Eric Holder says Republicans have made him a ‘proxy’ to attack President Obama
The Washington Post ^ | July 2, 2012 | Sari Horwitz

Posted on 07/02/2012 7:34:13 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. sharply criticized lawmakers Monday for voting to hold him in contempt of Congress last week, saying Republicans have made him a “proxy” to attack President Obama in an election year.

In his first interview since Thursday’s vote, Holder said lawmakers have used an investigation of a botched gun-tracking operation as a way to seek retribution against the Justice Department for its policies on a host of issues, including immigration, voting rights and gay marriage. He said the chairman of the committee leading the inquiry, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), is engaging in political theater as the Justice Department tries to focus on public safety.

“I’ve been doing all of these things all the time Darrell Issa and his band have been nipping at my heels,” a defiant Holder said. “They’ve been nipping, but I’ve been walking.”

So Congressmen are dogs. That should win Holder a lot of points on Capitol Hill.

If Holder had a pair, he’d be a team player and take himself out of the game. There are probably some fries guy jobs still open in Chicago.

This would be hilarious if his arrogance didn’t make it so serious.

Holder has this completely backwards, though if this is problematic for the Narcissist in Chief, then that is a positive thing for America.

He completely doesn’t understand that the focus is on him, and rightfully so. I must say, he thinks he will beat this. He thinks time is on his side, and I think he is correct.

But...there is still time enough.

LOL. He’s right of course. Only the Senate can get Obama. Not going to happen. Who’s next in the lineup of the guilty? Answer: Eric Holder.

Of course that’s not what Mr. Holder means by “proxy”. He’s talking about skin color of all things. Give me a break.

Holder has gotten away with so much for so long, he thinks he can get away with anything indefinitely. All he has to do is lie, cheat and obfuscate long enough to find another way to blame Bush, or blame his accusers for being mean to him. The guy is a bum. I don’t doubt for a minute that his people are the ones stashing guns along Arizona trails where Mexican gang members can get them. He is agenda driven, and that agenda is to disarm Americans, and control them, at least white Americans.

I once knew a young woman who came into work all perturbed because she had just gotten a speeding ticket. “That damn cop was just trying to make his quota!” she complained. I inquired how fast she was going. “Eighty in a fifty zone,” was the reply.

Holder’s Day Job is the AG of the USA.

Holder’s Night Job is waiting for him in Mexico after Rep. Issa gets the courage to Impeach or convict Holder.

Holder’s Night Job? Why, head of Mexico’s Obama Rifles, of course!

You were right the first time: “I’ve become a symbol of what they don’t like about the positions this Justice Department has taken,” he said. “I am also a proxy for the president in an election year. You have to be exceedingly naive to think that vote was about . . . documents.” Cretin doesn't know what "proxy" means.

WOW! I don’t suppose it ever occurred to him to like not break the law. He has the blood of hundreds on his hands and those victims deserve justice. He should be on his hands and knees begging their families for forgiveness. That’s what he would do if he were a law abiding honorable man.

If the ATF is responsible then their heads should roll along with anyone at the DOJ, FBI or ICE that was involved. If he were an innocent man he would make absolutely certain that happened.

He’s using Alinsky tactics. Freeze your opponent, make them the target. He says Issa is after me, bad guy, bad guy, waaaa, waaa. I am the good guy. I am above all this politics. I hope Issa has the stones to throw this Alinsky crap right back at him. We KNOW. He and Obama probably wrote their Harvard thesis’ on how to rid America of the Second Amendment.

Well, Congress does have the power to arrest him.

Oh very true, but the question is "does Congress have the WILL to arrest him?"

To which the answer is:

If Holder were to head directly to the Office of the Speaker Weeper of the House, drop his drawers, squat on Boner's desk, and dump a big steaming load right there, all that would happen would be a resolution chiding Holder for being 'environmentally insensitive', and even then the Congressional Black Caucus would walk out in protest, saying "wish we'd thought of that first, dat Holder, he be da MAN!"

About the time he took the job as Attorney General, Eric Holder gave a speech in which he called this great country “a nation of cowards” on race. That’s the same nation that had just elected Barack Obama president and was willing to let Eric Holder lead the justice department, despite his role in pardongate and all his baggage from the corrupt Clinton administration.

Has Eric Holder ever spoken out against Black Entertainment Television for being racist, or Ebony Magazine for being racist, or Essence Magazine for being racist, or Al Sharpton for being racist, or the Congressional Black Caucus for being racist? According to Martin Luther King Jr.’s words of wisdom, all of the above are racist because they judge people not by the content of their character, but the color of their skin.

Eric Holder thinks America is racist? Check the mirror, Eric Holder. Check the mirror.

How in the world does allowing thousands of weapons to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels constitute focusing on “public safety”?

But then Eric withHolder quite possibly doesn’t consider Mexicans to be actual people because their skin isn’t the correct shade of brown.

Sure not my "proxy"; not any sort of surrogate, either. Full of yourself, aren't you? Even the MSM put it in quotes because you don't know what the word means.

Yo, Holder, no one around here's afraid to "attack" either of you on your own, for your own shortcomings, no "proxy" or surrogate needed.

So there. Deal with it, loser.

Come on "My People", just say it in English; Whitey's using you as Barry's Whipping Boy. Like a plantation owner, or Nobleman of old, used a Slave to beat when it his own son or Prince who did something wrong.

Come on Eric you can say what you really feel; 'All Crackers Are Racist!'
