If you could choose how to spend the night before vote to hold you in contempt of Congress, would you go to a barbecue with the people who hold your fate in their hands? Eric Holder must really like hot dogs.

RELATED: Issa Gives Holder One Last Deadline Before Contempt Hearing

Yes, Attorney General Eric Holder spent the night before his contempt vote mingling with the rest of Congress, including the GOP, at a barbecue for their families on the White House grounds. "Oh, to be a fly on the picnic table..." Politico says. A vote is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon when everyone Holder spoke with at the barbecue (excluding husbands, wives and kids) will vote on whether or not Holder will is guilty of contempt of congress.

Remember when Clinton was impeached? All the Lefty Dems gathered on the Capital steps to giggle, goose, smooch and tickle each other for the cameras in order to show their vile and utter contempt for a just (and rare) application of the enforcement statutes in US Constitution.

These fellows could in principle send Holder to prison and they’re all behaving like actors backstage of an opera where the actor who plays the villain yuks it up together with the actress playing the heroine.

It’s almost enough to want a return of the old Congresses in which they’d whack each other with walking canes.

What must it be like to socialize with a facilitator of mass murder? Holder’s rifles have been traced to over 200 deaths, so far, and the killing will go on for years.

One of the most violent episodes in congressional history took place in this chamber on May 22, 1856. The Senate was not in session when South Carolina Representative Preston S. Brooks entered the chamber to avenge the insults that Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner had levelled at Brooks’ cousin, Senator Andrew P. Butler. Sumner’s “Crime Against Kansas” speech of May 19-20 was sharply critical, on a personal level, of Butler and several other senators who had supported the “popular sovereignty” provisions of the 1854 Kansas-Nebraska Act. Sumner was addressing copies of the speech at his desk when Brooks began his attack, striking the northern senator repeatedly with a walking cane, which splintered with the force of the blows.
Although two House members intervened to end the assault, Sumner, who had ripped his desk loose from the bolts holding it to the floor in his effort to escape, was rendered unconscious. He regained consciousness shortly after the attack, but it would be three years before he felt able to resume his senatorial duties.

The caning of Senator Sumner signalled the end of an era of compromise and sectional accommodation in the Senate, further heightening the discord that culminated in war after eleven southern states seceded from the Union during the winter of 1860-1861.

Actually, it’s a smart move on his part. It will give the others a chance to see him in an informal atmosphere and not sitting at a table defending himself while under oath.

Beneath that humble boyish smile and all the ‘handshaking and hugging’ lies an evil deceptive murderer. I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t show up with his wife, kids and the family dog. Whatever it takes to appear as a normal human being and not the scumbag liar that he is.

I remember the media showing algore playing football with his family right before he lost. As if it was showing how carefree he was about the whole thing. Right before the lawsuits started.

And I can’t seem to even find those pics anymore, too bad.

______________________________________________________________

Everyone keeps saying: “200 deaths”. The correct number is over 300 Mexicans killed. Many were innocent men, women and children. Has anyone bothered to inform the Mexicans in the U.S. (legally and illegally) that their Dear Leader, had 300 innocent people killed in their homeland?

...he who not once, not twice, but 3 TIMES (that we know of) committed "TREASON" by intentionally leaking sensitive classified info to the Media and who should by all rights (if he were NOT a Far, far, Left, Demo-RAT and who's voting record was even more Liberal than the former Ted Kennedy) be still doing time in Leavenworth.

The libtards latest talking point — as Bob Beckel has regurgitated over and over again on The Five — is that Brian Terry would have been murdered anyway because, like the drug cartel bad guys would have obtained the murder weapon anyway.

There’s a very simple rebuttal to that, and not one of the four right-leaning talking heads has figured it out yet.

If Bob and the rest of the libtards are correct, then WHAT WAS THE POINT OF WALKING GUNS!!!! THE BAD GUYS WILL GET WEAPONS ANYWAY!!!!!

Today’s vote will not wipe that smirk and arrogance off his face. No, only after Obama is defeated and the court case runs is course and he is indicted and then tried on obstruction (minimum) or accessroy tot he murder and convicted.

Then, when he is being marched into the Gray Rock Hotel, that’s when I want a pic and I bet at that point, his face and attitude will be markedly different. For him and Obama both, both criminals of the highest order IMHO, I long for such a day.

Hahahaha...the good old days! Heck, I would return to even the fifties if we could. At least then, regardless of votes, you could be sure most legislators likely had the best interests of the country at heart.

Now, you wonder who they work for, whose pocket they are in, and are often inclined to side with the UN.
