GOP Rep: ‘The Only Constitution That Barack Obama Upholds Is The Soviet Constitution’

For more than four years, a never-ending parade of conservatives have sought to label President Obama a socialist hell-bent on destroying the very fabric of America, but Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) has managed to take the rhetoric a step further.

The tea party congressman was asked by a reporter from the Atlanta Journal Constitution on Tuesday if he felt compelled to move his party further to the right, to which Broun responded by accusing President Obama of defending a non-existant “Soviet constitution:”

“I think my role is to uphold support and defend our Constitution,” he said. “…The Constitution I uphold and defend is the one I carry in my pocket all the time, the U.S. Constitution. I don’t know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it’s not this one. I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer.”

As the AJC noted in a brief summation of the congressman’s remarks, the last Soviet constitution was ratified in 1977 and disappeared along with the Soviet Union before Obama graduated from law school.

Some members of that dying breed known as Tea Party congressman apparently still believe that the best defense is a good offense. Of course to a tea bagger a 'good offense' sounds a lot like being an idiot.

Some other of Bron's rather conservative positions:

Evolution is "lies straight from the pit of hell";
End Birthright Citizenship; no more anchor babies;
No EPA regulation of greenhouse gases;
Deauthorize funding for Obamacare;
NO on expanding the Children's Health Insurance Program;
NO on prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation;
Declare preborn as persons under 14th amendment;
YES on banning federal health coverage that includes abortion
(There are many, many more...)

2. I'd bet 70% of GOP congress couldn't pass a high school World History or US government exam.

5. What pathetic Neandrethal losers the Republicans are

These chickenhawk dummies are the Republican 'leaders'? Strong is the stoopid. Strong is their mendacity.

6. This clown probably isn't even cognizant of the fact that the Soviet Union ceased to

exist about 25 years ago.

My niece is 28 and she barely knows what it was. She certainly remembers little of it other than the big news in 1989 about the fall of the Berlin Wall.
