What happens when you give radicals an inch

ericholder1Every day, Americans receive object lessons in the mind-blowing audacity of the criminals who make up the Obama administration. Indeed, radicals and progressives of prominence simply exude audacity and impudence overall, advancing their immoral and illegal agenda as though the rule of law and the Constitution simply did not exist.

Occasionally, we’re treated to “one for the books,” as it were.

During a House Judiciary Committee Hearing this week, Attorney General Eric Holder became irate when Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, suggested that being in contempt of Congress was “not a big deal” to the attorney general. Gohmert was reacting to a perceived lack of forthrightness in Holder’s testimony, referring, or course, to Holder being held in contempt of Congress in June 2012 over the “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal.

“You don’t want to go there, buddy,” Holder responded. “You don’t want to go there, OK?”

I don’t want to go there?” Gohmert replied.

Holder went on to qualify his position, claiming that Gohmert’s assumption was erroneous, but what rankles is the attorney general’s belligerence in reaction to the representative’s statement, which reflects said audacity and impudence.

As reported by the Washington Times, the three utilized commercial flights “into high-profile danger zones like Beirut, Cairo and Tripoli,” meeting with top-level officials in the region.

According to The Washington Post, Bachmann, Gohmert, and King met with embassy officials in Tripoli “to receive updates on the Benghazi attack and on the general situation in Libya.” The attack on the compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 has led to a myriad of questions on the part of Congress and the American people, but none of these have been answered satisfactorily by the administration. The ostensible efforts of the State Department to determine what occurred have been perfunctory at best, yet information coming out of Libya, Egypt, and certain independent parties has all but condemned Obama and his State Department, suggesting everything from a cavalier abandonment of the personnel there, to premeditation and complicity in their deaths.
