53% of Americans support the GOP holding Attorney General Holder in contempt.
The Democrats who are hoping that Americans would see the contempt vote as political posturing are now weeping that their attempt to fool the American people is NOT working.
The Americans are smart enough to understand that this vote was not about the Republicans fighting President Obama. This was not about them trying to win political points. This was not about Eric Holder being the first African-American Attorney General.
This WAS AND IS about giving answers to the Terry family. This was and is about giving answers to the several families in Mexico who have lost loved ones because of Operation Fast and Furious. This was and is about showing the people in power that THEY CANNOT AND WILL NOT be allowed to hide from JUSTICE!
Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama have a choice: they can continue hiding the documents (and face the people’s anger at the ballot boxes) or they can surrender the documents and do what is right. Right now, it seems that they want to continue playing political games and whine about the GOP being unfair…I hope they will change their attitude soon.
Regardless, we must commit to defeating President Obama and his whole administration this November. The administration’s refusal to hand over the documents is just one example of their refusal to obey the Constitution and respect the balance of powers. If they receive four more years, imagine what they will do.
