    The obfuscation here would appear to be yours, and that of everyone pretending, in bad faith, that this story has something to do with whistle blowing.

    If this is what a "war on whistle blowers" means, blow the damn bugles. If it's not, stop pretending it is.

      That's plainly obvious and far more important than your opportunistic spin storming on the emerging details of the AP affront.

      But if you think that whistle blowers will be encouraged to speak out by the actions of this President, including his covert fishing trip into AP sources, please lay that argument out.

        political opponents to leak whatever they damned well want since it appears that far too many consider leaking any and all information held by the government as whistleblowing and protected.

        I didn't tell anyone to jump on this AP story like a trampoline and make it your poster child because, hey, it's making news so here's an opportunity.

        If you're having buyer's remorse about flogging this story, don't point the finger at me.

        •  You've repeatedly posted your "not like the other" (0+ / 0-)

          defense of the AP source hunt. But, as we see, you won't argue that whistle blowing is being encouraged.

          You tend to go into campaign mode when you have a novel excuse for widely recognized Obama conservatism. Like your "he's too brilliant a liar to actually want to make the SS cuts he keeps proposing" cheer that we heard so much of on various sites. It was fun seeing you clash fantasies with BooMan and his "when they agree to tax hikes they will lose all power forever, so cutting SS is OK".
