Huelskamp needs to stop grandstanding

From JOHN J. MESH, posted in The Wichita Eagle:

As a Hutchinson native, I was disgusted by comments by U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler.
Huelskamp criticized President (Barack) Obama for politicizing the military when he highlighted Cory Remsburg, an Army Ranger who was a guest of first lady Michelle Obama. Remsburg, who was nearly killed in Afghanistan during one of his 10 deployments, rose slowly from his seat and was greeted by long and thunderous applause from the president and lawmakers.
Huelskamp tweeted that Obama was acting like an imperial president, a king, that his executive orders were “dictates,” and that he was lawless. Has Huelskamp ever read the part of the Constitution that gives the president expanded powers? Obama had to resort to executive orders because of Huelskamp and the obstructionist wing of the GOP.
Huelskamp is another one of these off-his-rocker tea partiers. When interviewed on MSNBC by Rachel Maddow, he wouldn’t answer her questions directly.
It’s about time Huelskamp started listening to the people in his district
— all of them, including those who didn’t vote for him — instead of grandstanding on Twitter, on WorldNetDaily and even on MSNBC.
