Obama Mocks Tea Party Movementů Says He's Amused by the Tea Party Rallies

Barack Obama told fellow democrats today that he’s “amused by the tea party protests.” The Hill reported:

President Barack Obama struck a hyperpartisan note Thursday, telling Democrats that he was “amused” by the Tax Day Tea Party rallies.

Obama, addressing a Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraiser in Miami, did little to endear himself to the Tea Party groups protesting around the country, saying “they should be saying thank you” because of the tax cuts he has signed into law.

The president went as far as to say that this week’s special election in Florida, which was won by Democrat Ted Deutch, was portrayed by Republicans as “a referendum on healthcare, a referendum on the stimulus.”

“And you know what, it was,” Obama said to applause.

Obama continued to dare Republicans to run on a platform of repealing healthcare reform, telling the audience “they won’t be very successful.”

Despite the president’s confidence, DNC Chairman Tim Kaine told the crowd that they should assume that Democrats are “running into a headwind” in the November midterms.

He has every reason to mock us. So far he is kicking our asses and winning at every turn. Pretty soon well see what he accomplishes on the anti gun front as well. With the media in his pocket, he is running circles around the right. Tell me it’s not true. I would love some good news.

Don’t take the bait, folks.

The fascist is saying this crap, and the media is reporting it, to BAIT US.

He thinks he has us on the ropes, and wants to get us to a “tipping point”.

Don’t give it the pleasure.

Hey why not? The libs have crushed the Tea Party. In this past election the libs enjoyed a fractured opposition that enabled the most radical, incompetent man to ever occupy the White House to be re-elected.

Liberals may disagree, but they unite against the common enemy, Republicans. They don’t care what stripe, conservative, GOPe, libertarian, whatever, doesn’t matter, if it’s right of center, they hate it, and they’ll crush it.

Guess what? They did, and they can laugh.

I’m hoping that remarks like that will get the Tea Party off their collective butts, inform the GOP they better wise up, and start selecting candidates. We have to strengthen the House and get that darn Senate. We have to kick Reid’s butt.

So am I. He wasn't so jovial after the 2010 mid-terms.

Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2014 won't have any coattails to run on.

As long as we’re on the wayback machine, here’s a great one from Valerie:

Jarrett told them, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

King George of England was also “amused” by the Boston Tea Party.

“Jarrett told them, “...”

An administration of lowlife Chicago thugs for a populace of weak-minded gullible morons. It fits.

Let’s hope that King Barack does not use his royal scepter to destroy America as Hitler did Germany. I think Obama is a judgment on this country; it is unbelievable people are falling for this.

Looks like Val is a gal of her word. Hold on to your seats, folks. They're just getting started.
