Skip to comments.Carney: "Bush started Fast and Furious; Obama ended it"
Posted on 06/21/2012 9:55:17 AM PDT by pabianice
Rush just played this tape. Rancid Media is backing Carney. Rush wants to know why Obama is invoking executive privilege if (1) Obama was not involved and/or (2) Obama ended an operation he knew nothing about. Rush: "It's all falling apart for them." CBS forced to report on F&F for first time because of Obama's involvement.
Another opportunity to blame Bush. The easy way out for a liar.
Rush also said he thought one of the reasons for invoking executive privilege is to distract attention from the economy. That’s a head scratcher.
This is one lie that cannot be allowed to stand.
If it was all Bush’s fault, then why withhold documents?
Ummm....I very seldom defend the MSM but CBS is the only network that HAS been covering F & F. Sheryl Atkinsson has done outstanding work and should be praised for her efforts to get to the truth.
Now, PMSNBC has been a different story and Brian Williams has clearly been dragged, against his will, into even mentioning the story. He appears terrified that he will no longer be Bambi’s favorite lackey!
I agree with Rush on this. I believe it is *one* of the reasons.
You gotta be kiddin’ me!??!
This current crop of corrupt officials takes the cake from all I’ve seen. Of course, FDR successfully blamed Hoover for his failings even though his administration admittedly used the same playbook and still came out looking like a hero. But, I wasn’t around back then.
If it were Bush’s fault, there would be no basis for invoking “executive privilege”.....
If that is true, then the documentation would convict Bush and Show Obama is innocent
so.... release the documentation and prove it
If I ever met one of these media bastards, I'd bust them in the face with my old man fist...it'd take 6 months to heal while I'm in jail, but it would be worth it.
The new mantra. Does not matter if it's true as long as it sticks until election day. They did the same to Sara Palin with her alleged claim that she said she could see Russia from her backyard.
This kid is a bad as Baghdad Bob!
This is very easy.
Show us the evidence, or you’re lying.
You’re right. Sherryl Atkinson of CBS, and William Lajeunesse of FOX News have been in the forefront on this story for a long time.
In reading some of the older articles about the FF, I realized that the Democrats claimed that Bush started it because he refused to renew the ban on assault weapons. Holder with drew the statements that he made because he knew that they accusations against Bush were just excuses, not valid accusations.
It’s the old, “The Devil Made Me Do It” excuse, Bush being the Devil.
“CBS forced to report on F&F for first time because of Obama’s involvement.”CBS forced to report on F&F for first time because of Obama’s involvement.”
Not so. CBS has been reporting on it all along. It is NBC which has ignored it.
“This is one lie that cannot be allowed to stand.”
the Big Queer Media has been trying to sweep this under the rug, and ignore it, for over a year now. They are losing, and Obama’s involvement means they now must cover it.
But, if you think this is important, you must be a CRAZY PERSON, as one lib told me this morning.
Remember, in the world these people live in, telling the truth about a Democrat is a HATE CRIME.
Bush's gun running involved TRACEABLE guns which were monitored all the way to their destination for the purpose of catching the big fish.
Obama's gun running involved NO TRACKING of guns for the purpose of escalating violence 'from guns coming from America' to build an excuse for Obama to enact strict assault weapons bans in the U.S.
The differences in method and intent couldn't be more stark.
To quote John Lovitz, “Yeah, that's the ticket”.
They don’t even pretend to be telling the truth anymore.
CBS has now locked Sheryl Atkinsson in their basement with only food & water.
Fast and Furious was designed so that the drug cartels would use the weapons, kill people, and then use the killings to implement gun control.
Gun Walking under Bush is not Fast and Furious under Obama.
“If it were Bushs fault, there would be no basis for invoking executive privilege.....”
Hah hah! Good point. Let’s see them answer that!
Agree. CBS has covered the story.
Question is will a MSM step up for this generation’s Watergate? Or will the National Enquirer be up for another Pulitzer?
How close was John Edwards from the White House?
Bush’s project also involved some bona fide arrests.
They must cover it, but that doesn't mean they will cover it.
Holder's obstruction would be leading the news every hour if this were the Buch administration. As the reporting goes now, the public can't be faulted for not even knowing why executive privilege was evoked.
Fast & Furious is an Obamah/Holder operation!
Bush never, ever let guns walk into drug cartel hands.
Show us the evidence, or youre lying.
Most of the documents (approx 7-8000 out of 140K) they released were related to Widereceiver, the preceeding program to F&F. FFGate is Watergate on steroids. At least 2 US citizens were not murdered as a result of Watergate.
The 0bama regime took one look at the Bush operation and thought it would be a brilliant move to morph it into their anti-gun agenda.
The Department of Justice s Operation Fast and Furious: Accounts of ATF Agents
(above) Four ATF field agents testify under oath that they "never even heard of intentionally letting guns "walk" before F&F."
Hope Carney was wearing his asbestos undies.
Wide Receiver ended while Bush was in office.
Not sure which came first—Gunwalker or Fast and Furious—but the basic program was started under Bush, and Obama expanded the entire operation into what it is today.
Carney and Obama have been lying.

There was never an operation called Gunwalker.
Started in 2006 - operation ended in 2007.
Oh come on! There’s a tape of Holder admitting under oath that Fast and Furious (Obama) and Wide Receiver (Bush) were two different operations and admitted the difference. Carney is flat out lying and stupidly lying at that because it’s a provable falsehood!
One thing I have never heard, one way or the other, is when Project Gunrunner began. It’s the agency-wide umbrella that F&F, Castaway and other as-yet-unnamed operations were run under the 0bama/Holder regime. I don’t know if the name was used before 0bama or not.
Is there such a word as “lamest?” If so, tattoo it to Jay Carney’s forehead! What happened with Bush is totally different than what happened under Obama. Face the truth. On the other hand, did President Eisenhower take the heat for the failed Bay of Pigs disaster? No, I believe that mess was executed under President Kennedy’s watch!
I think he was referring to Wide Receiver.
The thing Carney fails to add was that when Bush found out about it, he ordered it stopped.
“Wide Receiver” is codename for Barney Frank.
Here you go. This website has an excellent timeline of what happened when:
