    Obama: Tea Party features 'core group' against him

    Obama: Tea Party features 'core group' against him - Yahoo! News

    "WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says he believes the Tea Party is built around a "core group" of people who question whether he is a U.S. citizen and believe he is a socialist.

    But beyond that, Obama tells NBC he recognizes the movement involves "folks who have legitimate concerns" about the national debt and whether the government is taking on too many difficult issues simultaneously."


    HMMM, I wonder when the arrests will happen?

    The Alinski Agitator! My new nickname for Obama. He likes to instigate and agitate his opponents. It's the Rules For Radicals played out for real.

    i think he's correct. and i think it's too bad for the tea people that there are so many lunatic redneck racist assholes among them, because they have a point about spending.

    Maybe, but I don't doubt that he knows exactly who these people are, where they live etc.

    Re: Obama: Tea Party features 'core group' against him

    Obama Takes More Aggressive Tack - WSJ.com

    obama has no clue how to LEAD

    he does not understand the difference between LEADERSHIP and cheap, ordinary opposition politics

    LEADERSHIP requires BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER

    LEADERSHIP is LARGE

    opposition, MY GIG, is cheap, easy and POLITICAL

    leadership, MY FORMER GIG, is expensive, difficult and VISIONARY

    effective LEADERSHIP is exciting masses of people with your ideas, your prescriptions, your direction

    you want to get as many people as possible behind you with as much enthusiasm as you can inspire

    instead, the day after PASSING his porcine health care he goes to IOWA to TAUNT and ATTACK the TENS OF MILLIONS of americans who sincerely, out of principled conviction, just happen to disagree with his big govt views

    this is NOT leadership, this is the PETTIEST of politics

    HE's the one who SAID he was gonna go on a nation-wide TOUR this season to SELL that which had already PASSED

    this is bizarre

    he's OPENLY ADMITTING the people he represents, the people he's been elected to lead, DON'T LIKE his CREATION

    and he's also CONSPICUOUSLY taking his eye off the ball

    we've got HOUSING thru the floor, his HAMP was a proven failure, we've got UNEMPLOYMENT at bloody hi's, his STIMULUS failed to cap at 8%

    we've got SPENDING at levels that TERRIFY the people's republic of hu, obama's promise to cut the deficit in half in 4 years is LOL-able

    we've got north korean mines blowing up south korean naval vessels on the parallel, drug cartels in ciudad targeting embassy employees, iran brazenly announcing a new nuke site just about every day...

    and president pie-in-the-face goes to IOWA to shout, "bring it on"

    "i dare you"

    LOL!

    no wonder his polls are at an ALL TIME LOW

    Health care law too costly, most say - USATODAY.com

    where's the BOUNCE?

    2/3 say the bill costs too much

    COST was pieface's original impetus, but then somehow it all got morphed into expansion of coverage

    YOU CAN'T EXPAND MEDICARE AND MEDICAID BY 12 MILLION NEW ENROLLEES WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY CUTTING THEIR ALREADY OVERSTRAINED FUNDING BY HALF A T

    his rush to IOWA was so roundly criticized as stupid he characteristically 180'd his pivot within 24 hours and jetted off to afghanistan so as at least to LOOK like a president who's doing his job

    you can't change your mind all the time like a teenage girl dealing with her hormones if you want to be an effective LEADER

    so now he's off to MAINE---LOL!

    gonna get that susan collins and omnipresent olympia on board

    pathetic, pusillanimous politics

    LEAD, president pieface

    fix this economy, NOW!

    or get out of the white house

    bring IRAN to HEEL before they do something horrible

    stand up to HU, represent united states interests

    quit being such a putz

    He can't do that when a big chunk of the Tea Party crowd hates him merely for the (D) next to his name.

    Once again, a leftist is already painted into an intellectual corner he can't get out of.

    Can't debate the issues? Just call people names. That is what I would do to, if I couldn't give an educated answer to anything.
