    Hey Tommy Boy, a free and unfettered press is supposed to guarantee that happens. Not the government eavesdropping on phone calls.

    NOW the lefties have awakened to reality.

    It only took about 7 major scandals………

    Well, counting the made up ones, yes…

    As an average law abiding citizen, I have no trouble going along with what has always been a relatively conservative mantra on governmental “snooping”. And that is simply that if you are obeying the law, then you have nothing to worry about, anyway!!

    You’ve obviously never heard of the Patriot Act.

    “Just yesterday on NPR a former ambassador was a guest and stated he had investigated Benghazi and offered, nay asked to testify to Congress but he was not allowed. “Because his testimony was not friendly to the republican’s predetermined notion and desired outcome.”

    If you are referring to Pickering, I’ve read his report and can reasonably assure you that his testimony would probably not be complimentary to the administration, specifically the State Department.

    I don’t know about the NPR interview yesterday, but from a previous interview, “Certainly I made every effort the day before the hearing, including through the White House and their legislative people, to seek an opportunity to join the team testifying before the committee. I was told through the White House that that had been rejected. I was offered a kind of consolation prize of some other time.” I can think of multiple reasons why they didn’t take his testimony on that day and none of them reflect well on Congress or the Whitehouse.

    Bachmann and Limbaugh reportedly don’t know what to make of the latest scandals. Ha!

    Don’t forget, this was part of a Justice Department response to the House GOP that wanted the leaks, which they believed were coming from the administration for political purposes, stopped. Of course, Republicans have no political agenda, and no shame.

    @Robert Landers

    Have you noticed the kinds of laws we’re letting them pass? Laws which include civil forfeiture and warrantless searches? Laws which are so vague they could indict any one of us for anything, if someone decided we were rocking somebody’s boat?

    Beware the result of unintended consequences …

    In a nutshell … why is it that some of us can see this quite clearly, really, but many are totally blind to it.

    Are we just … old ..?

    No, but the prospect didn’t make me feel safer, either.

    In other words, I thought it was a crappy idea the first time I heard it.

    But I think that may have been the thing which confirmed my belief that at least some legislation (and statutes and ordinances at much lower levels too) are passed without ever being read.

    That should be an indictable offense, IMO.

    The thing that gets me is that either Obama’s people or Obama himself thought they could get away with all of these issues at once. What does that say about what they think of us and what does it say about both their abilities and integrity?
