Representative Allen West (R-FL) has joined the rapidly growing group of Republicans in Congress calling upon Attorney General Eric Holder to resign over his role in the incredible “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal. West made a strong statement at a GOP press conference yesterday, indicating he has even more than Fast and Furious on his mind:
Based on what we’ve learned so far, Holder’s continued presence as Attorney General is simply absurd… and there is still much more to learn. It is a mark of shame against the Democrat Party that they haven’t joined in the call for Holder’s resignation. Then again, they don’t have anyone who understands the relationship between leadership and responsibility like Allen West.
It’s enough to make you nostalgic for the Clinton years, when Janet Reno publicly took responsibility for her bloody disasters. She didn’t actually do anything about it, mind you, but at least she said the words. That’s apparently more than we can expect out of Eric “Didn’t Get the Memo” Holder.
