    If John Roberts had failed to mention two briefs that he had written arguing that Roe should have been overturned and that accused terrorists should have no rights, you don't think that we'd be in the middle of two weeks of hearings right now?
    Roberts was being confirmed for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Holder: Attorney General. Slight diff.

    The six briefs to the Supreme Court were not Holder's work alone. In every instance, he was one of a group of prominent lawyers or ex-judges who signed a friend-of-the-court brief.
    Contrary to the right's desire, not every mistake is a conspiracy. I don't think he actually argued any of these before SCOTUS. He signed a brief. Who knows how those were collected to be handed over before his confirmation. He could have been assured they would be in the pile and then a secretary didn't put one pile on top of the other.

    I see he gets no credit for coming forward with the mistake.

    It may not be a non-story but, it's pretty close. Would you believe a simple explanation? Or would you want to ?

    You don't think that's a possibility?

    Whoops! I hadn't seen that. That does make it a tad worse but, only a tad. I'm sure the rightees can't wait to tie him to the stake but, let's wait to see if he comes out with a reason before you light the fire.

    have we lost confidence in him because of his incompetence or his dishonesty?

    does that really matter - we have lost confidence in him. or if you have not, please indicate why you would still believe someone so negligent should remain as our senior law enforcement official

    What about an Attorney General filling the department of justice with a stable full of terrorist-defending attorneys?

    Does that pass your smell test?

    I haven't lost confidence in him. People make mistakes. I'd like to hear his explanation before I condemn him for this one mistake.

    Careful, if you keep that up someone is apt to confuse you with Liz Cheeney.

    You mean like Bush did? You mean like our justice system dictates?

    Interesting how this is such a big deal to rightees, AS IF it is a change in course.

    Re: Att'y general failed to give legal briefs to Senate

    he ASSURED the american people that if ksm and his ilk were brought before the likes of lance ito and acquitted they would never walk american streets free

    never mind that he's PRE CONVICTING the guy, like nixon did with manson, kinda undermining the entire purpose of showing the world america at its best

    obama has done the same, even going so far as to predict a DEATH SENTENCE for the mirandized murderer

    and yet, typically, no surprise, here in this padilla brief holder is arguing the exact opposite of what he swore to before leaky leahy's judiciary

    and it's certainly not just one thing with holder

    like i said:

    there's ksm, moved here, moved there

    there's holder's laughable inability to answer little lindsey graham's gradeschool queries

    there's the abject, humiliating failure over gitmo---NINETY senators, which would include (by simple arithmetic) at least FIFTY dems

    there's the mirandizing mutallab without even making A PHONE CALL to napolitano and brennan

    (that also made for some very embarrassing testimony on the expensive blue carpet upstairs)

    there was the idiot claim on the day after christmas that the SYSTEM WORKED in the skies over detroit

    no, it's a lot more than one thing with this fool

    he should NEVER have been appointed, not after waco, not after marc rich, not after faln

    but obama is in his own little world on these things, some ivory towered world, some ivy covered walled world

    ie, completely out of touch with normal massachusettans

    for example---WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD MENTION OF THE SPECIAL PROSECUTION OF THE CIA FOR TORTURE?

    why can't YOU name the special prosecutor

    mr starr became FAMOUS, mr fitzgerald became FAMOUS

    holder's a complete disgrace, obama should OFF him

    but he won't

    which, as a very partisan opponent of the president, i say---PROSIT!

    party on, progressives

    your party is imploding
