Eric Holder: “My People” get a pass meaning ‘you people can go screw’

Well well well… Eric Holder, his back against the wall, blurts out some sort of a “justification” for not prosecuting the Black Panthers and at the same time claims he is not a racist.

Hey Holder? You’re a racist, dude. just sayin’

And, being the US Attorney General, your blinder-justice is not just racist, it is illegal. You sir, are a criminal.

From Politico (emphasis mine):

Attorney General Eric Holder finally got fed up Tuesday with claims that the Justice Department went easy in a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American.

Holder’s frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) accused the Justice Department of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the handling of the 2008 incident in which Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding a club stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia.

The Attorney General seemed to take personal offense at a comment Culberson read in which former Democratic activist Bartle Bull called the incident the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career.

“Think about that,” Holder said. “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia—which was inappropriate, certainly that…to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people,” said Holder, who is black.

Read the rest here.

These Dems have a gift of twist. To totally dismiss a gross act of judicial racism as nothing and justify it is one of the reasons he and Obama have less then two years left in public “service.”

Nothing like a black self-justifying racist who picks sides based on color.

    Hmmm… and without a reason at all, I’m called a racists. Funny, because if you look at my Twitter friends, you might not think that. No, let’s not look at who my friends are. It better fits the agenda just to call me a racist.

    POS Commies.

    Here’s the next bit of justice to be ignored by the Obama Regime.

    From AllahPundit at Hot Air

    You have to see it to believe it. The clip is long and the key moment doesn’t come until 2:50 in, but you won’t be able to look away. The savior here, in the orange union t-shirt and sportsjacket, is Democratic Rep. Brett Hulsey; behind him, with white hair and glasses, is Republican Sen. Glenn Grothman. Watch and try to imagine what might have happened had Hulsey not been there. Even some of the protesters are sufficiently alarmed to start a chant of “peace-ful” to calm the more unruly ones down.

    For Holder to say that he’s not prejudice/racist is same as Kaddafi saying he’s not killing his own people.

  4. Bob Mack says:

    Voter intimidation is a federal crime, not ‘inappropriate’ behavior, you sanctimonious jackass. And, as the Attorney General, ‘your people’ are the citizens, all the citizens, of the United States of America. Obama’s cabal of Marxist bottom-feeders makes me sick to my stomach.

  5. arlenearmy says:

    TO ALL WHITE PEOPLE OF AMERICA:
    Time & time again, Holder has shown us his racist side, as well as the administration. I dont know what its going to take to get white people to see that this man not only hate whites, but he hates the very country that white Americans cherish & love. The white folks who voted for Obama thought that they were doing a good thing or voted for him out of some kind of guilt. Its amazing to me how some of them defend this when its not in their best interest?

    Im going to say what most white people dont want to say b/c they are probably scared; or what some blacks dont want to say b/c of secretive lack of racial equality so long as bad stuff is not happening to blacks. Holder is trying to castrate the white man & in doing so would impoverish the white families. WH will get white folks thrown out their homes on fraudulent foreclosures & will put in black welfare families who cant pay the light bill. He’s trying to dumb down white kids to cause a generation of white folks to be beneath all other races (blacks). Holder & Obama are hard at work in humiliating America, as they know that this infuriates white folks. But in Holder’s anxious haste to fuck up & fuck with white folks he’s overlooking the obvious extinguishing of blacks thru these abortion clinics.

    Holder in concert w/his buddies in the WH are doing a modern day reversal of slavery days… but this time he’s doing it to the white people. Little did white folks know when they voted for Obama, they made a horrifying mistake. I say all this w/sincere hope that you open your eyes & trust your gut & survival instincts on this.

    Let me be blunt. Holder, Obama et al are trying to get you killed. And what’s so sad about this situation is that they’re using other white folks (liberals & spineless Rinos) ) to let it happen.

  6. arlenearmy says:

    Bob,
    Holder does not see non-blacks or US citizens as a whole, as his people.

    Holder is acting out the “conscientious objector” part of himself. His own conscious does not allow him to defend the rights of white people. He helps Mexico instead of Arizona. He don’t give a damn that a white rancher was shot down in cold blog by illegal Mexican. i hate to break the news to you, but Holder will help Gadaffi before he helps you (if you are white). Remember, Gadaffi is a real live African.

    Without a doubt, Holder is UNFIT to serve in public office. Question is, who in senate, congress or where ever will demand he step down for the good of the nation.

  7. Kini says:

    Arlenearmy , Holders overt racism was known starting with his “Nation of Cowards” speech. What Holder forgets is that it was American’s, both White, Black, and Yellow, Red, and Brown that fought for the abolishment of such inhumanities as slavery in this country.

    We are all still trying to end the inhumane injustice of human trafficking, indentured servitude, the modern day salve trade that crosses our boarders and continues in the middle east. Amongst other worldly places that continue to violate human rights, this country, with all its imperfections, is still the last best hope for freedom and equality.

    We must remind people of that. Being an (legal) immigrant and having first hand knowledge of such injustices, I am always perplexed by those that demand tolerance, but are unwilling to practice it.

    During the civil rights era, it was whites and blacks that fought, shed blood and even died for racial equality. Holder is the new George Wallace, and he is standing at the steps of the schoolhouse door, and I doubt he’ll ever have a born again moment. A poor example for our future.

    If anything, I pray for his soul, and pity his life.

I don’t care if your black, white, green, woman, man, log cabin, the ONLY people I hate are COMMIES… black, white, and green Commies. Why? Because Commies hate freedom.

    Yeah, I hear you, Commies. You keep saying, anything I don't like is Communism. Let's get it right. I hate Progressives, Socialists, Marxists and Commies. You keep saying I don't know the difference between Progressives, Socialists, Marxists and Commies. You know what? They are all pinko, so let's simplify it and call you Commies. If you get p!ssed off, it's a bonus.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Extremely astute comments. Holder and Obama are agitators. To them, IMO, its about power and they use this sort of behavior to stir up racial strife. Politics of race.

  15. THIS IS OUR BIGGEST THREAT AND NOT OUR OUT OF CONTROL GOVERNMENT. THE MUSLIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE MUST BE VOTED OUT IN 2012!!!!

  16. ARLENE, THIS COMMENT IS FOR YOU! I am a white man and have grown up around black folks all my life. I live in an apartment building where half of my neighbors are black. They are wonderful people . All of them. I personally don’t look at life through the prism of color. I sometimes wish were were all born blind and would not know or care of what a person’s color is. I judge a person by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. You might ask have I ever used the “N” word. The answer is yes. The “N” word to me means low life scum. Low life scumbags appears in all races and colors and that the way I look at that word. I have called more “white people the “N” word than I have called any other race 0r color that. I do understand it has a particular sensibility to a black person and try to keep it out of my vocabulary as much as I can. I understand what Holder and Obama are trying to do here. It’s called “divide and conquer”. I believe that Obama has no intentions about leaving the presidency. He has thumbed his nose at federal judges recently and sees himself as a dictator. He uses the black community time and time again an d sad to say most keep falling for his deception. The sad part of it all is there are so many more decent black candidates that could have made a better president than Obama that didn’t run. Obama has a track record now and despite the cover he gets from the “cover his ass” media all the time I believe most people of all races and colors have him figured out by now and know what his game is. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

    SEIU Protesters Disrupt Ohio Senators’ Dinner, Accost Restaurant Workers

    Ohio’s fight over collective bargaining spoiled dinner for a number of Republican state lawmakers Wednesday evening.

    Easy Street Cafe

    Following the state Senate’s vote to limit the bargaining power of public employees, a group of union protesters burst into a local eatery and confronted a small group of GOP senators who were having dinner. The Columbus Dispatch reports:

    After the vote on Senate Bill 5, seven Republican senators, including President Tom Niehaus, R-New Richmond, grabbed dinner at the Easy Street Cafe. As the lawmakers neared the end of their meal, a group of five to 10 union supporters angry about the passage of the bill hours before burst into the restaurant and began shouting.

    The commotion eventually led to pushing and shoving with the restaurant staff and owner, before police arrived to calm the situation as a police helicopter hovered overhead. No senators were involved in the physical altercations, and no charges have been filed.

