    President Obama Falsely Claims Fast and Furious Program "Begun Under the Previous Adm

    President Obama Falsely Claims Fast and FuriousProgram "Begun Under the Previous Administration"
    By Jake Tapper | ABC OTUS News – 9//21/2012

    In actuality, the Fast and Furious program was started in October 2009,nine months into the Obama presidency.

    But this was not entirely an exoneration of the Justice Department run byMr. Holder. "We found it troubling that a case of this magnitude, and onethat affected Mexico so significantly was not directly briefed to the AttorneyGeneral," the report stated.

    A.G. Holder didn't know such a big operation which stired Mexico so much and Obama even can't recognize the time when he defends his A.G.. How could they manage their department and the country effectively?

    Oh dear God... not again.

    Wider Receiver -> a gun running programs started by Bush that reached its peak and its subsequent end in 2007, 2008. It was a program done in collaboration with the Mexican government for obvious reasons... you were doing things on their turf.

    Fast and Furious -> a gun running program on a much larger scale started by on Obama's watch... but to be honest, it is not his direct fault for the start of the program. It is AG Hoders' fault for being a stupid incompetent lazy bastard who can't be bothered with briefings and reading memos. The main 4 faults, aside from the failure ofc, are as follows:

    a) the fact that it wasn't done in conjucture with the Mexican Government and that because of this, hundreds, if not thousands, of mexicans are dead because of these weapons.
    b) the fact that Holder still has a job... let alone his freedom. This is the biggest fault there is with the program.
    c) the bullsh*t of one year of congressional hearings on Holder and the DOJ... and the launch of an internal investigation which ended up in delivering a scape-goat because Obama decided to invoke executive privilege to protect his pet Holder.
    d) that the people responsible for implementing this didn't bloody do their homework and the operation failed. instead of learning from the mistakes of the past... they decided to repeat them and even, accentuate them so that they would be the #1 morons.

    Actually, one bled into the other.

    However, neither president can be blamed IMHO.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You mean the successful gunwalking operation where they put RF transmitters on all the guns, actually followed them, worked with Mexican government side by side working the Op and arrests made?

    Actually they stopped the operation in 2007 because their Mexican counterparts were not doing their job.

    Regardless, it is not the same operation.

    Just another example of blame Bush. Obviously the majority of people are dumb enough to believe it.
