Obama hates the press

The president who's administration has pursued more leaks than every other president combined has stepped over the line once more. Naming a reporter a co-conspirator for receiving classified info has never been done.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/a-rare-peek-into-a-justice-department-leak-probe/2013/05/19/0bc473de-be5e-11e2-97d4-a479289a31f9_print.html

"The Justice Department used security badge access records to track the reporter’s comings and goings from the State Department, according to a newly obtained court affidavit. They traced the timing of his calls with a State Department security adviser suspected of sharing the classified report. They obtained a search warrant for the reporter’s personal emails"

What was this deep dark secret that was such a huge threat to "national security" that the justice department actually was reading a reporters emails? The North Koreans might have more nuclear tests if the UN sanctions them. Big DUH moment. My 4 year old could have figured that out. This is classified? So why spend millions investigating this? Because Obama wants to intimidate the press plain and simple. I haven't seen this level of paranoid press hatred in a president since Nixon.

Hard to imagine but Obama is several orders of magnitude worse than Bush at killing civil liberties in America. At least Bush could plead ignorance, Obama actually taught constitutional law. There is no excuse for this abuse of power.

there is a good side to all this.. at least the Comedians and Cartoonist are getting jobs again being employed and earning a living..

after all they actually do have a reason to poke fun and be sarcastic at the government.
