Hide your irony meters, folks. Oliver North, who exists as a public figure only because he carried out a secret plot to sell weapons to terrorists, lied about it, tried to cover it up and was convicted of multiple felonies for it, says that President Obama is “capable of obscuring, obfuscating, covering up, like nothing I’ve ever seen.”
North said there are several issues that should have been investigated thoroughly.
“I know that if you convene a select committee, they will get to the bottom of it. … Why the dickens haven’t we convened a select committee to investigate Benghazi, the IRS enemies list, spying on Americans, threatening reporters?”
He said Washington Republicans also have lacked leadership on some issues.
“My concern is if they don’t appoint a select committee to investigate these high crimes we will never get to the bottom of it. … This crowd is capable of obscuring, obfuscating, covering up, like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”
The absence of leadership in Washington is creating major problems, unlike when Ronald Reagan was in the White House, said North, who currently is the host of “War Stories with Oliver North” on Fox News Channel.
“We need him; we need a president like that. We currently have what I described this morning when I was addressing this great group as a ‘leadership deficit disorder’ in Washington, D.C.”
Someone get the Guiness Book of World Records on the phone. And the EPA to make sure this cesspool of chutzpah isn’t a threat to the environment.
