The company McCrory and Tillis are keeping

North Carolina Republicans, including Governor Pat McCrory and U.S. Senator-elect Thom Tillis, gathered in Asheville this past weekend to listen to former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay hold forth at an annual event held by former North Carolina Congressman Charles Taylor.

News stories from the event report that Delay called President Obama names as a part of his presentation.

“He doesn’t lie about being a Marxist. He’s proud of it. In fact, I think he’s a Muslim, but he definitely is a Marxist.”

Wonder if the governor and the new Senator agree, since they sat idly by while DeLay was spewing his nonsense. Either way, it’s nice company that McCrory and Tillis are keeping.

    Why would anyone with eyes, ears and a brain object to Obama being called a Marxist. Surely he is. He has never built or managed anything at risk, he has never created anything that profited anyone, and he believes the Government is the answer to everything.

    That is not really calling him a name, it is describing his world view/political affiliation. And if it is the truth, it is not really name calling.

    Looks like the wackos are out in force on this one! Seriously folks, when you post a bunch of foaming at the mouth crazy talk, how can ANY of your comments EVER be taken seriously? Delay is a convicted felon, President Obama is not.

    The Party of Hate in full view for all to see…

    I do hope you get some help for your irrational hatred.
