....You know the drill. Pick a target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.
Obama's re-election team has set it sights on the Tea Party. Of course, it's not the first time the Tea Party has been in Team Obama's crosshairs. Just last month, while appearing on CNN's State of the Union, David Axelrod told Candy Crowley that Republicans in Congress "were in the thralls of this reign of terror from the far right that has dragged the party to the right." So if one of Obama's top advisers is prepared to liken his political adversaries to terrorists then you know there's no limit to what Obama and his acolytes are prepared to say about the Tea Party. In two of its campaign ads with its Maoist inspired theme "Forward," the voiceover solemnly says, "Some said our best days were behind us," accompanied by images with Tea Party protesters.
Tea Partiers, like a majority of Americans, believe the country is going in the wrong direction under President Obama's policies. But that's a far cry from believing that America's best days are behind us. As someone who addressed the Tea Party Tax Day Rally in Worcester, Massachusetts, last month, I can personally attest that Tea Party activists want to leave their children and grandchildren with a better America. Consider this portion from the Worcester Tea Party Mission Statement:
" The Worcester Tea Party is a local, all volunteer, non-profit organization. Across the greater Worcester County area we are building the bottom-up organization to return our country back to the principles that made her great.
We need to connect with our neighbors to form strong local groups, ready to take on whatever challenges we face. Together, there's no limit to what we can achieve."

Americans ARE the Tea Party! Obama targets Americans.
U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev hold a bilateral meeting before attending the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul March 26, 2012.
.....On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but its important for him to give me space, Obama can be heard telling Medvedev, apparently referring to incoming Russian president and outgoing prime minister Vladimir Putin.
Yeah, I understand, Medvedev replies, according to an account relayed by an ABC News producer, who said she viewed a recording of the discussion made by a Russian camera crew. I understand your message about space. Space for you
This is my last election, Obama interjects. After my election, I have more flexibility.......Source
Kremlin ups rhetoric on missile defense "The Kremlins most recent response to U.S. and NATO missile defense plans in Europe crosses any and all lines associated with both statecraft and logic. Still, some view comments made by Russian Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov as simply more of the same. Speaking at an international missile defense conference organized by the Ministry of Defense in Moscow last week, Makarov said that his country would consider pre-emptive use of force against NATOs future missile defense installations.".......
Bring it on Bambi. You’re messing with real ‘Muricans now...not your east coast metrosexuals.
But “them” being in the WH and dragging this country to the far left is okay? Bring it on wimpy!!!! Of course I keep forgetting that they are the “ones” that are correct and we are always wrong headed. I think not axleshaft.
Helping keep mankind warm for almost 65 years.
Tea Party Party has toughened up. They (we) were shocked and awed by the virulient attack from media, race baiters and Dems accusing them of racisim, anti-americanism, hate for poor, immigrants (anyone who counts) etc.
But they high tailed it into the high grass, behind trees and hills, like Mel Gibson’s patriots, to apply more surgical strikes, especially to build grassroots support for TP thinkers to take on incumbent RINOs and demon rats.
Similar to how SwiftBoat Vets reacted to the unmerciful and dishonest attacks for just telling the truth. They valiantly stood by their ground and ultimately prevailed.
Adapt, Improvise, Overcome. We shall prevail
“Obama Targets the Tea Party”
We’ll see who ends up getting drilled...in the political sense of course. :-)
Anyone But 0bama ‘12!!!
Look how that ended up
The more this skinny arrogant communist kenyan disrespects the Moms and Pops out there holding signs for liberty, the more the tea party grows. I say that having been to the big “kill the bill” rally at the US Capitol last year. Being in that crowd was like being in a 4th of July crowd in middle America, something obama and axelrod will NEVER intuitively understand
The Tea Party is not capable of being “frozen”.
Tea Partiers are awaiting the November election, and Obama’s efforts to “freeze” us will only result in adding to the accumulated ire, and therefore, turnout.
So, who is the factory worker, the average working person going to feel closer come election day the Tea Party or a bunch of “tree huggers”, “fudge packers” and “carpet grazers”?
