    Four separate threads sharing the Liberal view of Michelle Bachmann!

    Must be true....I guess....

    until I read Coulter's expose of the Liberal view of John Ashcroft, you know, as the “the worst attorney-general in history.”

    Check it out, then see how much confidence one can put in the Libeal viewpoint:

    No discussion of the Liberal mind would be complete without a review of the reaction of same to two Attorneys-General, Janet Reno, and John Ashcroft. Nothing could be more enlightening as an example of cognitive dissonance. Should Liberals' judgment about events, or individuals be afforded any cache?

    First, what did Liberals think of John Ashcroft?
    1. The NYTime’s Paul Krugman called him “the worst attorney-general in history.” Times Higher Education - Gloves off for 'thinking man's Michael Moore'

    2. More charitable was Anthony Romero, of the ACLU, who merely pronounced that he “will turn out to be one of the worst attorney generals in American history.” NPR, Liane Hansen Weekend Edition, November 14, 2004.

    3. Rutgers University law professor Frank Askin: he was “the worst attorney general in my memory,” and “There’s nothing good I can say about him. I’m glad he’s gone.’ AP, “NJ Muslims, Libertarians Glad To See Ashcroft Go,” November 10, 2004.

    4. The Nation called him a ‘fascist.’ Nation Topics - John Ashcroft | The Nation

    5. “People for the American Way compared him to the "virulent segregationists" of the Jim Crow South. Handgun Control Inc. likened his views to those of "convicted mass-murderer Timothy McVeigh." The Los Angeles Times depicted him in a cartoon as a Klansman, complete with white robe and hood.” Boston.com / News / Boston Globe / Opinion / Op-ed / We owe Ashcroft thanks

    Now, how about an objective view of the Attorney-General that Ashcroft succeeded.

    1. Attorney General Reno’s military-style attack on a religious sect in Waco, Texas led to the greatest number of US civilians ever killed by the government in the history of the United States. Clearly, Reno felt that the presence of a weird cult rose to the level of a threat to the domestic tranquility of the nation. Kent State, 4 killed; Haymarket prosecutions, 4 executed; Three Mile Island, zero.

    a. American Civilians killed: Ashcroft, zero; Reno, 80.

    2. While Dade County state attorney, Reno persecuted the most decorated police officer in the history of South Miami PD with a totally fabricated “repressed memory child molestation” conviction. He served 12 years before the Supreme Court threw it out.

    a. Innocent people imprisoned not just for crime they didn’t commit, but for crime that never happened: Ashcroft, zero; Reno…at least one.

    3. “On Aug. 19, 1991, rabbinical student Yankel Rosenbaum was stabbed to death in Crown Heights by a black racist mob shouting "Kill the Jew!" as retaliation for another Hasidic man killing a black child in a car accident hours earlier.

    In a far clearer case of jury nullification than the first Rodney King verdict, a jury composed of nine blacks and three Puerto Ricans acquitted Lemrick Nelson Jr. of the murder -- despite the fact that the police found the bloody murder weapon in his pocket and Rosenbaum's blood on his clothes, and that Rosenbaum, as he lay dying, had identified Nelson as his assailant…. It took two years from Nelson's acquittal to get Reno to bring a civil rights case against him.” Montana News Association [from Coulter, “Demonic”]

    a. Number of obvious civil rights violations ignored: Ashcroft, zero; Reno,…at least one.

    4. Reno presided over the leak of Richard Jewell’s name as the bomber in the Atlanta Olympic park bombing in 1996. She later apologized. Reno Apologizes for FBI Leak; Jewell Still to Sue, Lawyer Says - Los Angeles Times

    a. Number of Americans falsely accused of committing heinous crimes: Ashcroft, zero; Reno, one.

    5. Rather than allow a judge to decide, Reno ordered a predawn armed raid to seize Elian Gonzalez. The Gonzalez family had committed no crime, was in violation of no court order. [CTRL] JACKBOOT JANET STOMPS NBC NEWS CREW WHILE MAJOR MEDIA

    a. Number of six-year-old boys seized at gunpoint and deported to communist dictatorships: Ashcroft, zero; Reno, one.

    Well, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, what say you about the judgment of liberals??? Incapacity to reason? Complete lack of critical discernment? Absence of assessment?

    So....perhaps Bachmann's not the Devil incarnate.....Hmmmmm.

    Doesn't really say anything about Bachmann. It's just a distraction post, filled with irrelevancies. The one about BDs is especially egregious, as it apparently says it's alright to gun down officers serving a search warrant. How about asking your local police what they'd do in that situation? Certainly not wait weeks for a peaceful resolution. They'd be breaking your door down the same day. When you're morally bankrupt, even cold blooded murder is OK, if it fits your political bias, apparently!!!

    Clean off those specs, Citi...

    ...here, let me set you on the correct path...it reveals the aptitude of the Left-wing attack dogs, doesn't speak to the rectitude of Ms. Bachmann.


    Questions whether one should rely on the viewpoint of the Left...

    Get it now?

    No...but ti DOES say a lot about those that are saying things about Bachman.

    Seems to me you prefer to knock the messenger as opposed to understand the reasdon for the post.

    Thus why so many people live in a fog with very little understanding of what is happening around them.

    So you're saying it's alright to gun down police officers, Mumia?
