Obama Washes His Hands of Illegal ATF Gun Running Operation
Let me see now… Janet Nappylatino says she didn’t authorize it nor know about it [CLICK HERE]. Now, Obama claims that he and Eric Holder knew nothing about it nor did they authorize it.
Hm. Seems no one knew about it nor did anyone authorize it. Well, that’s good enough for me. After all, Obama would never lie about something like that.
Yeah, right! You mean to tell me that Napolitano, Holder, and Obama—who have all made it a top priority to clamp down on some sort of chimerical gun running supposedly going on between the U.S. and Methico—had absolutely no knowledge whatsoever about an ATF sting operation violating numerous laws in order to get guns into the hands of the Methicans?
Bullsh@t! Look, the ATF has no authority whatsoever to do anything like that. Nor would they willingly break all sorts of laws to allow guns into Methico unless those orders had come down directly from the top. Now, who would those be directly at the top? Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, and Mr. Barack “the buck never stops here” Obama.
On an unrelated note: I recently upgraded to Firefox 4.0. Much to my chagrin, the spellchecker has suddenly started recognizing “Obama” as a legitimate word. Frack! I’ll miss the little kick I got every time I typed in “Obama” and the spellchecker would scream at me in squiggly underlined red protest.

Univision‘s Jorge Ramos: THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT COMPLAINS THAT THEY WERE NOT INFORMED ABOUT THE “FAST AND FURIOUS” OPERATION. DID YOU AUTHORIZE THIS OPERATION AND WAS PRESIDENT CALDERON PROPERLY INFORMED ABOUT IT?
Barack Obama: Well, first of all I did not authorize it. Eric Holder, the Attorney General, did not authorize it. He’s been very clear that our policy is to catch gun runners and put them into jail. So what he’s done is he’s assigned an I.G., an inspector general, to investigate what exactly happened…
JR: SO WHO AUTHORIZED IT?
BO: Well, we don’t have all the facts. That’s why the I.G. is in business. To collect the facts.
JR: AND YOU WERE NOT EVEN INFORMED ABOUT IT?
BO: Absolutely not, this is a pretty big government, the United States government. I[t’s] got a lot of moving parts […]
Hey, Barry, here’s a tip: If the government is too bloated for you to keep track of something as big as this is, maybe it’s time to start downsizing…
