According to Tea Bagger extraordinaire, Louie Gohmert, President Obama is part of the “Ayatollah Caucus.”
The Republicans have been having a bit of a fit lately. Their hero, Bibi Netanyahu, gave a speech recently where he attempted to undermine US/Iranian negotiations over Iran’s nuclear plans. The Republicans have been agitating for a while to attack Iran; if anything, Bibi’s speech made it worse.
Never one to hold back his feelings, Representative Louie Gohmert went after Obama with both barrels on the FRC’s Washington Watch, letting Liar Tony Perkins know just how he felt:
Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Rep. Louie Gohmert criticized President Obama and Vice President Biden for declining to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he came to speak to the U.S. Congress just before the Israeli elections.
Gohmert told the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins that while he attends Obama’s speeches out of “respect for the office” even though he rarely agrees with what the president is saying, Obama and other administration officials “disrespected Israel and disrespected the leader of Israel, it was not about the man.” “If you named a caucus by who it helped, you’d have to name this one the Ayatollah Caucus,”
Gohmert said of Obama, before hailing Netanyahu as the “Esther for the United States.”
If a Democrat ever did that while a Republican president was in office, the right-wing would be forming a lynch mob and stringing people up. Hell, the Dixie Chicks didn’t even throw in behind a foreign leader, they just criticized Bush, and they were eaten alive.
Undermining the United States because the president is Black is apparently one of those things that’s A-Okay if you’re a Republican.
