UPDATE: Via RightScoop – BOMBSHELL: Proof Obama and Holder knew about gun walking in 2009
Dear Readers: I assert that Obama knew all about the Fast & Furious program that placed American weapons in Mexican drug-dealer hands, courtesy of a corrupt Justice Department that wanted to ensure a progressive leftist meme was realized. Today’s invocation of “Executive Privilege” is all the proof I personally need that Obama’s fingerprints are all over this colossal policy failure that lead to death of an American Border Patrol agent and the street executions of scores of Mexican citizens.
Some Obama supporters went directly to the “Blame Bush” strategy. That meme has exploded, as Attorney General Eric Holder had to retract that Bush’s Attorney General knew about the program.Interestingly, a video shows Obama talking about the program BEFORE holder said he knew about it — which proves my case it was instituted under Obama’s direction.
Given this stunt, Legal Insurrection’s Professor Jacobson was quick to give some kudos to Team GOP: Darrell Issa and his Republican committee members deserve a medal. Keep pushing.
Color me skeptical that Boehner and some of the other GOP elites are not unhappy that Obama did this. I am given to understand that Boehner was throwing a bunch of roadblocks to Issa’s contempt action — only to change his mind after a deluge of phone calls from citizen activists. I will applaud the GOP only when Holder is convicted of contempt of Congress. At that point, they will merit some respect. (Update, OK – so I will give them some respect).
As Tammy Bruce notes: You know its bad when Obama uses the economy as a distraction!
My final proof to confirm my assertion: As Hillaryis44 notes: Everything Obama touches turns to shit. Fast & Furious sure did. Can’t wait to hear the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare, which is due any day now!
