Holder Held in Contempt by Bi-Partisan Vote

AG Eric Holder has the distinction of being the first Attorney General to be held in contempt of congress.  The bi-partisan vote shows the seriousness of the charges against Holder.  Now that Obama has his big SCOTUS win, will he throw Holder to the wolves?

Meanwhile, 100 Democrats walked off the floor claiming the vote was racist.

Let me get this straight.

Holding Eric Holder in contempt, in a bi-partisan vote, is racist. The fact that nearly 300 people, 99.9% of which were Mexican, were killed as a result of the Fast and Furious gun running program concocted by the Obama administration is not racist and not really any big deal.

Seems legit...

And what is the end game of this? Nothing, absolutely nothing. Nothing is going to happen to Holder. Republicans talk the talk, but don't walk the walk, unless of course your issues are more war, more free trade agreements, and more tax cuts. On this historic day they should be discussing their plan to dismantle this monstrosity. Not some symbolic vote on Holder.

Weren't the republicans going to defund obamcare once they took control of the House in 2010? Have they? Recently one high ranking republican member of the House said that if they win in November, they would not address the new military policy on gays. He said it was a "settled" issue. Now I don't give a shit about this, but it should be sufficient to show supporters that republicans won't defend your interests once elected, unless of course, you are for more war, more free trade agreements and more tax cuts.

Bottom line, if your main desires in life are not more wars, more free trade agreements and more tax cuts, I don't see how you could vote republican. Of course if you are a white, heterosexual male, I don't see how you could vote democrat, but that is for another debate.
