ONE WAY TO HOLD POLITICIANS ACCOUNTABLE

(Mar. 7, 2013) — In my hypothetical Washington, DC, the traffic moves along faster than believable. Why, even in the side streets, the neighborhoods, the residential zones, the speed limit is posted at a “modest” 55mph, whereas any street with a stoplight it’s 70. In the history of the area there have been no traffic accidents and not even a pedestrian’s been honked at. There are no collision repair facilities because none are needed. The snow removal crew is beyond phenomenal, and the proof is that Reagan has never had a flight delay due to a buildup of snow on the tarmac, taxi and runways.
Sounds a little too farfetched? Then try this on for size: getting back to the fantasy Washington, everyone tells the truth, no mincing words, none of this “that statement is no longer operative,” or “I might’ve misspoken” when a quick rewind to the day before would catch him in an outright lie.
In America, we have “Politician Schools,” commonly referred to as a “Law School.” All of the schools, naturally, compete for students to be tutored on “How to Pass the Bar Exam within Three Attempts.” There are many required courses, but perhaps the most important one is usually glossed over, and that course is appropriately named “The Art of the Non-Answer.” The best Law Schools excel in the “Non-Answer” class, and they proudly display their alumni reaching great heights: Presidents, members of Congress, the Cabinet, and, as expected, the Judiciary.
In the make-believe Washington, when the Administration was asked about the four Americans murdered in Benghazi, the answer was “Well, looks like the de facto clown of a president just wanted the Infidels to die, what more do you want?”
Asked about getting reelected, the response would be, “Well now, I’m glad you brought that up because it’s been bothering me. You see, the truth of the matter is that Obama didn’t win the election; the count was forged by unscrupulous, dishonest, lying Marxists who hold no regard for our Constitution, although they meant well.”
Here’s the thing. We’ve been letting these Sleazeballs slide when they don’t answer our questions. Let me ask you this: Let’s say you’re the Big Cheese of a company and you ask one of your employees a question about an area that person is responsible for. Wouldn’t you expect to hear the truth instead of fabricated, scripted lies? And if he still wouldn’t answer truthfully, if you got the runaround, delaying tactic, they’d get a pink slip.
Well, we don’t have a fantasy Washington; we’re stuck with the real one, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some new rules. I suggest that whenever we believe a politician has lied (and that includes ALL government employees), they can be cattle-prodded into a room with reporters and given a lie detector test. Imagine the room is filled to capacity and Jay Carney is all strapped-up and ready to answer any and all questions. The first question you’d ask him would be, “Who denied the help that Ambassador Stevens was pleading for?” or maybe “WHERE’S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?”
