We Can Expect Justice to be for Sale Under Obama

Imagine that – the Great Hopenchange thinks long and deeply and out of the depths of his all-wise soul comes the new Attorney General…a Clintonite who was dropped the ball in the disgusting last-minute Clinton pardon of tax cheat Marc Rich…who then took his new-found pardoned status and went right on in to Saddam’s Oil for Food scandal:

President-elect Obama has decided to tap Eric Holder as his attorney general, putting the veteran Washington lawyer in place to become the first African-American to head the Justice Department, according to two legal sources close to the presidential transition…

…The only hesitancy about Holder’s selection was that he himself had reservations about going through a confirmation process that was likely to revive questions about his role in signing off on the controversial pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich. Although there is no evidence that Holder actively pushed the pardon, he was criticized for not raising with the White House the strong objections that some Justice Department lawyers and federal prosecutors in New York had to pardoning somebody who had fled the country. But after reviewing the evidence in the case, and checking with staffers on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Obama aides and Holder both decided the issue was highly unlikely to prove an obstacle to his confirmation, one of the sources said–especially given the Democrats’ more sizable post-election majority in the Senate.

A partisan hack as Chief of Staff; an ambulance-chaser as White House Counsel, a crook’s dream as Attorney General…this is the change you liberals were demanding? This is what you wanted?

The incoming Obama Administration just gets worse by the day…
