"Despite President Obama’s claim this week that “there is no spying on Americans,” the evidence shows that such spying is greater than the public ever knew."*
*I love how the author doesn't even mention the President until late in the article. Just sayin'
Another shot? Another shot:
Obama approval at 44%.
People are starting to turn.
Which means that it's time for an "open" presser where Dear Leader will take unscripted questions from an unbiased media.
In short, nothing will be answered. This is all a show before The One goes on a vacation that none of us could ever afford.
Benghazi will not be mentioned. Last week is evidence that this topic is clearly off limits to those who still want to sit at the cool kids table. Which is a shame; three simple questions still need to be answered:
1) Where was the President?
2) Who ordered the stand down?
3) Who came up with the YouTube theory?
The IRS scandal will be touched, but only slightly. Something akin to "how's the investigation going?" and the acolytes will all say "WE DID OUR JOB".
Foreign policy with Putin will be questioned. The President will steam out half-truths and puff his chest. But we all know what happened: Jar Jar tried to bargain with Emperor Palpatine (ed-I stole this from someone on twitter I cannot remember who).
Softball questions will be lobbed. The softballs will have "Republican" written on them. Probably about immigration.
Filner, Weiner will not be touched (ed-GIGGITY).
UPDATE: the presser apparently will only cover US/Russian relations. Or something. Still wishing someone would grow a pair and ask a real question. Still sticking with my "softball" prediction, because you know it's mandatory to roll out Emmanuel Goldstein.
Anyhoo, will be looking for a house down in NoVa this weekend. Pickings are slim-found the perfect house yesterday and it was already under contract. It was on the market for a whole 7 days.
