barrett speaking

In case we haven’t made it abundantly clear, we can’t stand U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett. Having said that, “blind hogs” occasionally do manage to locate acorns from time-to-time, and Barrett hit the nail on the head with his assessment of U.S. President Barack Obama being award the Nobel Peace Prize.

“Congratulations to President Obama on his prize,” Barrett said in an email released from his gubernatorial campaign.  “I’m not sure what the international community loved best; his waffling on Afghanistan, pulling defense missiles out of Eastern Europe, turning his back on freedom fighters in Honduras, coddling Castro, siding with Palestinians against Israel, or almost getting tough on Iran.  The world may love it, but following in the footsteps of Jimmy Carter is not where America needs to go.”
