Watch: Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert Compares President Obama To An Alcoholic (VIDEO)

On a serious note, where does the irrational hatred and disrespect towards our president end? Since he took office in January 2009 (and here we are in January 2015), Republicans have gotten more sinister, more vile, and more outrageous in the things they say and the conduct in which they see themselves in.

Take Louie Gohmert as a perfect example of the right’s repulsive standard for  speech regarding President Obama. While appearing on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom two days ago, the Republican Congressman from Texas thought it would be necessary to compare the Commander in Chief to an alcoholic. Why would he say such a thing? Because, in the mind of Gohmert, President Obama has “admitted” that the Democratic Party is “the party of no”:

Trace: It’s gotta’ be great news, the President says he wants to work with Republicans now.

Gohmert: Well, what he says is he wants to get out his pen and veto. But what I’m excited about is after all these years, Trace, now the President is finally admitting they’ve been lying, he and Harry Reid, all those folks that have been saying “Republicans were the party of no,” he’s basically admitted in this statement that “Uh yeah, we’ve been the party of no,” but I have been able to rely on Harry Reid to say no so I didn’t have to. But we’ve been the ones to really stop it. That’s what I’m hearing in that statement. And I’m glad the President is finally admitted, like an alcoholic, the best news is when you finally admit what your problem is. 

Actually, the problem was Mitch McConnell, who has been instrumental in blocking so much of President Obama’s progress. What choice have they left for him? After then discussing the GOP’s “great ideas” in healthcare and the Keystone Pipeline, Gohmert referenced all the times President Clinton “caved” to the Republican majority on issues such as welfare reform and a balanced budget, saying then he thinks he “can do the same thing to this President.”

Good luck with that. Obama is on a roll, and your friends in the House and Senate are shaking in their boots.
