Tea Party Member Confronts Obama on Biden’s ‘Terrorist’ Smear

“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.“
B. Hussein Obama during the 2008 campaign.

During Obama’s Magical Misery Tour stop in Iowa, Tea Party activist Ryan Rhodes confronted Obama over DemLeft rhetoric, particularly from Biden.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uqy5rwX2Io8&feature

The question: “How can you bring people together when your VP called the Tea Party ‘terrorists’?

Obama, after about 5 minutes of stuttering, stammering, and avoiding the direct question:

“I absolutely agree that everbody needs to try to tone down the rhetoric. Now in fairness, since I’ve been called a socialist who wasn’t born in this country, who is destroying America, and taking away its freedoms, because I passed a healthcare bill, you know I’m all for lowering the uh, rhetoric.”

In an interview later with Fox News, Rhodes claimed that the president had insisted that Biden had not made the original comment.

“He just denied it. He said the vice president didn’t make any of those assertions,” Rhodes said. “If he doesn’t want to even admit what was on TV nationally — all over the place — then how can you have a conversation?”

Rhodes added that Obama brushed him aside. “Then he said, ‘We can’t have a conversation because you’re saying I called you a terrorist,’” recalled Rhodes. “The fact is it demonstrates the deep divide that he is unwilling to negotiate without going after the other side. The whole day was about going after Republicans and talking about how unreasonable they are.”

The private conversation between Rhodes and Obama was partially picked up by a TV camera, but the audio was tough to make out. Obama in general seemed to be saying the incident with Biden was misconstrued and that if Rhodes wanted to insist that the word “terrorist” was used then they were never going to see eye to eye.

This narcissistic, arrogant shitbag just cannot get over himself. The big difference, Obama: You ARE a socialist.  As a matter of fact, you’re a Marxist with like minded friends, associates, and cabinet appointees.

Just because he and his Dem majority in Congress trampled all over the Constitution doesn’t mean We the People should be angry.

THE ONE convieniently omits the vile, obscene, frothing responses from his own party when Americans objected to the socialist, unconstitutional ObamaCare, the massive spending, the atrocious bailouts, the so-called ‘stimulus’, the government takeover of GM and Chrysler, and the intrusion into free speech.  The Dems really showed their asses at townhall meetings during the Obamacare debate, and soon started hiding from their constituents.

We speak out against the Dems’ attempt at absorbing control of our health care, and in return we are called”white supremacists”, “racist”, “evil”, “hate mongers” and unbelievably, “terrorists“.

Terrorism is something Obama knows a lot about.

I’d have confronted his scrawny ass with a lot more questions.

BTW: While the Dems are busy calling Tea Party patriots “terrorists”, there are some real terrorists—anarchists, communists, and muslims—burning London to ashes:

H/T American Glob, for the video.

    1. I won’t bother to publish your latest bat-shit crazy conspiracy theories. Instead, I’ll refer you to two relevant posts to read:

    2. Bubba Clinton failed to get Bin Laden several times:

    How many times Clinton lost Bin Laden
    The Clinton administration:
    1. Did not follow-up on the attempted bombing of Aden marines in Yemen.

    2. Shut the CIA out of the 1993 WTC bombing investigation, hamstringing their effort to capture bin Laden.

    3. Had Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, a key bin Laden lieutenant, slip through their fingers in Qatar.

    4. Did not militarily react to the al Qaeda bombing in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

    5. Did not accept the Sudanese offer to turn bin Laden.

    6. Did not follow-up on another offer from Sudan through a private back channel.

    7. Objected to Northern Alliance efforts to assassinate bin Laden in Afghanistan.

    8. Decided against using special forces to take down bin Laden in Afghanistan.

    9. Did not take an opportunity to take into custody two al Qaeda operatives involved in the East African embassy bombings. In another little scoop, I am able to show that Sudan arrested these two terrorists and offered them to the FBI. The Clinton administration declined to pick them up and they were later allowed to return to Pakistan.

    10. Ordered an ineffectual, token missile strike against a Sudanese pharmaceutical factory.

    11. Clumsily tipped off Pakistani officials sympathetic to bin Laden before a planned missile strike against bin Laden on August 20, 1998. Bin Laden left the camp with only minutes to spare.

