BREAKING: TEA PARTY ACTIVISTS CONFRONT OBAMA IN IOWA (Video)

They wanted to know why the Vice President called patriotic Americans “terrorists.”

Tea party activists confronted Barack Obama in Decorah, Iowa tonight during one of the stops on his Magical Misery Tour. The tea party activists asked Obama about Joe Biden’s comments that tea partiers were “terrorists.” Obama said it didn’t happen.

Score one for the hobbits.

Greta Wire has more on the confrontation, via Free Republic:

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.

    Good for those Iowans – particularly Tea Partiers.

    Now he can take this back to his goon squad and ask if they should continue bashing the Tea Party or if they should back off.

    Obama is one and done.

  • dwd

    And Obama played word games, saying HE wasn’t calling anyone a terrorist. The guy in the crowd never said you did, Obama, he clearly said Biden.

    This was also the perfect opportunity for Obama to say “Tea Partiers are NOT terrorists”, but he didn’t. What did he do? He said he himself has never called them terrorists.

    I suppose the miscreants from the media will give this guy the ” Joe the Plumber ” treatment and attempt to find out anything unsavory about him. He should probably expect a rather in depth IRS audit as well. Barry ain’t gonna let it go, cuz you have to punish your enemies.

    If the Tea Party are “terrorists” to Biden. And according to progressive ideology of moral relativism that one person’s terrorist is another person’s freedom fighter (an ideology Biden pays homage to). Doesn’t that mean the Tea Party GOPer are freedom fighters according to progressive “reality-based” logic? Get me headline re-write! “Biden Calls Tea Party GOP ‘Bunch of Freedom Fighters'”.

    The Subprime Blowhard shoots his mouth off about a lot of things, but he hasn’t said a word about the epidemic of black flash mobs. Someone should ask him about it.

    Is there any question that if the mobs were white, and they were attacking blacks, the Blowhard’s teleprompter would be overheating?

    Someone should also ask him about those wars he’s botching. How’s that “matter-of-days” war in Libya going, Mr. Blowhard, sir? What about those multiple bombings in Iraq, Your Subprimeness?

  • McCloud

    Even if Biden didn’t actually say the word he appeared to agree with the characterization by Democrats in the room. Obama should have gone on national TV and disowned the notion that anyone in his administration would call the Tea Party something he won’t even call real terrorists– but it would mess up his “evil rich are evil, and tea party is not willing to compromise ” narrative. So he says nothing–leading to this.

    Obama wouldn’t know the truth if it hit him in the head. All Americans should have a real problem with someone who seems unable to take accountable or responsibility for his actions or those of the people who surround him. In this case, Joe Biden did call tea partiers terrorists.

  • 4dees

    Is everyone aware that the buses Obama is using on this Magical Mystery Tour of a “campaign” (oops, he said he isn’t campaigning so that we the taxpayers have to pay for it) are not rented, as is normally done, but rather they are purchased with our tax $$$. He is campaigning and it’s obvious to everyone.

    The bus on this bus tour has to have a bomb proof room in it that has wall just like the beast. The beast might even follow on the motorcade from AF1 to the hay. Even if you hate O with all your being you would want him save. But just think on how much gas that bus uses and weights.

    The terrorist comment was still just a rumor that was leaked by the operatives. They need to heckel something that is on tape, like why is gitmo still open and when did weeks become months in Libya.

    Being called terrorists is horrible and I cannot say how much I admire the Tea Party Activist
    for putting Obama’s feet to the fire.

    Obama comparing what people say about him in any instance shows the way pitiful Obama operates. Everything and anything always comes back to him and he is a child.

    Just answer the question. And I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t give the orders for Biden and others to cut down the Tea Party! The tea party?, it is made up of Americans who are sick of the spending, Obama care and too much government in our lives.

    Many are over 45 years of age. Government works for us not the other way around and this nation’s debt was the real tipping point for all those in the Tea Party and America.

    If Obama knew what was best for him he would have answered the question and left it at that. In stead he shows once again just how immature he really is.

    He has a tendency to make everything about him or worse sorry for him. Where was the outrage when Jackson and Pelosi call Republicans racists. I have been tired of the names and the left just won’t stop, until Obama is out of office as he has definitely set the tone.

