NBC News to GOP Rep: 'You're Not Entitled To Those Documents'
Breitbart ^ | 6/20/12 | staff

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.

Their very framing of questions should be challenged or better yet ridiculed.

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 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!

It's difficult to tell who is talking to Mica in the video. It shows some other congressman (Clay?) in the left pane.

This article from Newsbusters shows the transcript

Obama has no worries as long as he can yell racism and the country is threatened with riots

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"

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.

Rick Flair said , “To be THE MAN... you have to BEAT THE MAN”. It was easy for mitt to destroy his more Conservative challengers... but he cannot bring himself to attack his fellow progressive in a way that would allow him to beat obama... but obamao cares only for himself and his power and will have no problem destroying romney... who is a target rich environment.

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.

Then that lovely pair met up with Barry and Kal Penn at the WH Glory Hole and had an interesting political discussion...while Mooch, her greased legs, xxxxs sweater, giant boob belt and crooked wig hat grew increasingly annoyed....despite the rest of the MSM waiting for pics of her being a FIT, INTERNATIONAL STYLE ICON.

I smell blood in the political and MSM waters...And can't wait for these grifters/idiots to be exposed.

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.

One of the Obama whores from ABC, Vic Ratner, just broadcast his report on the executive privilege claim - he said all presidents do it. Thats all.

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.

RE :”This is Romney’s chance to bury Obama....will he take 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 ? :)

RE :”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.
