Which is an oxymoron if you think about it.

Obama finds suggestions that they are planned and to bolster his image offensive?
To bad. Its very much plausible. Acceptable losses to gain personal advantage is not an unreasonable expectation from this administration.
Of course its possible that guy just doesn't understand the damage being done by this series of leaks and is getting poor advice by his inner circle.
Or perhaps his people have gone rouge.

Its the Clintonestas!!!!

Great shades of the Nixon administration.

An independent investigation that does not answer to the DOJ is in order.

Any president can be set up to look bad in this fashion, so long as some insiders privy to the intel are willing to be in on it.

That it makes him supposedly look good could be just the hook to make people think it is his doing.

The old Mission:Impossible shows provide a clue as to how this can work.

Any president has many enemies, and if you get a powerful enough, connected enough faction, you can end up with an unauthorized break-in you didn't know about to explain and cover up (Watergate), or get set up in a honey pot affair and have to deal with that aftermath (Monica).

Stakes are high for many power players in the coming election, and it would be entirely naive to take anything at face value without thinking deeper.

Could be. Might explain Mr. Bill's 'accidental' gaffes last week.

Some have suggested Michelle Bachmann's placement on the Intel committee could be involved.

Boehner had a sit-down with her at that time, and warned her about leaking classified information then, for a very good reason.

I do love the tenacity of the Clinton's.

They are good at what they do.

They are survivors.

Unfortunately, that meant sucking up to the Bush Family Evil Empire faction, which is not surprising, given that among Clinton's early term actions was to close the book on prosecuting the IraqGate and other Bush 41 crimes in office. Professional spook courtesy, no doubt.

There is no doubt that The Moron himself is the instigator of the leaks program to make himself look good but also to weaken America, his prime goal. The evidence is everywhere of his contempt for the country and his narcissism provide the motivating force for everything he does.

I remember when our illustrious leftist brethren and sistren had their collectivist panties in a wad for years over someone not outing someone who wasn't a covert agent ... now that people actually in the field are actually placed at risk we get the typical "DEFLECT! ... DEFEND! ... DENY!" act.

Not that this surprises me.

The Clintons are a couple grifters who should both be in jail.

Another case of the right, spinning the meaning of the full statement, taking it out of context, and all to distract from the REAL gaffs of the past days, from Walker, on Face The Nation, to Mitsey, saying Americans want to fire teachers, policemen and firemen.....they most certainly do not, they want MORE of all of them.


IMO, Romney's actual gaff on the same day, saying that Americans want fewer teachers, firemen and policemen, is, IMO, by far a much more damaging and ACTUAL gaff, than the imaginary, repiglican created myth of our President making a gaff.

Clearly, when one listen's to the entire statement, he didn't mean what they decided to spin his statement into, deceitfully, I might add.

Repiglicans keep on adding more groups to the roles of people who won't vote for them.

Hmmmm, now they have added teachers, policemen and firemen, thanks to Mitsey, and his magic panties, Walker, Rick Scott, and the rest.

I only hope Repigs, and Mitsey, continue to demonize hard working, Middle Class Americans.

A series of intelligence leaks no matter what the source poses dangers to people both at home and abroad.
Gaffs generally do not effect national security.
