Eric Holder

Required reading for those Obama-ites who carried his message of “CHANGE”. If Obama is so change oriented, then why is he filling his cabinet with Washington insiders connected to the Clintons?

From the New York Post…

“WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama’s aides have privately asked senators whether Washington attorney Eric Holder would be confirmed as the next attorney general, according to a person involved in the talks.

The talks suggest that Obama is deeply interested in Holder, who served as the No. 2 official in the Justice Department under President Clinton… the last day of Clinton’s term, Holder was asked whether the president should pardon Rich, a wealthy commodities dealer who had been spent years running from tax charges. Holder said he was “neutral, leaning towards favorable” on the pardon. Clinton later cited that as among the factors that persuaded him to issue the pardon.

Holder has publicly apologized for what he said was a snap decision that he should have paid more attention to. Had he taken more time to review the case, he would have advised against a pardon, he said.

A former U.S. attorney, Holder is among Washington’s most prominent defense attorneys. He would be the first black attorney general in U.S. history.

In the past week, Obama aides have asked Senate Republicans whether they would support Holder. In particular, the aides questioned whether Holder’s confirmation would be delayed because of his involvement in the 2001 pardon of fugitive Marc Rich by President Bill Clinton. “

Oh where to start. First of all a candidate of “CHANGE” doesn’t hire a Washington insider to be his Attorney General.

What is a Washington insider?  A Washington insider supports pardoning a wealthy tax evader, because the President wants him to.

So how do you gain support for a nominee who is a Washington insider, when you yourself ran as the candidate of “CHANGE”?

It’s easy, first you have to “package” the nominee as someone who will be remembered  for “historical purposes”, much like Holder was billed in the New York Post. Remember the “Post” stated that if confirmed, Holder will be the nation’s first Black Attorney General. (How fitting for the first Black President).

Of course it is ironic that Bill Clinton was considered the nation’s first “Black” President, but it is just as ironic that Holder will be considered the first Black Attorney General.

Why?

Because technically, there was already a Black Attorney General.

“Who”, you might ask, well ironically, it was (drumroll please)…. Eric Holder!

From Wikipedia.Org

“Holder served as Acting Attorney General under President George W. Bush for several weeks until the Senate confirmed Bush’s nominee, John Ashcroft

Hey just a quick question for you Obama {quick} CHANGE artists out there…

How come Holder wasn’t heralded as the nation’s first “Black” Attorney General under George W. Bush?

Who did Holder report to as Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration?

Janet Reno

 Good ole Janet Reno, and what was Janet Reno most remembered for?

The raid on the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco, Tx in 1993 which killed 76 people “including 21 children and two pregnant women”
