Skip to comments.Full Spin Mode on IRS, Benghazi, AP Scandals as WH Advisor Does 'Full Ginsburg'
Posted on 05/19/2013 8:48:46 AM PDT by Nachum
Senior White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer is set to perform the 'full Ginsburg' on Sunday, appearing on all five major Sunday morning news shows in the latest sign that the Obama administration is determined to fight for control of the news cycle following an explosion of major scandals in the past several days.
Pfeiffer will appear on CNN's State of the Union, ABC's This Week, CBS's Face the Nation, NBC's Meet the Press, and Fox News' Fox News Sunday.
The White House began suffering unusual setbacks in the media following the revelation that its edits to "talking points" on the Benghazi terror attack were more extensive and substantial than first admitted, and that it sought to minimize references to terrorism while pushing a false story that the attack was a "protest" against a YouTube video. On May 10, the IRS revealed--and apologized for--targeting conservative groups, triggering both criminal and congressional investigations. And on May 13, the Associated Press protested against a Department of Justice seizure of journalists' telephone records.
Those major scandals created (or, for conservatives, reinforced) an image of an administration willing to abuse its power to manipulate the media, punish its political opponents and discourage whistleblowers. The White House was slow and ineffective in its initial responses.
White House spokesperson Jay Carney gave journalists explanations about the Benghazi emails that were subsequently shown to be false; President Obama did not respond to the IRS scandal until asked a question by a reporter three days later; and the administration irked reporters by defending the AP subpoenas on national security grounds.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I wish one of the mothers of those four dead Americans would come on one of those shows and spit in Pfeiffer’s face.
I believe they call them ‘controversies’ now.
“Full Ginsburg” sounds like a wrestling hold.
“What? I don’t see no scandals.”
You’re absolutely correct.
All these “scandals” are nothing but a witch hunt by
vile, evil, mean, Conservative operatives who are racist to the core.
It’s absolutely disgusting that they’re getting away with trying to destroy this open, honest, transparent, benevolent, well-meaning, loving, harmless,
Constitution-abiding administration; absolutely disgusting.
More like do the full Sharpton.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
This would be a devastating line were the GOP to start using it. Perfect mix of irony and obvious truth.
I thought a video caused all of this ruckus. BAmmy didn’t, know nuttin, about it but will work tirelessly to make sure it never happens again.
Try the full Monty.
The emperor has no clothes
This worked so well for the Democrats the last time they did it. They’re falling apart.
A major part of the Benghazi scandal was that an Obama spokesperson, Susan Rice, appeared on five Sunday talkshows to lie about what happened in Beghazi.
Today, another Obama spokesperson, Dan Pfieffer, similarly appeared on five Sunday talkshows to lie about the original Benghazi lies, their cover-up, and other serious Obama scandals that have erupted over the past few months.
What’s next? A cover-up of a cover-up of a cover-up?
During Watergate, Nixon appointed a Special Prosecutor, Archibald Cox, to get to the bottom of the scandals that were plaguing him. If Obama refuses to also appoint a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of HIS scandals, he’s worse than Nixon, in fact, he’s a dictator.
They are scared to death about Benghazi to try a failed stunt twice. Why did Hillary and Obama produce and air a commercial in the Middle East apologizing for that baloney video using hard-earned American taxpayer dollars WHEN THEY KNEW THE VIDEO DIDN’T CAUSE THE ASSAULT IN BENGHAZI? They both knowingly and willfully themselves, not some underlings, used American tax dollars for a political coverup. You can’t hide that fact or blame it on subordinates. It’s them in the commercial.
We have a WINNER!
