Skip to comments.Gun group urges Ryan to confront Biden on Fast and Furious
Posted on 10/11/2012 5:00:21 AM PDT by Travis McGee
The national right to keep and bear arms advocacy group, Gun Owners of America, urged its members and supporters today to ask Rep. Paul Ryan to bring up Fast & Furious in the debate this Thursday with [Vice President] Joe Biden.
Just recently, Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan A rated by Gun Owners of America -- became the 131st Representative to call for Attorney General Eric Holders resignation, the alert reports.
This is a unique opportunity for him to show how the administration will use diabolical methods to advance its gun control agenda, GOA explains, providing a link to the Romney campaign website contact page and a sample letter supporters can use.

I have no confidence that, even if F&F is brought up, it will be addressed as the monstrous attempt to undermine the Constitution that we know it to have been. I wouldn’t expect Ryan to go beyond the “botched” meme, characterizing it as another episode of incompetence not distinguishable from all the rest of Obama’s failures and, thus, lost in the noise.
One hopes that Mr. Ryan will have the cojones to give
Mr. Biden what he has been dishing out for his many years in Congress.
(Prayers going up that he wipes the floor with Mr. Biden.)
just recently ??? and hes our next best/last chance at getting traction on F&F ???
maybe he can get another backroom deal going with boner and piglousy...
The upshot is that this administration has been making war against our own country and our allies while ARMING our enemies. What is wrong with this picture?
“I wouldnt expect Ryan to go beyond the botched meme”
Actually, I would love to hear Ryan say: “Now, many say that Fast & Furious is an example of the Obama Administration’s incompetence, or a scheme to justify more gun-control within the US. Most of us can see that a plan for giving 2,000 plus weapons to murderous drug gangs, with no plan whatsoever for tracking the guns, was a formula for death and disaster. But maybe that’s unfair. VP Biden — please explain your Administration’s thinking.”
Of course this will happen when Choom vans fly.
The narrative of this certainly dovetails with the botched security issue of the Libyan embassy. He should tied both together and hit Biden simultaneously with it.
F&F isn’t even a conspiracy theory, it is fact, but I highly doubt he or any anyone else will bring it up because they want to be “positive” instead of a disgruntled whistleblower. That, and really, the Republican party is so full of wussies they refuse to pull the trigger when they have their enemy in their crosshairs.

You are probably correct. I give it a 1 in 10 chance, unless that rube Biden stumbles into it.
Agreed, but there's so much wrong with F&F:
[B]ut I highly doubt he or any anyone else will bring it up because they want to be positive instead of a disgruntled whistleblower.
Well, that and the fact that the lack of any significant repercussions on government agents [and agencies] indicates a level of corruption which, I think, violates the Normalcy Bias for most people. (So they refuse to accept it, or dismiss it, because it would shake their world-view too much.)
That, and really, the Republican party is so full of wussies they refuse to pull the trigger when they have their enemy in their crosshairs.
The lack of action, to me, indicates that the Republican Party is not about Government Accountability; as you can see, F&F is, on its face, no less than four major crimes.
Ryan first has to get elected, and as VP it's not clear what sort of pressure he could apply -- the creatures in the machine are pretty well embedded. With proper pressure, maybe later. But even that, I'm not counting on.
