#2 Good point, crosspatch. Moved. Unfortunately, I can't see the video on my iPad, so I can't answer Tom-PA's question.

#3 Audio presentation. Private sector doing well but Romney indicates it was not a slip, that he went on with that subject. Where is point man Joe Biden when you need him.

#4 Mods- this is Tom-Pa.. I'm sorry if I 'mistakenly' tried to post this 6.5 minute "PODCAST" on your website. I frequented rantburg early in the 2000's. There is no video, this is merely a 6.5 minute PODCAST by my local radio host. I'm getting confidence each day that BHO will not be able to win 270 electoral votes. BHO will be 'out of here' come post election day. I've learned much in hanging out in Rantburg. With your articles/ reader comments. Thank you. The MSM has been withholding info from the US population, and certain stories (specifically, this Fast & Furious). Eric Holder has been questioned much recently. Those members of the committee are being 'stonewalled' asking for information, even as far back as a year ago. I'm a big Issa fan, along with other members of the REPUBLICANS sitting on the commitee. The DEMOCRATS are going with the strategy that the investigation is just politically motivated on the part of the REPUBLICANS. They simply claim that the REPUBLICANS are simply on an unnecessary WITCH-HUNT. The lower level agents have testified previously. My understanding is that the liberals are against the second amendment. Strategy they were using was it's too easy to get guns. To prove this, the US Government and agencies( I know of at least the ATF) procured I think it was 6000(?) guns supplied/bought at US mexico border and turned over to Mexican Drug cartels. Most of the weapons headed south into Mexico (GOD only knows how many poor Mexican citizens) have been killed by these weapons. However, in 2010, US border agent, Brian Terry was killed at the border. The serial number on the gun that killed Terry, matched one that was involved in the purchase of the original 6000.
I also remember by one of the testifiers, the US didn't even co-ordinate this operation with the Mexican authorities. Agents testified that the US agents(?) were going to keep a close eye on the shipment(s) to see where they were headed. At that time, the US would notify Mexican authorities. Up to this time, only the lower agents have been reprimanded. But where did the orders start from? That is where Issa has been making continuos requests of the administration for some time now. As an aside, has anyone here been watching on c-span the recent questioning of Eric Holder by the commitee? and to go back further in time, has anyone watched the questioning of the lower level agents giving details of the operation? Just wonderring, because nothing/minimal details have been reported by the 'state controlled media'. You have to remember, if they don't report it, it never happenned. (censorship). Sorry to really go off on a tangent here, after all my original posting had to do with a MITT ROMNEY interview on the radio yesterday. Off the record here, since I don't even watch the news anymore has any of my above 'short-story'(ha-ha, short) appeared on CBS, or NBC, or ABC, or CNN, or MSNBC, or even FoxNews?? I'm hoping the proverbial "shit hits the fan" sooner/rather than later(post election)- Who knows these days?
As an aside again, I was trying to find out how many of the 'sheeple' has ever heard about this?
I would introduce myself, go one on one with that person and ask them, "If I mention the term 'Fast and Furious', does it mean anything to you." Most of my respondence from that person would be, "you mean the movie?" So, I figured that person didn't know.. If this makes RANTBURG pages, I would welcome your comments. You people here are astute as to what goes on, and would appreciate some feedback.. GOD BLESS the USA, obama's out of here come november. BTW, whats the intrade on the election right now?
Prediction here is Pres Romney, along with Republican controlled Senate and House. Not sure though with world middle east events, along with world financial crisis. About five months to election. Sidenote, recently had 'spine surgery' on 6/1 and am recovering at home. I have 'seen the light', dr's say I could have been left paralyzed. Often I see postings by Steve White over at Professor Jacobson's 'LegalInsurrection'.
So is anybody else following this? I am going to blame the long story on my backpain meds! thank you for your time...
#5 Looking for some comments by 'Frank G' and 'Steve White'. Any help??

#6 Tom-Pa, they made me a moderator while you were away, so I was speaking above in that capacity. (Life is full of surprises, I know.) I wasn't the one who published your plea, though, so another mod thought it worth sharing with our gentle readers.
We've been following the Fast & Furious story from the earliest days, thanks in part to moderator Sherry, who also came on board after you turned your attention elsewhere. I think it was ABC that's been reporting the story -- one of their reporters has a stubborn streak. Also, our own badanov has been doing independent reporting on the drug war and politics in Mexico, where they are not pleased about their citizens dying from F&F guns about which they were not informed.
You'll want to send a note to Fred (see the front page in the right margin for the link) to regain access to the articles in the archive, so you can get caught up on the subject. Fred tightened that up during the Righthaven excitement -- he was one of the bloggers they went after, which was not fun despite the generous support of some of our clever Rantburg lawyers and business people, and quite generous donations from the readership.
I'm glad your surgery went well, and welcome back! I was just reading through the older bits of the archives yesterday, and found myself wondering what had happened to you and some others. :-)

#9 Check out this link for Fast and Furious Ad.
That worked, Tom -- thank you! I'm still working on figuring out the quirks of the iPad that replaced my last laptop, and am handicapped by a decided lack of technical ability, about which my family, now including two professors of computer science (my sister just got the offer yesterday!!) find highly amusing.
