Ponder the implications of Myers' statement, in which she blithely described the press as an important Obama "constituency" along with his supporters on the left.
LISA MYERS: Then comes the IRS which offended the right, the middle, and even some Democrats and members of the press. But when they did this [the AP spying], they turned one of the President's most important constituencies, the press and the left against him. So politically, it's hard to imagine--and this is a very calculating White House--it's hard to imagine that they would have green-lighted this kind of thing. I think it's more likely that this was something that was handled within the Justice Department and that if the White House was notified, it was after the fact and not before the action was taken.
