Krauthammer’s Take

by NRO Staff

From Fox’s Special Report with Bret Baier, Dec. 23.

On Attorney General Holder saying that those who go after the president and him do so, at least in part, because “we’re both African-American.”

It’s clearly a cheap shot of an attorney general who is in political trouble. The reason he is [in trouble is because] he is one of the most incompetent attorneys general in U.S. history. He is the guy who brought on gratuitously the fiasco of the KSM trial in New York that even the Democrats rebelled against. He has led a department that has been either totally ignorant or disingenuous or worse on the Fast and the Furious scandal. And now he plays the race card.

I think it’s — to use his word — a cowardly use of the race card.

And it’s unbecoming.

It also is dangerous in a country where it can stoke… racial animosity.
