Holder to Issa: Your conduct as a member of Congress is really pretty shameful, you know

Well, this is rich. The guy who happens to be in contempt of Congress for unresolved questions and stonewalling over a deadly gunwalking scandal, and whose department is currently under investigation for tapping into a wide swath of AP journalists’ phone records — and who conveniently just can’t seem to remember when it was the he recused himself from what he acknowledges is that very serious case — has zero reservations about dishing out scoldings for other people’s ostensibly unacceptable behavior.

He was backed by Sheila Jackson Lee who wouldn’t keep her racist mouth shut. She kept interrupting along with another black Rep. and demanding that the panel have more respect for the AG.

I was livid!

Hubris (pron.: /ˈhjuːbrɪs/), also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.

Ya gotta give them credit. Those Leroy’s stick together.

If Republicans stuck together like that we could get rid of this bunch of slime.

I watched it and Issa took the scolding calmly. I would have told that mother lover about shame and his great part in it.

I believe he was referring to the developing scandal regarding his role in allowing for the tapped lines and email intercepts of the L/MSM personnel.
Yeah. With all the scandals coming forth, it is tough to keep up with the fine points regarding each one. :)

Issa should have calmly said

and then moved to the next item on the agenda.

Eric Holder: Gun Owners Should ‘Cower’ In Shame Like Smokers.

**********

Gun owners don’t cower and smokers don’t spend money in restaurants and bars etc where they aren’t wanted. That’s not cowering....it’s revenge.

I guess it all comes down to class and intelligence. The liberals have none. The liberals also feel no shame because they have no conscience.

************************************EXCERPT*******************************************

The display during an otherwise mostly tame Judiciary Committee hearing this afternoon exploring a range of controversies surrounding the Obama administration was exceptionally contentious and dramatic.

Issa should have held him in contempt.

As someone said on another thread, Holder can't stand "uppity white folks." I'm pretty sure Issa has a very good memory. He keeps his cool and chooses his battles carefully. Holder won't like what lies ahead.

During Issa’s next press meeting he should not forget to say loudly to whomever is interviewing him to send a message to Eric the protector of the new Black Panthers. Like “blow it out your ass”.

Issa replied that the messages on the emails were not shown because Holder didn’t want the information known to the Senate, and he was dead right. Where is the shame in being right, and why isn’t Holder ashamed for withholding information.

As for Jackson Lee, that is the most empty head in Congress the only thing in it is racism.

Their rude interrupting behavior is an indicator of how desperate and scared they are. The more afraid they are, the more likely they will blurt something out. The more likely they are to go off script. The more likely they are to turn on each other. Someone will crack. How many of them are going to willingly crawl under the bus? Some will, but not all.

I’m hoping this is an indicator that Issa knows he’s right and Holder is going down. Holder is interrupting because he’s panicked.

I listened to coverage of this exchange on NPR tonight. Interesting. They explained why Holder interrupted. They never explained what Issa was saying. No bias there. /s But at least they are covering it.

Some will jump ship, but people like SJL will hang on for dear life. Jackson Lee is a racist. I never see her demand respect for a white man.

They are panicked and you are right, someone is going to mess up. They have no patience. In obama’s oresser with Cameron he unwittingly gave us a timeline to work with and that was a gift that will keep on giving.
