I was watching CSPAN this morning (it's not something I normally do) to hear a bit about what Eric Holder knew about "Fast and Furious". You know, the program where the US government provided guns to Mexican criminals, and those same criminals (gasp!) used them to kill people. From what I gathered, it was Bush's fault - no surprise there.
I did learn something, though - listening to Chuck Shumer for any amount of time is a stomach-turning experience.
But enough about CSPAN. My post is really about this: In case you haven't heard, a G20 meeting is going on over there in the Old Country. Usually, it's big news because the anarchist thugs come out of the woodwork and cause havoc, but it's smaller news now because the anarchist thugs are on location at various "Occupy" events across the nation. I'm a little disappointed there is no "Occupy St. Johns", but maybe there weren't enough Starbucks, or the anarchist thugs couldn't get good reception on the iPhones.
Geez, I rambled again. Without further ado, my point:
Microphones accidently left on after G20 meeting pick up private conversation between US, French presidents. Sarkozy admits he 'can't stand' Israeli premier. Obama: You're fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day!
So some casual conversation between two allies, one the head of an aging, failing socialist state and the other the head of young, failing socialist state. Nothing to see here, nothing to report here. But further on we have this tidbit:
The surprising lack of coverage may be explained by a report alleging that journalists present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the embarrassing comments. A Reuters reporter was among the journalists present and can confirm the veracity of the comments.
Well, of course it does. In fact, Obama has that kind of agreement with journalists on a daily basis. Do you remember when Ashton Kutcher made that awful pledge to obey Obama's hard-left causes because he was the rightful ruler of the universe, the true messiah, and a swell fella to boot? I'm pretty sure journalists have to take the same oath, the final step being kissing the… ring of Obama in the White House. Which is a lot better than what they normally kiss while reporting Obama's truly awful presidency.
I wonder if the media signed a similar agreement not to report these types of "faux pas" with President Bush? Now where is that Magic 8 Ball… "Signs point to no". I would tend to agree.
