Sheila Jackson Lee blames Bush for Fast and Furious
Examiner.com ^ | 6/20/12 | Charlie Spierling

Posted on 06/20/2012 8:12:53 AM PDT by Nachum

“This Fast and Furious debacle started under the Bush administration,” Jackson Lee declared. “And it is been evidenced by various reports that it started under the ATL office in Arizona unbeknownst to leadership in Washington DC, at least leadership that came in under the Obama administration in this instance, Eric Holder.”

Attempts by Democrats to pin the Fast and Furious operation on Bush, however, don’t stand. National Review’s Andrew McCarthy explains:

Wide Receiver actually involved not gun-walking but controlled delivery. Unlike gun-walking, which seems (for good reason) to have been unheard of until Fast & Furious, controlled delivery is a very common law enforcement tactic. Basically, the agents know the bad guys have negotiated a deal to acquire some commodity that is either illegal itself (e.g., heroin, child porn) or illegal for them to have/use (e.g., guns, corporate secrets). The agents allow the transfer to happen under circumstances where they are in control — i.e., they are on the scene conducting surveillance of the transfer, and sometimes even participating undercover in the transfer. As soon as the transfer takes place, they can descend on the suspects, make arrests, and seize the commodity in question — all of which makes for powerful evidence of guilt.

Same here. My first thought is that it had to be from some satire site.

If that were the case (of course, it’s not...), then one would think they’d want all the evidence out before the public. Dumb argument, real dumb.

It is amazing that a president who was mocked as the village idiot, caricatured as a chimpanzee, and portrayed as a little rich drunken frat boy was responsible for so much. He stole the 2000 election, masterminded 9/11, duped many Dems in Congress into voting to authorize the Iraq invasion, stole the 2004 election, then caused Hurricane Katrina, while blowing up levees in New Orleans and directing the water toward poor black neighborhoods. Amazing!

Wouldn't do any good. The vast majority of her constituency is stupid enough to match. My poor sister lives in a nice north Houston neighborhood which somehow got put into her district.

Last cycle, my sis and others in her neighborhood joined with moderate black leaders to try to elect a successful black man with brains. He still lost.

It would be hard to come up with anything re SJL that could be considered satire or unbelievable. Between the mayor in Houston and SJL we seem to have an assortment of fruits and nuts concentrated in one city.

In order for her to know this, she must have access to evidence not provided to the committee.

Where did she get that information?

“it started under the ATL office in Arizona”

I thought ATL was Atlanta, not Arizona.

Doesn't matter; she's a dolt any way you look at it.

She wants to know if astronauts will pick up the American Flag when they go to Mars.

American Flag on Mars, you say....what a dope....

“Shiela has her hair wrapped way to tight”

Houston radio guy calls Sheila's hairstyle as a “double weave crown”, or, if the moment is truly radiant, she'll go for the “triple weave crown”!

She is the queen hog for aisle seats whenever Congress is called before the president.

Operation Wide Receiver which began under the Bush where efforts were made to track the guns. But the fact remains hundreds of weapons were lost in black hole of Mexico in Wide Receiver...When it was found some of the weapons were lost, the program was shut down.

We have no idea how many people were killed in regards to those weapons.

Jackson Lee is a moron politician from Texas..Everyone knows this.

Was fast and furious worse? Absolutely, no question!

But the bottom line is, the government concocting schemes where guns are sent into the colossal violent corrupt country of Mexico, was a really bad and stupid idea, regardless of which politicians were in charge.

This would be like intentionally distributing heroin or hard core child porn all over the country, in the hopes of finding/tracking the users. El Stupidio!

BTW, for the politically hysterical...I hope Omama and his AG are charged, prosecuted and imprisoned in regards to F&F.
