The GOP has declared the "Fast and Furious" scandal to be "Obama's Watergate."
Forget the fact that they have all their facts wrong (when have facts factored into the GOP's thinking?) and forget the fact that the whole thing is pretty much made up by Roger Ailes and the gang of thugs at Fox News, which even Conservative Fortune Magazine branded as pure BS – it's still a great story and, as Jon Stewart points out – this makes four Watergates for Obama and that makes him 4 times worse than Nixon – who has somehow become the Republican Party's new benchmark example for being a horrible President, replacing Jimmy Carter, who failed to have ANY Watergates:
"How Fast and Furious reached the headlines is a strange and unsettling saga, one that reveals a lot about politics and media today. It's a story that starts with a grudge, specifically Dodson's anger at Voth. After the terrible murder of agent Terry, Dodson made complaints that were then amplified, first by right-wing bloggers, then by CBS. Rep. Issa and other politicians then seized those elements to score points against the Obama administration, which, for its part, has capitulated in an apparent effort to avoid a rhetorical battle over gun control in the run-up to the presidential election. (A Justice Department spokesperson denies this and asserts that the department is not drawing conclusions until the inspector general's report is submitted.)"
You HAVE to laugh about this stuff – otherwise you'll cry for what has become of this country….