    “It could have (gotten physical),” said Sen. Frank LaRose, 31, a Fairlawn Republican who served as a Green Beret. “The group was agitated and they were shoving the owner, and he had nothing to do with this.”

    LaRose said it didn’t take special intelligence training to notice that while the lawmakers were eating, a woman walked past the window several times, poked her head in the door and got on her cell phone.

    “It was planned,” LaRose said. “They gathered as a group and waited until they had about 10 people before they caused a disturbance.”

    When the group burst into the restaurant, the woman, Monica Moran, deputy director of public affairs for SEIU District 1199, raised her hands in the air, yelled “Can I have your attention?“ and then shouted ”something nasty,” LaRose said. Soon after, the rest of the group of men and women joined in with a chant.

    Restaurant owner George Stefanidis says police came after the protesters refused to leave. Witnesses said Stefanidis and his restaurant staff tried to hold the group back from the senators, but the altercation got heated when the agitators began pushing and shoving.

    “They stormed through my dining room,” Stefanidis said. “I told them they had to leave, and they wouldn’t. There were about 70 people in the restaurant at the time.

    “I understand [the protesters’] argument, but they should do that some other place,” he added. “It just ruined the whole night.”

    Moran, however, was unapologetic about the ambush. “The moment of discomfort Senate Republicans may have felt as a result of my expressing my opinion pales in comparison to the extreme discomfort and financial hardships that public employees will endure as a result of SB5.”

    Good morning Co-Conspirator Sami!

    What these Union workers and supporters don’t understand is that the Union leaders are Pro Commie. They need to wake up, but with being dumbed down and indoctrinated in the Public Indoctrination School System (PISS), the stand no chance.

  48. samiam60 says:

    The word is beginning to get out now thanks to Glenn Beck and people like us. The libs don’t like discovering they have been played by the Communists and are in denial trying to defend their position. We are crushing them and their ideology. It is more like an idiotology!

  49. Foxwood says:

    I get most of them saying “I’m not a Commie, how can you say that?” They don’t see that they symbols they use are the same symbols the Communists and Socialists use. They have been dumbed down or they are propagating the Commie/Social agenda. Most of these Commies are Godless. That is what Communism wants. They are useful idiots.

    They are the true racists of the 21st century. Woefully operating from a dated mindset.

    Mired in hatred, Eric Holder is. It’s a damn shame these angry, hateful people are currently ‘leading’ our nation.

  56. arlenearmy says:

    Thanks M2
    Holder really should not had made his feelings seem so obvious. This will make non-white people think that he’s racially bias for damn sure. He was basically saying that what the Panthers did was minor in comparison to what happened in slavery days. That’s like saying that if a Jew assaults a German descent, it’s OK because it pales in comparison to the holocaust. That is wrong & Holder knows it.

    I don’t know how he’s going to walk the statement back, but it surely will be brought up to Obama in the presidential debate.

    So, Who Is Cleaning Up the Wisconsin Capitol After Union Protests?

    The protesters may be out, but the garbage left behind most definitely is not.

    Cleanup cost estimates range from $347,500 to $7,500,000, depending on who you ask.

    So, who is going to take out the trash?

    Tea party supporters have taken to Facebook to organize an event called “It’s Time to Take Out the Trash!”:

    It’s not about partisanship or protests, but pride.

    It is time to take out the trash… literally. In true Flash Mob fashion, on Sunday at exactly 1300 hours (1:00 pm for you non-military types) we will do an extensive police call (pick up the trash) around the capitol square. Regardless of the state the grounds are in, we will do this as both a literal and symbolic way to show our respect for our home.

    TEA Partiers know how this is done. It is time to show OUR pride for OUR state OUR way and be the example.
    Even if you cannot attend, please share this and invite all of your sane friends who share our love of Wisconsin.

    No signs, no screaming, just a necessary cleaning.

    Four time bombs that will blow up Wall Street
    Commentary: Too late to jail bank CEOs; only revolution will succeed

    By Paul B. Farrell, MarketWatch

    SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Put Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein in jail for six months, and all this will stop, all over Wall Street and America, a former congressional aide tells Matt Taibbi in his latest Rolling Stone attack, “Why Isn’t Wall Street in Jail? Financial crooks brought down the world’s economy — but the feds are doing more to protect them than to prosecute them.”

