OBAMA ADM. BIGGEST CONTROL FREAK I'VE EVER COVERED

In a long piece revealing the current antagonistic climate between journalists and the Obama administration published in the Washington Post, Obama is called a "control-freak," as well as "secretive," and "manipulative," it is said he is fostering an atmosphere of fear both at home and abroad, and is delivering a "slap in the face" to reporters all over his increased use of electronic surveillance of reporters.

The piece is an excerpt of a paper by former executive editor of The Washington Post, Leonard Downie, who is currently the Weil family professor of journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University.

Downie's piece is extraordinary in how it paints Obama as a paranoid, secretive, even vindictive president not to mention that it reveals that journalists have become afraid of their own shadows for fear that Obama is spying on them.

With as negatively as President Obama is depicted in this article and with the fear and loathing that Obama generates in these journalists, it is a wonder that so many of them still buoy his administration at nearly every turn. It is a dichotomy that shows just how much journalists allow their ideology to control their professional lives.

But some of the charges against Obama in this article are stark and indicates just how out of the mainstream this President has been at least as far as how he treats the press.

The piece describes the great lengths to which reporters of national security stories have gone to protect themselves and their sources from overzealous prosecution by Obama and his Department of Justice.

One way reporters are reacting is to only meet sources face-to-face, or better yet, through intermediaries so that sources can honestly claim they never met with a reporter when dragged before investigators by Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.

Downie notes that Obama has used the 1917 Espionage Act in cases for which no president has ever invoked it, he points out how Obama is using electronic surveillance without telling reporters or their news agencies that he's doing so, and he lists some of the many government officials that Obama has prosecuted or made to quit their jobs over what he calls "espionage" or "spying."

The piece quotes several reports that are frightened to perform their job.
Downie notes that New York Times reporter Scott Shane, "whose e-mail traffic with the former CIA officer was seized, told me that the chilling lesson 'is that seemingly innocuous e-mails not containing classified information can be construed as a crime.'"

The piece also reveals that Obama is illegitimately characterizing leakers as "spies" but who are better thought of as whistleblowers about improper government practices or actions and, worse, Obama is prosecuting them as such.

Naturally, as is Obama's wont, his Department of Justice blames the Bush administration for all this over reacting, but Downie makes it clear in his piece that it is Obama's people who have ramped up the surveillance and prosecutions to a level never before seen, a level far above what even Bush conducted.

It all makes for a paranoid administration, Downie indicates.

The author reports that David E. Sanger, who has worked for the Times in Washington for twenty years, said,“This is most clamps on information. This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.”

Hey, RC Co-Cola. It's been raining off and on since about noon, a wonderful steady, soaking rain. It's coming down pretty good now and lightning's popping a little too close for comfort, but you can practically hear the ground soaking it up.

Thanks for the compliment - there's just no way that the GOP can shift the blame for this, and Boehner's actions are criminal and cowardly.

GOP In Grave Danger Of Losing House In 2014, PPP Polls Show

Shutting down the government may end up costing Republicans control of the House of Representatives.

A series of polls released Sunday show just how damaging the shutdown has been for the GOP. The liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling compiled two dozen surveys, commissioned and paid for by MoveOn.org Political Action, from House districts around the country, taken from Oct. 2 through Oct. 4. Sample sizes were between 600 and 700 voters in each district.

For Democrats to win a House majority, 17 seats would need to switch to their party's favor.

Results show that would be within reach, as Republican incumbents are behind in 17 of the districts analyzed: CA-31, CO-06, FL-02, FL-10, FL-13, IA-03, IA-04, IL-13, KY-06, MI-01, MI-07, MI-11, NY-19, OH-14, PA-07, PA-08, WI-07. In four districts, the incumbent Republican fell behind after respondents were told their representative supported the government shutdown: CA-10, NY-11, NY-23, VA-02. Three districts saw GOP incumbents maintain their hold over their Democratic challengers, even after hearing their elected officials' views on the shutdown, including CA-21, NV-03 and OH-06.

Back in 2012, Democrats picked up eight seats in the House, closing the gap of Republican control to 234-201. For a full breakdown of the PPP surveys, click here.

Don't get me wrong, if any regressives lose their seats it'll be good riddance to bad rubbish, but honestly, RC, there's more than a few Dems that need to lose theirs, too.

Until some term limits are in place, there's going to be "lifers" on both sides of the aisle that need to go. Term limits would discourage the kind of "hang on at all costs" behavior being currently exhibited by Boehner (or Bonehead Faketan, as Tab calls him :D), and might encourage more diversity in Congress. I think more candidates would throw their hats in the ring if they knew they wouldn't be up against entrenched politicians.

Ted Cruz Says He Has 'Not Remotely' Hurt Republican Image With Shutdown Fight

Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) rejected the suggestion that members of his own party are unhappy with him for pursuing a fight over Obamacare into a government shutdown.

Asked by host Candy Crowley whether his actions have "hurt the Republican Party brand," Ted Cruz said no.

"Not remotely, but I also think far too many people are worried about politics" in the shutdown fight, Cruz said.

Cruz repeated several times his claim that he didn't want the government to shut down, and he bemoaned the "nasty partisan jabs from Democrats" over his role in the shutdown.

I agree. Hell they could send them all home for all I care. Except for Yarmuth (who gives up their salary from the time they were elected), he works for the people of Kentucky only. Term limits would be nice. It would keep them more honest. No career politicians like turtleman. CONgress is a mess. I agree. Mostly repukes though. lol

I can't agree with you on this one, Tab. Yes, the federal workers are getting paid, but what about the ancillary folks? The local restaurants that depend on business from the Hill, companies that provide office supplies, caterers, etc.? There are a whole lot more folks than just the federal workers involved in this.

That Congress is still getting paid is just heinous, but I'm not all that enthusiastic about paying the federal employees for not working, either. I'm sure they deserve vacations, but I'd rather they not be subsidized by my taxes, you know?

To me, it's not worth it just to show the GOP up for the idiots they are. Besides, they do something stupid pretty much every day, so it's not like there's not going to be ample opportunity to use their stupidity against them ;)

Lee Terry Apologizes For Refusing To Give Up Salary During Shutdown To Pay For His 'Nice House'

Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.) apologized Saturday for previously refusing to give up his congressional salary during the federal government shutdown, deciding instead to have his paycheck withheld until the shutdown is over.

"The other day I made a statement that I would put my needs above others in crisis," Terry said in a statement. "I'm ashamed of my comments. It was not leadership. It is not how I was raised... I apologize for my hurtful remarks when so many others are feeling the pain of Washingtons dysfunction."

He continued,I should and will stand in the shoes of the federal civilian employees who are furloughed. We share the same responsibilities to pay our bills and if they don't receive a paycheck and must take extraordinary efforts and sacrifice to pay them, then I should too."

Last week, Terry was asked by the Omaha World-Herald Bureau whether he would keep his salary for the duration of the budget standoff.
"Dang straight," he replied.

The congressman said his colleagues who were giving up their salaries were largely doing so for the publicity.

"Whatever gets them good press," Terry said. "That's all that it's going to be. God bless them. But you know what? I've got a nice house and a kid in college, and I'll tell you we cannot handle it. Giving our paycheck away when you still worked and earned it? That's just not going to fly."

Over 800,000 federal workers are currently furloughed due to the shutdown. On Saturday, the House voted to grant backpay to these workers; however, the checks could be delayed for some time depending on how long the shutdown lasts.

Members of Congress will continue to earn their constitutionally-protected salaries $174,000 annually for rank-and-file members throughout the shutdown. Over 100 members have said they will either refuse or donate their earnings until the government reopens.
