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

    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!!

    This had nothing to do with Bush tapping every phone in the country.

    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!

    Seven? List them please?

    This is a major scandal of govt accruing more power to itself. A danger. But then we saw it happen very after after 9/11/01 when Bush/Cheney moved by leaps and bounds to secure us from our freedoms. Obama continues it and makes is wider, deeper and more dangerous.

    Obama agreed with that and voted to keep those telephone companies free from prosecution. Was a red flag for me of his true nature.

    Stick to the facts and leave the name calling for the school yard.

    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 …