    Taibbi’s right, everyone knows Wall Street’s run by a bunch of dictators who are doing more damage to democracy and capitalism than North Africa’s dictators. But jail the CEOs of Goldman, Citi, B. of A. or my old firm Morgan Stanley? Too late.
    Berkshire contemplates acquisitions

    Jamie Heller and Erik Holm discuss the implications of the newly released letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders from billionaire investor Warren Buffett.

    Only a revolution will stop Wall Street’s self-destructive capitalism. And watching the people revolt against dictators like Mubarak and Gadhafi reminds us of the spirit that sparked America’s revolution in 1776. But today we need a 1930s-style revolution.

    During the S&L crisis two decades ago America had a backbone, indicted 3,800 executives and bankers. Today’s leaders have no backbone. Besides jail time won’t reform the darkness consuming Wall Street’s soul. We’re all asleep, in denial about the moral crisis facing America. Yes, we need a new revolution.

    Jail time? We’ve heard that many times before. Journalists have been beating that dead horse for three years. Jailing CEOs made sense in early 2009. But our naïve president missed that opportunity, instead surrounded himself with Wall Street insiders as Bush did with Blankfein’s predecessor. Trojan Horses manipulating a Congress filled with clueless Dems mismanaging tired Keynesian theories.

    Taibbi got it right: Washington’s error was in protecting Wall Street’s billion-dollar crooks when they should have been prosecuting CEOs for criminal behavior in getting us into the 2008 mess. So today, the political statute-of-limitations has run. Jail solution is wishful thinking, like praying to the tooth fairy for a miracle. Time for action. Time for a revolution on Wall Street.
    Jail Wall Street? Old news. They got away with it. We chickened out

    “Jail Bank CEOs” makes a great sound bite in the cable pundits’ echo chamber. Remember Taibbi’s earlier indictment of Goldman Sachs: the “world’s most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.”

    But so what? Just three years after Wall Street’s crooks “brought down the world’s economy” Goldman’s Blankfein and his buddies are paying record bonuses, and laughing at us.

    Seriously, think about it folks: Since the 2008 meltdown magazines and newspapers have analyzed the 2008 crash to death. It really is old news, history. Journalists churned out book after book: “Greenspan’s Bubbles,” “House of Cards,” “Trillion Dollar Meltdown,” “13 Bankers,” “Dumb Money,” “Bailout Nation,” “All the Devils Are Here,” “The Big Short,” “Too Big to Fail,” “The Failure of Capitalism,” “This Time is Different,” “And Then the Roof Caved In,” on and on, ad nauseum. All talk, no action, and no effect.

    Get it? With every book, every editorial, every expose the past three years, Wall Street bankers actually grew stronger, got richer, more arrogant, bolder on bonuses, impervious to attacks, even taunting us, like the dictators Mubarak, Ben Ali and Gadhafi, confident they could do no wrong, confident no one would rebel. Jail? Our moment to act is long past. We blinked.

    Yes folks, Wall Street is the “Comeback Kid” story of the 21st century. Like a terrorist in a horror film, Wall Street thrives on threats. Three short years ago, Wall Street was virtually bankrupt, a ward of the state. We could have jailed “just one” of them back then, when they were down for the count. Instead, we bailed them out! Made them richer. Gave them $13.7 trillion, loans, credits, cash, asset buyouts. Gave them keys to the Treasury. They didn’t just recover, they “ran the tables,” to use a blackjack/pool metaphor. Now Wall Street dictators have absolute power, ruling Washington, America, you and me.
    Yes, America’s bankrupt, but the rich just do not care

    Admit it, we lost the opportunity. Jail a bank CEO and Wall Street will miraculously reform? You’re joking, right? Wall Street got away with a “legal” bank heist. Today the should-be/would-be inmates are running the prison.

    Wall Street’s corrupt banks have lost their moral compass … their insatiable greed has become a deadly virus destroying its host nation … their campaign billions buy senate votes, stop regulators’ actions, manipulate presidential decisions. Wall Street money controls voters, runs America, both parties. Yes, Wall Street is bankrupting America.

