Texas Congressman continues to bring on the crazy.

In an interview with Virginia talk radio host John Fredericks, Gohmert said he opposed an effort led by Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia to pass a new Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) in the fight against ISIS, saying that “the president has all the authority he could possibly need” in the broad AUMF passed in 2001 and that the proposed new AUMF would “help tie his hands in ways a good president would not need.”

He added that the new AUMF, in addition to giving the president too little authority, would give the president too much authority. “I don’t trust this administration, I don’t want to give them any additional authority that Bush didn’t have,” he said.

“So, thank you very much, Mr. Kaine, but you need to tell your buddy in the Democratic Party to actually start fighting our enemies and quit helping our enemies and help our friends instead and quit worrying about a new AUMF,” Gohmert added. “He would be able to defeat ISIS if he just starts helping our friends and stops helping the enemies.”

“That AUMF, it’s a red herring, it’s a crock,” he continued. “The problem is the president’s on the wrong side. That’s the real problem…

And I think if President Bush had known that he would have a total incompetent follow him that would not even be able to negotiate a status of forces agreement with Iraq and start helping our enemies and just totally put the Middle East in chaos, then he would have to think twice about doing anything if he had known he would have such a total incompetent leader take over after him. That should be the question.” – See more at:

    Onward, Louie Gohmert and his legions of asparagus!

    Actually, I must say, AGAIN….

    What is worse?
    He believes this drivel, or he knows better and directs it to a niche audience who desperately wants to believe it??

    What does the inside of his large intestine look like? Cuz that’s where he’s pulling all this sh!t from. And it really stinks.

      Probably because his head is blocking it.

    What’s a day without a good helping of #TexasDerp? Thank you, Gohmert.

    US press blacks out Israeli defense minister’s citation of
    ‘Nagasaki and Hiroshima’ as model for dealing with Iran.

    Insolent racist cur…he should be flogged.

  8. Chris May 20th, 2015 at 7:00 pm

    It’s impossible to follow the logical loop-de-loops Gohmert lays down anymore.

    I picture his fans saying, “Is he slamming Obama? I can’t tell…he is? Well, alright then! Whoooooooo…yeehawwwwww!”

    Whatever side Goober Gohmert is on is the wrong side.

    Fmr. CIA Deputy Director grilled on Iraq War

    Chris Matthews and former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell have a heated
    discussion about the Bush administration’s pretext for invasion of Iraq
    in 2003, as well as the administration’s implications that Iraq and Al
    Qaeda were connected.

    Chris Matthews – The truth about the Iraq War – 5/20/2015

    is the treachery. This is the lie that sold the war.

    It’s when Dick
    Cheney told the American people that
    Saddam Hussein possessed nuclear

    But how can that 2003 claim come to haunt us today in Iraq?

    David Corn and Eugene Robinson discuss.

    Once again ol’ Louie shows the lack of limits to ‘stupid’ and ‘bat-shit crazy’.

  19. osage May 21st, 2015 at 9:44 am

    We need MORE Republicans like Louie Gohmert to SPEAK THEIR MINDS! Too stupid to know what he’s talking about AND too delusional to know that he’s certifiably INSANE!

  20. Lorraine Easterling May 21st, 2015 at 11:55 am

    A true nut job!!!!!

  21. Maxx44 May 21st, 2015 at 12:53 pm

    Ol’ Louie is the reincarnation of Oz’s scarecrow.

    To paraphrase the advertising slogan of a now-defunct New York electronics store chain, “CRAAZEEE LOUIE! HIS COMMENTS ARE INNNNNSAAAAAANE!”
