Quotes of the day

posted at 10:49 pm on June 20, 2012 by Allahpundit

The Fast and Furious investigation has finally handed House Republicans a prize they’ve long sought: a legal smackdown of the Obama administration.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) was able to show skeptical conservatives that his spine could stay stiff under pressure from President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder by locking arms with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on a contempt of Congress vote Wednesday. There was no daylight — at least publicly — between Boehner and Issa, a dynamic the White House was desperately seeking.

But the victories could come with a cost. House Republicans’ hot pursuit of Holder doesn’t exactly line up with Mitt Romney’s message, which he wants to keep focused on the economy. And Obama’s campaign wants to tie Romney to what he considers an extreme Republican majority…

“I didn’t want this to be a campaign issue,” Chaffetz told POLITICO in an interview, “but it should go to the courts right away. What are we waiting for? We’ve been waiting since December 2010. There are those that think it’s taken too long to get to June 2012.”

***

Unfortunately, Chairman Issa has rejected all of these efforts to reach a reasonable accommodation. Instead, he has chosen to use his authority to take an extraordinary, unprecedented and entirely unnecessary action, intended to provoke an avoidable conflict between Congress and the Executive Branch. This divisive action does not help us fix the problems that led to this operation or previous ones and it does nothing to make any of our law enforcement agents safer. It’s an election-year tactic intended to distract attention — and, as a result — has deflected critical resources from fulfilling what remains my top priority at the Department of Justice: Protecting the American people…

The American people deserve better. That is why, I will remain focused on, and committed to, the Justice Department’s mission to protect the rights, safety, and best interests of my fellow citizens and to stand by my brave colleagues in law enforcement.

***

Chairman Issa should file suit in federal court in DC and seek expedited action. There is no need for Senate action. The use of this procedure has been acknowledged by the Congressional Research Service in a 2007 study. Further, a privilege log should be sought by Issa and ordered produced immediately by the court, in camera inspection done promptly by the judge, and a final order entered compelling production of all documents for which no legitimate reason justifies Executive Privilege.

Yes, some documents may be covered by EP, but the blanket attachment of that label flouts the law and the Constitution, and harms the legitimate assertion of EP by Presidents of either party in the future. The Constitution is far too important to be subject to the caprice of this President and an AG who, on its face, wants to be free from scrutiny about why he testified falsely before a Committee of Congress.

Executive Privilege is a very important implied executive power, used in various forms since the presidency of George Washington. Therefore, it’s misuse and abuse, to cover-up wrongdoing, conceal embarrassing information, or advance a political agenda, diminishes the ability of future presidents to assert it legitimately.

***

“It’s clear that this is nothing more than a political witch hunt to distract from the fact that Republicans in Congress have no interest in focusing on what we need to focus on, which is jobs and the economy,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”…

Wasserman Schultz … claimed Republicans were taking advantage of the issue to distract from voting on two major pieces of legislation this summer involving transportation and student loan interest rates.

***

Even with his fawning press, [President Obama] will pay a price for this one. He knows this, meaning that the documents now to be withheld must be dynamite. They have to show either that Holder knew what was going on with Fast and Furious and approved it, or that he directly committed perjury in his Congressional testimony, or both. I just can’t see any other explanation for such a risky move.

Wasn’t the Washington Post just covering big time the 40th anniversary of Watergate? I wonder how much coverage this one will get.

***

President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege in the “Fast and Furious” scandal is the latest in a series of recent reminders that an incumbent president is not to be underestimated. He has substantial powers at his disposal, even when he’s wounded by a sluggish economy…

It goes in line with the president’s unilateral expansion of his discretionary authority in immigration cases, the undeclared cyber war against Iran, or the use of drones in attacks on terrorist targets, even U.S. citizens. Congress has ceded power to the White House in the last 30 years, and Republican and Democratic presidents have not hesitated to exploit the situation. In an election year, as Mitt Romney is discovering, an incumbent like Obama can stage an impressive display of presidential forcefulness…

The Republicans want more documents. It is a slow summer on Capitol Hill. A farm bill counts as major legislation. The House Republicans will take advantage of Obama’s claim of privilege to shake their fists in fury, and fill the Congressional Record with savage innuendo. But unless they bend, they’re not getting the documents.

***

Brown, earlier in the segment, had already accused Issa of “leading a lynch-like mob” against Holder.

Holder made the same accusation in December. “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” Holder told the New York Times, “both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”

OT: Please keep Pastor Norm Friedmeyer in your prayers. He is one of my closest friends and a Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod pastor. He is seventy five years old and fit as a fiddle normally, but Saturday he was trimming branches and a limb knocked him off his ladder and pinned him, breaking over half his bones. His intestines have ‘gone to sleep’ whatever that means. He is truly a godly man and a very conservative and orthodox Christian and American gentleman. Please keep his dear wife June in prayers as well. Thanks and God Bless…

I understand why the left (read: Politico) wants to frame this entirely as a campaign issue -they need it to be- but given that there are lots of dead bodies as a direct result of this ATF effort, maybe they should be glad that Congress is acting on the business of the United States. After all, they didn’t start this in an election year.

CK summarizes:

1) F&F is now a national issue and a big deal which the media for the first time in 18 months will be forced to cover;
2) It now involves the President vis a vis his authorization of DOJ’s assertion of Executive Privilege; and
3) (downside for Republicans); It will be spun as a distraction from “real issues,” more Republican obstructionism.

