Eric Holder Blasts Sarah Palin, Says Some Obama Critics Are Racists
Newsmax ^ | 13/7/14

Posted on 07/13/2014 3:01:36 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

Attorney General Eric Holder slammed former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin Sunday, saying she is neither a very good legal scholar nor an effective vice presidential candidate.

He also said he believed that some critics of the president attack him because he is the nation's first black president.

Fielding a question about Palin's call last week to impeach President Obama, Holder told ABC's “This Week” that the former vice president candidate "wasn't a particularly good vice presidential candidate (in 2008). She's an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why."

Palin is only part of a growing Republican chorus calling for Obama’s impeachment for everything from his handling of the spike in illegal border crossings to excessive use of executive orders in healthcare and other areas.

"For whatever reason, (some) Republicans decided early on that this was a president they were just simply not going to cooperate with," Holder said. "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."

Holder also blasted House Republicans’ plans to sue Obama over executive changes made to Obamacare.

"It's a more, I think, a political gesture than a truly legal one," Holder said. "Filing a lawsuit against the president that has no basis is not going to improve the quality of life for the American people."

Holder said that he believed that Obama is subject to "a certain level of vehemence" that is partly racial.

"You know, people talking about taking their country back," Holder said. "There's a certain racial component to this for some people....

Eric Holder criticizing anyone else’s grasp of the law is quite hilarious.

“I have to tell you Sen. Obama is a decent person and a person you don’t have to be scared of as president of the United States. He’s a decent family man [and] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign’s all about.” ~Senator John McCain, October 10, 2008

Laughable. If anyone has been racist as Atty General it’s been this bigot.

Would love to see his transcripts and test scores. Bet he’s just like the Obambis, pushed thru the system just becoz of their race.

We need a Venn diagram. With so many critics of Obama, and so many racists, there is bound to be some overlap. Unless he is saying that all critics of Obama are racists, he really has no point!

What a whiner. Why is it nobody in this administration can take one to the chops (metaphorically speaking) without crying about it?

Politics is a big boy game, Mr. Holder. Either put on your big boy pants or go home.

Given that

1. this opinion is also held by Mark Levin, and
2. Levin possesses more knowledge about the law and the Constitution in his little finger than Eric the Red does in his entire body...

The nod goes to Gov Palin.

Sarah Palin was the ONLY good part of the Republican ticket in 2008. I voted for her, not Juan McLame. Had she been given the freedom to attack dumbo as she’d wanted, he might have lost, but “wiser heads” called her off and muzzled her.

Glad he’s not a political attorney general /s

Any republican AG talking like this would have to resign, and there would be a demand for a special prosecutor.

Plus they are all leftist racist kooks in that administration. Reading racism into every criticism. Well excuuuuuse me.

What conservative would criticize a conservative black administration - none.

Isn’t it touching how our AG defends vote fraud in the name of racism. Oy.

Looks like the poll numbers are dropping for Obama so its’ time to access the ‘white guilt’ and start claiming racism.

Is Holder really suggesting we would be ok with the ACA, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the border situation, FAst and Furious, and endless executive orders etc etc if the President were white? Think about that logic?

Eric Holder is a racist, and has demostrated it again and again.

Obama is a racist, and has demonstrated it again and again.

Literally everyone who voted for Obama is a racist, because they voted for him based on their own perception of his race.

Thanks Eleutheria5.

I was a Freeper on the ground that day in a Minnesota high school gym when he spewed that load of feces.

A friend and I each volunteered 40 hours at the phone bank to get our tickets.

When Azzhat McCain made that statement, I knew we were sold out. The whole place erupted and I screamed my voice raw. A brave woman there also asked about his Muslim heritage. She was made to be out a racist in the evening news.

I will never forget that day. It was the day I figured out that America died and we are just peons. *sigh*

Speaking of racism...

Did you know that the 97% of black voters who cast their ballot for Obama did so because of his towering intellect, great experience and distinguished record - not because of his (and their) black skins.

The “racist” meme again.

Anyone who opposes the wishes, desires, impulses, childishness, and/or nonsense of any Black person anywhere, for any reason at all, is a “racist.”

And White Liberal America sucks this crap up like Mother’s Milk.
