Politicians That Peddle Hate

“What I don’t like from the president’s administration is this sort of, ‘I’ll put my boot heel on the throat of BP,”‘ Rand said in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business.”

~Tea Party Candidate now Congressman Rand Paul (R-KY) called President Obama un-American for criticizing oil company BP for it’s responsibility in the Gulf Oil spill.

A GOP rally attendee shouted a question about “Obama tags” during discussion of Idaho’s upcoming wolf hunt, where hunters must purchase an $11.50 tag as a license to kill a wolf. Rammell responded, “The Obama tags? We’d buy some of those.”

I feel that the Second Amendment is the right to keep and bear arms for our citizenry. This not for someone who’s in the military. This not for law enforcement. This is for us. And in fact when you read that Constitution and the founding fathers, they intended this to stop tyranny. This is for us when our government becomes tyrannical. It’s to defend ourselves. And you know, I’m hoping that we’re not getting to Second Amendment remedies. I hope the vote will be the cure for the Harry Reid problems.

“What I would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. I wish they would. I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America? I think the American people would love to see an expose like that.” “Absolutely, I’m very concerned that he may have anti-American views.”

~ Michelle Bachmann (R-NY)called fellow members of Congress anti-American and called for an investigation into their ‘American-ness’ during an interview with Chris Matthews of MSNBC, Rep. Michele Bachmann called on the media to investigate anti-American sentiment in Congress, after slamming Barack Obama as “anti-American.”

“Take [Rep.] Steve Driehaus, for example,” he may be a dead man. He can’t go home to the west side of Cincinnati. The Catholics will run him out of town.”

“We hunt liberal, tree-hugging Democrats, although it does seem like a waste of good ammunition”.

~ Rep. Gregg Harper’s(R-MS) response to the question “What in the world does the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus do?”

“I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us ‘having a revolution every now and then is a good thing,’ and the people — we the people — are going to have to fight back hard if we’re not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States.”
