Cantor Declines to Criticize Bachmann Over Abedin Charges

Source: NYT

By JENNIFER STEINHAUER


Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the House majority leader, broke with other prominent Republicans and declined on Friday to criticize Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and other House Republicans who have accused a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodman Clinton of having links to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Ms. Bachmann and four other lawmakers last month sent a letter to the State Department charging that Huma Abedin, a deputy chief of staff in the State Department and a long-time aide to Ms. Clinton, may be a part of a group of Muslims with ties to terrorist organizations alleged to have infiltrated the federal government. Ms. Abedin is the wife of former Representative Anthony Weiner of New York.

Last week, Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, made the unusual step of taking the Senate floor to condemn the accusation as “an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable woman, a dedicated American and a loyal public servant.”

In an interview Friday morning on CBS’ “This Morning“, one that focused largely on Mr. Cantor’s opinions about Mitt Romney and the presidential campaign, the majority leader was asked by host Charlie Rose about his views and religious tolerances. Mr. Rose brought up Ms. Bachmann’s accusations, asking Mr. Cantor if they were “out of line.” Mr. Cantor said he believed “her concern was about the security of the country.”

10. His father had

a wet dream and his mother rolled into it. Not to say anything bad about Eric, but his mother threw away the baby and kept the afterbirth. And one more thing: Eric Cantor is anal leakage.

14. Cantor a RESULT of

tabulation might be closer

FACT: The optical voting machines that do the counting in Wisconsin are actually configured and from Dominion Voting Systems distributors Command Central LLC, which has an office in Waite Park, Minnesota. Specifically, the office address is 110 2nd Street S, Suite 232; Waite Park, MN 56387. What’s very interesting is that Tea Party Queen Michelle Bachmann’s office lists 110 2nd Street S, Suite 232; Waite Park, MN 56387 on her web site. Dominion Voting Systems acquired Premier Election Solutions, Election Systems & Software (ES&S), Diebold and Sequoia Voting Systems.

12. He's being chased by Powell

And he's running scared. He's supporting Crazies like Bachmann because his district has a sizable population of paranoid fools who believe her, and Cantor doesn't feel he can win without their votes.
