In fact, at some point, I expect him to still. I expect him to not only stay in office, but start working these intimidation tactics right out in public.
I seriously expect him to simply say it outright: "Hey, AP, if you want to NOT be destroyed by the government, YOU WILL DO AS WE SAY! ... and I DARE anyone to try and stop me!!!!"
Eric Holder is as hard to dislodge as a leech or a woodtick, and much more of a blood-sucker than either of those other two lower forms of life.
Intimidation is just part of Holder’s character, or rather, lack of such. Doubling-down is just a reflex action. Nothing short of physical restraint and incarceration is likely to deter his behavior in the least.
Shame and decency are meaningless concepts, so far as either concerns Eric Holder.
No he’s recusing from the AP leak scandal not the IRS scandal. An earlier thread was wrong.
This is what will happen during the next few days. As the pressure grows for Holder to resign, a 'journalist' will say something like this:
"Some people are saying there is a racial element at play here, that President Obama and Attorney General Holder are being singled out for criticism because of their race."
They never explain who the "some people" are because there aren't any. They make up the charge out of the whole cloth and then run with it.
Poor Jay Carney - he can't flash a Race Card. Maybe he can come out as Bi-Sexual or something.
