This has had to be said for some time. There is nothing worse than a true believer ideologue in office. Judgement, or more properly, common judgement simply goes out the window. In this case it has resulted in obvious miscues that were easily avoided by the simple expedient of begging off until sufficient data was on your desk and outright ignoring early press stories.
That my friend is the thin line between appearing competent and playing the fool.
Obama himself is a paid up member of the naive left that has gone out and drunk heavily of the Koolaid and is typically found only in colleges. Mr holder is showing himself to be of the same cut.
I have no doubt that this writer speaks fro the majority of professional Law enforcement w2ho are all waiting the day of Mr Holder's retirement.
Former FBI Special Agent K. Dee McCown wrote an open letter to Eric Holder. The response has been epic.
Here is the letter:
K. Dee McCown

950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001
Further to this point Mr. Holder, law enforcement officers around the country remain dismayed and shocked at the counsel you keep; that being your close relationship with none other than Al Sharpton, a racist “shake down artist” who spreads hate, divisiveness and the promotion of anti-law enforcement sentiment throughout the country; a tax evading fraudster who has unbelievably visited the White House over 80 times in recent years. It is simply beyond my comprehension as a former federal law enforcement professional, that you, the Attorney General of the United States, joined arms in common cause with a charlatan like “the Reverend” Al Sharpton; and it speaks volumes to your personal character and lack of professional judgment.
