Who Is Misguided? Obama AG Eric Holder Admits He Never Read AZ Anti- Illegal Immigration Law … But Has No Problem Criticizing It
WELCOME TO OBAMALAND …
We will once again ask the question … WHO IS MISGUIDED?
President Barack Hussein Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, admitted during a hearing with the House Judiciary Committee that he has not read the new Arizona anti-illegal immigration bill. However, Holder has no issue criticizing the bill and has repeatedly spoken out against it in repeatedly. Holder does not get the cover that Democrats used with Obamacare citing that the bill was nearly 3000 pages. Arizona’s new immigration law is only 10 pages.

One has to wonder whether Obama has read the Arizona law either or any of his other attack minions that he sets out to make claims that the law is racist and would lead to racial profiling. Holder could not find the time to read 10 pages yet he found the time to show up on media outlet after media outlet to criticize and make allegations.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who has been critical of Arizona’s new immigration law, said Thursday he hasn’t yet read the law and is going by what he’s read in newspapers or seen on television.
Mr. Holder is conducting a review of the law, at President Obama’s request, to see if the federal government should challenge it in court. He said he expects he will read the law by the time his staff briefs him on their conclusions.
“I’ve just expressed concerns on the basis of what I’ve heard about the law. But I’m not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with people are doing the review, exactly what my position is,” Mr. Holder told the House Judiciary Committee.
How intellectually dishonest can this Administration get? Of course Holder did not read the bill, if pressed for details he could claim plausible deniability. Seriously, how could one have an opinion if they have zero first hand knowledge of what they are commenting on? It would appear that Hot Air has the same theory as to Obama’s minions not reading the bill … so that they can “have an excuse to walk back their criticisms later if this gets too hot politically?”
Rep. Ted Poe, who had questioned Mr. Holder about the law, wondered how he could have those opinions if he hadn’t yet read the legislation.
“It’s hard for me to understand how you would have concerns about something being unconstitutional if you haven’t even read the law,” the Texas Republican told the attorney general.

How does the Attorney General of the United States not read the most talked about hot button topic like the new AZ Immigration law, yet make negative comments and race bait the topic? It has become all too common with the Obama Administration.
The City Council voted 13-1 to bar Los Angeles from conducting business with Arizona unless the law is repealed. However, many disagree with the decision altogether.
Michelle Malkin states, While jihadists plot, our Justice Department panders. But pandering to who? All polls show that a majority of Americans are in favor of the new law and that individuals should have to prove that they are here legally.
