Second Presidential terms are notoriously difficult, scandal riddled and a stage for staged events, but whose?
Goolsbee was apparently privy to insider tax information that could have been handed to him from former IRS administrator, Steven Miller. Republican David Camp of the Ways and Means Committee said of Miller's Congessional hearings appearance, "The arrogance of the IRS came across."
Olvope countered "Yes, Mr. Miller could not have been a better actor for painting a picture of an uppity overreaching administration which is deserving of citizen ire, fear and loathing."
"Steven Miller's father was a Washington insider?" I asked.
"Steven Miller's mother and father are a mystery to me," said Olvope.
Olvope noted that the other fine actor in the spectacle was Debra Hall Ingram. According to Townhall's Carol Platt Liebau "Ingram is a 1979 graduate of Yale and a 1982 graduate of Georgetown Law."
The "Business Plot" as the Butler incident has been called, included high profile U.S. corporate leaders including Harvey Firestone, the DuPonts, Charles Lindberg, John Burroughs, Henry Ford and even Prescott Bush and the father of John Kerry's wife, founder of the Heinz ketchup fortune. "It's all a marvelous act.....a charade.....a carnival show.....like the one that Henry Paulson pulled off or that George W. Bush, George Tenet and Colin Powell used to bamboozle the American people into an unnecessary war in Iraq....only this one smells even more like a dead skunk on an Alabama highway in June. As George Herbert Walker Bush learned when he raised taxes and lost his Presidency, smaller government is better when that government sucks," said Olvope. "Still, George lost to Bill Clinton who was as much a shill for the Order as Obama," said Olvope who concluded, "there is only one Order and it's a real bitch having evolved minimally from a cobra."
"The bottom line is that whatever chess board moves are being carried out, in the end it is not the players at the chess table who will lose....the top Republicans' or Democrats' pawns, knights and rooks will fall....the drama troupe acting out the underlying script......but the American people in the peanut gallery who are watching in helpless awe, they really take a whippin'" said Olvope. "Bend over friends, because you will feel the fangs much less in the fleshy part of your buttocks."
