Washington, Mar. 6 (ANI): Republican Congressman Paul Broun has said that he is not sure whether President Barack Obama is an American citizen or a Christian, but he is a socialist for sure.
During an interview with Sirius XM host Pete Dominick, Broun was asked if he thought Obama is an "American citizen and a Christian."
Broun first responded, "I'm not going to get involved in that."
But pressed on whether he thought Obama is a citizen, he said: "I don't know."
"Is he a Christian?" Dominick then asked.
"I don't know that. I'm a Christian but only me and the Lord know that for sure," the Georgia congressman responded.
However, he spent much of the rest of the interview attacking Obama as a "socialist."
"I know he is (a socialist). You look at his own writings. He said when he was in college he leaned to Marxist tendencies and is linked to Marxist professors. He joined Marxists clubs. And look at who he's put in his administration, they're devout socialists," Politico quoted Broun, as saying.
"America has to stand up and decide if we want to be a socialist nation or if we're going to be a free nation," he added.
Later, Broun's spokeswoman Debbee Keller clarified: "Dr. Broun did not cast doubt on Obama's religious beliefs or citizenship. When someone else forced the question, he said it wasn't fair to speculate." (ANI)
