Issa to Holder on Gunrunner: We're looking at you and your key people. (Hugh and series alert)
The Daily Caller ^ | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 05/03/2011 12:20:11 PM PDT by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

Rep. Darrell Issa, the California Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, was able to question Attorney General Eric Holder for the first time over the Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious scandal during a Tuesday morning hearing of the House Judiciary Committee.

(snip)

“We’re not looking at straw buyers, Mr. Attorney General, we’re looking at you,” Issa said. “We’re looking at you, we’re looking at your key people who knew or should’ve known about this.”

Serious, not series!

LOL I make my share of typos, but I see “Series” in FR posts about 1000 times more than I should! :)

I hope it gets ugly for Holder. Holder has been a truly contemptible, tyranny loving, freedom hating, POS A-hole for decades now. I hope he gets a cell with a couple of “his people”.

It is a spoof; merely playing with words.

Let’s hope so. The sooner this rat-b*stard is brought to heel the better.

They better not mess with Holder’s “people”. He really really cares about his “people”...

“Hugh” should be “Huge” also.

“Hugh and series” is a longrunning inside joke at FR. Not sure of the origins. Lol

I thought it was curious that Holder was NOT in attendance Sunday to watch the mission in real time...is he being eased out..

I thought the same thing. Either that, or Obama didn’t want a visual reminder of the KSM debacle.

South Park spoof of Al Gore IIRC is the origin of “hugh” and “series”.

I noticed a nasty trick the writer played.

The last paragraph on page one:

The project began as a trial during the Bush administration in Laredo, Texas in 2005. It ultimately morphed into a national program in 2006. The guns were sold and tracked electronically, giving law enforcement agents valuable intelligence on where the weapons went and who had them.

And the first paragraph on page two (which some people wouldn't even bother reading):

During the Bush years, no guns were allowed to cross the border into Mexico. When President Obama took office in 2009, things changed. Obama’s ATF continued Project Gunrunner, but made a crucial decision to allow guns to be “walked” into Mexico. The weapons eventually ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

If Issa is genuine in investigating to assign responsibility for the deaths of Federal Officers and innocent civilians to Holder and ATF command staff, then this is huge and serious.

If, on the other hand this is a shill RINO misdirecting whitewash of Holder and the ATF bigwigs, then it is hugh and series, in it's proper FR usage.

I certainly pray Issa is the real deal here, but Rats in Justice, FBI and ATF have never been taken to task by Congress ever, only Idaho.

Somehow in my mind, I am picturing a rug being lifted and bad things being swept under it.

I just have no faith anymore with people in high places being held accountable for their actions.

“The notion that somehow or another that this Justice Department is responsible for those deaths, that assertion is offensive,” Holder said,

Warming up the pitch for the race card...

The Obozo, Holder and the rest of the gang should not be offered an out to “resign from office”. Political accountability to our laws needs to be enforced if we are to ever regain our country. Not naive, just hopeful.

It’s an old joke from by gone years here at FR....the headline should have been: Huge and Serious instead it was **Hugh and Series**...so it’s kinda been an inside joke at FR...

They won’t need a way out this will die soon, and no one will be punished.

You don’t really expect Issa to do anything do you?

Not naive to DC protectionism but Issa is entertaining when he talks tough. The only thing I ever expect form our politicians is disappointment. After all, slime is slimy.

Well, it is not hugh or series, just a minor (or is it miner?) detail?

Am I part of the club now?
