Public Not Buying Story That Holder Contempt Vote About Politics

According to a new CNN Poll, a majority of the public approve of the House of Representive's recent vote holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
According to a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning, 53% of people questioned say they approve of the House vote a week and a half ago to hold the attorney general in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents related to a controversial program called Operation Fast and Furious, with one in three saying they disapprove of the move and 13% unsure.
The public also wants the President to pull back his claim of executive privilege and come clean on the scandal known as Fast and Furious where the ATF allowed guns to walk into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels.
Nearly seven in 10 say the Obama administration should answer all questions, with 27% agreeing with the move to invoke executive privilege.
Holder's retort after the vote that it made for "great political theater" once again shows he has a tin ear.
