Skip to comments.End of the week: Fox’s O’Reilly thinks Holder will have to resign(gunwalker)
Posted on 10/15/2011 5:41:44 AM PDT by marktwain
It has been a tough week for Attorney General Eric Holder, despite an attempted defense by Democrat spinmeister Lanny Davis, and it was wrapping up Friday morning with Fox News Bill OReilly predicting Holder will have to resign, and Sen. Charles Grassley saying he will ask for the resignation of whomever signed off on Operation Fast and Furious.
I think hes going to have to resign.Bill OReilly
For an administration that came into office in 2009 promising to be the most transparent in history, the Obama administration is suddenly drowning in scandals. Not only is there Fast and Furious, but there is also Solyndra a controversy that has nothing to do with firearms or gun rights, but everything to do with how this administration has evidently been conducting its affairs.
This column will focus on Fast and Furious, because this could be the career killer, not only for Holder, but for several career bureaucrats at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Advertisement
OReillys remarks came during a segment of the morning show Fox and Friends. He appeared just days after an exchange on his own program with former prosecutors Lis Wiehl and Kimberly Guilfoyle, both of whom also thought Holder is essentially toast. This column discussed that.
For his part, Davis writing in The Hill is attempting to spin the Fast and Furious probe as nothing more than crass partisanship, and he wants it to end. Of course he does, as do all Democrat Obama loyalists, because they recognize this as an anchor that could drag down their president in 2012.

BOR sure does have a mind like a steel trap doesn’t he? /sarc
wtf cares wot 0’pinhead ?thinks......
He needs to resign for sheer incompetence since his Boss admitted he knew about Gunwalker in March..and Holder didnt’ know???? Yeah right.
I think that’s all part of Issa’s plan. He knows he has Holder caught, and he’s still working on nailing the boy king from Kenya.
I sense a bit of wishful thinking here. There is no way these guys ever resign. Their office is the source of their power. And they would happily provoke a constitutional crisis and/or revolution rather than leave office. And even that would be after YEARS of stringing out the legal process.
Holder is the bar no the front door. If Issa can make him fall, the others will turn to CYA mode knowing they’re next. Once they begin eating their own, then the investigation will be producing results.
Holder is the bar on the front door. If Issa can make him fall, the others will turn to CYA mode knowing they’re next. Once they begin eating their own, then the investigation will be producing results.
Allowing Holder to merely resign is a slap to the faces of the American people generally, and particularly the families of those killed by the firearms at the center of this politically sanctioned criminal enterprise.
Holder and all his minions with a hand in this debacle must be held accountable. And the accountability should extend to White House, if the trail leads there, as well.
Who will be the first to knock on Issa’s door and ask for amnesty in return for their testimony?
KNOCK-KNOCK: Who's there?
Answer - ISSA
O Aide - Oh, Ok Is sa gonna answer but first can we talk
'Fox Friends' discussing same with Mike Huckabee. Be interesting to see what eventually unfolds. Obama is not just 'friends' with Holder; they are as "thick as thieves". A special relationship, indeed.
To be honest, I watch BOR as much as I watch/listen to Ubama. Not at all.
They are both a waste of time and energy.
This story on a ‘slow crawl’. A perfect ‘gotcha’ that only deepens the swamp that surrounds Obama,Inc.
If you care what Bill O’Reilly thinks, well....
And if you don’t, ignore this ping.
That’s not enough.
I want him prosecuted, found guilty, disbarred, fined into penury, sent to the hard-time federal pen, turned into a house mouse for a gang of skinheads and fed nothing but mayonaise sandwiches on Wonder Bread.
The Boy King from Kenya is more aptly described as the Wannabe Dictator who decides who lives and who dies with the aid and support of Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the human waste in the US Congress and in this Regime.
I can’t stand the bloviator. But I am interested in F&F so I’ll not ignore the thread :)
That is fine, of course....but do I hear the sound of a 'steel trap' closing?
Could we also get BOR to retire also?
TED: (on the air) In order for the bill to be passed, it has to be ratified by two-thirds of the forty-eight states.... (looks off camera, sees a crewman holding up two fingers) Oh, two more, huh? Correction, that's four-thirds!
“I sense a bit of wishful thinking here. There is no way these guys ever resign. “
I agree. Chances are maybe 1 in 50.
I get enough after action reports to know that both of them are so full of crap that their eyes are brown.
Resign? Bull Cookies!
This man and his accomplices need to be prosecuted and go to jail! Every one, all the way down...and up the ladder!
Were BOR turn up missing, I would not join the Search Party to go find him.
“I think hes going to have to resign.Bill OReilly” We should be so lucky. These people have incredible (and distasteful) chutzpah (sp?).
(Think much of O'Reilly hype is an honest Blarney; whereas that color/substance you mention, IS Obama's core value.)
That said, am not discounting O'Reilly's often noxious or boorish behavior. Do think, as well; he is not as well served by his staff as he imagines. Am not an O'Reilly regular; but appreciate his viewer draw and target topics - and the fact, that Libs land on 'Fox' to watch him.)
You can watch BOR so I don’t have to. :)
I remember at the first Tea Party protests, I heard that Lanny Davis was pushing for the car tags of attendees to be photographed.
You're right - his resignation can't be the end. The American people have the right to know the truth...
