You decide the IQ of some of these candidates.
How that addresses the birther issue regarding Obama is not clear, but it does provide a podium from which one could preach the birther agenda again. I get that. What troubles me is how that could affect a future GOP candidate, Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada. Also, there are rumors about Posey's grandmother. Here is the rumor; time will tell.
Rep. Joe Barton is a congressman from Texas. Here is his defense of hydrocarbon energy, "I would point out that if you're a believer in the Bible, one would have to say the Great Flood is an example of climate change and that certainly wasn't because mankind had overdeveloped hydrocarbon energy." Here is the actual video: Republican Congressman Cites Biblical Great Flood To Say Climate Change Isn't Man-Made
Barton accuses the White House of a shakedown by creating $20 billion slush fund. as a result of the BP's Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Barton simple question about Arctic oil:
This is Barton's explanation of global warming and that CO2 is not a problem. "I am creating it as I talk to you. It's in your Coca-Cola, you're Dr. Pepper, your Perrier water. ... It's in our Coca-Cola, is necessary for human life, is odorless, colorless, tasteless, does not cause cancer, and does not cause ... It doesn't cause asthma; it doesn't cause your eyes to water; it doesn't cause cancer." This quote is at 2:28 in his defense of global warming.
Barton also said,
Finally, the next video clip is of Stephen Colbert's effort to assist Barton. However, south of us on I-65 is wind farm that generates electricity from the wind. Maybe Barton can stand out with his hot air and generate more than laughter in Washington.
King is concerned not just with drug mules who are illegal aliens; he is also a birther. Chris Matthews challenges King's logic.
This is King's research:
King proves that America is a Christian nation not with any statistical data but with a story about running over a neighbor's dog. Before he uses that allegory again, he needs to read about the Founding Fathers' religious or non-religious backgrounds.
Rep. Louie Gohmert from Texas does not like Obama because of his alleged connection with the Muslim Brotherhood. There is a vast conspiracy with Islam to take over the world. When I was young, the great conspiracy was with the godless commies taking over, McCarthy, and the John Birch Society. Now, it is the Muslims. Louie Gohmert: 'Muslim Brotherhood Members' Have 'Influence' In Obama Administration
Now, Gohmert is also an authority on caribou mating habits: "So when they want to go on a date, they invite each other to head over to the pipeline...So my real concern now...if oil stops running through the pipeline...do we need a study to see how adversely the caribou would be affected if that warm oil ever quit flowing?"
Gohmert claims that Obama's debt default is an impeachable offense.
Gohmert explains a slip of the tongue by Obama. Gohmert thinks that Obama slip of the tongue was due to Obama tie to the 57-members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). This is the quote followed by the video.
Oddly, Broun is on the Science Committee of the House.
Broun also is concerned about how Obama has morphed into a combination of a Marxist and Hitler.
Lawrence O'Donnell also confronts Bachmann on many issues:
George Stephanopoulos argues with Bachman:
Bachmann gives America a really stupid history lessons:
Anderson Cooper's list of Bachmann's videos lies:
Finally, allow me to put all my cards on the table. I grew up with a father who fought in WWII in the South Pacific and came home to raise his family. My parents surely voted for Eisenhower and were republicans. However, during the Nixon debacle, my dad and I would argue about Tricky Dick, which is what I called Nixon. My dad called him, President Nixon. However, after 2-years of news out of Washington, Nixon left office. My father gave me that Christmas a book about Watergate and wrote on the inside of the book that I saw something that he had missed. From then until his death, he did not live in a parallel universe like many had during those days long ago of Watergate.
However, while doing the research for this article, it flabbergasted me by the dishonesty and/or stupidity of these half dozen Members of Congress. That is troubling. There are members of Congress that live in a parallel universe. However, what is more troubling is that many Americans have for them. We have an exceptional country, but all too often, it has some exceptionally stupid voters.
Forrest had it correct..."Stupid is as stupid does."
