A Republican congressman from Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist dictatorship."It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force," Rep. Paul Broun said...You know, kinda like the WPA?
The Obama transition team declined to comment on Broun's remarks. But spokesman Tommy Vietor said Obama was referring in the speech to a proposal for a civilian reserve corps that could handle postwar reconstruction efforts such as rebuilding infrastructure _ an idea endorsed by the Bush administration.
They're only tough until they lose. Then they turn into the biggest crybaby paranoiacs in the world.
No, Paulie: it's not "a bit crazy and off base"--it's a lot crazy and off-base. And cowardly.
This is the same jackass who sponsored a "defense of traditional marriage" act, tried to dictate to the GA house how they would pause during the Pledge of Allegiance, tried to ban Playboy magazine from army bases, tried to outlaw in vitro fertilization, and lied about his Vietnam service.
Republicans: these are the lunatics who have taken over your asylum. Don't you want your party--the party of fiscal conservatism, minimal government intervention, maximal personal rights--back?
