Thank McCain and Kyl for Eric Holder

 Michelle Malkin has a first rate reminder regarding how we ended up with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, whom she refers to a “Corruptocrat.”  Holder didn’t just drop from the clear blue into his position of enormity.  He was shoehorned in with the help of Republicans working in concert with Barack Obama and aiding his conformation

This is the 2009 vote, including 19 Senate Republicans — rightly called “enablers” who helped put Eric Holder in place heading the Justice Department: 

Taken out of alphabetical order for emphasis, are two names well known to Arizonans: John McCain and Jon Kyl. These two joined with their RINO cohorts Lamar Alexander, (Tenn.), Bob Bennett, (Utah), Kit Bond (Missouri), Saxby Chambliss, (GA), Susan Collins, (Maine), Bob Corker, (Tenn.), Lindsey Graham, (S.C.), Charles Grassley, (Iowa), Judd Gregg, (N.H.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Johnny Isakson, (GA), Richard Lugar, (Ind.), Lisa Murkowski, (Alaska), Jeff Sessions, (Ala.), Olympia Snowe, (Maine), Arlen Specter, (PA.), and George Voinovich, (Ohio).

Holder rewarded the grandiose pass of McCain and Kyl by filing a lawsuit against Arizona, although for all of their campaign rhetoric about securing the border, it’s clear that was a reelection ruse.

Read Malkin’s potent column today in which she explicitly details how Republican senators were repeatedly warned about Holder’s shady judgment and questionable ethics. The 2002 House Committee on Government Reform’s report  on the Clinton-era Marc Rich pardon scandal spelled out Holder’s willingness to put political ambition above the rule of law. Then-Deputy Attorney General Holder and former White House counsel Jack Quinn, who was representing the fugitive financier Rich, worked together to cut the Justice Department out of the process.

Holder pandered to leftist special interests in engineering clemency for 16 members of violent terrorist groups linked by the FBI to more than 130 bombings and six murders. He gave the terrorists unprecedented access to phone calls and consultations as they negotiated their freedom. He hid behind executive privilege when asked by victims’ families to explain the decision process. And as a partner at Covington and Burling, the powerhouse D.C.- and N.Y.-based law firm infamous for representing Gitmo detainees, Holder’s opposition to the jihadi detention center raised bright red conflict-of-interest flags.

    They are both part of the problem and never a part of the solution, Holder is part of the big reason that Obama must go!

  2. LD 7 PC says:

    Kyl and McCain are two peas in a pod. They both hold rank and file Republican activists/PCs in contempt and think only they rule the world. They should have been grounded from their high flying senate perches years ago. But we are partly to blame for giving them the idea they are something special. Can you imagine walking into a room full of people, not even opening your mouth and having them all rise to their feet and applaud? That’s ego building stuff. I’ve stopped doing it. I have to plead guilty to contributing to too many big heads with such idiocy over the years. Now they rate a polite applause if I like what they’ve said after they’ve spoken.

  3. Doc says:

    As a PC, I ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT, EVER, Applaud anything these two bastards say or do.


    They both need to be impeached.

    To paraphrase Harry Truman, there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democrats and the Republicans.

    That will come home to haunt us during a Romney presidency.

    This is not to say Romney will not be an improvement over Obama.

    This is to say he will only slow down our descent into fascism, not reverse it.

    • AmericanDad says:

      I suggest you read the Platforms of the two parties for starters, garvan. They stand for something and are quite different. No one is perfect. I’d venture that even YOU fall short, But we better all rethink what we are up against in the strongest of terms. I read today that former homeowners who had decent jobs and normal lives in Greece are dropping their children off at orphanages because they are lving on the streets and eating in government run bread lines. Obama will be unrestrained if relelcted and not having to worry about another term. Mitt Romney is not a fascist, He is a successful businessman and formerly ran a state, albeit a liberal one.

      Obama bows to Muslim kings and is a Marxist.

      • garvan says:

        I didn’t call Romney a fascist. I said he will only slow down our descent into fascism, not reverse it.

  5. CD9 says:

    Oh gee another Ron Paul fool. You people are now suing the Republican National Committee to change the rules the same as the Dems did in 2000.

  6. Saguaro Sam says:

    McCain and Kyl also responsible for Janet Napolitano getting control of Homeland Insecurity.

    • Realist says:

      Saguaro Sam:
      As you know McShame is a “progressive” fool and I understand Kyl is of Arab dissent. Hmmmm…

  7. CD9 says:

    Yes they are the same, please tell me give me one liberal appointee these two old fools did not vote for? Remember McCain had his staff start the Republicans for Napolitano to stop Matt Salmon, he is a traitor to the Republicans, well he also betrayed this Country in Vietnam, and some of you, I will not say it, still voted for him. We had our chance with JD Hayworth but again you listened to the McCain nonsence on JD’s supposed crimes and misdeeds. Crimes the charges were dropped as soon as the election was over.

    Lord I am so freaking mad today I may never get over it till November and maybe not then.

  8. CD9 says:

    Remember this in August and whatever you do vote for WIL CARDON, Jeff Flake is another amnesty supporter.

    • garvan says:

      Flake voted 25 times against earmarks out of 25 opportunities to do so, according to the Club For Growth.

      Only a handful of new Tea Party arrivals in Congress did the same, most having been neutered by Boehner and the GOP leadership.

      Who would be better for the nation — an open borders fiscal conservative, or a closed borders liberal?

      Count the costs both ways before voting.

  10. CD9 says:

    Flake and Guitterez from Illinois wrote the ‘Strive Act’, if you do not know wha thtat is, it is the House version of AMNESTY. Please tell me all about Jeff Flake and his club for growth endorsement. I do not care who endorses him I will not vote for him. But then suppose you tell me how a fiscal conservative can try to open the borders to a bunch of welfare collecters at our expense?

    • garvan says:

      I know all about the Strive Act.

      The Club for Growth did not “endorse” Flake. They merely reported his excellent voting record on earmarks.

      So, let me pose the question again: Who would be better for our nation – an open borders fiscal conservative or a closed borders liberal?

  11. CD9 says:

    Oh and remember McCain’s statement about BO, “There is nothing to fear from a BO Presideny”.

  12. Saguaro Sam says:

    Sen. John McCain said in an interview posted online Friday that “foreign money” was helping fellow Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential.
