Boehner To Cave, Holder To Skate On Fast And Furious

Sipsey Street Irregulars
As for yesterday . . . (it was) a plea bargain of sorts where both sides save face. The Committee will accept the scalps of Breuer and Wienstein, DOJ will release enough of the (documents) to condemn them, claim cooperation (thus giving the appearance of recognizing congress's oversight authority), and Holder will survive - looking like a "leader" for offering them up (along with a few lower level ATF and DOJ folk). The Committee will chalk one in the "Win" column for oversight and holding people accountable. DOJ will have the same for cooperating and accountability. All sides win, all checks and balance intact and working fine, all powers respected and then they move on to the next act of political theatre. The only ones left to sweep up the mess, are the American and Mexican peoples - ignorantly secure in our beliefs that the system works and that our government is actually for us, by us, and of us.
If this is true, it will be the biggest betrayal of the public trust and further proof that Boehner and the GOP were paying nothing but lip service to the Tea Party sheeple who believed that this was the one time in history that politicians were telling the truth.

One has to wonder, what's in it for him and what kind of back room deal was cut? One thing is for certain, if this report pans out I'll be making a donation to the campaign of whoever is running against Boehner in Ohio's 8th district.

Let this be a lesson to you so called conservatives who think for a second that Romney, Gingrich or Santorum will be any different and won't sell you out in a New York minute if they beat Barry in November.
