RUSH: This is from the Weekly Standard, Daniel Halper. You know, I read stuff like this, and ask, “Do they really think that we are this stupid?” The answer is yes. “President Barack Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, is ‘beginning to feel a creeping sense of personal remorse.’ The feelings of ‘remorse’ began for Holder after he read an article in the Washington Post about how the Justice Department, which he heads, investigated Fox News reporter James Rosen.
“At least, this is the story unnamed aides are telling the Daily Beast,” which is an Obama sycophant publication. Get this: “‘[F]or Attorney General Eric Holder, the gravity of the situation didnÂ’t fully sink in until Monday morning when he read the PostÂ’s front-page story, sitting at his kitchen table. Quoting from the affidavit, the story detailed how agents had tracked RosenÂ’s movements in and out of the State Department, perused his private emails, and traced the timing of his calls to the State Department security adviser suspected of leaking to him.
“Then the story, quoting the stark, clinical language of the affidavit, described Rosen as ‘at the very least … an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator’ in the crime,’ reports the Daily Beast. ‘Holder knew that Justice would be besieged by the twin leak probes; but, according to aides, he was also beginning to feel a creeping sense of personal remorse.'” So this has been going on since 2010. The Justice Department has been looking at James Rosen and basically tagged him as a coconspirator in a crime.
But it wasn’t until yesterday morning when Holder woke up on Memorial Day, and read his copy of the Washington Post, that he saw what was really going on for the first time and began to feel sorry. So then Holder probably put the paper down and shouted to his wife, “Hey, Honey! You won’t believe this. Come look at this,” and showed her the story about what’s been going on in his Justice Department. He said, “Honey, you know, I’m really having a creeping sense of remorse over this.”
How stupid do they think that we are?
Got to be pretty stupid.
