Obama’s “Fast and Furious” Gun-running Scandal Grows
New American ^ | 05-28-2013 | Alex Newman

As if there were not already enough scandals plaguing the Obama administration, the federal “Fast and Furious” operation that armed Mexican drug cartels is back in the news after the Justice Department Inspector General released a report blasting a government leak intended to smear a key ATF whistleblower.

My day will be made when I see people like O, Holder, and the rest of these thugs sitting in a 4x6 cell. Until then, this is just a dog & pony show.

Of all the You Didn't Build That scandals I've seen thus far, Fast & Furious is far and away the most horrible.

I'd like to see Eric "the Red" Holder spend the rest of his life in prison; whether he ever does a day's time or not, I'm very sure history will tell more than one or two monstrous tales about him.

Stacking all the scandals up at once so that the American public becomes overwhelmed and can't Deny anymore that this is a crooked administration.

What I'd like to know is, why the h&!! is the Mexican government being sooooo quiet about this? There were hundreds of Mexicans, including about 15 teenagers at a party, who were killed with F&F guns. Mexican officials screamed about our border agents shooting a drug runner in the butt. Barry has to be paying them off.

The problem with the leading voices on F&F (and part of their ineffectiveness) is that they talk about Officer Terry (which they should) but go no further. No mention of the Mexican government’s estimate that more than 200 Mexican citizens were killed. Whether you like it or not, if you want to get the press stirred up, 200 dead Mexicans with the US government as co-conspirator will get you a LOT MORE ink and TV time.

The same thugs who were behind the fast & furious gun running are all for gun control...

Is this for real? And the useful fools in society that voted for these creeps still don’t see hypocrisy...

I have yet to understand why Mexico won’t bring charges, and insist on dragging the US components to this into a Mexican court. There’s five or six folks who deserve to spend the rest of their lives in a Mexican prison.

“...and the useful fools in society that voted for these creeps still don’t see hypocrisy...”

There is no hypocrisy if the revolution is being furthered.

The “usefool” fools love the revolution and love the “hypocrisy” because the hypocrisy is part of the revolution.

Watch them as they denigrate the Christian faith, declare all conservatives to be stupid and insane and pit one group against another.

They’re loving it and will never see hypocrisy as hypocrisy if it brings “change” a little bit closer.

Long live the revolution comrade! /s/

IMHO
