Tea Party Rep. Gohmert Shares Wild New Conspiracy Theory


Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert has a wild new conspiracy theory about President Obama, and even by his unhinged standards, it’s pretty far out there.

During an appearance on fellow right-wing loon Frank Gaffney’s radio show, Gohmert claimed that the Obama administration helped to depose Moammar Gadhafi “so that al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood could take over Libya.”

Audio of Gohmert’s bizzare rant is below, courtesy of Think Progress:

“This administration really embraced blowing out Mubarak — yes, do it up by all means — getting rid of Qaddafi, it wasn’t enough to send verbal accolades,” Gohmert said. “This administration sent planes and bombs and support to oust Qaddafi so that al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood could take over Libya.”

No explanation, however, of how killing Osama bin Laden and dozens of his top lieutenants fits into Obama’s master plan to elevate al Qaeda into power.

This is not Gohmert’s first deranged conspiracy theory with regards to national security. In July, Gohmert joined Michele Bachmann and three other Republican congresspeople in a bizzare campaign demanding an investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood’s “deep penetration” into the federal government. After Senator John McCain publicly defended Hillary Clinton’s deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin, whom Bachmann had singled out, Gohmert memorably referred to the senator as “numbnuts.

Additionally, Gohmert once warned that “terror babies” represented a grave threat to national security, leading to this heated confrontation with CNN’s Anderson Cooper:

Despite his strange theories and behavior, Gohmert seems likely to stick around Congress for a while; in 2012, he won re-election in Texas’ 1st congressional district with 72 percent of the vote.

  2. docb November 29, 2012

    The guy is the Poster boy for IGNORANT TEXAN! Where do repubs get these guys like Walsh, West, Gohmer, Bachman, Blackburn, Kyl, Mccain, et al!

    Flat out crazy!

      removed by me.

    2. BDD1951 November 30, 2012

      We have a lot of crazies here in Texas. I keep wonders what district he represents. Probably Bush’s district.

      1. docb November 30, 2012

        1st District …Tyler, Nachadochaos?..etc bordering Louisiana! Rural and hillbilly country! Great music and oil wells in the middle of the Street!

        1. BDD1951 December 1, 2012

          I was born and raised in Palestine. Hoping to move back soon. I live between Houston and Corpus Christi.

          1. Allan Richardson March 26, 2013

            Ann Richards, the late former Democratic governor of Texas, once made the brilliant observation that Texas was “the national laboratory for BAD government ideas.” Gohmert et al are vindicating her legacy!

      2. AliciaSolis November 30, 2012

        This clown represents a district where Longview,Texas is located…

      3. Butch Croan December 6, 2012

        Probably a racist rural area in south West or South Texas.

    3. Dominick Vila November 30, 2012

      The most fascinating part of Gohmert’s statement, for people capable of rational thinking, is that he is voicing support for Qadaffi, the man responsible for the downing of a Pan Am plane and the death of over 200 Americans, to demonize the Muslim Brotherhood. Is this idiot aware of the fact that Egyptian President Morsy, a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood, negotiated the recent peace agreement between Israel and Hamas? That his contribution was recognized by none other than Israeli President Shimon Peres and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, in addition to several other world leaders? The Tea Party, and the intellectually deprived crowd that listen to their rhetoric, is not only out of touch with world events and what is best for the USA and the world, they go as far as siding with terrorists that have harmed Americans and undermined our interests to score a few political points. Shame on them, and shame on those whose hatred and intolerance are so great they prefer to side with our enemies if that is what it takes to demonize a man they hate.

      1. Dave_dido November 30, 2012

        Shame on the people who voted for him.It’s guys like him who have made Congress ineffectual. How do you compromise with an idiot like this? Texans, do you realize how much you are screwing up the country by sending goofballs like Gohmert to Washington? C’mon, we know you can do better.

      2. docb November 30, 2012

        Sad but true, Dom! But few know or remember the history! Thanks for outlining it for us.

        Additionally, I am not sure it is just hate re: President Obama….I think it is GUT ABJECT FEAR..He is succeeding and they are shown to be failures and anti-American!

    4. Butch Croan December 6, 2012

      You can thank the Tea Party. Did you see who we just elected as a Senator to replace Kay Bailey whom I disliked, but I really didn’t think they could elect someone as equally ignorant as our other Senator, but we did. Our other Senator was linked in the past to the famous bag man jack Abrahamoff.

      1. docb December 7, 2012

        In Texas, as I remember…you get almost what you pay for!

  4. ryueire November 29, 2012

    He belittles himself. Shut the fuck up, Gohmert, you little ignorant racist pig. Texas Repubs should be ashamed this idiot holds office. Waste of space.

    1. BDD1951 November 30, 2012

      I looked up what district he represents. He represents the district that my sister lives in. She probably voted for him. That is the district around Tyler in East TX. I guess she and I get the nuts. Until the first of the year, Ron Paul is my rep. He never did a thing for us and yet he won by a majority every time.

  5. Bobby C Wright November 29, 2012

    Proof that we need to vote all members of the Tea Party out of Congress so America can once again move forward. Even Linsey Graham of S.C. now working on an amendment to take a rights to a trail before being locked up. Radical obstructionist don’t belong in the United States Congress.

  6. charleo1 November 29, 2012

    Loony Louie, the best walking talking Republican endorsement for the Democratic Party!

  7. old_blu November 29, 2012

    I sure hope they take this ignorant butt with them when they sequester, then I will be even happier to see them go.

  8. elw November 29, 2012

    Is this man fit to be a House Representative? NO!

  9. Sa Janes November 29, 2012

    I suppose we actually NEED knuckle-dragging, hate-mongering imbeciles like Gohmert in congress to use as a measuring stick in determining how many knuckle-dragging, hate-mongering imbeciles there are in this country–to serve as a wake-up call.

  10. Lynda November 29, 2012

    Lunacy pure and simple. I blame the citizens who voted for this cretin and put him back for another term. Certainly they must have been aware of how dangerous and insane this man’s constant comments have been, so I put the onus upon them. Just why so many people vote for men like this fellow is beyond me.

    1. BDD1951 November 30, 2012

      All candidates need to do is run on the Republican label and their in here in TX. We’re working hard to turn the state blue, but it’ll 8 or 12 years yet.

    2. Michael Kollmorgen November 30, 2012

      He is tapping into a deep hatred for people that white and far-right conservative people have and using that as leverage to get elected.

      He don’t scare me, but the people who vote for a creep like this does.

  11. bpai99 November 30, 2012

    I could listen to this guy all day, he’s hysterically funny.

  12. billbear1961 November 30, 2012

    Just shun these jerks!

    Stop giving the fools so much attention.

    1. Del WS January 11, 2013

      Better the enemy out in the open than the one working out of sight.

  13. dellmartin November 30, 2012

    I find this unbelievable. I know some very smart Texans, but the people who vote this imposter of a human being into office must have a screw loose too. He appears to be totally deranged. Seriously.

    1. BDD1951 November 30, 2012

      I’ll tell my sister that. You’re right.

    2. Joseph Stans December 18, 2012

      Yep. In any given population there are always a few at the extreme ends of the normal distribution curve. My advice would be to leave as soon as possible, much as you would if there were an epidemic of disease.

    3. robertbenefiel@att.net November 22, 2013

      This Congressman needs to be on medication. He could be featured on swamp people.

  14. Jim Lou November 30, 2012

    Gohmert is not unusual. Look at what is happening in Texas, starting with the Governor.

    1. Jim Myers November 30, 2012


  15. Dominick Vila November 30, 2012

    Does this mean this idiot supported Qadaffi, the man responsible for the downing of a Pan Am plane over Lockerbie? Nice of him to acknowledge he is a traitor. What are we going to hear next, condemnation of the premature death of Osama bin Laden?

