Tea Party U.S. Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA) yesterday claimed that “the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution,” in response to the President’s inauguration speech.
“The Constitution I uphold and defend is the one I carry in my pocket all the time, the U.S. Constitution,” Rep. Broun told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I don’t know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it’s not this one. I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer.”
Congressman, Broun, who earlier this month voted against relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy, last year became infamous for saying that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang Theory are all “lies straight from the pit of hell.” (Image, top, from that infamous video.)
In 2011, Broun tweeted, “Mr. President, you don’t believe in the Constitution. You believe in socialism,” while refusing to attend the State of the Union address — instead hanging out in his office and watching it on the TV. And tweeting.
Brun then told CBS News that President Obama is a “socialist,” and wouldn’t deny calling Obama a “domestic enemy.”
