This speaks to Obama's character. Remember, this was going to be the most transparent administration ever.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    And why don't got and look at the stark differences between the two. It was flawed and stopped as soon as it was realized the tracking EVEN WITH COOPERATION OF MEXICO LAW ENFORCEMENT (which FnF did not do) was impossible. So what the incompetent Holder do he doubles down and goes for broke with Obulls#!ts blessing in an effort to justify the long gun registration requirements along the border states. Then amazingly we had those stats about the 80% traceable guns crap that they dreamed up.

    Holder has demonstrated again and again that he's not up for this job. With all due respect, I don't his boss is either, but it's still early. Much may happen (vis-a-vis Syria and etc.).

    Meanwhile, at the least, this distracts focus from the economy.

    I think our dear leader needs to secure the services of Baghdad Bob as a press secretary at this juncture.

    Not indicated. Most importantly, Bush was not challenged further. Had he been, as Nixon had, then we might have found out.

    Point is, your example was irrelevent. No one is questioning that communications between a President, and/or his staff, (or Clinton and his Staff, as with the Bush case you noted) are privileged. They usually are privileged. But internal DoJ documents about the conduct of the DoJ and other agencies are not.

    Obusha handles everything just like his predecessor. This comes as no surprise to me. Just like the cops have the blue line and protect each other from answering foir their crimes, so it goes in Washington.

    What is wrong with you people, I am not a bush fan, I voted for him once, and thought he shat the bed on numerous occasions. Perhaps you can focus attention to the president at hand instead of the last moron who occupied the white house.

    For the love of god. /facepalm

    What you do in the privacy of your own home is none of my concern. I'm hearing about wide reciever. how many died from that operation?


    At the time, under the Bush administration Department of Justice (DOJ), no arrests or indictments were made. After President Barack Obama took office in 2009, the DOJ reviewed Wide Receiver in September 2009[26] and found that guns had been allowed into the hands of suspected gun traffickers. Indictments began in 2010, over three years after Wide Receiver concluded. As of October 4, 2011, nine people had been charged with making false statements in acquisition of firearms and illicit transfer, shipment or delivery of firearms.[18] As of November, charges against one defendant had been dropped; five of them had pled guilty, and one had been sentenced to one year and one day in prison. Two of them remained fugitives.[23]


    450 vs 2000, vs 0 deaths vs 200 + 1 border patrol agent. Survellience vs, failed loss of tracking..... If Bush was withholding information on it, I'd start the same thread. He's not president, so I am starting a thread on the dude intefering with the investigation, Obama.

    You hacks are something.,

    Game set match.

    You are just spinning lies now. Dismissed.

    Maybe. At this point having ANYTHING other than the economy being in the tank and a huge federal debt/defict as "the news" is actually good for Obama. The MSM will play this as mean old GOP morons in congress attacking the wornderful, economic wizard Obama, while refusing to grant Obama his vague wishes to "get the economy going" by allowing MORE massive, yet random, gov't borrowing and spending.
