama’s re-election, and already his Cabinet members appear to be leaving in droves. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder have said they are not keen on another term with Team Obama. And now David Petraeus has resigned as CIA director due to his own “unacceptable behavior” by engaging in an extramarital affair.

Clinton and Petraeus have been under investigation since the 9/11 attack in Benghazi. Holder has been held in contempt by Congress for his participation in the failed “Fast and Furious” debacle. What does this exodus mean? Could it be these three top-level Cabinet members need to get out of town before the hammer falls?

I personally will never understand why a rational, reasonably intelligent adult would even consider Obama for a second term. There have been too many cover-ups, excuses, government bailouts (of the wrong population), divisiveness, blame, deflection of responsibility, racism, apologies, arrogance and too many vacations involuntarily paid for by people like me.

I’ve already lost everything I spent my life working for during Obama’s first term, so I have nothing to lose except what’s left of my mind. I can only pray that those who voted for the fraud they call president will wake up soon, realize how they’ve been snookered and urge their representatives to begin impeachment proceedings immediately.
