Several dozen members of Congress have called for AG Eric Holder’s resignation over Fast & Furious. Holder isn’t happy about it, and blames… the Daily Caller?

Embattled Attorney General Eric Holder today demanded The Daily Caller stop publishing articles about the growing calls in Congress for his resignation because of the failed Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking program.

As Holder’s aide was escorting the attorney general offstage following his remarks Tuesday afternoon at the White House, a Daily Caller reporter introduced himself and shook Holder’s hand. The reporter asked him for a response to the growing chorus of federal legislators demanding his resignation.

Holder stepped towards the exit, then turned around, stepped back toward the reporter, and sternly said, “You guys need to — you need to stop this. It’s not an organic thing that’s just happening. You guys are behind it.”

Wow, I had no idea the Daily Caller wielded this kind of influence in the halls of Congress.

Here’s the audio:

By “you guys” I guess Holder could have been spouting off about select members of the media in general, because it’s not just the Daily Caller that’s taking the blame for this administration’s failings. CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson has been yelled at as well.

The entire modus operandi of this administration is to cast blame for their mistakes, flubs and incompetency — whether it’s Obama on the lousy economy (“it isn’t my initiatives that are flawed, it’s that America has gotten too lazy to properly implement them”) or Holder on Fast & Furious (“if you reporters wouldn’t tell people about it there would be no scandal”).

    How true; it`s only a scandal because the general public has learned about it !

    I guess that means F&F went wrong only because people learned about it, not because it was a totally bad idea from the git-go !

    Does that mean I'm really only wearing polka-dot underwear if somebody sees it? Okaaaaay … sounds a lot like phenomenology.

    Sounds like "It`s only a crime IF you get caught" and then only if you can`t pass the blame sufficient to CYA !

    It’s not an organic thing that’s just happening.

    Oh SPARE me the Prog-Approved (TM) lingo. It doesn't mean a f@cking thing outside elitist cocktail circles so just give it up Holder. 'Organic'… sheesh! Don't you @-holes ever use normal non-marching order words?

    I'm pretty sure to Brian Terry's family he was very MUCH 'organic'. At least he was. While only audio, it basically sounded like a scuffle. Someone's got their gangsta' ON…! Organic my azz…

    …and if you’d stop telling people that the tree that fell in the woods actually made noise even though they didn’t hear it, they’d believe that trees that fall really don’t make noise if no one hears it.

    Well, guess what Eric, the noise made doesn’t depend on your hearing, it makes noise whether you hear it or not.

    Hey, Eric, can we apply your logic(?) to the Cain mutiny and blame that on the DAILY CALLER too, or does that on go on TEAM ZERO and the media enablers?
