Breaking: Senator Orrin Hatch demands Eric Holder’s Resignation Over Fast and Furious
A Time For Choosing ^ | June 13, 2012 | Gary P. Jackson

From the Daily Caller:

Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch has joined his congressional colleagues in demanding Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation in the wake of Operation Fast and Furious.

Hatch made the call during a Wednesday interview on former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s radio show. “Well if he doesn’t cooperate with the Congress on this Fast and Furious, where one of our agents was killed because of the stupidity of this administration, then he ought to step own,” Hatch said.

“He’s basically a nice man, but by gosh he’s been so partisan in that job that I’m very concerned about him and tend to support Sen. Cornyn and others who think that he ought to retire.”

Huckabee said he calls Holder by the nickname “Eric withholder” because “he seems to be withholding so much more information than he’s coming forth with.”

Hatch becomes the fourth U.S. senator to demand Holder’s resignation over the scandal. Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn demanded Holder’s resignation to the attorney general’s face during a Tuesday Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Republican Sens. Jim DeMint, Johnny Isakson and James Inhofe did so beforehand.

Two sitting governors — Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Rick Perry of Texas — join those senators, as do 129 House members and presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in pushing for Holder to step down.

Say what you will about Senator Hatch, but he is right and pointing out that it was the stupidity of the Obama regime that got all of these hundreds of people killed.

“He’s basically a nice man,

Why is it that Republicans think they need to throw that in, when it's obvious it's not true. If it was true, why demand the resignation?

Obama is an evil, underhanded, pathological liar, and so is everyone around him, including Holder.

Orrin Hatch can’t seem to criticize anyone without issuing a goofy, exculpating qualification. This guy Holder is a demon, every bit as evil as his Punk boss.

While Sen Hatch is running for reelection he is a great TEA Party conservative. After the election he reverts to full-on RINO.

As C.S. Lewis wrote, “The greatest evil is not done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint...it is conceived and...moved, seconded, carried, and minuted...in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices.”

LOL!

Hatch must be senile and looking to be bitch slapped by the domestic communists top lawyer.

Another useless fight without resolution staged by the Washingtonians to create the illusion that they are "doing something" in exchange for their huge pensions and perks.

Are there ANY real men anymore? What's with all this pussyfooting girly sweet talk????

"“He’s basically a nice man, but by gosh he’s been so partisan in that job that I’m very concerned about him and tend to support Sen. Cornyn and others who think that he ought to retire," Hatch said. "

"Nice man" = A-HOLE
"by gosh" = G-DAMNIT
"so partisan" = BIASED & INCOMPETENT
"very concerned" = OUTRAGED!
"tend to support" = AGREE
"others who think" = I THINK
"ought" = MUST
"retire" = RESIGN!!!

The governors of the states should get into the act by directing all state law enforcement agencies to stop all cooperation with the Fed law enforcement agencies until Eric the Red marxist dog steps down.

Hatch is saying this now, because he’s seen the high aces that Issa is about to turn over on the table. He’s jumping in with the winning hand, now that he’s seen the cards.

If by "winning hand" it's meant that Holder will be forced to resign, that's not a winning hand.His resignation before the election would be too damaging to the Usurper. And his hubris is overweening. He may resign after Obama is re-elected, if that horror comes to pass.

Hatch voted to approve the Holder weasel when the Holder weasel was nominated by Obama to be the AG.

Thanks Hatch. You’re a bit late to the party.

This is pretty big..it means that it’s about to hit the fan because Hatch is jumping on the bandwagon.

Feinstein would surely have a problem with Tony West as the replacement ... he of Taliban Johnny fame and the brother-in- law of Kamala Harris

Holder resigns and F&F goes away. What does Hatch want to remain covered up beyond Holders crime? Answer; The president's involvement in F&F which would cause the entire fraud of this administration to unravel to include the obozo's two Supreme Court justices.
