The Senate 'Gentlemen's Club' Gangs Up on Michele Bachmann
American Thinker ^ | 07/25/2012 | Daren Jonescu

Posted on 07/25/2012 7:48:35 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

The latest skirmish in the growing war within the GOP began when John McCain took to the Senate floor last week to lecture Michele Bachmann and other GOP Representatives about their letters to various federal officials regarding Muslim Brotherhood influence within the U.S. government. (See also: Obama Administration Draws Closer to Egypt's Moslem Brotherhood.)

McCain was followed by a predictable limbo line -- how low can you go? -- of Republican bigwigs, elected and unelected, most of them singling out Bachmann for mockery after she had the temerity to suggest that some of America's enemies might be trying to infiltrate the government in order to affect foreign policy decisions.  (Imagine that!)

McCain, John Boehner, et al., for all their (real or feigned) outrage over Bachmann's call for an investigation into the process of granting a security clearance to Hillary Clinton's deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, have offered no rational grounds for condemning the congresswoman's statements.  In fact, they have thoroughly exaggerated and misrepresented the position presented in the letter at issue, which, with regard to Abedin, merely asks whether she was properly questioned regarding immediate family associations with an international organization dedicated to goals antithetical to U.S. interests.

For all those who complain that the GOP is sluggish and reactive - see how hard they fight against their true enemy!

Which is - apparently - Michelle Bachmann.

Not the Democrats. Not ‘You didn’t Build That’. Not Obamacare.

Michelle Bachmann.

After reading McCain's diatribe, I sent Bachmann a campaign contribution. McCain is a disgrace to the Senate, the country, and military honor he once received.

The Senate 'Gentlemen's Club'

It doesn't have one "Gentleman" in that club. Nothing but a bunch of traitorous cowards. Hell would be too good for them.

Romney Republicans. Only one backbone among ‘em. And they’re only allowed to check it out and use it if they promise only to attack conservatives.

They are financial supporters of well connected establishment politicians.

John McCain has demonstrated TIME AND AGAIN that he is among the most depsicable pieces of trash to have ever contaminated the American political scene.

Cry Baby Boehner and less than useless Mitch McConnell are other reasons that the GOP “Establishment” needs to face a political purge which will remove these self-entitled elitists from the political scene. FURTHER, ALL Congressmen need to be STRIPPED of ALL their perks and put on a steady diet of TERM LIMITS - NO EXCEPTIONS. It will keep our “friends” from morphing into our Enemies.

Never did care for her as a presidential candidate, but she has been an admirable congresswoman, doing her job as it ought to be done. We could use at least 500 more like her in Congress.

And here we get to the nub of it, it seems to me. The letters at the center of this controversy were signed by five members of Congress. Four of them are men. The fifth -- and the only one whose name is being dragged through the mud -- is Bachmann. Notice anything interesting about that?
Rollins, McCain, Boehner, Scott Brown, and the rest of the insiders are not out there saying, as Rollins did of Bachmann, "Louie Gohmert's accusations are extreme and dishonest," or "Shame on you, Trent Franks!" The accusations of extremism and ethical impropriety are all directed at Bachmann, and Bachmann alone.

Well said!

For in truth, it appears there is not a gentleman among them.

Hear, hear!

Courage, Bachmann. You don't stand alone.

ALL of those3 who criticized Bachmann and Malkin MUST be on the Muslim pauyroll, getting rich on our Petrodollars AS WELL as our Taxes!!!!

I am OUTRAGED!!!

We need to FLOOD McCain and Boehner and McConnell’s office with letters of condemnation as well as flood Bachmann and Malkin with letters of support.

Islam is out to Mohammadize America and McCain, Boehner et al are doing THEIR level best to support them!!!

The MB is funded and backed by wealthy Arab states. You think they don't have Senators and Congressmen on their payroll?

This is typical for the RINO Dhimmi GOP elite. They all make me sick. Until we get rid of these spineless parasites nothing will change.

” - - - Bachmann’s call for an investigation into the process of granting a security clearance to Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin - - - “

Sounds reasonable to me!

What is Hilly trying to hide?

Why are the RINOs protecting Hilly?

What is the connection between Hilly’s right hand guy Huma, and the recent leaks to the Media of classified secrets by White House Staff members?

Was the EO by Obama to protect AG Holder connected in any way to Huma?

Did Huma “encourage” Obama to reject the XL pipeline?

Was Huma involved in the planning or coverup of Holder’s Fast and Furious gun deal?

BTW, wasn’t it Lame-Brain McCain in 2008 who refused to investigate the eligibility of Sen. Barack Obama? I guess old habits of see-no-evil are hard to break - - - .

I’m amazed and disgusted by the responses I receive from phone calls to Cong and Sen reps. Many aspects STINK about this whole thing, and it is an attack on women and Conservatives. Where is the outrage???

We have a moderate presidential nominee and the moderates of congress think they see their chance to get rid of the filthy conservatives.

The “moderates” are the true purists.

WHY THE GOOD OLD BOYS ARE UPSET

Bachman asked the question in writing because she already knows the answer.

And she knows the Good Old Boys are part of the insider-favoritism problem.

They resent her thinking insiders should have to play by the rules.
And even more - resent her making it public.

Notice how republicans cover for Hillary and turn against a fellow republican for having the gall to question Hillary?

Add Marco Rubio the mini-McCain to the list. Hopefully Rubio will self destruct before he has another term in the Senate!
