Quotes of the day

posted at 10:41 pm on May 15, 2013 by Allahpundit

More than 50 major media organizations on Tuesday sent a letter to the Department of Justice protesting the seizure of two months of The Associated Press’ phone records and calling for the department to “mitigate the damage it has caused.”

In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Deputy Attorney James M. Cole, the organizations — which include POLITICO and Allbritton Communications Company — ask that the DOJ return the secretly subpoenaed phone records and explain how government lawyers “overreached so egregiously in this matter.”

***

It’s too soon to tell, of course. But there are some aspects of these stories that suggest they’re going to make more-than-medium-sized trouble for Obama.

To start with, while the particulars might be complicated, both stories are easily understandable to people who aren’t politics and news junkies. Here are the nubs: (1) The State Department intentionally obscured the truth about the death of an American ambassador weeks before a presidential election. (2) The IRS intentionally audited people and groups who opposed the president. Those are the take-home, headline versions of the stories and they’re pretty clear-cut.

Second, there’s still reporting to be done on both stories. We don’t know how much is left to be unearthed, but we do know that we haven’t touched bottom yet. How high up in the government did knowledge about the IRS’s activity go? And then why wasn’t it stopped? At the State Department, emails claimed that the “building’s leadership” wanted changes made to the CIA’s talking points memo. What and who, exactly, does that mean?

Not only do we not know the answers to those questions, but also the answers will probably prompt further queries.

White House press correspondents tell POLITICO that, from their perspective, the coming weeks will serve as a “moment of truth” for Carney, who faces the greatest test of his tenure to date. Three days into a changed environment in the briefing room, they say they admire how he has held his ground, deflecting reporters inquiries while at the same time maintaining the cool, no-drama demeanor that has long been a defining feature of the Obama White House.

But these are still the early days, the White House correspondents say, and the onslaught is unlikely to die down anytime soon.

“It’s an entirely different environment in that briefing room now,” Jon Karl, the ABC News White House correspondent told POLITICO. “Jay Carney’s job just got a lot more difficult. He’s facing incoming from all directions.”

“It’s not a briefing anymore, it’s a pounding,” former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said. “The best thing he can do is take the position of piñata and enjoy it.”

***

If these scandals are indeed affecting the ideological landscape, this is bad news for liberals. It’s not just that the opposite ideology is getting some help from government bunglers, but the media is exacerbating the problem. Liberals believe that there is a role for government to play in mediating market failures, and there are plenty of stories of areas where the safety net is thinning as a result of sequestration—from cancer treatments to Head Start to Meals-on-Wheels—where government should step in. But those stories get lost in the scandal coverage of an administration, making it look like conservatives fundamentally understand something that liberals do not.

***

GREENWALD: It’s very tough times and, you know, that’s what I said, I don’t think anyone wants, you know, people who are Obama supporters or supporters of progressive policies, this is not gleeful jumping up and down, this is saying this is sad, this is painful, but we’ve got to speak the truth and we’ve gotta create pressure. And maybe, you know, one positive thing to think about is, think about what people in the immigrant community (have) done, and the LGB community. When they were not getting what they needed, they pushed back. It’s similar with civil liberties, it’s going to be similar with war, it’s going to be similar with drones. We need to push back on this. And sadly, there is a pattern and this happens with all presidents, whether you call it the military industrial complex or the national security state, which checks on 1.7 billion emails every day, think about that power. They have a tremendous impact and power on whosever president. And it’s our job as real patriots to push against that.

SCHULTZ: Well, you know, if somebody’s politically motivated, they can destroy people’s lives. They can, they can, they can destroy candidates, they can destroy people’s lives. I mean, this is almost like a secret society that’s operating here. And if this goes all the way to the president, it’ll be the end of Barack Obama, it will. If this goes all the way to the president, this could be, this could be his downfall.

I love how Lisa Myers admits the press is part of Obama’s team. And in the end, that has led to his downfall. Since Obama never felt threatened by a free press, his thirst for power had no limits and he overreached. So there is the delicious irony of the sycophant media ultimately being the cause of his downfall.

