Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


This is another good example of why people like Palin and other Republicans and Tea Party members should be prosecuted for inciting violence and murder for hire!

Yes!  I said murder for hire.  Calling upon others to do a violent act by asking this question .  This is not the first time that a right wing lunatic has called for the death of President Obama with a question, comment or statement of this kind and it will not be the last if nothing is done to them.  If people in this Country do not pay the consequences for their actions and even words then this will only get worse.  The tea party and republicans have gotten away with more through their actions and words of invoking violence, racism, criminal acts and lies since the starting of the 2008 election then I have seen in my lifetime!  When do those in authority say enough is enough?  It's not like we the (sane) people have not been asking for action on this matter! What really ticks me off, these people have the nerve to call themselves patriots, the real Americans!  -Mem

Town Hall Attendee Asks GA Republican When Someone Is Going To Shoot Obama

Ryan J. Reilly | February 24, 2011, 10:50PM

An audience member at a town hall hosted by Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) on Tuesday asked the Tea Party congressman who was going to shoot President Barack Obama.

The unidentified town hall attendee's question got a big laugh from the audience, reports Blake Aued of the Athens Banner-Herald.

But Broun didn't exactly condemn the remark, according to the newspaper report.

"The thing is, I know there's a lot of frustration with this president. We're going to have an election next year," Broun said in response to the question. "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."

Broun had asked the audience who had driven the farthest to be at the meeting and let the winner ask the first question, according to the newspaper. The reporter couldn't hear the question himself, but Broun's press secretary confirmed that the question was about when someone was going to shoot the President.

"Obviously, the question was inappropriate, so Congressman Broun moved on," Broun's press secretary Jessica Morris told Aued.

You may remember Broun as the member of Congress who skipped the State of the Union Address in favor of live Tweeting about Obama's "socialism" from his office.

Late Update: The Secret Service does not comment on such cases as a matter of policy, spokesman Max Milien told TPM in an e-mail.
