Skip to comments.Poor Eric Holder: He's taking all this unwarranted flak just to protect Obama
Posted on 07/03/2012 6:44:39 AM PDT by marktwain
The way Attorney General Eric Holder sees it, all this mounting criticism of his inept leadership as the nation's top law enforcement officer is simply predictable politics of the worst kind in an election year.
And last month's congressional contempt citation against him, the first ever of a sitting member of a presidential cabinet, isn't really about his Justice Department pouring thousands of weapons into the already pretty well-armed Mexican drug wars and causing the death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent (Brian Terry, see photo above). And then denying the House Oversight Committee access to relevant documents.
No. The way Holder sees it, this whole mess isn't really even about him, as important a fellow as he is. It's really about President Obama.
Holder sees Republicans using him as a proxy for the president. Because, as everyone knows, there's nothing legitimate to criticize President Spendalot about. The economy is humming along nicely, nearly 2% at last report. Unemployment is way under 20% now. Back in May, this vast nation of about 320 million people was, thanks to the policies of Democrat leadership, creating a whopping 92 new jobs every hour.
And Obama is growing the national debt faster than any previous president, a trillion dollars a year, so much so that he earned the country its first ever cut in credit ratings last summer.
So, with nothing serious to attack Obama over, these Republicans led by Rep. Darrell Issa of California, have nothing left but to come after poor Eric Holder. With the keen grasp of a razor-sharp legal mind, Holder told the Washington Post, "Ive become a symbol of what they dont like about the positions this Justice Department has taken.
Holder added, I am also a proxy for the president in an election year."

Can the MSM continue to provide sufficient support to spike and hide Democrat scandals, as it has done for 60 or more years?

Obama: I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking
“But I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.”
Holder is like the guy who said he fathered John Edwards’ love child.
After assisting Janet Reno in the kidnapping of Elian Gonzalez, he should have resigned his job at the Injustice Dept. Apparently, he can’t get a job elsewhere.
AKA Turtle Head
The sad thing about this is that it is a horrible reflection on the Black race. How many people will think that he is incompetent because he is black, not just that he is incompetent and happens to be black.
Holder’s ding as he is told because more than anything else, he wants to “LIVE”!

Dear Representative Gardner:
Dear Senator Udall:
Dear Senator Bennet:
Let's call Fast and Furious, Castaway, "Grenade Walker" and "Cash Walker" what they are. State-sponsored terrorism.
On this side of the border they are violations of the RICO Act. In Mexico and Honduras it is state-sponsored terrorism.
What else would you call heavily arming international criminal syndicates within foreign countries wherein those countries are in a death struggle with those syndicates?
Especially when it goes beyond thousands of assault rifles to include grenades, RPGs, shoulder fired rockets, anti-aircraft guns, night vision equipment, body armor and special deals to bring their drugs onto our soil with legal impunity?
Not to mention the just-revealed news that the rip crew that killed BP Agent Brian Terry was there with DEA and FBI assistance and approval to attack and kill a rival cartel's smuggling crew.
Let's not leave out the FBI and DEA laundering millions of dollars for the drug cartels by setting up bank accounts for them that they otherwise couldn't do.
It is organized, it is spread throughout every Federal LEA and it violates numerous domestic laws and numerous statutes and treaties that deal with foreign nations. Yet none of it has been officially sanctioned by Congress. (that I know of) It is the Federal government acting like mafioso.
Pres. Obama, AG Eric Holder and Sec. State Hillary Clinton are all deeply involved in this and it is unquestionably state-sponsored terrorism by the definition used to define states like Iran and North Korea.
PS: if you think I am wrong or exaggerating any of this I will be glad to bring you up to speed with very well sourced articles, legal depositions (publically available) and other public information that verifies every word I have said.
Either you are with these criminals or you are with U.S. I implore you to get informed, get involved and act or get run over by this. This lawless scandal is not going away.
Town, State, Zip
Here is a petition to call for Eric Holder's prosecution.
Tea Party Petition to Prosecute Eric Holder
After signing the petition you will get an automatic way to send an e-mail to your Congressman and Senators. You can use their text or fill in your own.
I strongly encourage all FReepers to sign that petition and to send their own thoughts about this to their Congress critters. Let them know that you are aware of this issue and that you are not going to forget about it. Let them know you will be watching to see what they do about it.
mr 0b0tt0 wont even let Hispanics have metal eating utensils when dining near him.
Is this unwarranted?
An act of war.
It’s ok, he declared congress in recess when he did it.
Obviously it is an act of war. I was trying to be more specific.
Someone please explain to me why minimizing the death and casualties to Brian Terry’s death is the standard.
Why ignore the 200 plus Mexican deaths and the hundreds more wounded with these Obama guns?
I say put up a picture of a pile of Mexican corpses and ask why Obama sold these weapons to kill these people?
