GOP Rep. Brags He Was The First To Call Obama A ‘Socialist’

In a fundraising letter for his Senate campaign, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) trumpeted the fact that he was the first member of Congress to call President Obama a "socialist."

"I was the first Member of Congress to call him a socialist who embraces Marxist-Leninist policies like government control of health care and redistribution of wealth," Broun said in the letter, obtained by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Broun made news last year when he called evolution and the Big Bang Theory "lies straight from the pit of hell." He launched his Senate campaign for retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss' (R-GA) seat last week.

Broun's fundraising letter also boasted: "Just about every week, my friends and closest allies congratulate me and genuinely thank me for telling the truth of just how messed up this country has become under President Obama."

To call Paul Broun a racist, sheet wearing, cross burning, knuckle dragging, mouth breather, who can be replaced by two dead batteries and an off switch!!!

2. The country was already a mess by the time President Obama took office

they were willing to shovel all of the blame for, well, everything onto him the instant that he took office.

3. Today, I hope I'm the first to call him a jackass

and frankly, I'm sorry to be insulting any creature by comparing them to broun.

Maybe he's instead just a stinky pile of shit.

11. I have a hunch people have been calling him that for many years.

That kind of idiocy doesn't just appear overnight.

5. Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

He's my Congressman, and now he's running for Senate

He's the one who thinks evolution is a lie from the "pit of hell" and that he's somehow being reasonable by claiming that the Earth is 9,000 years old, not 6,000.

6. Amazing to be so openly proud of your stupidity,

racism and ignorance.
Wish I could vote against him.

7. Broun will also have a "devastating" accusation against his opponent in the Senatorial contest

He will accuse his opponent of claiming the world is not flat and that it has existed for MORE than 6000 years.

Such damaging rhetoric, and Fox Noise will probably back him up, too, if he uses it.

8. You sure were, Paul Broun!

You also were the first Congressman to prove that the Puritans are apparently still alive and well in this country! Congratulations! (Please kill yourself)

12. I respected his predecessor the late Charlie Dingell Norwood.

Broun is no Norwood.
