Skip to comments.Sorting Out the Scandals [Joe Klein Tries To Rescue Clown Occupying White House]

... putting Benghazi, the IRS's Tea Party targeting and the Justice Department's leak-hunting seizure of Associated Press phone records in the same basket is like comparing a mirage to a dishwasher to a diamond. There is no common thread.
Benghazi is a scam, not a scandal. It began as a political ploy during the 2012 presidential campaign. Republicans tried to pin a cover-up on the President....
The Justice Department's secret seizure of AP phone records is more a policy dispute than a scandal.....
The irs's targeting of Tea Party groups is, however, an actual full-blown scandal. In fact, it is several scandals. The most obvious one was the lunkheaded effort by midlevel IRS employees....

No common thread, Joe? The common thread is the amateur.
“lunkheaded effort by midlevel IRS employees”
Yeah, just a couple of dopes in Ohio. Riiiiiiiiiight.
Translation: IF ONLY HE WERE A REPUBLICAN!!!!!!!
Poor media. When it comes to White House scandals when a Democrat is in office, it’s like having sex with the hottest girl in school and you can’t tell anyone about it.
-——The common thread is the amateur-——
The common thread is the tyranny.
The tyranny of one so obsessed with power he pays no attention to the law or any restraints . He is not alone in his actions. The whole body must be brought down, destroyed, dumped on the trash pile of History
The next admin or whoever mops up afterwards is effectively both wings clipped, and not able to get off the ground. (to use a metaphor)
Without a government authority (even a limited one as Constitutional conservatives dream about), human civility veneer will show us exactly how skin-deep it is. Dark times ahead. Both here in the States and abroad.
Leaving 30+ Americans to die is just a SCAM?
Hey Joe, tell that to the families of Ambassador Stevens and the other three dead Americans there.
Joe Kline needs to be put in a chair and shown what a Nazis like Obama can do.
Joe Klein, who is so afraid of the democrats and his colleagues that he published his only semi-truthful novel about The Clintons under “anonymous”, comes running to the rescue of those same evil overloards...
Boy you nailed it there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bet ALL the media are thinking that: “If only these were Republicans this would make a great story”
Anger + denial. Not a pretty combination.
“The government credibility of the United States has been irreversibly shred to tatters.”
The government lost ALL credibility for me when, still seeing the smoke and smelling the smell of the pile, I heard our President call islam a “religion of peace.”
“lunkheaded effort by midlevel IRS employees....”
No longer “low level”?
Slowly the chaff is winnowed from the wheat.
And, if not for the heroes who IGNORED ORDERS TO STAND DOWN and helped rescue some of them, there would probably be a hell of a lot more than 4 dead in Benghazi
Joe Klein. A Registered member of JOURN-O-LISTS.
The U.S. is now a global joke.
If a single U.S. ally has confidence in our ability to carry out treaty obligations, it is a miracle.
Thanks “O”! (Actually, thanks to the NEA and MSM which has assured us of this and many future generations of voters who are incapable of thinking past their nose)
While these idiot voters are all collecting their welfare and while the world is hugging itself over our embarassment, just remember... ‘what’s bad for the US is bad for the world... what’s good for the US is good for the world’.
Like it or not, that’s the practical and literal reality of our status in the world, whether we thrive or not!
THAT wasn’t the President I was talking about.
Scam, not a scandal. Got it. 4 dead in Ben-Gha-Zi. Foreign terrorist organization behind it. Knew in advance. But it was just a presidential campaign kerfluffle. Nothing to get upset about. No national security risks.
John Kerry told us we'd have to accept a nuisance level of terrorism in the world. Another Rat has said that death is a part of the cycle of life.
Sure there is. Every one of those scandals is all about holding on to power. They are the machinations of a petty tyrant, doing everything possible to cling to the reins of government.
There, there Mr. Klein, was that really so hard?
IMO the libs realize that Behghazi is by far the most serious of the scandals, which is why they are trying to hard to downplay it. Americans were left to die and then Obama, Hillary and Rice lied about it for political gain.
That’s not a clown occupying the White House, that is a Chicgo pol criminal.
There IS one common thread. The person in charge claims not to have anything to do with it and don’t know nut thin bout it. Bozo, Holder, whoever at EPA, Justice, whatever. The Bozo appointee knows nothin.
The fish rots from the head, as the saying goes.
The denier in chief has claimed that the furor over the talking points is a side show and I agree to a point. The REAL question is after learning about the attack he disappeared and had nothing more to do with it. He never called for an update on the situation or ordered help to go in. Presumably, he went to bed cause he had to fly to Las Vegas for an all important FUNDRAISER the next day. This is dereliction of duty on a massive scale. I did not agree with everything Dubya did ( he actually pissed me off several times) but I know one thing for sure, fundraiser be damned, he would have been in the situation room trying to move heaven and earth to help those people.
So you admit there was a cover-up. Who else should it be "pinned on," Little Man?
