With the breaking news that Attorney General Eric Holder personally signed off on the warrant that allowed the Justice Department to search Fox News reporter James Rosen's personal email, the far left and the far right and pretty much everyone in between, finally found an issue they can all agree on..... Attorney General Eric Holder must go.
Sarah Palin certainly qualifies as the far right and she asks on Twitter "Where is the apology and resignation of your attorney general, Mr. President? http://fb.me/MZDSVlXQ
Huffington Post, who qualifies as the far left, headlines with "Time To Go: Holder Ok'd Press Probe"
Even before this latest revelation, far lefties like Daily Kos and Esquire were calling for Holder's resignation and/or his firing.
Then you have the whole lying to Congress thing going on and it is pretty clear Holder has got to go, but as of May 16, 2013, Barack Obama was still saying "I have complete confidence in Eric Holder as attorney general. He does his job with integrity and I expect he will continue to do so."
Duuuuuude, there is thing called a dictionary, which states clearly that "integrity" includes "soundness of moral character and honesty"...Look. It. Up.
Then again on Thursday, May 23, 2013, Barack Obama says:
Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs. Our focus must be on those who break the law. That is why I have called on Congress to pass a media shield law to guard against government over-reach. I have raised these issues with the Attorney General, who shares my concern. So he has agreed to review existing Department of Justice guidelines governing investigations that involve reporters, and will convene a group of media organizations to hear their concerns as part of that review. And I have directed the Attorney General to report back to me by July 12th.
Are you kidding me? That is like asking a pedophile to babysit your children. (It is analogy, not saying Holder is a pedophile)
I suppose like the Benghazi attack, the AP phone records seizure, the IRS targeting conservatives scandals, Fast and Furious, and Solyndra, etc....Obama will again claim he knew nothing about it, until he read the NBC report about Holder personally signing off on the warrant against Rosen?
Note to Obama- Plausible deniability only works when it is, you know, plausible!
