Well, the fact is, during Bush’s term with operation Wide Receiver, hundreds of weapons were sent into Mexico, and many were never recovered and were lost in that black hole.

You deceptively omitted the fact that the ATF under the Bush Administration was trying to track and interdict the much smaller number of purchased guns, sometimes while tracking with GPS devices and sometimes while coordinating with Mexican law enforcement, in an effort to stop the gun trafficking by tracing the existing traffic to the drug cartel leaders. Contrarily the ATF and its agents under the Obama Administration was ordered by the Eric Holder's DOJ not to interdict the far more extensive and consequential gun trafficking under the guise of not being able to successfully prosecute such cases, even when the gun traffickers could have been arrested and prosecuted.

Bush’s failed program put tracking devices in the stocks. Since the program failed, the Bush administration stopped it.

The progressives loved the failure of Bush’s program so much, they streamlined it, pumped it up on steroids and used it to send thousands of guns over the border.

But let’s blame Bush.
