Republicans: Snatching Defeat From Jaws Of Victory
As usual, the Republicans, when confronted with sure victory based on sound principles that the majority of Americans support, find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Americans haven’t forgotten about Fast and Furious. Just because a report gives Eric Holder wiggle room to lie about how it exonerated him from involvement in the diabolical government plan intended to ultimately deprive us of our Second Amendment right to own and bear arms–the truth is that the report did not exonerate Holder as he is claiming.[quote style=”boxed” float=”right”]What is it that makes Republicans so averse to the truth? Do they take an oath to only hold other Republicans responsible for innocuous statements?[/quote]”DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz told the House Oversight Committee that his team found that almost everyone inside Holder’s inner circle knew about the nefarious aspects of Fast and Furious and that Holder should have known about it, even if his investigation found no evidence that he did.” (Paul Ryan; Eric Holder Must Go Over Fast And Furious; Matthew Boyle; The Daily Caller; 9/30/12)
Horowitz also said: “We found, as we outlined in the report, we struggle to understand how an operation of this size, of this importance, that impacted another country like it did, could not have been briefed up to the attorney general of the United States. It should have been, in our view. It was that kind of a case.”
But, instead of continuing to press forward in a commitment to prove that Holder was involved in Fast and Furious–no doubt along with Janet Napolitano, Hillary Clinton, and probably Obama himself–Republicans are content to allow ATF Director Ken Melson and U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke to resign.
Considering the strong suggestion by Horowitz that Holder must have indeed been aware (and involved) in Fast and Furious, Paul Ryan has taken the strong stand (sarcasm intended) of calling for Holder to resign. Republicans, it would appear, are of the opinion that resignations should replace culpability for criminal acts when it involves government officials.
And proving they are consistent–even if they seem to set a different standard of personal accountability when it comes to their own–Republicans are also calling for U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to resign for her reporting that the murder of our Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others by terrorists was an isolated incident by a few disgruntled Libyans.
What is it that makes Republicans so averse to the truth? Do they take an oath to only hold other Republicans responsible for innocuous statements? I offer their treatment of former Congressman Trent Lott and Congressman Akin as examples.
Why do Republicans throw members of their Party under the proverbial bus at even the suggestion of impropriety and allow Erebusic leftists to go unpunished? Why are they silent about Fox News’ refusal to fire Jehmu Greene for the calling Tucker Carlson the equivalent of the “N” word in the black lexicon?
Republicans must decide if they are Republicans or Democrat flunkies in drag. When will they understand we are not electing them to play golf with Obama and capitulate to Democrat ideology?
They despise honorable Tea Party groups because we represent truth and accountability. It is my opinion that until we hold them accountable for their actions our government will be nothing more than a den of thieves, whose sole commitment is to their pensions and whatever else they can rob us of for themselves.
