Newly obtained emails show that the White House was better informed about Operation Fast and Furious than was previously known. The administration claims the emails don’t prove anyone in the White House was aware of the covert “investigative tactics” of the operation: “Yeah, we thought those guns were gonna be used by Mexican Civil War re-enactors!”

The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” said “Just as every cop is a criminal…” They must’ve foreseen the Holder DOJ.

Fast and Furious was designed by the filthy liberals to provide them the excuse they need to violate our civil rights and the second amendment.
This is the lengths the liberals are willing to stoop to in order to disarm lawful Americans.

Paden: “This is the lengths the liberals are willing to stoop to in order to disarm lawful Americans.”

Nah, honestly don’t believe that was the underlying motive. There were just looney Liberals at the top of a chain who don’t have a clue how to run a “black op” correctly. Somebody in the trenches wrote a good mission statement for an operation, it got kicked upstairs and management screwed it up. Pretty sure a bunch of trained “ops” people- guys and girls who really know what they’re doing in the field are gonna’ take the fall for this. Field peeps have to have confidence that someone back home knows what’s going on, and that pieces are being moved correctly. Fast and furious was played-out fast and loose and that critical oversight obviously didn’t happen.

I could be dead wrong, but don’t look for anyone with “horsepower” to go down on this any time soon. The only thing you’ll see “fast and furious” will be the “CYA” in Washington.

You are probably right that no-one with horsepower will fall but if Issa and his committee keep shining a light on F&F during the election cycle it will keep the admnistration off message and forced to explain itself. It could become Obama’s Desert One.

Any other president, I might agree. But this motherffkkrr is evil, and he is on record stating his intent to “go under the radar” to ban guns.

He identified the three White House officials who were briefed as Kevin M. O’Reilly, director of North American Affairs for the White House national security staff; Dan Restrepo, the president’s senior Latin American advisor; and Greg Gatjanis, a White House national security official.

“The emails were not forwarded beyond them, and we are not aware of any [additional] briefings related to that email chain,” the official said.

We call this “plausible deniability.”

Ok, you got me started (lol), had to look up more quotes.
Another one from AE:
“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”
-Albert Einstein
Anther good one.
“Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.”
-Anonymous
And my favorite. I apply it to all the branches of government.
“Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.”

Issa and Grassley needs to be on TV every weekend stating that this administration is worse than that of Richard Nixon. It’s time to use every outlet to get the heat turned up on “the most transparent” administration and covict every last damn one of them, barry included.

The Fast and Furious was being used to undermine the US Constitution and create chaos that could be traced to the American Gun Dealers and Owners. Now US Border Agents are dead, 1000s of Mexicans and Holder along with the DoJ are stone walling to protect barry.

President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.
“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.” (25 May 2011)

That long skinny POS. They should make a bull whip out of him and put it in the Smithsonian. This falls even deeper toward hell than anything Nixon ever did in my books. I wished the guilty would go to prison for a very long time but–it’s Washington–so they’ll cover up everything they can. And what evidence they do find will all be just a ‘misunderstanding’. Our 2nd ammendment needs to be closely guarded no matter what.

likliz: “They should make a bull whip out of him and put it in the Smithsonian.”

While I can appreciate your strong desire to protect our Constitution, your use of inflammatory rhetoric runs counter to the very foundation of our nation and our ethics. All men (and women) are created equal, and it would do you well to remember that when considering your writings.

We do not lynch, no more dunking stools, pillories, tar and featherings, riding out on rails or suggestions as to the making of a man into a bullwhip.

Expose and dispose back into obscurity, yes.

To suggest in even the most benign of terms a return to a past which includes any form of unfair treatment, or the threat of physical harm is totally counter-productive to the cause of freedom and presents to us, as well as our adversaries, a quite obhorrent image of you as an individual.

I will not allow myself or others to be included as compliant with that negative image you project in any form or manner.

Maybe you should take an oxy and mellow out. I got you all fired up. Oh well. NOOO, I’m not going to dispose back into obscurity. Too bad. I’m here for the getting so mellow out and GET OVER IT.

Right.

We wonder where a Congressman gets the nerve or the evidence to inflame his base with an unfounded comment like “hangin’ from a tree.”

Any ideas?
