The talking points express appears to be stopping at only two stations this week: “Witch hunt” and “Bush started it.”

As Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” ABC’s “This Week,” and Fox News Channel’s “Fox News Sunday” to discuss Fast and Furious, apologists for the Obama administration employed both talking points in spades in an effort to defend Attorney General Eric Holder from the growing scandal.

How’s that for coordination (or mindless repetition)? Here’s part two: The persistent, but entirely untrue, claim that Fast and Furious began under President Bush, and was ended by Holder. There’s a healthy dose of “witch hunt” included here, as well.

What would leftists do if blaming Bush was taken off the table? Based on the effort they continue putting into invoking the former president’s name whenever something doesn’t go their way, we may never know.
