Posted on 06/12/2012 10:14:12 AM PDT by Nachum
Senator John Cornyn, (R-TX) called on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today in Washington. CORNYN: Youve violated the public trust in my view by failing to perform the duties of your office. So, Mr. Attorney General it is with more sorrow than with regret and anger that I would say you leave me with no alternative but to join those who call on you to resign your office
HOLDER: Senator, with all due respect there is so much wrong with the premises that you started your statement with its almost breathtaking in its inaccuracy
The desire here is not for an accommodation but for political point-making and that is the kind of thing that you and your side have the ability to do if thats what you want to do, but its that what turns people off about Washington, while we have serious problems were still involved with this political gamesmanship

I called the Senators office and thanked him.
Finally someone saying what we are all thinking.
I see that Holder had his talking point all ready to go, turning the blame on the republicans.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Order the U.S. Marshall to handcuff Holder on the spot and frog-march him out of the Senate Chamber.
Well obviously he is being picked on because, in case you hadn’t noticed, he is apparently black.
I think this contempt vote is terrific. They can squeeze his nuts in a vice. If he stonewalls (like John Mitchell), he’ll draw attention away from what the c.r.e.e.p. is doing, and possibly eventually paralyze the wh. If he resigns, then it’s Katy-bar-the-door because once blood is in the water, there have got to be plenty of others who would like to drop a dime on this bunch.
Anyone in the private sector would've already been fired by his employer for untruthfulness and poor judgment.
Great comment by the Senator....Holder of course had the political issue retort and the senator could have added, well, perhaps if the senate leader Obama lackey would move the budget, after three years of waiting, perhaps we would be doing something else than getting your ass out of office five months earlier than your prime supporter.
Eric Holder as the remarkable Mr. Pennypacker.
No entirely correct. It was his staffer who directed him to the answer page that he read from to espouse that answer. I can hardly wait until someone catches this creep flat footed and he makes a huge error. Arrogance will dictate this will happen, the question is when.
I just called and thanked him and also told him I can’t wait until I have the opportunity to vote for him (after I move to Texas later this year)! Hopefully, some others will finally stand up to Holder and force him to resign soon!
Like all of these VIPs, you go to their website to find a phone number AND THEY WON’T GIVE YOU A PHONE NUMBER.
And the web form that REJECTS email from zipcodes out of their district.
Sometimes I wonder why I even try.
I don’t want Holder to resign, I want holder charged, tried, convicted, and put in Jail.
I just started watching this.... http://www.c-span.org/Events/Atty-Gen-Holder-Back-on-Capitol-Hill/10737431427-2/
This little Holder quote could turn into a very nice campaign ad!
Good catch, I like what you're getting at!
Also in that sentence, Holder said; "there is so much wrong" and "turns people off". Turn his words against him.
A more honorable man would have already resigned. Maybe Holder is afraid of losing power - power that protects him?
