Posted on 07/26/2010 1:11:24 PM PDT by Hawk720
Colorado Republican Senate candidate Ken Buck has once again talked himself into some trouble - this time by calling certain tea-party activists "dumbasses" for questioning the legitimacy of President Obama's birth certificate.
According to the Denver Post, Buck was caught on tape saying in June, "Will you tell those dumbasses at the Tea Party to stop asking questions about birth certificates while I'm on camera." He added, laughing: "God, what am I supposed to do?"
Buck was speaking to a Democratic operative who had secretly recorded the conversation.
Buck, who enjoys strong support from the Tea Party movement, has since somewhat walked back the remarks, though he focused on language, not content.
"I'm not suggesting the language was appropriate," Buck told the Post today. "But after 16 months of being on the campaign trail, I was tired and frustrated that I can't get that message through that we are going to go off a cliff if we don't start dealing with this debt."

Cool. It saved me $100.
And he's absolutely right.
I hope his campain goes down in flames. What has Colorado to lose?
If a Repug can not or will not focus on fundamental issues like Certifigate, then he is useless.
Ken Buck, apparently a dumb-ass, has never looked into it. Relying on hyperbole.
So what don’t they just show me the bc so I can be a smartass?
Who’s the real dumbass, Ken?
So. You think TEA Partiers are dumbasses, huh?
Go back to DU, troll.
Does Michelle know he called her that?
Anyone who trusts the MSM for all their information has no business in a legislature.
Sounds like another Obama Enabler...
Dumbasses are ones who refuse to do anything about a possible usurption of the Constitution by the Commander in Chief...he may not be holding the office legally
I do not understand the attacks on Birthers by GOPers....pandering to the Obama crowd is not going to win elections this time around
I’ve seen some pretty dumb stuff on the Orly threads. Coming from people who might be pretty dumb. Some of them might be Tea Partiers, but I don’t see a relation between the two. Some people are just dumb.
There’s also another thread about this at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2558957/posts
That troll has been around since 1998.
Having a different opinion on what is effective does not make one a troll.
Trust me, I know.
Where do we find such crummy candidates? ............any Ivy League School..........
From his website:
He earned his undergraduate degree from Princeton University
in 1981 and his Juris Doctorate from the University of Wyoming School of
Law in 1985.
The Colorado Republican party approaches the Obamaloon White House in its complete inability to turn on a light bulb.
Ken Buck is one idiot that’s up for gov, the other is a now well known plagiarist (name does not matter - he’s another typical useless public servant).
We’re so screwed.
That fool is going to have a long climb, even in what should have been a relatively easy year.
