Republican congressman accuses Obama of purposefully undermining our national security

And even misunderstands Reagan's stance on nuclear proliferation:
Simply put, President Obama is disadvantaging the United States one step at a time and undermining this country’s national defense on purpose. Whether he is catering to the anti-war leftists or truly doing what he thinks is best for our security, the president is leading this nation down a very dangerous path. [emphasis in the original]
As several have noted, this idiot is accusing the President of treason, and at the same time urging Obama to be more like Reagan. Of course Reagan also signed nuclear arms treaties and tried to reduce their numbers. And never mind that the idiot Republican's followup line essentially undermines his emphatic accusation of purposefully doing this.
or truly doing what he thinks is best for our security

As Steve Benen noted, there seems to be no restrictions on what Republicans can say--no internal stops that suggest that perhaps we are all Americans and can disagree on some of these things. No, Republicans can accuse the President of setting out to harm our economy on purpose (McCain) or even to undermine our national security. The party of torture and rewriting history is also the party of this kind of crap.

At this point, I am abso-fucking-lutely convinced that Congressmen on the right know very fucking well that they are full of shit. But they are unwilling to engage in debate; all they are doing is screaming until they can get back into power. Screaming about every little thing. They know 3/4 of it is total bullshit, but they know that voters aren't informed enough anymore to care (see your previous post).

That is so disingenuous that it makes me want to kick kittens.

I am with you, Smitty. These people know full well that the President is not a traitor, but they know that sells to their base.
