    Ok, If you are saying that we have an entire year, and that is a long time to sustain such low approval in this Presidents case, then I would agree....But, if we get to this time next year, and Obama is still struggling with scandal, after scandal, and continuing to lie, and get caught doing so, I think that the mid terms could be disastrous for demo's.

    I hope that you are right, but I don't have much faith in the voting populace of this country anymore to make good choices, based on what is best for the sustainability of our country.

    The FBI also is an Executive agency if I'm not mistaken.

    The House Republicans could formally find him in contempt of Congress. In fact, it did and even a few Democrats joined in.

    House votes to hold Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress | Fox News

    This should have trigger the Justice Department taking the matter to a grand jury, basically for Holder to present Congress' contempt finding to a grand jury.

    However, Holder apparently decided he is also the president and granted himself an executive pardon and immunity from prosecution.

    Really, to be accurate, we should refer to him as "Supreme President and Ruler Eric Holder."

    Olson will be called racist, and a southern nigger-hater. They'll probably claim he's with the KKK.

    You are clueless as to what playing the race card is.

    Either way.....this will be more pressure on Obama. Letting him get it from all sides. Keep up the pressure and just don't go after Holder half assed. Bring it to him.....Holder is weak mentally. Lets not forget he almost bailed on Obama once before.

    Because if it was the purview of the DoJ, you'd end up with the executive branch prosecuting itself rather than Congress having a check on the activities of the executive branch.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
