Broun riles up crowd at Tea Party meeting in Loganville

Posted: Sunday, March 18, 2012 12:00 am

Exhorting the crowd of more than 50 people that only they could effect change in American politics, U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, R-Watkinsville, stopped in Loganville to speak with the Walton County Tea Party Patriots.

Broun, District 10 representative, will soon represent Walton County after the redistricting takes effect this fall, and he’s already stopping by to get to know his constituents leading up to the November election.

    Broun is so hated in Athens that his advisors tell him to avoid ever taking questions there. As we all know Broun is not a man who knows how to answer questions without pleading the 5th.

    You can rail against him all you like, but I think he's a shoo-in for re-election. They love him in Athens, which is the heaviest population center in this district. Walton's votes will count, of course, but won't be enough to swing it either way.

    I assume the posters below would be okay if it was Obama speaking at Jeremiah Wright's church.

    Sounds great to me. Where does the constitution separate church from state? I'll be glad when liberal freaks are run out of America. Until then, Thank You Mr. Broun for speaking the truth and you have every right to do so in CHURCH. God Bless America!, unless you're Obama, then it's God Dam_ America!

    I'm sure they had to call in a Haz Mat team to clear the manure spread by Broun.

    I look SO forward to running this halfwit Jesus freak out of office

    Food for thought:

    Before our Texas oilman president "liberated" Iraq, we were paying $1.50 a gallon for gas.

    George Bush, too, was guided by his faith. He had weekly meetings with Ted Haggard to keep his guiding light illuminated.

    Whatever happened to the separation of church and state? It was inappropriate to have this political meeting at a church. It doesn't matter whether what he said was right or wrong; the place was wrong.
