Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on May 12, 2013 by Allahpundit

Lots of Benghazi this morning, with the State Department’s ARB chairman Thomas Pickering hitting NBC, CBS, and CNN to talk about Wednesday’s testimony from Greg Hicks. All eyes are on Darrell Issa, though, who’ll be the featured guest on “Meet the Press” and who suddenly has not one, not two, but three administration scandals to investigate: Benghazi, the IRS’s anti-conservative cretinism, and the momentarily overlooked news that Kathleen Sebelius was kinda sorta extorting the health-care industry to chip in and pay for ObamaCare. Issa’s committee will be busy until fall.

Also, John McCain will be on ABC because it’s Sunday and that’s what McCain does on Sundays. The full line-up is at Politico.

IRS targeting Jewish groups AND Conservative organizations as well? And then the Benghazi massacre while Obama was MIA for 7 hours?

If the gop was really an effective opposition party instead of golf buddies with Obama……

“President Obama had said it was terrorism all along…”

“Kurt Schlichter notes that conservatives have been vindicated quite often in the past several weeks:

Kurt Schlichter @KurtSchlichter

Things Conservatives Have Been Proven Right About Lately: ☑ Benghazi; ☑ Pigford;☑ Obamacare; ☑ IRS. Next up: The immigration reform scam.
6:43 PM – 10 May 2013

I suspect that list will grow longer.

The common thread in each of these scandals is corruption and a willingness to abuse the expanded powers of big government–while failing to carry out the most basic responsibilities of any government.

In Benghazi, Obama a) failed to take action to save American diplomats in danger, then b) lied about it, with the enthusiastic help of mainstream media journalists (some of whom now want to blame Mitt Romney).

In Pigford, Obama pushed for additional billions in federal spending on fraudulent “reparations” processes that was abused in the name of real victims of racial discrimination–all so he could pay off key voting blocs.

In Obamacare, Obama rushed through a massive, unworkable law–then granted waivers to key companies and a disproportionate number of unions while his congressional allies worked to exempt themselves.

In the IRS scandal, the taxman targeted Tea Party and conservative groups–including, apparently, at least one pro-Israel group. It happened on Obama’s watch; we may yet learn that it happened with his approval.

And in the ongoing immigration debate, special interests are writing yet another massive big government expansion while refusing to strengthen border security provisions–and, like Obamacare, rushing it through.

Schlichter could have added the National Labor Relations Board scandal, in which the president exceeded his constitutional appointment power–and continues to ignore a federal court ruling against him….”

Keep at ‘em, Issa. Zero will never be impeached, but I think it’ll be worse for him that he leaves office with everyone knowing he should have been impeached. For the next couple of decades, book after book asking, “Hey, why wasn’t Zero impeached?” That’s not the legacy he wants, but it’s the one he’s gonna get. The footnotes, the footnotes – Benghazi, IRS, Fast and Furious, the “train wreck” that is O-care, getting Seal Team 6 killed with his preening self-congratulations, and whatever comes next. The footnotes will haunt Mr. Thin Skin forever and ever. I predict that he will be one of very, very few preezies who continue to get less and less popular the longer he’s out of office. Oh, what a tragedy for the prince!

I woke up and watched a little bit of the MSNBC weekend morning show (that Chris Hayes used to do) and it’s devoted to “mothers” and “Mother’s Day” and the head of “Emily’s List” was discussing mothers in office/mothers as politicians and you should have heard her rattle off a list of “admirable mothers” past and present and not name ONE Republican. Nancy Pelosi check, Sarah Palin WHO? And she actually mentioned some Massachusetts “governor” from long ago who “actually gave birth when she was in office” to “wows!” from the rest of the panel.

Then they talked about married mothers (voting Republican) versus single mothers (voting Democrat) and the rise of the numbers of single mothers and promised in ten years up to three fourths of all mothers may be single mothers, as if this was a goal.

Then I changed the channel.

I don’t think so. They want to sell books just like every other writer does. No one will want to read a whitewashed pile of garbage — when we’ve all lived through the truth. People will be falling over each other to be “the first” to write “the truth.” And the truth is gonna be ugly, ugly, ugly. And it’ll sell. Once Zero is out of office, his thuggery against anyone who crosses him will be gone, useless, a punchline. I have no doubt there are dozens and dozens of folks just waiting to tell — from the inside — what an incompetent and thus dangerous man he was. For example, the story of Valerie Jarrett has never been told. It will be told. By someone on the inside.

This may prove to be the most effective defecit reduction / rein in govt strategy. Obama has laid so many scandals @ Congress’ feet that they can effectively do only what is absolutely necessary and shove any initiatives coming from the WH into the garbage where they belong, and keep these scandals front and center in Congress.
Just shove Benghazi, IRS, F&F, green jobs, etc., back in the faces of both the Dems and their lapdog media any time they complain.
One way or another they’ll have to cover this stuff.
After all, it worked before during the Clinton years.

“House Majority Speaker Eric Cantor said Friday the Republican-led chamber would investigate the tax-collecting agency for flagging the groups for additional review to see whether they were violating their tax-exempt status.

“The IRS cannot target or intimidate any individual or organization based on their political beliefs,” the Virginia Republican said.

Cantor’s comments were followed within minutes by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp saying he would hold a hearing.

