A Big Misunderstanding

Via TPM:

A Republican Missouri official said that she meant “no ill intent” toward President Obama when she asked on her Facebook page if the U.S. military was able to oust the president.

In a Facebook post last week, Jefferson County Recorder of Deeds Debbie Dunnegan referred to Obama as “our domestic enemy,” according to a screenshot published by Progress Missouri.

“I have a question for all my friends who have served or are currently serving in our military … having not put on a uniform nor taken any type military oath, there has to be something that I am just not aware of. But I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy. I know he is supposedly the commander in chief, but the constitution gives you the authority,” she wrote in the post. “What am I missing? Thank you for your bravery and may God keep you safe.”

Dunnegan, who is up for re-election in November, said that her question was taken out of context, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“Something innocent and simple got twisted into a disaster because it’s an election,” she said. “I meant no ill intent toward the president. I meant no ill intent toward anybody.”

All she did was call for the violent overthrow of the duly elected president.  It’s not like she was wondering why someone hasn’t killed him or anything.  What’s the big deal?

6 barks and woofs on “A Big Misunderstanding

  1. “I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy.”

    Shorter: TABMITWH.

  2. Yeah, if the President doesn’t follow the Constitution we should overthrow him in an unconstitutional coup d’état. That makes sense.

    • Well, they tried impeachment with Clinton, and that didn’t work so well for them; so now they’re looking at other “remedies.”

      Then again, if you listen to Wingnut Wireless, you’re constantly told that BHO is importing gay unwed-parent ebola-infected jihadis from Liberia through Mexico to infect all Good Right-Thinking Caucasian Xtian Hetero Patriotic Real Ahmurrcans™ before shipping them all off to FEMA camps for “processing,” so suggesting taking up arms against that does have a certain funhouse-mirror symmetry.

  3. I get it! Make outrageous statements and ask questions that border on threats to the President and the stability of this country and then say that is not to what we meant.
