On day of contempt vote Eric Holder skips town, heads to Disney World

On the day in which the U.S. House of Representatives has determined that Attorney General Eric Holder’s actions are egregious enough to warrant a criminal contempt vote, the AG has skipped town and headed to … Disney World.

According to the National Journal’s Daybook, Holder will be addressing the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) during a convention at a Disneyworld Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Members of Congress will decide in a series of contempt votes whether Attorney General Holder will be held in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over a substantial number of the documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal that caused the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Last week, Obama claimed executive privilege on the documents related to the Fast and Furious Investigation, a move that has angered many Americans and indicated the possibility of a cover-up.

Many Democrats have attempted to politicize the issue, falsely claiming that House Republican’s contempt vote is an act of racism that has more to do with their efforts to surpress votes than finding out the truth about the operation and Terry’s death. The Congressional Black Caucus has scheduled a public walk-out during Holder’s contempt vote, to protest the sanctions against the Attorney General.

Though he will likely be held in contempt by Congress on all counts, for now Holder should just try and enjoy his time at “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” The Attorney General can rest easy knowing that the President and his Democratic friends in Congress will have his back while he is kickin’ it with Mickey Mouse.

    Arrest Holder, Impeach Obama – for terrorism against medical marijuana patients.

  3. bigmoe52 says:

    And how appropriate. After all, Holder is “Goofy”.

  4. Anne says:

    Wow, I would love to go on vacation. We haven’t been able to afford it in years.

    1. Anne says:

      Vacation? What’s a vacation? Oh, those trips Obozo goes on every day?

      1. John says:

        Guess which (most recent former) president took the most vacations while in office?
        …Go ahead, guess…

        1. FreedomCat says:

          Uh, Obummer of course. And yes he is the most recent former president ever.

        2. joe says:

          Yea but Bush went to camp david, Texas etc. He didnt go to Hawaii, Marthas Vineyard, Europe to the tune of millions of tax dollars. They didnt take seperate jets either with us flipping the fuel bill. Do your research before you talk or stfu…

          1. dee says:

            Obama is the worst offender in using the Oval Office for his personal gain.

        3. Dee says:

          U dolt, first of all the Former President you are speaking about , went home to his OWN PLACE..didnt need 10 jets, one for the dog and didnt fly in all his extended family to meet him there. Didnt need 100 sec svc agents, and it didnt cost taxpayers an arm and a leg to have him return to his OWN Home for his Holidays. (NICE TRY)

      2. Fred says:

        No Anne, get it right. The trips Barry goes on every day are fundraisers for his campaign. Vacations are what he does once a week.

      3. Russ Davis says:

        Of course. He’s a community organizer. You don’t think he actually ever works or has ever actually worked for a living do you? He’s a Demoncrap, and they’re all about handouts, not actual work, which they vote out of GOP coffers, and the GOP fools are so incompetent they give it to them. Dems are evil, the GOP incompetent, with friends like that America doesn’t need any enemies, or was that enemas.

    2. jp says:

      Yes, because it’s, of course, “their” fault.

  5. CurlyBill says:

    Well . . . . .. .bye.

  6. Glenn says:

    Holder is probably asking Fidel if he can move in.

  7. Anita Job says:

    Holder wants to visit the new Disney attraction called “Fast and Furious”.

  8. sebastian woof says:

    Holder should visit the Haunted Mansion
    to get a feel of how the White House will be on November 6th.

  9. Aleric says:

    Holder isnt worried, he has had the Pardon the Pretender in Chief wrote him last year in his desk drawer waiting to be used.

    1. Susan Daniels says:

      More like a “Get out of Jail Free” card.

  10. Frank says:

    4 more months…just 4 more months…

    1. GIUSEPPINA says:

      THANKS BE TO GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Goofygus says:

    At least he is not being hypocritical about how his priorities are lined up!

  12. TeaPartyNation says:

    On day of contempt vote Eric Holder skips town, heads to Disneyworld…Disneyworld is just a lame version of the REAL FANTASY-LAND – that of lunatic-left d-cRAT socialism.

  13. gwbnyc says:

    Cuba is only 90 miles away.

    1. c says:

      Disneyworld is in Orlando, which is in the center of Florida. Nice try. Suggest you consult an atlas and a United States Constitution (not Articles of Confederation, thank you very much) before you defenestrate on the internet again.

  14. StageCoachDriver says:

    Hey, AG Holder, you just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do now?

    “I’m going to Disney World!”

  15. jukin says:

    Hey Eric Holder you just got contempt of Congress charges filed against what are you going to do now?

    I’m going to Disneyland!!

  16. Zippy says:

    Did you hear? SCOTUS has ruled the mandate uncontitutional! No? Oh.

  17. daddy warbucks says:

    “Holder will be addressing the League of United Latin American Citizens”
    ??????
    And how many mexicans died because of ‘Fast and Furious’?

    When will we hear from Latinos?

    1. Carol says:

      Hispanics in the U. S. couldn’t care less about the 250 to 400 Mexicans murdered with assault weapons as a result of botched Fast & Furious. As long as they get ‘theirs’, let their brothers and sisters south of the border eat cake! There is a certain irony to this monster addressing them though, and these poor emotional saps probably don’t have a clue that he’s responsible for murdering their countrymen.

  18. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Disneyworld.

  19. Richard says:

    So what Latin American countries are all of those members of the “League of United Latin American Citizens”, citizens of? Costa Rica? Equador? Mexico? Guatamala? El Salvador?

