Skip to comments.ABC: Obama 'Unaware of Tea Parties'
Posted on 04/15/2009 2:28:57 PM PDT by anniegetyourgun
Maybe he just doesnt know that there are people who disagree with his massive tax and spend agenda. That would explain a lot. Perhaps the network medias 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, ABCs Dan Harris said on Good Morning America on April 15.
Harriss story was the first ABC News report specifically about the tea parties since Rick Santellis of CNBCs famous rant calling for a Chicago Tea Party back in February. CNBCs Joe Kernen referred to Santellis 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 Im 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 hasnt really caught on.
April 15th is the new April Fool’s Day.
This is so funny. Napolitano issues that farce of a DHS warning, and Obama doesn’t know about this?
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.
(Did he know about them? Youbetcha!)
“Stupid is a stupid does !”
Sure he does....and you’re right - he won’t be able to resist some snide comment in his next presser. He’s a sneering creep.
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.
they are too busy covering the new dog at the White House.
THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cincinnati Tea Party March 15 2009
should read Cincinnati Tea Party April 15 2009
Uh-huh. Just like he's unaware that the name of his new puppy just HAPPENS to be his initials!!
Yeah . . . . . . . . I'm buying this line o' crapola!!!
Just like he was unaware that Ayers was a terrorist bomber or that he was present when Rev. Wright was badmouthing America.
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
Hey Dufus!....Open your window!
Why limit yourself, just use creep. LOL
I agree AnnieGetYourGun (right wing suspect at large) Heh heh heh...
Yes, I think you’re on to something there.
sign at a Tea Party - "Smell the Change .... B.O."
yeah like ex NY mayor dinkins was una0ware of 3 days of rioting
>>Yes, thet really do think we’re stupid.
Maybe Obama is really that stupid!
He’s going to visit the flood areas of ND & IA? He’s going to tour the aftermath of tornados?
He’s going to go anywhere to meet with people who have experienced disasters this year?
Well Emperor Zero.
You’re either dangerously clueless or you’re a liar.
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.
Obama isn’t aware of it.... yea right, and maybe monkeys will fly out of my butt.
You’re talking to the choir, FD. I’ve been saying since 11/4/08 that our fellow countrymen are deluded and they love Obama.
Amen brother. You can bet they are watching FOX Network and coming up with ways to "spin" what's happening.
Sure, and I am not aware of any White House pets.
LOL yep they do.
You have to laugh at the dumb stuff they come up with.
ABC and Pres’ent DUH-bama are damn liars....
White House Blocks TEA Party at Treasury
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.
Re: “Just like he was unaware that Ayers was a terrorist bomber or that he was present when Rev. Wright was badmouthing America”
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.
When the peasants are standing outside the white house with pitchforks and torches he’ll blame it on Halloween.
He is a big eared dummy.
Oh, I don’t know. Obama is unaware of a lot of things. In fact, he seems to be on his own planet.
Lyin’ sack of stuff.
maybe if we take the tea party pictures and.....
he’ll become aware.
ROFLOL! That is almost the funniest thing I have heard all day!
“Chuck Todd dismissed the protests as so-called tea parties and said the idea hasnt 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.
He’s just voting present..
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.
