Posted on 06/20/2012 10:20:53 AM PDT by Nachum
NBC News' Thomas Roberts accuses Rep. John Mica (R-FL) of "sour grapes" and having "an axe to grind" for requesting Fast and Furious documents that, according to Roberts, Congress is "not entitled to." s

Too bad this guy wasn’t around during the Nixon administration. We could have avoided that whole watergate thing
This is a great blunder by the communist. With the executive privilege move, Obama now owns Fast & Furious just as much as Holder, at least politically. I thought he would throw Holder overboard at some point and fire him over it. Now he owns it.
It’s strange - in Watergate it was Nixon and his team doing the cover-up - with the press after the truth.
Today it’s Obama and team doing the cover-up - with the press doing everything they can do help with the cover-up.
The ‘doting court eunuchs’ of the MSM fail to notice how much respect they’ve lost...
I am old enough to recall when Richard Nixon pulled a stunt like this. NBC pre-empted their daytime programming for close to a year to cover the live hearings. My, my, how times do change.
Interesting that the usual suspects in the news media are still protecting President Obama. I don’t know what we can do about these people except boycott them and hope they go out of business.
Obama’s Lap Dog’s little Lap Dog yapping.
Indeed. Once you start looking for it, the bias just leaps out at you.
"Senator Schumer, why are Republicans so unreasonable? The president wants to spend a mere $800B to solve this problem. The benefits are obvious. Why are Republicans unwilling to see that?"
"Senator Bohner, you are proposing a draconian $50M cut in this expenditure, despite the fact that this will have a devastating affect on children. How can you look America in the eye and say that this is a moral stance?"
I know people who can hear statements like the two above and cheer them both -- "Yeah!! Speak truth to power, baby!!"
For such people, this is what an objective press corps looks like.
I’ll add Pillow Biter and Pole Smoker to that!!!!!!
I do so hope that people are making lists of these Goebbels followers for future use.
Those of us who don’t get invited to the White House still have respect for the law and the Constitution.
“newsrooms” are staffed with a bunch of liberal journalism school indoctrinated idiots who think “reporting the news” is gimmick editing video for YouTube....
I remember it well. The press had a 24/7 party going on, songs, parodies, satire, sarcasm, record albums. Now, with a far worse scandal than watergate, they are silent. LOL! What pathetic bunch of losers, its hard to believe they can even show their faces on the street, let alone before millions of people.
Vinny Gambini: I object to this witness being called at this time. We’ve been given no prior notice he’d testify. No discovery of any tests he’s conducted or reports he’s prepared. And as the court is aware, the defense is entitled to advance notice of any witness who will testify, particularly to those who will give scientific evidence, so that we can properly prepare for cross-examination, as well as to give the defense an opportunity to have the witness’s reports reviewed by a defense expert, who might then be in a position to contradict the veracity of his conclusions.
[there is a short pause as Judge Haller appears caught off-guard by Vinny’s sudden compentence with knowledge of the law]
Judge Chamberlain Haller: Mr. Gambini?
Vinny Gambini: Yes, sir?
Judge Chamberlain Haller: That is a lucid, intelligent, well thought-out objection.
Vinny Gambini: Thank you, Your Honor.
Judge Chamberlain Haller: [firm tone] Overruled.
As this liberal idiot has never heard of “Congressional Oversight” maybe we should phrase the power Congress has in terms he would understand.
These documents may have an effect upon INTERSTATE COMMERCE.
According to their outlook on Constitutional powers that provides an unlimited mandate!
If romney wants to bat 1000... he will do what he has done on every single controversial action oabamo has taken... mitt will agree with obama.
“This surprises you?”
Not in the least. It’s my hope that some of the brain-dead American public wakes up and realizes it.
Yes... and other things I do not want to visualize.
Besides the fact that he's a lib I have always thought he was a weak candidate.
It's one thing to cluster-bomb one of your multiple competitor candidates at a time with neg ads when you have much more $$$ than him, it's another to take on 1 on 1 a single candidate with as much money as you and the POTUS mic.
BUT I have not become attached to the idea of Romney winning anyway. He has a very narrow strategy:"Don't take positions on anything and get elected by NOT being Obama"
RE :”Its my hope that some of the brain-dead American public wakes up and realizes it.”
They won’t on this, not the way things are going. My opinion anyway.
What they need is more leaked docs that show his guilt. Hell they (who-ever ) leak EVERYTHING else.
They're not asleep: they're being ignored.
The Fourth Estate is the Fifth Column!!!!!! Revolt is coming.
Is he any relation to Steve and COKIE ROBERTS???? He looks like he could be.
I noticed that too it's so obvious. While Romney destroyed Perry, Newt and RS with negative attacks, he is playing ‘kid gloves’ with Obama. I think his low ‘likability’ ratings have something to do with it too. He is in a box in many ways.
Crappy candidate. I always thought the LAST thing we need is a Republican John Kerry.
I smell blood in the political and MSM waters...And can't wait for these grifters/idiots to be exposed.
This is Romney’s chance to bury Obama....will he take it?
Another shining example of the last 40 years of ‘public education’.
I sure hope he gets fired & his next job is paving in Minnesota in the summer time.
Hot—hard—heavy work. Mosquitoes the size of hummingbirds.
I'm really looking forward to seeing these press sluts swing from lamp posts.
I wouldn't harm a hair on their prevaricating heads, but God forgive me I sure will enjoy watching them kick.
The communists and their MSM allies will overreach to take over completely through a violent summer.
They will pay dearly for it.
Today I saw a clip on FNC Special Report of Romney on camera saying that he thought Obama was going to return the WH to transparency and openness and that he is disappointed, he didn't (in the clip) cite exactly what he was referencing.
Is that strong enough ? :)
I agree. They will not stop until they are stopped from the outside. They have no conscience, no sense, no caution, no decent human qualities. They are driven, like rabid dogs on the march.
I remember executive privilege and witHOLDERing documents used to be very very naughty when Bush did it.
“I remember executive privilege and witHOLDERing documents used to be very very naughty when Bush did it.”
That was then..
See post 87 (cartoon)
I saw Schiffer on CBS yesterday ask a Republican, maybe it was Issa, exactly what crime was committed that would be shown in the documents that Obama/Holder is hiding.
I thought : Isn't that Schiffer's (and the rest of the MSM's) job to figure that out? He should be asking Obama and Holder this. Nixon would have served out his second term is the media defended him this way.
Man he is getting old, looks 100.
