The White House Scandal Trifecta: IRS, AP and Benghazi

The White House hits the trifecta for scandal this week. Will the administration be distracted and ineffective from here on out? The head of the IRS apologizes and claims there was no political motivation behind its treatment of conservative groups. Is it a benign symbol of an unwieldy, too-big government, or a terrifying reminder of the Nixon years? The Justice Department seizes Associated Press phone records. Should we be worried about our free press and First Amendment rights, or is the media just reacting when it hits close to home. The White House releases emails about Benghazi and hopes to quiet the outrage. Is hope for a productive second term over for the Obama administration? A New York Times article by Peter Baker suggests it may be. Rich Lowry (National Review) joins Bob and Matt on the Right this week.
