it will not be possible to resolve this issue before the November elections
After which, it will be largely forgotten, which is no consolation to the victims and their families. That's the part that chaps me the most.

By exerting executive privledge, President Obama has tied himself directly to F&F.
Not really, but it does seem to imply that the administration has something to lose by complying. At the very least, it comes across as cronyism.

Let's remember that the President was making denials about F&F in a Univision interview in February of 2011, while the Attorney General claimed not to have heard about it until April or so.

However, the documents being witheld involve internal discussions since then, and I wonder if the committe doesn't have enough evidence to go forward already.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