  16. foolsdance November 30, 2012

    How in the world to these psycho freaks keep getting elected???

    1. dtgraham November 30, 2012

      In large parts of the nation you just have to be a Republican to get elected, and check mtooey’s rhetorical question for how you get nominated in the first place.

    2. karinursula November 30, 2012

      good question

    3. BDC_57 November 30, 2012

      Cause the tea baggers got them in.

    4. Joseph Stans December 18, 2012

      On a positive note it is the ignorant lunatics like Gohmert and the folks that elect them serve as cultural warnings about the dangers of the low-information voter. It’s good to have district like TX-1 and MN-6 (Bachmann) to serve as examples of what can happen when they gather in one place. WE can watch for infestations of ignorance in other states and alert the CDC.

  18. holtjp November 30, 2012

    Divisive, hate spewing politicians are nothing new for America. The really tragic fact is that such a large slice of our electorate never seems to be able to progress beyond the point of 5th Grade reasoning and decision making. I am not sure if it is a sign of failing schools, the Rush Limbaugh effect, or a combination of both.

    1. njguy54 November 30, 2012

      Gohmert’s case should serve as an example to Dems and liberals of the need to be active in state and local elections as well as national campaigns. Re-electing Obama was all well and good… but Democrats need to get those same voters to the polls in two years, when there will be no presidential campaign. Otherwise, the Tea Partiers will seize the day like they did in 2010.

      1. holtjp December 1, 2012

        You make an excellent point. While basking in the glow of the Democratic success in the national election it is easy to forget the strength of the far right in so many state and local governments.

      2. Del WS January 11, 2013

        You’re absolutely correct. The Republican party has already figured out the wisdom in stocking Congress, governorships, state offices, and yes, even local positions with members of their party. I hope Democrats are taking note and will follow suit.

        1. Allan Richardson March 26, 2013

          Taken over the country as a whole, Democratic candidates for the House and Senate got more votes than Republican candidates in 2012 by about the same margin as Obama’s popular vote victory. The Senate now has a Democratic majority, although not a filibuster-proof majority. The House lost some Republican seats, but not enough. Why? Because Republicans who picked up state legislatures and governorships in 2010 (a census year, and a year in which voter turnout was lower) decided to gerrymander Congressional districts to guarantee the House majority.

          Democratic leadership has already started the process of activating for the 2014 elections. The most daunting obstacle to Democrats is the rash of voter suppression laws coming out of gerrymandered statehouses.

  19. mtooey November 30, 2012

    Is insanity a prerequisit for becoming a Repub politician?

    1. Michael Kollmorgen November 30, 2012

      It’s not only a prerequisit but a public mandate who elect them. Then, what does that make of the people who elect these nitwits? Not very much.

  20. braytjr November 30, 2012

    This guy is from Pittsburg, Texas.

    He is an embarrassment to the good folks of Northeast Texas.

    1. sn77339 November 30, 2012

      I think Texas should cede everything East of US 59 and North of I10 to Louisiana. The rest of the state might have a fighting chance to be normal then, although we might also have to give the Panhandle to Oklahoma to finish the job.

  21. Regina M November 30, 2012

    The only reason all these wild conspiracies are coming up is that WE do not know the truth about anything in this Obama administration! He keeps a tight seal on his past records and his true agenda as president. Who can be sure what he says is what he does? NO more taxes? LIE! TRANSPARENCY..LIE!
    Lets not blame this on either party because there is NO proof one way or another what the hell is going on! The Repubs come up with ideas and the dems mock them as dumb. Where is the prood either way? Can any of this be proven or refuted? NO! is the correct answer.
    Just as with the Benghazi attack. Has anyone in the administration come up with a truthful or even believable response to what actually happened? What idiot would believe a stupid film fueled a vicious and brutal attack on our consulate? If this were true, this would give all of us an idea how ignorant, brutal and savage the Islams are, so what is Obama doing playing around with them? Why hasnt he responded as a true leader of a strong and free nation? Why isnt he acting like a president instead of an undercover agent for the muslim brotherhood?