    Wake up America, listen:

    *

    “Our country is bankrupt. It’s not bankrupt in 30 years or five years,” warns economist Larry Kotlikoff, “it’s bankrupt today.”
    *

    Economist Peter Morici: “Capitalism is broken, America’s government is two bankrupt political parties bankrupting the country.”
    *

    David Stockman, Reagan’s budget director: “If there were such a thing as Chapter 11 for politicians” the “tax cuts would amount to a bankruptcy filing.”
    *

    BusinessWeek recently asked analyst Mary Meeker to run the numbers. How bad is it? America really is bankrupt, with a “net worth of a negative $44 trillion.” Bankrupt.

    And it will get worse. Unfortunately, nothing can stop America’s self-destructive Wall Street bankers. They simply do not care that their “doomsday capitalism” is destroying themselves from within, and is bankrupting America too.

    One mega-millionaire sent me an email after reading my Jan. 4 column, “America’s worst 10 years start now.”

    “Paul, you may well be right about the coming decade, but the rich exist in a different world from the one you write about. They live privileged lives in gated communities. Meet for holidays at the world’s elite resorts. The richest just aren’t worried about today’s economy like your readers. Their issues revolve around who’s the best masseuse, best Pilates teacher, best concierge medical doctor, which private school to choose, what investments they are making at this time, etc. Folks at the top are not concerned with the underlying deterioration of America, except in the abstract, because they aren’t directly affected. That’s why no amount of information from you will ever change things. To them, it’s irrelevant. Best wishes, always enjoy your stuff.”
    4 ticking time bombs that will ignite the Wall Street revolution

    Yes, the rich live in a different world. And no, information won’t change them. But a revolution will. Revolutions build slowly over a long time. Then, suddenly, a critical mass, a flash point, something totally unexpected ignites the ticking bomb.

    It happened recently in a remote Tunisian village. Mohamed Bouazizi, a 26-year-old college graduate, unable to pay bribes, set himself on fire to protest police confiscation of his unlicensed vegetable cart. That triggered a revolution. And his death rapidly led to the collapse of a 24-year dictatorship.

    Today we have four hot time bombs, tick-ticking, soon to make history; any one can easily accelerate the revolution that’s already killing Wall Street from within.
    1. Wealth gap: Super-Rich vs class wars, death of democracy

    The gap: In one generation, America’s wealthiest 1% has exploded from 9% to 23% of America’s income, while middle-class income has stagnated. Even Buffett admits: “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and winning.”

    But my rich friend tells the real story, of their social disconnect. The rich just don’t care. They live in a different world, live by a self-centered code lacking a moral compass. The public welfare is honored only if supported by tax benefits.

    The wealth gap is widening and soon something unpredictable will ignite a Wall Street revolution.
    2. Wall Street’s doomsday capitalism vs rule by anarchy

    A key Supreme Court decision accelerated and codified Wall Street’s ability to use billions stolen from taxpayers to lobby Washington and solidify its power, all for its own self-interest, through campaign payola, senators’ votes, presidential access, manipulation of regulators, grabbing tax benefits, etc. And it’s every man and woman for themselves.

    Don’t believe it? Know this, democracy is dead and you’re in denial. Wall Street CEOs and Forbes 400 billionaires are either engaged in a secret conspiracy, or a classic anarchy picking apart America, oblivious of the fact they are setting up the next big revolution.
    3. Pentagon’s perpetual war machine vs America’s budget time bomb

    The mathematics of our $75 trillion Social Security and Medicare deficits often seem insurmountable, but can be recalibrated. However, the war-loving mindset of America’s neocons — fueled by China’s military actions, the insatiable expansion of our military spending and a Pentagon prediction that global population growth — is putting more and more pressure on the world’s scarce resources, and will, in turn, increase global wars and the demand for more war spending, increasing the risk of sudden revolutions everywhere.
    4. Global population explosion vs resources, jobs, better lifestyles

    As the world population explodes from 7 billion to 10 billion in the next generation, the demand for more jobs and the pressure on scarce resources will increase, while expectations will fall as the ratio of haves to have-nots increases, making the world all around Wall Street a burning powder keg setting up a revolution.

