Posted on 05/16/2013 4:48:50 PM PDT by grimalkin
We are in the midst of the worst Washington scandal since Watergate. The reputation of the Obama White House has, among conservatives, gone from sketchy to sinister, and, among liberals, from unsatisfying to dangerous. No one likes what they're seeing. The Justice Department assault on the Associated Press and the ugly politicization of the Internal Revenue Service have left the administration's credibility deeply, probably irretrievably damaged. They don't look jerky now, they look dirty. The patina of high-mindedness the president enjoyed is gone.
Something big has shifted. The standing of the administration has changed.
As always it comes down to trust. Do you trust the president's answers when he's pressed on an uncomfortable story? Do you trust his people to be sober and fair-minded as they go about their work? Do you trust the IRS and the Justice Department? You do not.

"You WILL Trust us or, on the morrow, be audited."
We are in the midst of the worst Washington scandal since Watergate.
Nope. Seems Peggy has amnesia. Benghazi is the worst Washington scandal since Fast and Furious. And then comes the Clinton scandals.
Then - far down the list in DC scandals - comes Watergate.
What happens when you elect Marxists.
Oh, Peggy, you should have retired 12 years ago.
I haven’t trusted the Government nor the electoral process since Obama was elected.
Now we find they crippled the Republicans even worse than picking Romney as Candidate.
An election where fraudulent votes are counted, people voted more than once, now we find the IRS doing dirty deeds dirt cheap.
Add Benghazi and fast and Furious to this mess and also add Roberts being blackmailed to approve Obamacare and we seethe depth of the crooked administration we have in charge.
I would have liked the article better if she hadn’t embraced him so throughly in his first run.
But Peggy...Joe Klein says the AP story is no big deal...just a “policy debate”.
And Benghazi is a scam by Republicans.
The IRS? Well, Obamabuttlicker Joe Klein concedes it is bad...but hey, Obama is the MAN for Joe.
Not only that, but she’s delusional about the fact that this is hurting him. I don’t believe it.
SHE IS RECORDING THE EXCHANGE OF WORDS...
PLEASE PUT A NAME WITH THE FACE....
Uh, Peggy? The people doing this have absolutely no intention of cleaning any stables. This is the new business as usual.
“High Noonan” must be a western movie starring the Three Stooges..
Joe's next book will be titled "Primary Kool-Aid".
BTTT... WHO IS THE LADY IN THE PHOTO ????
... WHO IS THE LADY IN THE PHOTO ????
It ain’t hurting him with the libturds. Bette Midler applauds the persecution. A handful of libturds claim they are “concerned” and then we find that most of them sent letters to IRS asking them to do just what was done. Horsecrap Bozo is upset. They are all sniggering up their sleeves.
Put a sock in it Peggy. Where were you when it mattered?
Peggy still doesn’t get it.....the leftists don’t care if anyone ever respects the IRS or other abusive executive agencies anymore.
We just must OBEY.
Why is anyone surprised by the use of the IRS to persecute dissent and of the government searching the AP with a secret warrant?
After all it those who support the Obamanation of Desolation that claim the constitution is just a document.
The left believes that the end justifies the means. They believe that their end is good and that any way they can achieve it is justified.
That is the true difference between the left and the right. The Right is generally made up of people that are either absolutist or rationalist in the areas of ethics and morals while the Left are subjectivist which is simply a modern form of sophist
Do you trust the IRS with your health dossier and payment approvals?
WHO IS THE LADY BESIDE HOLDER...SHE HAS A RECORDING DEVICE IN HER HAND...
Either he knew about fast and furious, IRS harassment, etc., or he didn’t.
If he knew, he’s complicit.
If he didn’t, he’s incompetent.
Choose your poison, Zero, you loser shyster huckster con-man!
Look at her now, she wrote a touchy-feely column that is right on the money--just as the earlier ones were.
....A NAME PLEASE....
Totally disagree with Noonan on this point! If ever we need to enter the 'game' and start playing hard ball, this is it! If talking points are true, why should they be off limits in the 'game', when the game is the very serious task of bringing attention to people and things that are wrong in our govt?
She did and it was disgusting. I felt embarrassed for her.
Bengazi is the scandal; all else is distraction. Actionable distraction certainly but it’s Bengazi that will keep Hillary out of the white house
And regardless of whether “the standing of the administration has changed,” almost certainly, nothing will be done about any of this. What came of Fast and Furious? — Nothing, and nobody cares. Nobody is going to care about this, either. With the ‘Rat control of the Senate, President Zero knows he is untouchable.
The country voted for him, and the country needs to have all four years of him. And his little dog Boener, too.
0bama using the IRS against his political enemies is clearly an IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE and are the actions of a tyrant.
Whoever she is, she seems to be getting hot watching holder the magnificent administer a thourough dressing down to whitey.
I seem to remember there was a name on the thread when I first saw that photo. Of course I have no idea when I first saw it. Maggief is a good researcher, and has a good memory, and also Mesta Machine may remember.
Really, Peggy. Do you not understand that this administration and the Democrat party have made the work of the federal government to subsume individual liberty and economic freedom?
How else can the country be defended except by "partisan shootouts"?
There is an enemy within, Peggy, and he controls the federal government. And, may I add, he is the guy you supported...
How, then, do you propose to fight it, Peggy? With a high-minded bi-partisan commission of Washington lifers? Like yourself?
I have had it. If they don’t clean this house top to bottom, I will become an ex-pat.
Bengazi is by far the worst but it poses a problem for those who want to be rid of obumbler.
In regard to Bengazi, there are many problems in charging obumbler. Dumb....no law against dumb. Bad judgement...no law against that. Ashamed of the end result?....no law against being ashamed.
But the IRS matter is clearly a criminal act. It can be proven that it was intentional, law breaking, etc.
I think that is why the congress, most of whom are lawyers, are bearing down on the IRS matter even though unlike Bengazi, no one died.
It is a matter of which case one could try in court and make a convincing argument under the law.
Susan Rice, isn’t it?
Spamming the thread in all-caps isn’t going to get you an answer. Track down the photo and maybe you’ll find a caption. Do we have to do *all* your work?
Peg’s undies have clearly dried out.
Shut up and slink away, Peggy, you political slut. This is not a damned game. The We The People sovereignty is at greatest risk since the CW.
The right shouldn’t make a scandal of it, said the self-styled liberal socialite on the DC cocktail circuit who writes a political gossip column disguised as in-depth analysis to make ends meet.
What happens when you elect Marxists.
Lawless communist thugs.
"Original Post: Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan and former John McCain adviser, Time columnist, and MSNBC contributor Mike Murphy were caught on tape disparaging John McCain's selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate. "It's over," Noonan said. When Chuck Todd asked her if this was the most qualified woman the Republicans could nominate, Noonan responded, "The most qualified?. No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullshit about narratives. Every time the Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and that's not what they're good at, they blow it."
These folks are so steeped in Watergate, they can't see straight. Watergate was kid stuff to the Clinton administration's antics, and this guy is probably the worst since revolutionary war traitors, and they weren't president.
This guy is president. These are the biggest scandals to ever rock this nation.
Pull your head out Noonan.
Sinister? How about blatantly criminal? I want to see lots of people out from behind their desks and into prison orange... Including hussein.
Oh yes,...very good.
