Last week US Attorney General Eric Holder displayed astounding arrogance in being questioned about his partisan incompetence and belligerence during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee.
Afterwards, as we reported here, he ran off to cry like a whining baby before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN). His immature actions further exemplified someone who is not only unqualified to hold the position of America’s top law enforcement official but of someone bereft, utterly devoid of a reputable character to take personal responsibility for his failures. Eric Holder showed himself to be a whining victim reflective of what liberal progressive policies have created in the black community — and it was embarrassing.
From a professional perspective we turn to an article written in the NY Post by John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky, “A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.”
They bring out points the mindless lemmings at the NAN would never comprehend: Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex marriage. Legal changes are achieved through legislation, not through a sudden whim not to enforce them. No other attorney general has acted in this manner. Holder clearly believes he has the inherent power to politicize his department.