    Bottom line: Forget jailing Wall Street’s dictators. It’s naïve and too late. We missed that opportunity. But a revolution will do the trick, give us a second chance to jail the crooks.

    Until then, remember, these four factors are building to a head, merging into a critical mass that will accelerate into a revolution and destroy Wall Street from within: The widening wealth gap, capitalism’s new rule-by-anarchy, the high cost of feeding the Pentagon’s costly war machine, and the huge global population explosion.

    Impeach him. I agree. Looks like we got lied to about Obuttholecare also. They are double counting the savings from Medicare.

    OdipStick has done a 180 reverse on Gitmo. Will now allow trials there in addition to not shutting it down. Typical leftist political scams, like attacking Bush over Gitmo, puts crap on their own face when reality forces them to back down and adopt Bush’s policies.

    Right Mr. “I reserve the right to talk to any tin-hat dictator without preconditions” Obama? AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Of course the Left Wing Sheep will change their attitude on que as commanded by the Community-Organizer-In-Chief who is both clueless and a moron, in addition to dangerously pretending to be an actual president and a hugger of both the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR for no other reason than they too hate “Whitey” as much as Obarf-Breath and AG Eric “Give My People who are Criminals a Pass and Screw All You Law-Abiding Whiteys” Holder does.

    Good Morning Foxwood! and Everyone!

    Seems the Liberals are holding their breath until they get their way in Wisconsin and the Gov apparently is going to compromise.

    Maybe that is smart in a very limited way to put the DEMS in a worse light as they have no intentions of giving in on anything meaningful.

    I have not seen anyone in the blogosphere, politics, or the media correctly label the DEM WISC 14 for what they are really up to: They are staging a STRIKE, a legislative strike. Since when do Senators get a pass on staging a legislative strike? That hole needs to be plugged in state constitutions to prevent it from happening again by making it illegal to the point the Legislators going out on such a strike get automatically fired… permanently and barred from public service for life.

  82. AFVET says:

    It appears they like Illinois.
    Let them stay there while Wisconsin holds a special election to replace them.

  83. Bob Mack says:

    No compromise. Disbar the DEM14.

  84. VotingFemale says:

    Good Morning AFVET! Bob Mack!

    Gotta love the desperation and outing of the DEMS for what they are… un-lawabiding asshats who will do ANYTHING to dominate the American Taxpayers.

  85. Foxwood says:

    Good morning Co-Conspirators Bob, AFVET and VF!

    When are Conservatives going to act like Obutthole and just say “We won”? Republicans were voted in WISC for a reason. If you go by the polls, you are not going by what you were elected to do. Do your job, and if the people don’t like it, they will vote you out. THAT IS HOW IT’S SUPPOSED TO WORK!

  86. VotingFemale says:

    Fox, the reason is that the left has the full force of the Propaganda Spewing Backside-Covering Lamestream Media who will never attack the Socialists and will find any excuse to attack Conservatives without truth or justification.

    This is a problem Conservatives face. Thus we have to walk a fine line with respect to public opinion whereas the Leftists get passes 24/7 from the Media who has their back.

    We were falsely accused of all sorts of things that we dont do and that the Leftists do without reservation. We must deal in facts and catch Leftists with the facts thus no where to run and hide.

    The Leftists are total racists and liars and enemies of this country but they have much of the media on their side and they attack the Conservative Media with everything they can muster to silence them and thus operate free of reporting.

    We are still winning in spite of all that, though. The Left blames that success on what they label as Right Wing Propaganda, which it is not… it is truth which we are forced to use. It is enough but it is a long battle drawn out battle and will be so long as the Leftists are entrenched in so many Media companies.

    That media has given a pass to Obama on Gitmo in the past day… yet carved up Bush for what Obama is now allowing for Gitmo and trials there.

    Double-Standard… but at least Obama was forced to bend to our will on Gitmo ;P AAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    Obama Lost on Gitmo and Conservatives Won! The Lamestream Media will now ignore it all for the most part. Gotta Love It!
