President Obama: GOP Opposition to Stimulus 'Helped to Create the Tea-Baggers'
ABC ^ | 5/4/10 | Jake Tapper

Posted on 05/04/2010 2:10:47 PM PDT by pissant

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 Alter’s “The Promise: President Obama, Year One,” President Obama is quoted in an November 30, 2009, 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.”

Opposition to unfettered socialism helped finally rouse enough people to say no to it. After they realize it’s going to bankrupt the country and their children and grandchildren.

[What is with the foul-mouthed lefties?]

Obama’s natural constituency encompasses the amoral, the criminal, and the socially dysfunctional.

No we made sure they opposed the “stimulus”. The Tea Parties are not a product of Washington we are the allergic reaction to it.

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.

“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.”

Is that a direct quote from the President of the United States? Did he just call me a "tea-bagger" ... if so, maybe its time to dust off the "N" word ... I find them equally offensive ... if he can do it, why can't I? Gettin' a little close to the edge aren't we?

Well the headline insinuates the GOP influenced the TEA partys, and the text insinuates that the TEA partys are setting the agenda for the GOP....ho hum...here we go.

To be perfectly frank, obama, it is all YOU. The "stimulus", "healthcare", "Cap and Trade", etc...it's all you and your agenda.

Unlike the chia pets you "water" with our tax money, Americans on the right don't need a "group" to tell them when something is wrong, but something is mighty wrong if all those individual TEA party people saw it at the same time. It must be rampant.

And it is, obama. You are hellbent to destroy this nation, and that is what the TEA party is all about...opposing YOU.

The GOP can do whatever it wants...but WE - the PEOPLE - will follow our ideals, principles and the Constitution.

Some of it is a smug assumption that the masses are too un-hip to get the porn world reference of the word-twist “teabagger”.

This is one of the left-acceptable fringe worlds they feel they are in-the-know about that we in the fly-over country don't really get.

Its like 12 year olds making toilet jokes to each other and snickering to themselves that their almost-out-of-earshot parents aren't cool enough to get their reference.

We are dealing with the immature. Leftists are diseased with Elongated Adolescence.

Poor Obama. He’s just jealous that more Americans think “the tea baggers” represent their views (47%) better than Obama (44%). What a pervert. Stop projecting your sexual preferences onto tea partiers Obozo.

Rick Santelli of CNBC might be insulted, because it was he who was the first one to call for the Tea Pary (in Chicago, February 22, 2009) against Obama's mortgage bailout plan, and he is probably not of the GOP persuasion [just my opinion].

Remember when Reagan wouldn't even spend time in the Oval Office without his jacket on? We are likely to never again have another US president who brings honor to the office.

Obama is just like all leftists - crass, vulgar, limited in vocabulary & self-control.

problem is this sort of condescending talk toward his political enemies has been his MO for years yet the cowards in charge of the GOP never call him out on it....he always calls for a change in tone in DC- I’m still waiting for one GOPer with half the nutz to stand up and tell him it starts at the top....waiting a long time now....

[Leftists are diseased with Elongated Adolescence.]

I worked in medium security prisons for three years, a setting dedicated to “elongated adolescence.” Managing inmates is like babysitting a bunch of overgrown kids. Inmates can be dangerous but they are all egocentric crybabies. They’re always whining: “It’s not fair.” We used to tell them: “The fair only comes around once a year and it costs money.”

In my opinion: The tea party is made up of what was once the “silent majority” that is silent no more.

Obama or any politician for that matter who disregards or disrespects this group is making a very serious political mistake.
