It’s a good thing Michelle Malkin was not at that White House press conference!
Here’s the transcript from the Rush Limbaugh website:
RUSH LIMBAUGH: Here’s Jay Carney blaming all of this on George W. Bush.
CARNEY: The problem of gun walking was a field-driven tactic that dated back to the previous administration, and it was this administration’s attorney general who ended it. In fact, the Justice Department has spent the past 14 months accommodating congressional investigators, including producing 7,600 pages of documents and testifying at 11 congressional hearings. Yet, Republicans insist on moving forward with an effort that Republicans and objective legal experts have noted is purely political. Given the economic challenges facing the country, we believe House Republicans should instead be engaged in efforts to create jobs and grow the economy rather than political theater.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: They’re falling apart up there. Every line of that is bogus. Every line of that is bogus. Not every line, but elements of every line are bogus. But Mr. Carney, I would simply say that if you want to stand by what you said, why is there executive privilege? Why not just release these documents that show it’s Bush’s faault? If your guy stopped it, if you stopped Fast and Furious, you might want to call Brian Terry’s family and tell ’em that you stopped it, the dead border patroller. Call ’em up. Holder called ’em after he’d being shamed into doing it. But you call ’em, Jay, you call ’em and you tell ’em that Fast and Furious was brought to a screeching halt by this administration…
…So you’ve got Holder recanting his testimony that Mukasey, the AG during Bush’s second term, was in charge of this. And Carney goes out the next day and contradicts what Holder said. It really is breathtaking. How do you assert executive privilege for a field-driven operation? Everything Jay Carney said, everything he said here was all over MSNBC yesterday. This is just talking points that somebody’s put together.
