'It could have been a PR disaster for the president': Eric Holder cancels police academy graduation speech as lawmaker planned protest demanding impeachment

US attorney general was to address police academy graduates in Oklahoma City on Thursday

The speech was canceled at the last minute, but the DOJ hasn't said whether planned protests had anything to do with the decision

A state legislator there had planned to publicly call for Holder's impeachment at the ceremony

A DOJ official says Holder doesn't fear protesters, but is conscious of his image as the nation's top law enforcer during his last months in office

Calling for his impeachment? We should be calling for his arrest.

With a mod-squad fro he ook over an ROTC building with an armed compatriot, calling for it to be turned into a diversity center —the man has actualy been remarkably honest about the criminal he is, RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING.

His firm SPECIALIZED in defending widely acknowledged terrorists.

The only people this man fooled are those who WANTED to be fooled.

What a coincidence. Holder pulls out. Moochell pulls out. And the President is 10,000 miles away where he cannot be questioned on it.

Nice try, "DOJ official" but it is obvious that Eric "The Red" Holder is a coward who cut and ran.
We are a nation with a cowardly Attorney General.
If Holder actually cared a whit about his "image" he wouldn't cultivate being dishonest, ignorant, and a mental light weight commie racist.
Alternatively talking like a street punk, buddy, and then a whiny big baby, Holder is a disgrace and embarrassment.

Holder in Oklahoma, Moochelle in Kansas, Reid’s BLM in Texas. These folks need to stay out of our part of the world.

Coincidence?

How can there be a PR disaster when the press kisses dem butt?

Obama and Holder could be using three year olds for target practice and the New York Times wouldn’t notice. Useless drama.

There should be large protests when every Cabinet member speaks. They should be very afraid of the demonstration.

Law enforcement, courts, and jurors have put a multitude of hours of work to put these 200,000+ criminals behind bars for violating the law. Obama and Holder are going to let them loose on the American population to create more havoc.

Why, because it wasn’t fair that they are in prison.

This whole episode is BS and I will wait for the day just one of this mess of scum cause death or injury to any innocent American.
