USA Today reported:


Attorney General Eric Holder says Sarah Palin is no better a legal analyst than a vice presidential candidate.

Asked about Palin’s call last week to impeach President Obama, Holder told ABC’s This Weekthat “she wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate (in 2008). She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

Palin and some other Republicans say they want to impeach Obama for issues ranging from the spike in illegal border crossings to what they call excessive use of executive orders.

“President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here,” Palin wrote on the Breitbart website.

Holder, also the target of some impeachment calls, attributed them to Republicans who seek to block the Obama administration at every turn. In the ABC interview aired Sunday, Holder said:

“For whatever reason, (some) Republicans decided early on that this was a president they were just simply not going to cooperate with. And over the past five-and-a-half years, we have seen demonstrations of that, where the president has reached out his hand, offered compromises that have simply not been met (in the way) they have been in the past by a Republican Party willing to do the appropriate things.”
