Eric Holder: Obama's Alter-Ego
Michael A. Walsh answers the question "How does Holder survive?" The answer: "Because AG is Obama’s alter-ego — his fall would be a defeat and an insult. 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...Holder is, in short, the perfect apparatchik. And so he survives, trading punches with pesky congressmen and absorbing blows meant for the boss. For Obama to fire him would be like firing himself — and we all know that’s the last thing the president wants to do."
