What a sad speech made by the new Attorney General, Eric Holder, deliberately crafted to include the phrase saying that, as Americans, when it comes to race, we are “essentially a nation of cowards.”
No, I’m not joking. He really said this. Look for the video.
This was a formal address, not a gaffe occuring during a series of off-hand remarks over too many beers.
Electing Barack Obama, gutless?
Condoleeza Rice as our Secretary of State, spineless?
But retaining Mr. Holder as our nation’s Attorney General?
Truly pusillanimous. Not to mention a national disgrace.
