Skip to comments.Rasmussen survey shows low support for Holder; CCRKBA says he should quit

A new Rasmussen Survey of likely voters released Friday morning suggests far more Americans want Attorney General Eric Holder to quit than want him to stay, and the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms sides with the majority.
About one-third of the respondents remain undecided.
CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb was among the first to call for Holder to step down after the scandal erupted last year over Operation Fast and Furious. First in May 2011 and again in August, Gottlieb said Holder should leave the Justice Department. He renewed that call Friday. Perhaps the Rasmussen survey results will nudge Holder along, though it is doubtful.
Earlier this week, CCRKBA released a blistering promotional message about Holder and Fast and Furious, first reported here. That video urges the public to contact Issa and House Speaker John Boehner about holding Holder accountable.
The survey shows 40 percent of respondents want Holder gone while only 27 percent think he should keep his job. The remaining 33 percent are undecided, but with barely one-fourth of the public supporting him, Holder is not likely to get much sympathy if the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform goes ahead with a planned contempt vote next Wednesday.
Holder is trying to head that off by agreeing to meet with Chairman Darrell Issa on Monday, as this column reported. However, that offer of accommodation came before new revelations about Fast and Furious erupted Friday morning across the internet, courtesy Mike Vanderboegh at Sipsey Street Irregulars. He has an exclusive report linking the Department of Homeland Security to part of the Fast and Furious investigation.

I don’t want him to quit. I want him imprisoned. Racist bastard.

i posted this on snopes and they went offline???—LOL
i think they found his BC
I think that is wishful thinking. From about 1960 until the mid 1994, the MSM would have covered it up completely. The only reason we even know about it is because the new media is gaining effectiveness and the MSM is losing it.
Look at how effectively the MSM was able to cover up Waco. Even with a national spotlight on it, they were able to intimidate congress and prevent a real investigation.
did i do that? he he
I don’t want his resignation, I want a copy of his booking photo.
I not only want him in jail; I want the first words I read Monday morning on FR to be “ articles of impeachment” relative to Odumbo’s shredding of the Constitution. What the hell are Congress waiting for? sd
“At any other time in American history, Holder would have been thrown in jail by now.”
FDR’s top aide was a soviet spy. Never did time. Were Holder a Republican, he would be in jail. But dems have never paid for their indiscretions.
I have no idea whats goin on- strange very strange..i guess ignore my post- i could have swore that snopes varified it under hospital records..what can i say it gone
“I want a copy of his booking photo.”
His neck in a noose would satisfy many...
For THAT, I would want to own the concessions. LOL
