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.

  • jonyjoe101

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

  • Slappy

    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.

    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. 🙂

    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..)

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

    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.

    The Tea Party sure went up President thin skin’s butt a mile. he’s not amused, he’s pissed. This is Narccicist Personality Disorder.

    Yeah, your so amused and unconcerned you take time out to mock them. Anyone unconcerned would ignore it. Someone that is terrified acknowledges it and mocks it. he can’t hide his fear anymore.

  • Obama is offended by the “TEA Party” movement. We are offended by Obama’s constant bow movement.

  • He’ll have plenty of time for reflection on his mistakes serving the longest lame-duck presidency in history. He probably already knows it and that’s why he is in such a rush. Things are looking better for Jimmy Carter every day.

  • Sandy

    Poor Obama, Healthcare was meant to be passed last summer without so much as a whimper from from the electorate. Instead after the rancorous Healthcare Debate and the Stimulus which didn’t create even one job–we see a man so bent on the destruction of this nation that he can’t see the anger being demonstrated by the American people in the form of Tea Parties.

    Gives new meaning to the phrase. He laughed till he cried.

    “they should be saying thank you”

    As in, “Thank you sir, may I have another?”

    Seriously… did President Reagan EVER mutter those words? I’m sure he never even had that thought in his head – he was our servant! Not our master! Even though the master has nothing on our servant.

    Even on its face – if we did get a tax cut – should we say thank you??? Thank you for giving me my money back???

    Liberalism IS a mental disorder.

    Lefty at tea party: Obama hasn’t raised taxes, wingnuts!

    Obama broke this promise barely two weeks into his presidency by signing a bill that included a 156-percent increase in the federal cigarette tax, which not only hits the nonwealthy but is one of the most regressive taxes around. By ATR’s count, the health care bill Obama signed last month includes another seven tax hikes that affect the under-$250,000-a-year crowd. In fact, since four of these changes will increase people’s income tax bills, they violate even the edited version of Obama’s pledge that he presented on Saturday. For example, as Peter Suderman noted last week, the law raises the threshold for deducting medical expenses from 7.5 percent of income to 10 percent. As a result, people with substantial medical expenses will pay more income tax. But as I noted in a column last November, “When the president does it, it’s not a tax.”

  • daryl

    See if tea-parties are still so “amusing” in November you smirking pos.
    Once the Congress changes hands and conservatives take back control of the purse strings, your piggy banks are gone, and your auto and seiu goons neutered, you might see things differently.
    Bill Clinton did.
    He became so despondent that the only thing that would mollify him was illicit BJs from interns in the oval office. You might try that, but somehow I don’t think you have the balls for it.
    Maybe Barney can throw you a “teabag”
    party instead. Now I’ll bet you’d “APPRECIATE” that.

  • Obambam is just using Alinsky tactic #5 “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” and tactic #12 “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polorize it.” But WE ARE ONTO HIS RADICAL PLAN and will USE IT AGAINST HIM. Alinksy works both ways people!!! At our disposal is Rule #1 “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have,” (they are running scared folks), Rule 2 “Never go outside the expertise of your people” (they don’t have the skills to infiltrate the tea party OR argue their socialist agenda with the informed, EDUCATED, conservative American AS Illustrated in their EPIC FAIL to infiltrate tax day protests). Rule #3 “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy” (well…how difficult can this be!), Rule #4 “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules” (aint it a shame all those poor Congress critters voted themselves out of their own health insurance LOL!), Rule #6 “A good tactic is one your people enjoy” (we will keep coming back for MORE cause true Americans ALWAYS RISE TO THE CHALLENGE of ALL ENEMIES foreign and DOMESTIC…our incentive is FREEDOM not free stuff from the governments redistribution of OUR wealth), Rule #8 “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” (Attack from all sides, never giving them the chance to rest, regroup, recover or restrategize)….and I could go on and on. I beg of all PATRIOTS to study these tactics…use them…turn them on America’s domestic enemies among who are Obama, the media, the socialist radicals who have infiltrated our country via a dumbed down educational system and dependance on the nanny state. Don’t get angry at the arrogance of Obama and his ilk…make him drink a spoonful of his own medicine. Seeing him go down will be our reward…and he IS going down…down on his knees as WE ALL WILL…just keep on practising that bow Obama…judgement day is coming. God bless America.

    …Rule #3 “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy” …

    I’d like to elaborate on this one. People in this country are not upset over what the current administration and Congress say are the aim of the offending legislation (promoting the general welfare of our country). They are upset because the legislation is not rationally directed to that goal.

    That our Congress and Administrative branch should be directed to employing creaky, faulty tactics — overtaxing, picking your friends’ friends as beneficiaries of tax money, providing incentives for failure and inaction — is unacceptable to people who know from experience what it takes to have a vibrant economy.

    We know how to do better than this.

    The economic policy of the current White House, and the current set of Congressional leaders is wasteful and stupid, which is why we oppose it. The current economic policy of both Houses of Congress and the White House needs to be sent back to the dustbin of history.

    Alinsky’s tactic to ridicule. Obama stating he is amused is him stating that the Tea Party Movement and participants are a joke! He is blowing the whole movement and the people off as irrelevant and nonsensical. Obama is the only joke, and no matter how amused he is, he still looks like the fool.

    Richard Romano #20, Michael Medved kept telling us during the primaries that McCain was a terrific candidate.
    He also said that people had been making too big a deal about the EU, when look! the French and Dutch voted against the EU Constitution. As if that would stop the Eurocrats.

    Medved is not as smart as he thinks. He just puts on his supercilious tone and that little sigh of exasperation, and takes a posture of “I’m reasonable; you guys are paranoid conspiracists.” He has used harsher language against some on the right (e.g. “piece of human filth”) than he uses against leftists.

    He also thinks we should be nicer to illegals because the “only” crime they’ve committed is breaking into our country illegally — no fake IDs, no gangs, etc.
