New Book Quotes Obama as Describing Tea Partiers as 'Tea-Baggers' (Flashback)
FOX News ^ | May 10, 2010

A new book about President Obama alleges he once used the vulgar term "tea-bagger" to refer to the Tea Party movement.

Newsweek columnist Jonathan Alter, in his book "The Promise: President Obama, Year One," to be released May 18, quotes the president as saying that Republican opposition to the economic stimulus package "helped create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans," according to a Washington Post report on the book.

White House spokesman Bill Burton responded Wednesday evening by saying he had no reason to dispute the accuracy of the quote in Alterman's book, adding that the term was not meant to be derogatory in any way

An act that I’m sure he and andy cooper are well versed in. And, I heard they were firmly in moochelle antoinette’s grasp. Or maybe his gal pal val or in for a penny pritzker. What a fine bunch huh?

Most leftists I know delight in using the word derogatorily to anyone who doesn’t repeat Big Media’s headlines from last night in praise and worship of their god Hussein.

That’s a pretty hateful term for him to use. Cleary, something must have happened to him that left a bad taste in his mouth.

How long will it take before Obama pulls out his race card? Don’t forget he’s already got his ‘get out of jail card free’ card. Do you really expect Senate Majority Democrats to impeach the first black president? He knows it, so expect to see some real lunacy from Obama in the near future. Be prepared for some real fire coming out of the White House, even if the MSM stops following their Pied Piper, it won’t stop Obama’s goons.

Oh, I don't care about that. I want indictments in a real court of law.

I want the scandals to grow by drips and drops into large puddles of crap on the floor, until the public hates O'bomber, the RATs and their so-called "media".

I want RATs rioting in the streets.

I remember when the President called me a “tea-bagger”; I had to find out what that meant. I found out what it meant and was appalled that the president would say such a thing about me. He is nor the President of all the people in the USA — only those who would say things like he does.

Obummer used the IRS to ferret out all Tea party members including volunteers, put the fear of IRS audits into them to keep them at bay against the corrupt regime.

“Bill Burton responded Wednesday evening by saying he had no reason to dispute the accuracy of the quote in Alterman’s book, adding that the term was not meant to be derogatory in any way,” Bill Burton is stupid. Obama meant it to be derogatory and it was and still is a vile insult.
