Eric Holder: Palin Wasn't a Good VP Candidate, Even Worse Judge of Who Should Be Impeached
ABC News' This Week ^ | July 13, 2014 | Pierre Thomas, Mike Levine, Jack Date and Jack Cloherty

Posted on 07/13/2014 1:11:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

Attorney General Eric Holder is challenging Republicans who are calling for his and President Obama's impeachment, and denouncing what he calls a "gridlocked Washington" stalled by what he says is a Republican Party bent on blocking any of the administration's efforts.

“For whatever reason, [some] Republicans decided early on that this was a president they were just simply not going to cooperate with,” Holder said in a rare interview with ABC News' Pierre Thomas. "And over the past five-and-a-half years, we have seen demonstrations of that, where the president has reached out his hand, offered compromises that have simply not been met [in the way] they have been in the past by a Republican Party willing to do the appropriate things."

Administration efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform, for example, have failed. Asked about calls by Sarah Palin to impeach Obama over the administration’s immigration policies, Holder said: “She wasn't a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She's an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”(continued)

Eric Holder: Palin Wasn't a Good VP Candidate

She was the sole non-dickhead among the entire (R) and (D) tickets. Maybe you have to be a dickhead to be a "good" candidate.

Why do the Socialist/Democrats keep on bringing up the meaningless name of the feckless Sarah Palin?

Are they deranged?

well, one thing is for sure: Holder is totally unfamiliar with the topic of impeachment, since he can’t recognize the need for it when it’s right in front of his nose.

Both the Left and and the Right Elites hate her for not sitting down and shutting up -- you know, like conservatives are supposed to do.

God bless her. There isn't a current TP/right/conservative pol who doesn't owe her, big time.

"... and denouncing what he calls a "gridlocked Washington" stalled by what he says is a Republican Party bent on blocking any of the administration's efforts."

What we'll probably never hear Constitution-ignoring Holder acknowledge is that the Founding States made the Constitution to permanently gridlock the federal government.

If McCain hadn't picked an eloquent conservative like Palin, someone who knew how to talk to Americans, he would have captured zero states.

He almost won, despite himself. Putting a hold on his campaign to head back to Washington and get TARP going killed him.

I think that’s because it was an interview on “This Week” and they gave all the staffers credit or some such.

Well he SHOULD know what it takes to be impeached.
His special squads are intimidating and eliminating those who could do something.
I wonder. Has Holder gotten into the bunker mentality like Saddam Hussein yet, sleeping in different safe houses every night?

Eric Holder: Palin Wasn't a Good VP Candidate,...

You reveal how skewed your idea of good is, Eric. Sarah Palin brought in at least 5 million votes McLame would otherwise not have received.

Eric Holder is a traitor, liar, Communist and saboteur. He should be charged, arrested, prosecuted, found guilty and hung for the offenses listed above.

“He was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to serve as a judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and United States Attorney.”

http://www.therichest.com/celebnetworth/celeb/eric-holder-net-worth/

I did not know that.

His net worth is listed at $11.5m. I guess that doesn’t include his wife’s net worth.

She’s the only reason I voted for McCrap. I was set on voting for Bob Barr. If he’s talking about Sarah Palin that means she’s living in his mind (and it’s probably not her rack that he’s thinking about).

Eric Holder should be arrested and impeached - in that order.

And I’d like to hear a reporter ask him if his leaving the Mexican border wide open (and refusing to enforce US laws as well as the Constitution’s DEMAND that the feds protect the individual states from foreign invasion) means he’s realized he was wrong to forcibly take Elian Gonzalez away from his family and deport him back to Cuba.

He did that within an hour of receiving a phone call from Obama.

Bush did a 180 on that same day and gave an address to the nation saying that Armageddon was upon us if we didn’t pass TARP.

Kevin Freeman has written a book strongly suggesting that the Sept 2008 run on the bank was a terrorist attack, and that Muslims and communists had long been preparing the foundation for just such an attack to be effect, through the actions of a corrupt Congress.

McCain is bad news, but I do believe there was something in what Obama told McCain that day - and in what somebody told Bush that day - that told them that resistance was futile. I believe someone communicated on that day that the electronic run on the bank was planned by Soros and his allies and that they would do it again and collapse the entire world economy unless Obama was allowed to illegally usurp our White House.

And I believe there were OTHER CRITICAL people who were also threatened - either with threats of financial collapse, or with more personal threats...

Some of the bad we’re seeing is just scummy people, but some of it is the crimes of this regime and its handlers.

Out of one side of liberals’ mouth Sarah Palin is the stupidest human being ever. Incompetent, ignorant, and not worth listening to in any context.

YET. Sarah Palin can single handedly drive the news cycle and have EVERY pundit talking about something she says in a tween or facebook post. She OWNS these guys and plays them like puppets. I love it.

Is the same Eric Holder who has declared it illegal to make fun of the president?

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jul/13/doj-investigates-obama-presidential-library-parade/

The same one who should have been impeached long ago himself, for being found in contempt of court for refusing to give over documents in the fast and furious investigation?
