New York Times: The Obama Administration 'Has Now Lost All Credibility'
Business Insider ^ | 6/6/13 | Brett Logiurato

Posted on 06/06/2013 2:58:59 PM PDT by Nachum

The New York Times editorial board ripped the Obama administration in a scathing editorial Thursday afternoon, writing that it has “now lost all credibility” after revelations that the administration has been collecting the phone records of millions of Verizon customers. It came as something of a surprise, considering the board’s normally friendly view toward the administration. But in the editorial, the Times’ board criticised the Obama administration in much of the same way it scrutinized the Bush administration. It wrote that the Obama administration’s justification for the program —

The obama administration has lost all credibility, and they could care less what you think, because they now hold all of the power of our government in their hands, and they know it. Conservatives lay down and die, refuse to put up a fight, and rest on their morals while the communists take over. If you’re going to shoot, shoot, don’t talk. You cannot reason with your enemy, you will end up dead for your efforts if you try. It boils down to us vs. them, who do you want to win? This is a battle on our own soil, for all of the marbles.

Would it be fair to call the NYT racist now?

Probably not.
But it would be fun.

Yeaahhh... this I didn’t expect. This means the NTY - and by extension, probably ALL the SRM - has settled on a new RAT for ‘16.

I’m about 94% sure that RAT is Krispy Kreme.

Never fear. Come 2016, they will be writing glowing editorials in favor of his re-selection.

(No, I haven’t forgotten the 22nd amendment).

But—but—but this is another rogue action by an agency and I am sure Obama knew nothing about it nothing. I am sure his Aides never told him this was happening. They kept it quiet from him so they wouldn’t disturb him.

There are a million things Obama knows nothing about mostly including being President.

The HYT hates conservatives more than they hate being spied on and lied to.

The Old Grey Flat-top Lesbian wasn’t prepared for surprise butt sehcks.. and their accountants probably just notified them of the new double healthcare premiums for their monkeys.
If they’re typical, they pay 2/3 of the monthly cost for each monkey.

Why has the Republican Party allowed this to happen?

They are on the side of the Fascists and against the people. We need a new party.

Obama has stepped too far over the line even for the far left Times. The tipping point was the AP and Fox subpoenas. You can sic the IRS on the tea party, but don’t ever cross the press. So now he will get a taste of how vicious the MSM can be, not to mention the Hill.
Amazing how he has wasted his 2nd term mandate in so little time.

“Its OUR fault for having the phones don’t you know?”

I'm sure leftist OLD fool Jim McDermott thought it, but declined to say it out loud in case hottie Meygan Kelly was in listening distance. She tore him to shreds yesterday when he tried explain why he blamed the Tea Party organizations for seeking tax exempt status with the IRS.

I learned a lot when I visited Wash DC on vacation last year.

I believe the mission of most folks there (D or R) is to make money and control the populace.

In the words of the late great Howlin’ Wolf,”Can’t lose what you never had”.

A 1/2 term state senator and 1/2 term U.S. Senator does not give a community organizer any credibility worth noting much less a qualifier for POTUS.

Shove it, NYT. I haven’t paid any attention to you for years, and I’m not about to now.

In case anybody was scratching their head about this line:

But in the editorial, the Times’ board criticised the Obama administration in much of the same way it scrutinized the Bush administration.

Business Insider is a rat publication, and what they are actually trying to do here is resuscitate the New York Times' credibility!
Don't buy it, not for a second.
