One of Eric Holder’s “acting stupidly” moments: Holder admits he HASN’T read the AZ law.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who has been critical of Arizona’s new immigration law, said Thursday he hasn’t yet read the law and is going by what he’s read in newspapers or seen on television.

It’s been almost a month since the law was signed.  The law is less than 20 pages.   The law backs up existing federal law in the Alien Registration Act in 1940.  Eric Holder admits he hasn’t read the AZ law.  He is going by what he has read or what he watches?   Are you F%^&*ing kidding me?

Yet he can flap his gums and make predictions into the future of what might happen, a modern day civil rights Nostradamus?  Or just another Obama flunkee?  Maybe Holder has dyslexia and can’t read?  Is he blind?  Can’t he have one of his staffers read the law to him?

Maybe Holder is not tech savvy like Obama and can’t find it on the internets?   Well here is a link.  Watch out, all less than 20 pages might overload your computer thingy.

“I’ve just expressed concerns on the basis of what I’ve heard about the law. But I’m not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with people are doing the review, exactly what my position is,” Mr. Holder told the House Judiciary Committee.

So the president flaps his gums as well as his attorney general and they have not read the law?  How long does it take for your staff to review less than 20 pages?   Geez, the legal eagles in CONgress can whip out THOUSANDS of pages of sausage in mere days, let alone, READ less than 20 pages.

Jake Tapper recently schooled Holder, exposing him on his idiocy of forming opinions on what “could” happen, and not about the legality.   When Tapper confronts the ever prepared AG, Holder even admits the law is not racist.  Repeat, Holder admits the law is NOT racist.  But don’t let that stop the administration.  The constitution is just an impediment and living documents can be changed to suit the situation.

Holder is worried about “perception”.  Perception?  Gee Holder, didn’t think you worried about perception when wanting to try terrorists in NYC?

TAPPER:  You’ve said we’re a nation of cowards because we don’t talk
freely and openly about race.  So in that spirit, let me give it a
shot.  Do you think the Arizona immigration law is racist?

HOLDER:  Well, I don’t think it’s necessarily a good idea.  I mean,
I think we have to understand that the immigration problem that we have,
illegal immigration problem that we have, is a national one, and a
state-by-state solution to it is not the way in which we ought to go.

TAPPER:  But your issue with it is not that it’s state-by-state.
Your issue with it is that there are concerns that there might be racial
profiling that takes place, right?

HOLDER:  That is certainly one of the concerns that you have, that
you’ll end up in a situation where people are racially profiled, and
that could lead to a wedge drawn between certain communities and law
enforcement, which leads to the problem of people in those communities
not willing to interact with people in law enforcement, not willing to
share information, not willing to be witnesses where law enforcement
needs them.  I think you have to think about the collateral consequences
of such a law, understanding the frustration that people feel in
Arizona.  IT’s one of the reasons why I think we have to have a national
solution to this immigration problem.

TAPPER:  Do you think it’s racist?

HOLDER:  I don’t think it’s racist in its motivation.  But I think
the concern I have is how it will be perceived and how it perhaps could
be enacted, how it could be carried out.  I think we could potentially
get on a slippery slope where people will be picked on because of how
they look as opposed to what they have done, and that is I think
something that we have to try to avoid at all costs.

Holder says it shouldn’t be up to the states and that illegal immigration is a national one.   DING! He gets one right!

Holder thinks “we have to have a national solution to the immigration problem”   Freaking brilliant?  Guess what?  We already DO!  It is just not enforced.  Secondly, AZ law is rooted in the National law.

Look at how our top legal mind uses   “Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda, slippery slope” in the above exchange.

Oh yeah, did I mention Holder admitted he has not read the sub 20 page law yet?
