Gunrunner: Border Patrol union demands Eric Holder’s resignation
Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and quite frankly just about everyone associated with the Obama regime has shown a stunning lack of remorse toward the Terry and Zapata families, as well as the families of the hundreds of dead Mexicans which can be directly attributed to the deadly scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious. Even with one hundred or so Congressmen calling for Eric Holder’s resignation the beleaguered Attorney General remains defiant and refuses to accept any responsibility for the scandal.
Other than trying to shift the blame for this fiasco to rogue ATF agents in the field the Obama regime seems concerned about little else, but that might be about to change now that the Border Patrol union has called for Eric Holder’s resignation.
This is something that all of our guys are concerned about, because they know it could be any one of them,” Shawn Moran, a union vice president, said according to the Arizona paper.
“We take the risks that are out there naturally just being in law enforcement working across from Mexico in the condition it’s in right now,” Moran said. “But what you can’t accept is when your own government is allowing weapons into the hands of the people you’re confronting
Some of Barack Obama’s biggest supporters and contributors are the various unions and their members and Barack Obama is already on thin ice with public sector units for not fighting for them in the Wisconsin recall election so this just might be something the Obama regime cannot ignore.
While the Obama regime might not care about the loss of life attributable to this deadly scandal they might just be worried about the lack of money flowing into the campaign coffers as a result of Operation Fast and Furious. As sad as it sounds money might just trump human life, after all the Obama regime considers Brian Terry’s death collateral damage and partially justified the program after his death by stating that in order to make an omelet you must scramble a few eggs.
With added pressure being applied by the Border Patrol union it will be interesting to see if Barack Obama and Eric Holder finally find their consciences and do the right thing even if it is for the wrong reason.