The IRS on Friday apologized for targeting groups, but Camp, R-Mich., argued the agency had “repeatedly denied” such activity.

“The admission by the agency that it targeted American taxpayers based on politics is both shocking and disappointing,” he said.

The committee has jurisdiction over IRS, but it remains unclear whether other House committees also will investigate the issue, in which roughly 300 groups were flagged…”

Did IRS commissioner Doug Shulman, a Bush appointee, know about the targeting of Tea Party groups ? It has been reported that IRS chief counsel, William J. Wilkins, an Obama appointee, not only knew, but met with the group performing the inquiry. Are we to believe that these guys never talked, or that the chief counsel was running his own “game on the side” ?
If Shulman didn’t know, then this scandal begs for a path to the White House, if he knew it takes a diabolic quality.

“In “Does it bother anyone that this person is the Deputy National Security Adviser?” I noted his problematic background for someone given so much power by Obama. But then again he does specialize in fiction-writing.

He earned a master’s degree in fiction-writing from New York University just a few years ago . He did not have a degree in government, diplomacy, national security; nor has he served in the CIA, or the military. He was toiling away not that long ago on a novel called ‘The Oasis of Love” about a mega church in Houston, a dog track, and a failed romance.

Carol Lee of Politico wrote in May, 2009, that

Not long ago, Rhodes was one of the obscure guys who wrote Obama’s campaign speeches in Starbucks and played video games into the early morning hours. Now he attends national security meetings and takes writer’s refuge in a secret office on the third floor of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Wow – what a meteoric rise! What qualifies him to have been given such power to lie to the American people? Why does he have so much influence with Barack Obama ?

Maybe it is just his avid willingness to do the bidding of his bosses, regardless of truth.

Why do I make this claim? Well, for one reason, Hayes notes he did it regarding Benghazi. But there is a pattern here that he puts his education as a fiction writer to work for political purposes.

Years ago, Democratic Senator and Obama-mentor Lee Hamilton plucked him from obscurity to write what became the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study Group report. That report was rightly criticized for many reasons, among them was the stacking of its “expert list’ with various pro-Arab apologist. Incidentally, the commission ignored its mandate to focus on Iraq and instead devoted a lot of words to attack Israel. Some of the experts who were interviewed were appalled by the final written report because they felt it did not reflect facts, their testimony, or reality.

Who wrote this whitewash? Who was responsible for hitting the delete button of some of the expert testimony? Who tried to divert responsibility for terrorism away from where it belongs?

None other than Ben Rhodes – a man who has finally found a use for his fiction-writing education (since he failed as a novelist); to whitewash Islamists and the Obama administration…”

Really mixed bag, here, with the usual overall liberal bent, disguised by the inclusion of lots of RINOs and presumably non-partisan government hacks which are almost always liberals anyway. Couple of notably serious conservatives.

Typical.

You have never answered the question. Who did you vote for? We all know the answer, just admit that you are Not NONpartisan.

BeachBum on May 12, 2013 at 9:31 AM

I did not vote, because I live in a blue city.

I liked Obama more as the man, but I preferred Romney as President for his policies.

Hmmmm, there is a leprauchan on FNS…

pickering insists that hillary did not make any of the decisions that’s why they didn’t interview her?

WTF?????

Obama = Empty Chair

Hillary Clinton = Empty Pantsuit

WTF?????? Indeed…

What does living in a blue city have to do with voting? Are you saying they wouldn’t let you vote for Romney?

Every vote counts … supposedly. I understand in blue cities they count more than once.

There you have it. We debate with a kid who is too young to vote And is a pathological liar to boot. Unbelievable.

Re: Pickering

I wonder where his talking points will come from.
I wonder if the lefties on those networks will ask him any hard questions.
Watch Pickering dance. And duck, shuffle, jive, and spin like a top.

farsighted on May 12, 2013 at 8:52 AM

I don’t know this guy, but I already distrust him. Much is made of his Islamist bent, and his only GOP support is from Bushes … Muzzie suspect. And anyone whom clownish Jay Carney refers to as “unimpeachable” should be impeached on the spot, needless to say.

Just providing some “deep background”.

Remember folks, trolls are pathological liars and many of them are attention starved masochists.

So Candy Crowley on CNN brings on Susan Collins. Nothing to see here. Move on.

If Bush was still president, those men would be alive, or those responsible would have met Allah.

kingsjester on May 12, 2013 at 9:11 AM

If Bush was still president, those men would still be alive because he wouldn’t have had Ghadaffi overthrown using US forces without congressional approval. The outrage of the media, had Bush tried the same thing as Jugears, in violation of the War Powers Act, would have precluded any such actions on that administration’s part. We have four dead Americans not just through the incompetence of the sitting administration, but also due to the complicit involvement of the press that has become nothing more than the public relations arm of the administration and DNC. Look how they howled and screamed and worked to derail the success in Iraq despite the fact that Congress actually approved, several times, use of force in Iraq. The calls for impeachment proceedings if Bush had done what Jugears did in Syria would have been 24/7.

You’re right. Reagan shut up Ghadafi for 25 years with one well-placed missile in his bedroom.

Let’s see…

CIA wrote talking points and Hillary Clinton made no decisions as Secretary of State…And Republicans forced the Benghazi Revisions…

Is that Il Duce’s scorecard since Friday so far?
