Yesterday, AG Eric Holder evaded questions and continued his stonewall on the House Judiciary Committee subpoena for thousands of documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal, which has claimed the lives of two sworn federal agents and hundreds of Mexicans. If he were a Republican AG, the news would dominate all media, with ABCNBCCBSCNNNYT all demanding to know what did the AG know, and when did he know it?
But because he is the first black Attorney General, and a Democrat, there is barely a peep beyond Fox News and the conservative media. It does not appear the John Boehner and Eric Cantor have the back of Darrell Issa, the courageous investigator pursuing the truth if it comes to a contempt citation coming to a vote. It is an election year, and who needs to raise the hackles of the race baiters, seems to be the thinking........"
Once again the ‘no balls’ Republicans, other than Issa, are raising hell about this and demanding answers and Eric Holders job.
If two or more would come forward together and tell the world they were being blackmailed, they would be joined by many in the media etc. I’m guessing.
I honestly don’t understand, if they are being blackmailed, why they don’t do a media scrum, as a group, and give as much evidence as they can.
Just by virtue of acting as a group, it would put the nail in the coffin over any possible blackmailing.
It may be embarassing for awhile, but no more than BO’s drug history. Edward’s and JJ’s illegitamate children and heaven koows what all the Kennedy’s have done.
Of course it is working
Unless CBS NBC ABC etc have it as a news item night after night ( like they would for a GOP Administration ) it never happened
If it wasn’t for the internet and talk radio NOBODY would know
It would, but because the would appear as a group, the outrage would also get diffused fairly quickly as well.
People here should write all the Republicans and perhaps suggest standing as a group and admitting such.
It's time to stop fooling around with this clown and act.
Now this perjurer is going to be leading the investigations into national security leaks. I do not like Romney but come on.
It’s working because gutless, ball-less Bonehead, and Cantor
would rather use it as a campaign issue, than actually do
something about it. For these hacks, it’s always about POWER,
If it weren’t for two GUN MAGAZINE WRITERS and the internet we wouldn’t be hearing ANY of this.
I find that pretty amazing.
We have a media culture so rotten, so utterly dedicated to NOT doing their jobs that they’re upstaged by:
1. A gift-store clerk (Drudge)
2. A college kid in a feather boa
3. Gun mag writers
Discourage ANYONE you know from using the Legacy Media.
She should be coaching the congressmen questioning Eric Holder or, better yet, she should be asking the questions.
I expect we will hear a lot more from her real soon. She has the guts to ask the tough questions.
Two weeks ago, I wrote my Congressman and complained that Republicans weren’t standing up to AG Holder and should be on every talk show and yelling from the Capitol steps because a Comtempt of Congress had not been issued.
He responded and thanked me for the kind words and encouraging message. A form letter that didn’t even fit the occasion!!!
GEEZ!! I am wasting my time!!!
I would not quit. Get in contact other Republicans politicians.
All you need to do is get a few aware that they don’t need to stand down.
Its half past time for a contempt order on this POS but he knows Tammy Faye Boehner does not have the spine to do it.
