Eric Holder Says Obama Critics Are Racists


eric-holderAttorney General Eric Holder slammed former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin Sunday, saying she is neither a very good legal scholar nor an effective vice presidential candidate.

He also said he believed that some critics of the president attack him because he is the nation’s first black president.

Fielding a question about Palin’s call last week to impeach President Obama, Holder told ABC’s “This Week” that the former vice president candidate “wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate (in 2008). She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

Palin is only part of a growing Republican chorus calling for Obama’s impeachment for everything from his handling of the spike in illegal border crossings to excessive use of executive orders in healthcare and other areas.

“For whatever reason, (some) Republicans decided early on that this was a president they were just simply not going to cooperate with,” Holder said. “And over the past five-and-a-half years, we have seen demonstrations of that, where the president has reached out his hand, offered compromises that have simply not been met (in the way) they have been in the past by a Republican Party willing to do the appropriate things.”

Holder also blasted House Republicans’ plans to sue Obama over executive changes made to Obamacare.

“It’s a more, I think, a political gesture than a truly legal one,” Holder said. “Filing a lawsuit against the president that has no basis is not going to improve the quality of life for the American people.”

Holder said that he believed that Obama is subject to “a certain level of vehemence” that is partly racial.

“You know, people talking about taking their country back,” Holder said. “There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”

  1. Holder is the biggest racist of them all.

    Taking our country back? Obama has been President for 5 1/2 years! They don’t have it “back” yet?? Holder is using the same old tired and hackneyed political line that Obama is “uncriticizeable” just because he is (1/2) black.

    This makes about as much sense as Hamas wanting to end the “occupation” even though Israel closed down all settlements, withdrew their troops and removed all vestiges of anything Israeli nine years ago!

    These extreme radical Leftists in the Obama Government will never make any sense.

  2. Mr. Holder is like a spool of a voiced placement for his own diaper dreams of total immunity based on skin color alone. There are very serious issues in America alone let alone the way that the Obama administration is applying Middle East and Israel policy. I do not think that Holder has a hold on the future in his own favor. This guy is a class rotting mood for his own class struggle and I think he has no place in American Diplomacy if he can not alleviate his blasting of racial regulation for his own prayer of better conduct of better years. Disgusting if you ask me. And he can be more of a cry baby for his own diaper somewhere else. Sorry.

  3. Yes Mr. Witholder. It takes one to know one. YOU were impeached by the Congress! You are an UNELECTED criminal who always tries to use the “race card” bait in order to deflect criticism from your arrogant self! You & Susan Rice are what’s wrong with America! You are the reason Americans don’t want to pay taxes!

  4. Well, in the good old days somewhat who performed like B. Obama or E. Holder would simply be dismissed as just “another one of those jerks or crooks”. Any distinct minority group – eg Chinese, Amish, Khasidim, Sikhs, Blacks, etc., just invite more focus and criticism. The Kennedys were absolute jerks and failures from the outset, but expended major effort in P.R.. A sin against Jack was an outrage against Jacquelyn and John-John. B. Obama, on the other hand, has had an almost suicidal P.R. — the goons he keeps around him, the insufficient highlighting of his brilliant wife and terrific daughters, and his weakness (or inability?) to really focus and master situations. I believe that most of his detractors kind of hoped that his presidency would be okay, meaning intelligent and focused, with no serious scandals or failures. Instead, he’s as selfish and failing as his miserable predecessors from W. Wilson onward. So why the unusual gloating over his weakness? Because he only lays Rabbenu Tam t’fillin? Get real and hate democratically.
