Washington -- A key congressional Republican who had threatened to bring a contempt citation against Attorney General Eric Holder if he did not comply with a demand for "Operation Fast and Furious" documents by 5 p.m. Thursday, has backed off his stated deadline. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-California, who has the backing of the committee's Republican majority, has granted a Justice Department request for an extension. No new deadline was set. The Justice Department did not dispute the committee statement.

At one time I expected some justice for the dead border guard and his family. No longer. A government that does this and allows this is worthless, pointless. Our government exists solely for the benefit of our ruling class and nothing else matters to them except to continue the ride for themselves. As for the people....they deserve it. We've allowed it and do nothing to end it.....as long as enough of us get our cut. What a tragedy. I can't wait until it all collapses. Then maybe we can begin to fix it.

It is so easy to say let all collapse, but the suffering that would cause in unacceptable. We are all frustrated with has befallen our country. Our time will come. They are unmasked and the country is aware.

So a new deadline wasn’t set. Looks like holder is going to be off the hook. I’m sick of these criminals.

I agree the country is (has been) aware. That’s why the suffering is deserved.

I’ve been hoping that the reports of Boner stepping in and forcing Issa and his committee to cave were not true. But it certainly wouldn’t be out of character for that corrupt wimp. I wonder how much Obama paid him to do this?

They are starting to wind it up.

Folding up like Judge Malihih from Ga.

Contempt of Court doesn’t mean much any more I guess.

I hope I am wrong.

Holder and obastard have nothing to fear and don’t care now what anyone thinks or does. They are bullet proof and teflon.

We on the right could not hate them anymore than we do and in spite of that are too weak or coward to do anything else about it but hate them.

The left still love them and will always love them since if their support is not faltering by now it never will. Their love is unconditional and obastard and company can get by with anything and do anything to their adoring followers on the left, they will still love them.

Those who let Holder off are guilty of neglect of duty. They cannot turn away and let him off.

We must throw them all out of office next November!

Like I have said since the Beginning of this ACT OF TREASON, this is and always be a DOG AND PONY SHOW to take your eyes off what is really happening. The only people held accountable will be the WHISTLEBLOWERS responsible for making this ACT OF TREASON Public.

Yes but the deadline needs to be extended past Obama’s Presidency beyond the statute of limitations, This way, it can all just be “reported” to the American people as an “unfortunate lack of oversight” by the Holder DOJ and a declared a “teachable moment” by an arrogant former President Obama. If the wheels of justice grind slowly, the wheels of the department of justice are square.

You are correct, I can see it now, Eric Holder’s operation of Giving Weapons to the ENEMY in THE WAR ON DRUGS, was the greatest thing we could ever do for the WAR ON DRUGS, Now that the ENEMY is Sufficiently Armed the American People need Us in the Government even More than ever. Thank you for your recognition that this plan to GIVE WEAPONS TO THE ENEMY IN THE WAR ON DRUGS will Serve to Perpetuate and Expand the Government at Every Level. He will be Praised by ALL IN GOVERNMENT when they realize that it was a JOBS PROGRAM FOR GOVERNMENT.

Surprise —anybody? seems to add credence to the rumor about the “fix” being in. Stepping away from it slowly to avoid complete rout because the GOP is distracted by “other” things like “hey it’s campaign season.” Cant be distracted by an
investigation into corruption within this Administration— folk might connect the dots and see where the GOP has been
complicit -when it was convenient.Let’s distract them with this anti-Catholic— contraception straw man. and step away — and hope nobody cares anymore.

Friday?

No new deadline was set.

Yeah... SUUUURE they will... ;-)

Ok, now can we seriously start talking about a pitchforks and torches solution? Or is there some other futile hope we need to hold out for?

CNN reports that Rep. Issa granted Holder extra time after waiting 12 months. CNN doesn’t report much on F&F but their audience now knows that this is no witch hunt. That meme is a dog that won’t hunt now.
