    Shady is putting it lightly in my view. No one investigating this believed that Obama had anything to do with it on a level that suggests that Obama was "in the loop" per se. But now? EP has everything to do with the President being in the loop, so that is another lie that Holder told over, and over.

    It is a racial matter.

    Holder and the Obama administration clearly have no respect for the lives of those living south of the border.

    House holds Holder in contempt - CNN.com

    They spent tax payer dollars to do a little political theater kabuki for the benefit of the far-right base?

    How do you see that as a positive?

    I would like to see them do what they're paid to do and not put on meaningless performances.

    Later in the summer, Teatards mean to waste more of your money pretending to 'repeal' ACA.

    You mean Bush and his AG, right?


    The program was started under them.

    Fast and Furious is all Obama's. "Wide Receiver" was ended by the Bush administration when it was discovered that the gps devices on the weapons were compromised.

    The president does not have to be in the loop for the privelege to apply. Just ask George Bush.
    "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."

    You mean like Conyers holding his little show in the senate office broom closet during the Bush years? Give me a break.

    Wrong. As usual.

    Right, trying to stop the flow of guns to the cartels, who are responsible for 50,000 Mexican deaths, is a clear sign of contempt for life south of the border.

    Or perhaps the people who are really showing contempt for life are the people who are using those who are trying to stop the gun smugglers as political pawns?

    Are you kidding here? They didn't try to stop anything, they let them go!
