Look to the Syrian debacle for an answer.

Who among us remembers the scandals that dominated much of the news and was the major subject for discussion by pundits for many weeks? Murders in Benghazi, an act of war, the IRS's abuse of office/power, the monitoring of AP reporters internal correspondence, the targeting of James Rosen, Fox News reporter, the improper taking of the 5th amendment by Lois Lerner, IRS senior officer....and oh yes, fast and furious gun running and more are of no interest.

I almost forgot, President Obama declared these to be "phony scandals,"  so they must be so..

Or, has the president's focus on Syria coincidentally taken the heat off the scandals? Perhaps coincidentally and serendipitously are synonymous. Or, even deliberate may be the same. Just thinking on paper.

More on Syria later today. The most mismanaged affair I've ever witnessed from a CEO, aka president.
