LOL... Dowdy.. I think the defense of “everybody else did it like this ended when I was 11 or twelve”. Apparently, the Bolton hearings had a last minute executive privilege. I cannot believe I am watching this.

It seems you are right, he has no worries. Whatever his own office is or is not doing matters not. Does he even go to his office? Can you imagine, admitting in public you do not know what goes on in your office? I would call that incompetence.

The answer, more clear every passing second, is No. There is not a single one. Clueless, soulless, lacking any moral compass whatsoever. I'd spit on every last one of them. Unless they were on fire, in which case I'd pour gasoline.

I pray the family of the dead agent gets really vocal, really ‘political’ and makes themselves available to the superpacs. It may be the only opportunity they have for justice.

Let the dems try painting them as vindictive. That’s a battle they will never win. Not with the facts as they are. Plenty of libs would try and that would only turn the rest of the country against them.

I second the question. Better not be more than a week.

what a load of nonsense (thinking crap)
I thought they were voting on contempt. Not just a vote on thinking about it.
stall stall stall rearrange to bush's fault.
They gave guns to criminals who murdered hundreds of Mexicans and they're own American citizens.
Back to first thought.

Issa’s committee voted for contempt.

Now the full house gets to vote on contempt.

Holder is in contempt of the United States, its constitution and its people. Not just congress.

People who voted for Obama are in contempt of the United States. We are on the verge of destruction. Half the people hate their own country and these people represent them.

If the measure against Holder passes the House, it will be sent to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, who will convene a grand jury that would decide whether to indict Holder. The U.S. Attorney’s office would be the designated prosecutor for the committee if Holder were to be indicted. The attorney general would face a maximum sentence of one year in prison if convicted by a jury.

If the Bush started the program, and it was so bad why did Obama keep it going — stupid justification

Bush did not start Fast & Furious. President Bush started operation 'Gunwalker' and Fast and Furious became an Obama Administration sub operation under operation Gunwalker.

Correction of my last post to you: change the name of “Operation Gunwalker” to “Project GunRunner.”

Operation Fast and Furious was a ‘100% operation’ under the Obama/Holder DOJ.