    1. johninPCFL November 30, 2012

      Maybe you forgot about the riots, killings and fatwah that were issued after some cartoons were published in a Danish paper? How about the riots and fatwah issued for Salman Rushdie after he published a book? Do you really think a film would elicit less reaction?

      Yes, all college records are sealed. Where are Romney’s? He never released them. Where are his tax records showing the decade where he paid no income taxes ata ll and then took advantage of the tax repatriation act to bring the money home?

      Trickle down has been run as the tax law of the land since the 1980s. In that time, the wealthy have accumulated 90% of all of the wealth in the country. What has been proven beyond any doubt is that the wealthy can buy elections, then buy policies to suit themselves, then take advantage of those policies. The average Congressman is now a multimillionaire. Their allegiance has shifted to the plutocrats.

    2. karinursula November 30, 2012

      Have you lost all your marbles???? You sound just like an nutcase, my President is acting like an President.

    3. Dave_dido November 30, 2012

      You’ve been watching too much Fox News, Regina. And please don’t tell me about the” mainstream media”- they may not get it right all the time, but they do a helluva lot better job than Fox. Remember how Fox told you that Romney would win the election? That alone should tell you all you need to know about Fox vs. “mainstream media” as regards truthtelling. If you would watch more” mainstream media”, you might come to realize that President Obama is an intelligent, patriotic American who is doing everything he can to help the country. If you can’t believe that then, by all means, enjoy your paranoia.

      1. BDC_57 November 30, 2012

        Well said.

    Michele Bachmann thers the true meaning to the word numbnuts

  24. jebediah123 November 30, 2012

    What the hell are they drinking down there in Texas?? Whatever it is, it sure produces alot of nut cases. I’m all for a national referendum to vote Texas out of the Union.

    1. Dave_dido November 30, 2012

      Let them secede. Who needs them? Maybe Mexico would be willing to take back what is rightfully theirs.

      1. Michael Kollmorgen December 1, 2012

        If Texas IS that nutty, maybe Mexico wouldn’t even want them………..

        1. Del WS January 11, 2013

          Let’s go back even further. Wasn’t Spain the original owner? Let’s give Texas back to Spain and then make everyone from Texas need a passport to get into the rest of the States!

          1. Kent January 15, 2013

            And what gives you the illusion that Spain and the European Union would want to have those ignorant Texas rednecks in their ranks?

  25. howa4x November 30, 2012

    Here is a conspiricy theory: the republicans hijacked the christian religion and turned the worship of Jesus into the worship of money. They secretly hold meetings around a fire and in the middle is a golden calf
    How’s that one??

    1. dtgraham November 30, 2012

      OK, now you’re on to something.

    2. Allan Richardson March 26, 2013

      I doubt if that is LITERALLY true, but it does seem to capture the (evil) spirit of that kind of “Christianity” quite accurately. It reminds me of Dostoevsky’s dream vision of Christ and the Inquisitor. For those who have not read it, Jesus comes back to earth and is arrested by the Inquisition. The chief Inquisitor, knowing full well that this is the man he is supposedly worshiping, argues with Christ that when He rejected the temptation to worship Satan and tap into the money and power structure of the world, it was a mistake. But the Church “corrected” that “mistake” and was able to convert more souls than Christ and his early apostles had done. As we know, Dostoevsky was writing within the Russian Orthodox Church, which is separate from but not too dissimilar from the Roman Catholic Church, especially in his day.

