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.”

I'm not worried about what "Tiny" Tim tweets about the President and Bill Clinton. They can take care of themselves and they've stood up to worse from much better people.

No, junior high-level, 140 character slams don't rattle me. Timmy stinks because of what he does to working class and poor people 24/7, 365 days a year.

I still think he is bitter about being removed from the House Budget and Agriculture committee.

But border security and deportations are up under Obama, so in addition to being a classless act, it is also a lie.

Huelskamp is a Joke. Surely Kansans in the 1st district will vote this guy out of office. If not, western Kansas is a joke too.

Little Timmy needs some new material. This is the same hypocrite that slams government spending while "Huelskamp Farms" has reeled in hundreds of thousands of dollars in farm subsidies. Nobody cares what Little Timmy says about anything.

Trusting Obama w/ border security is like trusting Bob Schumm with BBQ.

Wow, playground humor. That really makes Kansas look good. On the other hand, it's not as though anyone thought that Kansas was a center for higher thought anyway.
