Every presidential administration tries to put a positive spin on events. However, the Obama administration has no respect for the truth, the American people or the news media.
There are many examples. One of the architects of Obamacare talked about them depending on the stupidity of the American people. President Obama repeatedly lied when he said we could keep our doctor and our insurance. The White House tried to explain the Benghazi attack as a demonstration. Demonstrators don’t have assault rifles, mortars and rocket-propelled grenade.
Now we have another story about their deceptions and their arrogance. In an interview Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes seemed to brag about how they could get a naïve press to say anything they wanted. He talked disdainfully about their youth and inexperience. They put forward the story that negotiations began on the Iran treaty when moderates won an election. That was an out and out lie.
I would like to think things will improve with the next administration. Given who is running, I think it will only get worse.