  26. donbronkema1 November 30, 2012

    Before 1961, Gohmert might have been certifiable!…today, political paranoia reflects the terror of moral ‘bouleversement’–as per gays, morning-after pill, rising atheism, proof of evolution, internet porn, alien values in globalizing media, secularization in the ranks of evangelicals, loss of nat’l pre-eminence, etc…now imagine the effects, at no great remove, of gun control, right-to-die, neural implants, decriminalization of drugs & sexwork–even 3D printing!

  27. Mike Tierney November 30, 2012

    Actually, killing bin Laden was part of the conspiracy. The “real” al Qaeda guys needed him out of the way because he opposed the collaboration with Obama. And bin Laden has Obama’s real birth certificate from Kenya in his personal papers.
    This stuff is all so simple and clear. What is wrong with our media that they don’t see the connections? Gohmert/Bachmnn in 2016!!!!
    Or maybe by 2016 Texas will have seceded and they can run for President of that world.

    1. Michael Kollmorgen November 30, 2012

      Texas and Arizona both could leave this country and I wouldn’t shed a tear over it.

      But, the United States still holds all rights to any assets they have.

      Actually, all these Red States could form their own government. The rest of us would join with Canada and be better for it as a result. That’s of course, IF Canada would have us.

  28. rpg1408 November 30, 2012

    Shouldn’t there be an IQ test for potential members of Congress, or at least a test of their sanity ?

  29. bstockinger November 30, 2012

    Gohmert doesn’t let any facts get in his way. When you live in never never land, paranoia is the norm. I’m sure he actually believes what he’s saying, which is really scary. You know that he has lost his marbles, maybe he never had any, when he calls his fellow republican, John McCain “numbnuts”.
    You have to wonder how many people got railroaded when this clown was judge.

  30. emadis41 November 30, 2012

    No doubt there are a lot of crazy jackasses like him around.

  31. AliciaSolis November 30, 2012

    This clown gives the entire state of Texas a bad name,and I thought it was impossible to sink any lower…

  32. njguy54 November 30, 2012

    If the GOP was serious about remodeling itself in the wake of the 2012 election, its leadership would tell Gohmert and his ilk to shut their pie-holes. But as it stands, it will take just one of these wingnuts to undo any effort at broader outreach — in this case, to the non-crazy population.

  33. karinursula November 30, 2012

    are there only wackos in the GOP?

  34. AliciaSolis November 30, 2012

    Please,please let Texas succeed…Good riddance…

  35. RobGinChicago November 30, 2012

    DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS!!! (Because it’s really messed up already).

  36. George November 30, 2012

    gohmert is another loon who has lost his relevance!!!!!

  37. jstsyn November 30, 2012

    How do idiots like gohmert get elected? What is wrong with the folks in Texass? Cooper should have just ended the interview, I couldn’t watch or listen to all of it.

  38. Alex McIntosh November 30, 2012

    How embarrassing this is. Signed a long standing citizen of TX

    1. Joseph Stans December 18, 2012

      I suppose but remember your political heritage: Miriam Ferguson, a governor in the 30’s is purported (during a discussion of bi-lingual education) to have said “If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it ought to be good enough for the children of Texas.”
      While possibly embarrassing, Texas came to it’s present level of ignorance honestly via the traditional method of working hard to be as dumb as possible. It followed Alabama’s lead.

  39. jimmy w November 30, 2012

    numbnuts? that’s what i call him too

  40. william michael November 30, 2012

    What an idiot ; actually there are three things that come from Texas and one of them is an idiot congressman. What a shame and an embarassment. JR is turning in his grave!

  42. onedonewong November 30, 2012

    Lets see we had a country that no longer posed any threat to the US after Reagan bombed his tent and W read him the riot act. Libya was central to our ability to get information from al quida operatives. They incarcerated them as well as assisting in interrogations.
    Now we have a country being run by moooslim terrorists and this congressman is crazy???
    Too bad the 4th estate has been sitting on its hands concerning Barak since 2007

  43. Joe Gannon December 4, 2012

    When Gohmert kept saying “help us fill the hole” at the end I started looking around on his head, sure I would find that hole somewhere on it. It’s amazing that a member of Congress could spend an entire interview that lasted several minutes screaming at the top of his lungs. I don’t think he ever let Cooper get more than 4 or 5 words out of his mouth before he started ranting again. When you don’t want to allow the other person to speak it’s a clear indication that you are afraid they are going to reveal that you have no idea what you are talking about.

