    Wait....what? Are you trying to say that the DoJ is only responsible for crime that involves "civil rights issues"? That is not true. Black on black crime most certainly something that the DoJ is supposed to "concern itself" with. The DoJ doesn't exist to only "concern" itself with white on black crimes.

    The DoJ is concerned with federal crimes. Civil rights violations are a federal crime. Otherwise, most man on man crime, regardless of race, is the domain of the states unless such crime crosses into a civil rights violation.

    What can we exect of Obama's next pick as Attorney General? He must hurry before the Senate turns over control.

    The next AG will have to have at least two of the following traits:

    1)Be a civil rights activist and ardent socialist

    2)Be non-White or at least non-Christian

    3)Be a female

    4)Be a homosexual

    holder was a screw-up for many other reasons, but F & F was really no big deal in comparison.

    Do you believe that the US govt. was entirely flawless or even close to being flawless prior to F & F when it came to arming drug dealers or other terrorist groups?

    Are you blind? Or just ill-informed. Holder is a #1 and #2.-----also pro-gay.

    You forgot:
    -doesn't know how to pay taxes
    -Donated at least $50K to the DNC or one or both of Obama's election campaigns.

    I'm fine with all of that so long as they aren't an activist while acting as judge, and follow/uphold the law.

    I agree. Not a fan at all. Now I hear he's going to be a wall street lawyer out there to continue to protect those he refused to jail for their crimes in the economic devastation they caused in the housing scandal and banking scandals in the last recession.
