    Dems need to learn: Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away

    Dems need to learn: Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away

    While it isn’t a new strategy, it seems as if the left has recently been ratcheting up its utilization of the stonewalling tactic when confronted by high profile controversy.

    Elizabeth Warren, who continues to show no signs of ever engaging in an honest discussion with the public about her bogus claims to Cherokee ancestry, isn’t the only one who is wishing that sticking one’s head in the sand would make the bad questions go away. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is also facing strong criticism for not being forthcoming about the role of the Department of Justice in the Fast and Furious scandal.

    According to the Daily Caller, California Representative Tom McClintock has now become the 129th member of the House of Representatives to have signed a “no confidence” resolution in Eric Holder, demanded the Attorney General’s resignation, or both.

    Holder has demonstrably failed to comply with all 22 parts of a congressional subpoena that House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa served him last October. With respect to 13 of the subpoena’s categories, Holder has provided no documents. He is not fully compliant with the subpoena’s other sections, either.

    Holder may soon be held in contempt of Congress if he continues failing to comply with the subpoena. House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy joined Issa’s efforts to force Holder to comply with the subpoena recently.

    In a phone interview Friday morning, Gosar said the possibility of contempt proceedings against Holder remains – although he and many others want the proceedings to happen faster.

    “A number of us are frustrated,” Gosar told The Daily Caller. “After Deputy Attorney General [James] Cole’s comments last week [claims that the DOJ has cooperated with the investigation], my comment was ‘let’s get this on.’ Let’s start going forward with contempt charges. I even asked for it to be done this week, or yesterday, or as early as next week.”

    Just as Warren’s stonewalling has begun to slowly erode her support, I suspect too that Holder will soon suffer similar troubles.

    Warren and Holder may have to learn the hard way that ignoring a controversy won’t make it go away. If they keep stonewalling, people will just keep digging.

    Boehner is just another political hack. He will do what is best fir Boehner and screw the Country.
    He needs to grow a pair and get on with the Contempt of Congress against Holder and subpoena Obama to testify about his involvement in Fast and Furious, Solyndra, Lightsquared, New Black Panther Party and all of the other scandals. There are so many, I can’t remember them all.
    Keep this stuff on the front burner and let it fester. Ultimately the ABC’s will get on board or be co-opted by not reporting these scandals.

    I hope they keep right on stonewalling until November.

    If Fast and Furious had anything to do with prohibiting tanning beds, Boehner would be on it in a heart beat!

    Boehner and the Establishment aren’t part of the solution, they’re part of the PROBLEM.
