It Never Stops & More Embarrassment for GA

Does anyone remember what happened to the Dixie Chicks? Talk about Un-American. This guy's district isn't that far away from my home. Even with all of George Bush's faults, I have never called him a Fascist, or a NAZI. Broun should be impeached. He cannot be emailed from his web page unless you are in his district. I have tried my address with a zip code from his district and that did not work. This man is pandering to the low lifes who continue to try to disrupt the political process through baseless lies.

From the Atlanta Journal:

Ga. congressman calls Obama Marxist, warns of dictatorship

The Associated Press
Monday, November 10, 2008

WASHINGTON — A Republican congressman from Georgia is calling President-elect Obama a Marxist and warning that he might be planning to form a Gestapo-like security force so he can rule as a dictator.

Two-term Rep. Paul Broun of Athens cited a July speech that has circulated on the Internet in which Obama called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.

Broun said he was not fear mongering but wants to warn people that the nation could be going down that path.

His comments came in a Monday telephone interview with The Associated Press after he called Obama a Marxist at a Rotary Club meeting in his district over the weekend.

Update: Guess What?

Paul Broun now says he didn't mean to call Obama a Marxist and say that he was going to create a dictatorship. He "misspoke" and the press misquoted him. Riiiiight. When will politicians learn that they can say one thing, then claim that they either didn't say it, they were misquoted, or they simply "misspoke?" This is the day of the electronic media. It is everywhere. Everyone is listening, recording, and filming. Basically, Broun is lying. He said it, he meant it, and he can't take it back. At least he did apologize, sort of. He said, "I regret saying it that way. Yes, I do. I apologize to anybody that’s taken offense at that." That's kind of an apology, kinda, sort of, maybe...but not really. He meant to say what he said. He just didn't think he would get caught in a Rotary Club speech, but everyone in that Rotary Club wasn't an extremist Republican, thankfully.

Update 2: It seems that the Bush Administration already has a Civilian Force already in the works. Rep. Broun refuses to comment on that little tidbit. Just like the rest of the Republican party, he knows little more than to prey upon the fears of his shrinking base. At this point most Republicans that are clinging the little bit of party that they have left are those who continue to cater to the unthinking, uneducated, narrow minded, shills who follow them.

Yeah, sorta like when Obama writes a book telling how Rev. Wright was his mentor, married him, baptized his children, attended his church for 20 years and never heard him say those controversial statements, huh? mom2

I don't quite see the parallel mom2. I haven't read that book yet. Which one was it? I plan to read his books soon, and I will start with that one. I assume that you have read it, since you can quote from it with authority. I don't recall Obama saying that he never heard Rev. Wright say things. He said he didn't agree with what he said.

You didn't see every interview that was on tv either. mom2
