Attorney General Eric Holder told a group of law students today he may not have enough "gas left in the tank" to continue as President Obama's top law enforcement leader.

Holder made the remark at the University of Baltimore on Thursday, reports the Washington Post.

Holder, who has been embroiled in the "Fast and Furious" gun trafficking scandal, may leave the administration as soon as this summer or as late at 2014, reports the Washington Post.

Holder's possible departure signals a shakeup in Obama's second-term cabinet in which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will also leave her role.

I cannot wait to see you go, i hope that border patrol agents death haunts you for the rest of your life you f-ing POS

Dave @ 11/8/2012 5:56 PM

Chuck, you are being way to kind in your assessment of Mr. Holder. I am thinking of much more descriptive adjectives concerning the gentleman. Could the rats be fleeing a sinking ship?

john @ 11/8/2012 6:20 PM

Don't let the door hit you in the backside, good riddance, and I am using kind words, I whish I could say what I really feel. Also, I am afraid who his replacement will be, could it be any worse than this guy?

hank hill @ 11/8/2012 6:27 PM

he sure as hell has enough hot air!

michael @ 11/8/2012 6:32 PM

BYE!!!!!!!!

starrman69 @ 11/8/2012 6:52 PM

I certainly hope that he is out of gas, that he realizes that he was and is over his head and that he is resigning to gracefully bow out of public surface, never to surface again, as opposed to preparing himself for a presidential appointment to a federal judgeship in a supreme fashion....Just fade away, far away and never forget about that Border Patrol Agent that died in that fiasco...

Walkin trails @ 11/8/2012 7:18 PM

Agreed! He should never have been appointed, and certainly should have been fired. Out of gas? I guess green energy doesn't go very far.

PD @ 11/8/2012 10:46 PM

This would be the only good news with Obama's re-election... bye-bye...

ed @ 11/8/2012 10:58 PM

What about your decision to bring the terrorist here n try them. And how u only got one conviction out of 400 plus charges. You have proven that you are not a good AGn even not a good attorney. Hope u do leave rather then later, before u let someone else die or good free.

He needs to be prosecuted and sent to Prison for Operation Fast & Furious and the deaths connected with that on both sides of the border. Obama needs to be impeached for extending "Executive Privlidge" to cover it up. People went to prison over Watergate and the President had to resign and there were no Deaths connected with those crimes.

DEADMAN @ 11/9/2012 2:32 AM

Indict his ass before he flees the country,get him and those pos in the state department and white house who didn't send any help to those four guys in Bengazi.

Mike @ 11/9/2012 5:58 AM

You can run but you can't hide... You WILL have to answer for some of the "Stupid or Agenda Driven" decisions you made in the past to include Fast & Furious!

Mark @ 11/9/2012 6:10 AM

Eric Holder is a liberal nit wit who should never have been placed in a position of such important responsibility. He should have been arrested for his role in F & F. Hiding under the cover of exec. priviledge? What a sham. LE is in trouble with four more years of this stuff.

Rick @ 11/9/2012 6:21 AM

I'm sure this worthless P.O.S. will turn up again... Probably as Obama's nominee for Supreme Court Justice! Just what we need! He's nothing but a liar who caused the death of innocent people... not much different than the Benghazi incident; and they still have the audacity to blame "that" on some ficticious video! Come on people... How the hell do you sleep at night?

Augie @ 11/9/2012 6:22 AM

ZERO credibility. Stick a fork in him, he's been done. And we still want to know who authorized Fast & Furious.

Tom Ret @ 11/9/2012 6:26 AM

He is well qualified to be the head of the new black panther party.

S.S @ 11/9/2012 6:37 AM

So what's the hold up? Why the hell are you waiting til the summer or even waiting as long as 2014? Just leave now!!! Trust me you won't be missed. If you look up the word'INCOMPETENT" in the dictionary you will definately see the A.G. Holder along with the rest of the Obama administration. Good riddance.

Bill @ 11/9/2012 8:47 AM

I'll believe it when I see it! And then we'll probably go from bad to worse.

Jason Barnes @ 11/9/2012 11:38 AM

Holder is corrupt and arrogant. Has been involved in many major crimes, some (such as Fast and Furious) in full partnership with Obama. He has also blocked many anti-terrorist programs and blocked prosecution of terrorists who were caught red-handed, such as the major planned attack in NYC. He has also blocked the prosecution of Black Panthers and NAACP activists for voter intimidation and fraud.

Holder belongs in prison. As far as kicking him out of the AG job, the sooner the better.

Frank @ 11/10/2012 9:25 AM

It's pretty sad day in the history of this country that we cannot find one nice word to say about this guy. I cannot recall one thing Holder has done for the All the people of this country since being appointed. I'm over joyed that this POS we call our Top AG does not know how to be fair with all sides. He's another person who has contributed to the increase in racial problems in this country ten-folds. I guess the two three issues with me are Fast Furious, Terry's death and the Black Pather/Zimmerman issue. So where is he headed to the useless UN to warm a seat for the next four years? So go riddens! We will probably end up with the President from the Black Panthers or MS13 as the next AG.
