"I think it's important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration," the president said. "When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned a inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued, confirming that in fact Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and the people who did initiate this were held accountable."In actuality, the Fast and Furious program was started in October 2009, nine months into the Obama presidency.
This is why I have no respect for Obama. He's a bold faced liar, and I'm sick to death of him still blaming Bush for everything. Man-up will you. What happened to the buck stops here? Now the underlings pay the price for their failures.
I feel better now.
