Republican House leaders are finally holding Attorney General Eric Holder accountable for some of his actions. Representative Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, drafted a 48-page contempt of Congress citation against him. The charge? Repeatedly obstructing and slowing the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious.

This means the top House leaders are on board. The top committee officials met for most of the day in Speaker John Boehner’s office and he gave them permission to move ahead. Finally!

It also needs to roll uphill to those who gave the orders.

And you expect what of this Administration?

It appears that their intent is to play "rope-a-dope" and try to make it to the end of Omaba's term.

If these contempt charges are pursued, one would think that the Administration would either fire A.G. Holder or that he would voluntarily resign.

Perhaps they should take a look back to other incidents where individuals were found guilty of nothing except for lying to federal investigators.

Then again, it may be that Holder is willing to "take one" for the team and leave as a martyr.

More power to the republicans. Embarrass and discreet the squatter and his fellow demokratic domestic terrorist by all means possible. Aim everything at discouraging undecided and middle of the road voters from supporting the demokrats and their toxic agenda.

Past indicators would provide that this will go nowhere, obama will spank them over it, and they will tuck tail, cry and exit stage left.

Please understand our current crisis in Washington on the conservative side..................

A contempt citation from congress is about as effective as a warning ticket from a cop.
