One can hope . . . but I kind of hope it is more of a “bring it on! Whitey!”

Too bad. That’s the only thing that I would be interested in hearing from this jerk (Of course that applies to his boss as well).

More lies. Holder is a pathetic doofus and a mirror reflection of his hapless lo-IQ boss

I’m going with a resignation that he will say will be effective months from now, and attempt to not follow-through with.

Issa will have to keep the pressure on this guy right through to the cuff and stuff.

He's too egotistical to do that. He is more likely to go on a shooting rampage against everyone else!

If he has any decency he will announce that he is stepping down as Attorney General and stepping in to a Fedearal prison.

More likely he will do something that moves us towards a constitutional crisis.

Step down and step in. Step down and step in.

Fox reporting it will be about another terrorist plot. Take the heat off F&F. Baloney.

Where is the RICOH investigation?

Don’t we have “Racketeering” under the cloak of government authority here?

It was obviously a “conspiracy” to commit a crime - which has already resulted in hundreds (at least) of murders.

Why is HOLE-Duh not indited for being an accessory to murder?

Why should he not be appropriately prosecuted? Is he above the Law?

Oh; wait; I forgot; ... we’re not under rule of law any more are we? We are now under the rule of Rulers.

Never mind, then....

The topic is not fast and furious, but he is to announce a “serious plot to attack the US.”

Fox just said he is going to talk about a foiled terrorist plot. He’s going to try to show us how much we need him.

He has no decency.

Either he is going to try to obfuscate further, or he's going after his enemies.

Announcing an investigation of Darrell Issa? Looking into alleged racism on the part of the Tea Party? Looking into racism on the part of those opposed to illegal immigration?

Wasn't the whole Fast and Furious operation set up as a way to attack the Second Amendment? When do they proceed to that stage? Or has the current controversy over Holder's lying to Congress forced them to put that off indefinitely?

Regardless of if Holder resigns or not - if whoever the Repub candidate turns out to be doesn’t use the fact that the Obama administration (and those he wanted in his administration) is likely one of the most corrupt in this nation’s history - from the huge wave of tax cheats, to the pedophiles, homes, thieves, and others who have disgraced their positions (or were so jacked up that even Dems in the Senate didn’t want them to begin with)...

One is known by the company he/she keeps. Obama’s best friends, from the “Reverend” Wright and Ayers, to the slew of garbage he has chosen to surround himself with...

This will give Obama the excuse to attack Iran, start another war and ask not to be thrown out of office because he is a war-time President.

It has something to do about Terrorist threats to Embassy's.I think the Saudi and the Israeli..

Sounds like a distraction so the Holders mess is put to rest or held off..

My husband says it looks like the presser is about uncovering a terrorist plot against the US. I’m thinking Holder is holding a “wag the dog” press conference, or a Wizard of Oz press conference. In other words - a fast and furious diversion from Fast and Furious.

I sound so cynical.

Not at all. Did you know that `Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain’ was first penned by Thomas Paine?

The nation’s top law enforcement office is accused of being a liar, so what does he do? He tells us of something alarming but just a little hard to swallow.
Classic non sequiter game strategy: We are faced with indisputable corruption in the executive brance so, like Bullwinkle the moose they pull terrorist plots of of their hat, or statements that do not follow logically from what preceded it: government corruption.

You nailed it;)

He’s now mumbling and stumbling about. Barely understands the prepared notes he is reading. Probably had no input in the operation.

Taking credit and deflecting heat.

Mueller looks like a worn old agent..

He never did much to go after corruption in California, why should anyone think he would go after anyone today domestically.. smoke meet mirrors.

When do they do a news conference like this for a busted plot? They happen all the time. Just trying to slow idiot Holder in a good light and take the heat off F&F, IMHO.

It ain’t goin’ away, Holder. Just go ahead and resign.

No frikkin way. Are they going to say that because of F&F we were able to break up a major terrorist plot?

This entire story sounds fishy to me. Why announce this now?

Holder is scared to death that the true purpose of the Fast & Furious will be revealed.

GUN CONTROL. Obama Style.

And now congressman Chaka Fattah out saying how great Holder is. You know its embarrassing we have a government that thinks so little of our intelligence that they think we can’t see when something is being done for a reason.
Next we will hear that Holder had to disavow F&F due to this ongoing investigation. Astounding.
