"Congressman Worries About 'Chilling Effect' of Scandal -- On IRS!"
Rep Elijah Cummings has the IQ of a bag of hair.
"Darrell Issa: Lois Lerner lost her rights"
Whoopee! Darrell Issa has grown a spine. Let Lois Lerner be the first chip that falls.
Could this be why Barry rolled out two other scandal in the same week? Wag that tail, little doggie.
Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.
Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow Gaddafi on the cheap.”
This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda – indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.
"Rubio vs. Cruz for GOP soul"
Two rabid dogs fighting over a scrap of rancid meat. Is there really going to be a winner?
Just for you Paule. Your role model speaks.
"Lois Lerner at House Hearing: “I Am Very Proud of the Work I Have Done in Government” (Then Pleads the Fifth)"
The irony is overwhelming.
ABC’s Cokie Roberts Acknowledges Obama’s Contempt for the Press, Blasts 'Presidential Propaganda'

"Only Nixon Harmed a Free Press More"
"The government's subpoena of The Associated Press's phone records was bad enough. But the disclosure of the search warrant in the Rosen case shows President Obama has delved into territory never before reached by previous presidents.
Until President Obama came into office, no one thought talking or e-mailing was not protected by the First Amendment.
The Justice Department obtained Rosen’s e-mail by using a search warrant in which it alleged that Rosen was a co-conspirator with a government adviser named Stephen Kim."
Well MD the LA Times must be really stupid, since they just printed this today.
The FBI and the Obama administration want expanded power, but they are applying 20th century assumptions about surveillance to 21st century technologies.
@paulejb If that is true when will he be joining the GOP? You guys seem to have an unnatural desire for stupid people of color.
Way near the bottom of the comments is our collection while we waited for you to chime in
@paulejb Good to see ole Darrell is prepared to tear up the Constitution for political gain.
Or it could be the CIA retaliating against State.
@sacredh Satan. He gets to fight the winner.
The Iraq war was a success until Barack Obama snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
@paulejb Gee I wonder where she learned that from Ollie North perhaps?
@paulejb And she is correct. But yet again its legal and the precedent has been established in the past. So perhaps she and the rest of the Press corp watchdogs should have kept a closer eye when Cheney and Yoo were rewriting the Constitution before our very eyes.
@paulejb All president's push the boundaries of power established by their predecessors. You have a problem with that than acknowledge the precedent set in the presidential power expansion of 2002-2004 was illegal.
Don't forget that GWB used the Patriot Act to basically intercept and monitor all phone lines. Republicans led the charge to give up the Bill fo Rights under GWB and then get upset when the same activities are used by the next president. Maybe Issa can do something that would be good and investiogate John Yoo for treason. Never happen, of course, because all Republicans are so damn holy!
@ahandout Yep you have precedent established by the last administration and now they are taking the logical next step to expand that precedent to technologies that were not in common use during the last administration's time in office. Yet again I'm not a fan, but it has precedent and has been proven to be legal.
A headline today:
paulie, that was your hero, George Bush2, who negotiated the treaty to leave Iraq. Can't blame that on President Obama. He is just cleaning up GWB's mess as someone has had to do for his entire life. The man might be a good used car salesperson but not much beyond that!
Barack Hussein Obama and the Constitution.
Even if Weiner is elected mayor, the New Yorkers are still way ahead in smarts over the South Carolians who elected the "trail walker".
