    That Obama guy pulled a cheat o n his republican haters. They whined that his use of executive privilege is something only Obama has used to cover questionable policies and actions under the protection given to the executive branch to do secretive things for the benefit of the US. Of course we all know that the republicons will never admit that their patriotic leaders every used a tactic as problematic as executive privelege to cover up their illegal activities, but until texas can rewrite the history boos after Romney eliminates the department of education to save us all from things lie knowledge and intelligence we can see some past examples and where Obama learned this little trick from.

    So we have people like Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Bush Jr. to than for this rather well used presidential power that dates back to george washington.

    So it would be nice if all the republicans who were silent when their heroes did this would shut the fuck up.

    Do you have a link where anyone said it's never been used before?

    And would you kindly do some side by side comparisons.

    cuz obama swooped in after a year to save Holders ass, not the countries.


    A family deserves justice, not party politics.

    Oh so you mean declaring it in defense of imaginary evidence that caused an invasion of sovereign nations and the killings of thousands of innocent foreigners by US military is somehow worse than the selling of arms to problem people like reagan did with the contras? Seriously, do you really want us putting up a real comparison to the underhanded illegal things done by the nixon, reagan, and both bush admins in comparison to Obama?

    Can you shut the fuck up now.

    SOOOOO.... Obama can usurp the Congress by using an executive Order to pass the "Dream Act" in order to pander to hispanics in this election year, and now use Executive Privilege in order to save the AG Holder from a contempt charge and cover up any silly little papers that might connect him to Fast and Furious directly....and this isn't evil?

    Isn't Obama supposed to be in charge of the most transparent administration in history? Usually transparent leaders don't hide documents suppeoned by the Congress or legislative bodies. But you are right, there are OTHER Evil Presidents like Nixon who tried to cover up there crimes,... so when does Obama, or even Holder resign?

    Just as evil as your standard president, but not quite as evil as the Bush family and some congressional families.

    obama played nice for a year. In other words, he knew a crime was committed but played dumb hoping Holder could get himself out of it.

    and congress gave Bush the go ahead to attack Iraq

    I did not say so, but presidents have always chosen when and where to put the focus of law enforcement, and that is all Obama is doing. There is an overwhelming disparity on how laws are enforced in america against blacks, and that would certainly be the product of the racist republican reds doing the exact same thing Obama is doing in selective enforcement. Selective enforcement is also a necessity when you continue to cut the funding of enforcement agencies like Romney is planning on doing. When Romney gets into office he says he will cut law enforcement. Since there is an admitted gap between crimes committed and what they have the resources to fight Romney will have to do the exact same sort of thing because it is impossible for him to enforce all the rules on no budget so please do not say Romney will be different. Or as I like to put it STFU.
    That was one of his claims, but if you want a transparent candidate you certainly are not going to vote for a person like Romney who has never claimed to want to be transparent, and has actively hidden his own financial records., Obama is far more transparent than his competition, but you are correct that is not saying much.
