Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s obsession with racial grievance-mongering could get Americans burnt to a
crisp in their own homes. That’s because his Justice Department is trying to force the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) to hire flunkies who got 70 percent wrong on a basic, fire-related multiple-choice, open-book test.

Blame Bush. It was his Justice Department that filed the lawsuit in 2007. The case was ruled in their favor and we are now at the reparations stage of the process.

As I stated on another thread....Eric Holder and this administration are tools. Yeah, let's just hire people with nothing for brains for one of our most important jobs that services us all. I wouldn't expect anything less from this administration.....

The Justice Department can only enforce laws passed by Congress. Y'all do know that, don't you?

If you want to blame someone, blame Congress.

Wrong, they can and do pick and choose what to enforce and when.

I could probably get that number correct without reading the book. Or any other stuff before taking the test.

While bashing Eric Holder and Obama may be emotionally satisfying, it's intellectually dishonest in this case. For a more complete story:
