Congressman fails to rebuff question about shooting president

A shocking question was posed to a Georgia congressman during a town hall meeting this week – one that the congressman failed to rebuff, the Athens (Georgia) Banner-Herald reports.
Congressman Paul Broun was asked “Who is going to shoot Obama?
Instead of rebuffing the questioner in the strongest of terms, Broun, according to the newspaper, answered:
The thing is, I know there’s a lot of frustration with this president. We’re going to have an election next year. Hopefully, we’ll elect somebody that’s going to be a conservative, limited-government president that will take a smaller, who will sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Hardly a repudiation – much less a condemnation, of the question.
The Athens Republican’s press secretary told the Banner-Herald that the congressman recognized the question as “inappropriate”  and “moved on.”