  44. Michelle Rose December 4, 2012

    Demagogue? Or simply a lunatic? Unfortunately, lunatics are rarely “simple.” That man is a bewildering concoction of half-baked racism, left-over xenophobia, reheated paranoia, and plain ol’ fortress mentality. Not exactly “simple”, but certainly toxic.

    It astonishes me that such people actually exist, but then, I’m from Oregon and a wingnut like that here would be gently and carefully restrained and then remanded into custody of the Mental Health division. (Unless he waves a gun around, in which case, our cops are more likely to shoot him)

    It’s tempting to label him as very very sick. But his sickness seems to be endemic to southern politicians. Something in the water down south? I dunno, but there is a cure for it, at least for younger folks. It’s called Get The Facts. Past a certain undefinable age, the brains of people like Gohmert lose their flexibility; a form of Alzheimer’s, I suspect. Beyond that point, no amount of facts or sweet reason can convince people like Gohmert that their ideas are nothing but insanity.

  45. Jkjljmjn Pqprpspt December 5, 2012

    The video ends on a silly note… Anderson presumes to the level of respect for a court judge, thereby showing his agenda.

  46. Yvonne Gay December 5, 2012

    I cannot understand why the republican party don,t understand hat everyone in American is not white . therefore the white viewpoint is not shared by the majority of American citzens.

  47. Yvonne Gay December 5, 2012

    There are many smart white people in the republican party. There are also many in the republican party who are not mean and make disrepectful remarks likelike those of West,

    1. Del WS January 11, 2013

      The problem is that those smart, white, not mean Republicans aren’t standing up to condemn the Republicans who ARE mean and making up lies and sounding delusional. Anyone who’s not coming forward to end the nastiness and work toward a solution is part of the problem.

  48. joe December 5, 2012

    What an idiot! Let’s just make unfounded statements and wild accusations without any factual basis. This type of idiocy is what is destroying the party of Lincoln!

  49. joe December 5, 2012

    What an idiot! It is this type of irresponsible comment/wild accusations lacking credible factual evidence that is destroying the GOP – The party of Lincoln our greatest president.

  50. Richie T December 6, 2012

    Investigate a “Muslim brotherhood” “deep penetration” “Federal Government”
    How many more times are the Republicans going to scream about Obama and the Constitution, He can’t do it but we can. I doesn’t work that way.
    The Constitution
    “No Religious Test Clause”
    Article VI, paragraph 3
    The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

    Come’on folks! This is nothing more then the same ploy Donald Chump has used in the past to get free press coverage. Say something so outrageous, so stupid that everyone would be focused on him.

    Well we’re focused on you dummy.

    Look out! That Muslim Brotherhood barista that just served you Espresso put a 40 Kiloton nuclear weapon in your cup. Stir carefully!

    Why does anyone take anything these dipstix say seriously. Oh wait, he’s from Texas, land of the stupid-o gringo.

  54. Joseph Stans December 18, 2012

    There rally is no excuse for anyone to take this fool seriously, much less report on his dementia. His mental health issues are, no-doubt, shared by a majority in his district. Every state has area(s) that should just be quarantined for their own good and the good of the nation.

  55. PamelaT December 20, 2012

    This guy and Adam Lanza about the same mental capacity.

