Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert said on “America’s Newsroom” Monday that in admitting on NPR that he had been relying on Harry Reid to block unfriendly legislation, President Obama was like an alcoholic finally admitting he has a problem.
“What I’m excited about is after all these years… now the president has finally admitted they’ve been lying: he, Harry Reid, all those folks who have been saying Republicans were the Party of No. He’s basically admitted in this statement, ‘Yeah, we’ve been the Party of No. But I’ve been able to rely on Harry Reid to say no so I didn’t have to, but we’ve been the ones that really stopped it.’ That’s what I’m hearing in that statement, and I’m glad the president’s finally admitted. Like an alcoholic, the best news is when you finally admit where your problem is.”
