The Republican Party has received one big "yawn" of approval from the people of the United States of America with regard to a contempt charge filed against Attorney General.
Now, the GOP is really REALLY angry.
The sham scandal, cooked up by the House Republicans in an attempt to make a last gasp attempt to hurt the Obama administration before the November elections, is of note and on record that the self-proclaimed fiscally conservative Republicans have no qualms about wasting taxpayer money on a fishing expedition which they hope will provide the evidence they need to defeat the president.
Attorney General Holder has earned their wrath by aggressively pursuing "stand your ground" (such as the one that cost the life of Trayvon Martin and others) and voter ID cases. Holder has also been vigilant in his protection of voting rights, much to the dismay of Republicans.
House Republicans knew that Obama would do the same thing George Bush did in 2001 and assert Executive Privilege over the emails that they want; however, the GOP doesn't care about the facts surrounding "Fast and Furious."
Republicans continue to scream about what a sad day it is for democracy, but their cries are a day late and a trillion dollars short.
It is sad that the majority on a committee would abuse their power in this way, and it is sad that they thought the American people were so dumb as to fall for a contrived scandal of this kind coming from the same folks who abused their own privileges when they had them.
