Huelskamp slams Obama, Clinton in 140 characters
U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, is attracting some national media attention for a tweet he wrote yesterday that slams both Presidents Obama and Clinton.
After a House Republican meeting on immigration reform, Huelskamp tweeted: "Most House Rs agree w/ most Senate Rs and Americans. Trusting Obama w/ border security is like trusting Bill Clinton w/ your daughter."
Later on NBC News he described the remark as "offhand" but repeated it.
In June, Politico reported that Huelskamp used a variation of the line, saying, “The idea of letting this administration define border security is like letting Bill Clinton define sexual relations.”
