Posted on 01/10/2013 6:45:04 AM PST by Olog-hai
Attorney General Eric Holder, a lightning rod of criticism from Republicans, is staying on in his job as President Barack Obama starts his second term.
A White House official said on Wednesday that Holder is among the Cabinet members who will remain in their position. He has been working on Vice President Joe Bidens task force on finding ways to reduce gun violence after last month's mass killing in Newtown, Connecticut.
It is rare for an attorney general to serve more than four years.

I STRONGLY believe that Holder should serve more time. Perhaps 10 to 20 years in prison.
Of course he’s staying on at Justice - the New Black Panther Party already has a chairman.
I caught one segment of The Daily Show last night. Stewart was busily skewering dirty dealings of HSBC and AIG. Stewart also took time to mention that no one was going to jail over the dirty deals, including laundering funds for terrorists and drug dealers.
Not a single mention of who is president, and why it’s up to his administration to pursue this. Not a peep.
We’re finished as a nation, it’s no longer an issue wondering IF we’ll fall, it’s only when, and how hard.
he has to be re-confirmed...maybe the pubbies can grow a set this time....
Obama simply could not find anyone more corrupt - Holder is irreplaceable.
Another, “in your face” move by the tyrant in the White House.
The Republicans in Congress are just more of the same Mafia Marxists. They are there to pretend there is choice.
Eric Holder's crime under Obama’s direction may make him liable for a few hundred counts of accessory to murder, But that is worth only 10-30 years in prison. His crime of trying to overthrow the Constitution by the Fast and Furious Gun running is High Treason, and is punishable as death by hanging.
A lot of the thugs riding high in Government today, laughing as the circumvent the Courts and Justice forget that there is a God, and He is not laughing with them.
His punishment does not stop when the rope draws short. There will be Justice for the Justice Department in the end.
Consider not giving thousands of guns to violent Mexican drug cartels.
He’s the one that engineered Sandy Hook.
The stench in the ZerO cabinet gets stronger.
Just wait, I hear that Christine Gregoire, former governor of WA, is being considered for head of the EPA.
Gregoire earned her Obama creds by supporting sub-bituminous coal terminals in WA State, against the wishes of her friends and supporters in WA, saying that she was under tremendous pressure from the Obama administration.
These sub-bituminous coal terminals will be another government money pit, requiring constant government subsidies because the sub-bituminous coal only sells for $12.35/ton, and that’s a good price. You cannot build terminals and docks to ship a commodity that only sells for $12.35/ton (and trending down), let alone make upgrades to the railroads that will carry the coal (Warren Buffet’s BNSF), but that is Obama’s plan and Gregoire has been facilitating it, no matter the negative environmental impacts to WA State.
of course the POS is staying on...what happened to fast and furious...the biggest terd always wants to end up in the biggest sh*thouse where he can be with all his terd friends...he is just waiting on his “supreme” sh*thouse appointment...to be followed soon...otherwise i can’t tell you just how i feel!
The administration can’t afford not to let him continue as AG.
Of course...he’ll stay on until nobama gives him his pardon. Just watch.
Thumbing their noses at us or staying close for mutual support in the continuing cover ups?
He is drunk with power.
Eric Holder is very necessary to this administration. Holder is the one who covers up Obama’s & his minions’ messes, wrong doings and criminal acts by hiding the evidence, looking elsewhere and stonewalling records requests. He is loyal and well paid for his dirty works.
you are right...either an appointment to supreme court of a pardon for all his other high flaunting sh*t
If Holder doesn’t stay for the full second term, his replacement will be just as bad.
Just wait, it is rumored that Obama is about to appoint the former governor of WA state to head the EPA. There could not be more politically mired candidate for the office, it would be impossible.
While earning the strong backing of the WA State environmentalists, she has come out in support of Obama’s new sub-bituminous coal ports and terminals, saying that she was just under so much pressure from the Obama administration, that she had to do it. (that’s what she told the Sierra club). The truth about the coal ports and terminals is that new ports cannot be built without government money, yours and mine, because sub-bituminous coal only sells for $12.35 / ton and costs more to ship than it is worth. A new coal port will be like another Solyndra or Shepherds Flat wind farm, but Gregoire is behind it all the way, even if it is an environmental disaster for her home state.
