My friend Jane Woodworth looked over her newspaper, put down her coffee mug, and said , " Imagine being so down and out that you have to deter people from talking about the economy with the news that you are an accessory to murder." Nothing better summed up a week where the economy continued its tumble, the presidential approval rate continued its downward slide, and the President invoked executive privilege with respect to the government gun running operation which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people including our own border agent, Brian Terry, and perhaps an ICE agent of ours as well.
There was only one thing left for the failing president to do.

I love it how he spells out the payback from Obama after those elite Hollywood turkeys bragged about not taking anything in returm for campaign contributions.
Obama has the pay to play game pat, probably as well as Murtha did and that’s saying a lot.
We have been asking friends and family if they know about the Fast and Furious debacle. No one seems to know about it a couple of them said, “the movie”? The only ones that are talking about it with us are our rural neighbors and friends that own guns.
It's sad that the majority of people still get their news from the enemedia.
