Speaking at a campaign rally Thursday for Colorado Senate candidate Ken Buck, former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) called President Barack Obama the greatest threat facing America today.

After recalling the nuclear threat from the former Soviet Union, Tancredo said, “We had that threat and we survived it. Later we found out we had another threat to our way of life and that was al-Qaeda. We found that out on 9/11.”

Tancredo continued, “But I firmly believe this–it’s not just, you know, sort of a dramatic statement that a person would make to get press or something, or ink. I believe this with all my heart. The greatest threat to the United States today, the greatest threat to our liberty, the greatest threat to the Constitution of the United States, the greatest threat to our way of life, everything we believe in, the greatest threat to the country that was put together by the founding fathers is the guy that is in the White House today.”

On a conference call with reporters after the event, Buck denounced Tancredo’s remarks and said he does not view President Obama as the nation’s greatest threat.

“I was surprised when Tom said that,” Buck said. “I think he tends to exaggerate sometimes.”

Of President Obama, Buck said, “I respect him as our leader.”

Buck faces a Republican primary against former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton.
