Rep. Trent Franks (R-Arizona): Obama's Appointments Dangerous

Russ Jones - OneNewsNow - 8/10/2010 7:00:00 AM From Elena Kagan's nomination and subsequent confirmation to the Supreme Court, to the recent passage healthcare reforms, a sitting congressman says President Obama is the greatest threat to the United States Constitution -- and one the nation's worst enemies.

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Arizona) tells OneNewsNow that America's enemy is not as much outside itself, but within its own borders. "It's always the water on the inside of the ship that's sinks it," he says. "And Barack Obama, I have to tell you, is water on the inside of the ship of America."

The Republican lawmaker further claims Obama's appointments to the Supreme Court pose the greatest threat to the fundamental beliefs and way of life for most U.S. citizens.

"I don't know if there's anything happening in America that is more dangerous to the foundation of the republic than appointments by Barack Obama to the bench," he laments.

Franks is not alone in his criticism. Former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo (Colorado) recently said on ABC News the progressive-liberal movement poses a bigger threat to the U.S. than does al-Qaeda or Iran
