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.
