Surrender Monkey Friday: Obama Passport Kerfuffle Bush’s Fault

surrender monkey 

By now, many of y’all know about the little passport kerfuffle, right?

Two contract employees of the State Department were fired and a third person was disciplined for inappropriately looking at Democratic Sen. Barack Obama’s passport file.

State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the department itself detected the instances of “imprudent curiosity,” which occurred separately on Jan. 9, Feb. 21 and March 14. He would not release the names of those who were fired and disciplined. The three were working in separate offices within the passport system, according to State Department officials.

I could probably wonder about the fact that the federal government is chock full of people who lean Democrats, but, we just do not know. Were they Hillary supporters looking for dirt? Were they Obama supporters admiring their Messiah’s passport? Or GOP? Or, were they just curious? We do not know. But, liberal freakout

 “This is an outrageous breach of security and privacy, even from an administration that has shown little regard for either over the last eight years. Our government’s duty is to protect the private information of the American people, not use it for political purposes,” Burton said.

Was it used? I’m missing that part in the story. Furthermore, the government’s primary duty is to protect the people of the USA from all enemies, both domestic and foreign, and the Dems did not seem to have problems with the constant leaking of national security matters, or a former Clinton staffer, who ended up being a Kerry staffer in 2004, and is a Hillary staffer now, stealing and destroying national security papers. And let’s not forget….well, I am sure you can come up with some on your own.

But, how about the reality based community? Start with the comments at Crooks and Liars

  • bastards! I’d be willing to bet this will be the tip of an iceberg that will sink the whole rotten BushCo ship.
  • America really needs to pay attention to this one.
  • The fact that they were fired,right away, instead of one of their phoney investigations, means this is BIG!
  • The Bush Administration knew long ago and did not notify Obama.
  • Now it is time for impeachment.
  • Could this be the smoking gun to bring down this adminstation? I friggin hope so!
  • condi must resign.
  • Holy crap. Americans shouldn’t be afraid of terrorists. They should be afraid of what is loose in Washington. I knew the last couple days was way too quiet.

I like that last one. The commenter is correct, but, considering that it is liberals who want Washington to be in charge of every aspect of our lives……

Steven Brant at the Hufftard Post is demanding an independent, absolutely impartial investigation. Good luck with that, bub!

Jeff Fecke at Shakesville throws a quote out: As Yakov Smirnoff might say: “In Soviet Russia, government reads secret passport files on political opponents. But in America, same thing! What a country!”

Too bad that Smirnoff was saying that about what the Bill Clinton admin was doing.

Many commenter’s at MyDDare very angry, and are demanding an investigation! Stay tuned for the IMPORTANT ACTION ALERTS, because, you know, this is huge! Like the Rosenburgs huge. Oh, wait, liberals still think they were innocent.

And you know theDUmmies are having their standard hissy fits. Will it soon be time for petitions and DUing polls?

Update: Good news, it wasn’t just the Obamessiah’s passport files, but Hillary’s and John McCain’s, too. President Bush was a really busy bee, eh? 😉

More: Captain Ed

Instead of waiting for a little more information, however, the Obama campaign went into full paranoia mode. Where have we seen that recently?

Well, in what I linked to earlier 🙂

Goody, Henry Waxman is getting involved, per Michelle Malkin. More partisan Dem bloviation.

Evening Update: Crooks and Liars moves the tinfoil from the comments (and boy howdy is there some serious moonbattery going on in the comments! I’ll have to check it along with the DU more often) to the actual posts: If one is inclined to believe a more sinister explanation, today’s news doesn’t help. That State Department staffers sought out confidential information about the major presidential candidates starts to look more like opposition research, and less like innocent prying. Given the Bush administration’s history of politicizing non-partisan government agencies, including the State Department, there’s no reason to extend the benefit of the doubt.

    Hussein’s crowd demanded everything ever produced on Shrillary, including a pair of her jockey shorts to inspect for stretching (by her large gonaids) and fart stains/smell and demand WWIII because someone looked at Hussein’s passport files. Makes me wonder what he has been involved in and who with. Has he visited his friend Osama in the cave too many times to alibi away? GWB flew over Kansas while a bank robbery was taking place in K.C. so he was involved in the bank robbery. Democrats have reached the bottom of the pit (10 feet deeper than their ladder is tall) of stupidity but they are still digging.
    Who says brain washing doesn’t work. Democrats watch CNN/NBC/ABC and CBS and all have been struck stupid.
