Senate confirms Holder as first black AG

WASHINGTON (AP) – Eric Holder won Senate confirmation Monday as the nation’s first African-American attorney general, after supporters from both parties touted his dream resume and easily overcame Republican concerns over his commitment to fight terrorism and his willingness to back the right to keep and bear arms. The vote was 75-21.

Holder’s chief supporter, Sen. Patrick Leahy, said the confirmation was a fulfillment of civil rights leader Martin Luther King’s dream that everyone would be judged by the content of their character.

“Come on the right side of history,” said Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

Holder becomes the only black in President Barack Obama’s Cabinet. Three other African-Americans were named to top administration positions, but are not Cabinet secretaries.

Holder was a federal prosecutor, judge and the No. 2 Justice Department official in the Clinton administration. Even his critics agreed that Holder was well-qualified, but they questioned his positions and independence.

Senate confirms Holder as first black AG

The MOST dangerous man that the gun owners of the USA face, Eric Holder, was confirmed as Attorney General today. Holder is as anti-gun as it gets. It is MY opinion that Holder considers himself to be some sort of crusader on a quest, or a mission from God. Holder is, without a doubt, the worst choice that Obama could have made and the most despicable conformation that the Senate has made to date.

I have got to offer huge KUDOS to BOTH of my Senators, John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison. The BOTH voted NAY on the conformation of Holder. You can see how YOUR Senator voted HERE and I hope you see a NAY beside your Senators name!

If your Senators name is on this list in the YEA column, then YOU and your state has some serious work to do. I can’t do it for you, only YOU and the residents of YOUR state can get the job done. We have made a serious effort here in Texas, we TELL our Senators what we want from them, we don’t sit back and hope they do the right thing, we demand it of them and if they don’t, they KNOW that Texas voters will NOT think kindly of them come election day.

Both of my Senators voted for the Wall Street bailout, Hutchison was a supporter of the Immigrant Dream Act, and she still has to answer for that when she comes home to run for Governor. No one gets a pass, there are NO free lunches. We still have the Stimulus Package vote coming up, both of MY Senators are indicating they will oppose it, I certainly hope so, I have made my feelings well known to both. As well as the likely consequences if they don’t vote against it.

I am doing all I can do here in Texas, I hope you are in your state, I hope you are burning up the email inbox in your Senate and Congressional members office. YOU are the only one that can get it done, and this nation needs ALL the good people and help it can get! And I hope you will vote OUT any RINO that stood FOR this piece of shit Eric Holder!

EDIT TO ADD: The headline stresses the fact that Holder is black. I don’t give a damn if he’s lily white or green with purple polka dots, this guy is the biggest danger in the Obama cabinet!
