Brit Hume on the Big Lesson of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP Scandals

Most on the Left will grudgingly admit that Big Government can go horribly wrong.  The histories of Russia, China, and North Korea are the extreme examples. But, the Left claims, Big Government can work well if the right people are in charge.

In America, those right people were ostensibly those that Obama chose for his version of Big Government.  As he himself proclaimed in 2008 to thunderous applause: “We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for!”

So how’s it working out?

Enter the Benghazi, IRS, and AP debacles. These are just our very first taste of what Big Government’s arrogance, incompetence, and tyranny will do to us all. As Brit Hume outlines in the 90-second video clip below, this is what “the ones we’ve been waiting for” have unintentionally shown us in the past 6 months.

Be assured that unless We the People somehow reverse the “progress” of the Left, the really painful lessons are yet to come.


Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.

Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.

Far from being the "right people", Obama and his gang aren't even as capable as past socialist cabals from other countries.  I suppose we should be grateful for their incompetence.  Think how much more damage they could have done (and be doing) if they were more competent!
