A lot of people had high hopes for Jake Tapper after CNN lured him away from ABC News with the offer of his own show. Get used to seeing a lot more of Stephanie Cutter, though, whom CNN has hired as its newest political commentator. Cutter previously was Barack Obama’s deputy campaign manager, so she has a lot of inside information about the president. She apparently knows a lot about former IRS commissioner Doug Shulman as well; enough, at least, to know his 150+ visits to the White House were anything but nefarious.

No, we can’t say that makes us feel any better. Our memories of Cutter on CNN include her being called out by hosts Erin Burnett and Piers Morgan on her fib about Mitt Romney’s tax cut plan. She also didn’t know anything about Joe “Romney gave my wife cancer” Soptic, despite having spoken with him on an OFA conference call. Tapper himself gave her some heat for that one, but now that they’re co-workers and the campaign is in the rear view mirror, it’s nothing but the truth from here on out, right? And if she has answers about the IRS scandal, we’ve got plenty of questions.



So now we have Stephanie Cutter vouching for the IRS, and Attorney General Eric Holder investigating himself over the AP/Fox News scandal. What could go wrong?

    So there was nothing nefarious about Obama’s deputy campaign manager sitting in on meetings with Doug Shulman? WFT? Why was the head of the IRS in the same meeting with Obama’s deputy campaign mgr? Something reeks here!

      Perhaps Shulmann visited the White House so that he could bowl for free.

    Whatever it is that they’re covering up that it requires a pro-liar like Stef Cutter must be really, really bad. Worse even than we thought.

    Hey libbies, prove me wrong.

    This woman is an Obama Zombie.Bret Baier destroyed her.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      You have more fortitude than I do. I couldn’t listen to obaMao or his wicked witch and had to watch with the sound off. They both look like spectrum-opposite examples of Borderline Personality Disorder.
      Even Brett got worn out talking to this Cutter Goon.

    Curiouser and curiouser….

    I’m starting to think that Dear Leader’s defenders are not so much defending Dear Leader as they are exercising self-preservation. Dear Leader will throw any of them under the bus who dare tell the truth.

    Of course, this doesn’t excuse them for being blatant liars, but in this context, it makes a lot more sense.

  • Joe W.

    Why is a member of Obama For America campaign team in a meeting at the White House with the Director of the IRS?? Inquiring minds want to know. So does THIS American.

    • HARP2

      Worse than that.
      At the time she was part of the campaign team.

      • Dragomance

        “At the time”?She’s still gonna be working for the campaign team.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      Could Cutter & Jarrett be the powers behind the curtain? (not throne!)

      • Axelgreaser

        The ‘power’ behind the curtain is an old 8 x 10 glossy photo in a battered silver plate frame, signed, “With admiration, whomever you turned out to be, K. Marx.”

    • Axelgreaser

      You’re damn quack!* :)

  • detroit19

    I feel so much better now that, Stephanie Cutter, aka, the lying liar who lies on behalf of the Lying, Liar in Chief, has cleared this all up. Absolutely breathtaking what contempt this entire administration, up to and including the potus, feel for We, the People.

  • TocksNedlog

    Trust her! She’s sort of from the government, and she’s here to help — perpetuate the campaign.

  • Republicanvet

    Maybe Barky should bring Stephy back to the WH to tell him what else is happening or happened in his administration.

  • gracepmc

    CNN just bought more insurance from targeting or investigation by the Obama Administration

      LOL! One of Obama’s ‘premier liar’s’, Stephanie Cutter’s ‘vouch’ or ‘endorsement’ of anything or anybody, including pancake batter would make me run in the opposite direction so fast my shoes would catch fire! She is the female counterpart to the King of Whopper’s, dumpster diver David Axelrod whose modus operandi is: “Well, you know, some people say Mitt Romney has a ‘666’ etched in his scalp just under his hairline. I’m not saying it’s true, but it’s out there.” How many more lies can Cutter pile onto the lies that have come out of the White House in just the past 30 days and not make it less than the comedy of errors and deceit it has become? So many fibs, Jay ‘Corny’ looks shell-shocked standing in front of the press. Which is more than can be said of the rest of the hoodlums and scoundrels who have prevaricated and perjured themselves in front of investigative committee’s this past week or two. Side-stepped, giggled, *sighed* outright told bald-faced lies only a person separated from their own head would swallow, and worse, ‘smirked’ straight into the same camera they’d just lied into. And ot just to their inquisitors, but to the American people who pay their salaries whether they are working their mischief or on some asinine, bogus ‘severance’ with full pay until they can be parked in some other zone of our government like so many molester Priests being hidden away. Smirking, as if to say: “Catch me if you can.”

  • HARP2

    Issa….you now have your link to the campaign.

    Lord she`s stupid.

    • vetgal1970

      Indeed they do. I guess she lies so easily because her head is so empty. She just tied the leaked donor lists and the harassment of Romney donors who were called out by Obama’s campaign right to the White House with a neat little bow. Think I might forward that to my Representative, in case he missed it.

    • afvet4america

      Liars always are.

  • DizzyMissL

    I would believe in my country again if I would see cutter, axlerod and liarwoman-shultz doing the perp walk

    • jebjr

      i would add Valerie Jarrett to that list.

      • DizzyMissL

        Agree. That makes the list perfect.

    • jebjr

      i would add Valerie Jarrett to that list.

  • Roto

    So, Stephanie “I lie just as much as Debbie Wasserman Schultz” Cutter vouches for Doug Shulman??? I got one word for ya Dougie — toast. Does the name Jeb Magruder, and Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice ring any bells?

  • JerseyFresh12

    This is the break Issa was looking for. Shows you how smug these Obama minions are when they go on national TV and blatantly open themselves up to a subpoena thinking that the media will shield them. Not this time. The dominoes are starting to fall…

    • afvet4america

      Well I sure hope you are right. She should be subpeonaed to see if she knows anything about connecting these scandals to 0 bamas reelection.

  • afvet4america

    This woman disgraces women. She’s nothing but a know Liar, and sold her soul to re elect a hateful failure of a Pres.

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    The democrats have no morals and no honor. The fact that they are continually exposed as liars reveals the liberal consciousness, or lack thereof. And whenever I hear democrat and think tank in the same sentence, it makes me actually, laugh out loud.

    • Michael Hernandez

      Of course the idiots that fall for dimocrat lies deserve some of the credit

  • dtom_ator

    She all but admitted collusion with the IRS !! What a smug little dummy!!

  • Southern Yankee

    Issa, subpoena Cutter and FOIA all OFA communications from her at that time.

  • Noreen Gardner

    Stephanie cutter come clean
