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."

You are looking more like the troll than wideawake. Go back to DU and bash “repugs” to your hearts content.
Even the article lead-in says that he condemned "certain" members of the Tea Party movement, not the movement as a whole - and he did so in a private conversation to boot.
Ken Buck is up for senator (running against Jane Norton)
McInnis (plagarizer guy) is running against Dan Maes (financial reporting problem guy) for the GOP governer spot
That answer reminds me of the UAW member who bragged that he could hang a dash board with 3 screws...even though the design called for 9 screws. Barely enough to do the job. Just enough not to get caught for a long time. And he saved resources, 6 screws, on every dashboard.
I worked on 180 tuna seiners. My job was to repair all the electronics on board. A half-ass job on anything could end the fishing trip at a cost of $30,000 per day. The objective was to do everything 100% so that it could endure a rigorous 6 month fishing trip without a failure. There wasn't such a thing as "adequate" if that level of quality resulted in a scrubbed trip. If the boat had to come back, you could be assured that you wouldn't be getting the repair business when they pulled into port.
I guess the answer is clear.
Tatze belives Obama DID provide unimpeachable proof of his birth certificate, and ..
Tatze believes TEA Partiers are dumbasses.
lol can we vote him out of office.
The bigger issue on the whole BC thing is this; if the people who expect Obama to substantiate his claim with something tangible are dismissed and called Dumb-asses, then he doesn’t really need to support ANY claim with anything.
People should be outraged at all the documents that have been concealed and off-limits.
The fact that he can conceal the truth and that 90% of Americans are OK with that is scary.
Yeah. it's all the nasty medeia's fault for leaking the tape.
WAKE UP! If he hadn't said it, there would be nothing to leak.
If he is fool enough to make such comments to the media to give them such things to leak, just how damned smart is he?
That isn't a knee-jerk reaction. It is an evaluation of intelligence and capability of someone who is running for a position in which every remark they make in front of a camera or microphone has consequence.
If they don't get that 101 type reality of the political arena, they're mincemeat around the savvy politicians in a legislature.
no matter how you slice it the birth certificate issue is a non-starter.
This is congress at issue. These are the people who can stop the obama spending and socialism cold in its tracks.
You might as well be asking candiddates about the yellow fringe on flags.
Do you have reading comprehension issues? You must, because I have said neither of those things on thread.
Seriously, with every post, you look more and more like a DU troll. Now your inventing my thoughts and positions.
If you think everyone, are even 10% of the those that supports the T parties does so over the Birth BS. We know who and where the dumbas* are.
The problem with Jane is - if you look up McCain RINO in the dictionary ... there’s Jane’s picture.
I’m a Republican Committeeman and I still can’t figure out where they dredge these idiots up from.
The exact meaning of this sentence is up for debate. You can see it either that those asking the questions are “dumbasses” or that the the Tea Party is comprised of “dumbasses”. I wouldnt be too confident in declaring his intentions either way. The one “dumbass” move that is not debatable is a GOP candidate commiserating with a Dem Party tracker.
Obama provided all that was requested of him in order to qualify for the presidential run.
Birthers are asking for a do-over.
He's not a coward at all.
A coward is someone who refuses to recognize the truth over what he would prefer. Worse yet, some cowards attack those who threaten their foundation-less insistence when what they believe is challenged.
We would all really like to see Obama run out of office in disgrace, but it's not going to happen by hijacking the campaigns of GOP candidates.
If you buy into the liberal media spin it is, but that's likely not the reality:
"Not even four in 10 people across America believe President Obama's narrative about being born in Hawaii, according to a new poll.
A new 60 MinutesVanity Fair poll shows that only 39 percent of respondents believe Obama was born in Hawaii as he wrote in his book.
The magazine boasted, "A whopping 63 percent very nearly two-thirds of us went out on a limb and stated for the record that we believe in the United States. It's enough to make you proud to be an American or 63 percent proud, at any rate."..."
I don't know. What is it that you plan to swear to do with your hand on a Bible?
Without the rule of law, we can’t solve any of the “bigger problems”.
The rule of law is the crux of all the issues we face. If we back down on that we’ve cut off our own legs and wonder why we can’t stand.
It is up to people like him to raise the issue to the level of a court challenge and like all the others he gives it a pass.
I have basically called you out as an Obama Troll twice.
And I’ve stated you think TEA Partiers are dumbasses.
And twice you replied to my posts. And twice you never refuted them or denied what I said.
Now you want us to believe you ARE NOT a DU troll and you do not believe TEA Partiers are dumbasses?
Too late pal. Your own posts prove who and what you are.
