So what was she waiting for?
Well why the hell not? Gee, I'm sorry it takes time and effort to actually hold the executive branch accountable, but that's part of the f'ing job and the Democrats punted it. Just part of the reason they were voted out en masse at the last election.
So - is Issa holding Holder in comtempt partisan? Yes but that's what he's supposed to do. Frankly, the Fast and Furious program should be investigated - it was a travesty.
Of all the issues I wish congress would investigate, is this at the top of my list? No, but it's a legitimate issue.
And the Democrats should have been holding investigations 100% of the time since BushCo was elected. But no, they seem to think pearl-clutching is a more effective strategy. Dems suck. Sigh.
