“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.
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“.
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:
