Obama Gives Holder A Spanking For "Nation of Cowards" Gaffe... Three Weeks Too Late

Barack Obama gave Attorney General Eric Holder a mild spanking yesterday in an interview with the Times.

Last month, Holder called America a "nation of cowards" when dicussing race in our country.

But one question? Why did it take almost 3 weeks to rebuke Mr. Holder?

And what's this crap about "if I had been advising my attorney general"? Isn't that The President's freaking job to supervise his Cabinet?

Is Obama just letting these fools run amok while he's off "saving the world" with The Radical American Communist Experiment (R.A.C.E.)?

This would have been nice to hear... I don't know... maybe the day after Holder's gaffe?

Seriously, who's running this place!?

The New York Times reports:

WASHINGTON — President Obama has chided his attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., for describing America as a “nation of cowards” when discussing race, wading into a tumult that flared over Mr. Holder’s indictment of the way this country talks about ethnicity.

“I think it’s fair to say that if I had been advising my attorney general, we would have used different language,” Mr. Obama said in a mild rebuke from America’s first black president to its first black attorney general.

Mr. Obama was asked whether he agreed with Mr. Holder. He hesitated for five seconds before responding.

“I’m not somebody who believes that constantly talking about race somehow solves racial tensions,” Mr. Obama said. “I think what solves racial tensions is fixing the economy, putting people to work, making sure that people have health care, ensuring that every kid is learning out there. I think if we do that, then we’ll probably have more fruitful conversations.”

I don't understand that last statement, but then again, I don't really understand anything Obama says these days.

And he hesitated for five seconds and that's the best he could come up with?

Yo! Bama! The question was about race and you answered with a BS economic talking point?

Was the teleprompter broken?
