Rep. Dan Landry (R-LA) rips invitation to Obama White House into tiny pieces, lights the pieces on fire, then urinates all over them

Well, metaphorically speaking, that is.

A freshman GOP lawmaker rejected an invitation to the White House on Wednesday, saying he didn’t want to be “lectured” by President Obama… Rep. Jeff Landry (La.) said … “I don’t intend to spend my morning being lectured to by a president whose failed policies have put our children and grandchildren in a huge burden of debt.”

Landry said he would not sit down with Obama to negotiate on a deficit reduction compromise until Obama produces his own budget plan… “Until the president produces a responsible deficit reduction plan, I’m not going to the White House to negotiate with myself. Our conference has put out for months where we would start the process…”

…Landry also criticized Obama for neglecting to meet with the Louisiana delegation about a drilling moratorium off the Gulf of Mexico… “The President has done nothing, just like he has for the people of the Gulf Coast… For months, the Louisiana delegation has sent the president numerous requests to meet with him or his chief of staff concerning the de facto moratorium issued in the Gulf of Mexico, a de facto moratorium that has driven gas prices up and now threatens to derail economic recovery; the president hasn’t even had the courtesy to write us a note back… [this meeting is just] political grandstanding” on Obama’s part.

“I refuse to partake in his political grandstanding that will ultimately do nothing for debt reduction and job creation,” Landry said.

As Darren ‘Wall Street’ Bettencourt said of ‘The Transporter’, “Hmmm, I like him.”

This is one GOP freshman with stones and, for that, we salute you, Congressman. That is what you call speaking truth to power.
