Do you think this finally got THEIR attention as to the scope of dishonesty and criminal activity this administration has condoned and practiced?

We’ll see.....

why do i doubt they'd be so worked up if it was FOX that got monitored...

I'll bet that Fox News has been and is being so monitored.

I mean, if they'd do it to their own supporters, you gotta conclude they've done it to Fox.

I have no sympathy for these media pukes. They’ve aided and abetted the enemy, enabled Clinton, Obama, and the rest of their minions to violate the rights of law-abiding citizens. Now that they feel their rights have been violated, they’re crying the blues. How does it feel a-holes?

I don't either and I furthermore think they're too stupid to realize what a big deal this really is. Obama will come out with some pedantic, condescending explanation and the dopes in the media will eat it up.

Holder will claim "National Security" issues as the reason, and deny Political and other reasons (such as forcing Reporting to toe the White-Hut talking points lines, etc.).

Yup. You're exactly right. I've been reading the lib comments to this story over at the Washington Post and they're all "national security, blah, blah, blah." The useful idiots in the media will buy the national security line hook, line, and sinker all because the explanation comes from the great and powerful Ozbama.

I'm a tad skeptical about this AP story until I learn the motive and guest list for the "deep background" pre-presser meeting last Friday. The news agencies have become the story twice in as many days. Has anyone spilled the beans about that off-the-record Friday meeting yet?

So do you think this will cause the AP to "leak" some of the background they found on President Obama during his first run?

I don't think so either.

I’d bet there are some reporters at the AP that find this all kinda sexy in a masochistic way. MSNBC is definitely jealous.

Ben Ghazi WAS a long time ago:


I’m reading a Vince Flynn novel written before 2001, and a major enemy is named Muammar Benghazi.

Just had to smile at that.

I don’t know.

Around here, we just rely on tales of Jack Bauer and tales from Shakespeare, with a complement of “Live Free or Die Hard”.

The kids have been saying for at least a week, now, “don’t they know that the boss of the operation always whacks everyone in the end?”

Oldest story in the Book.

Dopes.

This was before Benghazi. It is supposedly about a leak into a bombing plot round May 2 of last year, the anniversary of the supposed killing of Osama.

Haunting, isn’t it.

I picture all of them clutching their eyes in the middle of the night with these images in their heads, they thought everything was finally back to normal. Mooch and the kids were ready for their $7 mil summer jaunt to Martha’s Vinyard, and they’re mumbling, “Ben Gurion airport, Ben Gazzara, no! that’s not it, what was it I was dreaming?!”

Ah. They should’ve just read “MacBeth”.

Saves a lot of trouble.

Stand Guard, lets not rule out that this is total deflection. A Wag the Dog moment where the AP has an “Oops” we got it all wrong moment after they sucked the air out of the IRS / Benghazi story.
