Here is the fiery exchange the President found himself in!
Greta Van Susteren ^ | 8/15/11 | Ed Henry

Fox Chief White House Correspondent

DECORAH, Iowa – President Obama got into a heated back and forth with a Tea Party activist who demanded to know at the end of a town hall meeting here whether or not Vice President Biden had called members of the Tea Party “terrorists” during the debt ceiling debate.

In public, Obama did not directly answer the question from Tea Party activist Ryan Rhodes about Biden. But Obama fired back that he knows better than anyone what it’s like to be slammed for his political views and was not about to accept a lecture on the topic.

"...slammed for his political views?"

How can that be? The punk's always voted "present!"

Dear Mr. President:

Being called a terrorist does not equal “being slammed for one’s political views.”

When I condemn the animals who flew aircraft into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, I am not “slamming them for their political views.”

I will refrain from saying what I actually think of your remarks.

Sincerely,

From the Tea Party state of mind

So people criticize Obama,
Therefore Obama need not apologize if his VP calls citizens “terrorists”?

Some logic.

Classic Obamugabe: He denies attacking Tea Partiers as his campaign launches attacks on the Tea Party the very same day.

I think he should have confronted Biden on his comment.
As far as I know Obama has never said the tea party movement is a terrorist movement.

But Biden did say that and Nancy Pelosi and Janet Napalitano have all but said the same thing and threatened to bring down the DHS on the tea party.

I’m all for calling Obama on the carpet for stuff, but it would be more productive to go after him for stuff he has actually said/done. There’s a lot of material there.

He learned that tactic a long time ago. He also favors the “two-handed handshake” which is totally supposed to be dominating.

Somehow with President Downgrayedd it doesn’t come off the same ;-)

a Joe the Plumber moment

when you say get in your neighbor’s face. when you blame everyone
but yourself. President Downgrade — the earthquake did it, the Arab
Spring did it, oops Libya leading from behind.

When you say “punish your enemies.” when you condone
Tea Party violence— SEIU against Ken Gladney, Organizing for AMerica
in Wisconsin, hitler mustaches for Scott Walker.

When you won’t even assure senior citizens that they will be getting
their Aug. 3 soc. security check. When you use your Sat. morning message
to blame us again and again....

this is war -— you have declared war against the American people.

we declare war against you

Major error in how the question was posed. The questioner should have asked, “Do you disavow VP Biden’s characterization of the Tea Party as terrorists?”

Ryan Rhodes bump!

nobama and all like him need to be hounded unmercifully. This is the man that is destroying our country. He needs to feel some Tea Party heat.

Good for you Mr. Rhodes in not backing down. Screw those folks who called you out. What part of “destroying our country” don’t they understand?

If he said that and it was recorded on video... obama is finished before he even started. It is these types of missteps that will take him down... like kerry... but obama is much worse than kerry... in both temper and arrogance... and that is saying something!
