Sack is a very talented artist. The cartoons are very well made. This is the first time I've seen one that is negative toward the Democratic party and Obama. The cartoons are always biased toward negative coverage against the Republican party.

Hmmmm, if Sack can see the obvious cover up and rip Obama and Holder for claiming executive priviledge, Obama is in trouble. Because I can count on one hand the shots Sack has taken at Obama in 3 + years.

He IS in trouble. Election year, his executive privilege is essentially brushed aside, the supreme court is going to strike down obamacare later this month. Ouch.. The gig is up.

The Republicans are, once again, wasting the resources of our Country for their unbelievably selfish mission of doing everything they can to demean Obama. What they don't realize is that they have "thrown the baby out with the bathwater" by ignoring the good of the U.S. to desperately try to regain power. Some of these guys should be in jail for treason. They must think the American people are blind to what they are doing! The current set of leaders have ruined the Republican party.....maybe permanently......by their conduct.

drsage - wasting resources??? Your right, investigating why the US government put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels that were ultimately used to kill a US Border Patrol agents isn't really for the good of the country. Give me a break, how can you defend this. They are hiding something very bad here and the public deserves to know. Where is all that transparency Obama promised, give congress the documents they want. Either Holder tells us what happened or he should be held in contempt.

"Your right, investigating why the US government put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels that were ultimately used to kill a US Border Patrol agents isn't really for the good of the country."

This scandal needs to be investigated. I agree 100 percent. But it's interesting that this is the first time conservatives are giving a rat's behind about American weapons ending up in the hands of drug cartels. This is the first time conservatives are paying attention to the U.S. policies that have killed Latin American citizens. Never before have conservatives sounded like the members of Amnesty International. American weapons and policies have been killing Mexicans for generations. And this is the first time conservatives care.

This latest failed effort on the part of Americans to stem the flow of weapons and drugs across our border does deserve a full investigation. But forgive me if I find the feigned outrage too little, too late. The motivations behind the "outrage" have nothing to do with a dead border patrolmen and everything to do with politics.

@drsage - Let me ask one simple question. If it was a republican AG and republican president with democrats leading the oversight committee would you still be as indignant? Or is this just purely a partisan issue to you? I recommend you think it through with the opposite labels and then ask if it is still just "wasting resources." I honestly think you wouldn't be as indignant then.
