Tea Party Strikes Back

Tea Party Activists Confront President Obama About Biden‘s ’Terrorist’ Description

DECORAH, Iowa – President Obama got into a heated back and forth with a Tea Party activist who demanded to know at the end of a town hall meeting here whether or not Vice President Biden had called members of the Tea Party “terrorists” during the debt ceiling debate.

In public, Obama did not directly answer the question from Tea Party activist Ryan Rhodes about Biden. But Obama fired back that he knows better than anyone what it’s like to be slammed for his political views and was not about to accept a lecture on the topic.

“As someone who’s been called a socialist, not born here, taking away freedoms for providing health care, I’m all for lowering the rhetoric,” Obama said.

Obama did say he would discuss the matter further with Rhodes, founder of the Iowa Tea Party, after the event. And the duo was spotted in an animated conversation a few moments later.

In an interview later with Fox News, Rhodes claimed that the President insisted that Biden had not made the original comment.

“He just denied it, he said the Vice President didn’t make any of those assertions,” said Rhodes. “He doesn’t want to even admit what was on TV nationally — all over the place — then how can you have a conversation?”

Des Moines Register:

Decorah, Ia.– The founder and chairman of the Iowa Tea Party – a Michele Bachmann supporter – stood up and screamed questions to President Obama today after he said the president ignored him.

Obama firmly yet calmly told Ryan Rhodes that he can’t speak out of turn.

“Sir, hold on a second,” Obama said. “I know it’s not going to work if you just stand up when I asked everybody to raise their hand. I didn’t see you. I wasn’t avoiding you.”

Obama then told Rhodes that he would speak with him after the event.

  2. Freedom, by the way

    Obama is probably going to rethink this new strategy and getting out among the folks. It’s too dangerous for him because he does not react well on his feet, does not appear presidential or diplomatic and is way too defensive.


  3. Good Morning Freedom and I do believe Obama is going to meet with much more opposition now than he did in ’08.

    I left my plan in Cheers for your review.
