In the Republican runoff for the U.S. Senate, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst has been breaking his back – and destroying his credibility trying to prove that he is politically goofier than his tea party opponent, Ted Cruz. But Dewhurst really popped some brain cells yesterday with an Obamabashing diatribe he posted on his campaign website as the president was visiting Texas.
Among all the other hyperbole, Dewhurst said flat out, “President Obama is the most serious threat to America since World War II.”
Pitiful, even by today’s political substandards.
Could it be possible that the man who would be a United States senator has forgotten about all those Cold War nuclear missiles aimed at America during his childhood? Or, more recently, has he forgotten about the greeddriven financial meltdown on Wall Street that predated President Obama’s watch and the resulting recession that Obama inherited from a Republican predecessor we all know something about?
Dewhurst must have even forgotten about the terrorist attacks of September 11 and Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind them and, until recently, America’s No. 1 enemy. And, it obviously has slipped his mind that Bin Laden is no longer a threat to anybody because President Obama gave the order to take him out.
Dewhurst is in need of some remedial history classes. He can be grateful he doesn’t have to take any STAAR endofcourse exams in American history, but he should be embarrassed, nevertheless.
