GOP Fla.: 'President Obama is a Muslim, will take away Medicare

Clay County Republican campaign volunteer makes controversial call
Woman tells residents President Obama is a Muslim, will take away Medicare



You don't want Obama, you really don't want Obama, because he will get rid of your Medicare. You might as well say goodbye to it," the volunteer said.

What she said next is raising even more concern.

"I don't know if you've done any research on Obama or not, but he is a Muslim, he does got a socialistic view on the economy, the government, the whole nine yards," the volunteer said. "If he had his way, we would be a socialistic county."

The man who recorded the call in Polk County is a Republican who wants to remain anonymous. He traced the call back to Republican headquarters in Clay County. He gave the recording to a Tampa radio station, WMNF 88.5 FM, which aired the conversation.

"I thought it was pretty lousy," the man, in a phone interview, said of the volunteer caller's comments. "Especially the couple on there, they were an older couple and (the woman was) basically lying to them. That did not sit well with me."

Leslie Dougher, chair of the Clay County Republican Party, said the Republican Party is sorry this call occurred.

'm sure this volunteer still has her job and is just more careful now. They are not sorry.If they mentioned the volunteer by name and said they fired her I would cut them some slack.

5. Kudos to the man who recorded the call.

Just proves that not ALL Republicans are batshit insane. Just most of them.

6. it reminds me of the call I got (live in NV) from GA

during the last presidential election. the woman told me that she just had a feeling, she just didn't trust Obama. I asked her why, because he's part black. she quickly said, oh no, no-I just feel he's not to be trusted. I just laughed at her and told her I wasn't giving her party a chance to do more economic damage than they've already done.
