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.

    How did a hobbit terrorist slip past security?

  • Sickofobama

    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.

  • Swifty

    He wouldn’t vote on an answer so he went “present” as usual. What a putz.

    Once aroused, the Hobbits are a formidable foe…. Obama, we knew Gandalf. You are no Gandalf.

    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.

    Who is the Hobbit candidate?
    With no viable alternative other than RINOs and an isolationist- Obama wins again in 2012.

    I hope this Patriot is ready for his Joe the Plumber proctoscope examination from the MSM Obamabots and the Chicagoesque thugs at the White House. They WILL come after him for daring to question the WON! I will be praying for him tonight!

    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.

    Hey President Zero,

    Stop using my tax dollars for your campaign tour. You are acting like a union thug who uses union dues for his own benefit. Knock it off!

    I Love Alan West!
