Eric Holder, Obama's Attorney General is the most corrupt and incompetent Attorney General since Nixon's A.G. John Mitchell during the Watergate era. Not only has Holder made it clear that the Department of Justice would not prosecute blacks accused of violating the Voting Rights Act, but Holder and his top officials mislead Congress in the investigation of the Fast and Furious scandal where guns were allowed to go to criminals resulting in the deaths of Brian Terry, Border Patrol Agent and scores of others in Mexico.
On top of that toss in Holder's continued insistence on removing dangerous terrorists from Guantanamo Bay and giving them a possible get out of jail free card in American courts and you have an Attorney General and Justice Department that are dangerously out of touch with the American people.
And when the stuff hits the fan, as it has recently over Holder's misleading statements before Congress (Bush A.G. Alberto Gonzales resigned for far less) Holder cannot justify his actions so instead goes on the attack making the most vile and slanderous accusations against his critics. In a recent article in the New York Times Holder fired back:
Of that group of critics, Mr. Holder said he believed that a few — the “more extreme segment” — were motivated by animus against Mr. Obama and that he served as a stand-in for him. “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” he said, “both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”
Once again, we're back to the old canard that if you disagree or criticize a black Democrat you are a racist. Note that none of this ever applied to the blizzard of lies and innuendo directed at Herman Cain. How unseemly is it for an Attorney General (and a President who presumably winks and nods at such statements) to use this kind of heated, racialist rhetoric instead of try to build a factual case to defend their actions? Well, we know that there are few facts that can defend either Holder or Obama so I guess that explains it!
