This one is sure to outrage Barack Obama's liberal supporters.

The Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee Sen. Arlen Specter (R.-Pa.) compared Obama's Attorney General Appointee Eric Holder to President Bush's much-loathed Alberto "I don't know" Gonzales today on the Senate floor.

Specter pretty much said Holder was a blind, yes-man loyalist to President Clinton like Gonzales was to Bush.

SPECTER:After our recent experience with Attorney General Gonzales, it is imperative that the Attorney General undertake and effectuate that responsibility of independence.  Mr. Gonzales left office accused of politicizing the Justice Department, failing to restrain Executive overreaching, and being less than forthcoming with Congress … I am convinced that many of Attorney General Gonzales’ missteps were caused by his eagerness to please the White House. Similarly, when Mr. Holder was serving as DAG to President Clinton, some of his actions raised concerns about his ability to maintain his independence from the president.

Ouch.
