Holder: Failure to Pass Gun Control is My Biggest Failure

Breitbart TV

Attorney General Eric Holder said that his biggest failure during his time as head of the Justice Department was failing to pass expanded gun control laws and criticized former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta for his negative characterizations of the president during an interview aired on Monday’s broadcast of “The Lead” on CNN.

“I think the inability to pass reasonable gun safety laws after the Newtown massacre is, for me, something that I take personally as a failure, and something that I think we as a society should take as a failure” he stated when asked what he considered his greatest failure.  

Holder added that he considered “where we are with regard to our criminal justice reform issues, the stands that we’ve taken against voter suppression efforts, the attempts to include the LGBT community in ways that it has not been before, and to knock down those final vestiges of discrimination” as his biggest successes.

When asked about former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s criticism of President Obama, Holder argued that “the president is a deliberate person in an appropriate way, but he’s also resolute once he makes up his mind. So, I think that what Leon said in the book is unfortunate.”

He further declared, “Frankly, I don’t think it’s something that a former cabinet member should do while the president you served is still in office. That’s not something that I would even consider doing.”

  1. When did the ATTORNEY GENERAL of the US start basing the success of his career on the passing of laws?


    Not to write laws YOU think are meaningful.

    GOD DAMN these people are retarded. The people who hear this and dont do a double take and say “what the fu*k did he just say” are re-tard-ed. Eliminate as you would the cheese burger you ate for supper yesterday.

  2. Holder is just pissed his Fast and Furious scheme didn’t work and he couldn’t take all the guns away from law abiding citizens. He says his greatest accomplishment ….”what we did for the gay and lesbian and transgender community….and blacks of course”. Holder was the worst AG ever.

    Actually, it probably worked exactly the way it was intended (regardless of Holder’s implied intention of tracing the guns back to the Mexican Drug Cartels). Eric either thought he wouldn’t get caught, or that he was above the Law if he DID get caught.

    How deliciously ironic it shall be if karma pays Eric Holder a fast and furious visit from the barrel of one of those guns.

  4. CORRECTION, Holder, look in the mirror…that is your biggest Failure…

    The statement on Newtown, confirms that it was staged event.

  5. Eric Holder’s biggest failure? Allowing a criminal President to piss all over our Bill of Rights and Constitution! He apparently doesn’t give a shit about the oath he swore when he accepted the job. Next time bitch, read the job description so you know what your responsibilities are!!!!!

    1. Oh he knows what they are,, he refused to carry out his job, his orders etc.. and therefore should be serving a life sentence

      Eric Holder knows EXACTLY what he has done to this country and her people.. and we should be ready at every opportunity to let him know his pay back date is coming , lets just not drag it out for much longer
