Posted on 09/21/2012 8:51:08 AM PDT by markomalley
Asked about the Fast and Furious program at the Univision forum on Thursday, President Obama falsely claimed that the program began under President George W. Bush.
I think its important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration, the president said. When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned a inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued, confirming that in fact Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and the people who did initiate this were held accountable.
In actuality, the Fast and Furious program was started in October 2009, nine months into the Obama presidency.

Tapper is the only honest one left. And he’s a lefty.
Next he’ll say WWII started under the Bush administration.
Obama LIED? I’m shocked. Well, not really. I am, however, shocked Jake Tapper pointed it out. When will he call out Obama’s other numerous lies?
It’s ABC News that wrote this?? Knock me over with a feather...
Whataya talkin about? Everybody knows Bush was too young for that.
It started under Reagan...and Clinton finally put it to a stop...c'mon now.
/sarc (in case that is necessary)
It’s Jake Tapper on a blog. Don’t get excited.
However, if Romney pulled this one, it would be all you’d be reading today. That’s how it works in the current day’s re-write of “1984”.
NBC will not report this until it’s confirmed.
Bush put him up to it. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Don’t worry, ABC and its comrades will be back in Romney attack mode tomorrow. They put out these type of “fair and balanced” pieces just so they can claim impartiality. But for every piece like this there are 20 in the other direction.
maybe they are embarrassed that Univision did a better job confronting Obama than they have the last 4 years.
This is how Jake Tapper is. He is as fair as any liberal MSM reporter - perhaps the fairest. It is not surprising coming from him.
Maybe he thought since it was on a Spanish channel we wouldn’t figure it out. He can’t remember when this started - he can’t remember how much debt there was when he started. This guy is a complete imbecile. I think Romney will wipe the floor with him in the debates and we win this thing.
Obama tells a 100% bare-faced lie, and the media won’t cover it.
NBC will not report this, period.
The Univision interview was a huge deal, and I’m betting Obama, or more likely Michelle and Valerie, are after someone’s head for letting it happen.
But, from the MSM, ....crickets.
Yet Hispanics watch Univision, and it had to hurt him with them. Tougher questions than he (or even Carney, for that matter) have ever had to face from the sycophants in the White House press corpse (misspelling fully intended, with Jake Tapper excepted—at least he tries).
“Nothing is my fault. I am perfect. Other people make mistakes. Heck, I crap ice cream!”
“We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.”
They covered it, They just repeated what he said as fact. Now that that Fast and Furious thing is all over they can move on to the outragous racist statement Romney said about the price of milk.
” . Now that that Fast and Furious thing is all over they can move on to the outragous racist statement Romney said about the price of milk.”
Free press......not in THIS country anymore.
Heck, if that’s true then I have just one thing to say. Eat your Ice Cream Obama.
Say, what? From ABC!
Since Obama claimed he had no idea the program existed, how can he say anything about when it began?
As I tell my kids, “Each lie is no more believable than the previous one, so don’t even bother. Just stare blankly into space.”
What flavor, please? Hah! LOL!!!
IOWs 0bama is flat out lying. It is a lie. F&F began solely on his watch.
and after some time and so many lies, a liar believes them himself..
I anxiously await Nov. 6th
Bush cannot prove he didn't, so....
Hell, that fools so in love with himself he would probably love the flavor and ask for seconds. ROFLMAO
He is just covering his ass,he can now go his way and let the story die,it will not go any further
