Obama blames Bush for Fast and Furious, contradicts his DOJ IG
Washington Examiner ^ | 09/20/2012 | Joel Gehrke

President Obama claimed that George W. Bush began for Operation Fast and Furious, in addition to contradicting his inspector general by claiming that he gave Congress “almost all” of the documents pertaining to the gun walking.

“I think it’s important for us to understand that Fast and Furious was a field operation begun under the previous administration,” Obama said when asked if he will fire Attorney General Eric Holder. Operation Fast and Furious began in 2009. The president was conflating Fast and Furious with Operation Wide Receiver, a law enforcement tactic that began in 2006 and ended in 2007 which was substantially different from Fast and Furious (although some guns did go from the United States to Mexico in Wide Receiver).

Speaking more broadly, Obama added that "at any moment in the federal government, there will be people who do dumb things."

Barry is a whineyass little baby. What if Gore had been elected and Barry the manchild didn’t have Bush to kick around and blame everything bad on? Vote November 6th and as many times as you can before then! Early voting is on! We’ve got to get rid of this clown.

Isn't there still a lawsuit asking the court to overturn the EO?

Normally I would guess the court would be in the tank for Obama, but I've heard there is precedent for overturning.

Lyin' little sh*t!

If there was nothing there and everything relevant was released, then why did he invoke Executive Privilege?

The little t^rd simply can't resist trying to tie this to George Bush, can he?

November can't come soon enough.

Oh yeah, you bet he knew. Holder, Napolitano and others to include Ken Melson were in Mexico in April 2009 meeting with Mexican officials regarding weapons trafficking. I’m quite sure that “Fast and Furious” was discussed at length. What a bunch of criminals we have in high positions.

Obama blames Bush for Fast and Furious,

I'm surprised he didn't blame bush for the FOLLOWING:

The BOSTON TEA PARTY

GEORGE WASHINGTON cutting down the cherry tree

The WAR BETWEEN THE STATES

LINCOLN's ASSASSINATION

The Spanish-American War

FDR's polio

WW 1

The Great DEPRESSION

The Hurricane of 1938

WW 2

Korean War

Stevenson loss in 1956

JFK's ASSASSINATION

RFK's ASSASSINATION

Teddy Kennedy's drunk driving event

WATERGATE

the 1994 DEM house loss

and

the fall of man in the GARDEN OF EDEN...

“I think it’s important for us to understand that Fast and Furious was a field operation begun under the previous administration,” Obama said

Jug Ears is lying per usual. Under GW Bush there was an operation with a totally different name -Operation Wide Receiver- that was pretty much a bust and lost 400+ guns in Mexico.  All it takes is a glance at Wikipedia to catch Bammy Boy in lies

Fast and Furious lost 2000 guns in Mexico and claims it recovered some
