For a party which has the not-so-bright and comical Michele Bachmann considering a presidential run, nothing should surprise anyone when it comes to the idiocy running rampant throughout the GOP. Yet somehow, Texan Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert never ceases to surprise. Gohmert (of terror baby fame) believes he might know the real reason behind President Obama’s Libyan intervention. The conspiracy theory has it’s origins in the Affordable Care Act which Gohmert is hoping to dismantle.
Gohmert on the floor of the House:
It’s a bad bill. And then when you find out that the prior Congress not only passed that 2,800 page bill with all kinds of things in it, including a new president’s commissioned officer corps and non-commissioned officer corps. Do we really need that? I wondered when I read that in the bill. But then when you find out we’re being sent to Libya to use our treasure and American lives there, maybe there’s intention to so deplete the military that we’re going to need that presidential reserve officer commissioned corps and non-commissioned corps that the president can call up on a moment’s notice involuntarily, according to the Obamacare bill.
Good one, Louie. You figured it out. The Kenyan Muslim in the White House is going to bring about the end of the U.S. military so that his Obamacare Force of doctors and health care workers can rise and take out good conservatives with hypodermic needles filled with a venomous solution concocted by an African witch doctor.
Louie Gohmert is either paranoid or a dumbass. I’m guessing he’s both. FactCheck has the truth behind Obama’s secret army.
Do you ever wonder how so many willfully ignorant Republicans get elected to public office? Might it be that they’re fractionally less stupid than the people who vote for them?
