Obama’s Passport Breach, No Big Deal

Two contract employees at the State Department used their network privileges to look at Barack Obama’s passport application and possibly other items that are personal in nature. The two employees were fired and there is an investigation into the motive and what was compromised. The Obama campaign, as any good group of Democrats will do, blamed George Bush for this breach:

Obama spokesman Bill Burton issued a stern statement Thursday night, saying: “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. Fox News

I say this is no big deal and I say that because the Democrats have already set the precedent for this not being a big deal. Privacy is not an issue with them and they showed that when Michael Steele, a Republican from Maryland, ran for the US Senate. Two employees of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee illegally obtained Steele’s credit report solely for opposition research. The two employees worked for Senator Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from New York. The FBI investigated the incident and the DSCC denied any involvement but no one has gone to jail. Was there even a report on this that brought it to closure? I believe Schumer’s fingerprints were all over this and that is why those two employees are not breaking rocks in prison. They can implicate people.

As far as Obama’s passport goes, it is a pretty big stretch to say that this was done for political purposes especially since it has yet to be fully investigated. In addition, it is pretty hypocritical for the Obama camp to act as if Democrats would not do such a thing. The assertion that the administration had little regard for privacy holds little water when one considers what the Democrats did to Micheal Steele. That incident was definitely politically motivated. This incident might have been Obama supporters trying to find out his home phone number. We won’t know until it is completely investigated, an investigation that will be more thorough than the one the Democrats conducted.

I believe that this claim by the Obama campaign is a diversionary tactic drummed up (the incident is not drummed up, the response is) to try and divert attention away from Obama’s racist remarks and the racist remarks of his Pastor. This issue has been beating Obama up and he has been losing support because of it. His campaign used the incident to paint the typical Democratic picture of George Bush as someone listening in to Aunt Mildred and her cookie recipes with no regard for privacy. They want us to know it can happen to Obama too and he will fight for the little guy against evil people like George Bush. Where was Obama when Steele’s credit report was illegally used for political purposes?

Obama is an empty suit. He harbors anti white feelings and he is a closet racist who follows the teachings of an overt racist. Obama’s dirty little secret got out too soon and it is hurting him. Nothing like creating a Bush scandal to divert the focus.

I say, no big deal. There is not a lot of information on a passport application. This is not a security clearance paperwork, it is for a passport. If those workers looked at it and had no legitimate reason then they were wrong. They have been fired so now let us move on and talk about important stuff like how many racists support Obama.

As an aside, maybe they looked at the places he has visited. I wonder if he went somewhere he does not want disclosed…

    You brought an interesting and yet overlooked observation. These Dems have been violating privacy for years and it is not going to get any better. what we have here is probably two very curious contractors or perhaps a Clinton, Inc opposition research. I doubt that McCain would do it and most republicans are not smart enough to figure out a scheme like this. :)

    really, isn’t it interesting that it happened days

    after victories for Obama on the Second and third time.

    and the first time it was either the 8 or the 9th

    if it was the 8th he was expected to blow away Clinton in New Hampshire

    the second time was after 10 wins in a row and the
    last after Mississippi.

    the social security no is the big one here

    you can look at his credit records find out where he has been spending money etc

    I think they have to make sure they are not connected to a over zealous 527 group.

    McCain is they type who would shoot the guy who did it and then challenge Obama to a duel.

    I heard a star blew up on the other side of the Milky Way, it appears it was shining on Barack so George Bush had it destroyed… sounds just as plausible right???
