BALTIMORE (CBSDC) Attorney General Eric Holder might not be sticking around for a second term.
Holder told law school students at the University of Baltimore School of Law that he does not know if he will stay in his job.
Thats something that Im in the process now of trying to determine, Holder said. I have to think about, can I contribute in a second term?
Holder says he needs to sit down with his family and President Obama to see if he wants to continue on the job.
[I have to] really ask myself the question about, do I think there are things that I still want to do? Do I have gas left in the tank? Its been an interesting and tough four years, so I really just dont know, Holder told students.
Holder has been under fire from congressional Republicans for what he knew about the botched Fast and Furious operation where the U.S. allowed guns to be sold illegally in hopes to track Mexican drug cartels. Holder was found in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents regarding the operation. President Obama has invoked executive privilege.
Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was reportedly killed with one of the guns used in the ATF operation.
Terrys December 2010 death lifted the veil on the bungled federal governments gun-smuggling investigation that was later the subject of congressional probes.
Federal authorities have faced heavy criticism for allowing suspected straw gun buyers to walk away from shops with weapons, rather than arrest the suspects and seize the guns there.
Two rifles bought by a gun-smuggling ring that was being monitored through Fast and Furious were found at the scene. But authorities have declined to say whether the murder weapon in Terrys death was linked to a purchase

Beat me to it. He can’t get out of MA. fast enough.
“This sh!t’s gettin’ too real, dawg, I’m outta here before the trials starts!”
What's the statute of limitation for National criminal abuse of power under color of authority?
(That would be abuse of Constitutional powers and laws for purely political purposes, and selective prosecution in violation of several items in the Bill of Rights.)
I am assuming his precedents will not stand. We just need some House members with the morals, ethics and intestinal fortitude to initiate a process.
Holder isn’t going anywhere, unless Obama wants to replace him with an even more radical member of his inner circle.
Several names come to mind.
Valerie Jarret, his pupeteer.
Van Jones, the rabid Communist.
The Nation of Islam doofus.
The Leader of the New Black Panthers...
... wait. He's dead. Never mind.
I suggest THIS GUY as his replacement!!!
Who cares? That moron fascist will be replaced by another moron fascist.
He belongs in jail.
Holder: [burp] Oh sorry. pardon me.
Obama: Only if you resign first.
Maybe John F’N Kerry will join the exodus.
Who will take their places, I wonder?
Are there any more repulsive Kennedys lurking around to step into the breach?
Took him three times to pass the bar. A perfect TOTUS choice for U.S. Atty General.
Most of the cabinet changes after the reelection of any President. They are just finishing a grueling 4 years of 20 hour days and intense stress and pressure. They deserve to go back to some semblence of normal.
In Holder’s case, I would also add that there is a distinct possibility, given what we have seen with the Fast and Furious cover-up, that there is something so bad buried there that even some Senate Dems would vote for removal after impeachment should it come out.
“Here comes Deval Patrick.”
Yep, and we’ll probably be sending the “senior” senator John (I was in Vietnam, ya know) Kerry to replace the Hildebeast as Sec State.
It gets more bizarre. Fauxcahantas Lizzie Warren (D-Moscow) will then become the senior senator from the People’s Republic and will gleefuly assume Ted Kennedy’s (D-Hell) acclaimed title as the Liar of the Senate.
I could go on but I’m feeling ill again...
Soon to be president of the new black panthers. OB will present him a black beret when he leaves in shame (retires to spend more time with the family).
Now that Congress is onto him he can't kill any more citizens or Mexicans with his illegal gun trafficking so what's the fun in staying on. He'd be stuck doing really boring stuff.
Like obeying the law.
Doesn’t matter if Holder is gone or not. Valerie will just select another Communist muslim-loving, white-hating brother to take his place.
You could be right. It is going to be interesting this next 4 years because EVERY president has problems the second term. Obama will not be immuned.
I won’t be staying on. Decided to spend more time away from my family, possibly in a different country until the heat is off.
Off to enjoy the same paycheck he gets now with no headaches. Stupid effin government. No wonder were broke.
