Regardless of how one feels about the policies of the Obama Administration, no one no matter how big a fan is going to accuse these folks of being competent in the administration of government. The last four and half years are littered with the inept attempts to manage energy, invest in solar energy companies, use leverage to obtain policy concessions or even state a coherent policy on entitlements and debt.

Why no cover-up? Because there was nothing to cover up. No crimes, no malfeasance, no embarrassing sexual escapades. Just a failure to provide adequate security at an embassy and a failure to communicate.

from memory the news media needs something, and so a false scandal will do
until the next thing comes along. That
may be the IRS issue, because that is something that is at least comprehensible
to most Americans, and the failure of the President to get mad, fire a bunch of
people and show he knows how to actually operate the levers of government will
just contribute to the mess.
Nice going Democrats, your incompetence is about the only thing that will allow Republicans to win contested elections.
