The Witch Hunt

••••  The honest truth is coming out about Fast and Furious and it shows that, according to Fortune Magazine, ...the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels....

The Fortune article only adds to the belief that Darrell Issa is going after Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama for political reasons.

Why won't Issa honor the President's claim to Executive Privilege?   Issa is wrong.

*** Have you noticed that Republicans and their right wing media have gone after African-American members of President Obama's administration.  The list includes Shirley Sherrod, Van Johnson, and Eric Holder are part of the list that the Republicans have targeted.  Is this just another item on the Republican agenda to try to take down the first African-American President?  Darrell Issa's investigation has been nothing but a witch hunt and a scam.  Why aren't we investigating Issa's background?

>>> Despite being in the toilet with polls, Republican Josh Mandel, Ohio's often absent Treasurer, continues to go on his campaign cash circuit hitting up Republican groups.  One announced Mandel stop is in Solon, Ohio, just a hop, skip, and a jump away from home. (It sort of reminds me of a boss I once had that would always make his sales calls at businesses close to his home so he could go home early.) 

Josh Mandel's strange behavior with a Columbus TV reporter, his lies about the voting record of Sen. Sherrod Brown, and his lies about the support he was getting from Democrats (Republican-loving Columbus Dispatch reporting that Josh Mandel only has 4 Democratic supporters, and those "Democrats" have flipped their votes in the past).

Wouldn't be appropriate to have Josh Mandel be forced to finish his job as Ohio Treasurer?  That would be awesome.
