O'Reilly: Holder Using Skin Color to Shield His Ineffectiveness

"Holder is using his skin color as a shield to avoid explaining to the American people why he has been so ineffective on a variety of fronts."

On Thursday's "Talking Points Memo," Bill O'Reilly took on Attorney General Eric Holder's flagrant use and abuse of the race card.

O'Reilly played a clip of Holder's Congressional appearance in which he was reminded that he had been held in contempt for his conduct, and then his appearance before Sharpton's group in which he demanded to know, "What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?"

"Holder is using his skin color as a shield to avoid explaining to the American people why he has been so ineffective on a variety of fronts," O'Reilly said.

"Nixon was treated far more harshly by Congress than Obama and Nixon's Attorney General was ruined over the Watergate investigation," he added.

"Holder has been treated gently by the press and has not been subject to much scrutiny by the public... Holder's first duty is to the American people, not his party or the president."

"Holder doesn't update investigations," O'Reilly said. "He withholds documents from Congress and stonewalls time and again."

"That's the truth and it has nothing to do with skin color," he concluded.
