Fast and Furious

Asked about the Fast and Furious program at the Univision forum on Thursday, President Obama falsely claimed that the program began under President George W. Bush.

"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.

  5. Holder and Obama are off the hook for now and in all likelyhood will never have to pay the piper. Those lower down the food chain will take the fall----seems that's always the case.

  6. Dear Sandee, I think it is so immature to keep blaming someone else. It is time to take responsibility for a job the no one forced him to apply for. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  7. He was wrong and he was right, Sandee. Fast and Furious was one of several "gunwalking" sting operations which ran between 2006 and 2011.

    Fast and Furious was one of these that went wrong, terribly wrong. And yes, this one started on Obama's watch but several had already been completed under Bush's watch, starting in 2006,

    Wikipedia has a pretty good history of these 'gun walking' exercises.

  10. Have you seen 2016? Another one that's just coming out is Occupy Unmasked that Andrew Breitbart was working on before he died.

    2016 can be seen at http://townhall.com/tipsheet (for the time being)!

    This president doesn't know what the meaning of the word truth , and must be defeated!
