At a press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday, Speaker Boehner was asked about Attorney General Eric Holder’s racial demagoguery in front of Al Sharpton’s group, the National Action Network at their Annual convention, yesterday. The nation’s top law enforcement officer whined that he had faced “unprecedented, unwarranted ugly adversity” and asked, “what Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? “
Reported Chad Pergram asked, “in a speech yesterday the Attorney General suggested that he was treated, and perhaps this president and others in the administration were treated a certain way because of race. Even if that’s not intentional by members of Congress, is that a problem for members of your party when they go after members of the administration?
To his eternal credit, Speaker Boehner didn’t hesitate to shoot down Holder’s accusation, answering bluntly that “there is no issue of race here.” He explained, “the frustration is that the American people have not been told the truth about what happened at the IRS. The American people have not been told the truth about what happened in Fast and Furious. The administration has not told the American people about Benghazi. We have been going through all of these hearings, having to hold people in contempt because they have made it impossible to get to the documents. They have not been forthcoming; they owe the American people the truth. When it comes to Benghazi we’ve got four Americans who are dead. Their families deserve the truth about what happened and the administration refuses to tell them the truth.”
