The old flip-flopper is at it again. Hanoi John Kerry was against compliance with a House subpoena on Benghazi before he was for it. After initially cringing from the House summons like a vampire from a mug of holy water, Kerry now tells Congress he looks forward to testifying — if only he wasn’t going to be out of town on the day of the hearings.
The problem for Obama, Kerry, and the Democrats, as always, is how to stonewall an inquiry while appearing to cooperate with it.
[…] we can count on spinmeisters in President Obama’s camp such as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to say things like Benghazi is old news and that Republicans are engaging in unfounded conspiracy theories. Carney’s line sounds like a re-booting of Hillary’s old lament about vast right-wing conspiracies. We can also count on Democratic partisans like Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi complaining: “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi! Why aren’t we talking about something else?”
Well, we could talk about one of the other two dozen Obama scandals, if you’d like. Keith Koffler at White House Dossier has a list:
Obama claims that Republicans are busy probing “phony scandals.” But the sheer number of scandals suggests that misbehavior, abuse of power, and possibly corruption are not something being dreamed up by the GOP, but a defining characteristic of the Obama administration. Here is a full list of the administration’s most egregious scandals. The ones we know about, at least. I’ve added four since the last time we ran the list – an increase of 20 percent!
Read ’em quickly. If Obama and his minions have their way, the journalistic enemies of the Left will soon be part of the fossil record — gone with the wind, just like the victims of Benghazi:
Government officials, reacting to the growing voice of conservative news outlets, especially on the internet, are angling to curtail the media’s exemption from federal election laws governing political organizations, a potentially chilling intervention that the chairman of the Federal Election Commission is vowing to fight …
Goodman cited several examples where the FEC has considered regulating conservative media, including Sean Hannity’s radio show and Citizens United’s movie division. Those efforts to lift the media exemption died in split votes at the politically evenly divided board, often with Democrats seeking regulation. Liberals over the years have also pushed for a change in the Federal Communications Commission’s “fairness doctrine” to cut off conservative voices…
In the Obama Nation, sooner or later they’ll make you hold your peace.
