Another bloody bad day. This guy should have been stopped.
Yet there was no serious effort to derail him and his perjurious ways.

The Senate on Monday confirmed Eric Holder to become the first black attorney general, capping a prolonged but ultimately smooth confirmation process that saw little of the partisan fireworks some Republicans had hoped for.

Great News!!!

Unless, of course, you're an intelligence officer who used rough interrogation techniques in the service to our country, that is.

Really, it's just prudent to question how your actions will be viewed in the future if the country is overtaken by America hating, muslim apologist, socialists.

D. All of the above.

The Clinton retreads will now get a chance to completely screw up what they missed the first time. When Obummer promised change, the people who adored him assumed it meant for the good. At least now they get to find out the hard way.

It's become obvious now that Affirmative Action coupled with "white liberal guilt" have reached the point we expected: people are afraid to cast an accurate negative comment or point out the hypocrisy of ANY black person in politics, for fear of being targeted by the MSM and others as "racist".

If a black is nominated, they are voted in.....

Get used to it; that's how we got The Messiah, who is not even a proven ELIGIBLE candidate for the office he was elected to, and this black affirmative program will only accelerate under this process and fear of non-Politically Correct conduct.

It’s pretty revolting that the Senate only had 21 members
( I assume all Republicans ) who refused to confirm Holder as the highest law officer in the country.
What kind of Senator thinks Holder’s shady past is fitting for confirmation ?
Wait , I know...the same kind that confirms a tax cheat as Treasury Secretary.
And what kind of POTUS keeps nominating these crooks and bums ?
What’s next for Obama -Al Zawahiri as head of Homeland Security ?

So, the Dems name another criminal attorney general. They are nothing if not consistent. And the press will say nothing about that aspect.

What does 21 signify? About half the Republicans voted against it, and half were in favor? Great.

And now the countdown for Holder firing all GOP Fed prosecutors...followed by the news media bragging on 0bama for the firings as they conveniently forget how they blasted Bush for firing just 6 of them (2 of whom were GOP’ers!).

Thank God my two (TX: Cornyn, Hutchison) voted No. I hope it’s a sign they’re getting the message about posing as conservatives vs. voting like conservatives.

We’ll see when Dasc-hole comes up for approval, not to mention the welfare orgy I mean bailout.

So, John Kyl voted “yes”? Thought he was an up-and-coming conservative leader. Guess not.

Roll Call Vote

McCain and Graham voted YEA! to Holder as Attorney General.

The Juan McCain Truth File.

"I have great respect for Al Gore."
—John McCain, October 2, 2008

FR Keywords: mccaintruthfile, mcqueeg, mcbama

Please tag all relevant threads with the aforementioned keywords.

This can be a very high-volume ping list at times.

To join the ping list:
FReepmail rabscuttle385 with the subject line add  mccaintruthfile.
(Stop getting pings by sending the subject line drop mccaintruthfile.)


Republican Commissar’s Warning: By joining this ping list, you may be subjected to the delusional rants and ramblings of McCainiacs, of "moderate" Republicans, of pragmatic conservatives resigned to voting for the lesser of two Democrats, and of countless GOP shills who simply want to meet a new overlord.

Of course you don’t. Guns are bad news. Only mean people have guns. And mean people suck; it said so on a bumper sticker I saw today.

BOHICA.

Tighten the grip on your guns and buy ammo now.

There will be so many regs and taxes on guns and ammo that prices are going to go through the roof.

If the Dems can't ban them, they are going to make gun owners PAY. Thats the slant this time.

Kay had to...Perry would have beaten her over the head with that vote next year.

I fully expect KBH to vote as a rock-ribbed conservative on every issue this year. Otherwise, she won't stand a chance in the Republican primary next year.

Given a choice between KBH and Rick Perry, I'll be voting "none of the above."
