Of course Holder and the White House couldn't foresee the political consequences. Hubris is a funny thing.

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.

The African communist and his regime are disappointed only with Holder’s inability to lie effectively.

It's not good for him when Obama is trying to set up the final line of defense in the suburbs of Berlin at the top of the DOJ.

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.

Absolutely not.
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.
Case closed.

This bunch of "leaks" through their New York Times is all part of the game.

“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.

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.

No.

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.

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.

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.

The leader of the pack is not zero its valjar,she decides who lives who dies who stays who goes.Hard to tell what will happen here.Once again its always a mistake to ignore what goes on in the background.--AMNESTY.

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.

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.

President Barack Obama’s advisers are frustrated with Holder’s inability to foresee problems arising from his approval of a subpoena naming a Fox News reporter as a coconspirator in an espionage investigation.

I doubt Holder came up with that without passing by his boss first.

Obama's advisers are trying to insulate Obama from this.

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.

Yes. Holder has too much on Zero for Zero to request his resignation, so the only way out is for "White Hut subordinates" to "leak to the press" about "people in the WH" wanting Holder to resign.

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.
