Wall Street Journal Calls For Special ProsecutorSeptember 17, 2009 at 6:48 am | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment
to investigate Obama and ACORN. Yes. Not to investigate spying on Americans. Not to investigate the illegal use of torture. Not to investigate whether our president lied to take us to war.
See, conservatives love that government spies on Americans. Conservatives love that their government tortures prisoners. Conservatives love that their government lies to them about war. But don’t you dare have any connections to an otherwise insignificant group that helps poor people, or they’ll demand an investigation into every single nook and cranny.
The whole point of this kind of stupidity is to wear down the Obama administration just as they did with the Clinton administration and Whitewater. Yes, the Wall Street Journal was at the lead in pushing all that crap. Whitewater of course went nowhere. But Whitewater held an operating investigator free to constantly investigate any and every other thing of the White House no matter if it didn’t have anything at all to do with Whitewater. The whole point was to constantly cast doubt on the ability of the White House to do its job, so that Republicans could present to the public that the Clinton White House was ineffectual at its job, and thus use that to win elections.
No one who is smart should really take the Wall Street Journal op-ed pages seriously. They’ve shown themselves time and time again that they don’t wish to be taken seriously.