Good luck with that, Obama. He apparently doesn’t know the “Tea Party” doesn’t exist. There is no monolithic entity called the Tea Party. The “Tea Party” is made up of very loosely affiliated groups and even individuals who share similar but not homogenous views on small government and liberty. Many people who consider themselves part of the “Tea Party” have probably never attended a Tea Party event.
Of couse obamba knows the tea party exists, after all, he is in charge.
All the organs of the body were having a meeting,
Trying to decide who was the one in charge.
“I should be in charge,” said the brain, “Because I run all the body’s systems, so without me nothing would happen.”
“I should be in charge,” said the blood, “Because I circulate oxygen all over so without me you’d all waste away.”
“I should be in charge,” said the stomach,” Because I process food and give all of you energy.”
“I should be in charge,” said the legs, “because I carry the body wherever it needs to go.”
“I should be in charge,” said the eyes, “Because I allow the body to see where it goes.”
“I should be in charge,” said the rectum, “Because I’m responsible for waste removal.”
All the other body parts laughed at the rectum
And insulted him,
So in a huff, he shut down tight.
Within a few days, the brain had a terrible headache,
The stomach was bloated,
The legs got wobbly,
The eyes got watery,
And the blood was toxic.
They all decided that the rectum should be the boss
The Moral of the story?
Even though the others do all the work...
The ass hole is usually in charge
There, fixed it.
I was surprised by how many candidates running on the Dem side are openly campaigning against the Tea Party.
That does not appear to be a winning strategy in my view.
Yeah, those moms, dads, and grandparent's I've seen protesting - who left the place cleaner than when they got there - are truly the "terrorists". /s
Please Mr. Obama. . please don’t attack us. . .we can’t stand it.. . it turns us into bowls of jelly and our feet to clay when we hear Heir Adolf Axelrodden call us terrorist! We know your brownshirts at the IRS are collecting names for the declaration of martial law, the roundup and reeducation efforts at the FEMA camps!!WE ARE AFRAID. . so we will shut up. . don’t worry. . we will all be quiet now.

“I was surprised by how many candidates running on the Dem side are openly campaigning against the Tea Party.”
This means the dems have decided this will be a turnout election. They attack Zimmerman to turn out the black base. They concoct the “War on Women” to turn out the radical and lesbian female base. And they attack the tea party to turn out the unions and the trustafarian base.
Hey Soetoro, you’re a phony, limp wristed, lying, loser, wannabe thug. You made Jimmah Carter look good.
The louder the enemy cries out about the Tea Party, the more you know the Tea Party message is hitting home.
"We need to connect with our neighbors to form strong local groups, ready to take on whatever challenges we face. Together, there's no limit to what we can achieve."
The article in The American Spectator here speaks of today's Tea Party of Worcester, MA.
On November 1, 1896, immediately before the election of 1896 (McKinley v. Bryan) there was a demonstration in Worcester, MA calling for "Sound Money." It was the Tea Party Rally of its time. My family was from Worcester, MA, and my Great-grandfather, one of the ~40 named clergy in the article who participated.
>10,000 people marched: politicians, community leaders, businessmen, the clergy, etc.
It was a precursor of sorts to the Tea Party rallies of today, and at a very critical time in the history of the US. Remember "Free Silver"
Like our 9-12 Rally, these "Sound Money" demonstrations happened in many cities on that day -- all up and down the East Coast in fact.
Imagine if we could focus our efforts this year with a similar rally before this 2012 election just like the 9-12 Rally in 2009!
As it appeared in the Worcester Spy
Bring it on, you illegitimate constitutionally ineligible s##thead.
Pretty easy to run a contrasting ad — peaceful Tea Party rallies with grannies, business owners, veterans, etc. vs. Obama-sanctioned, violent OWS dirtbags.
This is bad political advice from people who are so used to gulling the public with astroturf that they can't think in terms other than their own. Welcome to the tar pits, boys.
Obama and the GOP have that in common.
