What is your opinion about the Congressmen and Congresswomen who walked out on the Contempt vote yesterday? Is this acceptable behavior?

    Those scumbags turned their backs and walked out on a murdered American hero to protect a fellow power hungry, corrupt, criminal.

    Q
    No president has ever turned over their emails which show their deliberations on how they formulated their policies and considering the motive of this investigation why would the president be the first to do so? It makes no sense what so ever to accommodate Issa's request for them.

    I thought I'd made it quite clear that the Fast and Furious investigation conducted by Darrell Issa was proven to be a politically motivated attack on Eric Holder and by extension the president.

    I can't help you if you don't think that this is a reasonable persons perspective on why he shouldn't, I suspect your mind was already made up beforehand. I thought that maybe you might be reasonable after you read Fortune's investigation into Issa's false assertions that the ATF agents rejected but alas

    Sorry about the edit, I switched from Google Chrome to Firefox and am having trouble with its spellcheck, argh....

    You are so very lost and it was not about missed spelled words!

    Every thing in political in DC, and that's not what at stake here. Try to stay away from Dem's talking points.

    Executive privilege is for communication between president and WH staffs, not what is going on at the cabinet level, unless Obama lied again.

    Obama said it didn't not involved WH staff or him so executive privilege does not apply. No one is above the laws, and the documents will come out, after the election! Then, may be you'll agree Obama is in way over his head!

    Show me where excutive privilage does not extend to cabinet level communications, considering your bias I'm not inclined to believe you.

    It does if it involves WH or president!!!

    You made the statement about the limitations concerning executive privilege so its your responsibility to supply a credible source for confirmation, I'm not spinning my wheels to prove that you're wrong, that's not how it works sweetie, nice try

    Just wondering. If you or I walked off our jobs when the boss (in this case, We The People) expected you to do your job; would you still have a job 10 minutes later? Those people should be fired/impeached/recalled for dereliction of duty.

    As a Law Enforcement Officer, I take extreme offense to your's and the other members of the liberal cult's comments concerning the effort of both republican and democrat members of Congress who for 18 months (way before the election campaign), have been attempting to get answers as to who is responsible for the murder of Agent Brian Terry with guns supplied to the murders by our country.

    No, it isn't a witch hunt, waste of time or political stunt! The family of an American Hero deserves answers, and you liberals want to keep them from getting them.

    QUOTE FROM AGENT BRIAN KERRY'S FAMILY:
    "Attorney General Eric Holder's refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Operation Fast and Furious and President Obama's assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth.

    Maybe so but the American People do. It's a lot bigger than you think and thousands people have been killed, not only in Mexico, but in Columbia and the US also. This man has a lot of blood on his hands. And finally, Holder was good buddies with Dick Cheney's chief of staff.

    They are Segregationists for sure. MLK marched and dedicated his life so that Blacks could get more representation. It's time the the Black Community demands congressmen that will represent them. If they are going to walk out, they might as well not be there in the first place.

    They are not being paid to walk out in protest. They'er only protest should come in the form of a vote.
    "Once again, instead of trying to deflect the attention by this ridiculous walkout, why don't these career politicians instead go down the list of charges and refute them one by one."

    You are going in the wrong direction then if you need jobs, The Senate is controlled by DEMOCRATS and they have failed to do ANYTHING for the economy. With a Democratic controlled Senate, the Jobs bills Produced in the Republican contolled house just sit on Harry Reids desk. If you goinna play the blame game, at least get your facts right, starting with a POTUS who has no clue how free enterprise works.
    You wouldn't know what BS was and it's the thought that the Republicans are blocking anything in the Senate, OMG you been taking lessons from the blame POTUS
