"President Obama says that he has “complete confidence” in Attorney General Eric Holder."
That’s good news for Republicans. Pick almost any unnecessary, losing battle in Obama’s first term, and his hapless attorney general is at the center of it.
If not for the fact that so many of Holder’s decisions harm national security, he would be a political dream come true for the GOP – delivering up reliably disastrous controversies for the president every few months.
The latest controversy over whether Holder misled a House committee on “Operation Fast and Furious” — the botched federal gun sting that allowed hundreds of weapons to flow to Mexican drug cartels and resulted in the death of an ATF agent — is only the most recent of these debacles. . .
One such failure is a mistake; this many is a pattern of gross incompetence.
Or, of doing exactly and precisely what his ideology-driven boss wants him to do.
