Posted on 06/04/2013 7:28:53 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) is calling his vote to confirm Attorney General Eric Holder the worst vote I ever took in the United States Senate, saying Holder should resign in light of recent scandals.
I did my due diligence, turned out I was wrong. And everything thats happened since that has proven I was wrong. Its ruined his credibility in terms of being attorney general, Isakson said. Somethings going to come to a head, because this is very serious business.
Isakson was one of 19 Republicans in the Senate who voted with Democrats to confirm Holder.

“Johnny Isakson: I regret Eric Holder vote”
Too little — too late, Johnny.
Johnny Isakson knew Holder burnt children,
broke into the Columbia office, and was a liar and worse.
That makes HIM an accomplice BEFORE THE FACT.
Three words. Marc Rich pardon. That was reason enough to reject Holder and it was hardly a deep secret.
Sorry, not buying it.
Holder’s rap sheet from the Clinton Administration was
LOOOOOOONG and well-known. No excuse for ANY Pubbie who
What a chicken-fluck.
Stupid is as stupid does, Johnny — frog and scorpion.
You’re dumber than a box of rocks if you didn’t know Holder slaughtered Americans before his current tenure.
FU Johnny Isakson!
Yet he will be back tomorrow voting for Marco Rubio (et al) and his illegal immigrant capitulation bill.
Johnny, you are out if I have anything to do with it. Screw you drunk.
What a weasel. He didn’t know that Holder was Reno’s go-to guy when the women and children in Waco were burned to death? When Elian Gonzalez was kidnapped by DOJ thugs from his uncle’s closet and sent back to Fidel Castro?
Obviously, the worst vote the conservatives in GA cast was voting for someone so ill-informed. He should be primaried ASAP.
“Its ruined my credibility in terms of being senator, Isakson said.
Fixed it for you, Johnny.
I regret your vote too, senator.
It’s really too bad for the rest of us that you, much like the rest of your party, is so staggeringly stupid.
Well, Johnny it wasn’t rocket science.
Our side seems to allow the Democrats their ‘creature appointments’ all too often.
John McCain never voted no on a SCOTUS appointee until a couple of years ago.
Their mindset is that the president deserves who he wants.
NO, he doesn’t! He deserves a decent qualified person that will be good for the nation. That’s all.
Predictable dope. He was probably button-holed by Lindsey Graham in the cloak room with words along the lines of “the president deserves to have who he wants in office. You should vote for Holder (even though the democrats had 59 votes at the time).”
Can you shout RINO, RINO, RINO!!! Get rid of him.
careful what you ask for. as soon as holder resigns, there will be a huge outcry to move on, and to call the case closed, that obama will end up skating.
the president deserves to have who he wants in office” stupidest premise I have ever heard regardless of president or party affiliation.
It is good to learn from your mistakes.
It is much better to learn from the mistakes of those who came before you.
Too bad we see too few of either in Washington.
Isakson says I did my due diligence”.
Holder had already shown himself to be a charlatan, a racist and a bender of the law when nincompoops like Isakson voted to approve his nomination as Attorney General.
Anyone who knew Holder’s past and listened to his words knew he was a slime-ball who would use the power of his office to further the leftist/racist aganda, get payback and subvert justice.
Yet they voted to make him Attorney General.
They are not excused from the damage Holder has done just because they are gullible or stupid.
“They are not excused from the damage Holder has done just because they are gullible or stupid.”
They saw how well Big Media defended their racist god’s defense:
“We’re portrayed by Republicans as either being lying or idiots. It’s actually closer to us being idiots.”
Congress should have know that Holder covered up OK city items, Waco, Clinton crimes, pardons, etc. Congress knew better.
Shut up, Johnny. And take your lifetime benefits with you.
Somethings going to come to a head,”
Senator Blutarsky, Please report to the Senate floor!
“Bluto: See if you can guess what I am now.
[puts a scoop of mashed potatoes in his mouth and hits his cheeks with his fists and spits it out]
Bluto: I’m a zit. Get it?”
He can just add that to his vote to give ILLEGALS amnesty soon. Maybe some will believe him in 2 years.
the president deserves to have who he wants in office
Well that’s Lindsey Graham’s usual line. Except of course when he decides to hold one of President Bush’s nominees for years because of a torture memo.

