Holder, Cabinet Members To Be Replaced

Holder, Cabinet Members To Be Replaced

Attorney General Eric Holder could decline a second term at the Department of Justice, despite the re-election of President Barack Obama.

According to Reuters, Holder was speaking to law students at the University of Baltimore and said he still must speak with Obama and with his own family and ask himself, “Do I have some gas left in the tank?”

The AG’s remarks were not part of the speech, according to prepared remarks for the event on the Department of Justice website.

While it is not uncommon for the Attorney General to leave office after four years, Holder may have extra incentive to step down after a number of scandals, including Fast and Furious, the failed gun-running program that led to Congressional inquiry.

Reports indicate that Holder isn’t the only member of Obama’s first-term cabinet that may be replaced. Hillary Clinton and Tim Geithner have both publicly announced their exits. Leon Panetta, Eric Holder, Ray LaHood, Steven Chu, Ken Salazaar and Lisa Jackson are all also rumored to be leaving Obama’s Administration.

    His gas has stunk over the past four years, so his leaving would not hurt my feelings as he has totally done nothing within the Constitution since he arrived. He also is not out of the fire on the Fast and Furious…the investigation is still ongoing and since he was in it up to his butt, he may be another bailing the sinking ship….because the ship will sink…it is just a matter of time.

    • eddie47d

      Apparently Wanda missed the part about “its not unusual for Attorney Generals to step down after four years”. It may or may not happen and its also not unusual for administration officials to step down under any President, Republican and Democrat alike. Oh yes if the Obama administration is sinking how did they win the election? Bush had a sinking ship and took the economy with it and Obama stabilized the economy. Yes the economy still sucks but how about a little good news from you and less name calling at least once in awhile. .

        eddie….your ignorance is so unbelievable I find it hard to think you are even alive. How do you feed yourself with the mix up you seem to be living with. You seem to be inder the impression your head belongs in underwear. You will get what you deserve and sadly so will the rest of us…..get what YOU deserve that is.

      • eddie47d

        …and what was so brilliant about your comment?

      • Benjamin Fox

        eddie, teddy when you stop your commie lie’s others will follow suit but, since all you have is a weak mind and robot complex, it comes your way.

      • eddie47d

        Still being ignorant Benjamin? Sorry I can’t help you with that!

      • Christian

        Omg…he said Obama stabilized economy…?!?! Wow… my ears bleed from that but ok… more like he added more welfare recipients and took em off job search. Just sayin…

  • roger

    the very moment he resigns, he should be locked up.

    • eddie47d

      Okay lets make a deal: you get Holder and try and prosecute him and I get Cheney and try and prosecute him.

      • Dave

        Okay, it’s a deal.

  • OneGuess

    Yup. Rats leaving a sinking ship.

    • GRAMPA

      Sinking? Stinking!!!


    The cost of gas is going up. his could get quite costly.
    God bless America.

  • Guy Waukcinebar

    Great. Now Obama can appoint one of the New Black Panthers as AG.

    • Elda

      Oh NO….It is going to be BIG SIS!

  • Bunny

    Holder is waiting for his appointment to the Surpreme Court

  • tlgeer

    ” including Fast and Furious, the failed gun-running program that led to Congressional inquiry.”

    Even Issa admitted that neither the White House or the DOJ had anything to do with Fast and Furious.

    As for Hillary Clinton, she said 4 years ago that she would not serve more than that. So, why bring her up?

  • Elda

    He is a coward and he needs to be arrested for crimes against the country. He thinks if he takes himself off the radar we will forget what he has done to cause so much pain for the families of the dead border guards and all those Mexican families that lost loved ones because of this lying POS. I don’t care who his boss is…..they are both criminals!

    • eddie47d

      Attorney Generals are seldom loved and they bashed Ashcroft when he served for the Republicans. Wouldn’t bother me if Holder goes yet is everyone in government a criminal?

  • Elda

    It sickens me to feel this way, but I believe Obama and those he has appointed have so weakened our country that there will be an attack on Washington DC by someone he professes to support in the middle east and I am glad Romney will not be there to take the hit. This is totally Obama’s game now!




  • Jan

    that would be one saving grace.

  • George Vieto

    The burden is on Obama now that he has been sent back to Washington. The fun will begin this time when he has to face the big challenges from aboard and domestic. Get the popcorn ready and let us him fall down from grace.

  • Jack Worthington

    Holdler is a liar and a criminal. He has concealed the truth and needs to be sentenced to that isalnd in the Pacific way of the trade routes and told never ever to return to civilization. We can send him MRE’s left over from Afghanistan and Iraq once a month for sustenance.

  • mike112769

    Holder should already be in prison.

  • Shel Baker

    Holder was FIRED from previous Administrations – needs to be in prison now with his Black Panther friends. The most obvious of Racists in this crew of cowards.
