Attorney General Eric Holder: If The President Does It, It's Legal

Since the early days of our republic, the Attorney General (AG) of the United States has served as the chief lawyer for the government, entrusted with ensuring that the nation's laws are faithfully carried out and holding government officials accountable to abiding by their oaths of office to "uphold and defend the Constitution."

Unfortunately, far from holding government officials accountable to abiding by the rule of law, the attorneys general of each successive administration have increasingly aided and abetted the Executive Branch in skirting and, more often than not, flouting the law altogether, justifying all manner of civil liberties and human rights violations and trampling the Constitution in the process, particularly the Fourth Amendment.

No better example is there of the perversion of the office of the AG than its current occupant Eric Holder, who was appointed by President Obama in 2009. Hailed by civil liberties and watchdog groups alike for his pledge to "reverse the disastrous course that we have been on over the past few years" and usher in a new era of civil liberties under Obama, Holder has instead carried on the sorry tradition of his predecessors, going to great lengths to "justify" egregious government actions that can only be described as immoral, unjust and illegal.

The following are just some of the highlights of the dangerous philosophies embraced and advanced by Holder and his Justice Department.

I remember when that sorry loser worked in D.C. for Marion Barry. He was stupid then and hasn't gotten any smarter since. Only more dangerous. He is the poster child of equal opportunity taking precedent over ability. He was the BEST person in the USA obama could find to be the top law enforcement official?? Him and Justice Sotomayer couldn't polish the shoes of HUNDREDS of other much more qualified and competent people who SHOULD have been in their place. The only time he looks smart is when he is standing next to obama, until either one speaks, then its a toss-up of who is the biggest buffoon.

Chuck Cook is that you?

Richard Nixon would run circles around Obama and any clown in the Obama regime. If Richard Nixon wasn't stalked by psychotic Democrats he would have gone down as the greatest president in American History.