    Did you see the bus? It’s black with no US flag in sight! For a campaign bus, this is yet another insult to the American people. BTW – some flags of Islam have a black background. Who the [email protected] campaigns in a black bus? Well, Comrade Barry apparently does.

    More on Perry:

    In an interview with an Iowa radio station on Monday, the Republican presidential contender explained his role as the Gore campaign’s Texas chairman by saying that “this was Al Gore before he invented the Internet and got to be Mr. Global Warming.”

    “The governor has always been a conservative and didn’t agree with Al Gore on every issue, global warming being one of them,” Miner said in an email to POLITICO.
    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0811/61428.html

    In 1988 Algore was in his 12th year in Congress, and he was clearly a liberal (lifetime ACU rating at this time of 16). But we are to believe that Gore’s Texas campaign chairman was a conservative?

    Yeah Perry was a conservative…He started as a “Pitbull” on the legislature appropriations slashing the state budget. Do some research. He went republican when Phil Graham was recruiting conservatives for the GOP before the state went red and GWB met him and brought him over. The democrats have never forgiven him for switching…they never forgave Graham either.

    Do some research on Governor Perry before ragging on him Palinistas. You guys aren’t helping Governor Palin with your sniping attacks on Governor Perry. Keep it up and you risk marginalizing Governor Palin. She hasn’t even stated she’s entering the race yet. You’re only helping President Downgrade. You guys are no better than Obama worshipers when you resort to lefty tactics of unresearched preemptive strikes on the Republican frontrunner in this race. You’re getting as bad as the Obots or worse. We all know how important this race is and your playing right into the hands of Obama,Reid and Pelosi. If you guys keep it up there will be four more years of Obama and no future for this country. United we stand, divided we fall has grave implications and you need to understand this, because trust me Obama and Axelrod know this too.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YGiuF97fRE Dr G

    Don’t get over confident. Obama has the US treasury and the printing press available to bribe the electorate, and there are a large number of welfare parasites who will always vote democratic. Also remember that Both of the last 2 republican presidents sucked pretty bad themselves,as would McCain have (maybe not as bad as O), so just voting republican isn’t going to lead us to the promised land.

    I’ll be voting Libertarian, as usual, unless Ron Paul gets the nomination. The rest of the Republican field doesn’t have the bonifides.

    If Obama were smart, he would get a quad pad and a pen and take notes. The American public is trying to tell him what they think he is doing wrong. The Tea Party movement is composed of rational American voters who are dissatisfied with the increase in size, authority and cost of the Federal government. If the president has any “Hope” of saving his job, he must convince the Tea Party he really is listening.

    However, this bus caravan is just another Obama lecture tour. He may be the last man on Earth to realize that his quest for a second term is “Hopeless.”

    Here are the questions that I wish somebody would ask Obama….

    Dear President Obama,

    On April 27th of this year, with great media fanfare, the White House released what was purported to be a copy of your Long Form Birth Certificate.

    Subsequent to it’s release, several computer and typographical experts declared the pdf copy of your birth certificate a likey forgery.

    Requests to forensically examine the alleged Original 1961 Document, have been made and have been flatly denied or simply ignored by the HI Dept of Health.

    The HI Dept. of Health has also made the absurd claim that making this document availible for forensic examination would violate your rights to privacy.

    How can you claim a right to privacy for a document that you already released to the public?

    More recently, the HI Dept. of Health refused to comply with a subpoena to produce the alleged birth document for forensic examination.

    If this document is authentic, why won’t you allow the document to be authenticated?

    Also, how is the HI Dept. of Health’s refusal to comply with a subpoena consistent with your rethorical promises of complete transparency?

    Obama dodged the question, compared the TP to Tim McViegh, denied the words of his VP, and then changed the subject to his favorite – himself.

    “What about all the attacks against meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?

    I’d like to see how he would hold up under the scrutiny, the lies, rumors, falsehoods, etc…that the MSM put out about Sarah Palin.

    Throw in two dozen frivolous lawsuits (All of which were tossed out of court, or won by Palin) with another hundred waiting in the wings, and Obama would crack like a dropped egg.

    Meanwhile, Palin turned a major negative into a positive, and became even more successful and went from potential bankruptcy to Millionaire.

    Yet some ignorant people continue to call her “Stupid” despite the fact she is 99.9999% smarter and wealthier than the people calling her names and questioning her intelligence and ability to lead and get things done.
