That’s a really good analogy. The only one worth protecting is zero since he holds all the power in name only. The entire sequence was set up almost flawlessly.

Repubs need to threaten jail to Doug Shulman and Lois Lerner. They gotta sing sooner or later. Or squeeze the balls of those just under them until they rat their bosses out.

Capone went down on a tax charge.... no way these underlings are spotless in their personal lives.

It’s just that the GOP will protect rather than prosecute.

I have thought for some time now that we are dealing with something much, much worse than we may realize.

I don't think there is going to be any easy solution to this, and I hope that I am wrong.

A little more than that....They want to quiet down the crowd. Don't forget, Holder is already in contempt of Congress over Fast and Furious.

Add his actions and his lies, and the guy might just wind up in jail.

Spin as they will, the Dems are getting clobbered.

He's going to leave before someone issues some charges. He'll work a deal just like he did for Bubba...."I'll leave but you can't prosecute me for anything that occurred during my tenure".

Mr. Holder...Sign here......

It may have the unintended consequence of putting blood in the water however.

It would be delightful to see Holder cut loose. He'd be mad as hell at the administration, but more importantly, he'd be vulnerable. A little heat from Issa, an indictment, or lawsuit and he'd strike back the people who put him in his predicament.

It would be ecstasy to watch him burn; it would be even better to watch him turn on his betrayers.

But, Valjar knows this.So does 'bam.

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.

what a line of poop. it implies Obama didn’t know/order/approve of it....what bs

No at first nothing will change, the Zero is not going to appoint some law and order type.

I think Holder’s trump card is he knows an awful lot of secrets. It will take some time for those secrets to bubble up again and the question is will the next AG be as good at ‘Wack A Mole’?

It wouldn’t be victory.

Agreed. The point is to keep the usurpers on the ropes. Obama cannot be impeached and removed. So, the next best thing is to take out his minions and discredit Obama at every turn. Freeze it, personalize it, polarize it.

Holder has his job for as long as he wants it, period. He will go only if it is politically viable for the Regime, and for no other reason.

Holder was talking about quitting before the last election. So what if he walks away now? The Democrats will cry crocodile tears and say the Republicans are mean, but does that hurt him, his bosses or the party? Nope. Letting him walk away condones his awful behavior. That would just give us more Holders. I’m waiting to see if you can commit crime in this country and just walk away. If you can, there won’t be a Democrat with any front teeth left in this country.

I may be naive but I really don't see much jeopardy for irs employees. What do you accuse them of doing? Making life miserable for taxpayers,its what they do. Did they get out of line.Yeah,waaayout. But,they only followed instructions and we will never know who gave the orders especially if a special prosecutor is brought in which looks likely to me. In the end it will be Benghazi all over again We must find out who did this so we can make sure it never happens again(sound familiar):translation no jeopardy here,nothing to worry about.

Holder will resign when Obama finds somebody sleazy enough to participate in his schemes like Holder does. Someone who is corrupt to his eyeballs but can still get confirmed by Congress (no big deal apparently). Someone who can help carry on this regimes criminality.

I only wish I knew just how many we actually have now. all the pieces to this puzzle are interchangeable except for zero,he's the hardest to replace. But its still doable.

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...

Hey Hey pit bulls ares still dogs and as such are noble animals. if raised with love an affection can be wonderful pets, Eric Holder, not so much....

The White House want’s Holder to resign.So what I want Him and the “P”Resident tried and convicted of Treasonous acts against the United Stated.

Everything he’s done proves he’s got very dirty hands.We only need an excellent Prosecutor and one with Guts.

These guys have to leave before they totally destroy this country economically and otherwise.

There's not going to be any impeachment. Politically, it's not going to fly with the American people.

However, it's quite conceivable that a record-setting number of administration members could end up in jail. And Holder is one of them.

Resignation would remove a lot of the heat from Fast & Furious, the AP/John Rosen warrants and the standing Contempt of Congress charge.

Holder needs to stay -- so that the full depth of his corruption and depravity may be plumbed and the total weight of the law and public opinion might propel the little weasel into jail, where he belongs.

I do not want Holder to resign. I want the entire Obama/democrat criminal enterprise take out, legally. I want these traitors to see personal/professional destruction and prison time, at a minimum.

However, realistically, we will have to take whatever we can get.

Joined late here. IMHO the Reps should shut dow everything. They should have done this before appointing Brennan and Hagel. Just gridlock everything. I don’t see any downside. It would force Obama to do something. Would love to see Holder arrested and jailed. He is a sissy little shit that has been involved in every sneaky Dem trick in the last 20 years. Him and Jaime Gorelic. Holder will make $millions if allowed to resign.

It is not. I wish that I could tell you that I have read the Bible, but as an honest man, I cannot say this. I have had problems with religion in my life, despite this I believe in Jesus Christ, I pray to Him, and I believe that he is active in our lives.

I also believe that Satan exists and is also active. I believe these people and the machine they have built are from Hell. I say this in all seriousness, it would not surprise me at all to discover that they are actually Satan worshippers in the literal sense.

I don’t know what the solution is or if there even is one, it may well be that we are at the point that only Jesus can save us.

What to do from here on out is always the big question. Usually we do not play politics well and wind up doing the stupid thing.

Political strategy has never been high on our to do list and hence we have paid and continue to pay a tremendously high price dragging the country down with our failed decisions.
