Tancredo: "It's Not al-Qaida, It's The Guy Sitting In The White House"

Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo says President Barack Obama is a bigger threat to the United States than al-Qaida or terrorism.

He made the comments while campaigning in Canon City Tuesday.

The Canon City Daily Record reported that Tancredo said that Obama posed a threat to the Constitution, saying "It's not al-Qaida, it's the guy sitting in the White House."

Tancredo also said he believes Obama and Democratic Colorado gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper are "kindred spirits."

Tancredo has a reputation for controversial comments, including a suggestion that the United States bomb Islam's holy sites if attacked by nuclear weapons.

The former Republican congressman is running on the American Constitution Party ticket.

    Unfortunately, most of America is convinced that nothing bad will happen here unlike those foreign countries. They think that they can wake up every 4 years and vote and go back to sleep again and everything will be OK. Martial Law? Nah, not in this country. As george carlin said, "The Germans lost; fascism didn't lose." Fascism is alive and well in the USA. BP is in charge. Need another example???

    Tom gets my vote for saying something honest. Your country is on the edge and expecting a warm & fuzzy solution to world government doesn't count. Prepare for the next US revolution.

    I never agreed with Pres.Bush but I would never disrespect him or the office like some idiots have .But it is part of what is wrong with the country right now,no middle ground ,no compermise .It wouldnt matter whos in office ,if we as a people cant see others views and at least respect them .Then we will go down as a country . Colorado Springs almost has a church on every corner but I'm amazed how nasty some of comments I read everyday are and I know these people making these ungodly comments are the same people marching there butts to church every sunday .I believe colorado springs has alot of hypocrites living in its city .

    Yeah, people - go about your stupid ways and vote for the nut case of your choice! All of you seem to know so freakin much about running this country after the Republicans trashed it - why don't you run for President? Keep us in the toilet where the reps want us to remain. After all it took them 8 painful years to get us there! I think that half of you must be from another planet! If Jesus Christ was the president, he couldn't please most of you!

    So, when was the last time the "next" president ever cleaned up anything? Obama's here to support the NWO and any other choice will be here for the same reason.
