Holder Stands Pat against Issa

On the Fast and Furious front, it seems Eric Holder did not deliver the documents last evening. David Codrea, writing for the National Guns Examiner has the story here.

John Boehner is again in the picture as being one of those protecting Holder, and giving him the gumption to stand up firm against Issa. I talked to one of Speaker of the House, John Boehner's constituents when I was in Ohio recently. She was shocked, to say the least, that a Republican Speaker of the House would be playing footsie with a Democrat Attorney General. Frankly, if elected Republicans can not be counted on to consistently demand that this rogue administration acts within the bounds of the law and the Constitution, what good are they? Why should we need them? The Congress has let pass so much that violates the law THEY legitimately made, that one wonders if they have any relevance at all? Perhaps they like the idea of being there, but not really having any duties or power.

David is right about the NRA too. This vote, if it comes to the floor, is a big deal. Perhaps the biggest deal. Members need to know that how they vote on this issue determines their rating with the NRA.
