The revolving door at the White House is seeing a lot of action this month, with Labor Secretary Hilda Solis being the latest to announce that she’s taking her talents elsewhere. Just last week, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner gave notice that he’d be leaving by the end of the month. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to resign, but she’s been a bit hard to pin down lately. So, who’s staying on to move the country forward and — more importantly — maintain that critical measure of diversity?

As long as we’re apologizing, we too are sorry, people, that Eric Holder is staying on for at least several months. He gave us hope back in November (briefly) that he’d be part of the second-term rush for the exits, telling a group of students that he was considering leaving. “Do I have gas left in the tank? It’s been an interesting and tough four years, so I really just don’t know,” Holder told them. A tough four years? Not as tough as the last two years for Brian Terry’s family.

So what’s keeping Holder around if he’s running on fumes? Well, the nation’s fever to grab guns from its citizens, even if it takes executive orders to do it, might have provided the necessary second wind.

Looks like it’s going to be an “interesting and tough” year for all of us.

    I thought I detected his foul stench of hypocrisy still lingering over the country.

    Really, is anyone surprised? He’ll stay around long enough for the gun-grab (attempt.)

  • NachoCheese (D)

    At this point, what does it even matter? If Eric the red were to resign, Obamao would just find an equally despicable lefty.

      That’s the truth. They get away with MURDER, literally. Holder should be in jail over F & F, if nothing else. If he were a conservative, he would be for sure!

    Why does Sock Puppet hate Mexicans so much?

    • Slapweasel

      Rumor has it that some guy, calling himself “Chuey”, sold him a quarter-ounce of oregano when Holder was sixteen.

  • sqeptiq

    Yay! Another four years of white conservatives crying about how racist black Holder and racist black Obama are oppressing whites!

    • tredglx

      Septic, you’re back. Nice to see you.

        Thanks. I wouldn’t want to go too long without showing some love to my Twitchy peeps.

    • itzyaboi95

      Black conservative right here.

    • erika348

      Wow – you just can’t get that it’s not racist to disagree with a Liberal can you? That’s incredibly racist of you.

    • Slapweasel

      You need a new T.V. We’re all watching things in technicolor now. Black and White went away with the Democrats’ attempts at segregation.
      …The More You Know **jinglestars**

      • sqeptiq

        Coming up: Megyn Kelly freaks out over the New Black Panthers
        yet again and Bill O’Reilly rants about how black Obama wants to help lazy blacks loaf on the dole at the expense of whites. But remember: it’s not about race!

        • Slapweasel

          Those glasses are messed up, too. I think you need to check the prescription, because “Kalidescope” makes things appear more racist than they are.

          • mdtljt

      Darn right, better get your act together conservatives 😉

      • itzyaboi95

        You mean do whatever to defend our rights.

  • tredglx

    Anybody at all surprised by this revelation?
    Not me…

  • rinodino

    So again here another example of conservative going ALL UP IN ARMS when Obama puts a person of color in a position. You guys have so many reasons why they shouldn’t be in office…. When Obama hires a white person to a post, this is all you come up with “OH where is all the minorities???” LMAO….. can’t make this stuff up righties, do yourself a favor– leave this topic alone, it’s a slow burn for ya’!

    • independentjones

      Has nothing to do with the color of his skin, but everything to do with the content of his character, (or, in this case, the lack thereof.)

      Uh, That’ll do, Donkey, that’ll do.

    • Slapweasel

      You’re so full of stupid, there’s a clown-car coming out your ass. It is not about COLOR, “clowny”.

      We take the Left’s “waaaahhhhh!!11… not enough minorityz!!!” and show them how ridiculous it is. We debate policy and ALL YOU SEE IS BLACK AND WHITE.

      …like I told your idiot friend; We’ve upgraded to technicolor in Hi-def. You’re still watching black & white.

      When your techniques are used against you, you’re too thick to even see it.
      The next time you roll off your Transformers sheets to tap something into your idiot-box, try having a clue. It helps in any process where debate is called for.

      • rinodino

        YAWN, calm down boy(Is that racist?) of course, can’t really see that most of the rights’ complaints have been geared towards Obama’s minority appointees and not his “White” ones, but all we see is BLACK AND WHITE? lol, please… time to get that HDMI cable, ‘cuse your HD ain’t coming out as good as it should

        • Slapweasel

          “Most”…. as always, you’re being vague. And wrong. Quantify if you want another response from me.
          …you know you want one, clowny.

        • Slapweasel

          Apparently you haven’t seen the backlash for Chuck Hagel or Jack Lew. Last time I checked, they were low on pigment.

          Oh, and by the way…
          You should worry about your own little clan. Concern trolling on our behalf by a moron not only comes across as half-assed, but stupid.

          Go back to your buddy, “Skippy’s” house, toke the bong and celebrate
          that you were able to scratch together enough cash to buy that little
          ionized air-cleaner, so his mom doesn’t smell “the kine”.

          Welcome a new day, tomorrow, and roll off the Batman sheets with a
          fresh new sense that “this may be the day I wake up and smell the
          Constitution of These Great United States of America”.

          Until that’s accomplished, you’ve done nothing more than drool the
          “Useful Idiot” pablum, for which you’re applauded amongst the drones of
          hatred.

          Another tip: Tell “Skippy” to take a shower.

          • SpinMeNot

            Don’t forget Tim “The Tax Wizard” Geithner, Hillary “I saw Bill do the diplomacy thing” Clinton, and John “The Recalcitrant War Hero” Kerry.

        • Hello Jerry (D)

          U mad bro?

            That’s a clown question, bro….lol!

        • http://www.facebook.com/noah.lee3 Noah Lee

          hey, I think Hagel is a horrible choice for Secdef. and last I checked, Hagel is a whitey. Plus, Kerry is an even worse choice for State than Susan Rice.

        I gotta ask tho, are the clowns racially, gender, and sexual orientation diverse. It could add new meaning to how many clowns can fit in a …

        sorry, really, sorry … back to my corner …

    • Hello Jerry (D)

      Leave it to a useless douche like you to bring up race!

    • http://www.facebook.com/noah.lee3 Noah Lee

      minority-wise, Obama doesn’t have a very deep bench if he can’t find any people of color to replace the ones that are leaving. Oh, and you are a twat.

  • Steve_J

    He’s staying becuase he can’t make as much in the private sector as he can in government service running guns to drug cartels in Mexico or terrorists in Libya.

  • K-Dubya

    I wonder if Mexico will return the Fast and Furious favor once Chicago Christ The Obama bans our guns?

  • nc

    Not only does Holder not have any “gas in his tank” he’s running on fumes and we’re all choking on them.

    • Let’em Crash

      are these fart jokes?

      • Hello Jerry (D)

        This current Administration is one big fart joke.

        • Let’em Crash

          But, am I missing something? The comments about his linger, your Human Whoopee Cushion, and this about choking on fumes. I’d love to know if he really is known for farting in meetings.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Damn, was hoping he would leave to pursue his dream of being a “Human Whoopee Cushion”…

    I support AG Holder . As well as decision to complete his 2nd term.

    A$$clown Holder has no choice but to stay. If he leaves someone will talk about all the mischief and mayhem he’s perpetuated over the last 4 years. Best way to cover it up is stay put.

    He wants to stick around so he can keep helping omuslim destroy the country!! Butt buddies till the end
