Objection Speculative

The recess appointment that did not bark?

When the Senate went on winter break, in December, it was widely feared by Second Amendment Supporters that President Obama would seize on the chance to recess appoint Andrew Traver to head The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Christian Science Monitor story on Traver from November 19th seems to take a recess appointment for granted. Even Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a call earlier in the year for the President to recess appoint stalled nominees.

The President passed up that chance and a collective sigh of relief was heard throughout the land. At the time I was scratching my head (why are they dumb?)

What if they knew a storm was coming?

On December 14th Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry was shot and killed, and very quickly the internal rumors at ATF was that it was a "walked" gun.

To the best of my knowledge the first local news stories on "Project Gunwalker" where in early January. Fox picked it up on February  2nd one day after the Senate recess ended.

It begs the questions What did you know, and when did you know it?

Did someone want to keep Traver clear and let Melson take the fall.

Did the President know? Most likely not.

Did he want to appoint Traver, and was waved off by Holder? Another administration official? (lacky, flunky, bagman.)

Is there a paper trail? An interoffice memo telling Holder to hold off. a smoking gun? would the media care?

All these questions would be ruled speculative in a court of law.

Did the Senate skip winter recess?

I need help reading the Senate schedule. I found this

Bob Owens thinks it is thin, but hey I'm new at this.

VC tonight

I will not be on it.

Do you have Skype?
No, I don't want to be recorded with all those threepers. Any thing you say can be used against you in a court of law

Spyderco Squeak

ATTN: Falnfenix

Of course you can't buy this one because it is a prototype. (Why do I keep doing this to you?)

Note that non-locking knives are one result of the laws where Great Britain used to be.

Rick Perry & Al Gore (WTF)

Rick Perry Was Al Gore’s Texas Campaign Chairman in 1988.

Ho hum? 
Let's call the whole thing off?

Digging into the forum posts, I am inclined to agree with this argument:

Rick Perry in 1988 was honorary chairman of Al Gore's campaign in the Democrat primary in Texas. Perry at the time was a conservative Democrat State Representative. Al Gore's campaign in 1988 was short lived because Dukakis wrapped up the nomination quickly. Like most conservative Democrats during that period a quarter century ago, Perry made an easy transition into being a conservative Republican, he ran for Agriculture Commissioner in 1990 and was elected as a Republican. 
And Also
Al Gore back in 1988 was posing as a moderate Democrat, in fact of all the Democrats running that year Gore posed as the most conservative. He morphed into Mr Climate Change later. 

PolitiFact has this quote from Perry:

"Going through that (Gore experience) was part of what started me through the process of changing parties in 1989," Perry said. "I came to my senses."
