IT'S OFFICIAL--John Boehner is stalling Fast and Furious contempt citation of Eric Holder
Coach is Right ^ | 5/13/2012 | Doug Book

Posted on 05/13/2012 10:01:46 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

If Darrell Issa has any thoughts of the full House voting on his Oversight Committee’s citation of contempt against Eric Holder, he will first have to clear the idea with the Attorney General’s staunchest allies and political defenders—Republican Speaker John Boehner, Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Republican Majority Whip, Kevin McCarthy.

Upon the Speaker’s office being provided a draft of the citation last week, a spokesman for the Republican leadership said “While there are very legitimate arguments to be made in favor of such an action, no decision has been made to move forward with one by the Speaker or by House Republican leaders.” (1)

But now it appears these stalwart souls have finally made that decision. They will “…slow [Issa’s] drive to hold the attorney general in contempt over the controversial Fast and Furious program…” for a period of “a month or even longer…” Apparently a year’s worth of testimony and documentation linking Obama Regime operatives to hundreds of deaths and the walking of some 2000 weapons across the Mexican border just haven’t been sufficient to convince Speaker Boehner that something is amiss. (2)

Republican leaders “…still don’t think the case is ‘rock solid…’ ” said an aide to...

Somebody needs to tell Boehner that it’s still okay to go after the bad guys. Even if they are “black”. Eric the Holder is not Barry the Kenyan. He is NOT a messiah that will bring shouts of “racist” if you go after him. Lighten up Boehner and lets go after the commies for once.

Bonehead has to go. Every effort to remove him as speaker and when up for reelection, make sure he is out.

Boehner made an abrupt change in his stance of against Obama and the Dems after his golf outing with Barry. I’d bet Barry introduced Boehner to the compromising dirt he and his have dug up on him.

Boehner is afraid that the media blowback from going after a black Attorney General will hurt Republican Congressional candidates on the fall. Unfortunately, he is probably right.

But in the interest of justice, the answer must be "So what?"

Guys, Think about it. We do NOT want contempt charges now. We want the Charges to be brought in late July and the hearings to drag on during the Democrat convention in August. It will mute any post convention bounce. Then a ruling comes out for impeachment of Holder in September / October. However before that happens Holder would be forced to resign and Obama would have to appoint a new Attorney General.

All this to remind voters how corrupt the Obama Administration is. Now is not the time, keep the powder dry just a little longer.

I think you’re correct on the timing. Closer to the election is better than early spring.
Nothing says Issa can’t continue to collect evidence and make sure this thing blows like a lanced boil in the weeks prior to November.

This is typical Coach is Right BS. They take an article in Politico of all things and expand it to things the article itself doesn't even say, and ask us to accept as fact.

The Left has DU as their unsubstantiated nut blog. We have CiR.

This is way worse than Denny Hastert defending William Jefferson against the FBI raid of his office.

Jefferson was concealing bribe money, but Boehner is blocking an investigation into the death of a federal agent.

Hastert's defense of Jefferson was a contributing factor to the Republicans losing the House in 2006.

We can't let Boehner repeat history in 2012.

Boehner is a drunk; Is he a lush or an full blown alcoholic? I don’t know. What I do know is I have watched him many times on internet-casted speeches or pressers and he was hammered. It explains his crying (alcoholic depression), his overly sympathetic view of our opposition and his otherwise failure to perform. The man is compromised by hist vice and needs to go.

If he is, I am doubly pissed. I DO NOT want politics involved here simply because it might benefit the Republicans. Serious felonious activity took place driven by the United States Government; no politics, charges, prosecution and jail time, no matter what political party letter is after the charged persons name.

So what are we going to do to change that? Everyone should be a small government conservative. Anything else will destroy our nation eventually. Everyone should know that.

Watching this play out has been frustrating, but you're making a lot of sense.

Voters need a steadily escalating barrage of disgust fomenting revelations right up to election day...especially the obama voters!

Corrupt, abject failure of his oath and absolute failure as representative of the people of his state and a huge dishonor on this country. The Bonehead is corrupt!! What else will it take for his state to see that his career as a fixture in DC is a negative for the rule of law? It’s sad that that description of the Bonehead fits most of our elected representatives in DC.

Even if a contempt citation is issued against Holder, does that have any significance?

He’ll have it framed and hanging in a place of honor on his office wall within the hour.

Then what?

He might be impeached, but there isnt a snowballs chance in hell he would be convicted. NONE, NADA.

So the whole Dam thing would be a waste of time and money.

Holder is another matter. He can be removed and it would do serious damage to the democrats. August or October is the proper timing. Drag the whole thing out through the general elections.

Nothing is EVER going to happen to any of these players.There is enough corruption on both sides of the aisle for one side to blackmail the other into doing nothing.There was an abbreviation way back in the 50s an 60s for this kind of insurance,it was known as MAD."mutually assured destruction".

So there will be much bloviating and maybe the odd sacrificial lamb here and there,possibily the odd "freak accident" or "suicide" but all the top criminal politicians will just sit back with their fat pensions and high paid government do-nothing jobs and continue to live the high life.

To suggest that even the president,holder etc are not above the law is pure naievete because THEY are the law.

John Boehner ... like most of the GOP in the U.S. House and Senate ...

have been successfully blackmailed ...

into aquiesence to the "GOP-Democrat" E-RINO "new world order" Obama-Romney political aristocracy-thuggery "Chicago-Way" of doing business ...



That's precisely WHY they hate, despise Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich ...

and also why most of theor "political actions" are mere grandstanding attempts ...

as a "cheap" fund-raising mechanism for the GOP "faithful sheep" ...



This Constitutional Free Republic may (in fact) be doomed ...

Disagree; it is already boring the American public, and there will be other, more pressing worries by then.

It's now or dump the case in the nearest round receptacle or file it away under missed opportunity for the Republican control House to regain some authority.

The Democrats would not mind if a contempt charge is brought. It would be a distraction the the press would play to the hilt. They want everything in the news except the economy.
