The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Holder played ‘race card’ on Obama’s orders?

Written By: Bob - Dec• 20•11

The racial rhetoric of this Administration is getting tiresome.

Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh, one of the first members of Congress to demand Attorney General Eric Holder resign over the ill-fated Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking program, told The Daily Caller that Holder’s recent use of racial politics to attack his critics appears to be something President Barack Obama “orchestrated.”

Walsh agrees with Florida Republican Rep. Allen West’s assessment of Holder’s behavior, saying Holder’s race card is the “last card in the deck.”

“His [Obama’s] silence, to me, tells me the president is complicit in this,” Walsh said. “And, even if he does come out and say something, I can’t believe Eric Holder can even make a statement like that. In his statement he refers to himself and the president. I can’t believe that Eric Holder made that statement without either understanding that the president agreed with it, or [that] he had the president’s permission to say this.”

The most pathetic part of this line of defense (if you can call it that), is that most blacks are going to agree with it. It’s illogical, ignores the fact that it is another minority group that is the most direct victim of the guns walked in Operation Fast and Furious, but that is what the victim mentality that Democrats have cultivated in the black population has wrought along with dependency on the government.

  1. I’m trying to figure out just what holder means when he refers to folks attacking him and Obama because of “the nature of our relationship” —