    12-14. Three times, Clinton hesitated or deferred in ordering missile strikes against bin Laden in 1999 and 2000.

    15. When they finally launched and armed the Predator spy drone plane, which captured amazing live video images of bin Laden, the Clinton administration no longer had military assets in place to strike the archterrorist.

    16. Did not order a retaliatory strike on bin Laden for the murderous attack on the USS Cole.

    3. As for George W. Bush, the only complaint I have is that he didn’t go far enough. Bin Laden fled to Pakistan after we almost killed his smelly ass at Tora Bora, and that’s where he stayed until we finally got him. I’d have flattened at least 3/4ths of the Middle East on 12 September 2001, with MOABs and neutron bombs. But I’m a former Soldier and Iraq war veteran, not a politician.

  2. THE TEA PARTY IS AMERICAN TERRORIST WITH A PLAN TO SPREAD HATRED AND DIVIDE THE COUNTRY
    You remember the republicans… the people who in spite of irrefutable facts, cling to beliefs such as evolution is not a fact. They think Climate change is a liberal invention. Even after disproved, they cling to lies such as the Tea party favorite, ‘big government takeover’, Frank luntz’s “socialism” lie, birtherism, the old fav ‘Bush didn’t lie us into a war and crash the economy, or the corporatist wing of the GOP’s favorite lie, ‘ LOWERING TAXES ON CORPORATIONS AND THE RICH CREATES JOBS!!! Even though the facts are that Bush’s eight years of lowering corporate taxes did not create jobs! Trickle down economics is, as H. Bush said… voodoo economics.

    Unfortunately, some of these ignorant, angry types have been elected to congress…you know the ones. They wail about the constitution even though they have no clue what it is and usually confuse it with the declaration or some other document. However, they have seized control of the GOP and republicans are flip flopping and scurrying to the right to appease them… in short, the few moderate republicans remaining are now terrified and doing and saying anything to meet the Tea party purity test. It is useless to try and debate these republicans or expect any honest effort to compromise. They are simply intent on destroying president Obama and if that means causing an economic disaster and causing pain for millions of Americans they are perfectly willing.

    As the GOP tries to convince you that giving billions in tax breaks and taxpayer funded giveaways to oil companies while they cut help for the old, the sick, the poor and children is sound policy, here are a few facts to chew on.

    Between 2007 and 2009 wall street profits went up 720%

    The top 50 hedge fund managers made over one billion dollars each

    the top 1% of americans are in possession of 42.9 % of our wealth

    the bottom 80% of americans holding only 7 % of our wealth

    loopholes allow many corporations to pay NO taxes.

    After oil companies record profits we still pay subsidies to them… some actually get refunds (paid by the American taxpayer).

    Republicans are calling for working americans to pay for the mess wall street and the banks created.

    We have the most unequal distribution of wealth of any developed country. More and more of the middle class join the ranks of the poor every day as 80% of wealth has gone to the top 1% over the last 25 years.

    Several polls show a majority of Americans want to tax corporations and the rich. A huge majority oppose touching medicare or social security. Yet the Tbagger minority a.k.a. the GOP simply choose to ignore the will of the people and push their corporate agenda and intimidate democrats! As usual.

    Some republicans like Orin Hatch have actually said the poor need to get jobs and start paying their fair share! Mitch McConnell said we can’t raise taxes on corporations who “are struggling” even though the truth is corporations are reporting record profits. But according to republicans, the wall street fat cats who caused the economic meltdown that destroyed jobs should get even lower taxes. Of course republicans hypocritically like to say they are against raising “peoples” taxes…which is code for raising the top 2% taxes. I guess since the SCOTUS ‘citizens united’ decision, corporations are considered people.

    1. Tyrone:

      I’m going to dissect your stupidity, one point at a time.

      “THE TEA PARTY IS AMERICAN TERRORIST WITH A PLAN TO SPREAD HATRED AND DIVIDE THE COUNTRY”

      The Tea Party is comprised of a cross-section of Americans from all walks of life.

