    I don't want to make it black and white. That's a hallmark of how the right sees things. Everything they don't like is "Liberal." Anti-semitism, racism, Nazism - must be libbos.

    If, as the right often claims, the scary liberal media is run by the administration, why would they want to do that to their lapdogs?

    From the article:



    We get it. You're cool with this because the Obama Administration did it.
    I didn't defend anything.

    I just find it interesting that Obama would go after his "lapdogs." Disproves something you've said in the past.

    Disproves what?

    That even Obama's lapdogs aren't immune to this corrupt administration abusing it's powers and crapping all over the Constitution?

    Um, I'm not usually one to complain about how being a white male makes me overly persecuted.

    It disproves this idea that the librul media only do what the administration tells them to do. You don't care about inconsistency - if it's bad about Democrats.

    Perfect example of your black and white thinking.

    The opposite is closer to the truth. I think you are thinking about how Liberals think that Fox news runs the Republican party.

    It doesn't disprove anything of the sort

    If anything it strengthens the contention that even allies of this corrupt administration aren't immune from Fascist tactics such as this. Goebbels had the press in his back pocket. Do you think that stopped him from monitoring their activities? There is a clear pattern of behavior here. The Obama Administration has repeatedly abused it's powers and used government agencies at it's disposable to further it's political agenda. Whether it be harassing and intimidating the Tea Party and other groups with the IRS, to using the justice department to secretly tap press phone records. Clearly this administration doesn't believe there are limits to it's powers. With multiple scandals already raging and the lapdog press starting to ask serious questions to salvage what little credibility it has left, it wouldn't surprise me if this story was leaked to send a message to the press. "Don't get out of line"

    If B00sh did this you'd be screaming impeachment. Since it's Obama you're reduced to defending Gestapo tactics. Good luck with that.

    We were screaming and none of the GOP was listening back in 2006. I think it's highly hypocritical of anyone from the right side of politics using a process by a GOP lawmaking body and President they thought was OK in 2006 but now are condemning. Why? Presently, the GOP could get rid of that in the House and I'm sure the Senate would vote to get rid of it, but they're too busy voting on getting rid of a worker's rights to receive overtime right now.

    Its like their just checking off violating of the Bill of Rights.

    violate freedom of religion by forcing religious institutions to pay for birth control - check
    violate freedom of the press by investigating AP phone records - check
    violate right to bear arms by trying to pass gun control - check
