Obamaís Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week
CNN ^ | May 15, 2013 | Jake Tapper

Hereís what they might be saying in the White House this evening: Itís only Wednesday.

Itís been a rough week for the Obama administration with revelations the Justice Department tracked reportersí phone lines adding to the pressure already building over the response to that attack in Benghazi last September and the IRSís targeting of conservative groups.

There's just so much lying, covering up, spinning the news you can do until it actually has the opposite effect.

The Main Stream Media have gone as far as they could in reporting the news about the president with a modicum of credibility, self-respect, while being able to keep a straight face to report the news in favor of the president without feeling moronically self-conscious.

It is my assertion that the president's attempt to continue having the press cover his *ss, having a reverse effect, with the sense that the MSM felt the president making a fool of themselves with his lies, to have them protect him, by being his waterboy but which they simply had enough when his lies went too far.

It seems we've passed the Rubicon, and no turning back, an unstoppable feeding frenzy going full blown with Obama flailing in the water, the voracious MSM sharks showing no mercy as they take huge chunks out of the president's hide, as he politically bleeds to death.

Don’t worry about it Jake. Barry isn’t having as bad a week as his toady defenders in the state controlled “media” are having.

I dunno. That guy over at CBS 60 minutes, Steve Croft, surely outdid himself with that recent love-fest interview between Hildabeast and Zero.

Steve Croft should get a management position with the IRS.

I know not what course others might take, but for me there are a great many very special prayers going out for Obama, Jarrett, Biden, Holder, Reid, Hillary, Soros, assorted Dems and Libs and RINOs everywhere.

Very special prayers.

If these scandals can derail Obumbles 2nd term agenda and kill amnesty and anti-2A legislation, it will be a huge help. If Rebubs use it to sweep back into power and stop Obamascare from going into effect, we just may save the Republic.

Obama had nothing to do with these crimes. Nothing!

He ‘knows nothing, nothing!’ as Sargent Schultz always said on Hogans Heroes.

Its all government bungling and screwups.

But we got Obaam-care to look forward to.

To answer your question, no, no one was slimier than Begala, especially when he was in the tag-team of Begala- Carville.
Blessedly, they’ve both been pretty much out of the picture
for quite awhile. Looks like their “services” were not needed
by the Obama Admin., except as occasional surrogates.
I don’t know if I could’ve taken hearing and seeing those two, along with all the other motley crew that function as Obama’s front men.
Begala is from that distant period when we were just learning
about the whole phenomenon of “Democratic Strategist”. NOW D.S.s exist under every rock,are mostly female and monopolize Fox News.

Information overload.

The goal is to derail any momentum the Republicans might have in prosecuting the cases. Once the public grows weary, the Media will flip the tables on the Republicans to put 2014 in jeopardy. In response, the Republicans will back off.

Sadly, the Media is largely in control.

The problem is that even if we win in 2014, and can win in 2016, the White House will be handled to a 2%er like Jeb Bush.

“I was not the person who was involved in that decision.” “I was recused in that matter.” “I am not familiar with the reasons why.” “I am simply not a part of the case.” “Uh, I don't know...I don't know.”

One of the first things you will learn in an entry-level college course on management is this: You can delegate authority but not accountability.

This man, the object of high praise as a Harvard law professor, is the leader of the free world; surely he has at least a nodding familiarity with the most basic principles of leadership.

WOW! That would be such a cool, mind-blowing comment by anyone in the press to either Holder or Carney.

They would be famous forever.

“Do you have any idea how much you remind me, and all of us here, of Bart Simpson at this very moment.” or something to that effect...

One almost feels sorry for a president who probably can’t wait until the Friday dump to unload more incriminating information during the lead-in to another news dead-zone.

LOL, Obama, the chickens are coming home to roost buddy.

What do folks want to bet before it’s all over, he’ll demand extradition to Kenya his real birth-place?

Well he isn’t being attacked on policy grounds yet but there would have been a backlash from the unpopularity of Obamacare in a few months anyway. I agree there is no going back. The press is just a little ahead of the curve on this one.

Beautiful dreamer, awaken! The scandals will only further desensitize the American people, who are already deeply cynical about our government. (And those not cynical are mainly ignorant.)

If somehow we get a Republican majority in both houses of Congress, what have we gotten? RINOs.

Others here are having another dream: impeachment. Obama won't make Nixon's mistakes. There will be no tapes, no evidence of any kind. Therefore no impeachment.

At best...at the very best...the progressive agenda's ratchet will be stayed until the next installment of a charismatic charlatan. RINOs don't undo the existing damage. Why should they?

The Main Stream Media will return to Obama's plantation before the end of next week. The ones who have nothing to hide are miffed about their rights being infringed upon, but the vast majority are more scared of Obama than ever because of the new information he now has on them. The trouble with electronic information is how easy it can be copied and kept even when the public thinks it's been returned or destroyed. Call me a cynic, but after the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare, I continue to expect the worst of each situation until it somehow proves itself to be truly better.