      Compare and contrast Tea Party rallies with the leftwingnut protests:
      http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2010/04/27/the-lefts-protests-vs-the-tea-parties/

      This country isn’t as “divided” as the Dems would love you to believe. Their reprehensible behavior resulted in UNITING a large majority of Americans who are fed up with what’s happening in Washington. You can thank your leftwing Dem pals for that. As soon as we voiced our objection to ObamaCare, they started spewing invectives and epithets of “nazi” , “racist”, and “evil mongers” at their own constituents. When we protested against the Democratic push for government-controlled health care, we were told by our own elected officials to “sit down and shut up.” Any time the Left loses the war of ideas they resort to ad hominum attacks and violence. The Dems have mounted an unprecedented attack on ordinary Americans from all walks of life who object to Obama’s socialist, unconstitutional agenda. This is how the Dems roll: Don’t like ObamaCare? “YOU’RE A TERRORIST!” Don’t care for the massive growing debt, the tax increases, penalties for not buying government-controlled health care insurance, and unfair burden on future generations? Then you’re a ” ‘bitter, gun-clinging, racist!’. Don’t like Obama’s arrogance, hubris, abuse of power, anti-free market tactics, and wasteful bailouts and so-called ‘stimulus’? Then, “you hate Obama because he’s our first Black President, you racist!” That’s when we took off the proverbial kid gloves and put on the brass knuckles. They rammed ObamaCare through Congress, shutting out debate with Republicans and the American people. We went to the ballot box and kicked the bastards to the curb. They deserved it.

      I’m willing to bet you’ve NEVER read the constitution, and have no clue as to why ObamaCare is unconstitutional. Here’s your clue, sweetpea:
      ObamaCare is an unconstituional government power grab. He is trying to create a commerce (i.e. “activity) which is not allowed (http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2010/01/04/why-obamacare-is-unconstitutional/) by the Constitution. There’s nothing remotely “individual” about the ObamaCare mandate. The Constitution does not give Congress the power to require that Americans purchase government mandated services, including health insurance. Nor does it permit the federal government to force citizens to use their own money to purchase government mandated services. Period.

      The Commerce Clause, which the Dems used as justification for their health care mandate, has been twisted and manipulated to justify the use of federal laws that have little to do with interstate commerce.: http://topics.law.cornell.edu/wex/commerce_clause
      The clause established federal rules to ensure fair practices in the trade of goods across state boundaries. It has nothing to do with a government-created commerce which forces citizens, by law, to purchase said commerce.

      Speaking of “ignorant, angry types”, nobody does it better than Obama’s union pals:

      By the way, Obama’s “stimulus” cost more than the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined:

      “The mess wall street and the banks created”?

      You have a crap factory for a brain.

      The reason our economy is in such deplorable shape, is because of the wild-assed spending that keeps busting through whatever debt ceiling we have, from administration to administration. Obama took our country to hell in a socialist handbasket with hostile government-forced takeovers of 2/3rds of the auto industry and the engineered collapse of the banking infrastructure. To justify his tactics, he holds up seniors and the disabled as a fear factor. We are in serious trouble. We lost our AAA rating with Standard and Poors for a good reason. Any country that borrows and spends its way to a massive debt that exceeds its GDP, doesn’t deserve a high credit rating. The last time we lost our high credit rating was just after Pearl Harbor. Obama has created his own Pearl Harbor with a kamakazi-style attack on our Democratic Republic. His visceral hatred for successful entrepreneurs and support for union thugs—not the working people who struggle through life under the strain of increasing government intrusion—is reflected in every one of his domestic policies. A $14 trillion debt, uncontrolled borrowing and spending, higher taxes on the horizon, the economy in a nosedive, high unemployment, a lengthy history of government mismanagement, and a Marxist regime that refuses to stop gouging people for their class war. The train wreck has to stop.

      Here are some facts to counter your class war rhetoric:
      Obama likes to talk about raising taxes on “millionaires and billionaires.” If two career people get married and make $200,000 a year they’ll get hit with Obama’s tax hike on the rich. Why? Because they can make over $250,000 a year. They are not “millionaires or billionaires.”
      The top 1% of taxpayers earn about 20% of the income and yet they pay 40% of all income taxes collected.
      The top 5% of taxpayers (those earning at least $159,610) pay more in taxes than the remaining 95% of taxpayers combined.
      More than half of Americans, 51%, don’t even pay income taxes.
      Middle class Americans are not in the top 5% of taxpayers earning $159,610. Yet that 5% pays more in taxes than the other 95%, but Obama is worried that middle class Americans are going to “bear the entire burden”? You can’t reason with this type of stupidity.
      More facts:
      From the Center for Individual Freedom: (http://www.cfif.org/v/index.php/commentary/43-taxes-and-economy/985-us-tipping-point-51-of-households-now-pay-no-income-taxes)
      In 1980, the top income tax rate was 70%. The top rate is now half that, at 35%, yet the portion of the nation’s income taxes paid by the top 1% has more than doubled from 19% to 38%.

