    Even John Stewart is getting it wrong saying that Obama "inherited" this program from the Bush years.

    Its absolutely not true.

    First there was GunRunner in 2005, then Wide Reciever in 2007, then NOTHING until 2009 when fast and Furious started up.

    However, the fact that its the EXACT same tactic as the Bush Era programs SHOULD put an end to the nonsense taht this was all about taking away 2nd amendment rights. If that lie were true, then Bush was doing the same thing...was he trying to grab our guns? Nope. And neither is Obama.

    Plenty of REALLY BAD SHIT in this debacle to slam Obama for...Gun grabbing is NOT one of them.

    Sorry but thats what I like to deal with...the truth. I support Obama in the next election but Im not afraid to point out when he fucked up...which Fast and Furious clearly is...a fuck up. A major one. That may even cost him the election.

    Its certainly gotten the conversation away from the previous topics of Vulture Capitalism and Voter suppression, hasnt it?

    Maybe next week, Romney will kick a baby. Not likely, but I can hope lol.

    If you listen carefully, you will note that there was NO exact same tactic.

    Care to review and explain why that is?

    And after he states they are two separate things. he also retracts his statement that Bush knew about F&F.

    Holder retracts claim Bush team knew about Fast and Furious

    The Spew Czar just yesterday was saying that the two programs were essentially the same. Yet, here is the AG, saying that the two cannot be equated with one another.

    In fact, that is true and can be seen by the very direct question that Holder had to answer on how the two programs differed so fundamentally as to be separate operations. Oh, there is Holders words again. Separate Operations....

    There are a few people that really need to face some perjury charges.

    You'd think that they'd all get together and find out what they have said in the past and make sure that their stories match the video and audio record of their testimony.
