|Colo. Tea Party Gubernatorial candidate Tom "Bozo" Tancredo: UK Daily Mail|
President Barack Obama is a bigger threat to the United States than Al Qaeda or terrorism, Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo has claimed.
The former Congressman made the comments while campaigning in Canon City Tuesday.
Tancredo said that Obama posed a threat to the Constitution, saying: 'It's not Al Qaeda, it's the guy sitting in the White House.'
Tancredo also said he believes Obama and Democratic Colorado gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper are 'kindred spirits.'
Tancredo has a reputation for controversial comments, including a suggestion that the United States bomb Islam's holy sites if attacked by nuclear weapons.
The former Republican congressman is running on the American Constitution Party ticket.
Tom Tancredo is quick to admit he brings plenty of baggage to the Colorado governor's race.
He once called Miami a 'Third World country.'
During President George W Bush's administration, he got thrown out of the White House for suggesting Bush was soft on illegal immigration.
And he once refused to take part in a presidential debate because it was on a Spanish-language network.
