How does Holder survive?
New York Post, by Michael A. Walsh

If you want to see the true face of the Obama administration, you need look no further than the president’s embattled attorney general, Eric Holder. By turns whiny, shifty, obfuscatory, petulant, insulting and arrogant, Holder has become a fixture before congressional investigating committees, fending off one Obama scandal after another, while proclaiming that he — the nation’s top cop — doesn’t know anything about anything and highly resents any implication that he does. Indeed, all the Obama scandals — the murderous gunrunning scheme called Fast and Furious, the secret monitoring of the Associated Press and Fox News reporter James Rosen

Holder survives because he is an Obama Mini Me. You just can´t get rid of the Mini Mes until you get rid of the Maxi Me.

If Obama believes Holder is a threat to him, he will be thrown under the bus just like his grandmother. Obama is confident in his polularity with his base and believes they will be loyal to him no matter what. Obama loves Obama more than Holder. Therefore, Holder will be sacrificed if necessary.

Agree with #3 Just want to add I´m waiting for the "Republicans Hate Women Defense" to protect Hitlery and Lerner. Holder is the Tom (Godfather) Hagen of this Administration, Obama is going to need a Sicilian as Sonny Corleone would say.

These groups Blacks and women wanted to be brought into the political process as equals, (they said) how are they doing?

Holder survives for one reason is that close to half he country agrees with is thug tactics being used to protect Obama. People develop opinions based on what they hear in the news. if the media doesn´t condemn various actions take by Obama and his henchmen,then they don´t develop an opinion and things slide because people aren´t sure they´re doing wrong.

A lot of this depends in what era you were born in and got an actual education. Textbooks are being re written all the time by leftists,in a major brainwashing effort on up and coming people. It´s just like having an easy way into college so professors can reward you with good grades if you agree with him for get failed because you believe in old America.You are targeted,abused and blackballed. if you believe in God or the Constitution which the left deems unsuitable for a government live by,then you´re a social outcast.You need to roll into the group think to get by.

Buying into group think comes back to haunt you because the real world rejects most of it,so you´re unemployable.Then you owe 1000´s of dollars in student loans,with no job skills to pay them back. Instead you vote dem year after year hoping for forgiveness.We have to bring foreigners in to do jobs the colleges fail to teach.

Asians have managed to survive group think and keep their eye on the ball to get educated because it´s part of their bringing up.They could say they´re pro gay or climate change just to get along without really believing the crap.American liberal students are happy just attending binge drinking parties.

He survives because he´s black.....

The affirmative action program has run amuck in this country.

Washington DC is filled to over/flowing with incompetent black personnel and so holder the courage/less will keep his job. No one will take him seriously -- but -- he´ll draw his taxpayer´s pay check and smile smugly at the cameras.... It´s the democratic way -- remember janet reno? She survived because she was a woman in comfortable shoes....

Holder has ice running in his blood and is as corrupt as the day is long.
Remember, he started out with Clinton, another corrupt Democrat - Mark Rich pardon, FLNA (?)etc.

He and the Bamster lie and lie because they know they can get away with it.
Hey, the Immigration bill will now assure their corruption continues till the Bamster is King of the World at the U.N.

It´s revealing to see Holder on candid video, from the side while walking and not just straight on while under official Capitol Hill scrutiny. His eyes dart here and there, justifiably worried someone is going to take him out, which would be beyond well deserved. He can´t believe what he´s gotten away with for how long and is ready for the worst. Ah those self fulfilling prophecies sometimes come true.

If Holder is treated like any other public figure and forced to pay for his transgressions (and they are many), there is a fear that politics and positions of power will not be ´safe´ for any black person. Fifty odd years of ´progress´ will go down the drain. This fear keeps the establishment turning a blind eye towards this excrescence. He will go only when 0bama goes.

He has survived so far because he thinks and acts like Obama himself. Whether driven by racial injustice or just pushing a liberal agenda, he actually believes the end justifies anything, even the illegal.

Until last week, the MSM has done a good job of protecting him and by extension his boss.
But dont think for one minute, if the worm turns and things start to close in on the WH, that Holder won´t be sacrificed. In fact, I think that is why he is still there. He can absorb all the outrage with no harm to Obama.
Then after most of the fury is spent, letting him resign will lance the boil. Then, O can plead how sad he is, but he is all about "Justice and the American Way". sickos ...all of them.

Holder is a symbol of the administration

He says outrageous racist comments. He lies and covers up and then "investigates" himself declaring himself correct and Obama is insulated from reality.

The administration cares about power. If no one is able to fight back, it does not matter what the law says. That is why they go after the IG, news media, and anyone else who speaks up.

Those are the low information voters. Give them what they want not what they earn and they will follow him to the end of the earth, especially if they take it away from someone they are envious of. Obama has turned selling envy into an art form. How do you educate those people - now a majority of our country.

It seems a long time ago, that dreadful December night in 1988 when fire and aeroplane debris rained down on the Scottish village of Lockerbie. A generation of Britons has been born unaware of the sense of foreboding we all felt that night, when news broke that a civilian passenger flight had been blown up in mid-air, killing 270 people, by a terrorist bomb concealed in a radio cassette player. It is easy to see why a younger generation finds it hard to understand that we need to be wary of Iran and its nuclear ambitions. But, back in 1988, few

President Barack Obama would veto a GOP-drafted bill that would allow legislators to take agency officials to court if they don’t enforce laws, according to a White House statement. The GOP is pushing the bill through the House because Obama has repeatedly declined to enforce laws he doesn’t like, say GOP legislators. “President Obama has refused to enforce those parts of our nation’s immigration laws that are not to his political liking, has waived portions of our welfare laws, has stretched our environmental laws to accommodate his policy objectives, and has waived testing accountability provisions required under the ‘No Child Left Behind’

Something potentially sinister is happening across America, and we should stop and take notice before it changes the character of our country forever.

Oversight member Rep.

The United States, like almost all English-speaking countries, has a two-party political system. That means we have big-tent parties, with a variety of competing political strains under each of the two tents. In other countries, such as Italy and Israel, they have small-tent parties, far more ideologically unified and, indeed, often based on a single political idea.

On economic policy, President Obama has consistently and thoroughly followed just the opposite of everything Reagan did. And that is why he has consistently and thoroughly gotten the opposite of Reagan’s results. Reagan slashed tax rates, with the top income tax rate reduced from 70% when he entered office to 28% when he left. (Federal tax revenues doubled during the 1980s.) Early in his first year, Reagan led Congress to cut federal spending by nearly 5%. Early in his first year, Obama led Congress to enact nearly $1 trillion in utterly wasted “stimulus” spending.

House Republicans have a worthy suggestion to protect Ukraine and increase the West’s leverage there: Deregulate American energy production and encourage oil and gas exports. The Department of Energy has been reluctant and slow to approve permits for shipping natural gas overseas, for instance, which the market demands from the U.S. for the first time. Crude-oil exports remain illegal. Energy production on federally owned lands has been dropping.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease.
