How crazy is this world when our government pays and hires people especially to field questions about injustice at the Dept. of Justice and corruption at the seat of the Presidency?Does Obama really need three people much less this Eric Schultz he hired specifically to field questions and handle reporters?Our taxpayer money used in hiring PR people to field and cover Obama’s corruption...

Her job is to lick Obama and keep him clean and shinning, not to ask inappropriate questions like those trouble makers from FOX.

Yup. Mythbusters proved a while back that it is, in fact, possible to polish a turd.

Attkisson was about the only good reporter CNN had. Now she’s forcing CBS to perform actual journalism. I love her.

The story even says that all the other MSM were cited as NOT reporting on this and they question what this reporters problem was.IMAGINE:telling a reporter it is not news and trying to influence what they say and report...

So Tracy Schmaler and Eric Schultz are screaming at this reporter. Does anyone have the email addresses and/or phone numbers of these people? We should be calling and emailing en masse because these two have sold their souls.

Kudos to Sharyl Atkkisson.

"Now that the paper trail proves he know in July 2010, Holder is saying he 'misunderstood the question'...."

....And CBS is EMPHASIZING that Holder's office claims he thought the question was about a case from back during the Bush administration. Yes, whomever says it was worrying that CBS was the only network reporting this (besides Fox) and that it gave them too much power was right.

Yes. Well the DOJ woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me. [Laura: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?] Eric Schultz.

More on cussing Eric Schultz

(may 2011)

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is staffing up in preparation for expanded oversight and inquiries from a Republican-run House of Representatives.

Eric Schultz, the former communications director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, officially joined the White House on Monday. While his portfolio will include issues primarily dealing with the Department of Justice, another key function will be to handle matters relating to and resulting from investigations launched by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

“Eric Schultz started Monday. He will be one of three associate communications directors, alongside Kate Bedingfield and Sandra Abrevaya," said a top administration official. "Eric’s portfolio of issues will focus mainly on DOJ and other oversight-related topics.”

... Schultz is no stranger to hostile political climates. Prior to taking over at the DSCC, he handled press for Al Franken’s 2008 Senate campaign in Minnesota, including the months-long recount against former Sen. Norm Coleman

Eric Schultz

Eric Schultz is headed to the White House communications shop after serving as Communications Director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) for the 2010 cycle.

Previously, Schultz handled press for Al Franken's 2008 Senate campaign and was National Press Secretary for the 2008 presidential bid of Sen. John Edwards (D-NC).

First, I want everyone on these threads to know, there is a petition to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate these scandals. It currently only has 318 signatures. Surely, if the left can find 8688 people who will sign a petition to "Fully Legalize Same-Sex Marriage Across The Nation," we can find twice that many people who are tuned in enough to demand a special prosecutor for this.

I found this bit from the interview with Laura Ingraham interesting.

Quoting Sharyl Attkisson in the interviews:
[The White House and Justice Department] will tell you that I'm the only reporter--as they told me--that is not reasonable. They say the Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, the New York Times is reasonable, I'm the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think I'm unfair and biased by pursuing it.

Here's what I find most interesting. As of today, here are some search results:

Those numbers have changed since Saturday, too. On Saturday, there were 7 stories on the New York Times site that mentioned "operation fast and furious," and 8 stories mentioning "operation fast and furious" on the Washington Post site. The stories are gone (I saved some of the links, and they are not found today), and Google has completely forgotten that the pages ever existed.

I guess the White House can add Google to the list of "reasonable" organizations.

One of these stories had dead federal agents, killed by guns that were basically given to the killers by the BATFE, along with dozens (so far) of dead Mexican nationals also killed by guns basically provided by the BATFE. The other is about some taxpayer money disappearing into a bankrupt company owned by a campaign contributor.

If the Bush administration had said, "There's nothing to see here. We don't need an investigation," would the LA Times, the New York Times and the Washington Post have just gone away and left the Bush administration alone?

Eric Schultz was specifically hired to to handle Issa Oversight Investigations.

Issa has been a disappointment, sure hope there is more going on behind the scenes.

Wonder if she'd like to follow up her experience with the White House pukes and talk to Issa about the Washington Post link?

