Bachmann calls for Eric Holder’s resignation over Wikileaks

“The time has come for Eric Holder to step down as Attorney General of the United States,” Rep. Michele Bachmann wrote Thursday, expressing concern over the release of thousands of American diplomatic cables by Wikileaks earlier this week. “As a member of Congress and a mother of five children, I am concerned about the very real threats facing our country.”

Bachmann wrote in a post at RedState that in addition to what she sees as inaction by Holder over the Wikileaks disclosures, she also disagrees with Holder’s policies on granting suspected terrorists Miranda rights and trying them on American soil. “Holder’s use of civilian trials for terror suspects proved to be a failure last month when a civilian jury acquitted a man on 284 of 285 counts,” she wrote.

That man’s conviction on one count of conspiracy could get him a prison sentence of 20 years to life.

Two weeks ago, Gov. Tim Pawlenty suggested that Holder should resign based on similar reasoning.

Bachmann also listed other problems she has with Holder “like his outspoken criticism of Arizona’s immigration law.”

Every time I see that insanely smiling face it makes me shudder at how very very stupid we Americans are getting to be.
Anyone who accepts this reality-challenged person’s view of the world deserves what they get….
Oh we already got it. Tax breaks for rich, health care for the rich, all economic policies in favor of the rich. Boy I’m glad I don’t worry about all that and let this strident screamer tell me what’s important. Woo hoo EVIL Wikileaks showing us what our leaders are doing! Boy, now there’s a crime.
