“Scandal politics are sweeping Capitol Hill.
Just days after news broke that the IRS targeted conservative nonprofits, Speaker John Boehner’s House committees will morph into mock courtrooms where the White House will be the defendant in what amounts to a number of high-stakes political trials.
The most recent scandal to grip the Obama administration came Monday evening, when The Associated Press disclosed that the Justice Department sought its reporters’ phone records — including those of correspondents who sit in the Capitol. Within hours, House Republicans vowed to investigate. To make things worse for President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder is scheduled to be on Capitol Hill Wednesday for a House Judiciary Committee hearing.”
On a scale of 1 to 10 I am going to put it out there that President Obama cares about these issues at about a 2 1/2. The IRS making it difficult for Tea Party groups to report taxes was good for his reelection so I’m sure he hasn’t batted an eye over that. As for the Feds snooping around in regards to AP reporters, that just leaves more to the imagination for the tinfoil hat crowd, and President Obama most likely just does not care.
As for Eric Holder, he needs to get fucking terminated. Like bro, you gave assault rifles to drug cartels in hopes of tracking them, but instead they just killed people and you had no idea where any of them went. Now you have the fucking Justice Department investigating reporters that are just doing their job? You sir are the weakest link, goodbye
“So far, the only high-ranking member of Obama administration to suffer politically from Benghazi is Susan Rice, who withdrew from consideration for Secretary of State late last year after blowback for reciting errant talking points on the Sunday shows after the attacks.
But Rice’s unwanted place at the center of the Benghazi firestorm raises one tantalizing question:
Why was she the administration’s point woman with the press — or, more to the point: Why wasn’t Hillary Clinton, Ambassador Chris Stevens’ boss, the messenger?
Rice told NBC’s Brian Williams that Clinton was simply too tired to endure the grueling ordeal of five morning shows — the so-called “Full Ginsburg” — shortly after pulling her name in mid-December, under withering criticism from Congressional Republicans.”
I thoroughly enjoy how the entire Benghazi situation was supposedly due to a film made here in America that depicted the slandering of Mohammad. Umm, no, actually, I think Libyans were still pretty pissed off about that whole taking-Gaddafi-out-of-power ordeal. But I digress….
Hopefully all those middle-eastern countries continue to enjoy our democracy drones:
If not, we could be looking at a Benghazi 2.0 very shortly.