  56. kay December 27, 2012

    Sounds like plain old sound truth to me. Gohmert is just painting you a truthful picture of whats really happened. Funny, but with the leftwing commie media, who refuses to inform us or even tell the truth for that matter, you people want to kill the messenger. Here, I’ll say it again, OBAMA IS ARMING and AIDING RADICAL MUSLIMS IN THEIR QUEST TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD! The killing of OBL and his henchmen was just another globalist lie meant to make Obama appear to not be the enemy. Believe me, he is the enemy along with the rest of his regime. You people need to wake up and see all of this for what it really is instead of condemning the truth. Gohmert is by no means alone in his beliefs, so keep calling him a redneck or whatever, but don’t forget to thank him when reality hits you in the face.

    I wonder how many people are in prison because of this crazy man.

    Where in the $%&@@ do these people get their ideas with absolutely No common sense, no rationality and certainly No facts of which to stand on..As such, he and others like him in the Tea Party should be held for Treason in their attempt to undermine the President of the United States..Free speech is not an issue with this type of rhetoric, none what so ever..Period! The term Ignorant doesn’t even begin to explain trhe mindset of these people..Let’s stop this maddness of the House and Senate Republicans who do No Good for Our Country…Impeach Them! and then set up a mental test of future elections for those who voted them into office.

    My family and I are born Texans, but most of all strong Liberal Democrats virtually forever..As such, from the Pahandle of Texas south we have seen extremist Republicans come into the state and literally destroy what it once stood for, which in eseence began when the Republican came in and took over the leadership of Churches throughout the state, especially in the circles of Evangelicans..In fact, this Conservative Right Wing Conservativeness, which actually began with the John Burch Society aka Tea Party even spread all over the midwest and the southern states. It needs to STOP along with their Bias and Prejudice that is increasingly obvious against Pres. Obama which has and is hindering the countries recovery from the Last Bush/Republican recession/depression..Lets be real

      You have my sympathy and a wish for you and others like you to manage to influence change. I’m impressed with the Castro brothers and hope they can help Texas change for the better.

    Gohmert seems like a top choice for the “Stupidest person in Congress” award, despite stiff competition from the likes of Bachmann, Steve King, Joe Barton and Tim Huelskamp.

    I guess he also believed that Obama shooed away sunlight to get the dark devil of night and coined an ancient Texan song. Well. someone has to blame someone for the Night time. I can hear Obama now, ‘the stars at night, are clear and bright, deep in the heart of Texas’.

    Yeesh…all that petrochemical pollution is warping the minds of Texan politicians. If we thought Rick Perry was off the beam and George W. Bush strangely buffoonish, this guy puts the icing on the cake.

    Anyone want to take bets there will be a “Texan Spring?” any day now?

    Damn, these radical lunatics hate supporting a President who actually gives a damn about the middle class, our seniors and sustaining a safety net for the poor. They seem to hate that he feels that the wealthy, who are the only ones who actually thrived during an economic crisis, should contribute more to the treasury, not hide the money they made in the USA, in foreign bank accounts and export our jobs. So this “pro-Muslim” President, who was the one who actually killed Bin Laden and who has done more to destroy Al-Quaeda’s leadership and their ability to perform major terrorist attacks, than any previous administration, is actually conspiring to allow them to perform attacks. I hope the GOP continues their crazy ranting and totally ludacris attacks on the President, as they are just digging their own political graves.

    Uh, well, I’m speechless. & considering what Texans have meant to the nation when gaining political office (by hook or crook), it’s typical of what my Mom’s generation believed, that it was abuse to leave a child in the hot sun too long… as the consequences are WAY TOO OBVIOUS!!! So no need wondering why he has voters that support him… in Texas… Ya know, I got an idea!!! Lets make D.C. a ‘state’, allow Texas to secceed & call call it even!!!

    THIS IS A FOOL! Every Texan should be ashame to have his to represent the State of Texas.

    Man this is unbelievable. Just think for a minute, that people are voting for someone like this to be in Congress. It is beyond scary to see someone like this. I thought Sarah Palin was dumb. We have met the enemy and it is us.
