Marco Rubio calls for Eric Holder to resign (what changed his mind???)
daily caller ^ | 6/21 | pappas

Posted on 06/21/2012 8:42:52 AM PDT by RummyChick

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio told The Daily Caller on Thursday that it’s time for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign over the Fast and Furious scandal.

During a breakfast for reporters organized by The Christian Science Monitor on Thursday, Rubio responded “yes” when asked if he agrees with presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the five other U.S. Senators who have called for Holder’s resignation.

“I think we’re at the point of no return,” Rubio said

from yesterday’s daily caller
“Rubio hasn’t outright called for Holder’s resignation, and his spokesperson won’t answer whether he’ll join presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, five U.S. senators and 129 House members demanding Holder’s ouster”

Resign HELL!
Holder should go to jail, and take the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF with him.

Let's remember where, when, and who started all of this.

“Other senators have called on Holder to resign, including South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, Texas Sen. John Cornyn, Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson and Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe”

So where does McLame stand on the issue???

Rubio realizes that if he wants a shot at the VP slot he has to stop waffling around and make a stand. (His immigration posturing is doing him no favors, BTW)

He’s essentially puffing out his chest saying; “Look at me! I can be a tough guy!”

What changed his mind?

What changes most RINO minds?

A change in wind direction and/or intensity.

A congressional censure means NOTHING. A contempt citation means nothing. Eric Holder's resignation means nothing, he will just be replaced by another. that's just as bad. It's the (R) senators who voted to confirm min that should be on the hot seat right now.

(maybe I shouldn't say "nothing" since his retreat might help defeat Obama in November)

LOL! Here in the Wash DC area it’s very hot but I didn’t know it was so windy on Capitol Hill.

My sarcastic post on that thread is only a few hours old when reality overtook it.

“I have tried to be very patient and judicious and responsible in my statements up to this point, and to give the administration and Eric Holder the benefit of the doubt,” Rubio said in an appearance on conservative radio host Laura Ingraham’s program.

redacted text restored;

Rubio continued, “My focus has been and remains the far more importante issue of getting the Dream Act and amnesty passed. While procedurally clumsy the President’s edict the other day is a giant step to doing the right thing”

“It wouldn’t be prudent to ask for AG Holder’s resignation at this time. Let’s wait until we know which way the wind is blowing”

Venceramos! Adios, and good night! ?

See my post #8. McLame is the biggest RINO and, therefore, among the last to notice a change in wind direction and/or intensity. Right now in his mind, it is still racist and uncivil to question the emperor's choice. After all, don't you know he is the highest law enforcement officer in the land?

I've never understood the logic behind calling for a person's resignation from a post.

If incompetent or more, the person should be removed and not allowed an opportunity to just walk away.

Calling for a resignation seems to be the lazy approach.

Actually, if you read the White House Insider, the replacement may be worse if it is Tony West.

That tale involves Feinstein, Kuwata, and the raiding of her war chest.

A little off topic, but since Obama claimed executive privilege, he is acknowledging that he was involved in Fast & Furious. I think the Republicans should emphasize that Obama sent thousands of weapons across the border resulting in the deaths of many (100+?) Mexican citizens.

I want to think that in view of Romney's behavior toward Newt, he will do just that.

He’s standing in his usual position with his head up his a$$! Come on Utah, off McLame’s buddy Hatch! Be better than Arizona and recognize this turd for what he is, an old man who no longer knows what time it is!

Rubio (meaning “blond” in Spanish) is a spoiled babbling Latin brat. In a Latin household, his nickname would be “Mi Rey” meaning “My King”…(Si, Mi Rey. No, Mi Rey).

Mi Rey seems to have never held a real job in his royal life.

When he comes on TV, I turn him off as I do the Kenyan bastard and Romney (and many others). I’m fair and balanced.

I swear it sometimes changes words after we hit the post button, then again it could just be Alzheimer's.
