The bloom it seems, is off the rose.

"it's a lot, especially when you begin with Benghazi, move on into the IRS, and now AP/FBI," said NBC anchor Brian Williams.
"this is a trifecta that really goes to the president's trust, that goes to the question of incompetence within the administration," said NBC's David Gregory.
"The Obama administration is doing a far better job making the case for conservatism than Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, or John Boehner ever did. Showing is always better than telling, and when the government overreaches in so many ways it gives support to the conservative argument about the inherently rapacious nature of government." John Dickerson, Slate Magazine
“You have to understand and hear how it sounds like the administration might be hiding something, can you just say plainly, does the president believe they’re being truthful? And does he think that the leadership there needs to change?” Jessica Yellin, CNN
"President Obama could have acted like Richard Nixon, but if he wasn’t directly involved, it’s still bad because that makes him Mr. Magoo." Jon Stewart
"Obama and Holder must stop this before this Oval Office is stained forever. In fretting about the Tea Party and leaks to the press, the Obama who promised us unprecedented transparency is rendering an unprecedented display of paranoia and abridgement of freedom." Derrick Jackson, Boston Globe.
 "My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing." Barrack Obama
