Attorney General Eric Holder gets 'mad' about shutdown impact
Josh Gerstein - POLITICO


It wasn't quite a "Network" moment, but normally mild-mannered Attorney General Eric Holder showed a flash of anger Monday as he discussed the impacts of a looming government shutdown and the so-called budget sequester on rank-and-file workers at the Justice Department.

"This has real-world consequences for the employees of this department, who have to pay mortgages, who have to pay car notes, who have to buy groceries and I think that is something that people as they're trying to make their political points need to keep in mind: there are good, hardworking Americans who are going to suffer because of this dysfunction—and I’m mad about that," Holder said, jabbing his index finger towards reporters as he expressed his ire.

Blame for the budget disorder lies "primarily" with the House of Representatives, said the attorney general—who found himself at such disagreement with the GOP-led House last year that it voted to hold him in contempt of Congress.

"I have to say that this is something it seems to me can be worked through. People are trying to make a polticial point and I’m trying to run a Justice Department," a frustrated Holder said. "We’re trying to keep the American people safe. We're trying to keep crime down."

Holder is a perfect example of the merging of Affirmative Action and the Peter Principle. 

And an Obama throne-sniffer par excellence.

All well and good....but I would still keep an eye on this POS. 

Two eyes, even!

He's coming after the Tea Party, perhaps?
