Eric Holder: watch what we say, not what we do
Machiavellian kudos to Eric Holder for continuing to grasp the gullibility of the traditional media as it regards the serial malfeasance of the Obama Administration.
From the Washington Post’s ‘no-specifics’ reporting of the off-the-record meeting between the embattled AG and the handful of media who showed up for Holder’s propaganda delivery device:
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. pledged Thursday to take concrete steps to address concerns that the Justice Department has overreached in its leak investigations and said officials would seek procedural and possibly legislative changes to protect journalists’ First Amendment rights.
Some (for example, those under investigation) might ask why Holder chose to overreach to begin with or why he won’t drop the current overreach.
Instead, Obama-like, Holder is telling the media to watch what he says and to ignore what he’s done. This would seem to make him the doppelganger of John Mitchell who famously said, ”Watch what we do, not what we say.”
So is the corollary that Richard Nixon’s doppelganger is Barack Obama?