They are up to their eyeballs in blood and gore in this ~ their reporters and reporter-ettes wrote all the preparatory propaganda and knew all about Fast and Furious.

Maybe it's one of them who threatened to kill people over at CBS.

is there a reasonably short synopsis of the whole F&F scandal?..Yes, Bush initiated Operation Gunrunner to find if guns were running to Mexico. In the year before Obama became HMFIC, they deduced there was NO Iron pipeline going to Mexico and were in the process of shutting it down. Obama and Holder said “If there isn’t one, we’ll make one and blame it on Bush to make us non complicit and use Bush’s program to take the second amendment down”. Simple, accurate and evidentiary.

Fast and Furious holds out the promise of something a bit more involved than a couple of years at Allenwood ~ more like a DEATH PENALTY!

They should all get real smart and turn state's evidence now and avoid the rush later.

I noticed that this “petition” exists on the White House website, and requires that I sign up in order to log on and sign the petition. I’m more than a little wary of this “petition”. If there is a petition that exists outside of the White House, let me know.

Issa started with the Black Panther issue, it was disappointedly dropped. Election fraud is a big deal. He said he was going to investigate the stimulus. There has been very little accountability since JAN. That is what I was referencing.

I think that your comments are right on target!

Attkisson is getting close to a real story here and her higher ups know it and are obviously backing her. I say obviously because one can only imagine that the WH has been on the phone to CBS to tell them to cease and desist. The fact that Attkisson is carrying on is evidence enough that CBS bosses told the WH "no dice."

CBS and others smell Obama's and Holder's blood in the water. No wonder there have been screaming episodes by the Administration, they are scared and desperate...with good reason.

Actually I think that the real story is that the Obama administration has emails/meeting minute records that state they want to implement certain gun control regulations and that to gain public support so as to nullify the NRA and other gun advocate groups they needed to create a problem that their desired gun control would solve. The problem that they decided would work best was to stop the flow of guns from the USA to Mexico. So in their twisted logic they needed to first increase the flow of guns to Mexican drug gangs.

Now the only other option I can think of gets real scary. That is that the Obama Administration at the highest levels is being paid off or blackmailed by the Mexican drug money. They are doing that in Mexico and many Central American countries so it is not impossible. There were lots of allegations about Clinton being involved with gun & drug running out the Mina Arkansas airfield.

Either of those two stories would likely result in serious questions about whether Obama could serve out the rest of his term in office or should be impeached.

If CBS gathers what is likely the real story, Obama might just choose to announce early that he will not run for reelection and hope that will get CBS, Republicans and certain gun rights groups to back off.

This is going to get real interesting and I agree with you that CBS probably does know what it is doing in backing this investigation.

If you were reading the Washington Post last year you would have observed they published a SERIES of very lengthy articles about gun running from the US to Mexico.

They had remarkably small numbers ~ like 7 long guns had ever been discovered that were traceable back to the US, but the Post used that as a basis for a 90% US sourcing.

It was pretty clear the Post had had "unfettered" access to ATF personnel on the border, in Mexico, in the Arizona field office and in Washington DC ~ and also to Justice Department folks involved in supposed ATF gun captures and tracing.

It was about that time that the very same ATF people the Posties were interviewing for their stories were doing the "Fast and Furious" trick ~ as well as some others like it in other states.

The same people the Post was portraying as heroic were knowingly involved in shipping guns to Mexican drug cartels.

It is inescapable that the Post writers and their editors KNEW SOME STUFF.

They've since removed those stories to their "Pay for it sucker" server. I had a chance to cruise back through the articles just before that happened and it's pretty clear it was a hand in glove relationship.

Lamar Alexander contacted Obama, asking for a special prosecutor?

Do you actually believe the corrupt-to-the-core Obama will appoint one, to investigate F&F, Holder and his own Administration?

I don’t think it’s going to be that easy.

Hope not, Bambi running in 2012 is less than a 50/50 proposition for him winning. If he doesn't run Hitlery is better than 50/50 to win, you just can't get a majority of (Moderate)Women voters to think with their God given brain, just like another Voting Block that I can think of.
