Barack, Executive Priviledge will not protect you, now we know it goes all the way up to you, first apologize to Brian Terry's family then to hundreds of Mexican families whose children and Mothers and Fathers were murdered because of Fast & Furious, your Ex. Priviledge will be struck down just like Nixon's was, you are going down for Murder

You think the conservatives here are bad? Try looking at foxnationdotcom some time. Or posting a question at answers.yahoo with President Obama in any part of it. Conservatives have went out of their minds the last three years. Or maybe we are just seeing what they really are inside. http://www.filthyliberal.com
