SCANDALS: Fish rot from the head down

Why are so many Americans depressed these days?

While there are a number of reasons such as the employment situation, the immigration problem, the scary prospect of more terrorist attacks similar to what happened in Boston, etc., among other things, there is also the feeling that we are not being told the truth by our government.

The IRS has been targeting conservative political groups, the Justice Department has been listening in on peoples’ phone conversations without getting permission to do so first, and, above all, the great majority of the people do not think we have been honestly been informed about the events in Benghazi that cost the lives of four Americans.

If is the key word here, but “if” it is proven that President Obama has lied to us about what actually occurred, he should be impeached and removed from office.

In a recent interview, former Solicitor General Theodore Olson observed: “Fish rot from the head down.” And, unfortunately, there seem to be a lot of fish swimming around this administration.
