I agree. We've got an awful lot of linguine-spined Republicans in the House, and we all need to keep a close eye on "WHO VOTES TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS" and who chickens out.

"COMPROMISE" is a dirty word!!!

Seems to me declaring Executive Privilege under these circumstances is setting a precedence for muddying the waters.

That would be a typical ploy of the Left to open for, and to argue that which is historically understood as accepted rule, or law.

This is a terrible direction they have taken with regard to the future I would think, and the reaction by the GOP should be overwhelmingly in favor of the future.

Indeed. Under the category of expose the culprits for what they are trying to accomplish.

What are they trying to accomplish? I’d say that if they win the argument, and muddy the waters successfully that Obama will attempt to use Executive Privilege as established by this action for virtually every illegal action he has committed since January 2009.

They should keep shoving bloody photos in their faces of the people killed because of their anti-2nd Amendment tactics, causes by their lies, and their maliced strategy.
Show everyone who trusted these Fabian Fascists, including the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF, that they're responsible for these deaths!
Rub their noses in it!

Holder will get his revenge in a 2nd Obama administration, especially if a seat opens up on the Supreme Court.

I know it's wishing for too much,
but maybe if Romney gets a spine (NOT) and appoints some real federal Judges and federal Prosecutors,
then Holder will serve several of those 4 years in prison,
where he and all the rest of the Obama appointees belong, along with the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF.

If Romney wins the election, Obama will pardon Holder on their way out. Holder will never see a day in jail for all the murders he’s responsible for.

After Holder refuses to procecute himself Levin recommends taking civil action and sueing Holder in a federal court.

This is how the Pelosi House Judiciary (Conyers) proceeded in their indictments of GWB WH staff like Karl Rove when the AG would not proceed, and the court upheld the executive privilege for the Bush WH. The cases are different (executive privilege for justice dept?? ) but look the same to the average viewer.

Question 1 : How long will this take?
Question 2 : How will this affect Obama's re-election chances?

Over in happy-Hannity world Holder will simply resign. "Let not your heart be troubled " LOL

I agree but in all fairness...

The Democrats screw things up all the time too. The difference is that MSM's Willing Accomplices ignore, cover up, and rationalize their screw-ups, while making the GOP's screw-ups headline news.

PS: cool screen name.

It’s been article rich since last Friday when Obama declared amnesty. I made Saturday & Sunday posts just to keep up with the number of threads. And as long as F&F remains heated up, I expect it to continue. Thanks go to all you who contribute links, such as you and MestaMachine. This is a big help in keeping up with the posts.
