As is their pattern, defenders of the president offer a straw man in regard to the subpoena of Associated Press phone records: Shouldn’t we investigate leaks? Duh, yes. The entire question, however, revolves around the extent of the probe and … Continue reading ?
When Attorney General Eric Holder appeared at a Judiciary Committee hearing this week, most of the attention was on Benghazi. My colleague Glenn Kessler reports on a less widely remarked upon exchange this week between Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Holder during the … Continue reading ?
This was arguably the most consequential week of President Obama’s second term, maybe of either. What changed? The insanity of allowing the Internal Revenue Service to implement and police Obamacare reached its apex when ABC News reported: The Internal Revenue … Continue reading ?
No grown-ups around. “If it wasn’t clear that President Obama’s policy on Syria is simply bizarre, Secretary of State John Kerry’s hat-in-hand trip to Russia last week should lay bare the reality. Asking Russia to support U.S. interests in Syria … Continue reading ?
President Obama’s press conference in the rain was not a success, if by success, his supporters would mean an event which convinces anyone who doesn’t work for him that he’s getting ahead of the scandal deluge. The sight of a … Continue reading ?
The uncommunicative communications team at the White House seems to think “I had no idea” and “I learned from the newspapers” are answers befitting the president in response to the plethora of scandals. They are not aware, apparently, that the … Continue reading ?

Conservatives, including some Republican congressmen, say emails released by the Obama administration confirm that the White House was lying about the Benghazi incident. The White House says it supports its version. Some Media Matters wanna-bes in the left-wing blogosphere say … Continue reading ?
