There's some really crazy happening in the Republican primaries everywhere this season, but when you toss in some Tom Tancredo, the crazy just
can't be topped:
He rattles off all of the challenges the nation has faced, the Civil War, the cold war, the threat of nuclear annihilation, the 9/11 attacks, and then concludes, at about the 1:40 mark:
But I firmly believe this, it's not just you know a dramatic statement that a person would make just to get press or something, to get ink, but I believe this with all of my heart--that the greatest threat to the United States today, the greatest threat to our liberty, the greatest threat to the Constitution of the United States, the greatest threat to our way of life, everything we believe in, the greatest threat to the country that was put together by the founding fathers, is the guy that's in the White House today.
And the (small) crowd goes wild.
The greatest threat to America's future is precisely what Tom Tancredo and his ilk are trying to achieve--a frothed up, dangerous, extremist Right. Coming from someone who took the oath of office, it's bordering on treason. And it's the new Republican way, if you can judge by Rand Paul, Sharron Angle, or Ken Buck.
