How could anyone ask that question? At Rep. Paul Broun’s town hall meeting on Tuesday, the Athens congressman asked who had driven the farthest to be there and let the winner ask the first question. To everyone's surprise the question was, 'When is someone going to shoot Obama?'
GASP! After hearing the question from the audience member, Rep. Broun didn't confront or condemn the person asking the question. Instead, Broun showed his frustration with Obama, according to the Banner-Herald. The paper reports that Broun responded to the stunning inquiry as follows:
'The thing is, I know there's a lot of frustration with this President. We're going to have an election next year. Hopefully, we'll elect somebody that's going to be a conservative, limited-government president...who will sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.'
How could Broun respond like that? Broun’s press secretary, Jessica Morris, confirmed that the question was indeed, 'Who is going to shoot Obama?' “Obviously,' said Morris, 'the question was inappropriate, so Congressman Broun moved on.”
