What if all criminals could use the same hare-brained excuses as the Obama administration?

Everywhere you turn in the Obama administration, it seems, another high-level official has another excuse for why things have gotten completely out of control. “I know nothing!” seems to be the mantra of the executive branch these days, as if all these NSA surveillance programs, IRS targeting scandals, DHS ammo purchases and secret kill lists of American citizens somehow sprang into existence without anyone in the White House knowing about them.
“They went rogue” seems to be another excuse from the top. As if all the underlings running the IRS, NSA, TSA or other departments don’t take orders from their bosses. Apparently they just show up to work and dream up whatever jobs they want, all while collecting a fat government paycheck they clearly don’t deserve.
But my favorite excuse — and this one really takes the ticket — is the quote from the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. When explaining why he lied to Congress when he claimed that the phone calls of Americans were not being surveiled, he said he answered “in the least untruthful manner” possible.
In other words, he lied. But he made a real effort make sure that his lie was a “minimum” lie, and we should be grateful for that, right?
So I began to wonder: If the United States of America is a nation where all men are equal under the law, then why can’t common criminals use all the same excuses as the Obama administration? Why can’t a rapist show up in court and explain that he tried to rape his victim “in the least offensive manner possible?” Because that makes it all okay, you see, according to Obamalogic.
