Eric Holder -- Lying Doesn't Bother Him a Bit

From the "How Can They Say These Things With a Straight Face?" Department comes this brazen baloney from Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General. In defense of the DOJ's anti-business (and quite) unconstitutional attacks on the Gibson Guitar Company, Holder said, "The actions that we take in all matters, are based on the facts, the law, and the enforcement responsibilities that we have. We have no politics involved. That's not how we make decisions in this department."

Oh no. No politics involved in the Gibson case. Nor in the refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act. Nor in the voter intimidation cover up. Nor in the refusal to obey the law and drill for oil. Nor in the harassment of pro-life protestors and pregnancy help clinics. Nor in the lawsuits against states trying to curb illegal immigration. Nor in the denial of religious freedom rights to Christians. Nor in the numerous anti-business actions where phony environmental concerns trump the needs of the citizenry. Nor in the refusal to investigate and prosecute ACORN and other voter fraud.

"We have no politics involved. That's not how we make decisions in this department."

At least Bill Clinton tried to be affable and unassuming when he lied to the American public. These guys just lay it out there -- arrogantly, defiantly and downright disdainful of the public. They lie and they don't give a rip that people know they're lying. For the liars of the Barack Obama administration are more than mere dissemblers; they are destroyers -- deliberately destroying truth, the rule of law and our democratic way of life.

God save us from such villains.
