A Tale of Two Scandals
[Watergate, 1973] '…Republicans broke ranks with their President to find out what the President knew and when he knew it, Democrats are standing firm to try and make sure the American people never know what did the Attorney General know [about Fast & Furious scandal], when did he know about it and did he lie to Congress?
...The painful truth is that we now have a major political party in Washington that will do anything, say anything, bury any scandal, just so it can hold on to power. Gone are the days when Democrats would step up for the truth for the greater good of America.
Gone are the days when Democrats could put aside partisan bickering in the best interest of the nation.
Gone are the days when Democrats loved this nation and could be counted on to be patriotic.
Today, Barack Obama and Eric Holder are both symbols of the new Party of Treason.'
Condensed commentary from Tea Party Nation

The parents of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who was killed by illegal wielding Fast and Furious weapons, have released a statement surrounding today's events:
"Attorney General Eric Holder's refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Operation Fast and Furious and President Obama's assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth. Our son, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, was killed by memebers of a Mexican drug cartel armed with weapons from this failed Justice Department guntrafficking investigation. For more than 18 months, we have been asking our federal government for justice and accountability. The documents sought by the House Oversight Committee and associated with Operation Fast and Furious should be produced and turned over to the Committee. Our son lost his life protecting this nation, and it is very disappointing that we are now faced with an administration that seems more concerned with protecting themselves rather than revealing the truth behind Operation Fast and Furious."

Regardless of political affiliation, if you want my respect, much less my vote, stand up for honesty and integrity instead of covering up your mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes, but everyone doesn't have to use their position and power to cover them up...
The promise of "hope and change" is half true; although the promise of 'change' has been utterly disgraceful. What happened to "more transparency in government" Mr. President? DC
