The timing of this is perfect. We want this issue to be front and center for the election and too late for the Rats to dump Obama and nominate someone else.
By claiming executive privilege they extend the game until the election...
The fact executive privilege is baseless and has no authority to be used is meaningless to these two asshats
I agree Issa has done a great job. Despite having been chairman for only 1 1/2 years (Grassley has been in the minority for the entire time) he has doggedly pursued this to the point the President has been forced to invoke executive privilege. True, there are some who don't understand the separation of powers concept and think Issa should be able to act arbitrarily, but all factors considered, he has done about as well as anyone could reasonably expect.
Yep, old Joe Bite Me is a funny guy even when his foot isn’t in mouth. :-)
The scary thing is he sitting in the number 2 seat.
I have none, although I expect Holder to be gone rather soon. You see, I hold out hope that our system of checks and balances can still work. If I'm wrong, then that's truly sad for our republic. What I will not do is wallow in defeatism, I'll leave that to others.
And he's probably clean on F&F! He doesn't know anything about anything because they don't tell him anything! LOL!
There's a good chance Holder will go down and after all he's pulled since becoming AG it's well deserved. He's a most corrupt AG and probably is reflecting the actions of his boss who's more corrupt, IMO.
I’ve no doubt at all you’re right, they can’t tell him anything they don’t want repeated. LOL!
I like that graphic, it’s prophetic. :-)
There’s some more here...
"What did the President know and when did he know it"
If so it is a dumb one..
IMHO and I am no legal scholar, but doesn't Issa have "Standing" to take this to the Supreme's because they have ruled unless it direct communication it is not covered?
So if it isn't and he ask them to review, How can they not say NO?????
Love to see the Supreme's beeotch slap him again like he was pulling a Nixon...
Are you watching the Issa hearing on C-Span? Looks like they’ll be coming back on in about 5 minutes...
Check again in a day or so. They’re already talking about bringing the “MIRT” — the Malicious Intruder Response Team — to put the thread back into full DUmp lock-step compliance.
Also note the low “post” count of the not-so-DUmmies — they are almost certainly akin to LOUSY FREEPER TROLLS.
Exactly! I’m really liking the way Issa is handling this.
Obama and Holder have to be “as nervous as two long-tailed cats in a room full of rocking chairs”.
What you’re seeing right now is a replay of earlier testimony. That will go on for at least another hour.
Yep. This is the "under the radar" gun control he was talking about.
Whoops, they just came back live, never mind my earlier reply.
I’ve been checking C-Span but the House is doing business.
Fox News just showed a bit of the hearing and said they’d be back to it in a while.
Got it now on puter on C-Span 3.
