No apology or accountability sought during the recent gushing interview with Rep. Frank and apparently national security is a something to joke about in the discussion when it is not regarding "Scooter" Libby.

No mention that Obama did his usual sordid scam of making an official "Whirlwind" visit to the World Trade Center on the same day he’s going to several fundraisers in Manhattan with the "one percent" in order to stick the tax payer with the bill for his million dollar parties.
He has done this charade a number of times and the US media is silent about it while fretting about the Citizen's United decision, Republican donations and corrupt bankers. Any "journalists" care to report how much did it cost the city to shut down a block in the West Village where the lucrative fundraising party took place?
