The Mask Is Ripped Off of 'Hope and Change'
National Review ^ | 5/14/2013 | Jim Geraghty

Posted on 05/14/2013 7:09:49 AM PDT by Servant of the Cross

Today’s Morning Jolt is jam-packed, as it is a special ALL-SCANDAL edition!

SCANDAL ONE: Dear Media: Obama’s Indignant Benghazi Response Revealed a Lot Yesterday!

Dear friends in the media.

Come on.

I mean, come on.

You and I know what’s going with the Benghazi thing. Let me share something that I first put into play during the “was Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account hacked” debate, but that comes from watching the Lewinsky scandal, the where-did –Mark-Sanford-go scandal, the why-is-David-Wu-dressed-in-a-tiger-suit scandal, and a wide variety of wrongdoing committed by politicians:

When there is evidence of scandalous or bizarre behavior on the part of a political figure, and no reasonable explanation is revealed within 24 to 48 hours, then the truth is probably as bad as everyone suspects.

Nobody withholds exculpatory information. Nobody who’s been accused of something wrong waits for “just the right moment” to unveil information that proves the charge baseless. (snip)

SCANDAL TWO: Hey, Why Does the IRS Have to Tell the Truth to Congress, Anyway? (snip)

SCANDAL THREE: Of Course Eric Holder Is Allowed to Secretly Eavesdrop on Journalists!(snip)

You “Hope and Change” true believers were a bunch of chumps.

The comprehensiveness of the corruption of the administration of the ‘Magic Negro’ gives ‘WTF’ a whole new meaning.

Conservatives across the political spectrum and in the media are absolutely giddy. This week is starting to become the media equivalent of a giant-sized “I TOLD YOU SO!”

I’m absolutely amazed at how quickly the empty suit known as Obama is unraveling after pulling just one thread.

Kate... Kate...

we’ve been trying to tell you this whole socialism thing is evil, but NOOOOO.... you think you’re a good person because you support “helping people” without getting your own hands dirty.

“Hope & Change” has been a head fake and a fraud all this time?

Who knew?

Something we’ve know for 5 years now. I think 0’s about to lose his press pass pretty soon too. I heard the breaking news story about how Holder grabbed AP’s phone records about a story that was reportedly leaked about an event in Yemen that is embarrassing the 0 administration. I have a feeling some Bob Woodards are about to be unleashed now that The King has attacked AP. Let the snake devour its own tale. It’s long overdue.

“Scandal One”? Is this like that setting in Microsoft Word that resets footnote numbering to “1” on each page?

As soon as Union leadership, LGBT activists, Environmentalists and modern day socialist intelligentsia realize there is trouble you can expect widely updated talking points complete with blame for conservatives. They’ve been “investing” in this Administration for 3 decades and they own way too much to let amateurs drive in the ditch. Apple carts are are already circling.

The AP broke the news on Monday about what it called an “unprecedented intrusion” into its operation. It said that the DOJ had obtained detailed phone records from over 20 different lines, potentially monitoring hundreds of different journalists without notifying the organization. The wire service’s president, Gary Pruitt, wrote a blistering letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, accusing the DOJ of violating the AP’s constitutional rights.

Wasn't this what Rupert Murdoch was accused of doing over in the UK? As I recall the left over here went crazy over that.

It's unfortunate and increasingly dangerous that so many Americans are ONLY NOW aware of the reality about this person who fell from the sky into the oval office.

There are entirely TOO many coincidental facts and issues about ‘O’ and his creatures for any true American possessing a wholesome and natural regard for this country to overlook or to explain away!

This is EXACTLY what happens when the MSM goes to sleep! The supposed 'watch dog' of the public interest has abandoned its objectivity and the result is negative for all concerned.

I disagree with your saying the MSM went to sleep.

What they did was and IS deliberate.

They were not asleep they were and are actively engaged in turning this country into a socialist State.

The old idea Americans had of earning a living has completely gone by the wayside. The new idea is that everyone deserves a living whether they work for it or not.

If I earn a living and have a few pennies left over, those pennies are not mine, they belong to the State to share with those who will not work.

If I pay a premium to have good health care I am not being fair to those who will not or cannot pay, so I have to pay for their health care too.
I know many people believe that health care is a right.
It is not any more than Food is a right, or an Obama phone is a right.

I predict the press acts indignant. I predict we will see a lot of tsk-tsk-ing by pundits from both sides.

I predict the MSM will say it’s done its job by talking about these “problems” for the Obama administration.

I predict no further action takes place and a month or two from now we are all sitting around saying, “How does he keep getting away with this crap?”

If a single one of these had occurred under a Republican administration, they would have already resigned in disgrace .... as would have been demanded by the 24/7 OUTRAGE of the DNC-run media.

The current press 'outrage'? It seems a lot of kabuki theatre to me. They're just play acting. No one is demanding answers from their Dear Leader.
