Who's minding the store?

BOB SCHIEFFER:  "This is not the Nixon administration, ... . This is more of a case, is anybody home?

I mean, just all of a sudden you have this thing with the Justice Department where they’re getting all these phone records of all the reporters. The Attorney General, well he didn’t know anything about it. You get to the IRS, they don’t seem to know anything about the Tea Party thing. You come to White House, they don’t know anything about Benghazi. Somebody’s got to grab hold of this thing.

It’s very, very disturbing what we’re seeing here. "


  1. Considerng the source that is a pretty strong statement.

  2. Bob’s statement seems to indicate that he perceives the situation as “no one is minding the store” as opposed to seeing an I don’t or didn’t know as CYA. I am not sure which of the two possibilities is worse.
