Certain folks just have to stick together. It must be those nasty racist Weepubwicans, that make us have to be that way.

Looks like this is where the rubber meets the road. 0 has a tough decision: the bus or the ‘hispanic’ vote.

He’s just admitted that Obama was in this up to his eyeballs. That makes the President of the United States an accessory before AND after the fact to the murders of 2 US Federal Agents and God only knows how many innocent Mexican citizens.

What a weasel. There is something incriminating there. Of course.

Since the legislative branch is CO-EQUAL with the executive, can he get away with this? /rhetorical question

I suppose if the documents include communications WITH the “Executive” then Obama will probably agree.

What did the President know and when did he know it?

Fine. Let Obama personally explain why a government sanctioned gun running operation that has resulted in dozens of deaths including a border enforcement agent should be protected by his administration.

Should make a good talking point for the Romney's campaign, if he has the courage.

That is my thought too. If any of us gave a gun to a violent criminal and he killed someone would we be arrested and charged with accessory to murder. There really are two Americas and only one is subject to the rule of law.

Now we KNOW they have something to hide.The claim of executive privilege just removed all doubt.

Holder is the firewall to Zippy and he entire Administration.

Call your Congressmen and Senators.

The libs went nuts over Nixon for two years—in the middle of the Cold War and the Vietnam War wind-down—but no one was killed in Watergate.

We have two Federal agents dead and over 300 Mexicans dead,
thanks to Eric Holder and the corrupt DOJ. Add in the incompetent Janet Napolitano, who is to this day not securing our borders.

Whether Boehner and McConnell wanted it or not—we have a Constituional crisis on our hands.

And they better do the jobs they were sworn to do. We are facing out and out lawlessness here.

There is no more dancing around. We have an executive branch that considers itself unaccountable to anyone.

Looks like a frenzied panic to me. That damned republican just won’t back down or roll over to the minions of der Fuehrer.

The more they froth at the mouth the more mistakes and blatant lies they will commit.

Increase the pressure on all issues and move move away from your gutless past GOP.

This is all out war for the Republic and the Constitution; not a “gentlemans’s” disagreement.

If this was a Republican administration this scandal would have a “gate” attached to it. We need to get one started. Border-gate? Murder-gate? Holder-gate?

The question is,

Will any ‘reporter’ DARE to ask Obama about Holder and Fast&Furious? To his face, on camera, and direct to the relevant point?

And it should always be highlighted that this was all done in an attempt to gin up anti-gun sentiment and create momentum for legislative action consistent with that antipathy.

This is starting to look like a conspiracy to cover up the murder of two US agents, a large number of Mexicans and maybe some additional Americans by Eric Holder and unidentified White House officials, possibly including Obama. I suppose this now has to be litigated and Holder is in a position the delay this endlessly. Any Freeper attorneys care to comment on the process to litigate an Executive Privilege claim?

Let's see there's stonewalling, citing executive privilege, giving Congress the runaround...

Sounds just like Watergate except for all the dead bodies.

Can we all say, "Constitutional Crisis?"

The extension of Executive Privilege to the internal documents of the various Federal Departments is an abomination; unprecedented, extra-legal, morally repugnant, and tyrannical. Such an action should merit a swift rejection by an emergency convening of the SCOTUS.

However, the communist appointed and ideologically anti-constitution sisters (Ruth Bader-Lesbian, Sonia SotoLesbian, and Elena LesbianKagan) will think this idea is just peachy, while Justice Breyer will find his anti-American citations in Napoleonic Law.

Grab some popcorn..
