Al-Qaeda offered him a more prestigious role in their organization, so he’s on the fence.

The wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round...

Could be he doesn't want to be thrown under it.

I hear Mooch is also considering whether to stay on for another 4 years.

I'm betting the perks and taxpayer funded vacation sway her into staying on.

One might hope that he might be thinking it might be safer to move off shore.

And in other news, Bill Ayers prepares for a new position in Washington DC. Rumors, unconfirmed at present, indicate Mr Ayers has been asked to serve as Attorney General. The appointment will be made during the next Senate recess. //sarc//

His whole bunch will be clinging to their guns and religion.

Anyone have a list of who they think will flee?

Valerie Jarrett - NO
Hilary Clinton - yes (Colin Powell her replacement)
Timmy Geitner - yes
Eric Holder - NO

I wish he would offer Harry Reid a cabinet post!!!!!

He should “retire” to a cell at Leavenworth, Kansas.

Holder: “Here is my signed resignation, Barry.”

Obama: “And, here is your signed pardon, Eric.”

Deciding if he thinks the Republicans have the guts to go after Fast & Furious and if they do, would leaving be enough to derail the effort.

If he stays on, would he not have to be re-confirmed? If so I would like to see if any Repubs would go after him.

He can’t afford to leave office without getting a blanket pardon. Which should be easy enough, all things considered.

Jarrett will never leave.

Hillary won’t leave until Libya is cleaned up; otherwise she goes under the bus.

Sounds like he is gonna be thrown under the bus so that Obama can pose as “moving towards the center” before putting the bipartisan arm on Boehner to raise taxes.

He can find an equally effective race baiter who is not as much of a lighting rod, I’m sure.

Ya think Wee Willie Clinton was positioning himself for just such a position?

That would be a great slap in the face.

Bill Clinton on Supreme Court OR Attorney General.

In Zer0s mind, probably Holder needs to free himself up, so that when Ginsburg croaks, Holder will be set for life on SCOTUS.

It is about time for Jamie Gorelec to resurface to expand her WALL and more completely obscure the people’s view of this admin.

Don’t buy anything anyone on the Left has to say period. They are messing with you. This is one of the biggest MOs they use.
