Will you investigate Fast and Furious?

Re: Question for Republican presidential candidates

They essentially are already, through Rep. Issa and Sen. Grassely who are leading up Congressional driven investigations.

 

Now if the primary objective is to simply pin the whole scmeer on to Obama and Holder, then I'd expect that they should be asked, wherein they can say they will (known in contemporary terms as a "campaign promise") and after they beat tthe Democratic candidate we can sit back and watch them do it.

Re: Question for Republican presidential candidates

You act like the Obama administration set out to do this and had no intention of "tracking the weapons".  Some of the agents thought it was not right so they didn't do their job and the shipments were lost only to turn up at crime scenes.  Stuff happens and not every good idea on paper works when implemented in real life.

Oh, the irony

  What's amusing is that those guns are used to facilitate and/or protect the drugs that those criminals are moving and selling, all courtesy of Bush-the-second-drug-dealer and his incompetence or lack of oversight, or more likely downright purposeful efforts to move that junk into this country.

  Look at the correlation of heroin and Afghanistan(and how the output increased year over year) and the amount of usage, deaths and arrest for specifically heroin here in the US. The Bush family makes the Chinese look like amateurs when it comes to peddling opium.

  At least we didn't have to go through round 2 of the "just say no" BS, like the last time they were involved peddling that junk.

You must spend a lot of time in the check out line at the grocery store reading all those gossip papers with the stories about space aliens and time machines.

You sure about that?  How many exactly?  You sound like you know.

No one knows exactly how many have been killed in Mexico. But at least one US border agent was killed with a fast and furious gun.
