What does it take to fire an Attorney General?

Yesterday, I referenced the incredible video of Eric Holder doing his damnedest to avoid using the phrase "radical Islam" and called on his ouster.

Today, I double down on that call after reading this crock of horse-poop:

Despite repeatedly voicing concerns about Arizona's new immigration enforcement law in recent weeks and threatening to challenge it, Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday he has not yet read the law -- which is only 10 pages long.

"I have not had a chance to -- I've glanced at it," Holder said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing when asked by Rep.Ted Poe, R-Texas whether Holder has read the state law cracking down on illegal immigrants.

"I'll give you my copy of it if you would like," Poe responded.

Holder told reporters last month that he fears the new law is subject to abuse and that the Justice Department and the Homeland Security Department are in the midst of conducting a review.

The Arizona law requires local and state law enforcement to question people about their immigration status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally, and makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally.

There's only so much incompetence that should be tolerated at any level and I think Holder reached that threshold some time ago.

Obama should let the man go... except for the fact that Obama himself is incompetent... in fact, Holder is simply a reflection of the man who appointed him.

I truly am tired of all this hope and change.

Eric Holder is one of the greatest dangers to the survival of the United States as we have known it. Of course, Obama HATES the United States as we've known it...making Holder perfect for his purposes.

Too much!

My guess is it wont happen as Barry is so incompetent he cant even see his own incompetence.

(Sorry, I just needed to take a few minutes to roll on the floor laughing)

Anyway, the moment Holder becomes an incontrovertible liability to ... that, you know, that thing, what I said before ... he'll go under the bus so fast we won't even feel the bump as the wheels go over him.

Lets be honest, Barry needs to asuage his huge ego daily and is selfish in this way. Holder is merely a figment of Barrys twisted imagination, thus, if the time arises that Barry must do away the tax cheat policies he surrounds his ass with, Holder will vanish just as quick as the 20 million jobs have vanished under Barrys watch.


Most attorneys are incompet... (Below threshold)

Most attorneys are incompetent. My experience is that you only win a case because your attorney is slightly less incompetent than his adversary.

Holder will not read anything until absolutely forced to do so.

Sorry gang, truth hurts.

This response reflects the only two choices you really have at any time with this administration: incompetence or lying. Flip a coin.

DaveD, I'd say Holder is an incompetent liar.

Obama won't fire him because they are two of a kind. The only way to get rid of him is through the elections. May we endure long enough to vote them all out of office.

I'm confident that there's still plenty of room under that bus, but this won't get him there because, at present, his presence does not yet hinder something Obama wants.

Let me put it another way: Holder is a convenient lightning rod. The purpose of a lightning rod is to let dangerous energies have a place they can strike and be channeled away from something one values.

Holder is just another hand-picked, Hussein ass kisser and Marxist thug. Like THAT'S news!

If incompetence were ground... (Below threshold)
Dave H:

If incompetence were grounds for dismissal, who would be left in the present administration? The whole thing is just a bunch of people who've never accomplished anything but foster their own careers. That's Obama's idea of competence: the ability to work the system for personal advancement. Since that's all he's ever accomplished, why should anyone in his administration be held to a higher standard than the chief?

The first order of business... (Below threshold)

The first order of business for the GOP in the new Congress in 2011 should be to sic special prosecutors on Holder, Geithner, Napolitano, and the other assorted crooks in the administartion.

You can't fire an affirmative-action hire. Not without a lawsuit. And since Holder pretends to be a lawyer, . . .

Mr Holder did you read the law?
Yes, yes I did.

Thats all he had to do - he isnt even smart enough to lie.

I particularly liked the part where Holder says that he hasn't been "briefed" on the statute (who needs to be "briefed" on a a 10-page document anyway?), so Poe takes about 30 seconds to "brief" the statute for Holder.

Well, we have a SCOTUS nominee who has never been a judge and has barely practiced law and an Attorney General making pronouncements on statutes he hasn't taken the time to read. We also have a Congress passing bills without knowing what's in them. Bizarro World.

I would imagine much more then mass murder, otherwise Janet Reno would have been fired and then prosecuted for being an ugly murdering bi- scag.
