But sometimes Obama cronyism is murderous: Eric Holder, a man unfit to be attorney general of the United States, continues to stonewall the “Fast and Furious” investigation into taxpayer-funded government gun-running to Mexican drug cartels.
It is alleged that the administration chose to facilitate the sale of American weapons to crime kingpins south of the border in order to support a case for gun control north of the border. Evidence keeps piling up:
The other day, a letter emerged from ATF supervisor David Voth authorizing Special Agent John Dodson to buy Draco pistols to sell directly to known criminals. Over 200 Mexicans are believed to have been killed by “Fast and Furious” weapons — that is to say, they were killed by a U.S. government program.
Doesn’t the New York Times care about dead Mexicans? Doesn’t Newsweek or CBS News? Isn’t Obamaism with a body-count sufficiently eye-catching even for the U.S. press? Or, three years in, are the enablers of Obama still so cynical that they accept it as a necessary price to pay for “change you can believe in”? You can’t make a hopenchange omelette without breaking a couple hundred Mexican eggs? Mark Steyn
I still recall the comment from Mrs. Brady (wife of James Brady, wounded in the Reagan assassination attempt) after she met with Obama months ago: to paraphrase her, she said the Obama told her the regime was working on gun control but it was slow going and “under the radar.” What more indictment of Obama and Holder does there need to be?

This entire scam was designed to shred 2nd Amendment rights. In fact, Obama’s entire agenda, as evidenced by his administration’s every initiative since Day One, has been to shred the Bill of Rights & the rest of the U.S. Constitution.

Progressives have no time for anyone but themselves. The Mexicans? they are simply a part of the so called “masses”. Expendable in service to their cause. The cause this time to get rid of the 2nd Amendment. It backfired this time. Next time? Maybe not so lucky.

This is but one of the primary reasons to vote Obama out. Justice will never be served until then. The whole administration must be investigated and brought up on charges.

I understand that yesterday, Darrel Issa called for a “Special Prosecutor” to investigate Holder. But, how can we trust the Attorney General to appoint a truly independent prosecutor to investigate himself? With this Congress there is little hope of impeachment. I don’t see a happy ending to this tragedy.
