Reminds me of a snearing German ambassador in Lethal Weapon (II?) that arrogantly sneered, "Diplomatic Immunity", when confronted with his wrong-doings.
Obama blew it big time. He and Holder... we could also include Janet (dammit) too... should all be fired at the very least. Holder should be put in jail.
Levin always gets it right and makes an otherwise murky constitutional issue crystal clear to all but the willfully deaf, dumb and blind.
I saw links earlier to Maobama criticizing Bush for using Executive Privilege in 2007, what did Bush use it for?
IMHO Issa and this committee have wasted enough time and kowtowed to Holder/obama for long enough......a special prosecutor should have been appointed when the whistle was blown. I don't trust the republicans to handle this correctly. The results so far have not been encouraging.
Republicans have to move forward. The people want it and demand it.
We can't let lawlessness run rampant from someone who thinks he can control everything.
Hey, lets have some transparency here. Perhaps the curtain is about to fall.
Yep, on the job training. Obama should know at least a little bit about the constitution he hates so much.

Obama and his little minions know full-well what they're doing. Despite Obama's claims to be a Constitutional expert, he's nothing of the sort. He relies solely on the advice of his sleazy cartel of lawyers to find holes in the system and exploit them to the fullest political advantage. Chief among those sleaze merchants is the paid liar Holder.
They will. I'm just bracing myself for the inevitable folding like a cheap suit. Hopefully, I will be pleasantly surprised, but I'm not counting on the GOP to do anything other than lip service. I have no faith in house leadership.
It appears there are two types of Executive Privilege: Presidential Communication Privilege and Deliberative Process Privilege. It appears Obama has invoked the latter of the two, which deals with protecting decision-making processes from scrutiny.
'...courts have stated that the deliberative process privilege is negated when the party seeking discovery has provided “reason to believe” that governmental misconduct will be uncovered by the requested material' - ESCAPING THE FISHBOWL: A PROPOSAL TO
FORTIFY THE DELIBERATIVE PROCESS PRIVILEGE
Issa may have some footing here. We will see what they do.
Hey Nukefriend, just in case, here's the latest insider report- Since dear leader invoked executive privilage, he's owned Fast and Furious now... http://theulstermanreport.com/2012/06/20/white-house-insider-obama-owns-fast-and-furious-now/?fb_ref=fb_activity
Thanks for the Ulsterman. I particularly liked the update. The Dem that Chaffetz had a run in with was probably Speier. He got under her skin today at the hearing, so she was probably still steaming.
If the vote next week goes as expected. Issa will send it to the US Attorney of the District of Columbia. As expected, he probably won't prosecute, so Issa will need to get a second resolution and then take Holder to court on the Deliberative Process Privilege. That should end up going to Supremes and there is where we will see results, in my opinion.
However, if I read into Ulsterman correctly, something is stirring in the White House right now and I suspect 'something' is about to hit the fan. I like the sound of it.
BTW, if you ever want a headache real fast, try reading the entire article above on Deliberative Process Privilege (j/k). I barely got through the entire article (46 pages, albeit short pages).
It's not important to read the whole thing. My quote was the key phrase. I just had to dig to find it. There are far better things to look at. Perhaps, you can have your boy read it and give a report. lol
Don't say I didn't warn you. It's legal shtuff.
Wouldn't it be great if Breibart came out with a new bomb just about now. I know they have a summer full of nuggets just waiting for us. Timing would be great.
I'm in the mood for a headache. I'll read it now :-) Thanks Nukefriend.
PS, I believe something in the WH is gonna hit the fan too, but how dear leader spins it will probably end up making the rest of us get hit with whatever it is that hits. It's going to keep getting interesting.
Once again, Levin educates America. It is amazing to me that Congress, the media and the public will ignore and gloss over blatant intentional violation of the law by our highest officials, yet will not pay a bit of attention to the simple truth and background when laid out like this.
In a completely different direction, I am wonder just how many pounds of incriminating documents Janet Napalitano can sneak out of the White House in one trip.
Bottom line he is black and the Republicans are afraid of the racial ramifications. and obama knows it.
As hard as I find it to believe that the Repugs will give way to the destruction of the country for that reason, I'm afraid you're right. You'd think, after almost four years of horrendous presiding, they would have all the defense they need--absolute cowards. I wouldn't miss a stroke.
Well, if Sandy Berger can stuff some in his pants and remain a free man, just think how many this woman can get away with. Sickening how the left gets away with so many criminal actions.
Barry was never a "constitutional scholar", merely a lawyer who, incidentally and mysteriously, "voluntarily" surrendered his license to practice law. This mysterious guy is a puzzle wrapped in an enigma. When everything comes out on this unknown entity, the country--and Barry, I pray--will be in for a very rude awakening. First, of course, we must usher him out of our White House--one way or the other.
I think Romney is getting under Obama's skin. From all indications, Obama is losing it. He's literally going nuts and his campaign is unraveling.
He knows what he is doing. He is daring congress to stop him. He knows he always has the race card to play and a city or two to burn to make his point. He and Holder are dirty immoral men who will do anything to stay in power and advance their socialist agenda.
What part of the race card is he going to play, the white half or the black half? I remember when he was running in the primary and Jesse Jackson said he didn't think BHO was black enough.
He's more than clever. He's dangerous. Not only does he know what he's doing (well, not him, but his handlers), but he laughs in our faces every time he gets caught. There is no telling what can happen next.
Lock and load.
Constitutional "law" has nothing to do with the Consitution. A better name would be to call it "The Constitution as We Want it To Be".
Constitutional Law has everything to do with the Constitution, what is taught at Harvard Law School (along with Yale, Columbia, et al) is actually 'Case Law', the practice of citing precedents to interpret the document rather than citing contemporaries and original sources. If you'd like to find an examples of Constitutional law as it should be, as it was prior to Harvard Law starting the practice of applying Case law to the document, research this man, Rob Natelson and the Independence Institute.
I think he and his patrons know a lot. They are attacking its underpinnings and seem to have taken a calculated risk that no one in Congress, the press or the public will actually stand up to stop them or can even figure out what they are up to.
We will see.
