GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa is a pathetic shell of a man who is now one of the highest ranking Republicans to officially join the false Muslim smear campaign against Barack Obama.

King touches on a dizzying array of subjects and manages to be wrong on every single on of them.

King is dangerous.

5. He doesn't say it directly but he does say it.
He even says that the terrorist will be dancing in the streets because of his middle name and who his father was.

6. he is spreading the smear
you are right, he didn't literally say that Barack Obama was a Muslim. However, he was clearly spreading the smear. That's why I used the world "spreading"; I could have used "stoking" or what not.

9. He said
an Obama victory would be a greater disaster than 911. He must be in a safe seat. King is a certified butt plug. Gotta wonder what he does in airport rest rooms.
