OR MOTIVE TO COMMIT A CRIME" states the attorney for Robert Flanagan - on the attempt to bug a U.S. Senator's office. I say.........DUH!?!?!?!
I should hope that this mouthpiece is getting paid the "big bucks" to sound like a complete moron here. Let us review the issue at hand...these four young punks, James O'Keefe, Robert Flanagan, Joseph Basel and Stan Dai (all 24 years of age) - were caught RED-HANDED, wearing makeshift telephone worker uniforms, going so far as to include the hard hat and fluorescent vests...trying to do "something" to Sen. Mary Landrieu's phones in the FEDERAL building in her home state. Hello young morons....can you say FEDERAL OFFENSE????
This young man (or idiot) has been floating around on the notoriety he gained when he acted as a PIMP, and catching ACORN employees in illegal acts last year. Considering he was an immediate FAUX news idol and made the circuit of all their brain dead shows - apparently this stardom "went to his head." Or could O'Keefe honestly believe that the Faux resources will save his ass, no matter the illegal act undertaken???
It is still questionable as to whether O'Keefe is an employee of Andrew Breitbart (biggovernment(dot)com) or an independent contractor of sorts. Breitbart still runs his conservative websites from his basement, but has certainly made a name for himself - by his relations with all the Faux people, Dennis Miller, Matt Drudge, etc... Now Breitbart is saying that he is paying O'Keefe for his "life issues" or some such drivel.
The attorney's statement is what I found so ridiculous. Must be from Attorney Speak for Client Class 101..."remember to turn the tables and sound stupid." MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! I also find fault in the staff of this Federal building, that credentials were not requested immediately from these cretins.
Everyone has heard by now (I'm sure) that Robert Flanagan is the son of the acting U.S. Attorney for Louisiana, Bill Flanagan. Flanagan was the first assistant under Dubya's appointee Donald Washington. (**Obama has already appointed a nominee for this position.)
I was going to post the youtube video of the "pimp" at ACORN, but the site is not loading for me at the moment. Seeing O'Keefe, as he leaves court I believe, state "the truth shall set me free" - makes me wonder......would that be the fair and balanced truth of his favorite news idols????? Right...........
..........and the "spin stops here!"
I am looking forward to the SOTU speech tonight...and would like to think that this could be a turning point for Obama, and he gets a backbone and stands up to the rethugs. I, like many have been disappointed in his spinelessness (is that a word?) these past many months. Don't get me wrong...I do realize that this country, economically was in a free fall when he was inaugurated. The loss of jobs was inevitable whether some will admit that or not. Can anyone imagine where we would be, if BUSH was still in office? Or how he would handle the catastrophe at hand? That gives way to some scary scenarios.
I will be quite interested in how this case fares in the courts. I believe convictions are in order and a little jail time for these morons - how about you?
Well, have to get ready for my cardiac rehab. Have a great day and I shall return....later......................
