SENATORS CALL FOR OUTSIDE SPECIAL COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE ‘WHITE HOUSE INNER CIRCLE’
This story begs two questions: Is Barack Obama the Democrats’ Richard Nixon? And – is the “independent counsel” announced by Eric “My People” Holder to investigate national security leaks a political ploy – designed to bury the “investigation” in secrecy at least until after the election? The answer to both questions is “DUH.”
As for Barack Hussein and Richard Milhaus; more on them later.
Let’s talk about Eric “My People” Holder’s appointment of two U.S. attorneys to investigate national security leaks. John McCain, the leading critic of this most recent flow of national security leaks, rejected outright Holder’s appointment on Friday of an “independent counsel” to investigate the leaks, arguing that only an outside counsel would be independent enough for the job. Geez, John – after the outstanding job that Holder’s done with the New Black Panther thugs voter intimidation case and the Fast and Furious scandal, how could you possibly question his integrity?
Anyone who doesn’t believe that Holder quickly announced the appointment of “independent counsel” to investigate Leakgate with the sole intent of heading off congressional hearings is either smoking crack, drinking the O-man’s Kool-Aid or both.
The Regime is in trouble – and it knows it. McCain and Lindsey Graham know it as well; they issued a joint statement Friday night:
“These breaches of national security have compromised operations, strained relationships with allies, and put lives at risk. It is imperative that an independent investigation be conducted where the results could be accepted with a high degree of confidence and without a hint of political considerations. We are confident the two U.S. attorneys hand-picked by Attorney General Holder are fine men. However, if there was ever a situation where we needed an outside special counsel that would enjoy bipartisan acceptance and widespread public trust, it is now.
This investigation involves some of the most serious breaches of national security in recent memory and any investigation must be done in a manner free and clear of political considerations.The recent decision of the attorney general falls far short of what is needed and is not an adequate substitute for an outside special counsel.”
More ominous for the Regime; this is not a bipartisan attack by Republicans in an election year. Democrats John Kerry and Dianne Feinstein – not exactly moderates – have condemned the leaks and pledged to conduct their own investigations as well. Said Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee:
“This is like an avalanche. It is very detrimental and, candidly, I found it very concerning. There’s no question that this kind of thing hurts our country.”
Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was just as blunt:
“A number of those leaks, and others in the last months about drone activities and other activities, are frankly all against national-security interests. I think they’re dangerous, damaging, and whoever is doing that is not acting in the interest of the United States of America.”
Setting aside the pathetic joke that “the most transparent administration in history” has become, the Regime is in a helluva fix. It cannot simply blame the Republicans – or Europe, hurricanes or the Japanese tsunami this time. When John Kerry and Dianne Feinstein join the fray – it’s time to circle the paranoid wagons. As if the Regime didn’t do that from Day One.
Sooner or later, it’s going to come down to “What did the president know and when did he know it? Richard Nixon must be smiling. Like Nixon, Obama is a paranoid control freak who will stubbornly stand his ground – until it becomes necessary to start throwing anyone and everyone under the bus – in a last ditch effort to save his own ass. In the end – like Nixon – he’ll play the aggrieved party – a victim of everyone but himself.
It’ll be fascinating to watch; who will burst into flames first – Carney the Clown, or the O-man himself?
Can’t wait to watch O come unglued during the first presidential debate.
