Holder’s Days As AG Numbered
Fast & Furious A Blatant Miscarriage Of Justice
General Eric Holder obviously doesn't care that two American agents
have been shot dead with guns Holder ordered to be placed in the hands
of Mexican drug gangs. But 35 members of Congress care a lot - that's how many of them have now called for the AG's resignation.
Members of Congress
who have previously called for Holder’s immediate resignation include:
Rep. Connie Mack, Rep. Walter Jones, Rep. Dan Burton, House
Transportation Committee chairman Rep. John Mica, House Small Business
Committee chairman Rep. Sam Graves and Reps. Ted Poe, Blake Farenthold,
Louie Gohmert, Quico Canseco, Rodney Alexander, Paul Gosar, Allen West,
Tim Huelskamp, Mike Pompeo, Duncan Hunter, Devin Nunes, Dennis Ross,
Trent Franks, Lynn Jenkins, Raul Labrador, Joe Walsh, Gus Bilirakis,
Paul Broun, Randy Hultgren, Stephen Fincher, John Culberson, Michael
Grimm, Andy Harris, Mike Coffman, Kenny Marchant, Thaddeus McCotter,
Diane Black, Bob Latta and Vicky Hartzler.
But this line from the bottom of the article says what those people are up against. No Democrats have called for Holder’s resignation yet.
silence is reprehensible. It's bad enough keeping your mouth shut when
the AG lets thugs get away with terrorizing Philadelphia voters simply
because the thugs are black - but letting Holder off the hook for two deaths (border
agent Brian Terry and ATF undercover agent Jaime Zapata) is going too
far. Obviously, the Dems are counting on the public's ignorance of this
case - a condition made possible by the media's flat refusal to
publicize it. It's had an effect. When I had lunch last week with two
friends and asked them what they thought of Fast and Furious, both
instantly replied that they weren't into Vin Diesel movies.
it's a dangerous move to count on that ignorance lasting forever. It's
one thing to turn away from racist thugs in Philadelphia - it's another
thing entirely to ignore two Americans lying dead in a pool of blood,
both killed by guns Holder ordered to be placed in the hands of their
murderers. No, Fast and Furious is a scandal that is not going away.
And the longer it lingers, the worse it gets. When the public finally
does become aware of it, their anger will be all the more furious
because of the subterfuge surrounding it. At that point, the Community
Organizer will realize his AG has become a dangerous piece of baggage
ticking ominously in the hold of the President's campaign bus.
that President Obama hopes to accept his Party's re-nomination next
September in Charlotte, N.C., I'd calculate that next June will be the
time period when his "good friend Holder" joins granny under the wheels.
