    Holder must take responsibility for his own actions.
    no argument there. few people knew anything about holder prior to the Obamanation

    I did-I was a DOJ attorney hired by Bush I so I know a lot about him

    Clinton made him a US Attorney for DC. he had a good reputation among other US attorney offices then. In 1997 he was elevated to a deputy AG position-once again, he had a good reputation as a straight shooter.

    at the end of the clinton administration, he got caught in the mess of clinton's pardon of Marc Rich

    He served briefly as acting AG under Bush-again no issues

    in private practice during the Bush administration, he was at prestigious law firm Covington and Burling. He wrote or signed an amicus brief supporting the DC Gun ban-the first evidence of a real political agenda.

    Under Obama as AG, his reputation for being a non partisan career attorney came to a crashing halt. most of us who knew him when he worked under Clinton were sort of surprised.

    I would note, while I have no use for the Obama administration, Holder served the USA very well for many years and that should be taken into account rather than damning him for being part of an incompetent and perhaps corrupt administration
    wolf in sheep"s clothing... He's terrible now. I"d tend think he was neutered during those other administration and had to have made it known he had a big chip in his radical shoulder and was ready to take off his mask..any vetting of him shows hes radical race grievance driven far left advocate

    I love when libs play that canard.. its priceless nonsense..

    where is Zel Miller?.. the last decent demo
    LOL, it was the other way around.

    The conservative Democrats all left the party after the civil rights act was passed. And after some pandering by Nixon and then later Reagan, they became Republicans.

    The fact that the conservatives left the Democratic party years ago is honestly the best thing to ever happen to the Democrats. Those idiots are the GOP's problem now, and are destroying the party.

    next AG:


    wild Bill Clinton




    except for his license to practice law being pulled
    would have been a fun ride tho. lots o' payback

    so, here are the probably replacement candidates:
    Report: Former U.S. Attorney in Seattle Jenny Durkan a possible choice to replace Holder | Q13 FOX News

    Michell will 86 kamala harris' prospects ... she will want her to remain as far away as possible on the left coast and not in DC

    heaven help us if that idiot - yes idiot - jeh johnson of homeland security is nominated (guess i won't be riding any more passenger airplanes after that comment; hello no-fly list)

    Obama expects to make one more SC nomination before his term is up. could he be getting ready to nominate holder. almost as bad as clarence thomas. almost

    or is the white house now aware of something which will make the Obama administration very vulnerable over the next few months. while i won't rule it out, apparently, Obama has tried to persuade holder to stay on the job and that does not square with the need to discard holder to avoid embarrassment to the administration
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Carter Stewart. US Attorney for the Southern District Of Ohio. A Harvard Law grad, he was in AG Holder's advisory committee. good reputation-not a partisan.

    he was a trial attorney for one US Attorney's office, has been a US attorney for most of Obama's term in office=plenty of experience. being a US attorney is probably the best experience for the job since a US Attorney's office is a miniature version of the DOJ--

    you have civil cases, you have criminal cases, you have to interact with federal and state LE agencies as well as various public interest groups

    plus the guy is articulate, gives good interviews and is a straight shooter and honest

    I follow a very large number of forums, and in some, I'm very quiet, unassuming liberal who almost never posts.

    The word among Liberal circles, where they feel free to talk among themselves...

    Holder is quitting the DOJ, to make himself free from legal/conflict obligations, so that when a particular fatally ill SCOTUS Justice dies, Holder will be nominated to be the replacement.

    You don't have to respond, its a rhetorical question.


    The only radicals around right now in the USA are those on the far right.
