Obama Mocks Tea Party Movement… Says He's Amused by the Tea Party Rallies

Barack Obama told fellow democrats today that he’s “amused by the tea party protests.”
The Hill reported:

President Barack Obama struck a hyperpartisan note Thursday, telling Democrats that he was “amused” by the Tax Day Tea Party rallies.

Obama, addressing a Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraiser in Miami, did little to endear himself to the Tea Party groups protesting around the country, saying “they should be saying thank you” because of the tax cuts he has signed into law.

The president went as far as to say that this week’s special election in Florida, which was won by Democrat Ted Deutch, was portrayed by Republicans as “a referendum on healthcare, a referendum on the stimulus.”

“And you know what, it was,” Obama said to applause.

Obama continued to dare Republicans to run on a platform of repealing healthcare reform, telling the audience “they won’t be very successful.”

Despite the president’s confidence, DNC Chairman Tim Kaine told the crowd that they should assume that Democrats are “running into a headwind” in the November midterms.

    So basically Hussain is using the same tone Bush used against his enemies.
    Bush used it against Al qaeda, Hussain uses it against American people.

    He probably won’t be so amused in November

  • Truth Seeker

    He’s amused now. Maybe he can return the favor and be our new court jester in 2012 when he’s looking for a new job.

  • newton

    We are NOT amused, Barry.

    Prepare to get your comeuppance.

    …amused like the guy who jumped off a 10 story building, and every floor he passed, someone would ask, “How’s it going”?…to which he replied, “So far, so good”!!!

    I can’t believe that he brought up the special election Florida. They could have run a local sex predator and likely won that seat. Neither party even spent money there.

    Obama is really losing a grip on reality.

    “Laugh it up Fuzzball.”

    We’ll be seeing Dems unemployed in November.

    There are a number of voices on the Left and Right that seem to think this “TEA Party” thing will lose steam after the election.

    I think we’re just getting started.

    I was “amused” too, when I saw his faked computer generated birth certificate.

    So, according to Obama, the special election in one congressional district of Florida was “a referendum on healthcare, a referendum on the stimulus.” What then was the statewide election of Republican Scott Brown in one of the most liberal states in the country then? Oh, that’s right, that election mattered so little to the horse’s ass Obama, Pelosi, and Reid that they rammed through the healthcare bill anyway. But now we’re supposed to be impressed by Deutch’s win and consider it nationwide approval for the healthcare bill and stimulus bill? How about the plummeting national approval numbers of Obama and his fellow Democrats in Congress? How about the actual nationwide polls where people are asked directly of their thoughts on the healthcare bill and the stimulus and a strong majority are opposed to both, with a solid majority wanting to repeal the healthcar bill? Or the Democrats who voted for both the healthcare and stimulus bills who are retiring and not running for reelection in order to flee the sinking ship before November? I guess all that is not important compared to the special election in Florida, right Barry? Puh-lease.

    This is the “towering intellect” of Obama at work, folks. Anecdotes and selective “evidence” supporting his views. The horse’s ass comes across more like a political party hatchet man (e.g., Carville, Begala, Beckel, et al.), not a president of the entire country. One thing is for sure: Obama certainly didn’t forget the “Alinsky skills” he learned during his community organizer days. He’d be a great Minister of Propaganda for his buddy Hugo in Venezuela.

    Isn’t It Time for A Velvet Revolution?


  • Chippy

    His dumbo ears and jack$$S smile makes me think he should audition for the Cartoon Channel in 2012. The Blago trial will doom him much sooner. :-)

  • sunny black

    Excuse me if anyone else came to this conclusion sooner, but I’m starting to think more and more that this guy is INTENTIONALLY being a douchebag to me. The guy actually WANTS to piss me off. He wants to divide this country into people who love him and people who…well, really, really despise him.

    That’s sooooooo weird.

    he is not even being subtle anymore. “Amuses” him? We’ll see how amused he is when the Majority House Republicans refuse to fund socialism. (fund socialism-it almost sounds opposite of itself..)

  • Dell

    He may be laughing on the outside, but he’s crying tears as big as horse turds on the inside…guaranteed!

    The can see the handwriting on the wall and the message is becoming more and more clear.

    The “Party of No” has become the “Party of No…vember”.

    Obama isn’t lying. They aren’t impressed. You can protest and they will pass cap and trade. You can write letters and immigration laws will pass. Only the greed and desire to stay in office by the democrats will save us this summer. Maybe Nancy will keep them in line, maybe not. She’s done good so far. But with Lindsey Graham stabbing us in the back, we may not make it anyway.

    Ever wonder why they are so insistent in taking your money to give it to others? Juan Williams had a moment of honesty on Hannity’s radio show yesterday. Here’s the post.


    When I heard Williams worry out loud that if we don’t keep paying off the “underclass” he and his ilk will be forced to hide behind gated walls like South American cultures, I said to myself “Of course that’s the reason.”

    Read the book (www.revoltthebook.com) I wrote about this motive as one reason the Congress went along with the rogue President. It was simple.

    They are afraid.

  • KR


    Yeah, wait until we get some serious investigations in the works.

  • Bogdan from Australia

    He won’t be that amused when the newly constituted Congress will create a Special Commision For Investigation Of The Anti-American Activities.

    Yesterday, I saw that idiot Chriss Mathews, visibly scared when refering to Sarah Palin’s description of “unintended anti-American consequences of Obama’s policy”.

    He knows that the American people are furious and will demand answers about the roots of the so called “financial crisis” and who is really responsible for it.

    And he knows that the truth is different from the LSM, including himself, are telling the people.

    It will soon come out that it is not Bush’s administration but the Dems and RINOS who are responsible for it.

    The heads are going to roll…

  • Elly

    Ahahaa… good! I’m glad he’s “amused.” Amused as in “confounded that he can’t get the little peons on board.”

    Get used to it.

    @Patrick Truax: “he is not even being subtle anymore. “Amuses” him? We’ll see how amused he is when the Majority House Republicans refuse to fund socialism. (fund socialism-it almost sounds opposite of itself..)”

    Those Republicans BETTER refuse to fund the socialism. So far they have underwhelmed me with their desire to be conservative in any way.

    This is the “towering intellect” of Obama

    I heard Michael Medved today state that Obama released all his transcripts — he says to say he did not is a lie on par with bitherism.

    I’ve never seen these transcripts — so I have no clue what Medved is referring to. I would think if his grades from Harvard were so stellar they would have been trumpeted from the rooftops if they were noteworthy.

    Medved drives me crazy sometimes.
