Congressman Has Interesting Answer to Question, ‘Who Is Going to Shoot Obama?’


When that question was asked of Georgia congressman Paul Broun at a recent town hall, Broun — the same guy who claimed President Obama doesn't believe in the Constitution — responded not by condemning the outrageous suggestion that the president should be assassinated, but by just kind of casually letting it slide.

The thing is, I know there’s a lot of frustration with this president. We’re going to have an election next year. Hopefully, we’ll elect somebody that’s going to be a conservative, limited-government president that will take a smaller, who will sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

A Broun spokesman, with similar understatement, says the questioner's comment was "inappropriate."