  20. Fitzzz says:

    Under Obama, and Holder race relations in this country have sunk to lows that I have never seen in my lifetime, and I have been around quite a while
    If either one of them is ever questioned on anything, the race card gets pulled out of the deck
    I for one am really really tired of it, also tired of the chorus behind them, Al Sharpton, Jesse jackson, Chris mathews, Shiela Lee jackson, Maxine Waters, etc etc
    The signal they have sent to all blacks is, just scream RACIST and the white folk will back down
    Well I wont back down, and to use a very old saying, lets call a spade a spade

    1. dee says:

      This is called Prejudice In Reverse. How unfair to use the race card for these offenders.

  21. Jeff Wolf says:

    Can someone explain to me how Eric Holder could be at Disney World when he had a press conference in NEW ORLEANS shortly after the contempt vote???

  22. Jake says:

    I am sure he told them that with ObamaCare Tax Act they will have photo ID’s cards so now they don’t had to worry about not being able to vote!
    Amnesty is here and living with Obama.

  23. Sherry says:

    Don’t you usually go to Disney World AFTER you’ve won something?

  24. Ben says:

    He’s probably consulting with Janet Reno; they did work together on several ****ups during her tenure as AG.

  25. Freud says:

    What did you expect from a chinless coward?

  26. Joshua Younger says:

    We’ll only hear from them when it’s about policies that affect the ability of millions of their fellows to flood our nation….one issue voters. “Hasten the downfall of our once United society!”

  27. LololololoL says:

    Wow Republicans are such cry babies. I love it! Hahahahaha!!!

  28. David Wilkinson says:

    It seems that the Black Caucus members are the racists, playing that card when it does not exist in order to deflect attention away from the truth. Typical Dumbocrats.

  29. WilliamPenn says:

    Memo to Amerika: In your face! Sincerely, Comrade Holder

  30. cassisanass says:

    Senior, Holder mi padre es en enfirm por que fast y furious. vaya con satan,

  31. skyhook says:

    he will fit right in with mickey mouse

  32. Rachel says:

    This murderer Holder is such an arrogant pos. If we’re lucky he’ll fall off a roller coaster. That’s the ONLY justice that Brian Terry’s family and the families of those dead Mexican citizens are ever going to get.

  33. daveinga says:

    there is a perfectly logical explanation for holder going to disney. the gov. has a program where supervisors can go and learn lessons from businesses on management styles and morale and such. as it turned out, both disney and this white house’s main players have a lot in common.

    some people have all the luck.

  34. Gork says:

    Wow, all you lunatics in one place. You’all must’ve enjoyed today’s Supreme Court decision – the fat rich guy who tells you what to think and say on the radio everyday will be back on oxy and all your toothless relatives in bib overalls can get some teeth, thanks to affordable health care…

  35. Cpt. Obvious says:

    It’s not his fault. Anyone could mistake DC for Disney world.

  36. John Poland says:

    He doesn’t Uphold laws..He Hides from the law and couldn’t get a job in the private sector…He is a discrace as a Public figure and as a Human Being !! Goofy is on Vacation and Holder is a stand in for him !

  37. Randy says:

    Dem logic:

    Trayvon Martin’s death = National outrage
    Brian Terry’s death = Yawn

  38. JaneDoe says:

    We always knew this was a Mickey Mouse administration. Is it any wonder the big rat went to the land of make-believe on the day he is to be finally held accountable for his bad behavior? Such a small world afterall. Or, maybe like at OKC where he did such a good job covering for Clinton/Reno he is setting up the next false-flag attack against the USA?

  39. templeknight says:

    And this comes as a surprise to whom, holder and his boss have held us and congress as irrelevant
    for the last two years and disneyworld is in this case the same as flipping the bird to congress. If these two remain in power we’re done. Our last hope for the republic comes on November 06; its either a return to the Constitution and rule of law, or a nation on the dole with rationed healthcare and insurmountable debt.

  40. mec says:

    Fine. We can hope that he got his ticket from the Make A Wish Foundation.

  41. Syd says:

    Maybe he is cutting holes in the perimeter fence so we can get into Disney World free of charge!

  42. john smith says:

    Pulling a page from the boss’s book. Get a nice vacation, on the tax payer, while you can…

  43. Texasbil says:

    Holder is a liar and a Chicago hood. I can’t believe we have people like this in office. Wake up America and vote.

  44. Mike says:

    He seems to have caught the “Wisconsin Democrat fever”…

  45. Jersey Dave says:

    Yeah Holder is Goofy and Obama Kenya king is Dumbo.
    Let those disgraceful Chicago thugs and the Racist Black Caucus keep
    On walking hopefully off a short pier…Vote them out people before we totally
    lose our country. They must go down in flames this election.
    These incompetent criminals should be charged with treason and hung..
    Not reelected they should at the very least be cell mates, don’t drop the soap…
    These delusional idiots believe their own lies…Criminals, racist, murders oh my…

    1. dee says:

      My contention is more on the backers in the Senate especially, who use every excuse to allow all the undercover tactics that go on in the Oval Office. There is a balance call which allows the Senate and Congress to vote Aye or Nay, and people like Barbara Boxer, Pelosi and especially Harry Reed, are all a part of weakening America for the sake of liberalism. This is so sad. Popularity in the districts are what places certain people in office who have control over our lives.

  46. Willy Brown says:

    So Holder made another trip to the White House…
