Eric Holder to Stay as Attorney General
Townhall.com ^ | November 13, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

Attorney General Eric Holder apparently has enough " gas left in the tank

." He's staying in his position as the head of the Department of Justice for Obama's second term.

President Obama is holding on to Eric Holder as the nation’s top law-enforcement official, The Post has learned.

The newly re-elected president asked his controversial attorney general to stay for the second term, and Holder has agreed despite enduring a firestorm of criticism from Republican lawmakers.

“I don’t know if everyone in the White House wants him [Holder] to stay, but the important guy does, and that’s all that matters,” said one person briefed on the matter.

Under President Obama, getting hundreds of Mexicans killed in addition to American federal agents, not only doesn't get you fired, but gets you a second gig. Holder staying isn't surprising because after all, Obama needs him to carry out a highly progressive agenda by manipulating the law under the guise of false "justice."

More likely, he needs Holder to keep the lid for the next 4 years..you can’t ever guarantee that the new guy/girl won’t stray of the reservation..because you don’t know how deep the crap is..

Wonder if there’s a Paula Broadwell (or something similar) in Holder’s woodpile?

Makes it so easy to keep the troops in line, apparently.

A fair point, he knows Holder will do his illegal and unethical bidding and he'd be taking a chance with a new AG.

Obama isn’t going to remove someone who has successfully covered up every major scandal of his last four years. Holder has as much on Obama as Obama has on him.

Who knows what else is out there that we will never know about. More importantly what will be coming in the future. Someone has to institute the “revenge” that is coming.

Reward for a job well done

Finally some good news from this administration!

How can you have a communist regime without an Eric Holder?

Turn out the lights. Goodbye America.

This accomplishes two ends for Obama. One is that Holder is there to cover for Obama’s illegalities, and to carry out Obama’s socialist agenda. The other is that Obama gets the immense pleasure of rubbing Republican faces in Holder’s stink for another four years. It’s called sticking it to ya.

Too bad sitting secretaries don’t have to be reconfirmed by the senate — but then I guess that wouldn’t matter with the weak spined republicans that are there.

The Chicago Crime Syndicate (i.e., the obama administration) is on top of their game ... why change anything now? Besides, they are totally confident that the scared-out-of-their-collective-minds, lazy men (a.k.a., the two Republican caucus leaders in the House and Senate) will do anything at all to challenge the Syndicate based on the opposition party leaders' recent pronouncements that they are more interested in "compromise" and in "getting along".

Defending the Constitution and upholding the Rule of Law (or representing their conservative base for that matter) appears no longer to enter into their political calculations.

You're most assuredly right and Holder fits right in with them, anarchists all.
