Leftists Weep: Obama Sides with Bush Administration Over Plame Case!

Heh. Joe and Valerie Plame sued Bush Administration officials in 2006 alleging constitutional violations by Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and Richard Armitage, but the courts have not been very receptive to their imaginative claims. The Plames vowed to take it to the Supreme Court, however:

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court not to hear an appeal of a lawsuit brought by Mrs. Plame and her husband, former U.S. Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, against several top Bush administration officials. The department's move continued the Bush administration's policy to fight the suit, which has already been dismissed by two lower courts.

"The decision of the court of appeals is correct and does not conflict with any decision of this Court or any other court of appeals," said the brief filed by Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, and Justice Department attorneys Mark B. Stern and Charles W. Scarborough. "Further review is unwarranted."

The Justice Department filing agreed with the lower courts that none of the Wilsons' several legal arguments gave an appropriate basis for such a lawsuit.

The butt-hurt Leftists sob: "The government's position cannot be reconciled with President Obama's oft-stated commitment to once again make government officials accountable for their actions."

It still hasn't quite sunk in for these folks, so I'll spell it out for them: Obama. Is. A. Liar. And it's damn hilarious when its the Left getting lied to.
