  • ninja

    MSNBC……………….Just might see a rise in viewers to watch their reaction to the WH briefing.

  • Sicilian Papa

  • Stan T

    I just have to laugh…I thought Benghazi was just a FOx News thing…sure sounds like it’s a BIG news story…EVERYONE is pressing Carney about it…another few days and even MSNBC will have to cover it…

  • Coffee Steve

    New York Times Lead Story right now

    *Carbon Dioxide Level Is at Its Highest in Human History

    That’s because of all the________(Hot Air) coming out of a certain press conference maybe?

  • Chriscee

    Why does the president cover for this TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

  • Chriscee

    Puke @ have a nice weekend….I hope they all have guilt trips all weekend.

  • Sicilian Papa

    The most corrupt and dishonest Administration in the history of America. That is saying something. Wow! this Chicago bunch is something else. I always thought this would happen.

  • SteveB

    The White house would be Wise to come out with the Truth, With the beating that Carney took today they Now Know that this will not go away. It doesn’t matter how much the Admin points the fingers at the Republicans The Reporters are finally getting it………… The Question Now is Will the Other Media Outlets ask the Administration for the Names of all the People that have been held back with threats.

  • Sicilian Papa

    When does O. start answering questions?

  • Chriscee

    It’s time for boehner to step up and start the impeachment process. I am sick of this POS administration.

  • Sicilian Papa

    IRS threats, intimidation of witnesses, lying about a terror attack, a massive cover up.

    The Chicago way!

  • mike0

    Didnt Nixon white house try to use the IRS against its enemies ?? Obama Admin looking more like the Nixon Admin. Barrack Milhouse Obama

    We now have the IRS enforcing Obamam Care this doesnt look good

  • Chriscee

    From Townhall:

    Unreal: WH Holds Off-the-Record Benghazi Briefing for Hand-Picked Reporters

    You can’t make this stuff up. Behold, the Obama/Media establishment literally coordinating behind closed doors on a story the White House keeps insisting is over:

    The White House held an off-the-record briefing with reporters on Friday afternoon to discuss recent revelations about the Benghazi investigation, sources familiar with the meeting tell POLITICO.

    The meeting began around 12:45 p.m. and postponed the daily, on-the-record White House press briefing to 1:45 p.m. White House press secretary Jay Carney did not respond to a request for confirmation of the meeting.

    The off-the-record session was announced to reporters in the wake of an ABC News report showing that White House and State Dept. officials were involved in revising the now-discredited CIA talking points about the attack on Benghazi.

    From Steven Hayes

    Fox reports that “several more” #Benghazi whistle blowers are considering coming forward, including CIA officials.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Sicilian Papa
    IRS threats, intimidation of witnesses, lying about a terror attack, a massive cover up.

    The Chicago way!

    Not saying it will, but so far with the Benghazi story, nothing yet is impeachable, however if it is ever discovered the IRS targeting was in any way constructed by anyone in the White House, look out! That is FULLY Impeachable

  • SteveB

    I am expecting One of the MSDNC reporters to come out with an Exclusive with Obama any minute, but none of the questions will be about Bengahzi. it will be about how Racist Homophobic, bigoted gun nut, woman hating Grandma Killing republicans are trying to bring him down.

  • Coffee Steve

    Fox reports that “several more” #Benghazi whistle blowers are considering coming forward, including CIA officials.

    Yep I posted that early this morning, it just wasn’t public at the time

  • Sicilian Papa

    If more witnesses come out of the woodwork O. is finished.

  • ninja

    @SP…………….And to think the IRS will be runnig our health care.
