Screw all this BS. I just want to know if the White House Tours are safe and if I can ride along with the Obama's on their $100 Million African Vacation.

Ah another one that can’t read. Its all about the chasm laddie;
Truth is, You have received discourse that you fail to answerer other than accusing one of this or that and no substance as to the issue. Exhibiting the symptoms of a projectionist.{Intoxicated Teabaggers}
Tea Party validate their vindictive policies with various hyper false red herrings. Example; IRS issue has always been used by all administrations dating back to F.D.R. Only difference with the Obama administration is that it started from the bottom up, as all others started from top down. Another red herring is Benghazi, and if you will remember Libya, lack of security issues. Considering it was the Tea Party leading with the Hue and Cry to deny Obama’s request for additional funds to increase security to our embassies’, right after the Libyan War. Now they PROJECT their errors onto the Executive branch. Using this to validate their need to hold Congress and the Nation into another Hostage/Ransom, Our Way or The Highway scenarios. Refusing any conferences that promotes a budget. Accusing democrats of over reach and obfuscation.??? Hmmm Paradox leadership.. Tea promotes Emperor ideologies.
Gazing at some of these comments I see people stating thoughts that they can not defend. Just what the Truth is, You can’t say anymore, nevermore…

The truth behind their lies
"OBAMA" WHISTLE BLOWERS:
1. John Kiriakou - Sentenced to 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to disclosing the name of a covert CIA officer to a member of the media.
Typical Bush/Cheney move. No surprise that cons would think he did nothing wrong.
2. Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, the Defense Department employee who allegedly leaked classified information to Fox News reporter James Rosen.
Cons will give a free ride to anyone associated with "Fox News"
3. Bradley Manning - Passed hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks.
Even cons were upset over that one.
4. Shamai Leibowitz who as a contract linguist for the FBI, leaked transcripts of wiretaps of the Israeli embassy to blogger Richard Silverstein, because he feared that Israel was about to launch an attack on the Iranian nuclear program.
WHISTLE BLOWERS UNDER BUSH:
1. Jeffery Sterling, a CIA employee who was indicted under the Espionage Act for allegedly leaking information about the Agency's efforts against Iran's nuclear program, to James Risen between 2002 and 2004.
"Between 2002 and 2004 the U.S. federal government intercepted several interstate emails to and from Sterling, which were "(...) routed through a server located in the Eastern District of Virginia (...)". The authorities also traced telephone calls between Sterling and - according to a senior government official[1]- the journalist and book author James Risen. In the intercepted communications Sterling allegedly revealed national defense information to an unauthorized person."
2. Thomas Drake - A former senior NSA official, Thomas Drake was accused, in 2007, of leaking classified information on NSA waste and mismanagement, related to the Trailblazer program, to The Baltimore Sun.
3. Lawrence Franklin - A Pentagon official who was arrested in 2005 for leaking classified information about the US' Iran policy to members of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Here is when we get to add to the list of countries/territories that attacked us on 9-11, Palestine.
Hey stupid, it wasn't a country or a territory that attacked us, it was an ideology. It's either naive or pitifully partisan how you differentiate Islamic terrorists depending on the victims they blow up.

Bush On Jobs: The Worst Track Record On Record
http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/01/09/bus...
(That fact from the Wall Street Journal.)
Well, that's just a ridiculous comparison.

Clinton had the dot.com bubble that eventually burst just in time for his exit and a Republican congress who stabilized the budget even though Clinton was smart enough to go along with them.

Bush not only had 9/11 temporarily disrupting job growth but, by the end of his term, had the housing market collapse also which would obviously affect the overall job growth percentage number.

He isn't to blame for either crises. So those numbers of comparison have no comparison to other presidents who didn't have a 9/11 or a housing market collapse on their watch.

Leon Panetta did not purposefully leak information. He didn't run to the foreign press & cut some sort of deal.
He should have waited for the books to be published first.
It was a prepared speech. You liberals are the dumbest of the dumb. Of course Panetta cut some sort of deal-It's only a good leak if the O'bama administration thinks if helps them. This administration leaks all over the place or is that pisses?

Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed the name of the Navy SEAL unit that carried out the Osama bin Laden raid and named the unit’s ground commander at a 2011 ceremony attended by “Zero Dark Thirty” filmmaker Mark Boal.

Panetta also discussed classified information designated as “top secret” and “secret” during his presentation at the awards ceremony, according to a draft Pentagon inspector general’s report published Wednesday by the Project on Government Oversight.

The Espionage Act is a law from 1917 that was intended to criminalize individuals who engaged in spying, not leakers or whistleblowers. And she can't count. Further more she forgot Snowden.
Here are the other 7:
NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake was charged under the law in April 2010 for retaining classified information on secret surveillance programs. The government claimed it was for the purpose of disclosure.

For disclosing classified information on FBI wiretaps to a blogger, FBI translator named Shamai Leibowitz was charged under the Espionage Act.

Pfc. Bradley Manning was charged with multiple violations of the Espionage Act in July 2010 after disclosing US government information to WikiLeaks.

Stephen Kim, a former State Department contractor, was charged in August 2010 for revealing classified information on North Korea to Fox News reporter James Rosen.(Rosen was labeled an “aider, abettor and co-conspirator” in the leak.)

In December 2010, a former CIA officer, Jeffrey Sterling, was charged under the Espionage Act after he communicated with New York Times reporter James Risen about Iran’s nuclear program in the 1990s.(The Obama Justice Department has fought in the courts to have a judge require Risen to testify against Sterling.)

John Kiriakou, a former CIA officer, was charged under the Espionage Act in January 2012 after he shared information related to a rendition operation with reporter Matthew Cole.

A much lesser-known individual, James Hitselberger, a former Navy linguist, was charged with violating the Espionage Act for providing classified documents to the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

And now Snowden. More than likely O'bama will try to charge as many Americans as he can. The Leaker in Chief.

If Bush43 had been a 'democrat' then you and Fox & Friends would have nailed him for lack of leadership, and running up the national debt by 1.5 trillion dollars on two unpaid for foreign wars and a Medicare D bribe to potential elderly voters in Florida.
