Blog: Marisha's Thoughts: Obama Invokes "Executive Privilege" in Defense of Attorney General Eric Holder

I was shocked to see the headlines in today's news: President Obama invoked "executive privilege" in defense of Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to withhold important documents from Congress, documents that may reveal who was in command of the program known as "Fast and Furious", that led to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, as well as numerous innocent Mexican citizens caught in the middle of the illegal drug and gun trade.

This seems to show that our current President and Attorney General have something to hide. Talk about transparency promised by President Obama! I truly believe that there are two sets of rules that govern this country today: one set of rules that apply to American people, and one set that applies to the President and his cronies. Hmm, this reminds me of one defunct dictator by the name of President Ferdinand Marcos. Marcos abused his executive powers to the point of taking away from the Filipino people the most precious of all human possessions: FREEDOM.

Watch out, America! We, as a nation, are in for the worst roller-coaster ride of our lives!!!
