Nancy Pelosi is like the devil himself, when she lies, she does so because it is a true manifestation of who and what she really is. There is no truth inside her to find it’s way out from time to time. When she lies, it’s because the truth is not in her, and never has been. It makes her a perfect fit for the Obamanation Administrations Democrat Party. To use an Obamaism, if Nancy Pelosi had a son, he would probably look just like Jay Carney.
No, really, Jay Carney would like to know. Even though he only showed his face in the briefing room twice this week, and even though the White House press corps used him as a punching bag, Barack Obama’s press secretary wants you to know he’s really enjoyed having to address this avalanche of scandals. Wait — did we say scandals? We mean, er, opportunities:
“I dismiss the premise, the idea that these are scandals,” Carney said flatly, calling the controversy over Benghazi a “total concoction by Republicans,” and the IRS scandal merely “inappropriate behavior” by the IRS.
Targeting the political opposition of the current administration is certainly “inappropriate behavior” by the IRS, but it’s also most likely criminal. Hearings begin today in that scandal, and the most recent IRS Commissioners will both have to explain to Congress why they deliberately misled the House when repeatedly denying that targeting activity was taking place at all. That’s the kind of “inappropriate behavior” that we call felonies.
The Hill has a little more on Carney’s denial:
“I would say that it’s been a challenging week, but in many ways a week that I’ve enjoyed,” Carney told CNN’s Piers Morgan. “Because I think that when a press secretary goes to a briefing room and there’s a lot of intensity in the room and a lot of news that is inspiring reporters to ask tough questions, you know, that’s what it’s all about.”
This week, two high-ranking IRS officials resigned amid a controversy in which the agency admitted to targeting conservative groups filing for tax-exempt status. Carney at times struggled through questions with reporters at a Tuesday press conference on the matter, and has faced criticism, including from former press secretary Robert Gibbs, over the administration’s “passive” response to the controversy.
In addition, the Department of Justice has been under fire for secretly seizing phone records belonging to the Associated Press during an investigation into a leak the White House says threatened national security. The administration has also continued to push back against Republican charges it wasn’t honest with the public about last year’s attack in Benghazi and that it didn’t do enough in the hours during the attack to protect U.S. personnel on the ground in Libya.
During Bush 41’s tenure as President of the United States the Fifth Column Treasonous Media made a genuine three ring circus out of Saddam Hussein’s Information Minister, Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf, whom the media nicknamed Baghdad Bob. I have to admit that it was a genuine riot listening to Baghdad Bob speak on the news. Baghdad Bob gained his international notoriety basically by being the worlds biggest and worst liar.
Very interesting contribution to the Iraq 10th anniversary chatter: The Atlantic reminds us of the matters on which the at-the-time derided, clownish and absurd Iraqi propaganda spokesman “Baghdad Bob” seems to have been proven correct:
In March of 2003, Saddam’s Minister of Information was everybody’s favorite inadvertent comedian. Sporting a kicky black beret and delightfully bombastic lexicon, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf appeared on TV daily to predict American failure and deny the Baghdad invasion–sometimes even as U.S. tanks appeared behind him…
In 2003 I doubt that even the most paranoid tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist in the United States could have imagined that in less than 10 years the President of the United States would be employing a fool who made Baghdad Bob look like an honest used camel salesman. Yet, here we are faced with the reality that Jay Carney shows every indication of being a successful graduate of the Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf Graduate School of Veracity.
When Marxist Fellow Traveler and Progressive leftist Icon Bob Woodard steps into the ring and declares that something a presidential administration has done is a scandal, well, it isn’t just a flying pig moment.
We heard from one half of the Watergate-exposing journalistic duo this week on the AP scandal, and now the other half weighs in on the supposedly waning Benghazi debate. The White House released 100 pages of e-mails that went around the administration on 9/14 — but oddly not on 9/12 or 9/13 — less than an hour before Barack Obama gave a speech on the IRS scandal and pushed the e-mails back into the background. Bob Woodward tells Morning Joe that they won’t stay in the background, because it shows an exercise by the White House to keep people from learning the truth about the terrorist attack … and that looks mighty familiar to him:
Via Daniel Halper:
“You were talking earlier about kind of dismissing the Benghazi issue as one that’s just political and the president recently said it’s a sideshow,” said Woodward. “But if you read through all these e-mails, you see that everyone in the government is saying, ‘Oh, let’s not tell the public that terrorists were involved, people connected to al Qaeda. Let’s not tell the public that there were warnings.’ I hate to show, this is one of the documents with the editing that one of the people in the state department said, ‘Oh, let’s not let these things out.’
And I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts to the conversations, and he personally went through them and said, ‘Oh, let’s not tell this, let’s not show this.’ I would not dismiss Benghazi. It’s a very serious issue. As people keep saying, four people were killed. You look at the hydraulic pressure that was in the system to not tell the truth, and, you know, we use this term and the government uses this term, talking points. Talking points, as we know, are like legal briefs. They’re an argument on one side. What we need to get rid of talking point and they need to put out statements or papers that are truth documents. Okay, this is all we know.”
Let’s face reality, Bob Woodard has for all intents and purposes just ask the question that made former Senator Fred Thompson famous, “What did the President know, and when did he know it”. Woodward may be a lot of things, a Progressive Liberal Leftist Marxist without a doubt, but two words that will never be associated with any accuracy to Robert Woodward are, imbecile or fool.
Before Bob Woodward interjected himself into the Benghazi scandal there can be absolutely zero possibility of anyone believing that he was unaware of or naive to what the consequences of his taking a position contrary to that of the establishment Democrat Party official party line on the subject. There can be absolutely no question or doubt that Bob Woodward was/is fully aware of what the consequences of his actions would be.
Bob Woodward is not a Conservative or a Republican, what he is, is a Progressive Liberal fellow traveler. He has spent the majority of his adult life in the service of the Progressive Liberal Agenda. Across the US there are legions of Progressive Liberal Marxists scrambling to find ways to discredit Bob Woodward because of his stating unequivocally that Benghazi is an even more atrocious scandal than Watergate was.
Behold and watch in amazement, outside the gates a chorus of liars have arisen and from their mouths proceeds forth a tumultuous cacophony of lies.
