The last paragraph of the article makes its purpose clear. The intent of the
authors is to prove support for President Obama and progressives in general, not
to cover the hearings.
SME, you are correct. It's interesting how even in the midst of the
AP phone records scandal, the AP quickly reverts to its traditional unfailing
support of all things dem.
We now have learned that at least 10 D Senators led by Schummer and Franklin
(whose own election was dubious) sent letters to the IRS threatening them if
they did not give conservative groups special scrutiny.
When government fears the people there is democracy. When people fear the
government there is tyranny. This administration and liberals in
general have confirmed this aphorism. The state has become all powerful and not
the people. Power to the people was once a liberal battle cry and now it is the
tea party's motto. We condemn the governmental abuses by Putin and in
Venezuela, but become inured to the same practices in the US. Democratic
senators have goaded the IRS to target certain groups and now they
sanctimoniously condemn it. Jay Catrney's double-speak has become the
poster child for the Obama White House.
Why would this official say she broke no laws and then assert her 5th amendment
right? To do so is actually admitting (in an unofficial way) that you have
indeed broke laws and have engaged in dubious behavior, but refuse to officially
admit it. Where there is smoke, there is fire. And with the current
administration, we are now seeing lots of smoke... and mirrors. Voter beware!
Unfortunately, we are starting to get what we voted for... at least
collectively. Individually, there were many of us that could see these sorts of
things coming long ago. And unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
More dubiousness will be forthcoming from this promised "most open and
transparent administration in presidential history".
And Obama pleads the fifth on the tax scandal.
