Huelskamp accused President Obama of “running against the military,” citing the Commander-in-Chief’s desire to bring the troops home from an illegal war and “close Gitmo” as evidence of the claim. According to this representative of the crazy wing of the stupid party accused the President of using the military when it supports him politically.
He was also critical of President Obama’s promise to utilize dreaded (when the black President uses them) executive orders to accomplish many of his goals in helping to ensure that the American standard life improves. Huelskamp further claimed that not one single diplomat in BENGHAZI died for his country, because (insert the usual arguments).
Predictably, Huelskamp accused Maddow of being a cheerleader for the Obama administration, but that didn’t end her relentless hammering of the Congressman with his own words. The Congressman accused that “imperialist” Obama of listing 14 different “dictates” (executive orders) that were an affront to the American people.
‘I don’t like Congress, I don’t like the American people who sent these people up here,” said Huelskamp of Obama. However, at no point did he demonstrate the illegality of the lawfully elected President of the United States making use of his executive powers, no matter how much Maddow pressed him.
