If he really wants to be a proxy, so be it.
Attorney General Eric Holder, in a recent interview, called himself a 'proxy' in the political debate over Obama. if he wants to be known as that, it is certainly his right. The only REAL debate over Obama is whether enough people who have been on Mars for three years, a few Unionists who have never learned to pull any other key than 'Democrat', and those confined with mental illness will vote for him. That is a really great crowd for any AG to join.
Holder has been a pompous fool since he avoided prosecution over his support for the Bush torture memos that he somehow avoided. As an Attorney-General, he rates somewhere around Janet Reno, whose only claim to fame was sending in a swat team to send young Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba. His excuse for doing only those things he is forced to do is to constantly raise the race card, or have his surrogates do it for him, and then claim the high ground.
If you believe Holder, he knew nothing about Fast & Furious until he stopped it. Well, that is just not the way Justice works. US Attorney's don't go running around agreeing to allow gun running into Mexico without WASH(INGTON APPROVAL. BATF does not allow their agents to 'go rogue' around a US attorney without WASHINGTON APPROVAL. BATF would not bless it if DOJ was not in agreement. All threads seem to follow Holder, but Holder denies it.
Where is the truth? In the documents he refuses to provide to the Congress, with Obama's blessing.
The time has come to either produce the facts, or get out of Washington by resigning.
