Skip to comments.Berger Story -- Dem Talking Points -- It's The Timing of the Leak, Not the Offense!
Posted on 07/20/2004 1:09:02 PM PDT by CWW
Have you noticed the consistent media spin about the theft of the confidential documents by former Clinton National Security Advisor Sandy Berger -- "It's the timing of the leak that's curious" -- not the fact that Berger engaged in illegal conduct they may invovle Clinton or Kerry.
I have now heard this spin on CNN radio, Fox News and, of course, the Today Show.
If Berger had been a Republican, do you think the media would give a rats a@@ abouth the "timing of the disclosure?"
...during 5 visits..
how is it that you accidently do the same thing over five visits?
With a mole working the National Archives assisting, how do we know Berger was the only official doing this?
>>If Berger had been a Republican, do you think the media would give a rats a@@ abouth the "timing of the disclosure?"
If berger were a Republican, the story would have been on the front page of the NY Slimes, above the fold, under a banner headline, and the rest of the national lamestream media would be covering it like white on rice.
I'm having a hard time remembering if Republicans questioned the 'timing' of the Abu Ghraib leak. Maybe that's because...they didn't.
If Berger hadn't been stealing documents it wouldn't be about the timing now would it?
Well, it is a vast right wing conspiracy. They must have all gotten the memo by now.
How do you accidentally stuff documents in your socks, pants and jacket?
Another question Berger needs to be asked is, "Is that a file in your pants, or are you just glad to see me?"
I wonder if Dr. Berger has ever stuffed a quarterpounder and a large order of fries into his clothing and shoes during a visit to McDonald's? Yum!
You do that very, very inadvertently. It's......a habit.
Isn't timing that matters in politics? It's just like a whoopi joke, the timing is the key!
This has been known by the principals for months. It came out during the lull before media scrutiny intensifies for the conventions, but after the 9/11 panel coverage would have raised disturbing questions.
And MOST suspiciously, it crossed the tape exactly at a moment when it would just miss most am newspaper deadlines.
It's the timing of the leak about the leak that's important! Holey socks, Batman, who could have tipped off the press about Sandy's document smuggling?
Yeah it is really curious it took this long for it to get out.
Are they kidding us? These democrats are beyond despicable: evil, traitorous, dangerous, incompetent, power-mad, unimaginably dishonest.
The time has come to destroy these enemies of the United States, just as we would destroy the North Korean ruling class or the Iranian mullahs.
I suppose that depends upon how you define "accidentally" and how you define "stuff". It seems the dems all have a hard time with any hard definition on anything except the vast right wing people.
This from the party who had Casper Weinberger arrested on a phony indictment the Sunday before a Presidential election?
