Hats off to Phil Gingrey!
Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Georgia) walked out on Obama’s outrageous campaign speech yesterday at the National Prayer Breakfast. Obama decided to give a stump speech on socialism for the attendees at the breakfast.
Rome News reported:
Republican Rep. Phil Gingrey (Ga.) walked out of President Obama’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, his spokeswoman confirmed to The Hill. Jen Talaber said the five-term lawmaker “left quietly” in the middle of the president’s remarks.
“He was disturbed and offended by the president’s use of prayer and reflection time for partisan politics and class warfare,” Talaber said. “Rep. Gingrey enjoyed listening to the keynote speaker and found the breakfast to be inspiring until President Obama began politicking.”
At the breakfast, Obama tried to tie some of the proposals from his State of the Union address, such as everyone paying their fair share in taxes, to Biblical teachings.
