Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) said last year that too big a deal was made of his comment about Obama is not an American "in his heart." But reporters were right not to think otherwise.
Here's another slap at Obama by a Republican Congressman that's in the same ballpark, and it deserves to be picked up by the more journalists.
On KFKA's Amy Oliver Show Friday, Rep. Cory Gardner leveled this attack on Obama:
Gardner: This is a president who is doing everything he can to make this nation no longer abide to the rule of law.
Oliver: Wow. What does that do to the rule of law?
Gardner: It weakens it tremendously.
I guess Gardner would advise me not to let people like Obama hang out with my teenage son? Unless I want anarchists hanging around the house?
Admittedly, it's hard to know sometimes, with extremists all around us, when the extremism threshold has been passed. But reasonable reporters should agree that this is one of those times.
