Contempt for the Contemptible

As expected, Congress has done something right for a change, at least initiated it so that next week, the rat in AG’s clothing can be made to face the music for his failure to comply with the law.

A House panel voted Wednesday to place Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his failure to comply with a subpoena, defying an assertion of executive privilege from President Obama.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, led by Republican Chairman Darrell Issa (Calif.), approved a resolution along party lines to place Holder in contempt after battling him for months over access to internal agency documents about the gun-tracking operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

Of course, leave it to the Felon-In-Charge to attempt to use “executive privilege”, a phenomenon to which Mr. O now subscribes in order to obstruct justice.

The vote came after Obama escalated the conflict by sending a letter to the committee claiming executive privilege over the documents the panel had sought.

And, of course, the rest of what has sadly, since selling out to the far left, become the Party of Criminals, also contributed to the endeavor to obstruct justice.

All 23 Republicans on the committee voted for the contempt resolution, while all 17 Democrats voted against it. Every member of the panel was present for the vote.

All that and executive privilege, gee whiz!

Barack Obfuscationama’s not, we sincerely hope, going to succeed in running interference on the details of Fast & Furious coming to light.


It seems that Obama made a lot of pledges back in the day. Too bad this one, like the rest, and more-or-less directly related to the issue described in this post, has never seen the light of day.

Every president wishes to leave a legacy. If nothing else, Obama will one day be said to have left a Legacy of Lies.
