Early Morning Swim: Steve King (R-IA) Goes Birther on Floor of House
Meanwhile, another House Republican compares Obama to Hitler — also on the House floor.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) drew a comparison between President Obama and Hitler in a speech on the House floor last night that quoted a recent op-ed by conservative columnist Thomas Sowell. In his op-ed, Sowell argued that Obama’s call for BP to set up an escrow account to help oil spill victims in the Gulf was a sign that “American democracy is being dismantled, piece by piece, before our very eyes.”
Think Gohmert or King will apologize after a few days of shitstorm in the media?
Nah. We assume by now that elected Republican officials think Obama’s not a US citizen — just like Hitler!
