Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit, according to several sources in the room.

Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.

“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”

Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists.”...

Earlier in the day, Biden told Senate Democrats that Republican leaders have “guns to their heads” in trying to negotiate deals....

Biden told Democratic lawmakers that the deal would take away the tea party’s “weapon of mass destruction” — the threat of a default on U.S. debt obligations.

“They have no compunction about blowing up the economy to get what they want,” Doyle told POLITICO after the meeting....

“They have no compunction about blowing up the economy to get what they want,” Doyle told POLITICO after the meeting.

All of the wording references "terrorists". Obama, Biden, and the Democratic Party don;t have a problem calling Tea Partiers "terrorists".

If they can call Americans "terrorists" so cavalierly with no concern about retaliation - how come they've got such a problem calling "groups" like Al Sharia "terrorists"?

They’re very brave in calling Americans “terrorists” yet won’t call “groups” like Al Sharia “terrorists”?

Cowards! Disgusting!
