      Panetta is taking heat from Rockefellar as well.  These are Democrats.  Ya think the Republicans won't be stepping up against Panetta?

      I think Obama's gonna yank him and probably claim that the reports of his selection are not true.

        OMG, Rockafellar and the Republicans are against him too.  Doomed, we are.  This is sounding better and better.  And if Panetta is wrong, then I'll say I've been fooled real bad on this one.

        When in a hole, stop digging.

        After the fiasco on wiretaps by DiFi and Rockefeller?  They are against him because they are dirty on this one.

        Against: Rockefeller and DiFi who BOTH capitulated on FISA violations.  Any speculation as to why they caved?  

        For an answer, let's see who their largest contributors are.

        Rockefeller: #5 - AT&T #9 - BellSouth.

        Here's some speculation.  Old Jay doesn't want Norm because he won't bury the bad shit that the CIA did with respect to warrantless wiretaps and his corporate buddies won't like that.

        And Gee - here's the Roll Call vote on FISA.

        Of course, they're in with good company.  All the Republicans, including Joe Lieberman, and a good array of DINOs.

        Look, face it.  The CIA and other intelligence organizations broke the FISA law, and the good squad including DiFi and JRo want it buried.  They know that Minetta won't bury it.  So, they come out against him.
