Patterico's Pontifications


Eric Holder: Liar

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:45 am

So the President says it would be unprecedented (which it wouldn’t) for the Supreme Court to overturn a law passed by a strong majority of both houses of Congress (which ObamaCare wasn’t).

Then Eric Holder gives the Fifth Circuit a letter saying that, of course, there is a ton of precedent for federal courts overturning laws passed by majorities in Congress.

And Holder ends the letter by saying: “The President’s remarks were fully consistent with the principles described herein.”

And citizens are left screaming: no they weren’t!

But this is what liars do. They lie.

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sockpuppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself.

Sockpuppet comments about the Republican primary race are strictly prohibited. If you wish to use sockpuppets for that purpose, confine your comments to this thread. Same goes for any discussion that is not funny where people want to get angry at each other. Offending comments will be summarily deleted and the violators flogged.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.

If you have not seem today’s disappointing March unemployment report, James Pethokoukis has many of the lowlights.  Meanwhile, Pres. Obama is holding a conference at which he is claiming he is creating “an economy built to last for America’s women,” which apparently does not include an economy that creates jobs for women (or men, for that matter).  Unemployment for women has increased since Obama took office.  The figures are even worse for the young, blacks, hispanics and the less-credentialed.  Yet these demographics all lean Democrat, and will likely vote Democrat in November.  Despite this, the chattering classes of the establishment will continue to ask “What’s the matter with Kansas?” in the misguided partisan belief that only the right votes against its supposed economic interests.  The reality is that the economy has a very mild impact on the voting behavior of partisans, who will rationalize the economic performance of the administrations for which they voted.
