“Holder will be remembered as the most corrupt Attorney General in history and as the man who did the most to violate the civil rights of American citizens since the late FBI Director J Edgar Hoover. Despite his misconduct Hoover got a building named after him so at some future date I guess we’ll see the ‘Eric Holder Sewage Plant’ or some such construct. The Democratic and Republican crime gangs afford each other these little courtesies, after all.”
Well, so far as we know, Eric is not a cross-dresser like the old boss of Fart, Barf & Itch. But, then, there’s been no Republican Watergate to spur the recalcitrant snooze media into reporting on Eric’s private life. They have enough trouble reporting his public one. Don’t miss the photo at the link above of Eric probing his nose for a booger.
UPDATE: Holder was just the latest incompetent legal crony to hold the office. And the fact that he is one of the president’s closest friends tells you all you need to know about Wormtongue.
Conservative and libertarian pundits like to say Eric Holder is among the most corrupt and racist attorneys general in U.S. history. He’s a bozo, alright, but that’s a lot of attorneys general.
I suspect many of his white predecessors were more racist. Even so-called liberal AG Robert Kennedy authorized the wiretapping of Dr. King. But corrupt? So I went to the tale of the tape, as a certain deceased sportscaster used to say.
The closest tape is Wikipedia—which I support even when I don’t agree with its content because it’s nice to have an encyclopedia on the Web and even the printed ones can be biased—and its historical recitation of federal political scandals suggests that, so far, Holder is an amateur when it comes to corruption, at least.
True, the Wikipedia entry does manage to ignore Holder’s department’s secret subpoena of phone records of the Associated Press and spying on Fox News—you can find the info if you click through to his profile, however.
But even after you include his contempt of Congress citation over failure to answer questions about the Fast & Furious gun-running scheme to Mexico, Holder has a long way to go to catch up with his contemptible predecessors in the Reagan, Nixon, Harding and Grant administrations.
Given his recent push to ignore a Supreme Court ruling and try to tell Texas how to hold elections (good luck with that, bozo), not to mention trying to try George Zimmerman twice (now that’s racism!), I’m betting that Holder will be up there with the superstars of racism and corruption by the next presidential go round in 2016.
Poe: So Arizona, since the federal government fails to secure the border, desperately passed laws to protect its own people. The law is supported by 70% of the people in Arizona, 60% of all Americans and % of all Hispanics, according to the Wall Street Journal/NBC poll done just this week. And I understand that you may file a lawsuit against the law. It seems to me the administration ought to be enforcing border security and immigration laws and not challenge them and that the administration is on the wrong side of the American people. Have you read the Arizona law?
Holder: I have not had a chance to—I’ve glanced at it. I have not read it.
Poe: It’s 10 pages. It’s a lot shorter than the health care bill, which was 2,000 pages long. I’ll give you my copy of it, if you would like to—to have a copy.
Can anybody in Obamalot play this game? Read it all here.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, the man who helped Bad Bill Clinton with the quid pro quo for a crooked financier’s presidential pardon back in 2000, apparently is going to be Obamalot’s racial grievance peddler. Holder is proof that no matter how often they receive preferential treatment or how high they rise, some American blacks never quit whining about racism. Well, there is this to look forward to: four years of this shuck from a presidential administration should just about do it for the subject.
Or, rather, the first facillitator of crooks: Barry’s apparent nominee for attorney general. Eric Holder, Slick Willie’s pardon-adviser. Well, he is black, and all that.
