Krauthammer: Eric Holder ‘one of the most incompetent attorneys general in US history’

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 Friday’s “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: It’s a defensive tactic for his political troubles.

“It’s 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 it’s, to use his word a cowardly use of the race card and it’s unbecoming. It also is dangerous in a country where it can stoke that kind of racial animosity. He shouldn’t 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.

I know racism is not behind the attacks. It seems reasonable that the attacks as he calls it are because it has become increasingly obvious the AG is directly responsible for hundreds of murders including our own law enforcement professionals. Jail time is not enough for this racist.

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 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.

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.

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.

"He wants an AG who will do what HE says, not what the law says."

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.

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.

Krauthammer needs to learn the difference between incompetent and evil. Holder is definitely the latter.

Holder's half right, it is racism. But the racism is coming from him and his Homie in the White Hut. Dropping the Black Panther case on day one, which the DOJ had already won by default, was a minor preview of all the crap that was to come from him and his criminal lackeys.

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.

Incompetent? He may deliver Hussein a second term.

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.

“Holder does make Reno look competent.”

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.
