Speaker Boehner protects Eric Holder from Contempt of Congress citation...again
Coach is Right ^ | 5/1/2012 | Doug Book

Posted on 05/01/2012 10:07:18 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

Three months ago conservatives were jubilant over reports Congressman Darrell Issa would offer a Contempt of Congress complaint against Eric Holder.

After all, the Attorney General had openly refused to honor House Oversight Committee subpoenas for an estimated 80,000 documents vital to the Committee’s investigation of the role played by members of the Obama Regime in Operation Fast and Furious.

Holder spent nearly a year lying to Congressional committees and making clear he had no intention of honoring legal subpoenas. His Assistant Attorney General Ron Weich had written a February 4th, 2011 letter to congress claiming the criminal walking of more than 2000 firearms across the Mexican border had never happened. It was that letter which would have the distinction of being the first ever Department of Justice communication to congress which had to be withdrawn by its sender, due to certain “inaccuracies.” (1)

Yet deadlines set by Issa and Senator Charles Grassley for the production of subpoenaed documents have systematically been ignored by this corrupt Attorney General with no substantial response by congressional Republicans.

On April 27th, CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who has reported ferociously on Regime Fast and Furious felonies and misdemeanors since its inception, wrote of a contempt citation being prepared by Darrell Issa. Attkisson discovered a...

This guy is such a LOSER for us. WHY don’t we all give his office a call.

Office of the Speaker
H-232 The Capitol
Washington, DC 20515
Phone: (202) 225-0600
Fax: (202) 225-5117

WHY do we put up with him? Talk about hiding under his desk. GET OUT of our Speaker’s office if you can’t handle the job, Boo Hoo Boehner! My 2 cents.

Call your own Rep’s office and complain. Don’t just sit on your computer - DO something positive to make this guy shake in his boots. T.E.A. Party is NOT dead.

Most of us didn’t want him in the first place. Still no clear idea how he got the nod to being with.

What the hell could the Dems have on Boehner?

I think he needs to be investigated to find out what that hold is, so it can be exposed and he retire out of public life so work can be done.

We don't have a two party system. It's all RATS. For years, the GOP is in lockstep with them.

No Balls Boner must go.

From the ground up we have to reclaim the party.

From the top down we have to get rid of the ruling elite rinos and country club, corporatist repubs.

This has to be done all at once or else the leadership strangles off anyone we send there, as is evidenced the last two years how the 2010 tea party folks have been marginalized since the people did their part and sent them to DC.

Boehner stands on the bodies of over 300 dead Mexicans and two Federal agents and says “I’m above it all.”

And this is the party that will lead the charge to get our country back? Wake up people!

Go third party - Constitution Party - and MAKE it work. All red-blooded Americans and politicans make the move now and we’ll still have a chance; first at the state and local level, then the WH in ‘16.

Alright, all you Ohioans. It’s up to you to get this treasonous crybaby bastard out of office. America is counting on you.

Yes. Quite a few of us pointed that out when we first found out he was nominated for Speaker.

Question is... What do we do about him? Who is pulling his strings? How can we either twang those strings ourselves or cut him loose entirely?

Why is Bonehead still Speaker of the House?

Why hasn't the majority party replaced him?

You want thie POS out...it's an OHIO TEA PARTY issue.

They need to find the alternative, support the alternative and vote OBoner out of the congress. The rest of the country can whine to their reps but ONLY Ohio can do something about it.

Unfortunately, nothing will ever change. We sent a large conservative group of new congresscritters to DC in 2010.

It didn’t take long for Bonehead and Cantor to “turn” most of
them. The faster we send them, the quicker DC turns them.
3rd Party may be the only option left.

His turn to be the pivot-man at the backroom circle jerk that is apparently in charge of the GOP these days.

I sent the following email to Boner

SpeakerBoehner@mail.house.gov

I find entirely believable when I read that you are blocking Rep. Issa's committee on Fast and Furious in view of the overwhelming history you have of "going along to get along" and your total lack of courage to address this administration's lies,chicanary and attacks on the Constitution directly. You have allowed the President to get away with anything with nary a word. It's bad enough that the media lies for him but it is reprehensible that the so called leader of the "the People's House" would lay down like a toady and cover for him.

Since I know that this will not be read by a human being but will just generate a form response, I realize that it is an exercise in futility that is the only form of redress a citizen has these days. I pity the poor fool who next calls me to ask for a donation to the Republican party.



who voted this idiot into office?
