He was responding to Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) who asked Holder if he would consider serving a second term as attorney general if Obama is reelected.

“I stuck by my guns,” Holder continued. “I’ve been criticized a lot for the positions that I’ve taken. I’ve lost some. I’ve won more than I’ve lost. I’m proud of the work that I’ve done.

You’re a crook Eric and you must resign and face prosecution. Your rantings are pathetic and delusional.

Would that it were true.

If he's stuck by his guns, he'd be in Mexico now.

This SOB is an accessory to the murder of Border Patrolman Brian Terry. I'd bet he's real proud of that.

‘Holder: “I’ve stuck by my guns.”’

One of the more hilarious lines ever dropped in a dead-pan delivery.

You absolutely cannot make thuis stuff up. He was apparently dead serious as he uttered the words, not realizing the irony of the situation. His guns, his way, and totally unapologetic for the consequences. After all, there is an agenda to keep, and that is sacred above all.

Another reason I wish we could have settled for a true conservative instead of RINO Romney. We need a real president to purge the DOJ of it’s left wing tripe.

And prosecute the crap out of Holder.

Romney won’t do spit.

Hollder also said “I want to make it very clear that I am offering – I myself – to sit down with the Speaker, the chairman, with you, whoever, to try and work our way through this in an attempt to avoid a constitutional crisis, and come up with ways, creative ways, in which to make this material available. But I’ve got to have a willing partner. I’ve extended my hand, and I’m waiting to hear back,”

What the hec does he mean by avoid a constitutional crisis.

These people are like the untouchables

“I stuck by my guns,”

And by that, he means he's remained friendly with the leaders of the Mexican drug cartels that he helped arm.

But he was tracking them to find out who ended up getting them, and whom they killed...

What the heck does he mean by avoiding a constitutional crisis?

Stedman may have just tipped his hand that F'n'F goes right to the White Crib as part of the entire anti-gun agenda. The whole 'guns going to Mexico' thing was supposed to be a mechanism to show the American public that we needed more restrictive gun laws. It back-fired, misfired, and stovepiped when an agent tragically died.

Eric’s guns are actually boomarangs.

Only a few.

Mostly they are carried by the undercover FBI agents (on one 'side') and the undercover ATF agents (on the 'other side') and the undercover DEA agents (on 'another side') because the real gang members get better weapons from other countries.

Too bad those Border Patrol agents got caught in a firefight between undercover government agents from different agencies. Wrong place, wrong time.

Hopefully, Romney will learn from the big mistake BushII made.

You perjured yourself. You'll be found in contempt and impeached.

Where's the constitutional crisis?

Actually Gunwalker—and Eric Holders refusal to work with
Congress is NO joke. The fact that Congress— the Senate—is
doing like it did when Clinton LIED to Congress about sex—
with an Intern named Monica -When Clinton LIED under Oath and the Senate protected that spud. Now the Senate is doing the
same with Eric the Black Panther Red. Political protection is not a joke it is a flat out national disgrace.

Sticking to his guns is like clinging to his guns. Hmms. Obama doesn’t like people who cling to their guns.

And their religion.

Now we need to ask Holder if he clings to his religion, if any.

“I’m proud of the work that I’ve done.”


Well at least he’s not into venture capital or private equity.

Prosecuting an Attorney General is a serious matter but it’s no Constitutional crisis. It’s just due process. Unless your boss is involved in it, Eric.

“Where’s the constitutional crisis?”

You know, I’ve been wondering about that also. I don’t see one.

Sounds like an admission of guilt to me! Let’s see if Jon Stewart, Steven Colbert or any of our other cultural icons can find anything funny at all to say about this.

To them a constitutional crisis is a dimrat being prosecuted for breaking the law.

Holder’s #1 directive: Protect the party.

Protecting the USA comes somewhere way down the line, if they get time for it.

Holder: "I've stuck by my guns."

Holder holds the people of America in contempt. I don't believe this was a joke or a slip of the tongue. I think it was pure scorn.
