If anyone was a "client" in most of those examples, it was the American Government/People. So let us in on the privelege and hand over the goods.

P.S. That was aimed at Scott, of course.

20. Preconceived plan of attack on president'snominee
Whatever we did they'd say we didn't consult enough.

Whoever nominee was , would paint as extreme. Judge Robts comes from mainstream values. Open-minded,,, imparital.

The people in Senate and ppl paying attention rekinize he's a mainstream jurist.

He beieves in judicial restraint.

Third part of stragey: Whatever documents provided were not sufficient. Tjat is line of attack they are pursuing. Expedited release of documents. Dem sens making unreasonable requests. Not reasonable to get from Sol General's office.

25. Gawd, I hope they ask Chummy McSharkbait about the Treasongate
scandal regardless of his lame 'ongoing investigation' standard answer. If only they would realize it keeps it on the record, makes him look more and more like he's lieing, which he is, and keeps the story on simmer. But of course, this is the poodle press I'm talking about, except for a few choice brave ones among them.

26. Iranian pres involved in Iran hostage crisis?
SM: we know he was a leader in student mvmt involved in taking of American hostages. Continue to look into.

What info looking into?

SM: all we know at this point.

If he was a leader, what does it matter if he was actually involved?

SM: again there were people who were hostage takers and we're looking into that.

Any photos?

SM: it's all we know at this point.

30. asking about 12-hour gap
When we've asked you about stmts made in 2003 about what Alberto Gonzales might have done. He restates what happened but you do not.

SM: We addressed this not going into that.

Q: Strategy re nuke missiles aimed at Iran. Given our prblms with iran to go ahead with nuke program. Concerned with if attak on US, would this create knee-jerk attack?

SM: not discussing nat'l security. Iran made committments to suspend activities. Expect them to abide. If they begin agahn they will violate paris agreement. Made it clear Iran has a hisotry of hiding nuke activies from int'l community. Need to show not develping weapns onder civilian prgam. Wld discuss with Europeans going to UNSC.

31. energy bill. Will it decrease gas prices?
SM: repeat. Pres talked about this. Reduce our dependency, address root causes. Impordend to have policy.

Can you give a simple answer?

SM: No, have to go to root causes. Dependent on foreign sources of energy.

Asked you many times what pres is doing about gas prices?

SM: Not getting out overnight. Have to move forward. Very impordened.

32. Bullshit I say to you. This Energy bill addresses NOTHING.
IT will do nothing to make us less dependent on foreign energy sources.
What a crock. 'We're not going to get out of this overnight, blah, blah, blah.' This bill will not help us get out of it AT ALL.

36. does pres agree with roberts 2003 stmt that roe v wade is settled
or does he hope he will vote against it?

SM: pres does not have litmust test. Bleieves it's impordend to interpret our laws, not legislate from bench. Ideology should not get in way of impartial decision on law and facts.

We're two weeks away from 60 anniv of surrender of Japan. Does pres believe it would be wise and just on aug 15 for PM...or should just try and forget bataan death march.

SM: pres appreciates PM's friendship. Cannot comment.

Q: Tancredo suggests taking out mecca. Will WH ask him to apologize and take back like thye did to Durbin?

SM: pres clear Islam teaches peace. Stated his views.

SM: Judges needs to be installed by Sept. American pple deserve senate to mv forward. Very impordened. Pres believes he should be in place. Nominated someone in timely manner. Getting senate all info they need, Hope they don't resort to these atttacks and delay and drag things out.

SDO'C has offered to serve if not confirmed.

SM: plenty of time. Senate was able to move foward. AVerage 40 some days on Ginsburg and Breyer.

43. Yes, Scott they did move forward. But this won't move forward unless
the nominee is proved to be suitable, which he probably isn't. Too much is riding on it, and over 60% of the US population wants us to determine Roberts position on choice before confirming him. He's already lied about being in the Federalist society, and important papers that would speak to his outlook are being withheld. Why the secrecy Puffy?

Can US say we did a better job infiltrating groups on American Soil?

SM: Not going to agree with way you characterized it. We continue to move forward. An ongoing investigation. We are taking all steps to make sure ameican ppl are protected. Can't do everything tho. Long term struggle of ideologies. Have to go after them over there and bring them to justice. Impordend to take the fight to enemy. Work to advance freedom and democracy.
