If valjar appoints a special prosecutor the IRS scandal goes away.Problem is what takes its place? Benghazi,amnesty,other scandals,they don’t want syria any more on the front page than it already is perhaps the scandal they know is better than the scandal they don’t know. They may have figured out how to play us and are worried that the special prosecutor could blow up in about a year, bad timing.

Who would be the replacement? Mike Nifong?

If Obama finally does decide to jettison Holder, he can dust off Nixon's speech of April 30, 1973, announcing the resignation of Haldeman and Ehrlichman, "two of the finest public servants I have been privileged to know" (or something very similar).

If Holder does go, it will be further grist for the MSM theme that opposition to Obama is all about race. Conservatives just want Holder out because he's black, not because he's incompetent, dishonest, racist, and hyperpartisan.

It wouldn’t be victory.

It would be defeating a straw dummy on a castle wall.

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 ...

Shouldn't this read, "Obama's advisors are frustrated withHolder's inability to understand the UNCONSITUTIONALITY OF HIS ACTIONS and his flagrant disregard for the Constitution which he took an oath to uphold."

Why do democrats completely disregard fidelity to the Constitution? They could not care less about truth, the Constitution, or decency. They care only about, (as Anita Dunn said) THE POWER OF PERSUASION.They are truly on par with communists and malevolent dictators.

“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. “

Yeah, sure.

They need to find a way to blame the racist right for the removal of the black man. So Obama will do nothing until that time.

Holder doesn’t just get to walk away. He is the nation’s top law enforcement official. The only way he should get to walk away without prison time is if he gives up Hillary or Jarrett or both.

Forcing Holder to resign will be a terrible psychological blow to him.

He’ll become so despondent he’ll commit suicide—

Does Obama know Holder is still there?

Has anyone told Obama that Hillary left?

That's true but think about impeaching a black potus? What are the odds? Slim,to none? My guess is they will simply buy holder. Pay him to leave. Spend more time with the family.

There are other rumors about zero that indicate he may voluntarily leave early.No, I won't say, no, I can't verify.

I call on Obama to resign. come on Palin,Rush , levin, Hannity , you can too you know.

Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election of 2012 for Obama and democrats/socialists in the Senate.

Obama’s IRS prevented many tea party groups from getting started and also audited individual donors to Romney and to the Republican party. The IRS stole the election. We no longer live in a free country

“Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) said Thursday his constituents have suggested they were audited by the Internal Revenue Service because they donated to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign. ....”

“The White House is apoplectic about him, and has been for a long time,”

Expect Obama to claim soon that he had nothing to do with picking his attorney general. Vallerie Jarrett picked him.
He’ll also remind us that Holder was there under Bush also so his administration is not entirely responsible.

Then we’ll hear the usual nonsense that every effort is being made to get at the bottom of this and justice will be done, yada, yada, yada.

Holder was the hit man for bubba before jarrett,he’s well insulated. Don’t look for anything serious to happen to him. My best guess remains they buy him. Send him to the farm for some R&R.Maybe a year from now he suffers a Breitbart....

There are so many crimes out there that it’s hard to know where to begin, because each one leads to another.

I lived through Nixon, but he was small potatoes compared to Obama.

There is NO way that Holder will ever be on the SCOTUS. Before this he was a shoe in.

Good grief... That is something that never crossed my mind.
Really? Somebody thought that corrupt, repugnant sleazebag Holder could have been nominated to the Supreme Court??

I Don't have any question at all that if valjar wanted she could get rid of anyone, even holder.she is an absolute dictator. But, even she is not that stupid.

Holder can if he wants to play both sides. The Chicago mobsters and the clinton mob. He could make things very interesting. It won't come to that but he could and they know it.

If anything happened to him soon,it would look bad. Look for him to be Breitbarted in about a year.
