    Unfortunately, Holder was a hard core partisan which explains how his legacy is viewed by other partisans. To me he was Obama's AG not mine.

    Neither Holder nor Lerner will ever see the inside of a jail. My guess is that they are both going to get thrown under the bus and then pardoned, just to keep them quiet about the whole truth. Look for an investigation coming during the last two years of Pres. Obama's term where the Reps. will be repeatedly vilified for a carrying out a witch hunt and then a sudden confession to minimal actions, followed by a sentencing, followed by a pardon. The worst of these crimes will get swept under the rug in exchange for the Reps. getting to be the heroes in this with no further condemnation from the WH.

    GHW may have nominated him for the Supreme Court, but he served in other legal positions at the federal level during Reagan's Administration before serving in the lower courts under GHWB and then ultimately being confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice during his tenure. Thus, I think it's fair to ask even to this day whether or not Justice Thomas was the culmination of the GOP filling the Negro quota at the judiciary level. In all honesty, however, it's no different than asking if Justices Sotamayer or Kagan were the culmination of Pres. Obama fulfilling the Woman's Lib quota. All three Justices were minorities, right? Moreover, both Presidents felt the pressure from their respective Party to bring more minorities in at key positions. So, sarcastic or not, I think it fair to ask such a question whether being tongue-N-cheek or otherwise.

    But like I said, I was being sarcastic because it's all water under the bridge at this point. Nonetheless, it helps to read books on these such matters to gain a broader perspective and understanding of how such things really shaped up.
    However your post was still racist. "Darkie" is a term not in much use since the segregation era. To the point, I don't have a problem with Reagan appointing an African American to a post partially to add ethnic diversity...as long as the appointee is qualified. When HW Bush nominated him to the US Supreme Court, I did find the attack on Clarence Thomas by the left to be quite repugnant. They pulled out all stops. It was not so much that Thomas was a conservative nominee. It was that he was an African American conservative. The left sees conservative minorities as a threat. They feel that they own minorities and get quite frightened of a high profile minority conservative perhaps drawing minority followers to the conservative side.

    Even if they were sentence to any form of prison term...it would be at one that is more like a federal country club. There living quarters would likely be more upscale then yours or mine.

    Personally I think it's going to backfire on the democrat party.


    Tell us all about it 30 years from now after the GOP is reduced to a minor, regional, party.

    I think a lot of people who claim to be "liberal" are the very opposite. I suspect some of them resent Justice Thomas because he was uppity enough to marry a white woman. Others probably resent him for having what may well be the sharpest legal mind on the Court (Ms. Sonia "The Wise Latina" Sotomayor having, odds on, the dimmest). I've read enough Supreme Court decisions to know the ones that are well-reasoned from the ones that are not, and Thomas has written some that are brilliant. His dissent in the Thornton term limits case and his more recent concurrence in McDonald v. Chicago, the landmark case that applied the Second Amendment to the states, are just a couple examples.

    Eric Holder's talents, in contrast, are wading neck-deep in slime to arrange the details of B.J. Clinton's eleventh-hour pardon of Marc Rich, defending Muslim jihadist war criminals for free, and serving as President Pinocchio's racial agitator and all-around butt boy. If he is ever nominated to the Supreme Court, I hope the Senate does everything it can possibly think of to block that nomination--he is completely incompetent to serve on it.

    One of the reasons why a lot of changes happen is because the people who will be negatively effected by them don't believe that they're going to happen.

    Don't ever say that you weren't warned.

    Care to take that assertion back? Holder announced his resignation. Don't think that'll be taken back.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels
