House holds Holder in contempt
The Republican led House of Representatives along pure bipartisan lines, voted to hold Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress for not forking over sensitive documents related the ATF's "Fast and Furious" program - a program that was started under the Bush Administration two years prior to his departure from the White House. It was a (at that time) non-controversial program that Obama simply allowed to continue as designed and implemented by the Bush people.
Washington (CNN) -- The House of Representatives voted Thursday to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for refusing to turn over documents tied to the botched Fast and Furious gun-running sting -- a discredited operation that has become a sharp point of contention between Democrats and Republicans in Washington.
The House approved a pair of criminal and civil measures against the attorney general, marking the first time in American history that the head of the Justice Department has been held in contempt by Congress.House members approved the criminal contempt measure in a 255-67 vote. Almost every House Republican backed the measure, along with 17 Democrats.
If I were Obama and Holder I would tell Darrell Issa (R-Car Thief/Arsonist) to go pound sand in his fucking ass and just ignore them. Besides, recent polling puts the American public's approval rating of the GOP led Congress at around 17% -- which to me indicates the American people have quite a lot of contempt for Congress it's self.
Basically what it boils down to is that it is a Presidential election year, so you can definitely count on the GOP to try and gin up any phony scandals and controversies for which they can attempt to smear Obama with. They are corrupt to the core -- they know it, a majority of Americans know it and let's hope enough people realize this bullshit for what it is and show up at the polls on election day to kick the GOP to the curb and out of power.
Oh - and those 17 Democrats who French-kissed the sphincters of the Republicans by voting along with them on the contempt charges --- they can go fuck themselves too and here's hoping they lose their upcoming elections - even if it's to a goddamn Republican.
