'Race card' Holder is a disgrace
My guess is that serious Democrats have to be horrified with AG Holder's comments about being treated "different." We are watching an Attorney General who has no respect for the office he holds. He is acting like a partisan street politician rather than the top law enforcement officer in the US!
I agree with how John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky describe AG Holder's tenure:
"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.”
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."
And no other Attorney General has ever accused his critics of "racism".
Remember Janet Reno? Remember how she got treated after Waco '93? Do you recall AG Reno saying that she was being treated differently because she is a woman? On the contrary, she took responsibility for Waco and answered questions.
How about Alberto Gonzalez, the first Hispanic AG. Did he "whine" about being treated differently?
From "Fast & Furious" to the "IRS," AG Holder has shown a preference for his side rather than the rule of law. He targeted Arizona but looked the other way when California & Illinois issued driver's license to people in the US without papers.
On top of that, he has accused Texas and other states of "racism" because we want to protect the integrity of the election laws.
My father once told me that you can survive corrupt politicians but not a police chief. In other words, those entrusted to enforce the law can not be corrupt or the whole system collapses.
Frankly, President Obama could do the country, and especially his administration, a big favor by telling AG Holder to spend more time with his family and leave public service.
