    Democrats join Fast and Furious accountability efforts | The Daily Caller

    The willingness of democrats to lay down for this administration seems to be dwindling.

    Snip:
    Congressional Democrats are abandoning their party line en masse to support efforts to hold the administration accountable for Operation Fast and Furious.

    In another sign of bipartisanship on Fast and Furious accountability, 142 House Democrats backed an amendment from Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz Wednesday, which prevents the Department of Justice from using taxpayer funds to lie to Congress. Though 41 Democrats voted against it, the bipartisan support could be a sign that frustration over the administration stonewalling on Fast and Furious transcends party lines.

    Chaffetz pitched House Democrats in a feisty House floor speech before the vote to join him in demanding accountability. He argued that Attorney General Eric Holder’s failure to comply with the Fast and Furious congressional subpoena is anything but a partisan political fight. He said it’s an issue of separation of powers between the legislative and executive branches, and that all Americans “should be embarrassed by what’s happening in Fast and Furious.”

    So you agree that Holder should step down?

    Holder doesn't have time for FF.

    He's to busy sueing a county sheriff in Arizona.

    Using your brain to form your own thoughts is considered trash now. Good to know. Your corporate masters will be pleased to see you continue to refuse to use your brain for rational thought.
