Last Thursday a U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee subpoenaed White House documents related to the Solyndra scandal, that would shed further light on the deliberations to give even more tax money to the failing business. Among the items subpoenaed were the visitor logs to the White House that would reveal whether there was an all-too-cozy relationship between Solyndra executives and the Obama administration. Obama refused to release these materials. His reason? He said that it was partisan politics and the subcommittee was comprised of a majority of Republicans. Therefore, he would not turn over the documents legally demanded of him. How convenient.
So, the pseudo-President has set a precedent. If we disagree with the rule of law, or know that the enforcement of the law is in the hands of a party we dislike, we can now ignore the law! Excellent! I know of a number of laws (and politicians) I dislike. I think I will ignore them. I may be an independent and dislike both Republicans and Demoncrats. I will ignore everything! After all, the phony in the White House can do it. Why not us? In fact, I don't even need to acknowledge others in authority. Obama will now become "N.M.P." Not My President. After all, I didn't vote for him, and it's obvious he doesn't represent me. Why recognize him at all?
The fact is that we are supposed to be a nation of laws. Everyone from the highest office to the lowest alien is bound by that law. We may not agree with the tactics of others, nor their agenda. But the law is the law. Obama must comply. What will he do? Who knows? After all, he currently has Eric Holder lying on the stand about Fast and Furious, and refusing to apologize for his complicity in slaughtering a U.S. Border Patrol agent (not to mention hundreds of others). He will probably ignore the law as though he is above it. If he is above the law, he is N.M.P.
