Dems had enough of Obama’s edicts and obstructionism- SMACK DOWN a’comin!
-Dems To Vote For Contempt Charge Against Eric Holder (WHI RELATED)
Democratic Party House member Steny Hoyer is openly indicating to the Obama White House to be prepared for Democrats to support a contempt charge against Obama Attorney General Eric Holder.
Now that the politically potent National Rifle Association is keeping score, some Democrats may join House Republicans if there’s a vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress in a dispute over documents related to a botched gun-tracking operation.
The chief Democratic House head counter, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, declined to tell reporters how many defections he expected, but acknowledged that some in his party would consider heeding the NRA’s call for a “yes” vote.
A longtime D.C. political operative indicated this afternoon that as many as 30 Democratic members of Congress will join with the Republican House majority in voting in favor of a Contempt of Congress charge against Eric Holder should it come to a vote later this week.
They are throwing out the racism charge big time. So far Boehner ain’t blinking. More than a few whispers about
They got something. It better be enough or this could blow up in our faces bad. Hanging way out there for Issa and Co right now. They better have what they promise or a bunch of us are gonna get stung bad on this. Right now though, there are as many as 30 Dems hinting they will vote for contempt. Got to think some of those votes are as much of a big f-ck you to Pelosi as anything. I would have had the vote on Wed instead of Thurs. Will get drowned out by the coverage on Obamacare ruling. Guessing that’s what Boehner wanted though. He’s still nervous. He isn’t running away, but he isn’t exactly throwing heavy punches yet either. Nice to see all the work coming toghether though. Wish the Old Man was more aware of how good we are doing right now. Shit. You hang tough too. Things getting done now. Enjoy the ride. But be ready for the bumps. No way we come out of this without some scrapes.
BIG HUGS… Ulsterman!
