    in Holder’s world, the lady is racist as she’s white! He was awful, almost as bad as b. hussein.

    Is Lady Justice getting paid off at 300 times the rate of the average worker in her ‘corporation?’ Is that what you’re saying, Jerry?

    You got to think through these little Limbaugh Metaphors you parrot, Jerry. Some of ’em sink like lead balloons.

    He says he’ll stay until his successor is confirmed. He’s not going anywhere. This is just a ploy to delay his impeachment.

    Seeing how long the Republicans drag their feet confirming any of Obama’s nominations, I think you’re right that Holder isn’t going anywhere for quite a while. BTW, Republicans insist impeachment is off the table regardless how much the Tea Party wants it.

    Prey tell, how will this stave off the impeachment of Holder? If the republicans want him gone then all they have to do is quickly approve his replacement. Not any replacement, I’m not saying they should approve Satan or anything like that, but a qualified candidate should be approved quickly if they truly want Holder gone. If they don’t it will prove that all they are after is perceived political gain and NOT what is best for this country. What am I talking about, for a generation or more the republicans have not cared one bit about this country. It’s been self, party, campaign buyers, contributors, contractors,certain foreign interests, friends, neighbors, and at the bottom of the list finally, country.

    After the Savings and Loans fiasco there were over 1,500 indictments and over 1,000 convictions and the S & L crisis was nowhere near as bad as 2008. How many indictments have we seen from 2008 by this corrupt justice department. If anybody thinks Obama is any better than “the shrub” Bush then they’re out of their mind.

    Unlike many of our previous attorneys general, Holder has never been accused of anything illegal for which there is any evidence. He did a great job on civil rights, and a lousy job on prosecuting the crooked bankers who crashed the economy and stole from the middle-class. He did a pretty good job of blocking the worst new Jim Crow voter laws from the supreme court and state Republicans, and a lousy job by prosecuting journalists and whistle blowers. Yet the right tends to focus on completely fake scandals like Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the IRS; for none of which is there any actual evidence that there was even a scandal, much less that Eric Holder was involved.

    I agree, ARodney. Mr. Holder has been a two sided coin with much credit and equally much disappointment in his performance. He has at least avoided being arrested for his mistakes as have some previous AGs. The fact that he isn’t THEIR appointee is sufficient for the conservatives to attack him on things that, in the long run, don’t really matter or were not his creations.
    Good comment, sir.
    Sincerely,
    C.

    Yup what we need are Republican AG’s like John Swallow and Mark Shurleff of Utah. www.nytimes.com/2014/07/16/us/politics/two-former-attorney-general-in-utah-are-charged-with-corruption.html?_r=0

    Trying to argue that Holder is qualified for the John Mitchell Award? Good luck with that.

    She’s just still hungover after the celebration of Ashcroft and Gonalez’ departures.


    Shhh, don’t remind the conservatives, but he also said back off on the idiotically costly, and ineffective, pot prosecutions for minor non-violent “criminals”.

    Uh oh. So the Republicans have to somehow decide which is the lesser of two hates- do they hate Holder enough to rapidly get another candidate to Obama, or do they hate Obama enough to make him wait on a candidate?

    I’d get in a bunker if I lived in DC; there may be a chain explosion of angry old white men’s heads.

    “I’d get in a bunker if I lived in DC; there may be a chain explosion of angry old white men’s heads.”
    In a morbid kind of way that would be an interesting sight to see. It also would be a dastardly thing to do, to watch that is. I would hope that no one would find glee in it. But in the end, it would be of their own making, all that hatred and all, if their heads did explode.

    The Savings & Loan crisis was George H.W. Bush (41) – NOT W(43)…your comparison has NO relevance, as the current economic troubles were precipitated (as YOU state – 2008) under W and handed over to Obama in free-fall. I will agree that the oligarchs have not paid or seemingly even been pursued for their criminal acts – political contributions and ‘too big to fail’ seem to trump ‘justice & compensation’ for some abuses.
