The south, mostly.
In this case Georgia.
It should be noted that Congressman Broun is the same intellectually bankrupt conservative who skipped the State of the Union Address in favor of live Tweeting about Obama’s “socialism” from his office. No one will ever accuse him of having an ivy-league mind.
That any Broun could stand before a crowd of people, and hear a question or statement from a conservative bigot about shooting the President, like that made in Georgia, and not order the person out of the room in the strongest terms is mind-boggling. That the Congressman would laugh himself……unconscionable.
The Athens Banner Herald reports Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) was asked at a town hall meeting, “Who is going to shoot Obama?”
The question was met with laughter, but Broun did not immediately condemn it. In fact, TPM reports several witnesses say Broun laughed as well.
Said Broun: “The thing is, I know there’s a lot of frustration with this president. We’re going to have an election next year. Hopefully, we’ll elect somebody that’s going to be a conservative, limited-government president that will take a smaller, who will sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
Later, Greg Sargent notes Broun issued a statement, noting “I deeply regret that this incident happened at all.”
How brave to do it afterwards!
Congressman Brown is a real scumbag. He should have had the balls to stand up among the hayseeds in that room and denounce in the strongest terms the sentiments that were raised. That he did not shows the cowardly and backwards piece of crap he truly is.
