Suck on this. Releasing the documents is not a political agenda. Its just getting to the truth uber-lib.
God help us.

It was right to find Holder in contempt, because he was. It's also very very shady for Obama to try and exert executive privilege to try and cover up or stop an investigation of something like the Fast and Furious failure. The guy than ran on "transparency" is now trying to prevent investigation into a legitimate case.

"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." - John Adams
I'd be interested to hear a constitutional lawyer explain how the House was able to charge Holder with contempt for not providing documents that the president refused to release.
"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
-- Adam Smith
"In the United States government, executive privilege is the power claimed by the President of the United States and other members of the executive branch to resist certain subpoenas and other interventions by the legislative and judicial branches of government. "
Yeah, it is. Can you find a single place (other than the current administration) where it is defined as the power of the executive branch to hind the 'confidential communications' of someone NOT in the executive branch?
You've long jumped off the jumping to conclusions bridge.
So it was bring your child to work day at the Capitol. It "boggles the mind" just how incredibly petty and out of touch the Cons really are.... children. Its hard to believe these yahoos get paid $165,200 per year when the quality of their work is more like $10 per week]
In spite of this silliness, it was still a good day at 1600 Pennsylvania.
