The lure of the spotlight leads Obama accusers to hypocrisy.
So you heard about the Osama Bin Laden thing, right? That he's dead? And that it didn't happen under Bush, right? Mr. "Dead or Alive"? Well, the GOP and Bush-supporters hated having their private carpet taken from under them, and seethed.
Their reaction has boiled down to undermining the success by saying we know too much about it, thanks to self-aggrandizing leaks from the Obama administration.
And Tuesday a campaign came out to discredit those leaks, led by people formerly with the CIA and Special Ops. Funding for the group comes from WKW ("Who Knows Who"), as in another shadowy group with an unknown agenda.
Yeah, well, as Ken Dilanian at the Losa Angeles Times points out, the members of this group don't have the tightest lips when it comes to national defense themselves, and their choice of where to shine their spotlight could be considered, uh, arbitrary. Such as discussing Valerie Plame's training and cover on Hannity.
Too bad there's not more sunlight and vinegar to go around; I'd like to see more cleanliness. Especially from accusers.
