The headline in this article in the Washington Post opinion section characterizes Attorney General Holder as President Obama’s albatross and then lists some of General Holder’s missteps, some political and some more substantive. The bottom line is that he is grossly incompetent.
Some of the comments appended to the article are interesting. One suggests that President Obama will keep him around as a criticism sponge, to absorb the criticism otherwise directed at himself. In a sane world that could not continue indefinitely, particularly after President Obama expressed complete confidence in General Holder.
Do we live in a sane world? I haven’t seen much lately to suggest that we do.
Who could President Obama appoint to replace a disgraced General Holder and what would be the consequences, assuming that Holder knows where the skeleton closets are?
