I don't think the Justice Department has ever been as big as a joke as it is right now, but I would be shocked if Holder resigns much before Obama leaves. So it would appear that we're stuck with these two talking turds for the next couple of years.

I'm not a Politico fan, but this was an interesting read that sheds some light into who may be the worst Attorney General of the last 30 years.

Republicans deciding to hate government when Democrats are in control does not make any part of government a joke, it just shows your own bias.

You claim you are viewing him in his entirety and yet you post a quote out of context ? LOL !!!!

Do you actually disagree with either of the quotes being discussed here ?

That was indeed the point of the OP, which is why the OP is wrong. The Op was claiming he was calling everyone racist when in reality he was simply saying some people are indeed racist.

Do you disagree ?

So all you have to do is add the word "some" and then you can make whatever asinine and moronic comment you like? I don't think so. Eric Holder is in a position of authority. You don't get to make any flat out stupid and insulting remark you like and then make it all okay because you didn't make an absolute statement. That's a completely lame attempt at defending what he said. Try harder.

If you want to limit it to one quote, then I will say that Holder did not specify everyone opposing President Obama as racist. I will however hold to my view that Mr. Holder could find racism in belly button lint. Does that clarify my position?

One, I'm not a Republican, so that just shows your own ignorance to assume that if someone speaks out against a Democratic administration, they are a Republican.

This isn't about "hating government". This is about the Justice Department failing to perform their job without bias.

If you cannot see that this is a problem, then no amount of explaining will enlighten you.

When Obama was first running for President, he called Bill Clinton a racist. That term when he slung it out there the first time had such a stigma that it really had a chilling effect on public debates and discussions. Obama used it quite effectively. So he and others, including Holder, continued to use it when Obama found people disagreeing with him. I worked for a while. Now, everyone is just over it. It's stupid, useless, ineffective and a non-event. It just really makes Holder look worse than he already is. Even the press is starting to call out this kind of stuff.

That is not to say that racism is not alive because it is. It is insidious, uncalled for, and everyone needs to call it out when they see it happening, fight against it and squish it. Everyone is created equal. Everyone.

When the facts are against you; out comes the race card. They need to dry off the race card and put it away. It isn't effective anymore. And I didn't even read what he said and furthermore I don't care what he said. Their creditability was gone long ago. Calling someone else a racist is just an excuse for ones own shortcomings. Quit complaining and get to work. LOL.

Seriously, I am so tired of the whiny crybabies of this administration. Instead of doing something positive, they keep trying to put the blame for their lack of effectiveness on others. Call out the National Guard and protect our borders.
