Looks like obama is using executive privilege to hide the truth about "Fast and Furious"! Looks like the truth is that the knowledge goes all the way to the top. He wouldn't do it just to protect Holder. Where is all the transparency he promised when he took office?
Yeah, I know other presidents invoked presidential privilege, but to me that made them guilty of hiding the truth as well.
Personally who cares. Doesnt our Congress have more important things to worrry about? Like jobs and the economy? Oh, that's right, they want Obama to be a one term President at all costs. Even if it means people losing everything!
Who Cares? Loosing everything? Would you be referring to Brian Terry?
Why would Congress care about government illegally selling guns to individuals that would be used against government agents?
Are you saying that Brian Terry's family does not have a right to see Justice?
No, the family deserves answers. But does it take all of congress to figure it out? Why not a special group and the rest do their job! Instead the Republican Congress is "Using" Brian Terry's name as a political ploy! They need to get back to the real issues at hand! Employment and the economy. But why should they? God forbid they help the President and the American People!
"No, the family deserves answers. But does it take all of congress to figure it out?"
Apparently, in this case it does, Screaming. The murder suspect has lawyered up.
Would 40 members of Congress making up the House Oversight Committee satisfy your desire?
House Oversight Committee Votes 23-17 to Hold Attorney General Holder in Contempt of Congress
Wow what a surprise outcome. Along party lines. LOL...yeah, this satisfies my desire! Shows we are being represented by a bunch of kids! Who only vote for their own team. Democracy at it's finest! NOT...
I am with you. Presidential privilege makes the president look guilty as sin. Especially since in order to invoke that privilege he admits he or someone on his staff had knowledge of Fast and Furious. Come on, nobody got killed because of Watergate and at least one federal agent was in F&F.
You do realize you're talking about politicians, right? They all hide stuff. They all lie to suit their position.
President and all other government officials on a Federal level should be in prison for not doing what is in the best interest of this Nation.
They are hiding the fact that 'fast and furious' was a program to give guns to their favorite drug gang.
Bush set up the "Fast and Furious" program and Holder shut it down. More right wing lies are not going to make that go away. Also, this makes the tea party look as stupid as they have always looked.
They should have let this one go a year ago.
They are hiding Obama's Kenyan birth certificate.
And, Obama has a problem blaming Bush? Would it not be a simple action to provide the evidence? Wouldn't a constitutional scholar know this?
Come on, Xenonlit. Perhaps you didn't know AG Eric Holder has retracted his previous remarks stating Fast & Furious was Bush's fault.

You might want to get your news from a different source than the Democrat Hack, Sheila Jackson Lee.
"Our son lost his life protecting this nation, and it is very disappointing that we are now faced with an administration that seems more concerned with protecting themselves rather than revealing the truth behind Operation Fast and Furious," they said.

Anyone want to post for perpetuity that Mr. Terry's family does not deserve answers?

Brian Terry: Semper Fidelis & Honor First
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0jTJq_V … r_embedded
The Border Patrol station in Bisbee, Ariz., will be renamed to honor the memory of agent Brian Terry who died December 15, 2010 after being shot in the line of duty. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, introduced the bill in the House of Representatives July 27.
I just read that the US border patrol union is calling for Holder to resign.

The Independent report has been issued and its finding has vindicated AG Holder in the "Fast and Furious" operation. As he has insisted from the beginning of the highly partisan House committee investigation, AG Holder had no knowledge of this rouge operation and shut it down once he...

In the wake of the ill-conceived Fast & Furious program, the death of a border agent Brian Terry, and hundreds, maybe thousands, of Mexicans being killed by the drug cartels using these guns, does Obama taking executive privilege on Fast & Furious suggest a cover up to you?In your opinion,...

How can PRES get away with doubling down his bypasses of Congress and making own decisions?Are these actions impeachable?

Should a president be impeached for lying?Barack Obama lied to get his (un)Affordable Health Care Act passed. Why is no one in uproar over this? If this was Bush the dummycrats and (un)liberals would be asking for his head.

Good morning,Democrats and Republicans agree -- the health care status quo isn't working for the American people.Health insurance is growing more and more expensive by the day. Too many of us can't afford it -- not middle class families, not businesses, not the Federal Government. Insurance...

Maybe the word hate is a little strong. So why do people dislike President Obama and the way he is running the country? Are you an Obama fan? Yes, no, what is your opinion of Obama and his policies?
