Milbank implied to Al Sharpton that the GOP has not politically targeted HHS Secretary Sebelius because she is white
During a segment on Thursday's Politics Nation with Al Sharpton, frequent guest Dana Milbank insinuated that the GOP only has issues with Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama because the GOP is racist. During a segment with Sharpton and MSNBC's Karen Finney about Kathleen Sebelius resigning, Milbank wondered why the Republicans on the Hill do not target her more considering she was the one who implemented Obamacare.
... so let's compare Holder to Kathleen Sebelius, who has presided over Obamacare which is the thing that has most antagonized the Right and the Republicans over all these years. You're not seeing calls for her impeachment, you're not seeing the same level of personal vitriol. So I think, that's why again it's fair to ask the question, and let every individual say why it is that they have that particular antipathy toward this attorney general and toward this president and why not, say, toward Kathleen Sebelius who they're obviously at odds with.
Milbank's own employer, The Washington Post, had an article in October of 2013 naming more than thirty House Republicans who were calling for Sebelius to resign.
The GOP should call on the black caucus to help take down Sebilius.
No matter how hard I try, I can never even begin to think like a leftist. Even if I pretend to, the “logic” is so convoluted that any thinking individual would go nuts trying to figure out their mindset.
Fools, just stunningly foolish. It is now obvious the ONLY thing left in the quiver is RACISM! Reckoning is approaching fellas and this is evidence that judging distance in a dark tunnel as the train approaches is not a very easy thing to do.
Just keep standing between the tracks Dana. You will see the light both before and after the train passes.
To me, at least, she seems much more to be arrogant and incompetent, with known values from when she was appointed...much moreso that flatly criminal and corrupt.
That's what I was thinking. Even "our" GOP politicians can't be that dumb. They should be going after Sebelius, right now. Obama and the black caucus won't defend her like they do brothers and sisters. Send her to jail. Then, when they support Holder etc, point out the hypocrisy.
Lois Lerner must have some African in her, then if the GOP is after her. /sarcasm
Falling asleep with the radio on last night and drowsily thought I heard a newscaster say she was going to resign. Any truth to that?
You’re right. Very different circumstance.
He must mean Wapoo won’t go after her.

Opps it’s a She
She’s been thrown to the wolves as a distraction. Obozo and Holder are so incompetent that they welcome diversions such as this.
Sebilius has resigned.
So the Right hounds this woman for months because of her inept “management”, she finally gives up and resigns (is forced out) and the charge is that we won’t go after her because she’s white. What does Milbank want us to do, go to her house with torches?
Wow! They never quit. Play the race card at every turn. Unreal.
Okay, I get it. Race is why the House is going to let Lerner off scott free.
All the more reason they should go after Sebelius BECAUSE she is white. Make an example of her and then turn the guns were they need to be directed.
Could that possibly be because congress cannot impeach a cabinet official?
That is their exact intent and strategy. Confuse the idiots, frustrate the thinking, and walk away as they ponder what you just sad or did.
Facts don’t matter to Leftists
They have no understanding of the Tea Party at all.
Now IS the time to strike!
Kind of like the commie ‘RATS going after the TEA Party because the majority of them ARE WHITE, right Dana? Grow up and lighten up Milbank. You idiot.
We're using them?? It goes both ways. This chick will relax in comfort with some ridiculous pension.
She never cared about one damn person throughout this scheme.
The Constitution, Article II, Section 4:
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
Question: What race is Lois Lerner?
That Milbank would even say this (especially since he KNOWS it’s untrue) shows that Dana Milbank is a racist. Period.
(But then, of course he’s a racist — he’s a liberal.)
They need to sic Herman Cain, Allen West, Alan Keyes, Michael Steele, J.C. Watts, Ken Blackwell, and others on him. Take his racist butt down.
IMHO, Sebilius is resigning in order to protect herself from any kind of prosecution.
Out of office=Get out of jail card.
The only thing Mad Mikey Savage is right about is that “Liberalism is a mental disorder”. It is impossible to rationally deal with an irrational person.
It's easy once you understand that it's all agitprop.
Just say anything that will put your opponent on the defensive or that will change the frame of the issue. The more outrageous, the better it is. The goal is to split the opposition by dividing the response into those who are flustered by the comment, and those who accept the new frame and try to respond.
Then you make a new outrageous charge against the response to the first outrageous charge.
She should be prosecuted just to ensure that she gets absolutely NO retirement or benefits and above all - NO HEALTHCARE!
These ass hats must have just opened their 5 millionth deck of race cards.
Sebelius comes across just as you stated.
The BIG question I have, is what the hell is with Kansas to have elected such an airhead as Governor?
Sebelius was nothing more than a token dumb creepyass cracka, used to make nobama look smart, just like Say It Ain’t So Joe..
When the only tool you have left is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
The far left fringe continues to surprise me. Sebelius is the author of an employer mandate that tramples freedom of religion, an act of supreme evil that earns her a place among the most wicked people in the history of our country. She is uniformly hated by decent people, and we would all be thrilled to see her prosecuted for any and all crimes she has committed. The difference between her and Holder or Obama is that we know the long list of laws violated by the AG and the occupant of our White House, while we lack a specific charge (as far as I know) to file against the HHS tyrant. The differences in our approaches to Sebelius and to Holder/Obama have nothing to do with skin color (as they well know) and everything to do with our residual respect for the rule of law - we don’t have a crime to charge that evil woman with.
If you can impeach a former cabinet member, I'm surprised Pelosi didn't try to impeach Dick Cheney. Probably never heard of Belknap.
Custer was involved in exposing Belknap, a competent General during the war.
You’re right, incompetence of Sebelius kind isn’t a crime.
