President Obama Falsely Claims Fast and Furious Program "Begun Under the Previous Administration"

Asked about the Fast and Furious program at the Univision forum on Thursday, President Obama falsely claimed that the program began under President George W. Bush.
"I think it's important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration," the president said. "When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned a inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued, confirming that in fact Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and the people who did initiate this were held accountable.
As we all know, the people allegedly held accountable were those who stepped down, retired or "felt bad". So once again, the president is blaming the previous administration for a program initiated under his administration. Always taking the credit when things go well, whether he had anything to do with it or not, and passing the blame for his failings on anyone but himself. People really want four more years of this? Amazing!
