Posted on 06/02/2013 2:11:14 PM PDT by ImJustAnotherOkie
Presidential aides are privately admitting to a growing frustration inside the White House with Attorney General Eric Holders political ineptness in the press leak investigations and are hoping the embattled appointee will resign from office, The New York Times reports.
The White House is apoplectic about him, and has been for a long time, said an anonymous Democrat source, identified only as a former government employee who acknowledged the White House staffers in question are his friends.
President Barack Obamas advisers are frustrated with Holders inability to foresee problems arising from his approval of a subpoena naming a Fox News reporter as a coconspirator in an espionage investigation. Now Congress is looking at whether Holder lied under oath when he testified last month that he knew nothing about the incident.

It’ll take more than holder resigning to take the stink Out of this administration.
Yes, Mr. pResident. His political ineptness is the problem.
Not his corruption and abuse of power, or yours.
Are we seeing a ray of sunshine?
We are witnessing the 4th term of the Clintinoids and the most corrupt administration ever.
The African communist and his regime are disappointed only with Holder’s inability to lie effectively.
I believes it when I sees it.
How do you like being on the underside of the bus, Holder? You corrupt criminal should be wearing an orange jumpsuit in the darkest hole of a prison for all the atrocities committed under the Clinton/Obama regimes.
Kind of like folks who obtain pit bulls then act surprised and dismayed when they act like pit bulls - especially after spending so much time siccing them on folks...
This pack of Ubama liars and their press know full well that all the African communist has to do is call in Holder and tell him to resign.
This bunch of "leaks" through their New York Times is all part of the game.
I call BS. If “the White House” wanted Holder to resign, Holder would resign.
“Former gov. Employee”? Sounds like Nero doesn’t have the balls to fire him so he gets Rham to “leak” this to their prestitutes at the slimes.
Break out the popcorn.
My wish is the Holder sends back a very public message that reads ‘push it Barry and I do a document dump on fast and furious and benghazi on Monday.’
Watch the two tear each other apart.
Yup. Kabuki theater.
zero's gonn'a have t'have a serious plum for holder to walk away.
Obama is just upset that Eric got caught!
The old dem line of BS as if these department heads are out there on their own. They do the president’s bidding and serve at his pleasure.
I’ve said all along that Obama’s white house is full of ideologues who are there whether he wants them or not and he may not be able to force them out without bringing himself down with them.
If Holder leaves, he will be replaced with another just like him.
The leader is the only one that matters.
“...hoping the embattled appointee will resign from office, The New York Times reports.
The White House is apoplectic about him, and has been for a long time,
“The White House”? The building wants Holder to resign?
Or does Obama want Holder just to go away, without the requirement for Obama to make a command decision and FIRE the man. Is Obama that wishy-washy? Or is he afraid of setting a precedent by firing the first black attorney general?
If he does, will Holder spill the beans?
Is Holder scheduled to take a group of Chamber of Commerce types or Bar Association members on a flight to the Dubrovnik airport?
let’s see if I have this correct:
in-justist dept - totally politically and for rats
IRS - totally political and for rats
EPA - totally political and for rats
FEC - totally political and for rats
FCC - totally political and for rats
State - totally political and for rats
Homeland in-security - totally political and for rats
Commerce, Education, HHS - totally political and for rats
There is nothing that this government does that is for the people anymore. Nothing it does that is apolitical. It is corrupt and longer able to be made uncorrupt. It is time for a divorce, and freedom loving people should re-form a new constitutional representative government, strengthened from what we have learned from this failure of an experiment.
Once Holder is gone (as will his deputy) there be a new sheriff in town...the bodies might start being discovered around the White House.
If the White House truly wanted Holder to resign, then Obama would simply ask for his letter of resignation. If that letter of resignation were not forthcoming, then Obama could simply fire Holder. Really, it’s that simple.
Obama’s #1 concern is Obama. How will Holder resigning make him look, etc. Everything is political, 2 years of campaigning followed by 8 years of campaigning, vacations, and golf.
BO needs to be impeached and then all the cockroaches that he has on staff will go down the drain with him. Time to clean out.
I think the only thing holding the white house together is criminal complicity.
Its kind of like the mob, make sure everybody is involved in the crime so nobody talks.
Can Obama resign first, PLEASE..it would take a few months to get the stench of failure and Commie out of the White House though
The “WH” wants Holder to resign? If only there was someone with the authority to make Holder resign or fire him.
maybe all that construction at the WH was a catacomb for all of O’s loyal legions. ya never know. ;-]
There are two White House camps, the two women(Bitchelle and the Vagrant Valerie) then there is the other camp.
The two women camp win’s 90% of the battles because the Zero is a mamma’s boy.
If val/jar can wheel and deal her way into giving up holder in exchange for our(the House) votes on amnesty she will probably do it.
Remember its all always political. They never do anything unless it is politically advantageous.
What does that mean—the White House???? We all know that Obama doesn’t know anything about anything, so how could he even know that Holder has perjured himself before Congress or that he targeted a journalist who was reporting sensitive information that Obama might not have known? It’s all so confusing.
Hogwash. All it takes is The One to tell him he is through.
"We are bringing Dookhan-quality testing to the entire USA'!!!!!"
You can pass go do collect $200,you got it....
I’d be stunned if he resigned, unless after talking to Obama’s lawyers, he realized he’d have a hit put out on him if he didn’t resign.
Obama is all about Obama, but without Holder, he wouldn’t have gotten anywhere near as far as he has gotten now. Holder is the enforcement arm and I don’t know who else Bambi could get for that job.
A BS story leaked to the NYT for consumption by LIV’s
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Yes, get the scumbag to resign. Claim victory. Then press for more. Anyone within the administration and the circle of corruption needs to be labeled as “Holder’s people”. Attack, attack, attack.
Of course, Deval Patrick has one qualification that King Obongo sees as essential...
This article is a trial balloon.
The pressure will be on, Zero can tell Holder he really would like it if he stayed, but his resignation would be best for Zero's ascension to "God of the World" after he's done with the US.
Buildings are very powerful in DC. Remember when Nuland said “her building’s leadership” wasn’t happy with the story on Benghazi? So “buildings” now have leadership.?
Maybe the architecture in DC is getting out of control.
There is NO way that Holder will ever be on the SCOTUS. Before this he was a shoe in.
Val/ jar is but one of the heads of the serpent.
The serpent’s name is 0.
He goes, she goes.
