Fast And Furious conspiracy theory finally peters out with fake contempt vote

Original post made by Rich Alto, Midtown, on Jun 27, 2012

For a year, every day, Fox news has worked with the Republican Party on a conspiracy theory with made up stories about Obama wanting to take away guns by giving criminals guns to take to Mexico - "Very clearly, they've made a crisis and they're using this crisis to somehow take away or limit people's second amendment rights," Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Cali.) said on "Hannity" tonight."

Here come the haters..... ;-)

The ATF agents worked hard to stop the guns. Their agency is always facing budget cuts from NRA supported politicians.

The agents tried to get prosecutors to allow arrests of gun purchasers who then resold guns to gangs. Prosecutors were hamstrung by Arizona laws which allowpurchasers to immediately resell guns.

The scandal is todays gun laws.

And, of course, Fox.

And the GOP's submission to the NRA.

I'll happily post links with evidence. I dare the wingnuts who think fast and furious really sent ATF weapons to Mexico post their evidence as well.

They won't.

Fast and Furious was a silly movie, just like this gun story.

Stupid, partisan vote today, with the NRA announcing it will score the vote.

Won't go anywhere, doesn't mean anything, will be drowned out in fiveminutes with the decision on RomneyObamaCare.

Okey-dokie, the Contemptible Congress just voted contempt against a man who appeared 9 times and turned over 7,000 documents. Stupid, childish, useless, partisan vote, and now it's done with.

Now, can they get back to work and work on creating jobs?

Nope, they're going to take ANOTHER week off. When they get back from another vacation, they're going to vote again on settled law, the constitutionally approved Affordable Care Act that will provide healthcare for 35 million Americans. Truly the do-nothing congress, except vote on abortion.
