Ohhhhh. The White House bugged the phones.

Not Obama. Some low level staffer, no doubt.

And I'm sure nobody is more wee-wee'd up than Barry Ilyich Obama.

You're so right. "Oh, it wasn't us, it was that bad old NSA..." They're probably going to say it was elements/groups in the NSA put in place by Bush. ;-)

Sorry, the administration gets zero credit for stopping (well, allegedly stopping) wiretapping of our allies' (or former allies now?) leaders. That's like someone saying "No, really, I stopped beating my wife last summer." Oh, great, that makes you a saint eh? No.

"Right after never doing it, they stopped doing it."

That gave me a good chuckle, and led to this thought: right after not knowing anything about it, they stopped doing it.

Pathetic freaks. They can’t even keep their lies straight.

Frankly, I don’t see the big deal anyway - everybody knows that all countries spy on each other and each other’s leaders all the time. We’ve just got more sophisticated ways of doing it now.

For Obama to claim he didn’t know it was happening is ridiculous from the start. And claiming that he’s “stopped” it is equally ridiculous. He must have some ulterior motive...maybe so he can claim no knowledge of things in Iran, or perhaps protect his jihadi buddies?

I would add that he is too incompetent to do what ordinary people do. The guy has never had a real job (prior to the Presidency) as far as I know. He did nothing in the Senate except run for President.

How about Valerie - is she "too talented" or "ordinary".

Or just another shape shifting lizard....

President Obama gets the tapping on world leaders stopped, which was initiated by GWB in 2002.

Anyone who believes either the Dork-O-Dent or the NSA deserves that bridge in Brooklyn.

And of course, we have the wonderfully compliant b*tt-licking MSM there cleaning up the brown stuff - by eating it - each and every time.

Sooner or later things will go non-linear.

Be very sure to track these goons...we do not want them to get away.

Justice will indeed be done.

With prejudice.

-------------------------------------------------->

Actually, it was the White House, the building itself, that was wiretapping.

No humans were involved.

Except maybe Ted Cruz, who is clearly the diabolical nemesis of all that is good and to all the democrat party - progressives everywhere.

I’m curious as to when the wiretaps started. If the Geman taps started in 2002 then when did the other ones begin? Is it possible that George Bush knew that Angela Merkle didn’t mind shoulder rubs because of a wiretap?
