Battenfeld: Hack displays her ignorance
Boston Herald ^ | April 10, 2014 | Joe Battenfeld

Even by the low standards of Congress, Loretta Sanchez’s performance ranks as a disgrace. The Democrat from California managed — in just a few minutes — to turn the congressional investigation of the marathon terror bombings into a political hatchet job, while demonstrating her complete ignorance of basic facts of the case.

Sanchez somehow butchered the names of the alleged terror bombers not once, but three times, calling the Tsarnaev brothers “Tsarnavar,” then “Tsarnev,” and finally “Tsarnov.”

“There are still unanswered questions about the Tsarnavar brothers,” the tongue-tied congresswoman said. Yes, like, how to pronounce the names of the terrorists. Sorry, alleged terrorists.

Even worse, Sanchez didn’t seem to know that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is the one facing trial, and that his older brother Tamerlan — or “Tamarind” as Sanchez called him — is the one killed during their attempted escape.

Sanchez also flubbed the names of the Watertown police chief who was testifying, and generally sounded like an idiot.

“Resilience and response are two of the reasons why, almost a year ago, the Boston metropolitan area, why, almost a year from ago, the Boston metropolitan area remains strong,” Sanchez said.

This from a genius who is the second-ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee, or as she calls herself on her website, “the most senior female member” of the committee. Never hurts to throw in a plug for your gender.

The nine-term lawmaker from Orange County said she was reading from the statement of the senior Democrat on the committee, U.S. Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.), so apparently he deserves some of the blame, too.

But the most disgraceful thing Sanchez did was to turn the hearing into a chance to bash Republicans.

Continued.“I find it rather unfortunate that the review was delayed because of the senseless 16-day government shutdown in October of 2013,” she said, reading from the same statement. .Never mind that Congress takes weeks off for holidays and breaks. Sanchez is just reading from the Democratic playbook — blame the shutdown for everything..Not surprisingly, yesterday’s performance was not the biggest gaffe of the congresswoman’s career. Check out this rambling racist rant in Sanchez’s 2010 re-election campaign against her Vietnamese opponent..“The Vietnamese and the Republicans are, with an intensity, (trying) to take this seat — this seat (from which) we have done so much for our community — to take this seat and give it to this Van Tran, who is very anti-immigrant and very anti-Hispanic,” Sanchez said in an interview.

Must be comforting for the victims and families of the horrific marathon bombings to know that Sanchez is on the case... And this woman is member Congress ??

How this illegal alien supporter entered Congress by "beating" American patriot Congressman Bob Dornan in a vote corrupted by Democrat engineered citizenship and voter fraud ("Citizenship USA") - what more could be expected. From her Wikipedia article:then VP Gore's program to election:
"Sanchez won by 984 votes, and Dornan contested the election, alleging that many votes were cast by people who were not American citizens. A Congressional investigation found evidence that 624 votes were indeed cast by non-citizens. An additional 124 votes had already been thrown out by California officials. {Claiming that} These votes were not enough to throw Sanchez's victory into doubt,... the investigation was halted and the outcome was upheld by a Republican-controlled Congress,[24] making Sanchez the first American of Mexican heritage to represent Orange County in Congress.} Dornan continues to assert that illegal voter registration of non-citizens was decisive in Sanchez's victory. In consultation with the INS, the House committee identified as many as 4,700 questionable registration affidavits.

And remember Sanchez is were she is thanks to a ball-less GOP's failure back Bob Dornan .
