The Fast and Furious ‘Executive Privilege’ Decision Decoded
The President needs his self-described non-cover-up associated with the whole Fast and Furious thing to take as long as possible to play out. If things work out well for him, the President will be re-elected with no real political price to pay and if they work out poorly, he can still write his own pardon (as well as another for Eric “My Eye” Holder who will also negotiate any and all fees).
It’s all a part of the Clinton playbook: deny, delay, deceive. Then, if need be and when thoroughly out of options, offer to negotiate. Iran uses the same strategy for their nuclear weapons program.
Every second a voter is dazed and confused about the Fast and Furious issue is a second they won’t be pondering the non-success of Obamanomics.
And if this were a Republican administration, it’d be bigger than Watergate.
