Fox News reported this morning that a senior Republican congressional aide posed the following question to a Wall Street Journal reporter:  "Did Obama order former South African President (and one time Republican) Nelson Mandela killed to draw attention from the continued Fox News coverage of the disaster of Obamacare?"   The WSJ repeated the question in its on-line edition in a editorial page piece. The editorial page piece noted that if true, this would be one more attempted distraction in a long line of Obama distractions.    Clearly it has been asked and answered that: Obamacare was an attempt to distract from Benghazi.  And Benghazi was an attempt to distract from the Democrat-sponsored Shutdown, and that the the Democrat-sponsored Shutdown was an attempt to distract from a IRS-gate.  And that IRS-gate  was an attempt to distract from Obama's failure to pass a CommonSenseTM balanced budget.  And that a CommonSenseTM balanced budget could not be passed because Obamacare is ruining American, causing unemployment to rise, stopping JobCreatorsTM from hiring, and driving us off the cliff of a Mountain of Debt and into a Sea of Red Ink.  

In related news, House Oversight and Operations Committee Chairman Darrell Issa called for Congressional hearings today into the mysterious death of one-time Republican leader Nelson Mandela.  At a press conference early this afternoon, Committee Chair Issa asked the question: "Is Obama targeting Republican leaders in order to distract from the trainwreck that is Obamacare?"

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
