    Top Republicans denounce attack on Clinton aide

    Top Republicans denounce attack on Clinton aide - Yahoo! News

    The top Republican in the Congress on Thursday criticized Representative Michele Bachmann and four other fellow House Republicans for making "pretty dangerous" accusations when they questioned the security clearance of a Muslim aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    The comments of House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner came after Senator John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, blasted the five lawmakers for seeking an investigation into whether Huma Abedin, Clinton's deputy chief of staff, had connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist political organization.
    Boehner, speaking at a regular news briefing, said "accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous." He said he did not know Abedin, but "from everything I know of her, she has a sterling character."
    McCain took to the Senate floor on Wednesday to accuse the lawmakers of making a "sinister" attack on Abedin. Following the custom in Congress, he did not name them but left no doubt he was talking about Bachmann, as well as Representatives Louie Gohmert, Trent Franks, Thomas Rooney and Lynn Westmoreland.
    While I'm glad that mainstream Republicans are denouncing this ridiculous attack on American Muslims, I have to wonder why rabid right wing partisans have such an axe to grind with Muslims. They constantly point out that Obama's father is a Muslim. They try to stop Muslims from building mosques in New York. They even attack Muslims serving in our own congress. Xenophobic attitudes like this need to be exposed as being wrong.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Oh well, can't say I agree with them attacking this person without probable cause, but well, I will still vote for Louie Gohmert come november because there is absolutely no way I will vote for a socialist entitlement monger who will stay with party lines and not help fix America and get rid of Comrade Obama. He may not be perfect and it may be time for him to go, but not this cycle, no way. I might would go for the Libertarian that is also running, but can't find a whole lot about his stance or even who he really is, not to mention that as far as I can tell, his name is in but he is not really doing any campaigning, so he really stands no chance and I simply cannot risk sending an Obama loving Liberal to Congress at this time.

    This lady is crazy. I expect it's just a pathetic attempt to associate Obama with terrorist.

    Kind of like the crazies around here who call him Hussien among other things. Insanity never shows much reason.

    Here is the letter she sent. WOW!: http://bachmann.house.gov/uploadedfi...p._ellison.pdf

    Ghomert is one of the biggest retards in Congress. This is the guy who attributed the Bat Man massacre to attacks on "our Judeo-Christian values".
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I would normally agree. However, this election is not about that, it is about Obama and the Constitution. Due to Obama's unconstitutional actions and Congress not being able (Reps) or willing (Dems) to hold him accountable for those actions, other factors no longer matter. (lets face it, short of him committing murder in public or declaring himself a dictator, you will not get a Democrat in either house to vote for impeachment ( and 99 out of 100 wouldn't do it even then), no matter how unconstitutional he becomes) Because this election is a vote on whether the Constitution is Dead and gone or whether it should still remain in effect, I have to go with anyone, and I mean almost anyone who will work to impeach the unconstitutional bastard if he wins the general election. Saving the Constitution is the only issue I give a damn about this election, everything else can be worked on later if we actually manage to save it. And I have absolutely no faith that any liberals or others on the left are going to give a damn about constitutionality of his actions, all they care about is whether they get what the want, no matter the method.

    Bachmann should be censured.

    What does this have to do with the OP?

    Nothing, just rabid anti Obama far right rhetoric.

    If he really means it, he should move to censure. And that's exactly what he should do. There's a fringe of the Republican Party that's just plain nutz.

    Which unconstitutional actions do you perceive him as taking? Be sure to specify which article of the constitution has been violated.
