ABC Reports Obama is 'Unaware of Tea Parties'
NewsBusters ^ | April 15, 2009 | Julia A. Seymour

Posted on 04/16/2009 10:57:18 AM PDT by george76

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 knows, and knew. This is his way of trying to marginalize them.

If he is not aware of something of this magnitude, he is not fit for public 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.

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.

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.

I'm trying to dig up the thread that has a 'Google spread sheet' [whatever that is] where I saw the total number of tea party attendees at more than 250,000.

The thread is on FR.

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?
