Holder hasn't read Ariz. law he criticized

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.

This weekend Mr. Holder told NBC's "Meet the Press" program that the Arizona law "has the possibility of leading to racial profiling." He had earlier called the law's passage "unfortunate,"...

Yep, they both criticize it but haven’t read it. Just like most in Congress when they pass laws.

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.

That's because he is criticizing what he perceives to be the intent behind the law - the cutting off of a critical supply of future Democrat voters.

Well, Mr. Holder is in deep $hit, because the law is just a state version of fed law. He won’t do anything, because he can’t.

Holder’s taking a page out of his boss Odumbo’s book: accusing Arizona of “acting stupidly” while admitting he knows absolutely nothing about it.

10 pages, double spaced, with headers, fairly large font, and wide margins.

That translates to about two pages of normal type.

Yet he didn’t bother reading it before criticizing it.

I hate these people.

He said he expects he will read the law by the time his staff briefs him on their conclusions.

The top law enforcement officer in the country cannot read a 20 page law before he criticizes the law. This is what happens when people are driven by ideology and not the rule of law.

Stunning.

Just like nobody read the Duelfer Report. If they had they would have found that Duelfer said the press would be grossly mischaracterizing the report if they put out a headline saying “No WMD’s Found in Iraq!” As it turns out everybody in government read the headlines - “No WMD’s Found in Iraq!” and didn’t bother with reading the report at all.

That’s why this nation is doomed to extinction if we don’t force the public (and government officials) to realize that what they read or hear in the MSM is pure propaganda with no basis in fact.

Seems like our “leaders” think they can govern this country by reading comic books. No grasp of the seriousness of the roles they’re pretending to fill.

Its a short law.

Reading it takes no more than two minutes for a non AA person.

Twenty for an AA baby.

They are waiting for Bertha Lewis to arrive so she can read it to the Odinga administration.

1. That's racist expecting me to read it. Now quit axe-ing me about it...
2. Bush's fault.
3. I don't need to read no stink’n bill.
4. ‘deadFish’ say’s I don't gotta read it.
5. I'm the AG and I am above the law.
6. I'm too busy spinning the birth certificate thingy..
7. Sorry...could you repeat the question Alex.

I am not surprised by his admission. Leftist like him cannot help but reveal themselves. However, the libMedia will come up with all sorts of excuses to cover his a$$.

When all said and done, Holder will come out looking like the savior to the illegals and will get a Nobel Prize.
