The Hill: Grassley vows to block nominees until he gets answers on gun sales.

Grassley insists.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is vowing to block President Obama’s nominations until he gets detailed answers on a controversial program that resulted in drug cartels acquiring more than 1,300 firearms from the U.S.

THANK YOU, Senator Grassley!

“At best, the ATF was careless in authorizing the sale of thousands of guns to straw purchasers,” said Grassley.

“At worst, our own government knowingly participated in arming criminals, drug cartels and those who later killed federal agents.”

nicely put.

And to add (subtract??) fuel from the fire, how about withholding funds??

Grassley will need help on this...unfortunately Texas' Cornyn & Hutch are probably m.i.a.

"Grassley, who has irritated Democratic and Republican administrations with his aggressive oversight, did not specify which Obama nominations he is targeting."

One would hope that if Grassley is trying to accomplish anything, he'd put a hold on EVERY Obama nominee until the administration comes clean or Holder and Obama resign.

I'll thank him when he actually DOES IT.

So far it's all talk, no action - which I'll grant is better than others who can't be bothered to even TALK about it, but still...

As the song says - "a little less talk, and a lot more action, please!"
