This is pretty common knowledge not sure what you were trying to imply.
End the war on drugs. It isn't working and it unfairly penalizes minorities especially those in the inner city.

This is a lie. Fast and Furious did not begin under Bush, it began under Obama. Wide Receiver, a different program began under Bush and was ended under Bush.

"When (Attorney General) Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it." -Obama

This is a lie. Eric Holder knew about Fast and Furious from its inception, so he did not discontinue it when he found out about it.

Bush had a similar, yet different program that was discontinued in 2007 for being a threat to the public safety. Obama had a larger and different, but similar program started in October of 2009.

Be a man, use your brain and break the chains that enslave your mind to a party. When you excuse lies and failures from politicians simply because they are on your "team" we all fail. You fail too. Our government is failing us, because people like you enslave your minds to them. Don't be a sheep anymore, don't accept lies and failures.

Barack Obama said 'Fast and Furious' began under the Bush administration | PolitiFact Florida

Why does Obama ever have to tell the truth or be accountable? He knows you'll be there to lie for him.
Politifact says the programs did the same thing and their entire argument is about the fact that it was shut down. You, like politifact are arguing that because it was shut down for a year and was renamed that they are different.

Sorry, but that only flies with those who dont like President Obama. How about you be a man, and stop trying to make arbitrary arguments.

What you should be trying to argue is if the program was something we should have invested time in, not the fraudulent argument of "well, it was shut down under Bush, therefore it isnt the same thing when Obama restarted it"

You can play the insult game all you want, but the only one looking bad is you, how does it feel to hate someone so much that you would make the above argument ????

It has not worked, but either people aren't figuring that out, or they don't care.
