    :lol: Despite repeatedly voicing concerns about Arizona's new immigration enforcement law in recent weeks and threatening to challenge it, Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday he has not yet read the law -- which is only 10 pages long.
    "I have not had a chance to -- I've glanced at it," Holder said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing when asked had he read the state law cracking down on illegal immigrants. :cuckoo:

    The law is almost verbatim the same as the federal law. If he sues he is saying the federal law is what ever he accuses the Arizona law of being.

    It's ten pages. If he has time to "glance at it", he has time to read it.

    Well, Democrat SOP is to vote for things that they don't bother to read. I think this almost counts as a step forward.

    If Holder hasn't proven before he is an incompetent ass (which he has done from birth), he has now!

    There is nothing different--it's just that Arizona is enforcing current Federal Law--because the Federal Government has not lived up to their obligation to secure the border.

    Un-freaking-believable. :eek:

    I mean, we've seen every kind of partisan hackery imaginable from this administration... and we should be well past the shock value of it all. But sometimes they're just so incredibly brazen that it still manages to be utterly jaw-dropping. :eek:

    They've worked people up over this bill to the point where little girls are missing their basketball championships because of it, conventions are being canceled in two states, and hispanic people are afraid to get ice cream... and all for the sake of political pandering.
    They haven't even read the fucking bill.

    In the grand scheme of things though... I guess threatening to take legal action over a state bill you haven't bothered to read, isn't as bad as MAKING federal law that.... you haven't bothered to read.

    Not reading bills is a habit of this administration and congress--so nothing new here.

    Our inept Aturnie Genral, Eric Holder plans to sue Arizona saying that their new law is un-constitutional. Eric admits that he has not read the bill that became the Arizona law.

    Eric Holder is an idiot.
