President Obama, in an effort to give Eric Holder cover in the latter’s stonewalling of the congressional investigation of the Fast and Furious scandal, today declared that the information sought by Rep. Issa is protected under executive privilege - which implies that the president, himself, knows more about F&F than he has let on. Perhaps Holder knows how much the president knows, and that’s why the Attorney General hasn’t been compelled to join Obama’s many other former associates under the bus.
I’m currently reading Katie Pavlich’s book on Fast and Furious, and will be providing a review sometime next week, I hope. I’m only 20 or so pages into it, and my blood is already starting to boil.
Hey, maybe there’s a new campaign theme in here someplace. Obama: “I liberalized the deportation rules to prevent young Mexicans from being shipped back to their native country, where they would probably be killed by the guns that my attorney general sent there.” Winning!
Update: Chris Matthews apparently is not as interested in the deaths of Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexicans as he is in upholding the sanctity of Eric Holder’s pigmentation.
Update II: Babalu found a great Twitter reaction: “Holder's dog ate the documents. Obama ate the dog. Executive privilege.”
Update III: Bryan Preston has some interesting speculations.
Update IV: Contempt!
