What Took So Long?!?
Why did "Fast'n'Furious" take this long to gain traction with the national pamphleteers; with the American voter?!? I'll tell ya why: Rep Darrell Issa (R,Ca-49) finally became chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee for the 112th Congress!! During the prior numbered congress, Rep Edolphus Towns (d, NY-11) held the chairmanship of this important committee. Mr Towns had his own (lack of) ethics kerfuffles while holding the chairmanship: Mr Towns delayed investigating Countrywide Financial's VIP loan policies by refusing to subpeona Bank of America's financial records. Mr Towns' refusal ended when information confirmed he had--unethically--received two mortgages from Countrywide!!
The crux of the matter is two-fold: First is 'General' holder's lying to Congress; Second is "Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist's" complete lack of leadership on this issue; the lack of which constitutes 'an impeachable offense.' Both instances abide the owe-bamacRATic party philosophy that 'Ignorance is Power!'
Documentation has come to light that confirms 'General' holder was informed of "Fast'n'Furious" in July, 2010; after which, holder received frequent memos on the progress of this blatantly illegal 'bait'n'switch' tactic These documents clearly refute the holder lie to The Judiciary Committee! That lie being:
"I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard of "Fast and Furious" for the first time over the past few weeks."
The "General's" lie occurred during testimony on May 3, 2011, nearly a year after the documents show he knew of the operation to alter the provisions of the Second Amendment!! OK--at least for the conservatives among us--we've confirmed that the miscreant that is eric holder, is a liar!
How does "Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist" fit into this whole kerfuffle?!? Before we can answer that question, President Harry Truman (33rd) must be considered. That consideration amounts to a small sign on President Truman's desk in the Oval Office: "The Buck Stops Here!" Until the current ruler, nearly every president held that axiom to be the 'linchpin' of their administration. Not so, owe-bama!!
"Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist" clearly is not a leader; displays not even a modicum of leadership; will not lead in any instance!! His primary focus--since the moment of his oath-of-office--has been primarily the destruction of America as we know her; closely followed by his burning desire for re-election.
The nation's chief executive is hired primarily for his leadership qualities, closely followed by his/her adherence to the provisions of the United States Constitution. While there have been varying levels of success in the past, this ruler has displayed absolutely no leadership during his only term as president!!
"Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist" is a prime candidate for impeachment! Again, since the moment of his oath-of-office, this incompetent boob has taken agregious 'liberties-with-the-truth (read: blatant lies!)' at every turn. In the 'Lying Clown Prince' problem, I lay the correction directly at the feet of the House of Representatives which has the responsibility to initiate impeachment proceedings. With the advent of the 112th Congress comes the conservative majority necessary to bring forth said proceedings. Will they?!? Most probably not; all are career politicians! The congressional members' careers are paramount; they live for the power of the office, the perquisites--both legal and illegal--of membership in the ruling class.
One can only hope;
We shall see what we shall see!!
