February 2, 2012 1:51pm 47 Comments Holder to Puerto Rican Rep: 'Wherever you're from' byDavid Freddoso Online Opinion Editor Follow on Twitter:

If you need confirmation that Republicans on the House Oversight committee got under Attorney General Eric Holder's skin today at the hearing on Fast and Furious, just look at this response he gave to Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, who grilled Holder about his own previous statements.

Specifically, note Holder's comment that "maybe this is the way you do things in Idaho, or wherever you're from."

If you are not one of Eric Holder’s people, you should be dead.

“Mr. Holder, this is the Constitution of the United States of America you are screwing with! And I don’t give a damn how the Chicago machine does business, the fraud you are perpetrating on the American people will not be tolerated!”

“If your contempt of Congress persists, I will next be addressing you by the 10 digit number on your ORANGE JUMPSUIT!”

Perhaps Holder can tell us where O’Bastard is from.

I don't understand.....the article says it was a Puerto Rican Rep.....but then ID's him as a Republican from Idaho.

What's up with that?

Labrador, who is Puerto Rican, faced off in 2010 against a primary opponent who insisted in a debate that Puerto Rico is a foreign country.

Rep Labrador is Puerto Rican by origin, and Idahoan by choice and election.

Holder’s origins are less than respectable, if you get my drift....

From this day forward, every comment or question directed at Obama should include the phrase ‘...or wherever you’re from...”!

Congressman Labrador was making the soon-to-be ex-Attorney General uncomfortable.

Remember when H. Ross Perot used the term “you people” when speaking to a group of blacks while running for President?
The sh - t hit the fan in the lame-stream media and with the likes of Jackson and Sharpton because of the use of that term.
Gee, I wonder if the lame-stream media will be as upset with Holder the Racist for his use of the term “or wherever you’re from”? Doubt it!!

As far as the Republicans go, it is deeds not words that are important now.
If the Republicans just bitch Attorney General Holder out, and do nothing, no subpoena to make him tell the truth or face perjury charges, no Contempt of Congress resolution for the insulting remarks to elected and sitting Congressmen, then the Republicans will earn the contempt they are given by Attorney General Holder.
The Republican words of weakness are oozing out into the general campaign in the form of rising negatives and dropping conservative participation in the nomination and pre election process.
The Republicans, for whatever motivation, may want to lose.

LOL. Actually, Holder looks more like most Puerto Ricans than Labrador does.

Puerto Rico is CULTURALLY a foreign country, where more than half the population uses a WIC card.
