The executive branch (Obama administration) does not order the judicial branch (DOJ) to do anything.

That's pretty hilarious. Are you Jay Carney's assistant?

The judicial branch didn't provide an order to get the AP phone records. The DOJ does not fall under the judicial branch.

The phone companies gave up the records at the request of the DOJ.

Of course we didn't! We simply believed Obama was a far better choice than that old fuk and his idiotic sidekick.

Obama's so slick he's got smart guys like Wes bullshitted into believing he is against all the rotten things his own administration is doing.

It's not Obama. No. It's the Justice Department who f*#ked up ( AP phone tap ). Or it was Treasury ( IRS abuse of power ). Or the State Department ( Benghazi cover-up ). Or the Justice Department again ( "fast & furious" ).

Obama has nothing to do with any of it, and he'd fix it if only the Republicans would let him.

It is a bit odd that bush gets the personal blame for EVERY dept and debacle under his terms yet obama gets a free pass with many?

I occasionally talk via phone with my Iranian friend - and wonder if those calls are monitored. It would be funny if they do as the comparisons of their govt and ours is similar in strange ways. Most interesting when by buddy says things like,," ohw its just the same for you then"!??

It's not odd at all. Have you watched seen how Bush gets a free pass from conservatives like on The Five on Fox? Hear anything about Benghazi lately?

Hypocrisy is not limited to liberals or conservatives. Many will always give their guy a free pass. Many will be disgusted with both Bush and Obama.

Really, they tapped phones? Are you sure? You might want to double check with some credible sources. Runaway bullshit storm from Chaz again! Your puppet masters are proud.

Ain't no tapping... just records of who called who.

Not sure how it is different than what came out in 2006 where it was revealed that the NSA had amassed a HUGE list of who was calling who... with NO apparent reason other than to "analyze calling patterns."

Maybe a repugnikunt can explain why there is so much apparent outrage in this case, but not in the case of the Snatch led NSA amassing the same information on ALL citizens?

no way of knowing if that is factually true or not, booky

but certainly most everyone would agree much much more transparent than the administration you voted for, twice

try harder, booky, keep looking under rocks....

"nobody suffered more leaks than W; if his doj had illegally acquired the phone records of any press org, you libs would be screaming "impeach!""

Hahahaha, Alberto Gonzalez was, without any doubt, the most incompetent AG in US history. He would have botched that prosecution just like he botched all the others.

This administration could nuke Nepal and publicly advocate sodomizing baby seals and the majority of the democrats on this site would continue to defend Obama... just like the repubs defended Bush while he VASTLY expanded the size of the government and the national debt, trashed our civil rights, started two wars, legitimized torture, etc, etc.

"It's not Obama. No. It's the Justice Department who f*#ked up ( AP phone tap ). "


Hahahahaha, no phones were tapped. Do you understand the difference between obtaining records of phone calls, and listening to the actual phone calls - apparently not.


Hilarious.

From John Woo's editorial:

"If the AP's editors and reporters and their colleagues at other newspapers had been more adversarial toward this President, as they were with President Bush, they would been treated with far more respect."

Oh please. There was never any need for the press to be adversarial towards the Bush admin in the first place - the Bush admin was, by far, more of an adversary to itself than the press ever possibly could have been.

Please let us know when ANYTHING actually linked to the Obama WH even faintly approaches this:

Seizing? Seizing... really? When they "secretly obtained" the records... you call that "seizing?"

Gawd you people are fuking insane.