      Walter Williams explains the economic effects of the luxury tax imposed on the early 1990s: (http://cnsnews.com/commentary/article/ignorance-stupidity-or-connivance) Back then, Congress told us that the luxury tax on boats, aircraft and jewelry would raise $31 million in revenue a year. Instead, the tax destroyed 330 jobs in jewelry manufacturing and 1,470 in the aircraft industry, in addition to the thousands destroyed in the yacht industry. Those job losses cost the government a total of $24.2 million in unemployment benefits and lost income tax revenues. The net effect of the luxury tax was a loss of $7.6 million in fiscal 1991, which means Congress’ projection was off by $38.6 million. The Joint Economic Committee concluded that the value of jobs lost in just the first six months of the luxury tax was $159.6 million.

      “Several polls show a majority of Americans want to tax corporations and the rich. A huge majority oppose touching medicare or social security. Yet the Tbagger minority a.k.a. the GOP simply choose to ignore the will of the people and push their corporate agenda and intimidate democrats! As usual.”

      Really, douchebagger? Check out these polls:
      The opposition to B. Hussein’s tax/spend orgy is about 2 to 1: http://hotair.com/archives/2011/07/13/gallup-americans-paying-attention-oppose-debt-ceiling-increase-almost-2-1/

      Bottom line:
      America has devolved into a society that no longer believes in the rugged individualism, courage, and self-determination that made us a once great nation. A large part of the population is comprised of an able-bodied but lazy segment of society that siphons off the public dole. Every developed country has them. It’s a perpetual welfare class that doesn’t work because they don’t have to. Many of them never have. They know how to manipulate the system and they pass it to their children like a fucking family heirloom. Speaking of children, some of the welfare queens are just as allergic to birth control as they are job hunting.

      No one gave me a free meal ticket in life. I come from a working class family. My environment was far from prosperous. My mother raised 7 kids, mostly by herself. We all worked. My two older step sisters worked two part time jobs, and my mother worked to make ends meet. We believe in a helping hand, not a handout.

      Parents are supposed to set an example of values, principles, and work ethic to help their kids have a better life than they did. The opportunities are there. You have to do something besides sit on your ass and complain about how unfair it is that the eeeeevil rich have so much money. Ordinary rational humans wouldn’t want to destroy their countries’ economy and penalize wage-earners with more taxation. But, that’s the goal of the class-warfare neo-Bolsheviks in the White House and the Democratic party.

      View the video of the communist punks burning London suburbs for a gander at real terrorists.

      If you come on here again, try to leave your communist manifesto talking points behind.

  4. Wow. You clearly have no idea what a socialist is. As a self-proclaimed socialist myself, I would argue that Obama’s ideas and policies are damn near middle of the line and modeled after policies in similar Western-minded countries. For example, after WWII, in complete economic ruin, then Prime Minister Winston Churchill instituted Universal Health Care for Great Britain’s citizens because he wanted to see a nation of healthy, functional people weren’t worried about weather or not they could get sick. But, by the way, ObamaCare is based off a MA state-wide health care initiative begun in 2006 by Republican Mitt Romney. So chew on that.

    But I digress. If you watch a video of this that doesn’t come from Fox News you will see that Obama DOES respond to Rhodes in saying that Biden didn’t name-call Tea Party members, but rather said that some of their actions – like refusing to compromise for the economy, trying harder to see their opponents lose than trying to see American win, and their disdain for anything that encourages social welfare – are terrorist-esque. But I understand that it’s hard to hear when you’ve got fundamentalist bullshit clogging your ears.

