It's nice and quiet on the back bench and the Press calls us Bi-Partisan. We are the Country Club GOP. Eric Holder’s GOP Enablers
Eric Holder’s GOP Enablers - Michelle Malkin - National Review Online
By Michelle Malkin June 15, 2012
Bipartisanship for its own sake has consequences.
While calls for U.S. Attorney General Eric “Stonewall” Holder’s resignation grow and the House GOP gears up for a contempt vote next week, it’s worth remembering how we got into this mess. In two words: feckless bipartisanship.
“I like Barack Obama and want to help him if I can.” That was Utah GOP senator Orrin Hatch in January 2009, just weeks before the Senate voted on President Obama’s attorney-general nominee, Eric Holder. Right out of the gate, upon Obama’s election in November 2008, Hatch signaled that he would green-light the administration’s top law enforcer.
“I start with the premise that the president deserves the benefit of the doubt,” the six-term incumbent Hatch told the Hill newspaper. “I don’t think politics should be played with the attorney general.”
Utah voters, mark those words. Bending to bipartisanship for bipartisanship’s sake — and ignoring the obvious consequences — is playing politics.
And, conservatives, please remember the actions of all 19 Republican senators who ignored Holder’s abominable career as a political fixer and confirmed him. “I found Mr. Holder to be a good listener, which is an important prerequisite for any good leader,” Missouri GOP senator Kit Bond explained in support of the nomination. “I believe him when he says that he’s willing to take good ideas from wherever they come.”
The other 17 Senate Republicans who helped put Holder in place at the Justice Department were: Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Bob Bennett (Utah), Saxby Chambliss (Ga.), Susan Collins (Maine), Bob Corker (Tenn.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Charles Grassley (Iowa), Judd Gregg (N.H.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Jon Kyl (Ariz.), Richard Lugar (Ind.), John McCain (Ariz.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Olympia Snowe (Maine), Arlen Specter (Pa.), and George Voinovich (Ohio).
It’s not like these GOP enablers weren’t warned over and over about Holder’s shady judgment and questionable ethics.
