Rep. Louie Gohmert talks to Glenn about the gov’t shutdown and a possible Senate run

Glenn has been quite vocal about his hope that Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) will try to unseat Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) in the 2014 mid-term elections. And this morning on radio, Rep. Gohmert joined Glenn to talk about the partial government shutdown and his future plans.

“Let me say hello – let me try this out – to the Senator from Texas Louie Gohmert,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “You asked me if I prayed on it, and the answer is yes. So now I’m going to call you the Senator from Texas. Louie Gohmert. And I accept your acceptance… that you are probably too shy to give.”

Rep. Gohmert was among the Republican congressmen who went to the National Mall yesterday to escort a group of World War II veterans to the WWII memorial that was “closed” because of the partial government shutdown. He was at the Mall again this morning, when he called into the radio program.

“It means more than I think you would ever know that you would have that kind of faith in me,” Rep. Gohmert said. “ But wow, we’ve got Amazing Grace being sung here at the World War II memorial, and I am with a hundred or so veterans.”

Rep. Gohmert was back at the Mall today because the memorials were once again closed. He was there with his fellow congressmen to ensure the visiting veterans had the opportunity to pay tribute to their fallen brothers and sisters.

“They did close it back again today. They had the barricades, yellow tape across. And anyway, magically when all of the veterans showed up, there was not a Park Service person there to prevent anybody from moving the barricades like they did yesterday,” Rep. Gohmert explained. “All you can figure is that somebody intentionally did this to make it difficult for World War II veterans. Just to create pain. Just for political gain. And some reporter stuck a mic in my face and said, ‘Sen. Claire McCaskill says you are only doing this for politics.’ I went, ‘Are you kidding?’ This is for our veterans. Come on, if you want to get politics into this thing, that’s what closing this did.”

Glenn asked Rep. Gohmert if he had heard about the story involving House Speaker John Boehner and his backdoor schemes to ensure Congress was exempt from Obamacare. Though he had not yet heard the story, Rep. Gohmert made his position on the issue quite clear.

“Oh man. Well, I haven’t heard that. But I’ve already said, regardless, the American people don’t get subsidies. I’m not accepting anything,” he said emphatically. “I’ll pay my penalties, which come under Obamacare. I’m not doing that. It’s not right.”

As the 2014 mid-term elections approach, Glenn had a message for the Texas Representative:

“Congressman Gohmert, I will tell you that as you were talking just a few minutes ago, I got an answer to my prayer. And I just want you to know that I don’t think you should worry about money. We live in a time of miracles. If you would just continue to pray for your answer, if that’s the right thing for you to do. Don’t pray about the money. Pray about is this the right thing,” Glenn said in regards to a Senate run. “You are the guy. And it’s high time that we send a message to the Republicans that claim to be on the side of the Constitution and the Republic, and shut them down. Start to do the right thing, no matter who tells us that it can’t happen or we won’t win. As long as we’re on God’s side, who could stand against us?”

    WHAT IS HAPPENING?!

    Louie sounds like he’s 6 tall boys of Steel Reserve deep right now.

    Wow. You know when Glenn is calling Louie fucking Gohmert “the guy,” the Tea Party is completely fucked.

    The United States has the lamest WWII memorials, by the way.

    You’ve said nothing of any intellectual value here.   You’ve said nothing that belongs in the arena of ideas or rationality.  You’re going to respond to me by saying something mean about me, most likely insulting my intellect.  Or you won’t reply at all, which is fine by me.  I’d like you to know that some people see you for who and what you are, an angry low information voter with no life.

    If I lived in his district I wouldn’t hesitate to vote for Louie. We need a congress full of Louie Gohmerts! He is unspoiled by the leftards political wrangling, and they hate him because they can’t deal with truth or sincerity.

  • Victor’s Punishment

    Shut your stupid and ungrateful face, filthy mouthed troll boy. Your judgement is as far off target as your thinking we care about your opinions. They are always laced with profanity, and inane.

  • Victor’s Punishment

    You can take your comment and shove it pal. Gohmert is the most sincere person, and you and your kind despise him for it. Your hatred is the seal of approval!

  • Victor’s Punishment

    Again the fountain of asinine comments overflows.

    Coward? Aren’t you really, really into World of Tanks?

    That’s not a good reason to vote for anyone/thing.

    Just saying.

    you are seeing the world entirely from a picture of half the world against the other half – and that is how wars get started.

    glenn beck teaches this – and that you have ot side with republicans whom he says are in cahoots with ‘liberals’. 

    people need to look for common ground and ways to unite – if you have the mentality of what jesus would have done, then you will see that there is not too many differences b/w liberals and so-called conservatives and that infact these are false and meaningless titles when most americans have most things in common together.

  • greywolfrs

    Nope.

     A very moving message/conversation …and the real message..”As long as your on God’s side, who could stand against us?”  Congressman Gohmert and Glenn Beck’s exchanges really get to the ‘soul’ of things.  Prayers for both of them for doing the right thing.

    I would definitely support Rep. Gohmert for US Senate, but he might also be an excellent replacement for the current House Speaker. Time will tell.

    To be honest it is hard to see a middle ground I wish I could see it but the more I search the more I can’t find it. Maybe clear to you it is clear a little out here in the sticks but not in the world as a whole.

    There isn’t a thing wrong with what you said.  

    Haters will hate on you for whatever you say. 
    Let them.

    Stay intact and true to your beliefs.

    If you’re prone to making stupid statements, I digress.  

    Otherwise, keep on keepin’ on.  Voting for someone because it would make liberal heads explode IS a VALID reason to vote for ANYONE. If the liberals hate a candidate that much, there’s a REAL reason they do. 
    One) They fear them (because…)  
    Two) They know they have no one that can equally rebut/compete with them.
