...Butt getting back to the violence in Rahms Chicagoland: can you believe it? 7 dead, 35 wounded - just last weekend! I know it has nothing to do with the fact that the Illinois, unlike almost every other state, makes it nearly impossible to own a gun unless youre a criminal. Is it any wonder that our Attorney General wants to demonstrate that all those guns coming in from Mexico (or is that the other way around? I get confused) via the Fast and Furious program are reason enough to eliminate that pesky Second Amendment right to bear arms.
And Ricky feels so strongly about disarming law-abiding citizens that hes even willing to con the American people to state on the record that hes done nothing to deceive, mislead or stonewall Congress. As is always the case in these situations, it depends on what your meaning of deceive mislead and stonewall is. Apparently Big Guy and Ricky dont see it the same way as Congress so I guess were going to have that unseemly contempt vote later today. Unless the R-words accept Big Guys latest scam dodge bluff move granting Ricky Executive Privilege.
Hes with me, so he gets a pass, got it? Cuz I WON.

This has gone far enough, damnit!!! EVERY REPUBLICAN - IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE NEEDS TO GATHER ON THE CAPITOL STEPS AND DEMAND MEDIA COVERAGE OF THIS OUTRAGE!!!
And pssst: Boehner, you need to get onboard and lead this fight or YOU will be a one term leader - and THAT IS A PROMISE!!!
WE ARE SICK OF OBAMA, HOLDER AND THE ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION RUNNING ROUGH-SHOD OVER OUR CONSTITUTION, SO LISTEN UP, GOP - STOP LETTING THEM!!!!!!!!!!
Obama Tries to Protect Holder With Executive Privilege
no , Obama is protecting Obama with Executive privilege
Exexcutive Privilige will no more protect Eric Holder than it protected Richard Nixon.
The congress has the right to that information as part of its oversight requirements.
If they can’t oversee what the Justice Departments been up too.Why have a Congress?
I’ll bet if a Republican President was in the Oval Office and Barack the Kenyan “had a son that looked just like” Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ALL HELL WOULD BE BREAKING LOOSE RIGHT NOW!!!
Do we have a Congress? Do we have a House? What in the hell do we have. NOTHING! DAMN WE HAVE NOTHING! We are run by criminals in the entire Federal Government. Civil War will happen if King Obama and Holder are not impeached.
POLITICAL ANARCHY !!!!!
That is the question du jour in the oval office.
How does the Dems and MSM spin this ? You know one thing Obama will never have another new conference and never ever answer questions
It’s funny to watch the dems on this committee trying to spin this. Good luck! This looks bad for you in so many ways.
Outstanding! I agree with every word! With your permission I am going use these very words in my email to my next to worthless congressperson.
Executive Priviledge proves the lie that Obama did not authorize F&F.
Cant assert a priviledge over something you didnt know about.
Gee, who would’ve thunk, put criminals in positions of unrestrained political power and unrestrained crime occurs. Foolish to think the congress criminals will seriously try to hold the WH criminals to account. If justice and equal enforcement of the law is to ever reemerge in the US it will take action from the common people to exact their power over this currently corrupted political system.
Let’s have a poll (or pole?): Who is going to make the first statement on this outrage, Palin or Romney?
HUGE problem here:
If the President can invoke Executive Privilege it would mean that there was some communication between the President and the DOJ or others regarding Fast & Furious. Ok, then if that is the case, Holder must be immediately charged with Perjury.
Also, it would be a PR nightmare as all the commies in this administration have denied the President was ever involved.
On the other hand, if the President cannot invoke Executive Privilege because he was not in communication then he is obstructing congress and Holder MUST provide the documents requested.
Either way, the WH should lose big in the PR arena unless we the people ignore this like the MSM surely will.
In any event, the only legal way our enemy within President CANNOT invoke E.P. UNLESS HE WAS IN THE COMMUNICATION LOOP.
People get involved with this. Call your local radio talk show programs. Write letters/e-mails to your TV stations. Write to your representatives DEMANDING the rules of Executive Privilege be followed. Don’t just sit and read what other have done.
Obama probably knew and approved the program to begin with, so Holder is protecting his boss. If it were not for the one American border guard killed, the story would have gotten no attention--the media doesn't care about the 300 dead Mexicans as a result of the program. Not that they care about Brian Terry either.
Why would we possibly need those? We have the MSM, as we have had for decades./S It is only now that the new media is showing some light on Democrat crimes, that there appears to be a need for a House and a Senate.
You are more than welcome to use those words. I’m listening to Rush now and wish he would advocate the same!
Yesterday I heard that Boehner was ‘on the fence’ about Issa calling for a contempt vote in the House and I thought I would scream! Now that the drums are beating loudly, he’s being dragged along - ugh.
