Holder Balks on Second Term

http://wonkwire.com/2012/11/09/holder-balks-on-second-term/


Attorney General Eric Holder tiptoed around the question of whether he wants to continue to lead the Department of Justice in President Obama’s second term, according to the Blog of Legal Times, saying he ”will have to think about—can I contribute in a second term?”
Holder said he will “really ask myself the question about, ’Do I think that there are things that I still want to do. Do I have gas left in the tank?’ It’s been an interesting and tough four years. I just really don’t know. I don’t know at this point.”



Thoughts on Holder?

1. Balk, Holder, balk! Balk all the way to the exit door!

And Obama, get in an AG who will quit busting MMJ dispensaries, and go after this country's real crooks!

2. There are things I really want him to do

 

like LEAVE.

He's been a lousy AG for a Democratic administration. Almost as bad as Janet "yes, Mr. Freeh, let's investigate every insane charge they can make up about Democrats" Reno was.

Prissy pants, going after medical marijuana and letting off the giga-crooks.

9. Yeah

 

We need someone which is not scared of the GOP. Issa and Rick Scott would be my number one targets to investigate. Scott for Civil Rights violations and Issa for abuse of investigated powers. He has wasted too much taxpayers money with his witch hunts of President Obama's Administration. He is a former crook anyway.

11. There is so much more you could investigate Issa for

besides what you mentioned. The man is nothing more than a criminal and has committed fraud IMHO during the CA recall of Gov. Grey Davis.

10. I think Holder should go ....

He doesn't seem to have the intestinal fortitude it takes to put the smackdown on, well, anybody, it seems. Very disappointed in him. Not one banker - not one - has gone to jail. There's something wrong with that.

12. We need a Bobby Kennedy. Who would fill his shoes by having the

stones to go after the criminal elements in our government in spite of the fact it could put him/her in danger

13. "Can I contribute to the second term?"

WTF did you contribute to the first term other than busting medical marijuana suppliers? Useless POS! Time to put in someone with a mean streak, and experience at going after white collar crime. Paging Eliot Spitzer...
