The Obama Administration would rather talk 'maps' than 'jobs'
Here they come again. Attorney General Holder is at war with Texas again:
"Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday that the Justice Department is opening a new front in the battle for voter protections, a response to the Supreme Court ruling that he said dealt a major setback to the Voting Rights Act.
In a speech to the National Urban League in Philadelphia, Holder said that as its first move, the department is asking a federal court in San Antonio to require the state of Texas to obtain advance approval before putting future political redistricting changes in place.
The attorney general called the Voting Rights Act "the cornerstone of modern civil rights law" and said that "we cannot allow the slow unraveling of the progress that so many, throughout history, have sacrificed so much to achieve."
The Supreme Court, on a 5-4 vote, threw out the most powerful part of the landmark Voting Rights Act, the law that became a major turning point in black Americans' struggle for equal rights and political power."
The Obama administration is once again attempting to distract minorities by banging the drums of racism. They'd rather do that than explain the high minority unemployment rates, the lousy pubic schools that blacks and Hispanics have to send their kids to, and all of the Bush policies that he did not overturn.
Attorney General Holder is a disgrace. He should spend his time investigating the IRS and "Fast & Furious."
The Supreme Court already spoke. However, that does not mean much to President Obama and Attorney General Holder!
