This Is Becoming A Common Theme

Holder Admits to Not Reading Arizona's Immigration Law Despite Criticizing It

When asked by Rep.Ted Poe, R-Texas, how he could have constitutional concerns about a law he has not read, Holder said: "Well, what I've said is that I've not made up my mind. I've only made the comments that I've made on the basis of things that I've been able to glean by reading newspaper accounts, obviously, television, talking to people who are on the review panel...looking at the law."

This man is a lawyer. He's the Attorney General of the United States. He forms his opinions by watching news accounts of the issue at hand. Any questions?

Affirmative action strikes again. I can't believe this lazy moron is AG.

When I ask my lawyer to check out a contract, he shoots back a point by point pro & con report which shows he read ever single word.

I wonder if we are not just now being exposed to the ramifications of affirmative action programs. By all means, let us admit people to law school based on skin color, rather than on the basis of their intellectual achievements.

That said, I suppose there is a neurosurgeon practicing some where in America who finished last in his class.

Since when has reading anything stood in the way of this bunch of fools. They passed health care without reading, they criticized the police in the Gates case without reading or knowing the fact.They speak against and act against the Constitution with every reading it, so This should come as no surprise.

Leftists seem to have a nasty habit of not actually reading legislation, despite the fact that IT IS THEIR JOB.

Ugh, why am I not surprised?

Chuck said...

Cube, just more from the empty suit crowd. Nothing they say has any relevance anymore.

Mustang, an affirmative action President hiring an affirmative action AG, this is what you get.

Ticker, give the man a cigar. This was my point exactly. I was thinking of the health care bill

Brooke, it is 10 pages long.

This is typical of left wingers. I've had discussions with several people who claim to be against the Arizona law. Not one had read it before making up their minds and mouthing off about it.

MK said...

What does surprise me is that someone actually asked him and then proceeded to grill him on it. Not that a leftist can be shamed into doing the right thing, but hey, it's always good to squeeze them anyway.

"However, varying public opinion polls show 60-70 percent of Americans support the law."

Any republicans reading that, there's a policy position that's ripe for the taking guys, yo'all might want to think about that, with an election coming up and all.

Chuck said...

Phil, they all support health care and don't know what it's about

MK, I think it's a winner for the GOP as long as they don't come off as racist
