Editor's note: A GOP lawmaker has resurrected a misstatement made by then-Sen. Obama on the campaign trail. Anderson Cooper reports.

    Pres. Obama did more for the Gay people then any president and you still complaining. Maybe he became a christian and change his position 1996. Why do you have Paul B. and this other man who don't know nothing about the pres. Obama. Guessing he need to do. Please talk to someone he knows. I know you trying to make something like Romney. Romney change his mind on a lot things. this is wrong. The talk about this in the primary. Most black people against gay marriage. But some are changing their mines and the way gay people complain about the president the are going to make people up set.

    Gohmert can strike Texas from that number of States because according to Governor Rick Perry Texas will sucede. What's worst holding a political gathering in order to form a coup to sucede, that's what Perry did and that Mr. Gohmert is treason.

    Perhaps it is just me, but it appears that the GOP (especially congress) is more interested in opposing all things Obama than it is in actually doing anything worthwhile (i.e. their jobs maybe?).

    Mr. Gohmert is the extreme and illustrates that Texas is not simply "...like a whole other country." but more like a whole other planet.

    After seeing Anderson Cooper report and attempt to interview the good Representative from Texas my faith in politicians, especially that of the GOP dropped several rungs. By all means Obama may have his faults but to dream up this sort of tripe goes beyond absurdity.

    As far as the "57" slip, it might well have referred to the H.J. Heinz Corporattion (i.e. 57 Varieties)

    Maybe Obama is actually conspiring with the Pickle producers. Perhaps we should start searching for improvised gerkin devices. Wait a minute, PICKLE – KOSHER

    Some one tell Gohmert, the pickle plot is thickening.
