    I think that's a bit dramatic, personally.

    The Government had a duty by law to stop the gunwalking across the border. They did NOT, as a result there are 21 Dead Mexican citizens and 2 Dead American Law Enforcement Agents. How anyone can marginalize that is beyond me. They must be held accountable.

    Who exactly is they? The prosicuters who refused to allow ATF to make arrests? Or the Black cats in office?

    About the sorry assed poll I don't know how to creat (in post #1), any vote or comment?
    Some things should be a secret eh? That type of thinking leads open societies to become closed. Nice of you to use the Seal Team 6 reference. We should have killed Osama bin Laden when we had the chance many years ago. We probably should have informed Pakistan in some sort of way that we were going to go and get him. Instead, we decided to invade a sovereign nation which ended up having one of our covert Black Hawks crash land. It was good that we got him, but the way we went about it was not right. We cannot continue to think that we can go into any country we want and capture anyone. That is dangerous thinking and it will endanger our National Security more then protect it.

    As for your original questions. Nobody can be the new Joseph McCarthy. McCarthy labeled every supposed enemy of his as communist. He was delusional paranoid that spread nothing but propaganda. All Eric Holder needs to do (if he is innocent as he claims) is release the document. End of story. If you have nothing to fear then why are you hiding things?

    Re: Is Rep. Darrel Issa the new Joe McCarty?

    Joe spent a great deal of time developing his reputation and becoming one of the main the focuses of American politics, with liberals and fellow-travelers carrying his importance after his fall from the spotlight and death. You're talking about Issa in a similar fashion way too soon, where he has far less attention at this moment. I can only conclude that you are overreaching in order to taint Issa in a method similar to what many did by constantly referring to Chamberlin and appeasement.

    It's painfully obvious that Issa is just out to get Obama. He should at the very least be removed from his chairmanship.
    "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
