Obama Denies National Security Leaks, New York Times Denies Taking Dictation
Look, folks, somebody has leaked — three times — very detailed and very damaging stuff. Do you see any sense of urgency at the White House to find out who? All we got today was Obama saying he’s offended that anybody would think it’s him. But how can he be offended if he doesn’t know who’s leaking? No, that’s not deep. Being offended is being offended. If you’re offended somebody thinks you’re leaking, then you have to know something about it. I think this is a great, great example of how inside-the-Beltway Washington does not understand what we’re dealing with here.
In the old world of Washington where on things like this the two parties genuinely did come together, special prosecutor get to the bottom of it, and then in that fight the partisanship erupts and people try to protect turf and so forth. But to get to the bottom of it, at least put on the show of caring to get to the bottom of it, would happen. So they’re all lining up and only experts are predicting a special prosecutor. “Oh, yeah, gotta be one, no question about it.” There isn’t gonna be a special prosecutor. This is the regime that defies federal judges. A federal judge said this moratorium on drilling is illegal. And Ken Salazar, the interior secretary, said, “(raspberry) you. We’re gonna enforce our moratorium.” They didn’t care about the Constitution when they wrote Obamacare. And they argued to maintain a piece of legislation that is unconstitutional.
This issue has served its purpose. There’s a book out there now about how courageous and macho Obama is. There are news stories about how he’s Mr. Tough Guy. He’s looking to Kill Lists and he’s personally picking the bad-guy targets. Well, that’s important because up ’til now people have questioned just how much Obama really is interested in the War on Terror. Don’t think it’s a big deal. If you go back and listen to him talk, the things he said about the war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan and Club Gitmo and everything else, he didn’t take it seriously, wasn’t a problem. The problem was Obama looked like a wuss. Problem solved now.
