Skip to comments.ABC Reports Obama is 'Unaware of Tea Parties'

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."

He goes for Rush’s throat, but has no knowledge of the tea parties?
He knows, and knew. This is his way of trying to marginalize them.
Bill Clinton did not have sex with that woman.
Somebody needs to tell them. Perhaps we all should call the WH today..
Too busy petting the promised pooch?
He is obviously a blithering idiot. It does not surprise me at all. A no experience Chicago thug as prsident. I am depressed(Blazing Saddles).
Bambi “I know Nothing........”
If he is not aware of something of this magnitude, he is not fit for public office.
Whatever your definition of “is” is....
It would be nice if he isn’t lying. He would then be letting his guard down.
I find it very plausible as far as I’m concerned he don’t know s#it
And Nero fiddled while Rome burned.
Warming up his apology and butt kissing tour.
Of course he wasn’t - IT DIDN’T SHOW UP ON HIS TELEPROMPTER!
I wonder if he would know that over 100,000 people had gathered across the country to demand he leave office?
Yeah, he knew. Its the way President Arrogant deals with everything. Just ignore it and it’ll go away. I’ll bet he screams like a girl when we come to drag him out.
He’s lying....again. He’s aware, but choosing to ignore them. He can do that because the voting majority in the nation chose a 1-party system - top to bottom.
And he didn’t bow either.
And he promised legislation would be posted on the net for 48 hours before it would be voted on.
and on and on....
we’re going to have to count his lies of the day.
For Presidnet Muslim, if he doesn’t acknowledge it, it didn’t happen.
Louis XVI wrote in his diary “rien”(nothing)on July 14, 1789 the day the Bastille was stormed. Obama shows equal arrogant oblivion to the events happening in the rest of the country.
President Obama did not destroy America's economic independence
Maybe Obama thinks this is a protest against the Bush taxes because Obama says he’s giving a tax cut for those making less than $200,000.
BullCrap. I'll bet you his minions read FR many times every day. There ain't no way he don't know.
The thread is on FR.
Both the All Barack Channel and Zero are LIARS.
"It is anti-government, it is anti-CNN, it is not appropriate for family viewing..."
I call Bull shiite on ‘he wasn’t aware ...’. Even the ‘aristocratic First Kenyan’ must have heard the crowd on Penn Ave.
Zero must not watch MSNBC, but then who does ... The condescending, name-calling innuendo that passes for reporting there was in full snigger mode last evening. Off-color references to rednecks and ‘tea bagging’ (I didn’t know what that was until last night) and such were offered for hours. And I was watching only for 20-30 seconds at a time.
But it is very like our liberal leader to ignore the angry folks at the gate. After all, they only exist because he allows it.
There is no way that this insecure, thin skinned narcissist doesn’t know that there are thousands of people actually protesting against his policies. I bet he smoked about 2 packs of smokes last night demanding to know every last detail and screaming something about not knowing where his strawberries are!
There are only two possibilies.
1) Obama genuinely wasn’t aware of the tea parties
2) Obama is sending the message that he doesn’t care about the tea parties.
Both possibilities lead to the conclusion that Obama is unqualified to be president.
So what motivated yesterday’s Totus speech lauding his tax breaks to 95%, and how we were supposed to have seen this reflected somewhere beginning April 1st?
The bs that flows out and down from 0b0z0’s outhouse, the former White House, is amazing.
Gibbs seems to be incapable of telling the truth.
EDIT: "ABC Reports Obama is
'Unaware of CLUELESS ABOUT Tea Parties'"
the left knows that if the right is willing to miss a few days of productivity, work and actually organize and protest, they are finished. they are taking the same tactic as they did with Palin. They are TERRIFIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2,000 cities, with say just 100 at each, equals 200,000 Americans.
Well, maybe the next one should be in front of the White House.
What else is he unaware of?
I think you’re thinking of King George who was supposed to have said the same thing on the 4th of July.
Obama is this out of touch?! Not much of a leader if he doesn’t know what is happening.
Obama needs to be ridiculed more.
The president in the cluless plastic bubble.
Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised. That Obama dude is still looking for his desk.
Of course I’m sure Obama will be quite aware when the ten million Mexicans march in a few weeks.
If he doesn’t see them, he doesn’t have to comment on them.
“Is this a revolt?”
“No, monsieur, it is a revolution.”
In my little town we had at least 1,000+ folks who came out.
Man you must have one hell of a BS meter. Mine pegged out and exploded around the end of January. My next one will be an industrial diesel powered monster. Might survive the next couple of months.
