Let’s recap what the Obama administration’s assertion of executive privilege over documents concerning Operation Fast and Furious did and did not do.
It did not call off the congressional dogs. The House Oversight Committee is pressing forward with contempt action against Attorney General Eric Holder. The Republican majority seems outraged by the action rather than deterred.
It did implicate the White House in a scandal about which it was supposed to know nothing. How else can they invoke executive privilege if the president didn’t have some knowledge? The move has also gotten mainstream and other non-conservative media outlets talking about Fast and Furious.
All in all, this is not what the administration intended when it decided to go the executive privilege route..

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
