Obama Own-goal update: THIS Só JUST GOT REAL
Powerline Blog ^ | 5-15-13 | Steven Hayward

Nunes: So when they went after the AP reporters, right? Went after all of their phone records, they went after the phone records, including right up here in the House Gallery, right up from where I’m sitting right now. So you have a real separation of powers issue that did this really rise to the level that you would have to get phone records that would, that would most likely include members of Congress, because as you know…

Makes me wonder about that odd feeling I had a few weeks ago while shopping for snacks.

Where’s those highlights from Obama’s Ohio speech about how honorable government is and not to listen to those warning of epic government corruption?

Let’s hope O’bummer’s house of cards keeps tumlbin’ down. If Reggie Love came forward and ‘outed” O’bummer now I’d have to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.

Impeachment? Say Hello to President Biden. It'll never happen and it shouldn't.

First order of business: demand a special counsel. Second order of business (or maybe first): get rid of Holder. Third order of business: immobilize Obama's legislative program, his executive orders and his law-making "czars" in the bureaucracy. Congress needs to get off it's dead rear end and take its Constitutional power back!

I agree. But I have a gut feeling that Biden’s hands are tainted by this as well. So if impeachment occurs, perhaps it it be a dual one...

MSM, including the A/P, "shrugged" and laughed it off.
It was just about us, back then.

Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.

We are the Sovereigns and the Resistance!

I think there is tons of ammo now to display to the American people that government running our healthcare is outrageous and rife with potential abuses... The house should do a no confidence vote in the IRS followed by legislation that would remove the IRS as the enforcement method of Obamacare....Once that is done let unenforced Obamacare die on the vine.

We need to drag this out as much as possible too. We are a year and a half from the next election, we need a relentless drumbeat of corruption swirling around democrats. Obamacare will hit in the meantime as well.

Not unless we get a (conservative, not RINO) Republican Senate next turn. The Clinton "impeachement" which left him with more public support than ever should never be forgotten.

Are you dreaming? Just imagine Biden negotiating with Putin or the Chinese. He'd hand over the nuclear "football" and send them each a trillion dollars in Fed funny money.

I totally agree. Obama/Holder made a possibly fatal mistake by sending the IRS after the AP. Spin to justify that stupid move has already begun. Only if the crap keeps moving downhill will the media be forced to pay attention to the crimes of this totalitarian regime.

Holder should have been made to resign over Fast and Furious I believe. They are just going to say that tracing the phone records was for national security on the AP scandal.

So in your opinion nothing can ever change for the better.

Defeatist attitudes are the very thing that enables nothing to change for the better.

Defeatism is how wars are lost.

Not defeatist, just realistically judging the future. Remember that Mitt seemed to be a winnah.

Probably right.
He will also come in with a different lot of hangers on and sycophants, which as far as I can tell haven’t got much overlap with Obamas gang.
Cant be worse than the present lot.

I thought of that, too, but that would mean that people in the House (and not in the Senate?) are considered risks how?

This is an intrusion of the Executive on the Legislative, as though the Legislative had no say over matters. I should think NSA or CIA would be more than enough assistance to the Legislative, but Holder is 0bama’s firewall. And conduit.

Remember the Missouri Truth Squads of 2008. This is that gone national.

Wiretap has a connotation of recording conversations. What AP has exposed is collection of telephone records that show dates, times and numbers.

It sounds like the Congressman perhaps used the wrong word.

Or perhaps his role is to fan the fire in that side issue to keep diminishing Benghazi

I listened to NPR this morning. It was in interesting report. First they mentioned that Benghazi has been cleared up now that the emails were released. The spin in their story was that when you see the context of everything you understand that all the stuff coming out, even the blaming it on the movie, was just one of those, you know, fog of war things.

And then they went on to the IRS and AP wiretaping things and positively reported Obama’s refreshing “take charge” attitude and leadership about getting to the bottom of it.

It was pretty comical, and kinda scary.

I knew Obama had his eyes on the Tea Party, and I truely believe it began on that day when hundreds of thousands marched on Washington DC, and went to the Capitol Building.

I was standing on the west side of the Capitol lawn when I saw a helicoper over us. It was Marine One.

When he saw that crowd of people he knew he had to find a way to contain us. He used the IRS to do so.
