Sarah Palin vs. Eric Holder – It Gets Ugly

For most of his tenure as Attorney General, Eric Holder has bemoaned the “politicization” of his office. He is quick to blame Republicans for his many, many, MANY problems. He whines about political attacks from the right and cries about Republican concerns for the multitude of scandals that the Obama administration has endured (some would say for the amount of scandals the Obama administration has perpetrated).

But now, Holder shows his true colors by choosing to plant both of his feet right in the middle of a “political” debate.

In a recent interview with ABC News he decided to step WAY out on a limb to defend his buddy, the President. He did so by blaming literally every problem of the last five years on the Republicans in Congress (he seems to forget that for the first two of those 5 years Democrats controlled BOTH Houses of Congress).

“For whatever reason, [some] Republicans decided early on that this was a president they were just simply not going to cooperate with,” Holder said in a rare interview with ABC News’ Pierre Thomas. “And over the past five-and-a-half years, we have seen demonstrations of that, where the president has reached out his hand, offered compromises that have simply not been met [in the way] they have been in the past by a Republican Party willing to do the appropriate things.”

EricHolder2Yeah, it’s all the GOP’s fault.

He even got uber-political by talking bad about someone who isn’t even a politician anymore.

Former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been making waves recently by calling for the impeachment of President Obama. After running through a litany of crimes that the Obama administration has committed Governor Palin says this,

Barack Obama’s administration is proving itself a festering boil of scandal. The Constitution is rock solid in holding the president responsible for the executive branch. He can’t just vote “present” while shrugging and feigning ignorance about all these abuses of the public trust, any more than a mob boss can claim innocence because he didn’t personally do the hit. The buck stops with the guy at the top.

Impeachment is the ultimate check on an out-of-control executive branch. It is serious, not to be used for petty partisan purposes; and it is imperative that it becomes a matter of legitimate discussion before the American people lose all trust in our federal government.

Impeachment requires moral courage to advance what is right, and it requires political will. A complacent or disheartened electorate may silently endure these abuses from the administration, the permanent political class is only too happy to maintain the status quo, and the mainstream media is not a fair watchdog. So, the nation’s last line of defense is for We the People to rise up and say, “enough is enough.”

So yeah, the Obama administration wasn’t happy. And Mr. Holder took it upon himself to defend the administration from her too.

“She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

So Eric Holder thinks that millions of Americans who wholeheartedly agree with Palin and believe that she was an excellent VP candidate are morons. But it’s the GOP politicizing the Attorney General’s job?

Eric Holder is not fit to be Attorney General and he hasn’t been since day one. He should have been impeached several times over and has only survived because the President has been derelict in his duty and continued to defend Holder despite the harm he’s done our country. President Obama has chosen loyalty to his staff over loyalty to his nation, and AG Holder has chosen loyalty to President Obama over honoring his commitment to our nation as well.

Both men likely deserve impeachment and both men will likely never be impeached. That’s politics in America today, sad as it is…
