Democrats are firing back at Republicans over their partisan witch hunt targeting Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama. Congressmen Peter Welch and Gerry Connolly join Ed to talk about it. Watch it.
My son was a homicide victim; and whats odd to these parents are allowing tthe GOP to disrespect their son by using him as a political charade; the GOP only cares about supressing the vote, and NRA, that has been the main discussions; the Terry's kid name has only been mentioned maybe twice, or 3 times, as a parent of a murdered child I would be mad as hell to have my son used like this.

Daryl Issa is a very partisan clown. Always talking about how "corrupt" this Administration is, etc. He was the guy who initiated the recall of Governor Davis here in California and, for some reason, decided that he couldn't run for governor broke down and cried on television. I think it had something to do with his past legal problems with the law regarding borrowing cars and having guns. I guess the old saying: "Takes one to know one," is true!

I never thought that any gov't rep. let alone a whole party, would stoop to such despicable means to purposely, and downright dishonestly impugn the character and actions of another as in the case of Holder who has in this case, in AZ, been doing his job in good faith. It turns my stomach to see what evil the GOP party represents, and the stupidity and hate that is abundant in its members who are being led to believe and bring out their worst instincts.

Fargo and others, I've said it before many times and I'll say it again regarding the use of money for witch hunts.
Total Dollars spent on investigation on Bill Clinton by Kenneth Starr $50 million.
Total Dollars spent on investigation of crimes of 9/11. $11 million.

I agree with the fact that the dems have been sitting around and getting the butts kick by a bunch of racist and idiots. Were are there? I know each time I see them on the news they are almost talking in whispers. Speak up we need to hear you and if you like Senator Sanders go to his web page and sign up the the buzz I did and I even post comments on it and I live in Calif.

How much in tax dollars is this political stunt costing all of us? Is the Witch Hunt paid for?
The birther Sheriff is back in the news for wasting tax dollars by sending a Deputy to Hawaii to get a copy of Pres Obama's birth certificate........racking up overtime dollars

Exactly. Bernie Sanders, an independent and Alan Grayson who was voted out in 2010 have been the most vocal.
Virtual silence from the rest. I too am pissed off and tired of not hearing from these Dems. My solution? Vote them out! They don't get my vote just because they have a D after their name.

Typical republican criminal tactics. This guy should be drawn and quartered. Monkey Bush does the program and they hang it on Mr Obama. Pathetic......... I feel for our country with this kind of crap going on.

I am sick of the double standard here. I am sorry for the border agent who was an unfortunate victim of this ridiculous scheme and I am sorry for his family.
But anyone remember Patrick Tillman? Remember THOSE Congressional hearings in which military officer after officer got up before Congress and flat out LIED about the circumstances surrounding Tillman's death? Including McCrystal. Did they get held in contempt? Did they lose their jobs or get demoted? The Army coroner released the autopsy report on Tillman which proved there was no way he was killed by "friendly fire". Not only did they lie to the Congress, the country, and his family, they used his death as a sideshow to gain support for the illegal wars.
I believe McCrystal was promoted in the recent past. No one held accountable. The truth never told.
How dare they start this witch hunt now.

Democrats fire back? With what - a squirt gun? Democratic Senators and Congressmen have been sitting on their hands on the bench for the last 3 1/2 years. That's the problem. Schumer et al have been letting Bernie Sanders, an independent, carry the load of defending their President and Democratic principles - if they remember what their principles are. The House is worse as they have been letting the tea baggers push them around with the indefensible hate of our government and not a peep from any Democrat. Come on team - this crybaby felon carjacking firebug got his butt kicked for trying to fulfill his Senate and CA governor aspirations despite being the richest congressman at $450M. All that money and all he could manage to buy is a congressional seat from the district that just elected a birther tea bagger for district judge. Common Democrats - charge! BTW- to all the fools that bought Issa's car alarm system thinking it would protect their stupid car. I bet people who would normally not even think about stealing a car considered stealing the car that started yelling at them - 'get back, whoop, whoop" or started honking the horn at 3am when a squirrel ran across the hood, and drive in into the nearest lake or take a sledge hammer to it.