    Here are my suggestions to you. First, take your head out of your ass. Second, remember that Obama didn’t get us into this economic shit hole we’ve got ourselves into, he inherited MOST of it (not all). During his eight years in office President Bush dug us trillions of dollars into debt funding a war against an enemy (Iraq) who actually had nothing to do with The 9/11 attacks. Third, take your literalistic views of the Constitution and re-examine them. In a country where millions of people go without health care and the private insurance companies can jack up prices as high as they want because they own the markets, we are left with a nation of people who can’t enjoy the basic American principles: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    1. Hillary,
      Obama was raised in a socialist/communist environment, both of his parents were communist, one of his mentors was Frank Marshall Davis—a communist, he acquired more Marxist friends and associates after entering politics, and has been practicing every concept in the socialist/communist lexicon ever since, but he isn’t a socialist.
      First, you need to call your proctologist. He found your head.

      Secondly, try tearing yourself away from MSNBC and Paul Krugman’s Keynesian idiocy.

      Third, last I checked, the GOP offered a sensible Cut, Cap, and Balance plan that would help turn the economy around. The Dems in the Senate promptly squashed it because it didn’t fit their goal of continued spending. Before the ink was even dry on Obama’s signature, the debt shot up another $238 billion. They will crash right through the new debt ceiling in no time.

      “…their disdain for anything that encourages social welfare – are terrorist-esque. But I understand that it’s hard to hear when you’ve got fundamentalist bullshit clogging your ears.”

      I have disdain for class warfare assholes who think propping up welfare dependency is “social justice”. You’re in the same idiocracy as Jay Carney who thinks unemployment benefits “create” jobs, and the agricultural secretary who thinks food stamps qualify as ‘stimulus’. The libtard “terrorist” label is applied to anyone—Tea Party included—who objects to Obama’s hubris and the Dems’ ObamaCare power grab. When it comes to terrorism, no one does it like Obama’s union pals:

      http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2011/05/17/whistleblowers-beaten-intimidated-after-revealing-union-bosses-looting/

      You have a shit factory for a brain.

      Case in point:

      During his eight years in office President Bush dug us trillions of dollars into debt funding a war against an enemy (Iraq) who actually had nothing to do with The 9/11 attacks.

      No one, including George Bush, ever claimed that Hussein was directly involved in the 9/11 attacks. But he certainly had connections to Al Qaeda. There is absolutely no doubt that Hussein’s regime had a WMD program and was a state sponsor of terrorism, as are the rest of the Islamic nation-states across the Middle East.
      READ: http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2008/06/17/no-lies-about-iraq/

      Muslim terrorists are bred, funded, trained, indoctrinated, and supported throughout the Middle East. Personally, I’d have leveled at least 3/4ths of the Middle East on 12 September 2001. That’s how you fight a jihad, but I’m a former Soldier not a politician.
      Oh by the way, sweetpea: Obama’s “stimulus” cost more than the Iraq and Afghanistan war combined:
      http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2009/02/18/stimulus-costs-more-than-war-on-terrorism/, and we see how well that worked out: http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2010/09/25/hows-that-craptastic-stimulus-working-out/

      Lastly, you need to actually read the Constitution and understand it instead of ignoring it or twisting it into a leftwing meme like most libtards. Health care is not a “right”, and the government has no constitutional authority to create a commerce (take over healthcare) and force citizens to buy it. ObamaCare is an unconstituional government power grab. He is trying to create a commerce (i.e. “activity) which is not allowed by the Constitution.: http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2010/01/04/why-obamacare-is-unconstitutional/

      The Commerce Clause, which the Dems used as justification for their health care mandate, has been twisted and manipulated to justify the use of federal laws that have little to do with interstate commerce. The clause established federal rules to ensure fair practices in the trade of goods across state boundaries. It has nothing to do with a government-created commerce which forces citizens, by law, to purchase said commerce: http://topics.law.cornell.edu/wex/commerce_clause
      Bottom line: The Constitution does not give Congress the power to require that Americans purchase government mandated services, including health insurance. Nor does it permit the federal government to force citizens to use their own money to purchase government mandated services. Period.

      Private insurance companies can set their own prices and the consumer is free to choose which company and plan they want because it’s called freedom of choice.

      I know free market enterprise is an anathema to you libs, but it works. I don’t have to buy into any service I don’t want. That’s the beauty of freedom.
      ‘Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’, written into the introduction of the Declaration of Independence, means the liberty to pursue your own choices, not to have them dictated by the State.

      Cheers,
      SFC MAC
