Idaho Republican Candidate For Gov. Jokes About “Hunting” Obama

Posted by | August 27, 2009 18:20 | Filed under: Top Stories

Rex Rammell (right), a former elk rancher who is challenging Idaho’s governor, C. L. “Butch” Otter in next May’s GOP primary, said he was only kidding when he said he’d buy a license to hunt President Obama during a rally in Twin Falls.


Talk at the meeting turned to the state’s planned wolf hunt, for which hunters must purchase an $11.50 wolf tag. When an audience member shouted a question about “Obama tags,” Rammell responded, “The Obama tags? We’d buy some of those.”


Rammell has quite a fantastic sense of humor.


“I was just being sarcastic. That was just a joke,” Rammell said. “I would never support him being assassinated.


“She kind of caught me off guard, to be honest with you.”
