At a rally for Tea Party darling and Republican senatorial candidate Ken Buck, former Congressman Tom Tancredo called Barack Obama the greatest threat America has ever faced. Ever. Including al Qaeda and the Soviet Union.
Everything is at stake here. Everything. I firmly believe with all my heart, you guys, that, although we have had many threats to our nation. We have gone through a whole lot of things, and survived a many things… But nothing, I do not believe, not the Soviet Union during that 35-year period leading up to the fall of the Soviet Union thanks to Ronald Reagan… We had that threat, we survived it. Later we found out we had another threat to our way of life and that was al-Qaeda… But I firmly believe this… The greatest threat to the United States today, the greatest threat to our liberty, the greatest threat to the Constitution of the United States, the greatest threat to our way of life; everything we believe in. The greatest threat to the country that our founding fathers put together is the man that’s sitting in the White House today.
