Contemptible Me

The contemptible Attorney General Eric Holder is losing friends among his fearless leader's party. Utah's Democratic Representative Jim Matheson announced his plan to join with Republicans who will vote Holder in contempt of Congress this Thursday for obstructing the investigation by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform into Operation Fast and Furious, in which ATF operatives (under the auspices of the Justice Department) sold weapons to Mexican drug cartels at the cost of hundreds of innocent lives.

"Sadly, it seems that it will take holding the attorney general in contempt to communicate that evasiveness is unacceptable," Matheson told the Salt Lake Tribune.

And Matheson will bring fellow Democrats with him. According to the Associated Press, Rep. Steny Hoyer, the Democratic House Minority Whip, expects more donkey defections, though he refused to say how many.

The AP adds that the National Rifle Association will "score the vote." The Obama media may find it ironic that the NRA is helping to unmask the culprits responsible for illegal assault weapon sales. They shouldn't. The NRA represents the interests of normal, law-abiding gun owners. The contemptible Obama administration, on the other hand, represents the interests of armed, murderous Mexican drug cartels.

"The reason we support the contempt resolution," said the NRA in a letter to Congress, "is the same reason we first called for Attorney General Holder's resignation more than a year ago: the [Justice] Department's obstruction of congressional oversight of a program that costs lives in support of an anti-gun agenda," said the NRA.

Guns don't kill people; anti-Second Amendment fanatics in Washington do ... and by the hundreds.

The reality of Fast and Furious is so visible that even some Democrats are joining to force a contempt charge,

The truly sad thing about this is that some Democrats refuse to do what is right. They stick to covering for Holder .The Democrats are not a party of politicians, they are a cult of corrupt traitors. I wish I knew how they can sleep at night.

“O” and all his creatures behave as if the law-of-the-land, long standing and established rules and regulations, the Constitution, the Legislative process, accountability to the American voters, etc. are mere inconvenient, tedious and incidental obstacles to them and their plans.

They make their plans and recklessly steam-roll over every one and everything which they regard as an obstacle. WHAT a mentality!!!

I always wonder what would the Unite States would BE if this mentality was the accepted (prefered) approach to governance from the time of our founding.

He^%...we’d be no better than or different from the very ‘old Europe’ tyranies the Colonists rejected! THAT is assuming that we would EVEN have survived as an autonomous national entity.

One thing the world knows for sure: If you permit a despot to take the reins of your government (by whatever means) he will NOT ever recognize an authority above or beyond himself; he will NOT ever observe the merest pretense of ‘reprsentative government’; he will degrade and dehumanize every single thing within his reach, etc. ...this list goes on ad infinitum.

Most importantly, he will NEVER leave except by force and THEN will be replaced ONLY by someone as bad or worse than he was. THAT is born out consistently throughout history.
