Eric Holder and the Proxy Impeachment of Barack Obama

And so what does the average citizen say? They throw up their hands and say: "a pox on both your houses," instead of blaming the Republican culprits. And that ends up a net victory for the special deep-pocket, moneyed interests.

"These folks want a plutocracy where instead of the voice of the many, the checkbooks of the very, very few determine the outcome of the election," Pelosi said. "Again, a plutocracy. And so, what you see is diversion, diversionary tactics. Let's not talk about the transportation bill, which is only 9 days until it expires; student loans, which is only 9 days until the interest rate, the lower interest rate will expire."

"Instead let us tie the hands of the person who is assigned to make sure that the American people have the right to vote, who have the right to vote, are able to vote, and that their vote is counted. It is all tied together," Pelosi explained.

Clever strategy. The president, by proxy, looks bad, while at the same time his enemies are making it harder for him to be re-elected. Don't let anything which might improve the lives of ordinary people get enacted, so the resulting resentment of government will throw the president out of office. That's why I say the attacks on Attorney General Eric Holder are in fact a proxy impeachment of President Obama.

They never give up.
