As you probably know by now, the House of Representatives will vote this afternoon to determine whether U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is in contempt of Congress for obstruction of the Oversight Committee’s Fast and Furious investigation.
While those on the left are trying to spin this vote as election year politicking, the fact remains that it was Mr. Holder’s choice to refuse to produce requested documents for more than a year, stonewalling on every demand. Of course he ended up hiding under the umbrella of that ultimate refuge, President Obama’s grant of Executive Privilege.
For me, this is the very last straw. Some naifs are comparing Fast and Furious to Watergate, but there is no comparison. As Iowahawk so eloquentlyput it, F&F is “Watergate with toe tags.” If Holder had anything to do with it, he should be immediately fired and promptly prosecuted for the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Then he should be deported to Mexico to be tried for the murder of the 300 or so Mexican citizens who died because of this program.
But it’s not just that.
This man has been a problem from the moment he took office. This is a man who claims to believe that requesting a photo identification in order to vote is racist, and yet requires photo id to be presented when people come to see him.
This is a man who accused America of being cowards because we were afraid to talk about race.
This is a man who refers to African Americans as “my people“, disregarding the fact that he is the A.G. for the entire country, not just one segment of its population.
This is a man who refused to win a prosecution against members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation, choosing instead to simply drop the case and walk away.
In short, it really doesn’t matter how Congress votes today.
For most of America, Eric Holder is already beneath contempt.
