Watch and enjoy, watch and enjoyers! Greta’s got the scoop here:
DECORAH, Iowa – President Obama got into a heated back and forth with a Tea Party activist who demanded to know at the end of a town hall meeting here whether or not Vice President Biden had called members of the Tea Party “terrorists” during the debt ceiling debate.
In public, Obama did not directly answer the question from Tea Party activist Ryan Rhodes about Biden. But Obama fired back that he knows better than anyone what it’s like to be slammed for his political views and was not about to accept a lecture on the topic.
“As someone who’s been called a socialist, not born here, taking away freedoms for providing health care, I’m all for lowering the rhetoric,” Obama said.
Obama did say he would discuss the matter further with Rhodes, founder of the Iowa Tea Party, after the event. And the duo was spotted in an animated conversation a few moments later.
In an interview later with Fox News, Rhodes claimed that the President insisted that Biden had not made the original comment.
Sarah is feeling like me today… sick of the all the left-wing (and some right-wing) hypocrites charges of the Tea Party being “jihadis,” “suicide bombers,” “hobbits,” and “terrorists,” from everyone to the whiney little MSNBC & NY Times’ characters, all the way up to the Vice President. Enough is enough, especially when we were lectured by our Crybaby-In-Chief after the horrible Tucson inicident, that there needed to be a new civility…a “new tone,” as some called it. Yet, who is it that have been the biggest offenders of using this stupid, childisih, and truly insane name-calling when trying to demonize their opponents? The left, of course… trusty “Rules for Radicals” books in-hand.
Having said that, we have had our share of idiocy from some on our side of the aisle. Well, this “hobbit” has also had enough. Enough of opportunists like Romney and all others like him, only coming out to stake their spot when it’s politically expedient. There are a few out there who have “stuck their necks out a mile,” but that list doesn’t include the one person who actually claimed he had. To him, I say “YOU LIE!”
A lot has been said about this book already, and much publicized so far, so I’m going to let this video speak mostly for itself. Tonight on Hannity’s show, “Game Change” authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann were on to discuss some of the more juicy details of the book.
I’m going to let this video speak for itself. Michelle is on to promote her book, “Culture of Corruption.” I’d like to see Tanya Reiman read this panel’s body language. Joy is absolutely apoplectic, and Sherri struggles to speak intelligently.
