Obama Administration vs Terror, Eric Holder vs. Arizona, President Obama vs. BP

379.) I firmly believe that most people have known that President Obama was going to have a weak hand when it came to defending our nation from its enemys, but last week while at a congressional hearing Attorny General Eric Holder demonstrated just how week handed the administration was going to be.   During the hearing Representive Smith asked Eric Holder about the three terrorist attacks that have taken place on our soil sense President Obama has taken office “do you think they took the actions that they did because of radical Islam?” here is the conversation that fallowed.
HOLDER:  There are a variety of reasons why I think people have taken these actions.  One I think you have to look at each individual case.  I mean, we’re in the process now of talking to Mr. Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to take the action he took.
 SMITH:  Okay.  But radical Islam could have been one of the reasons?
HOLDER:  There are a variety of reasons why people —
SMITH:  But was radical Islam one of them?
HOLDER:  There are a variety of reasons why people do these things.  Some of them are potentially religious cases, so —
SMITH:  But all I’m asking is if you think, among those variety of reasons, radical Islam might have been one of the reasons that the individuals took the steps that they did?
HOLDER:  You see, you say “radical Islam.”
HOLDER: I mean, I think those people who espouse a version of Islam that is not —
SMITH:  Are you uncomfortable attributing any of their actions to radical Islam?  It sounds like it.
HOLDER:  No. I don’t want to say anything negative about a religion.
Okay so basically here is yet another classic example of the Obama Administration going out of its way to avoid making the terrorist angry. Eric Holder refused to admit that all three men who attacked our country were link by radical Islam. It boggles the mind, they continue to believe that if we simply talk to them, the terrorist will stop hating the princibles that America was founded on. Obviously refering to the war as an overseas contingency operation, and terrorist attacks as man made disasters is not making our nation safer, you would think the three terrorist attacks in a year as opposed to 1 in 8 would make that clear.  

380.) Attorny General Eric Holder has gone on public record as standing against the Arizona Immigration Law, going as far as to threaten a federal law suit. He said things like “The concern I have about the law that they have passed is that I think it has the possibility of leading to, uh, racial profiling and putting a wedge between law enforcement in the community that would, in fact, be profiled.  People in that community are less likely then to cooperate with people in law enforcement, less likely to share information, less likely to be witnesses in case[s] that law enforcement is trying to solve.” as well as “Well, I don’t think it’s necessarily a good idea.  And it’s certainly one of the concerns that I have, that you will end up in a situation where people are racially profiled.” What is interesting is that last week Eric Holder went before a congressional committee and there was an answer that I found to be quite odd.  Texas congressman Ted Poe asked “Have you read the Arizona Immigration law?” here is the converstation that fallowed.
HOLDER:  I have not had a chance to. I’ve glanced at it. I’ve not read it.
POE:  It’s ten pages. It’s a lot shorter than the health care bill, which was 2,000 pages long.  I’ll give you my copy of it, if you would like to have a copy.  Even though you haven’t read the law, do you have an opinion as to whether it’s constitutional?
HOLDER:  I have not really… I have not been briefed yet. We, as I said, have had underway a review of the law. I’ve not been briefed by the people who have been — who are responsible for that review.
POE:  Are you going to read the law?
HOLDER:  I’m sure I will read the law in anticipation of that briefing.  I know that they will put that in front of me, and I’ll spend a good evening reading that law.
So let me get this streight Eric Holder has gone out and bashed this law, attacked it for possibly violating a person’s rights, but he has not read the law itself? Like Congressman Poe said the bill is only 10 pages long, if I was sent by the White House to investigate a law the first thing I would do is read it.  From this conversation it becomes quite clear that Eric Holder is not going to base how he is going to proceed based on his own judgement, instead he is going to wait until administration officals tell him how he thinks. And another thing He is going to spend a good evening reading the law, a whole evening the law is only ten pages long, how can that possibly take up an entire evening of your time? Yet another prime example of unqualified individuals that currently infest the halls of the White House. They are like termites and they are eating away at our country.

381.) President Obama came out last week talking about the BP oil spill, here is just a little of what he said. “There’s enough responsibility to go around and all parties should be willing to accept it.  That includes, by the way, the federal government.  For too long, for a decade or more, there’s been a cozy relationship between the oil companies and the federal agency that permits them to drill.  It seems as if permits were too often issued based on little more than assurances of safety from the oil companies.  That cannot and will not happen anymore.” The President then said, “This is a responsibility that all of us share.  The oil companies share it, the manufacturers of this equipment share it, the agencies in the federal government in charge of oversight share that responsibility.  I will not tolerate more finger-pointing or irresponsibility.”  Thats is rediculous in every way shape and form of the word. First off the oil execs where called to Washington as experts if they did not testify they would have been held in contempt, it was not finger pointing, it was the process of justice. Second, I see President Obama blaming the evil executives, and those devilish government agencies, but nowhere do I see him saying that he made a mistake, it was President Obama who granted BP and exemption from certian saftey and enviromental standards (a payback for the campaign). He is trying to once again position himself as a Washington outsider. Unfortunatly he is not a Washington Outsider, he has been an insider sense he went to the Senate. He embodies everything that is wrong with Washington, corruption, ignorance, and arrogance. Rather than admit his failing he is shifting the blame and trying to pretend like he has the clean record of a nun.


  1. 379)  I think it’s more about not wanting to upset HIS friends…380)  It’s also a great example of the hypocricy of this administration.  Everyone who spoke out against this healthcare monstrocity was verbally attacked by this administration for not knowing what was in it.  Yet, it’s ok for them to threaten legal action on a bill 1/200th of the size, which of course, they didn’t read.  It’s also about their attempt to strip state’s rights and institute an even larger federal gov’t381) For someone who wants no finger pointing, it sounds like he’s doing plenty of it…

  2. @grim_truth –  379.) the could be some truth to that.380.)  hit the nail dead on the head there381.) I think he needs to remember the old kindergarten saying whenever you point at someone three fingers are always pointed back at you.
