    They sacrifice Eric Holder because they are afraid of the NRA?? How gutless.
    I best not see any E Mails asking for support for these seventeen suckers.

    Issa has mob mentality, There are probably a lot of ,people who are not familiar with this man’s criminal background. Also he was responsible for the Sandra Fluke debacle!

    There’s another way of looking at the 17 Dems who voted for the contempt citation:

    Maybe — it’s possible that Pelosi or someone advised them to go ahead and vote for the contempt citation — in order to cut down on the certainty that they would be “primary-ed” by the NRA. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices when dealing with crazy people.

    It’s much more important that the Dems win the House back in November than it is to make a brave but sacrificial vote on a meaningless contempt citation.

    That’s exactly what happened Pearl, and to me that’s what makes it Shameful; anyone willing to vote Eric Holder in contempt rather than stand up to the NRA doesn’t get my support, and shouldn’t have a “D” next to his name; it’s gutless.

    The NRA doesn’t issue Congressional subpoenas. Those that walked out are cowards who didn’t want to have the vote on their record. Next time someone who isn’t a Democrat is subpoenaed do you think they’ll be in favor of ignoring the subpoena? Not a chance. Shameful is right. 108 of them.
