Sarah Palin’s tweet to President Obama calling for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign was met with serendipitous agreement today, from way over in the other corner of the room. HuffPo and Tavis Smiley.
Smiley. Tavis. S-M-I-L-E-Y.
‘Black love is Black people cheering and rejoicing the day that O.J. Simpson was found not guilty, even though O.J. hadn’t done much of anything for Black people. Black love, in its essence, is the awesome capacity and the uncanny ability to love someone in spite of themselves — in spite of their shortcomings…’
Like nearly decapitating the ex-wife. Shortcomings. That Tavis is such a kidder.
Yes. That Tavis Smiley. My personal pick for First Black President. Cornel West being the second.
Smiley and HuffPo, like all savvy liberals, are looking for a scapegoat big enough to deflect shrapnel from the four major scandals that have blown up in Barack Obama’s face over the past two weeks.
This must be painful for HuffPo and the brother. When we said liberals better catch the train before it leaves the station, we didn’t tell them that Palin was the conductor. You betcha!
When asked whether Holder should resign for signing the warrant application on Fox News correspondent James Rosen as a potential co-conspirator in the State Department espionage leak, President Obama said, ‘State Department leak? No one told me about that.’
Okay, that wasn’t nice.
Before the James Rosen news came out, Holder told Congress this:
In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material. This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.
Ironically, he made that statement to a Democrat Congressman. And yes, it has been confirmed he was under oath when he said it.
Then fast forward to the news report by Michael Isikoff with NBC News that we posted this morning that pinned Holder’s signature to the subpoena to go after James Rosen, alleging criminal allegations against him – all over a N. Korea leak.
The law enforcement official said Holder’s approval of the Rosen search, in the spring of 2010, came after senior Justice officials concluded there was “probable cause” that Rosen’s communications with his source, identified as intelligence analyst Stephen Kim, met the legal burden for such searches. “It was approved at the highest levels– and I mean the highest,” said the law enforcement official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. He said that explicitly included Holder.
So, will Congress have the balls to do anything about this or will Boehner put the kibosh on any action taken against Holder?
When asked if he would file contempt charges against Holder for lying to Congress about the Rosen targeting scandal, Speaker John Boehner said, ‘Eric Holder targeted Rosen? No one told me about that.’
Just kidding, but the Speaker will probably find some way to reveal his inner-RINO.
