No comparison between Holder and Gonzales

April 19, 2014

Re "Holder plays the race card," Opinion, April 15

According to Jonah Goldberg, Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. is guilty of playing the race card because he supposedly inferred that race was behind his ill treatment by a House committee.

The divisiveness in Washington that Holder referred to has nothing to do with race.

Goldberg then compliments former Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales for nobly declining to play the race card when he came under fire from Democrats. Gonzales had no cards to play at all, drawing fire from Republicans and Democrats alike for his ineptitude.

It's absurd to compare Gonzales' incompetence to Holder's job performance.
