Krauthammer: Eric Holder one of the most incompetent attorneys general in US history Jeff Poor - The Daily Caller 52 mins ago
Last week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder suggested racism was behind the attacks he was facing for the missteps his Department of Justice has made.
On Fridays Special Report with Bret Baier on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer explained what he thought was the rationale behind this charge from Holder: Its a defensive tactic for his political troubles.
Its clearly a cheap shot of an attorney general who is in political trouble, Krauthammer said. The reason he is, he is one of the most incompetent attorneys general in U.S. history. He is the guy who brought on gratuitously the fiasco of the KSM [Kalid Sheikh Mohammed] trial in New York that even the Democrats rebelled against. He has led a department that has been either totally ignorant or disingenuous or worse on the Fast and the Furious scandal.
Krauthammer said this use of the race card was dangerous, particularly when it could stoke racial animosity.
And now he plays the race card, Krauthammer continued. I think its, to use his word a cowardly use of the race card and its unbecoming. It also is dangerous in a country where it can stoke that kind of racial animosity. He shouldnt be using it. I say it with all due respect. Merry Christmas, Mr. Attorney General.

I think that the AG is not incompetent. He is fully aware of what he is doing. It is by design. What would anyone expect from a Marxist POS who has a soft spot for the Black Panthers?
I’d put it this way. D.C. is full of brilliant lawyers. Holder is not one of them.
Contact your Congresscritters and urge them to vote in favor of H.R. 490!
Impeach and prosecute the racist Socialist bastard!
You have found our country’s problem.
Incompetent and corrupt.
Holder does make Reno look competent.
Yeah, just like his hero Hussein. Except I don’t think it is incompetence. I think it is hatred for America, Judeo-Christian traditions, and capitalism.
A boss hires an employee that closest resembles the boss, and I don’t mean in looks. It takes one to hire one.
I think you neglected mentioning his supportive role as a MB agent.
Good point about the boss and holder.
I am not sure if he is incompetent or not but he is certainly corrupt. Under him the Justice Department has become a criminal organization. I am totally serious about that too.
If he is not number one he is really trying hard to win the title.
Give the guy his due for trying like he wants it.
And “The Fourth Best President” can’t find the balls to fire him.
I know some people still admire him, but JFK set the model, first stealing the election in Chicago and Texas, and then making his own brother Attorney General, to make sure he would not be attacked by enemies. The Kennedy family had Chicago Mafia connections, and JFK would not have been able to steal the election if not for Mayor Daley’s support, and LBJ’s.
Then Clinton came along, and did the same thing, choosing an AG who would not act against him, no matter what. And, of course, Holder worked for clinton, too.
Now Obama is doing the same thing. He wants an AG who will do what HE says, not what the law says. And Holder is that kind of guy. Back to the Chicago Mafia again. No need to fear any questions from the Justice Department as long as your very own crook is in charge.
+1. The driving force behind Holder is not incompetence, but rather malice against our Republic.
He is certainly incompetent, but he is even more corrupt.
Krauthammer was being kind.
You said what I was going to say.
Yeah, but he's still sitting in that office.
Competence doesn't matter any more. Only doing the bidding of the revolution and Barry.
Yeah, how convenient to “postpone” an election due to “rioting in the streets,” as some are already calling for.
I'm not at all certain that Holder would even know "what the law says" just as his boss seems not to know.
Both ate making up laws as they go along.
I don’t know about all of the AGs, but I can’t think of any who were more incompetent than Holder, of of more questionable integrity. At least John Mitchell had the character to resign.
You forgot hatred of crackers..........
Two combat tours, earned my CIB three times over, and I have a “lawyer” in a suit that panders to trendy fads and race baits call me a coward. Nice-
The correct word is corrupt not incompetent. Eric the Bigot is probably the most competent AG in the field of corruption. He was competent in corruption under Corruptus Maximus Clinton and he is competent in corruption under the Food Stamp President. Slease bags and scum bags seem like saints when compared to Eric the Bigot.
Have we ever had an AG in history other than Eric the Bigot, that was connected to gun running, money laundering, drug running, extortion, sex trafficking?
Incompetent?! Try Criminal. Corrupt. Lying. Thieving. They all apply and are more defining.
Which one? There are so many to choose from.
Kraut’s a pansy. The correct term is criminal not incompetent.
Krauthammer needs to learn the difference between incompetent and evil. Holder is definitely the latter.
I thought back then JR was just a lapdog that knew
how to stall a investigation till the time had run
and find always no crime had been committed by Clinton
This Holder just says to ##ll with the law
Now if he was a White Republican, the RATS and pinko-commies would be screaming for a public lynching.
Oops, can I say 'lynching'? Or is that racist too?
Holder is covering “the 4th best president”’s backside - balls and all. Fast and Furious was Obama’s plan, so he doesn’t dare fire his inept legal man.
He leaves election stealing ACORN and Black Panthers alone, he prevents conservative Southern States via the Voting Rights Act from redistricting, he opposes challenges to ObamaCare, he is suing States to stop voter ID laws, he sued Sheriff Arpaio to stop picking up illegals, he sued AZ and other States over efforts to control illegals, he has dodged and weaved through at least three daylong Congressional hearings without even revealing who signed off on Fast and Furious.
I despise the Marxist dirtbag Attorney General and his Kenyan master, but the front-man for all that is evil in our DOJ is not incompetent. He is deadly effective.
The difference between Holder and Reno is that Reno peed standing up.
Clinton/Reno were just as corrupt as Obama/Holder.
Clinton was caught red handed lying just like Holder. Reno said she took responsibility for Waco but no one held her responsible.
The media convinced most people that the big story was how much Ken Starr was spending on the investigation.
Most Republicans were outraged that the Branch Davidians would try to stand up to the government.
They didn’t seem to mind a bit when all those children were incinerated.
I guess that is another way to look at Holder. Compitance depends on goals and priorities.
Holder is a stooge, tool, or other such political person since the days of Bill Clinton. He has nada sense of duty and to and belief in the Constitution.
