Eric Holder just proved himself to be as ridiculously arrogant and obnoxious as his employer, President Obama. In a press conference on Tuesday Attorney General Holder spoke defiantly about his tenure as the AG. He blasted his GOP critics for daring to claim that he had “politicized” the Department of Justice.
“It’s a little irresponsible for people on the hill to say that policy differences that we have with them … can be characterized as political,” Mr. Holder said, Mediaite reported. “There’s been no politicization of this Justice Department.”
Then he took a page out of President Obama’s textbook by claiming that the DOJ he had inherited was politicized and he’s spent the last 6 years fixing it!
“This notion that seems to permeate … that somehow this Justice Department has been politicized is totally inconsistent with the facts,” he said, an ABC News video showed. “You want to look at a Justice Department that’s been politicized, you look at the one I inherited. You look at the way in which hiring was done here for political reasons, you look at all the other things we had to deal with to rebuild.”
“I will leave this department in the way I found it when I came here back in 1976 — with high moral, with people who are dedicated to doing things only on the basis of the facts and the law,” he said in the ABC News video. “I’m proud of the historic things we have done. I hope the American people would not fall prey to interesting sound bites that are simply not consistent with facts.”
Thank you, Eric Holder, for being willing to prove that you are indeed just as big of a tool as President Obama! Congratulations and good riddance.
