Coincidentally, right after the election we heard that Iran had attacked a U.S. drone in international waters.
Coincidentally, we just learned that . . .
. . . new food stamp numbers were "delayed" and that millions more became recipients in the months before the election
Coincidentally, we now learn that Obama's plan of letting tax rates increase for the "fat cat" 2 percent who make up $250,000 a year would not even add enough new revenue to cover 10 percent of the annual deficit. How he would get the other 90 percent in cuts, we are never told.
Coincidentally, we now learn that the vaunted Dream Act would at most cover only about 10 percent to 20 percent of illegal immigrants. As part of the bargain, does Obama have a post-election un-Dream Act to deport the other 80 percent who do not qualify since either they just arrived in America, are not working, or not in school or the military, are on public assistance, or have a criminal record?
Coincidentally, now that the election is over, the scandal over the killings of Americans in Libya seems warranted due to the abject failure to heed pleas for more security before the attack and assistance during it. And the scandal is about more than just the cover-up of fabricating an absurd myth of protestors made over the 2-month-old video -- just happening to show up on the anniversary of 9/11 with machine guns and rockets.
. . . .
But the strangest "coincidentally" of all is the bizarre resignation of American hero Gen. David Petraeus from the CIA just three days after the election -- apparently due to a long-investigated extramarital affair with a sort of court biographer and her spat with a woman she perceived as a romantic rival.
