Fast and Furious – worst case

Barak Obama is commonly considered by conservatives and moderates to be a worse president than Jimmy Carter. If the Fast and Furious scandal leads us to John Hinderacker’s worst case case scenario, Obama may sink to the level of worst president in the history of the republic. The best case scenario is gross (to the point of criminal) incompetence.

Was Fast and Furious All About Gun Control?

If the Obama administration did arrange for the shipment of arms to Mexican drug gangs, not for any legitimate public purpose but in order to advance a left-wing political agenda, and those guns were used to murder hundreds of Mexicans and at least one American border agent–which they were–then we are looking at a scandal that dwarfs any in modern American history. I think one would have to go back to James Buchanan, who ordered the shipment of federal armaments to the South so that they could be commandeered by secessionists when disunion came, to find a worse scandal. And one could argue that even that act by Buchanan, generally considered the worst President in American history, was motivated by principle and not politics, and therefore was not as craven as Obama’s gun walker scandal. But such a judgment would be premature. A great deal more investigation needs to be done before we can conclude that Fast and Furious was the worst scandal since pre-Civil War days.
