Conservatives want to confirm Eric Holder's replacement in the new Congress next year.
President Obama's numbers are still at record lows.
President Obama hit the links Saturday morning at Maryland's Andrews Air Force Base with ESPN's Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon.
Robert Gibbs doubled down on Obama's pledge to veto bills with earmarks, despite Senate majority leader's call to "back off."
"Bickering over the Obama's Saturday night date is chump change compared to some of the big stuff going on out there," Limbaugh said during his radio show today. "There's bigger stuff to grumble about than that," he later added.
The RNC had criticized Obama for flying to New York for a date with his wife while the country is in recession.
"As President Obama prepares to wing into Manhattan's theater district on Air Force One to take in a Broadway show, GM is preparing to file bankruptcy and families across America continue to struggle to pay their bills," RNC spokeswoman Gail Gitcho wrote to reporters.
"Have a great Saturday evening--even if you're not jetting off somewhere at taxpayer expense," she added.
But alas, Limbaugh isn't so enthused. The RNC really can't catch a break these days. Even when they go after the "low hanging fruit," conservatives (if Limbaugh is any indication) take issue with their strategy.
The Hill's Jessica Holzer reported that Banking Chairman Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Appropriations Housing Subcommittee Chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) called for Jackson's resignation, saying he failed to clear suspicions of impropriety when appearing before their panels.
Jackson had come under fire recently for alleged corruption, as The Washington Post reported in February that Jackson demanded the Philadelphia Housing Authority transfer a $2 million public property at a discount to a friend of his, and then vowed to strip the authority of some federal funding after it refused.
