“Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said today that Americans need to stand up”
This from a guy who stood up for Eric Holder when he was confirmed to say a responsible legal officer and not a politician.?
Why should anyone support this knucklehead when he already showed his true colors?
When did he become a fortune teller?
Eric Holder was appointed as judge in the District in '88 by Ronny and by all accounts did his job most dutifully. Even prosecuted a Dem Congressman as well as being in on Rostenkowski's prosecution. He spent a good majority of his time in the private sector around D.C. and did well. It was when WJClinton appointed him Deputy AG that his inner Golem came out. From Sessions perspective at the time, he was a good choice.
In my case, it is because he is the best that AL has been able to put in the U.S. Senate. There aren't too many GOP U.S. Senators with stronger conservative voting records.
Now, having defended Sen. Sessions, I will say that I, too, wish he was more a pit bull like Chuck Schumer (D-NY). Sorry, it just is not in his nature. I wrote Sessions back in 2009 to tell him that I was absolutely opposed to Eric Holder and wanted his nomination killed in committee. Sessions wrote back with the opinion that every POTUS has the right to nominate who he prefers, i.e., an automatic approval by the Senate committee. Sessions did vote against Holder when the nomination was brought before the whole Senate.
I like Sessions very much, but his 1st vote in the Senate committee always bothered me. It seems he prefers to fight by gentleman rules while the Dems are nothing but jailhouse brawlers.
Holder was going to get confirmed. I don’t think Jeff Sessions compliment, is why Holder turned out to be a tyrant.
