Well, I've decided that it's time for the attorney general to do the president and the country an important service and step down. Now I don't say that lightly and I don't say it because his political affiliation being different than mine. I've come to refer to him not as simply Eric Holder, but Eric "With-holder" because he has become the master of withholding documents, information, and truth from the House, the Senate, and the American public. In an administration that pledged transparency, the Department of Justice has operated not merely opaquely, but behind the stone walls of stone-walling. After 18 months, numerous hearings, and threats of contempt of Congress charges regarding the disastrous Fast and Furious program that used American taxpayer money to buy guns, put them in the hands of Mexican drug dealers, he has released just over 7,000 documents of 140,000 that Congress has requested. 300 Mexicans are dead, and one American border patrol agent is dead. He has yet to answer what he knew and when he knew it about this disgusting fiasco.
Now while he arms Mexican drug lords on the Arizona border, he sues the state of Arizona for simply attempting to do what the federal agencies have miserably failed to do-protect our borders. He has sued Florida because that state is trying to remove the names of dead people from voter rolls, and sued the state of Texas because its duly elected legislature rightfully refuses to spend their taxpayers' money to give blood money to organizations that kill unborn babies. He refuses to defend parts of the Defense of Marriage Act that he disagrees with, even though the bill was passed overwhelmingly in a bi-partisan vote and signed by President Clinton in 1996. When serious national security leaks endanger American military and intelligence personnel as well as foreign nationals who seek to help us fight terrorism, he appoints a couple of his own Justice Department lawyers to look into it -- one of whom was a generous campaign contributor to President Obama.
Even though the individual might have impeccable integrity, it doesn't pass the smell test. Justice is supposed to be blind, but this Justice Department winks at the law, the Constitution, and the authority of Congress. If the nation's chief attorney can't be trusted to follow the law, then how in the world do we explain to teenagers that they've got to do it? I expect that it's going to be assumed that my call for Eric With-holder's resignation is all about the election and raw partisan politics. Actually, it would be better politics for Republicans if With-holder just holds on. I mean he's too easy a target going into the heat of the election. No, this isn't about the election. It's about the country. I am less interested in his hurting President Obama than in hurting the rule of law and a respect for the Constitution. I sometimes try to use humor or satire to get my point across, but frankly, I don't see anything funny about the contempt that Eric With-holder seems to have not just for Congress or the states, but for we, the people. And it's time for him to go.
