    Tancredo: First Lady Wanted To Ban Christmas Artifacts At The White House | TPMDC


    Tom Tancredo isn't going away. The former congressman and one-time presidential candidate may have upended the Colorado gubernatorial race with his third-party run, but he's still not shy to air his controversial views on national issues. In a phone interview with TPM, Tancredo discussed the gubernatorial race, the Cordoba House project, and what he really fears about Obama. He also referenced a long-standing urban legend about the Obamas' supposed war on Christmas.

    "I remember a little thing, like Ms. Obama saying she didn't want any Christian artifacts in the White House during Christmas time," Tancredo said. Another problem, Tancredo said, is "hosting Ramadan events there."

    Tancredo's recitation of the urban myth about Michelle Obama disdaining Christmas is just one of several instance of Tancredo ascribing an otherness to the Obamas.

    Like others that have a following, his lies promote evil. Political differances are good politics, this kind of lie is a corrosive acid on the politics of this nation.

    Tancredo is an example of that branch of the Republican party that is playing to the Far Right and is driving away your clear thinking Republican and Independent.



    Good.
