How Long Till Obama Throws Eric Holder Under The Bus?
cjonline.com ^ | 19 June, 2012 | Kevin_McGinty

Posted on 06/20/2012 6:15:15 AM PDT by marktwain

Come on, we all know it's coming.

I mean seriously, is there anyone out there who believes Holder's telling the truth regarding what he knew and when he knew it in his Fast and Furious fiasco?

Silly me. Of course you left-wingers believe him. And even if you don't you'd never admit to it.

Nothing I can do about that anyway so there's really no point in trying to convince you otherwise.

My question today is simple.

Do you believe Eric Holder will keep his job? Or does his boss, President Obama throw him under the bus just like he's done every time one of his former close friends or supporters have become a political liability?

I say he'll be gone within 30 days or less. Maybe a lot less...

The media will play the race card over and over.

“Do you believe Eric Holder will keep his job? Or does his boss, President Obama throw him under the bus just like he’s done every time one of his former close friends or supporters have become a political liability? “

Yes.

He knows where all the bodies are buried AND he’s protecting Obama but not releasing files that show his boss was intimately involved with this action. Right now, they are giving those files the same scrubbing they gave Obama’s birth record from Hawaii and will be probably released once they have been “sanitized”.

The arrogance, corruption, and duplicity of this administration is unsurpassed in American political history.

Holder may be the guy with his finger in the Obama scandal dyke, so I hope Obama is forced to cut him loose. Can Obama find another criminal as slick and loyal as Holder?

Holder’s going somewhere, alright. He’s going to the Supreme Court, in an Obama second term.

Supreme Court Justice Eric Holder.

holder and baraq are codependant.
One can’t exist politically without the other.

He stays.
IF this thing ever gains traction, there will be some lower level people who are thrown to the lions, but holder will not go anywhere.

I suspect you are right. If Holder goes I think it will be a sign the Rats are in the process of dumping Obama, too.

It will never happen. Holder is one of the top dem political fixers. Remember, he was the guy behind the Marc Rich pardon under Clinton, and he may have also been behind the pardons of the Puerto Rican terrorists as well.

If Obama wins the election, Holder will be going nowhere. If Obama loses, expect a full pardon before Romney is sworn in.

The author is living in a fantasy world,

Holder WONT procecute himself and the Dems will continue to call this part of Republican’s organized effort to attack Obama to make him look bad, started in early 2009.

Republicans will side with Issa, Dems with Holder, and those in the middle voters won’t know what to believe.

Obama cannot throw Holder under the bus without giving him a Presidential Pardon first.

Holder knows where Fast and Furious came from. We all know where it came from, but I would bet that Holder can prove it.

If Holder goes down without a pardon ,Obama goes down.

If and win Obama throws Holder under the bus, it will be AFTER the White House is on fire and most people (both the innocent and the guilty) have been burned!

I am talking about, waving from the plane good-bye (ala Nixon), time frame!

Eric Holder is Obama's version of Luca Brasi. Obama will stick by him no matter what - he's one person that Obama can't afford to throw under the bus.

The sad part is, most Americans have no idea what "Fast and Furious" is all about, and why this is a major scandal. If the Republicans turn up the heat, Obama and Holder will simply play the race card. The Republicans will react in the usual manner: "We're sorry...we didn't mean it!....please, please, please, please, please don't call us racists!"

Fast & Furious goes to the WH & the Oval Office. Holder’s stonewalling is to keep the documents that will prove it under wraps until after the election. He’s not going anywhere. Any President brazen enough to do all the lawless, unconstitutional things Obama has already done will have no problem keeping Holder around, especially when his political life may depend on it.

the end game has arrived. either...

fubo will circle the wagons (meaning holder has dirt on him)..

or a bus tossing will occur rather quickly ( I would guess we will have our answer by the end of the week )..

Either way, napolitano and clinton are next...

Breaking News says that Holder just asked for "Executive Privilege" protection concerning the documents that Rep. Issa has been seeking!

If Obama grants this, LAST MINUTE REQUEST, then we will know that Obama is circling the wagon and this goes ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE! If Obama denies this request, then you can hear the diesel engine warming in the background!

Agreed, Obozo won’t throw Holder under the bus because the bus will drag Obozo down the street if he does.

Holder has the goods on the “WON”.

It is clear that the direction for Fast & Furious came from the White Hut.

“Inter-Agency Coordination”

This is also why Holder will not release the documents Issa requested. Issa know who directed from whistle blowers, but does not have enough proof to prosecute, yet.

I think Issa’s got’em in a box. I thought “the one” didn't know anything about F@F? If he didn't know anything about it then how can executive privilege be invoked.

Or, did Holder lie about it not going any higher than mid level Justice Dept officials?

This may be just what Issa was hoping for.

Naw. The Repubs aren't that smart....

Maybe not. They are very good at lying to themselves and others. While they have lost enormous amounts of credibility, the question is:

Is it enough, and has the new media gained enough influence, that they can no longer provide sufficient cover for leftists and threats to conservatives, to maintain the "progressive" movement?

I agree. It is unfortunately far more likely that it is the truth that will be thrown under the bus when the Republican leadership caves in its quest to uncover the truth. In situations such as this the Democrats act like pitbulls. The Republicans act like Basset hounds. Meanwhile, the Woodward and Bernsteins of today's MSM will be working overtime to maintain the cover-up.

Me too also on Holder not being thrown under the bus. Main reason being, not only does Holder know where the bodies are buried, but he probably helped bury them .

Holder knows too much dirt. If anything Holder will have an “Accident”(Given by the WH).... My guess is Obama’s people will stage a Gabby Giffords redux and leave a trail for the media to whip up Race Riots and blame Tea Party/Gun owners.

Probably 15- 20 years ago, the American Spectator had a caricature of Ron Brown on the cover with this headline: “Why Ron Brown Won’t Go Down.”

Right after that his plane crashed in Bosnia.

This reminds me of that.
