It wasn’t my original line, I wish it was. I heard a politician say it recently. “Sunshine is a great disinfectant.” I thought about this concept. How many times have people of note, politicians as well as others, gotten themselves into trouble by trying to hide facts from the public. It has been said over and over, “The crime is usually not as bad as the attempted cover up.”
some unknown reason people of note seem to forget that everything they
say or do is recorded by someone somewhere and that information is
readily available for all to see and hear. Their picture is being taken
every minute of every day. There are no secrets. When Phil Mickelson won
the Masters Golf Tournament, he took his family out to a local
hamburger joint for lunch. He happened to put on the “Green Jacket” he
was awarded for his Masters win. The lady at the restaurant took his
picture and posted it. Phil’s reaction? Everybody is press now.
tried in vain to cover up his criminal action as did Clinton and so
many others. It didn’t work. It never works. Today the Obama
administration is trying to cover up the “Fast and Furious” gun running
scheme. They are playing the “race card.” I believe they will try
anything. Guess what? It isn’t going to work. Eventually the facts will
come out for all the world to see. I am sure their primary effort for
now is just to delay the inevitable until after the election. They have a
good chance of pulling that off, but eventually the truth will be
known. The sun is going to shine on this and there will be clarity and
that clarity will serve to disinfect this ridiculous scheme.
remember my mother used to hang her wash out on the clothesline in the
sun. She believed the sun would take stains out. She always preferred
drying her laundry in the sunshine for its beneficial effect on her
activities absolutely must be public business. Attorney General
Holder’s attempting to withhold information from the Congress and the
American people serves only to make us all the more determined to
discover what they are trying to hide. Who knew what and when did they
know it? These are the simple questions that have plagued people of note
before and questions which have led to their downfalls. In the case of
this gun running scheme, people have been killed. Two have been law
enforcement agents. Who knows how many Mexicans have died because of
this ridiculous, amateur fiasco?
privilege is not automatic, even for Emperor Obama. When this
administration is sued, and they will be, a judge will review all the
documents being sought by the Congress. The judge will then decide if
they are in fact qualified for “executive privilege.” Embarrassment of
public officials is not a legitimate reason for the privilege. Hiding
criminal activity also is not a legitimate reason for privilege. In fact
there are only a very few actual legitimate reasons executive privilege
can be claimed.
simplest answer is to let the sun shine on this deal. Allow the facts
to be known. They’re going to come out sooner or later. If this is
nothing more than stupidity causing embarrassment, we will all just
laugh at you. If, however, criminal activity has been perpetrated,
prosecution will most surely follow. A president and an attorney general
should know better. This I know, this matter will see the light of the
sun and it will be disinfected and you can count on it.
