Attorney General Eric Holder believes Republicans are critical of him and Barack Obama due to their bromance and because they are black:
Eric Holder is once again under fire from Republicans — this time for pulling the race card to dismiss critics of his tenure as attorney general.
The attorney general cited race in explaining why a “more extreme segment” of his critics were going after him. “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him, both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American,” Holder said in an interview with The New York Times.
Holder has faced more congressional scrutiny than any member of President Obama’s Cabinet. Calls for his resignation on Capitol Hill have mounted as the investigation into the ATF’s Fast and Furious gunrunning probe intensifies. The Republican presidential candidates are as united in calling for Holder’s resignation as they are in calling for the repeal of the federal health care overhaul.
