AP Still in the Tank for Obama: ‘Obama tries to regain control amid controversies’

Posted by on May 15, 2013 at 8:41 pm

Even after Obama and Holder apparently violated their rights, some at the Associated Press are still trying to soften the blows to their Dearly Beloved Obama. Notice what used to be known as scandals are now mere controversies. Bumps in the road, as Obama says of four dead Americans.

Under mounting pressure, President Barack Obama on Wednesday released a trove of documents related to the Benghazi attack and forced out the top official at the Internal Revenue Service following revelations that the agency targeted conservative political groups. The moves were aimed at halting a perception spreading among both White House opponents and allies that the president has been passive and disengaged as controversies consume his second term.

There’s that word: Controversies. In fact, it’s there eight times in the story. Scandals? Twice. And one instance is in a quote from and RNC spokeswoman. Or man, as the AP calls her.

“If Obama really learned about the latest IRS and AP secret subpoena scandals in the news, who exactly is running the ship at the White House?” Republican National Committee spokesman Kirsten Kukowski said.

Meanwhile, poor Obama is distracted by all the controversy.

The president, seeking to keep up his more robust profile on the controversies, also said he would take questions from reporters Thursday at a previously scheduled news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Obama had addressed the IRS matter on Monday, but his measured words left many unsatisfied, particularly given that he had waited three days to address the developments. He also repeatedly asserted that he was waiting to find out if the reports were accurate, even though top IRS officials had already acknowledged the controversial actions.

Scandal and criminal behavior is now merely controversial.

    Well, he probably had another private meeting with the AP. In that meeting, he probably dropped them a goodies bag of promises of more illicit information.
    After all, he was probably performing some act of leftist cleansing through those wire taps. So, it’s all good.

    And for all those who talked about a sea change in the narrative; stop huffing whatever it is you have in your hands. The AP is rolling over, the SAME WEEK that we all found out that the dear leader went after them.

    They will not quit him, unless they think that it wil pave the way for hiliary and dems in 2014.They know what jon stewart said, the main problem to them is that these abuses of power are weapons against them. Given their choice, these stories would be in jars on the shelves in St kermit’s office.
