House to vote on holding Attorney General Holder in contempt

Washington (CNN) - The U.S. House will vote Thursday on holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for withholding documents involving the failed Fast and Furious weapons crackdown.

"We're going to proceed," Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters Wednesday. "We've given them ample opportunity to reply."

    This is nothing more than a bunch of Congressional do-nothing Republicans going after anything they can to nick the Obama administration. Just remember... What goes around comes around.

    Boehner's congress is the most disgusting, vile, inept, terrorist group that was elected to bring our country down. It is also a first and is amazing that they would dare vote on anything that does not restrict women's reproductive rights.

    What are they (Holder and Obama) hiding? Turn over the documents and if there is nothing showing guilt, it's over.

    Will he send in the Black Panthers to try to intimidate Congress to vote his way? He authorized it in Philadelphia, but has denied states wanting voter id laws to try to stop the SEIU/ACORN from stealing more elections like they did in the 2008. He is very contemptible.
