Outgoing GOP rep Bob Inglis: What happened to “credible” conservatives?

“I don’t call him a socialist because he’s not,” he said. “I don’t doubt that he was born in Hawaii because he was. I don’t call him a Muslim because he says he’s a Christian. And I didn’t say anything about death panels because there weren’t any in that health care bill.”

Inglis said he disagreed with Obama on a number of policy issues, “but I don’t need to join in this hatred of the man.”

“I believe if you’re going to lead a credible conservative movement, you got to start with credible information,” he said. “…I’m a conservative with better ideas, and I can serve the country by presenting those ideas and being credible not attacking him.”
