This President and some of his choice people, i.e., Holder should be ashamed of themselves for creating so many messes in the USA. Hope all the voters in 2012 are able to see what these kind of airheads are doing to this great country and VOTE THEM OUT.

It all depends on what your definition of "transparent" is.

The Obama Administration won't care one bit about this "proposed regulation" being dropped. They will continue to lie to the American people regardless. Holder is the biggest crook to occupy the Justice Department in it's history. Didn't know about "Fast and Furious?" There's a lie right there, or is it just an "omission of the facts?" You're a liar, Holder...and that won't change no matter what gets dropped.