Clare Spark is a obscure blogger that often posts comments on PJMedia.

she says things like this that make sense to me

This blog makes the claim that Obama’s personality is the wrong focus of attention. We do better to look at the incoherence of the base that elected him, and what is the bond that links him to such disparate sectors of the electorate, ranging from Wall Street liberals, Hollywood moguls and celebrities, teachers unions, the AFL-CIO, youth culture, environmentalists, and “racial” minorities, including liberal Jews still tied to the New Deal embraced by their parents.

that is an excellent question. And to me, the answer is fairly simple..power and money and corruption/graft. So if this is correct then barry’s ‘over-reaches’ won’t make much difference. Barry has said he wants to transform the country.

Well, there you go. He has reached out and said..yeah, I’ll use extra-ordinary powers against those that stand in my way. But what about his troops?? Are they okay with this? A lot of them are…we know that.

So wrt Spark…if this amalgam of self-interested groups finally gets up enough votes and a extra-good voting infrastructure…well, isn’t that the next step…suppression? And if I personally depend on barry and his people..well, am I going to say much?

or will they say..don’t worry, barry fired a few people..and fixed it..and It Won’t Happen Again…promise

We are in terrible trouble, and have no one but ourselves to rely upon. We still have the internet and social media. These must be protected above all else, whatever our politics. The republic will stand or fall depending on our defense of free and inquisitive communication, let the chips fall….

Conservative4ev on May 15, 2013 at 11:11 PM

Right now, pretty much everything is in flux. We don’t know the scope of each individual scandal yet, or how they might be intertwined to show a pattern. We don’t who who issued what orders, and to whom.

We have a document dump, with the pages looking like they came off an 80s fax machine in sore need of repair. We have the ‘resignation’ of a scapegoat/sacrificial lamb who was set to leave his post in two weeks, anyway.

What’s funnier about that, if you consider it, is that his own email says exactly that. And he made it public! I may be off the mark here, but it looks like he got in an embarrassing parting shot against Obama by doing that; there’s no way Obama could not have known the guy was on his way out.

Six or more Dem senators, most notably Schumer, pressured the IRS to come down on Tea Party and other such groups, in effort to shut off the cash flow. The entire time frame for both the WH and Senate efforts runs two years, now.

Finally, the unity of the LSM is under strain. Some are still wholly in Obama’s corner, while some including the liberal icons Woodward and Bernstein are asking impertinent questions of the Chicago Jesus. Either the crack will become a schism, or it’ll be patched up. Time will tell.

Nothing is settled, and I expect much more is to come. This could end up being a very hot summer.

-They are lying about not knowing.

-I read somewhere that the leak they were looking for was the Stuxnet leak association with the USA, which was a leak intended to pump up the REB’s pitiful image. That means they were hunting a democratic leaking to the press.

-Even if they make the official claim that’s the leak they were after, it could be another lie. We may never know what they were really looking for.

Evil laughter must be properly inserted. Otherwise something might happen, something like a jinx or omen or harbinger of an omen on the precipice of a jinx.

White House press correspondents tell POLITICO that, from their perspective, the coming weeks will serve as a “moment of truth” for Carney, who faces the greatest test of his tenure to date. Three days into a changed environment in the briefing room, they say they admire how he has held his ground, deflecting reporters inquiries while at the same time maintaining the cool, no-drama demeanor that has long been a defining feature of the Obama White House.

In other words, they don’t give a shiite about the truth. Let’s see if Obama and Carney can transcend this scandal.

A poster on another thread–Holder telling Issa heno love him long time, said “Issa should have said FU”, only it came throught the filters in loving color. So in his/her honor myiq2xu now means the finger salute.

Why is Carney singled out he is just repeating what he is told to say. Carney cant be the fall , he’s just a puppet

Earlier, when the tornado was over Cresson, was the first time I was glad the Pate Museum of Transportation is gone. Even a small tornado would have destroyed it.
