Even though the millions of people that Larry Klayman confidently predicted would attend his anti-Obama gathering yesterday never showed up, at least one speaker thought the event, which attracted well under one hundred people, would have historical significance.
Addressing the rally — which called for a coup to oust President Obama and a “Second American Revolution” — former GOP congressman Bob Barr demanded the House of Representatives consider impeaching the president. Barr, who played a major role in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is running for Congress again and has called for investigations into whether Obama should also face impeachment.
After calling Obama a “scoundrel,” Barr said that the poorly attended rally would be remembered throughout US history as the day the campaign to remove Obama from office was started: “Be it remembered that it started here today, November 19, 2013, just as it did on November 5, 1997, that Americans for generations to come will look back and say, ‘yes, good and faithful servants, you did your duty.’ We thank you and we will carry that torch forever into the future.”
Naturally, his speech ended with a Tea Party activist shouting: “Except Barack Hussein Obama is not the president, he’s a fraud; kick the bum out!”
