Once held in contempt, Holder isn't going anywhere soon

Washington (CNN) - Attorney General Eric Holder has been bruised and battered by Republicans who made him the first-ever sitting Cabinet member to be held in contempt of Congress.

He's been knocked around in behind-the-scenes White House battles with some of President Barack Obama's top advisers.

    Man the gop just can't get over not having control of everything, here's an idea, win an election!! Your whole party dies nothing but campaign 24/7, on our dime, while doing the bidding for the Koch brothers who spend hundreds of millio?ns to push their agenda, tax free if course

    They kind of sort of remind me of the Kennedy brothers, John and Robert.

    Holder just plain stinks. He might even be worse than Janet Reno. Anybody who makes a statment saying "We need to brainwash people into thinking guns are bad" should not be the AG.

    Sorry repubs. Not one investigational hearing has found any wrong doing.
    Your opinions based on Fox "spews" opinions do not magically make Holder guilty of any accusations. If you feel these investigative hearings are beneficial, why aren't you demanding one to look in to congress' role in the recent government shutdown? Let's find out who's really guilty. Don't really want the answer to that one do you?
