You know the jobs bill President Obama has been exhorting Congress to pass “right away”? The “American Jobs Act”?
Congressman Louie Gohmert introduced a two-page bill before any Democrat had introduced the President’s job bill and titled it “The American Jobs Act of 2011”.
I’m not shitting you. This childish piece of Republican excrement took the name that President Obama had already titled his bill and used it for his own bill. All his bill does is repeal the federal corporate income tax (which is obviously going NOWHERE.)
It’s stunning. This man is a U.S. Congressman and he’s is literally acting like a child. A petulant, mischievous child who can only fight by cheating because he’s not bright enough to compete using his intellect.
The level of disrespect that this represents is on par with Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” moment and John Boehner’s unprecedented refusal to honor President Obama’s request to convene a joint session of Congress for his jobs speech. No president in the history of this country has ever, EVER experienced this level of disrespect, much less having to deal with it repeatedly.
This is racism, pure and simple and needs to be called that publicly by every single Democrat in this country.
I. Am. Disgusted.
