11 ... 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?

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.

Still backing Sessions’ “gentlemenly demeanor” while the man he voted for is destroying this country?

We need a Ted-Cruz style of engagement, not a go-along-with-it type. Jeff Sessions did this country no service by not directly attacking Holder’s known politicized record.

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.”

Actually they do have rules they abide by, number one being absolutely no hitting below the belt. Rule number two is all dims wear their belt as a headband. Rule number three is all Republicans wear their belt as an ankle bracelet.
