I was so happy that President Obama poked his finger in the eye of that right-wing jerk Darrell Issa’s political witch hunt against the Black AG by invoking Executive Privilege… that bigoted tea-bagging bastard. Fast and Furious was a operation started during the Bush Administration… the right has bitten off more than they can chew on this one; they have no end game and this will backfire big time if they go forward with this frivolous ‘Contempt of congress’ vote.

Interesting, claiming Ex. Privilege about something that Obama has repeatedly said he knows nothing about! Hmmm, what are they really trying to cover up? If it was really (yeah right) just the continuation of Bush's gun program, why are they holding back information about it? Oh, right, because it wasn't the same program. Bush's program tracked all the guns, and there were fewer than 20 total, and none even got over the border. Holder/Obama little plan, to discredit gun sales and lead to tougher gun control laws, sent over 2000 guns over the border with no tracking at all. Perhaps that little bit of e-mail conversation is what they are trying to cover up. They seem to care not at all that a man was killed. And while Mr. Holder "says" lots of things, most are turning out to be untrue. He DID know about F & F, Mr. Mukasey actually DIDN'T know about the supposed Bush program. What else has he been less than truthful about? Will the MSM finally get a grip and start reporting about this? Or will they continue the cover-up started by this administration?

Whatcha' hiding there Mr. Prez? Transparent administration again, as promised? Guess you should hide documents since you have a crook and liar for an Attorney General. Oh, but what can one expect from him when his president thinks the constitution doesn't apply to him?

This is the most "in your face" lawless administration ever since we began! Yes, worse than Nixon...et al.

Nope, wrong again. Different program entirely, even Mr. Holder has had to retract that little bit of misinformation. Don't you ever wonder, with all the back tracking this administration has to do, just how much of what you believe is actually false intentionally given misinformation? Does the administration actually think it's base is so stupid that they will never, ever, fact check? Oh, yeah, I guess they do. LOL Keep drinkin' the koolade.

And your buddy liar Eric Holder and this administration quickly retracted what Holder said under oath...that Mukasey (Bush team) knew about fast & furious. And your other buddy Obama gave him executive priviledge so he doesn't have to lie. It's all a huge coverup and they're crooked as snakes. This president and his attorney general should be impeached. Or jailed.

Finally, Obama is figting back them racist GOP bullies!

That's right; they are just trying to demean your race as less than human. Kick'em in the teeth; next time they'll think twice before putting their boots up your behind....

. Folks, this is a classic Fishing Expedition by supremacist crooks

. GOP crooks are exercising their typical Racial Profiling routine toward the Negro president and his administration

. If GOP supremacists really want a true investigation, they should bring the architect of that program (Michael Mukasey under Bush/Cheney) back in front of Congress to testify

. Obama is mad and refuses to take it anymore!

Sorry to have to slap you around with some facts... BUT...

Issa Has No Case: Issa’s uncovered no evidence showing Holder bears any blame for the botched operations begun under George W. Bush, even though the Justice Department turned over thousands of pages of documents

Law Enforcement Rejects Issa’s Witchhunt: Issa’s efforts to embarrass Holder are an unnecessary distraction that hinders the Department of Justice’s ability to do its real job.

Even Top Republicans Think Issa Goes Too Far: After Issa leaked his plans to pursue contempt charges to the media, the House Republican leadership pressured him to back off. Indeed, even House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) has indicated that Issa is overreaching.

Issa said he was going to harrass Obama's administration; he's doing it as promised...

"Newly-appointed Chairman of the Reform and Oversight Committee Darrell Issa has been causing commotion about using his subpoena power to investigate corruption in the White House, calling the Obama administration “one of the most corrupt administrations in history” and promising a deluge of investigations." http://www.mediaite.com/tv/rep-darrell-issa-c...

Using Executive Privilege by defintion proves the President
was involved in this horrific betrayal of the public trust.
How sad for so many who trusted Obama enough to trust him with the power of Office. My heart goes out to the parents of the dead Border Patrol Agent. Wonder if Obama ever did anything to console them. Probably not.

Transparency Chicago Style .( wink..wink...nod...nod...chuck le..chuckle)

Hey folks the felon freer Eric " The Red " Holder and the orphans at the ATF cooked up a scheme to flood the border areas with American purchased semi-auto rifles( assault rifles to LEFTIES ) to build a case againist the 2nd. Amendment.

This " Act of Transparency " by the Chicagoian just adds fuel to the real reason behind the conspiracy.

The felon freer of Marc Rich scores another for the LEFTYITES.

The degree of Transparency of this LEFTY regime ranks up there with Nixon's shamefull behavior.

Executive Privilege would apply only to communications, directives, meetings, memos, etc. specifically between the President and his Cabinet members, or other agencies, those communications directly related to involvement of the President in matters investigated by Congress. Executive Privilege would not apply to communications and directives between one government agency and another, which the subpoenaed documents are. Thus, such an Executive claim is not only unconstitutional, but asserts the incredible wrongness, that an Attorney General in charge of the Justice Department can set the guidelines of investigation by Congress without the slightest legal foundation... this after having his own investigators supply Congress with a false letter and him taking eight more months to admit it was false.

The absurd proposition that the Justice Department can tell Congress who, what, when and where they can investigate an egregious abuse of power resulting in the death of a US agent and hundreds of Mexicans, clearly insults the American people.
