Washington Post Praises Embattled White House Counsel for Her Fancy Shoes

Clearly, there's blood in the water, and there was a time when the Washington Post would be first in line throwing chum, trying to press the embattled White House counsel about what she knew, when she knew it, and why she kept the information from the president. But, not today's Washington Post. Monday's edition featured an article about Ruemmler, but its focus was on her fancy, high heeled shoes. No, this is not a satire. May 28, 2013 4:30 AM PT

U.S. Attorney Investigating Fox News Donated to Obama

Over the years, he has donated $4,350 to Obama's campaigns. He gave $250 to Obama's U.S. Senate campaign in 2003, a year before Obama, then an Illinois state senator, emerged on the nation's political radar, according to campaign finance records. May 21, 2013 7:54 PM PT

Eugene Robinson Hammers Obama Over AP

The provocative headline "Obama administration mistakes journalism for espionage" doesn't appear in a traditionally conservative paper like the NY Post or Wall Street Journal; it's in the Washington Post. And before you equivocate, no, it's not hovering over the byline of Charles Krauthammer or George Will at WaPo, it's accompanying a column by long-time Obama apologist Eugene Robinson.

White House Correspondent: Carney Should 'Threaten To Resign'

Jay Carney's credibility is now on the line, according to veteran White House correspondent Keith Koffler. He reports today, at White House Dossier, that Monday's briefing by Carney was filled with acrimony over the ever-evolving narrative put forth by the White House Press Secretary over the Inspector General report dealing with the inappropriate targeting of conservative groups by the IRS.

Carney Can't (Or Won't) Name 'Senior Staff' Who Knew About IRS Report

We also learned, from press secretary Jay Carney, that many other members of the President's "senior staff" knew about the report and purposely failed to inform their boss, Barack Obama. When pressed about the names of these "senior staff" members, Carney replied "I don't have a list for you." Was this his way of refusing to disclose the names? Or, was he merely saying that he didn't have the names "at that moment" and will provide them later? May 21, 2013 7:29 AM PT

Woodward: White House Lied

"You look at the whole Benghazi thing. You look at those talking points and the initial draft by the CIA very explicitly said we know that activists who have ties to Al-Qaeda were involved in the attack. Then you see what comes out a couple of days later and there is no reference to this. This is a business where you have to tell the truth and that did not happen here." May 19, 2013 11:19 AM PT

Schieffer On IRS Scandal: 'Dumb And Dumber'

CBS News' Bob Schieffer took aim at the Obama White House today and their involvement in the IRS scandal.

CNN's Cooper 'Marries' SNL's Stefon In Weekend Update Sketch

Hader's flamboyant character, Stefon, is a regular on Myers' Weekend Update segment and there has been an ongoing, flirtatious subtext to the segment between the two and that plot line came to full fruition this week as Myers chased after Stefon (in the style of "The Graduate") to interrupt his marriage. As the camera pans to reveal the church setting Stefon's groom is revealed: CNN's newsman Anderson Cooper. May 19, 2013 9:00 AM PT

Clinton WH Counsel Calls for Obama Counsel to Resign

Former White House Counsel during the Clinton Administration, Lanny Davis, is calling for the resignation of Obama White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler. "I've no doubt she is an outstanding lawyer. But you've gotta be more than a lawyer in that job, and with all due respect, I think she made the wrong judgment. This is the wrong job for her." May 17, 2013 7:39 AM PT

Geraldo 'Can't Imagine' IRS Henchwoman Was Rewarded for Harassing Conservative Groups

"I can’t imagine that she was rewarded for targeting conservative groups by getting that big job, because I think the president is smart enough to know that if you take someone who is wounded in that way, they have this metastasizing disease, this scandal, attached to them, and you give them a big job, it’s not going to protect them."

Woodward Compares Benghazi To Watergate

Bob Woodward appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" this Friday morning and, in stark contrast to his less-concerned Watergate colleague Carl Bernstein, he admonished the show's hosts to "not dismiss Benghazi" and compared the White House's behavior over CIA/State Department talking points with President Nixon's handling of edited transcripts of taped conversations in the oval office.

MSNBC Analyst: Breitbart Sets GOP Agenda

"I think what you're seeing is right wing media, that has taken hold among the base. Whether it's conservative talk radio, whether it's online, all now fused together as the Republican agenda on Capitol Hill. Right now this is not about legislating anymore, this is about John Boehner, who was seen as an outsider to the tea party movement within the party, now bringing together all the conspiracy theories, all of the fear of the Obama Administration, under one umbrella. So now we see the right wing media agenda, which we used to see as outside the purvue of Washington, brought inside." May 17, 2013 3:25 AM PT

Rubio Blames Obama's 'Culture of Intimidation' for IRS Scandal

“This is not in isolation. This is a string of events where you see an administration and federal government under this administration that’s willing to use its power to muscle and to hardball people who don’t agree with them,. And now it appears to include The Associated Press. There’s a problem here. One thing is politics as you’ve outlined and another thing is full time, 24/7, 365-day-a-year political effort where everything is about politics. Everything is about destroying your opponent, and everything is about dividing the American people for your electoral gain.” May 16, 2013 11:47 AM PT

Ari Fleischer: White House Claim Of 'One Word Change' To Talking Points Not True

"I look at these emails and I say, 'you know what, that's just simply not true,'" Wilson said, regarding the assertion that only one word was changed in the talking points. "On that issue, I think you're entirely right about that. And, I think the emails show that's right," Fleischer responded. May 16, 2013 9:05 AM PT
