    On WHAT HONEST basis does the Obama Administration make the CLAIM of Executive Privilege over the Fast and Furious papers, notes and e-mails?

    I don't think they HAVE any HONEST basis to invoke Executive Privilege.

    Why won't the President 'splain his action, in detail?

    Isn't it "curious" how little the national media seems interested in pressing him on it?

    Maybe they are afraid of appearing "rude?"

    Obamination is flat out lying to the American public when he claimed he knew nothing about this program, but now uses his office to stop information being leaked to Congress under the guise that his office was involved thus can prevent information being leaked.

    Insane....

    He is clearly covering something up here.

    It seems most likely (to me) that he is trying to prevent further harm to his AG.

    But even so, he's not getting pressed AT ALL on the alleged "basis" for his invocation of Executive Privilege.

    And it quite clear that he has no valid basis to make the claim.

    Why does he get a free ride on this?

    Nobody got killed because of Watergate.

    Odd that Watergate had the media aggressively doing investigative reporting.

    Yep and the one reporter who dared asking him knew that would be his one and only chance to ask Obama.

    He took no questions and walked out.... I too want to know what national security secrets are so important that he has to hide behind EP in this situation.

    Isn't your damn signature line a little too large? Why don't you have to follow the rulez?

    Obviously the Obama is covering something up. He's thrown people under the bus before, including his own family, so I can't see him having any issue with doing it to Holder to save his own ass.

    I think that's the bottom line: he's got something to hide and he's trying to save his own ass. Of course, after the election, he'll have more flexibility.
