Mr Obama, as the President of the United States you have access to all the resources that you need to answer the following three (rather simple) questions.
#1 Who authorized the Fast and Furious program?
#2 What was this program meant to accomplish?
#3 Is this program directly or indirectly responsible for the death of border agent Brian Terry?
These are very simple questions, Mr. President, so why are you and your Attorney General Eric Holder Jr, suddenly hiding behind “executive privilege”? It can’t be because you ‘re afraid of revealing national security information as your White House and the New York Times seem to have that aspect of government coordinated quite well. It can’t be that you are trying to avoid “transparency” now, can it, sir? It was your declaration when you were running for your current office, sir, that you vowed your administration would be the most OPEN ….ever!
Your invocation of executive privilege is not something that you would try to pull a “Richard Nixon” with, is it, sir? I guess not since you’ve already surpassed Mr. Nixon in the dirty tricks department already. Besides, “Tricky Barry” just doesn’t have the same ring to it as “Tricky Dicky”! You wouldn’t try to avoid responsibilty for the giant screw-up that Fast and Furious became, now would you? The late ex-president Harry Truman always said that the national buck always stops with the President. Wouldn’t you agree, sir?
An American hero and border agent named Brian Terry died as a result of Fast and Furious, as did several hundred Mexican citizens, sir, so please reassure myself and the American people that our President is an honorable man. We want to believe in our hearts that you would not TOLERATE corruption in any area of government; that’s why the answer to these three simple questions is so important to us. We just need some proof that everything is on the up and up in the corridors of power in D.C., Mr President. So please give us all a break and the answers to these three little questions BEFORE the coming election.
Oh, I almost forgot…….didn’t you say when you were a Senator that Presdient Bush has used, in your judgement, “executive privilege” for the wrong reasons even though he was vindicated later? Your use of this privilege, we taxpayers would like to believe, is justified, but we just haven’t quite figured out why yet. We know that you would never resort to creating smoke to cover up wrongdoing……I mean, look what happened to Nixon and to former President Bill Clinton for lying to Congress. We know of course, Mr. President, that neither you or your Attorney General would ever do such a thing.
By the way, Mr. President, I have a gift idea for all those Democratic supporters of yours in the House of Representatives that voted NO on citing Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr. for “contempt of Congress”‘ They are pocket-sized editions of the Constitution of the United States written for a third grade reading level, easy to understand. There is a little addition being added to them that explains what the oath, that you and all government officials took upon your swearing-in to office, actually means. Thank you for your time, Mr. President. Oh, and please don’t erase any tapes that Mr. Issa’s oversight committee might need. Mr. Nixon tried that, and it didn’t work out too well for him. Get some sleep; you look a little haggard, sir. Happy 4th of July!