Learn your lessons, Johnny....
DO NOT VOTE WITH /FOR THESE LIBERAL PR*CKS EVER AGAIN....
You'd best think ahead, son....
The inevitable redux on Gun-grabs...
Budgets & debt ceiling....
Nothing THE DIM-DHIMMI-DEMS want to accomplish will be good for the country...
Simplifies your homework....
How about another supposed conservative Jeff Sessions who said “he was sure that Mr. Holder would be a responsible legal officer and not a politician. “
Has this idiot recanted his vote?

Senate Panel Approves Holder Nomination For AG
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he supports Holders view that the country needs to interrogate terrorism suspects based on American values.
I am confident this new attorney general will have a balanced approach and I look forward to working with him. I know hes made mistakes and so have I, Graham said.

USC to get new business building
Funds will come from leasing current building to Department of Justice
An estimated 250 Justice Department employees working in different locations near Washington, D.C., will be relocated to Columbia over an unspecified period.
Graham said U.S. taxpayers will save $42 million by having Justice Department employees working in South Carolina, which has lower costs than Washington.
It was almost too good to be true, Graham said of the plan. But it proved to be true.
Graham, a Republican, praised U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Deputy Attorney General David Ogden, both of whom were appointed by President Obama, a Democrat.
I cant thank Eric Holder and David Ogden enough, Graham said, adding they offered their support for a leasing plan that was initiated during the administration of George W. Bush.
Johnny Isakson epitomizes what ails the Georgia Republican Party.
I say to Isakson and others like him:"Okay - you screwed up. Now are you just going to whimper about it?
Or are you going to be man enough to get out in front, put everything on the line, and work hard to correct the asinine mistake you made and the damage you have done to the country?"
Don’t forget the FALN terrorists’ pardons:
Oh come on Johnny. Its probably not your worst vote. It would take a year to calculate your worst vote out of all the really really bad votes you have made.
Of course the vote for amnesty you are getting ready to make will eclipse confirming Holder.
Well FIX IT, a$$hole!
Begin the process to IMPEACH HOLDER!
Johnny, you can’t claim that you did your due diligence and that you’re now sorry for your vote.
Sorry, Johnny, but that just doesn’t make sense.
If you had apologized for not doing your due diligence, I could accept your apology, understanding that you are not worthy of your office.
But, having researched and voted “yes”, you are a willing accomplice.
Apology not accepted.
Isakson is a complete incompetent moron. It is an embarrassment to the Senate that he is there...if the losers in the senate can be embarrassed. Anyone with one functioning brain cell could have foreseen that the commie, holder, would forever be a commie.
You must be right because anyone with even one functioning brain cell can see the ridiculousness of this “apology” statement.
I think he’s trying to placate angry constituents.
I regret Isakson.
Hey Senator, pull your head out of your ass.
YOU created this mess.
We ALL knew about the FALN Terrorist and Marc Rich Pardons.
That was public knowledge from the Clinton Days.
Who the heck do you think you are kidding.
Does he base every vote on which way the wind is blowing, iow which way the cool kids are voting?
No, you didn't. We knew what Holder was before he was nominated to the post. You just chose not to listen to us and look at Holder's record, but instead did what McConnell told you to do.
Hey Johnny ... regret voting to bring the gun control bill up in the senate? You will.
I guaren-damn-tee ya you would NEVER vote to remove Holder or Obama.
Every white Republican is so scared to death of being called a “racist” they would have voted for confirmation for Mugabe if he was here.
They have REALLY got to get over being afraid of the race card. That fear is KILLING us.
