So yeah, of course he and his AG should send them a big "fuck you." His opposition has been doing the same since day one ("you lie") right through yesterday's vote, and it is obvious to liberal and moderate partisans that they have no interest in working with him. Nor do they give a shit about how guns get to Mexico, or where they come from. So neither should the American electorate come November. As long as "big gun" wants to make and sell guns, it's going to happen. The entire Fast and Furious thing is a red herring of obviousness. Of course Mexicans cross the border and buy guns in border states with lax gun law enforcement. And, if you're a US agent fucking around in Mexico, you're taking a real risk of being shot with a US gun. When the US populace thinks they've had enough of playing cowboys and indians, maybe we'll catch a break over this asinine violence along our border, in Mexico, in US schools, etc. But I wouldn't hold my breath for that.
