"Fast and Furious has been one of the number one complaints we get in our office and why no one has been held accountable."

No doubt these complaints come from well infromed citizens.

Also, "one of the number one complaints" implies that there are multiple #1 complaints.  Or in other words, "look at me, I'm an attention whore."

Probably the same well informed citizens who say that we'll have a civil war in 5 years, that US Money is no better than monopoly money, Congress exempted itself from Obamacare had to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges but got a sweet health plan none of us are allowed to purchase, and the DHS is stocking up on weapons and ammo to murder US Constitution-lubbin, simple farmers. These well-informed citizens are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons.

The "Fast and Furious" incident does warrant investigation. Unfortunately, while the more likely explanation for the "scandal" is simple incompetence, the Republican party has willfully disregarded any consideration of such a cause in favor of attempting to find "evidence" of willful criminal behaviour that probably did not occur, so as to validate a thus-far unfounded conspiracy theory stating that Mexican criminal organizations were intentionally supplied by the United States government as part of a means of building support for new gun bans. As a consequence, investigations into the matter will likely be counterproductive; because evidence of willful acts is likely nonexistent, the investigation will appear to be a "witch hunt" and disregarded by rational observers while the more likely extant evidence of unintentional incompetence will be overlooked and those responsible will escape any consequence.

Curious as to why willfully arming Mexican criminal organizations is seen as bad, but willfully arming Al-Qaeda in Syria is not bad? And if it's not bad to arm Al-Qaeda in Syria, then why is it bad to arm Mexican criminal organizations?

When the Phoenix regional office of the ATF continues something they'd started back in the Bush days into the Obama administration without telling the DOJ about gunwalking - DOJ wasn't even aware until mid-2010, according to internal documents - it isn't the Attorney General who should be fired.

If they can prove that Holder broke the law or lied under oath, then by all means, start the impeachment.

You just keep fighting the good fight! This is DEFINITELY the way to make sure the GOP has a future. And no matter what the polls say, no matter what the analysts say, no matter how many elections are lost just keep on pushing ever rightward! Victory is just a continual series of defeats away!

The plan they developed was permitted under ATF rules, had the legal backing of U.S. Attorney Dennis K. Burke in Phoenix, and had been approved and funded by a task force at the Justice Department, ATF's parent agency.


And if it was just an low level issue, Holder shouldn't have lied about it in front of Congress nor should those who perpetuated the operation have been given a slap on the wrist. Additionally, Obama claimed executive privileges over all documents that could prove Holder's involvement.

To say the DoJ knew nothing isn't factually supported.

The GOP and the Democrats will always have a future in this country, as we have always had a two party system to foster the idea that the people have a choice. It boggles my mind that we don't have a choice, but it also boggles my mind that we ever have a 50-50 split on any idea. I know that numbers are arbitrary, but those arbitrary numbers mean something to us, so I guess it a fact, but how we ever get to 50-50 on anything....

60-40 and 40-60 feel the same when considering the arbitrary nature of numbers.

Eric Holder sucks for overseeing the War on Drugs the same as all the rest of them suck who say that a person who can serve in the military can't have an alcoholic drink. And they all suck for saying that a person who can drive can't vote, just as much as those who suck that say that women are being obscene when they show their breasts in public but not when a man does it. They all suck just as much that have created aggravating charges to be piled on to already heinous crimes based on the thoughts of the perpetrators.

I don't know who is specifically responsible for all those realities, but I imagine that it is a little bit, or a lot, of both parties and it all sucks.

You do realize that Ashcroft actually wouldn't signoff on most the crap they did?  It wasn't till he went in for an operation that they got one of his underlings to rubber stamp everything.  The scumbag you're thinking of is Gonzales

Eric Holder should be impeached and sent to a Mexican prison for the rest of his life over the HSBC agreement

We may rename them from the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans moving on to the Jacksonian Democrats and the Whigs to finally result in the Democrats and the Republicans today, but they're still the same. More money for the federal govt/less money for the federal govt, more power to the feds/more power to the states, more power to business/more power to regulators, more individual freedom/more govt social control. And both parties play with each of these on both sides of each power play. The easiest way to see it is where one side wants govt control of social norms so that some people wont be offended and the other side wants govt control of social norms so some people wont be offended. You don't even have to label who and what, you can fill in the blanks and know that it is the case. The opposite example is true, one side wants no govt control so they can do what they want, and the other side wants no govt control so they can do what they want.

Except, you know, those rules had been in place at least since the previous administration, and the US Attorney in Phoenix isn't the Attorney General. Nor is a task force that approves funding the Attorney General, for that matter.

Nor is a claim of executive privilege suspicious when that slimebucket Issa subpoenas all of the Attorney General's correspondence with the president and all documents from ongoing criminal investigations and prosecutions involving confidential informants: "Might prove" is an awfully self-serving and agenda-revealing statement.

Can you show me where you've called for the criminal prosecution of the self-confessed war criminals from the previous administration?

What? Did it have far reaching consequences? Yes. If it hadn't been between two political parties, but instead just any one of the thousands of B&Es that occur every year, we'd never of heard of it. Politicos have whitewashed far more sinister deeds all in the name of political expediency and we don't bat an eye.

They realize that impeachment also has to pass the Senate, right.

Hmmmm.  As the article mentioned, this has only happened once before.  For the sake of argument, let's say the Senate DOES impeach Holder; can Obama veto an impeachment of a cabinet member?
