Awesome: Eric Holder to Stay On as AG Until He Can Bury Fast & Furious, or One Year, Whichever Is Shorter

That's how I read this.

I don't think Obama wants the nominee to have to make a series of promises about disclosure on Fast & Furious.

11 This administration committed acts of war against a neighboring allied country in times of peace by deliberately delivering weapons to narco-terrorists in that country in violation of our own, their, and international law, at least contributing to the deaths of hundreds in their country and the loss of at least two of our law enforcement officers.

And all but a handful of our press either cooperated or looked the other way.

MFM delenda est. Throw the bums out.

Mourn.

I am going to assume you are bullshitting because any attempt to lay the FandF failures (coverage, investigation, prosecution) at the feet of Romney is just asinine.

As long as the judiciary puffs remember to ask about F&F, sitting on Petraeus info, suing Arizona, and being a dick.

Great theater!

30 well, it would've helped if the GOP picked up enough Senate seats to depose Reid. But alas, somehow every swing state GOP senate candidate and a few red state GOP senate candidates lost.

But 2014 will be different because um we really will want it more. Not enough to prevent or detect voter fraud mind you.

39 Here's a fun fact about Coupe Deval: His father was jazz saxophonist Laurdine "Pat" Patrick of the Sun Ra Arkestra. Great horn player and not so good of a father who abandoned young Deval, not unlike what the JEF went through.

Barack Obama blunders again on the world stage

SMARTEST PRESIDENT EVA!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Evilpens at November 19, 2012 07:08 PM (ck76k)

45 Morons: Listen up! Here's the play: Holder stays on, then resigns when F&F investigation heats up. This gives the impression that he's falling on his sword for it, and Obama gets to a new acolyte to be his AG for the rest of his term.

The hubris of Obama is so evident in this comparison: Holder's Justice Department arms Mexican drug gangs and is complicit in the killings of Mexican citizens and a U.S. Border Agent. Yet, Obama called on Alberto Gonzales to resign for President Bush exercising his legal authority to fire some U.S. attorneys who serve at the leisure of the president....and Gonzales did.
