Apparently, if the GOP leadership can't stop the contempt vote with a sellout, they're going to bury the headlines about it.

Eric Holder ‘Fast and Furious’ contempt vote to be held Thursday.
The House is scheduled to vote on recommendations that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. be held in contempt of Congress on Thursday, according to House Republican aides.
Republican leaders plan to bring the issue to the floor on Thursday, meaning lawmakers likely will vote on contempt charges on the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court is slated to announce its ruling on the constitutionality of the 2010 health-care reform law.
The timing likely deprives advocates for contempt charges of the big headlines they might have received if the vote were held another day this week.

Is it the fear of being labeled racists that causes such cowardice or is it simply more of the gutlessness I've become accustomed to seeing all to often from the establishment Republicans?

The GOP are masters at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. It's almost like this is a planned soap opera between the Democrats and Republicans as they work together to make us think we have a two party system when,in fact,it's only a show designed to fool the masses as they grab more power and eliminate the freedom of the people.

If this is true, it's not about Boehner, Romney, RNC, et. al. being cowards.

It's about them being part of the cover-up.

Our "elected representatives" are scared shitless about this contempt vote.
This is the real deal. This is duty and honor calling. This is what they are supposed to do. Protect and defend the rest of us from something that is very difficult, if not next to impossible without resorting to our 2nd Amendment remedies and redress. Police their ranks, protect us from the ravages of lawlessness, from high crimes, treason, corruption, abuse of power intrusted, and last but no way least, tyranny among their ranks. It takes a kind of courage and intestinal fortitude to do this duty. You have to look in to your soul and ask honest questions of oneself first.
These people belong to a special privileged club. In so many ways they have rigged the game six way's to Sunday, they are above the law by their own decrees and edicts.

This contempt vote is the preamble to political assassination.
It's called impeachment.

And these chicken shit motherfuckers don't have the spine and balls to do it.
To do what is right.
And to a man, and woman, sure as the sun rises, they know it.

Um, Mike, do you want the same alleged reputation as certain other blogs you criticize? When Issa et al. set the date for the House vote on Holder’s contempt of Congress, NO ONE knew the date on which the Supreme Court would announce its ruling on Obamacare.

Mike, APOLOGIES. I was mistaken in my prior reply. I thought I had read days ago that the House’s contempt vote had been scheduled, but now I can’t find that article. So either the report I (thought) I read was in error or my memory erred.
