Word: 'Barack Hussein Obama'
U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., recently appeared on national television and showed off how he knows practically nothing about civility or Barack Obama.
"But Obama's gonna go around meeting everybody so the world will be a better place. 'Hi, I'm Barack Hussein Obama.'"
â€” Kingston trots out the oft-repeated scare tactic of equating Barack Obama with a deposed dictator on the Feb. 22 "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO.
"Your staff made me take it off. (Laughs) It was too controversial. Actually, I don't know who that person is, but tell her I'm with her 100 percent. I usually do, it depends.â€
â€” Kingston responds to a viewer e-mail on Maherâ€™s show asking why Kingston wasnâ€™t wearing a flag pin after he chided Obama for not wearing one.
â€œI will wear one and I have worn one. But Iâ€™m not making a statement about it.â€
