As Obama’s poll numbers continue to slide
As the country gets that palpable sense that we are heading in the wrong direction.
The Democrats decide to pull out their oft used tactic…..blame Bush for everything:
Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee decided to reveal CIA Director Leon Panetta’s admission that the agency misled Congress after waiting weeks with no response from Panetta, sources familiar with the matter tell POLITICO.
The Democrats, in a letter released Wednesday night, said “top CIA officials have concealed significant actions… and misled” members of Congress since 2001.
Notice the time period? Yeah…
In a June 26 letter to Mr. Panetta discussing his testimony, Democrats said that the agency had “misled members” of Congress for eight years about the classified matters, which the letter did not disclose. “This is similar to other deceptions of which we are aware from other recent periods,” said the letter, made public late Wednesday by Representative Rush D. Holt, Democrat of New Jersey, one of the signers.
In an interview, Mr. Holt declined to reveal the nature of the C.I.A.’s alleged deceptions,. But he said, “We wouldn’t be doing this over a trivial matter.”
Just can’t make this stuff up. Panetta said there was no such deceiving in past discussions with Congress but now that the numbers are tanking and Obama is getting resistence, all of sudden, Bush lied people died reappears…..oh, you bet its coming. This is the ground work.
In a related development, President Obama threatened to veto the pending Intelligence Authorization Bill if it included a provision that would allow information about covert actions to be given to the entire House and Senate Intelligence Committees, rather than the so-called Gang of Eight — the Democratic and Republican leaders of both houses of Congress and the two Intelligence Committees.
The view from the oval office changes quite dramatically eh?
