Eric Holder Considers Himself The President's 'Wingman'

Funny - a lot of us do, too.

In a a radio interview, today,  Attorney General Eric Holder refused to answer a question about when he might leave the administration.

Instead, the top lawman professed his allegiance to President Barack Obama.

 “I’m still enjoying what I’m doing, there’s still work to be done.  I’m still the President’s wing-man, so I’m there with my boy.  So we’ll see,” Holder said in an interview on the Tom Joyner radio show.

On June 20, 2012, Obama claimed executive privilege to cover Holder from releasing Fast and Furious documents sought by House investigators.

Holder, who was held in criminal and civil contempt of congress  on June 28, 2012, said, "I can deal with all the nonsense.  I can deal with whatever they throw at me.  I grew up tough in New York City, you know, so if this is the best they’ve got in Washington, I’m ready for it."

The Obama administration got hundreds of Mexicans and one, (perhaps two) American law enforcement agents killed due to the criminally stupid gun running scheme, Fast and Furious.  So far, they've gotten away with it.
