Holder to Stay for Another Year

by Keith Koffler on November 19, 2012, 7:24 pm

Attorney General Eric Holder will stay on as Attorney General for about a year, according to Fox News.

Holder remains even though he is embroiled in several controversies, including the “Fast and Furious” gun running operation and his decision not to tell the White House about evidence the FBI had uncovered that former CIA Director David Petraeus was having an affair.

If you were mortified by the DOJ when they had an election looming, just think of what they will do with a lame duck president who now REALLY doesn’t give a crap what you think of the “transforming of America” to look like Chicago.

Spot on… and scarry true.

It doesn’t feel like he’s “embroiled” in anything….

Sadie November 19, 2012 at 9:39 pm

More like ‘empowered’ for another year.

Whew! What a load off my mind….(reaching for the tequila bottle)

Don’t bogart that bottle, RickW. Pass it around to your cyber friends. It’s going to take some pretty strong firewater to make it through the gauntlet of the commies.

Gauntlet of the commies. Nice description of most of MrO’s cabinet members.

OT: Now that SenRubio looks like he might be running for something important four years from now, the trashing begins:

From HuffPo: (their words)
“Sen. Marco Rubio refused to answer a reporter’s question by using the excuse that he wasn’t ‘qualified’ to address a certain subject.”
The question from a GQ reporter: how old is the earth.

Eric “Rat Snake” Holder for another year? Motive? Protect the head asp!

Rat snake is rather complimentary for this treasonous racist.
Barney Fife is better equipped to run the DOJ. Better yet, how about Goober?

Why a year? Could it have something to do with the mid-term elections? What are they plotting now? Holder needs to be kicked to the curb yesterday.

Actually, having Holder stay at least another year may work to the conservatives advantage. As long as the House keeps pushing for answers on F&F, and now Petraeus, Holder will not be able say he’s no longer involved in the government and does not have answers.

The use of executive privilege once already by Obama to protect his pal will probably continue as the House looks into other DOJ/WH actions, and may force a show down between the House and the WH, much like Watergate did with Nixon. Holder staying could be a definite plus for pushing against the O Team. Like I’ve said before, the next few years are going to be a wild ride.

He appears to have a Teflon coating.

Gayle Putt May 29, 2013 at 8:15 pm

He needs a coating of tar and feathers.
