Carville to Obama: Fire Holder If He Won’t Indict Financiers
By David Baumann | September 16, 2011 12:08 pm

It’s become commonplace for Attorney General Eric Holder to be the target of criticism from conservatives.

Replace him, says Newt Gingrich.

He’s dangerous, says Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).

And those are the softer things that people on the right say.

But now, Holder is under fire from a new source.

Democratic strategist James Carville, known for his blunt assessment of political developments, says in a commentary on CNN that President Barack Obama had better panic over his political prospects.  And he lists a four-step plan. He says that Obama’s got to fire some people.

Here’s where Holder comes into play.

People are livid that “certain people in America finance” haven’t been held responsible for the financial collapse, Carville writes.

His solution?

“Demand from the attorney general a clear status of the state of investigation concerning these extraordinary injustices imposed upon the American people,” he wrote. “I know Attorney General Eric Holder is a close friend of yours, but if his explanations aren’t good, fire him too. Demand answers to why no one has been indicted. Mr. President, people are livid. Tell people that you, too, are angry and sickened by the irresponsible actions on Wall Street that caused so much suffering. Do not accept excuses. Demand action now.”
