The mainstream media hasnt covered Operation Fast and Furious too closely, but as far as Republicans are concerned the botched gun-walking operation is money in the bank.
In an email to Republican friends, GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan called for Attorney General Eric Holders resignation, while soliciting donations.
Ryan says Holder has misled Congress and entirely botched the investigation of the Operation Fast and Furious debacle yet he still leads our nations Justice Department.
Because President Obama wont fire Holder, Ryan suggests that voters fire both of them this November. To help, Ryan requests that email recipients donate now.
Over the weekend Univision broke the news that 57 additional, previously undisclosed, weapons related to Fast and Furious were used in Mexican crimes. And this morning two more border agents were shot, one fatally.
Republicans did not hesitate to evoke the Fast and Furious when speaking about the incident. Sen. Charles E.

That gun walking should now be known as Obama-guns, since Obama invoked presidential privilege to protect Holder. So, to go along with the Obama-phones, we should also have, Obama-guns.
... and don’t forget 0bamaCare, now known as the 0bamaTax.
If the reports about his current plans for Libya are correct, we’ll soon be seeing 0bamaBombs. There are also plenty of victims of 0bamaLayoffs.
Given the way congress has handled F&F [it hasn't] -- which is essentially on its face both unwarranted/unauthorized act[s] of war and, by definition, state-sponsored terrorism -- it really isn't that hard, nor is it undeserved. In essence, F&F proves that the Republican-party is not about government accountability.
Yes, I like that, Obamalayoffs and Obamabombs. We can always label the drone attacks, Obamabombs even if he doesn’t bomb Libya.
ding X3...incompetence at best, if not outright complicity, at least by the ranking 'R's in CONgress...
