Republicans Line Up to Rip Michelle Bachmann
Politico ^

Posted on 07/19/2012 11:04:12 PM PDT by Windy City Conservative

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said merely floating the idea that Huma Abedin — a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — has family ties to the radical Middle East group is “pretty dangerous.”

“I don’t know Huma, but from everything I do know of her, she has a sterling character,” Boehner told reporters Thursday. “And I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous.” Later on CNN, Boehner said he expects to speak to Bachmann soon.

Bachmann’s accusation came in a handful of letters to intelligence and national security agencies raising questions about the Muslim Brotherhood. The letters, also signed by four other Republicans, specifically mentioned Abedin, accusing her late father of having ties to the Brotherhood.

Boehner declined to entertain a reporter’s question about whether he would toss Bachmann off the Intelligence Committee, where she’s privy to highly classified information. Behind the scenes, leadership aides said they were shaken by the comments from someone as prominent as Bachmann.

My guess is that Michelle knows the truth in this matter.

Hey, Boehner, how about finding out everything you don't know about her before you speak or act?!

How stupid is this man?!

The likes of this is probably a main reason she and her family finalized the dual citizenship in (I think) Switzerland.

Someone in her position knows full well the U.S. is collapsing financially, economically, culturally, and politically, and the GOP bosses are seeing to it that there’s no resistance.

At least Michelle remains true to herself; true to her country.

These people expect our sons to enlist and risk their lives in combat, while our representatives endanger our sons' lives by practicing political correctness, just so they can feel comfortable at their Washington cocktail parties?

Below is the letter that Bachmann and co. sent to the State Department. There is no mention of Huma in the letter. Where are getting all this?

So ask yourself this...who first raised her name as having been mentioned?

The republican attackers either cannot read or just want to take advantage of this opportunity to damage another conservative.

Why is it that republicans are always ready to do the democrats dirty work for them?

Quit giving the GOP a pass by calling them stupid or gutless, they’re traitorous. Stuff like this just exposes that fact. Heck, even TEA Party candidates voted for NDAA and NDRP.

Because Democrats aren’t the opposition to the Republican establishment; conservatives are.

Oh, my!
Ellison-Letter-7-12-12In your letters, you allege that: Snip... The mother, brother and deceased father of Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State 1-lillary Clinton, are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, and that she, too, by extension, may be working on the organization’s behalf; Is Mr. Ellison bearing false witness?

Be sure and read that "2)" on page 4.
I would copy and paste that as well if I could find a source that allowed me to do so.

Harsh words but a necessary read by all the RHINOs. I go back to the days when Ike castigated McCarthy because McCarthy openly and bravely opened the public eyes to the likes of communism entrenched in the USA government. McCarthy was proven very much in the right and Ike stood by his actions because he was all wise and powerful. Move forward in time to now when Muslims are openly seeding an anti Constitutional social structure as were the communists in McCarthy’s time. That there are Republicans who are turning away from records showing Muslim infiltration in USA government shows that not much has changed as to Republicans castigating true supporters of our Constitution.

Yup, they sure do.  These freaks who tentatively represent conservative America have nothing but contempt for conservatives.  I fricken hate these gutless frauds.

Go to hell Boner.  Go to hell john McShame.  Shame on you, you gutless frauds.  Pack your sh** and get the hell out of my country.

You see this, this is the enemy undermining our nation:

Exactly.

There is no greater threat to the political and economic freedom of the American Citizen than the apparatchiks in Washington DC and their propagandists on both sides .

I am especially irked by the likes of Hannity and Limbaugh, who are now openly cheer leading for the the con man and liar Myth Romney.

Hannity is a mouthpiece for the Washingtonian RNC country club blue bloods and their greedy pulled back wives.

He lucked out by riding Limbaugh's coattails on the radio, and by getting a show on Fox with Alan Colmes that was actually pretty good.

Well Colmes is gone, and the "Hannity" show is a retard fest with all of the football throwing and RNC degenerates polluting the airwaves.

His radio show is a complete waste of time too, you would have to be a low grade moron to listen to the 7 minutes of show every half hour interspersed with dozens of commercials for ridiculous products and services that apparently are effective at getting his cretin listeners to part with their hard earned cash.

Of course he wouldn't touch DADT, it's all about the dollar with this guy, and he wouldn't want to risk offending the faggots that might cost him a couple of pieces of silver here and there down the road.

I particularly am embarrassed when he pulls his daily, "let's put on the barely articulate black guy and talk about how I fell off a scaffold (drunk?) and used to hang drywall and used to be poor, and you can be a multimillionaire too just by working hard and voting for Republicans like MYTH ROMNEY".

The best is when he makes pretend there is a phone problem and hangs up on somebody who is eating his lunch and goes to yet another commercial for some useles preposterous product only an imbecile would buy.

Follow the rainbow, the Irish leprechaun's pot of gold at the end would be in possession of Fawn Vanity.

I second that. All MB and that paltry few other brave Congressmen were asking was for an investigation or how she got security clearance? I suspect security clearances went out of fashion with Pres. Clinton. Do you really think that there is one person in the Obama administration that has a security clearance? Or could pass one?

First Gov.Palin is absent from the list of GOP convention speakers.

Now Rep. Bachmann is getting sliced and diced.

The Romney/Texas/Globalist/New World Order Mafia that bankrolled their candidate is taking no chances, no prisoners, no tea party common sense conservative Constitutional presence on the convention floor.

My advice : Burn the house down, and make this convention nomination a revolt - an open season on RINO's !!!