If he’s right about all three, two out of three ain’t bad, and he’s minimizing the damage the first two could do to the President in voter’s eyes. But like all of these pundits, he’s left out the most important outcome of today’s committee vote: The family of Special Agent Terry is a step closer to seeing justice done.

Further, a privilege log should be sought by Issa and ordered produced immediately by the court, in camera inspection done promptly by the judge, and a final order entered compelling production of all documents for which no legitimate reason justifies Executive Privilege.(emphasis added)

I like this approach better than using the DC US Attorney to go after criminal contempt. I think it is likely the fastest way to pry those documents loose. Once the judge has them, game over.

And I think there will be far more serious charges than Contempt of Congress down the line for the most corrupt and incompetent Attorney General in the History of the country.

“A minute after he took office, the White House website declared his administration would become “the most open and transparent in history.”

Five years ago, in 2007, Senator Barack Obama went on Larry King’s show on CNN. During the interview, he stated that the Bush administration was “hiding behind executive privilege” after King asked him for his opinion on Executive Privilege in theory and practise.

CNN’s Larry King:

“Do you favor executive privilege or should Karl Rove and others in that like position be forced to testify before the House or Senate?

Senator Barack Obama, Larry King Show, 2007:

“Well, you know, I think we’ll — we’ll determine over the next several weeks how this administration responds to the very appropriate call by Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, to have these individuals come in and testify. You know, there’s been a tendency on the part of this administration to — to try to hide behind executive privilege every time there’s something a little shaky that’s taking place. And I think, you know, the administration would be best served by coming clean on this. There doesn’t seem to be any national security issues involved with the U.S. attorney question. There doesn’t seem to be any justification for not offering up some clear, plausible rationale for why these — these U.S. attorneys were targeted when, by all assessments, they were doing an outstanding job.

I think the American people deserve to know what was going on there.”

*******

Senator Barack Obama, 2008:

“Let me say as simply as I can, transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency. I will also hold myself as president to a new standard of openness…But the mere fact that you have the legal power to keep something secret does not mean you should always use it.”

******

Senator Barack Obama, 2008:

You know, there’s been a tendency on the part of this administration to — to try to hide behind executive privilege every time there’s something a little shaky that’s taking place. And I think, you know, the administration would be best served by coming clean on this. There doesn’t seem to be any national security issues involved with the U.S. attorney question… I think the American people deserve to know what was going on there.”

******

President Barack Obama, 2009:

“The government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure. because errors or failures might be revealed or because of speculative or abstract fears.”

******

President Barack Obama, 2011:

“There may be a situation here in which a serious mistake was made and if that’s the case we will find out and hold someone accountable.”

“But the victories could come with a cost. House Republicans’ hot pursuit of Holder doesn’t exactly line up with Mitt Romney’s message, which he wants to keep focused on the economy…”

Bullsh%t…

… The House Republicans are doing their Constitutional job by reigning in an Administration that regards themselves above the Law.

Sure the media will try to spin it, but it’s not 1974 anymore, and their lies, selective editing of the news, and propaganda are blown out of the water before they are finished reading the teleprompter…

Romney can stay on message, there is no need to change that, he just has another topic to talk about when listing Obowma’s record…

… Calling Obowma out is a feature, not a bug.

And what ever the Supremes do, unleash the Super PACs to add to the battle…

… Hit Obowma from all sides, apply the law, tell the truth about his record, and expose the true State of the Union.

Pound him to dust…!!!

… This is our Country and the rule of law we are talking about!!!

And the documents in question belong to the people, in effect. They are the “work-product” of the Justice Department of the friggin’ people.

How in the world can Holder withhold these documents legitimately? National security? Yeah…sure.

I don’t think Issa is a lawyer.

novaculus on June 20, 2012 at 11:20 PM

So? Neither is Elena Kagan.

Lanceman on June 20, 2012 at 11:23 PM

How long before they start referring to Issa as a “White Arab”.

ardenenoch on June 20, 2012 at 11:17 PM

Never, Issa is not Arab, he is Lebanese. His father was an Eastern Orthodox Christian, which I believe makes him Maronite.

I’m going to print out the prayers and good wishes on this thread for Norm and June. They are some of the finest folks I’ve ever been blessed to have in my life. Truly…

Yup, Mark Levin commented the same. Let’s get F&F into the DC courts fast lane.

Won’t ever happen..I hate to say neither side has the stomach for it…

I get more & more disappointed with Boehner every day, he just seems to want to go along, to get along.

We need a leader…anyone have any ideas?

ccrosby on June 20, 2012 at 11:25 PM

After 9/11, Democrats were all about “connecting the dots”.

Today they can’t even find the page the dots are on.

How convenient.

When the documents are finally released, those same Democrats are going to look very stupid and gullible.

Unfortunately, the same idiot voters will return those people to office in November.

KOOLAID2 on June 20, 2012 at 11:21 PM

Yeah. And my point, explicitly this time, is that liberal or no-name blacks don’t have any need to follow the law.

Anyone…Go ahead, call me a racist. (Then give me an example where high-profile black folks have to adhere to the law!)

RedCrow on June 20, 2012 at 11:25 PM

Wasn’t the Washington Post just covering big time the 40th anniversary of Watergate? I wonder how much coverage this one will get.

Good question..Very good question..:)

Rachel Maddow destroyed you guys over this nontroversy tonight, exposing all you right-wing circle-jerk morons once again.
