Brad Woodhouse bashes GOP for filing FOIA; RNC, Twitter conservatives hit back

The RNC pounced on the Democratic Party communications director for knocking the FOIA request, suggesting to Woodhouse how he could help add some bipartisanship to the situation:

The RNC communications director said the Republicans didn’t have options like those employed by certain others in government:

Twitter conservatives joined in:

  • grais

    Overreach?? He’s obviously not watching the testimony.

    • Canadian in USA

      He wouldn’t care anyway.

    • Clete Torres

      He’s watching, but he has to read the closed caption (you can see his lips moving) because he doesn’t understand the spoken word. Thus, he misses a lot.

      Facts do not matter to libs.

    Overreach? Let’s discuss Obamacare.

  • Todd Hill

    “A FOIA request is partisan the same way journalism is espionage” <—- THIS!!!!

    • MelPax

      That was the best tweet ever.

    • Clayton Grant

      I agree!

  • ObamaFail

    Just more liberal foot stomping that the Obama administration isn’t getting away with breaking the law.

  • © Sponge

    Funny. The guy calling it partisan politics is doing exactly that. Injecting partisanship in an obviously partisan action by the IRS.

    HACKERY at its finest.

  • capisce

    Why bother with FOIA request when dealing with the most transparent administration in history? What part of “no there there” dont you understand?

      I’m confused is it “there there; they’re they’re; their their; they’re there; they’re their; their there; their they’re; there their; there they’re” can somebody please help?

        Watt weigh wood ewe want us two help? Its clearly yore number too choice thats write.

      XD

  • Steve

    If Woodhouse was so concerned about bipartisanship, why didn’t he get a few Democrats to sign the FOIA request?

  • DamnCat

    How dare anyone demand information from the most transparent administration ever!

    OH my dear Brad….you sound a little concerned they might just find something and when the people see the democrats didn’t join in you might have a little tough “communicating” to do later on.

  • ceemack

    Maybe this Brad Woodhouse character, whoever he is, doesn’t care much for the “Freedom” in “Freedom Of Information Act”.

  • $30423294

    Democrat let it slip that freedom (i.e., the F in FOIA) is for leftists only.

    Or that freedom is a tool of destruction, not a moral principle.

    Lots of implicit assumptions just slipped out of his pie hole. All of them bad.

    Tear down the wall.

  • kateorjane

    Unfortunately the GOP can’t count on getting the WH to facilitate getting info from the various agencies like the libs can. When you’re BFFs with BO you don’t have to worry about the legal routes to do things.

    It’s funny how FOIA’s were Teh Awesome when these same lowlifes filed them against every single email Sarah Palin sent or received for two and a half years, but it’s all very political and partisan when legislators exercise their oversight duty in the course of investigating crimes committed by the aspiring totalitarians in the Obunghole regime.

    Tool bad this fella doesn’t like his own tactics being used against him.
    A left wing cry baby, calling foul.
    Poor thing.
    And I love them being called out, and the folks finally paying attention.

    • Clete Torres

      To really frost 0bungles, let’s unseal all of his personal records, like he and axlerat did to every opponent in every campaign that he ran.

      • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

        Who would have the guts to do it?
        And it would be sweet if someone would actually be brave enough to do it.
        He needs a taste of his own medicine.

    But, but, but FOIA usage is for us Liberals to use against everyone else. And, and, and we want to be the first to use it as necessary. And, and, and now Conservatives want to use it. And, and, and well, damn it, that’s just not fair!!! winy, winy, winy little babies….

  • Sharkteeth

    Blinding Hypocrisy

  • Sonya A. Willis

    FREEDOM of INFORMATION is what has him bothered.

    • diskinetic

      Certainly. It’s not the tactic per se that he hates. It’s what’s going to be discovered that he dreads most.

      • 1SkepticalChick

        Or just the freedom part. But unresricted information might scare him.

  • TocksNedlog

    Well, you have to understand that as the DNC’s Communication’s Director (read: Minister of Propaganda) he’s had absolutely NO training in the dissemination of uncensored, un-spun, un-redacted information.

  • TocksNedlog

    There goes that damn GOP again — ‘exercising’ their rights in the light of day where everyone can see!
    Shameful.
    DECENT people know when to cover up, so as to prevent their shameful private parts from causing a public outcry.

  • $35038462

    He’s just targeting FOIA because the first letter stands for Freedom – uh oh, flag it!

  • Princess_Jen

    What a pansy ass water carrying uninformed dipwad. Tried to be nice on that.

  • camnpat

    Funny how a Democrat is bothered by the use of a Federal law introduced by Democrats in the 60’s and expanded by a Democratic president in the 90’s. It’s almost as if what they do and pass eventually comes to bite them in the rear.

  • rm1evo

    They new writers their material is getting old.

  • regmgr

    Just another stupid liberal trying to get the low information voter on Obama’s side. The democrats continue to hire unintelligent elitists who continue socialist propaganda hoping nobody with a brain will ask any questions.

  • JR48

    Well perhaps if the democratic administration wasn’t oppressing conservatives with the power of the federal government, there wouldn’t be a need to bother with an FOIA request. Or if Lorner decided to testify to tell us wth happened as opposed to taking the fifth…or if anyone anywhere actually told the truth.

    A FOIA is kinda like a bunker buster….. It blows out all kinds of information. Apparently the Dems think that this info will expose them as tyrants.

    I didn’t realize that opacity was a party plank in the last election but apparently it must have been a high priority one.

    A FOIA was only necessary because of this administrations’ lack of “transparency”. Who’s stunned by this?

    Ok…

    He’s an idiot..

    a hack so engrained in scandal denial, he’d rather destroy the government, then admit, his president is worse than Nixon ever even tried to be.. and Nixon was disgraced. Obama may well end up the biggest butt of every Washington is bad joke for a century.. Tammeny Hall in the 21st Century..

    Bet Woodhouse would’ve supported an FOIA request into Bush’s lunch menu or video rentals.
