House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) desperately wants John Boehner’s job as Speaker of the House. He is pure ambition, with no concern for truth, fairness, or decency. To further his ambition, he’s all too happy to coddle the many crazy members of his caucus, like Michele Bachmann.
Boehner criticized Bachmann’s absurd accusations that Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin is secretly working for the Muslim Brotherhood, calling those accusations “pretty dangerous” and saying that Abedin “has a sterling character.”
But Cantor? Asked by Charlie Rose what he thought about the Bachmann/Abedin shamefulness, Cantor took the coward’s way out, choosing popularity over patriotism, saying, “I think that her concern was about the security of the country.”
Cantor is unfit ever to be Speaker of the House, he shouldn’t be Majority Leader, and he shouldn’t even be a congressman.
Michele Bachmann’s bizarre claims that Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s top aide, is an agent for the Muslim Brotherhood are hurting her in her home district.
Jim Graves, who is running against Bachmann for Congress, said that even Republicans in the district are turning against her: “A lot of Republicans say, ‘This is the straw that broke the camel’s back. We just can’t afford to have this uncertainty and fear mongering and McCarthyism.'”
Uh-oh, he’s talking about camels? I’m sure Bachmann will take that as a sign that he must be working for the Muslim Brotherhood too.
John McCain’s defense of Huma Abedin has caused Glenn Beck (yes, he’s still alive) to claim that McCain must be in cahoots with the Muslim Brotherhood too. What, he was brainwashed by the North Vietnamese to become an Islamist?
Ed Rollins, who ran Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign, has called her out for her ridiculous and shameful attack on Huma Abedin, claiming that Abedin is a secret agent for the Muslim Brotherhood. Rollins has demanded that Bachmann apologize:
“You should stand on the floor of the House and apologize to Huma Abedin and to Secretary Clinton and to the millions of hardworking, loyal, Muslim Americans for your wild and unsubstantiated charges.”
Don’t hold your breath, Ed.
Bachmann (R – Batshitland) has responded: “I will not be silent as this administration appeases our enemies instead of telling the truth about the threats our country faces.”
Someone needs to tell the truth about the threat our country faces from people like Bachmann.
