I can’t help but believe the title to this post is so true. President Obama really is the luckiest President in the history of America. Imagine, if you will, what the reaction would have been if the scandal over CIA Director David Petraeus’s affair with Paula Broadwell had broken before the election. What if the scandal had already emerged to show the involvement of General John Allen’s involvement with Jill Kelley? If certain sources are correct, Attorney General Eric Holder knew about the Petraeus affair in September, but failed to tell the man who sits behind the desk in the Oval Office. How would that information have played in the public eye, had it been common knowledge?
As always, hindsight is 20-20. I’m not saying Mitt Romney would have defeated President Obama on November 6, had these scandals not been conveniently hidden until after the election. I am saying that Obama has to be wiping his brow and thinking about how closely he dodged the Petraeus/Broadwell/Allen/Kelley bullet. There is every indication that the scandals were purposefully kept quite until after the election, which could only serve the purpose of protecting Obama and his chances for reelection. Couple that with the obvious fact that David Petraeus is the one man who could have destroyed the Obama narrative about what happened in Benghazi and a more sinister picture begins to emerge.
