You really need to work overtime at being an asshole to be even less popular than Obama.
Last week U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that he would be stepping down, drawing to a close his six-year stint at the Justice Department. The nation’s first African-American attorney general and a close ally of Barack Obama, Holder’s legacy is will be a subject of fierce debate – while he has been lauded for his work protecting civil rights, he has critics on both the left and the right.
A new YouGov poll that asked Americans how they view the nation’s top law enforcement officer shows him to be a controversial public figure.
37% view Eric Holder unfavorably, to only 26% who view him favorably. Americans tend to disapprove of the job he’s done as attorney general by a similar margin (27%-39%). However, at least a third of Americans are not sure how to answer either question, a reminder that even some of the most visible cabinet members reach only a limited national audience.
That’s true. Obama’s low-info voters are so stupid they can’t even name any of his cabinet members. When you’re an Obama cultists, only one man matters. Meanwhile, if Obama is looking to drive his approval down even lower, he’ll nominate this jerk for the next AG.
Rumors that President Barack Obama may tap controversial Labor Secretary Tom Perez to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder are drawing fire from government and labor watchdogs.
The White House is considering naming Perez to be the nation’s top law enforcement official, according to a report published Monday by Politico. Perez, a two-time Obama appointee at the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division and the Department of Labor, would succeed Holder, whose tenure was marred by controversy, scandal, and calls for his resignation.
“Perez fits all the qualities that Eric Holder had: A lack of ethics, disrespect for the rule of the law, and placing ideology first,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
In other words, just like Obama.
