Three days after he decried the lack of civility in American politics, President Obama is quoted in a new book about his presidency referring to the Tea Party movement using a derogatory term with sexual connotations.
In Jonathan Alters The Promise: President Obama, Year One, President Obama is quoted in an interview saying that the unanimous vote of House Republicans vote against the stimulus bills set the tenor for the whole year ... That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans.
Tea Party activists loath the term tea baggers, which has emerged in liberal media outlets and elsewhere as a method of mocking the activists and their concerns.
On Saturday, the president delivered a commencement address at the University of Michigan where he said one way to keep our democracy healthy is to maintain a basic level of civility in our public debate
But we cant expect to solve our problems if all we do is tear each other down.

Quit calling them teabaggers, ahole.
Call me a “Tea Bagger”... I like it because now I know I am pissing you off!
The list, ping
He’s a bastard, a Tyrant, a Narcissist, an impostor, a liar, a Marxist, a closet Muslim and a racist.
Otherwise, he’s a great guy.
Obama is suffering from Teanoia. The disease is hitting the brains of left wing fanatics across the country. It is fatal on November 3rd.
People who use the term “teabagger” are mostly FISTERS. Fister as in the communist clenched fist or the 0bama fist bump. No sexual innuendo intended.
... and Obama knows a teabagger when he sees one because he has lots of experience with it.
Ask Larry Sinclair.
I think he’s giving the GOP too much credit; they shouldn’t flatter themselves.
Really? So thats how it is.
Back to the tea partiers?
Seems to me that the flailing around for something to distract the people with is increasing.
Obama’s policies motivated the call for a “Teaparty” as the only civil way to promote protest and opposition to EVERYTHING he stands for!
ole Jake must like tea-bagging, ehhh
And here I thought it wasn’t Obama policy that is causing the backlash, now Obama says it’s his policies driving the backlash. Not too accustomed to America and it 57 states is he.
Tea Partiers got stirring in the Bush years when Bush nominated weak Supreme Court justices like Harriet Miers and tried to usher in GOP’s “immigration reform” in 2006.
It isn’t the race or party of the fool in the White House, it is the right of center public speaking out against the policies.
There was an outcry over the Dubai Ports Deal (although there SHOULD have been an outcry when Bill Clinton first outsourced it to a foreign nation to begin with).
There was an unsuccessful outcry over the bailouts (enough to make Congress and the President wait 2 more weeks before ramming it through in late 2008).
It is Socialist Revisionist History to say otherwise.
Screw you Hussien.
Ghetto trash in the White House.
teabagger is a homophobic slur, flood ABCDisney’s mailbox with email and let them know that the public knows what the word means and why the Left uses it.
Keep it up, Obamaroid. Your arrogant dissing of the masses will catch up with you. Please, please, keep it up.
