ABC: Obama 'Unaware of Tea Parties'
biz&media ^ | 4/15/09 | Julia A. Seymour

Posted on 04/15/2009 2:28:57 PM PDT by anniegetyourgun

Maybe he just doesn’t know that there are people who disagree with his massive tax and spend agenda. That would explain a lot. Perhaps the network media’s near silence on the “tea party” phenomenon has kept President Obama from realizing that hundreds of tax day protests will happen today?

“The White House says the president is unaware of the tea parties and will hold his own event today,” ABC’s Dan Harris said on “Good Morning America” on April 15.

Harris’s story was the first ABC News report specifically about the tea parties since Rick Santelli’s of CNBC’s famous rant calling for a Chicago Tea Party back in February. CNBC’s Joe Kernen referred to Santelli’s impact on spurring the tea parties as a “cultural phenomenon.”

Santelli reacted on April 15 to the hundreds of protests scheduled for tax day around the country saying “I’m pretty proud of this.”

NBC also addressed the tea parties in passing on April 15 “Today.” Chuck Todd dismissed the protests as “so-called” tea parties and said “the idea hasn’t really caught on.”

This is so funny. Napolitano issues that farce of a DHS warning, and Obama doesn’t know about this?

LMAO

He knows about it, and is livid that such a thing could be taking place under his perfect administration.

He won’t be able to keep quiet about it, and he will tip his hand that he is very much aware of it.

This story says he’s “unaware of the Tea Parties”.

Other stories are that he’s saying “What’s with the Tea Parties? I’ve already cut taxes”.

Which is it?

Hitler was fairly oblivious about Stalingrad too.

Sadly the Germans did not check or care about his Austrian birth certificate.

He’ll say he just needed a few days to really understand it before he could say anything. Meanwhile, he’s trying to understand why the DHS memo did not make all the right-wing activists stay home in fear of being labelled as subversives. Now he has a real reason for the unwarranted wiretaps.. HA

He’s going to go anywhere to meet with people who have experienced disasters this year?

No?

You ca bet that obama was aware of the Tea Parties. He gets breifed every morning by his fascist running dogs on the state of his "campaign" of hope and change.

The SIGN: Napolitano( Jane Reno II),timed a realease of a non evidentiary based Homeland Security warning aganst "Right Wng Extremists." Based on sentiment only, invoking the name of Timothy McVeigh.

You bet Obama is aware. And worried.

I hope Napolitano releases more fascist jingoism. It looks good on her and advances the conservative cause.

This is JUST the beginning.

Who knows? Maybe he didn’t know. For many liberals, if it isn’t on the NYT or the Wash Post, then it might as well not exist.

I just had a conversation with two co-workers of mine who are Democrats; neither had ever heard anything about the Tea Parties. The first they heard of it was via the Paul Krugman column in the NYT of a few days ago. The funny thing was that one of these co-workers then parroted Krugman’s line that the Tea Parties were all a GOP set-up. I just laughed in his face, and told him that the GOP leadership has neither the intelligence nor the courage to balance a checkbook, much less something as big as this.

Don’t underestimate how insular the thinking of liberals can be.

There is absolutely no way that a, well I was going to say man, with public relations queen David Axelrod as an advisor, doesn’t know about this, is polling it, and tracking it. If he truly does not, the public relations queen is not earning its pay, and should be sacked.

That's an insult to Valley Girls. They are mental giants compared to the Kenyan usurper of the White House. You never hear Valley Girls hemming, hawing and stuttering. They are far more eloquent...even without a teleprompter.

Exactly — Zero is frequently “unaware” of things when it suits his purposes — seems he finally got wind of today’s tea parties in enough time to spout off about taxes early this a.m. though................ what a jacka**!

No. He is given to addressing the fallen heroes assembled before him. He said so. Right in front of a crowd of living heroes...in one of the 57 states.

It's extremely unlikely that Obama is unaware of the Tea Parties that happened today. But if he is, that would be a good thing. Ignorance/stupidity on the part of your enemies should be celebrated and encouraged.

“Chuck Todd dismissed the protests as “so-called” tea parties and said “the idea hasn’t really caught on.”

Chuck Todd, who entered the contest “The Fat and Uglier Version of Lenin” and won, also hasn’t caught on. He will soon be feautured in commercials as an ingredient in dog food. After that, Todd intends to pursue a career as tire skid marks in a yet unnamed police TV drama.

From the guy who went on ESPN and knew every stat of most of the NCAA teams in the brackets,
every player, their strengths and weaknesses,
the benches, injuries, etc.
Barry obviously considers himself the president of some of the people, but, not all of the people.
Flip this to some obscure liberal protest during the Bush years .
If this type of ignorance was claimed from President Bush’s White House ,
the media would claim GW was out of touch, stupid and uncaring.
