when is a scandal not a scandal?

***
IMAGINE THE WALL-TO-WALL COVERAGE IF AN AMERICAN HERO AND OVER 200 INNOCENT MEXICANS HAD BEEN KILLED DURING THE BUSH YEARS BECAUSE …

The government sold AUTOMATIC WEAPONS to Mexican drug lords!

Why?

The administration *IMHO* was so intent on blaming American gun dealers for the influx of weapons into Mexico and in the process eviscerating legal gun rights and the Second Amendment it:

Allowed over 2,000 automatic weapons to be sold to Mexican drug lords from several cities in the Southwest. Moreover …

There was no attempt to even track the weapons.

The Mexican government was kept in the dark about the operation.

Border agents were ordered NOT to stop the weapons from crossing the borders.

The “gun walking” operation code Fast and Furious resulted in the death of border agent Brian Terry and at least 200 innocent Mexican citizens.

The story was all across the internet in the alternate media but the liberal network and cable news outlets were virtually silent.

Congress has been trying to get to the bottom of things since February of 2011 but has been met with lies, obfuscation and stonewalling from the Obama Justice Department.

The AG, Eric Holder claimed initially there was no such program and claimed he didn‘t know about it when the truth came out that it DID exist and was initiated in Obama’s first year in office.

Holder also claimed Bush's DOJ knew about it and then had to retract that charge when it was revealed it didn't. In fact, Holder has had to retract numerous "misstatements" he made under oath which, strictly speaking, mpount to perjury.

Obama himself claimed he knew nothing until he heard about it in the news.

It’s been lies and misdirection for a year and a half and now, at the eleventh hour, the POTUS who claimed he knew nothing is now dubiously claiming executive privilege.

What is he hiding? How can he claim executive privilege if he had nothing to with the gunwalking operation as he claimed. Is he just trying to place legal roadblocks in the way to get past the November election?

And how is the media reporting on this scandal?

They’re circling the wagons and repeating the talking point it’s just a fishing expedition, a witch hunt, and much ado about nothing instigated by dastardly partisan Republicans.

Tell that to the parents of Brian Terry who lost their son … a young man who put his life on the line to protect this country.

Is it any wonder the media are sinking lower and lower in viewership and readership.

Imagine this had happened in 2003 or 2004 or even 2008 when President Bush was in office.

But under this administration? Scandal? What scandal?

The left … absolutely contemptible.

Don’t you think?
