  •  I blame Obama & Holder for this, in part (6+ / 0-)

    They absolutely REFUSE to go after any of the following, even when they have every right AND obligation to do so under US law and any sense of propriety:

    Far-right militias
    Abusive local and state law enforcement
    NRA/Gun lobby/Gun stores
    Abusive financial firms and their execs
    Governors and state legislatures that violate civil rights and liberties

    If you're white, far-right, rich or otherwise have power, or can threaten the president politically, you can do pretty anything you want in these United States. Sure, he might come out and make a plaintive speech, but he's not going to actually do anything to back it up. This president's got nothing.

    And everybody knows it.

    No drama Obama. Now we all know what that really means: no action.
