June 28, 2012: The Republican-majority House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder for criminal contempt of Congress.
The Vote: 255 YEA vs. 65 NAY. Seventeen Democrats voted YEA.
149 Democrats stormed out in a huff, refusing to vote as a demonstration of their contempt for the contempt vote. It’s a shame the figures in this video are so small. I can’t tell if these immature whiners are waddling like the toddlers with loaded diapers that they apparently are channeling. Were they all singing “Neener neener neener” as well?
Democrats “Walk it Out” on House GOP Contempt Vote on Attorney General Eric Holder [:28]
On the plus side, The Holder vote kept House Democrats too busy to do much crowing at disappointed Republicans over the failure of SCOTUS to overturn ObamaCare that same morning.
Not that I care if they crow. IMHO, the Supreme Court did us all a favor by refusing to let 5 guys in robes make such a far-reaching decision the way they did with Roe v. Wade. That kind of thing belongs in the legislature where voters have more power.
Plus, now that SCOTUS has officially ruled that the “buy health insurance or else” mandate is a TAX, we have more fodder for November to throw at the Obama Democrats who swear they never raised any taxes on the middle class.
Even better, those who were ONLY concerned about overturning ObamaCare will now be highly motivated to jump into the fray and work alongside the rest of us to get the Obama Democrats OUT OF OFFICE.
