SATURDAY PM UPDATE: Well, that’s the bottom, folks. The Colorado Independent’s Joseph Boven reports that Ken Buck has given the whole idea of World War II, 9/11 and nuclear annihilation some thought and changed his mind: Obama’s worse.
Speaking after Tancredo at the Conservative Western Summit on Saturday, where Tancredo reiterated statements made at a Buck supporter barbecue on Thursday, Weld County District Attorney Buck reversed his position.
“The other day my good friend and supporter Tom Tancredo said that the greatest threat to this country is the man who occupies the White House, Barack Obama,” Buck said Saturday. “There is a lot of truth in what Tom Tancredo says.”
When questioned as to whether Barack Obama is indeed the biggest threat to the United States, Buck originally said on Thursday: “”I think he has created a new word. It is called a ‘Tancredoism.’ I don’t agree. I think that there are a lot of threats in this country. I don’t think that the man in the White House is the greatest threat to this country at all.”
FRIDAY PM UPDATE: Just posted to Buck’s opponent Jane Norton’s Facebook page–folks, at long last, we are now officially speechless.
Original post follows–yes, really. Jane Norton has one-upped Tom Tancredo.
UPDATE: KDVR Fox 31’s video after the jump.
Fresh video from today’s Ken Buck Senate campaign rally, featuring South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint. With, by a country mile, the most memorable quotes supplied by Tom Tancredo:
“I cannot possibly, I guess, add to anything that’s been said here,” begins Tancredo.
As it turns out, he was wrong.
To paraphrase, for those of you who can’t see the video, Tancredo says–in no uncertain terms or language–that President Barack Obama is the single greatest threat that the United States has ever faced. Tancredo says this after listing off a number of things, including both World Wars, the Cold War, Al Qaida and the Depression, that the U.S. has seen over the past century. None of these things, he says, were ‘greater threats’ than President Obama. Our own President, says Tancredo, is a greater threat to the United States than Nazis. Or commies. Or nuclear annihilation.
