    Listen, I'm directly opposed to gun walking and all that **** that happened. You are just carelessly jumping to conclusions as to what happened and who did it in your lust for laying partisan blame. Preteding to give a **** about their deaths and murders just to advance a political agenda won't go over well in Karma land. So suck on that Karma.

    Bull****. The argument is to release the documents. As you jump that forward to "blame" would seem to indicate that you know Holder is obfuscating the Constitutional process.

    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.

    Not jumping to any conclusions till we see all the documents, why is the "transparent" Obama administration being so secretive? Bust out all the documents. I'm not pretending to care about the truth in this matter, you are.

    IMHO he was trying to prevent Holder from being charged with contempt, and offhand I don't see how the House was able to do it. Holder could not produce the documents because the president asserted executive privilege, which is above Holder's pay grade.

    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.

    No, it's not that limited.
    "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."

    "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're not jumping to conclusions? My arse you aren't. Not only are you convicting Holder and the Obama administration in this thread, you went even further to condemn those who don't agree with you as not giving a **** about the murders and then made that idiotic karma comment as some kind of conclusive sealer.

    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.
