    Just another Obama "Executive Order".

    "President Barack Obama invoked executive privilege on Wednesday for the first time since taking office to withhold certain Justice Department documents tied to the flawed "Operation Fast and Furious" gun-smuggling investigation from a House panel demanding them. Obama's 11th-hour decision, revealed in a letter from the Justice Department to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, did not derail the California Republican's plans to hold a vote declaring Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress."

    Lets see I guess you would call that a KING's X and a NO FAULT get out of jail free card.

    What a deal.

    Unfortunately..1) For a person that is "supposedly" a professor of Constitutional law, he appears to be somewhat lacking in his understanding of exactly how "executive privelege" works!
    2) The fact that the letter presented to Issa came from deputy director Cole in the DOJ does NOT make it so. It's a farce by any means....
    The Oversight committe has been on live feed now for some time and I found it interesting to listen to both side of the dais....
    Somebody wants this to all just go away, and quickly...after all it is about an election!
    If there is substantial evidence that the WH and the PTB that would require such an intervention by the WH, then you know where the problem lies....
    I sincerely believe there is a massive cover-up, the likes of which makes "watergate" pale in comparison! It all will eventually come out one way or another ( perhaps a book?) and then the AMERICAN people will see what has been going on behind closed doors for way too long!

    Even if there was really nothing to it - by invoking EP, the administration has now given everyone the idea that they are hiding something.
    Don't expect much in the way of mass media coverage.

    Back in the day, the media really was looking for Nixon's head - now the media is very busy covering barry's ass. I'll avoid any comment on the mass medias head placement..

    (Edit) Next question. Barry is so hot to trot on the Hispanic vote - just how many Mexicans have been murdered by gangsters using guns that 'walked away'? What do Hispanics think of that?
    You'll never know - the MSM will never ask the question...

    If nothing else it proves that Obama is right in the anti gunner's groups pocket.

    Enough for any NRA member to think we should throw the bum out.

    I am thinking you were having second thoughts about typing that. (y)
    You are right, and I won't disagree with your opinion...but, the republic is lost and the "American People" you mention must be the 3%'rs because everybody else is a cyborg clone zombie. Anyway, I didn't expect a corrupt government to throw its hands up and surrender by yelling, "You got us, fair and square!" :D

    After talking to a Kool-ade drinker for a couple of hours a few days back, and asking questions about things any informed person should know, I really got tired of "I don't know" and "I never heard that". Many questions got the "deer caught in the cars headlights" stare, and no answer at all. ....... So I really have to agree with you about the 97% cyborg zombie clone.
    This guys zombie mantra chant was; It's Bush's fault, Obama never had a chance, the evil republicans stopped him at every turn, I am going to vote for him again so he will get a chance.
