President Thin-Skin Pokes At Tea Bag Protesters

Obama took a jab at the Tea Bag protesters today in St. Louis.

President Thin-Skin tries to defend quadrupling the US deficit in his first year while attacking the “tea bag” protesters… He fails:

Obama also got a few lies in- “Giving taxcuts to the wealthy. We tried that formula for 8 years. It did not work.”
Actually, everyone got a taxcut with Bush and it did work. The deficit dropped 4 of the 8 years even with 9-11, Katrina, the Clinton Recession, and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It wasn’t until the democratic-created mortgage crisis that the economy tanked.
But, keep on talking, Mr. President. It’s not like the media is going to correct you.

Politico reported:

Asked about fiscal discipline and entitlements reform, Obama seemed to be repressing a smile as he jabbed critics of his spending plans.

“Those of you who are watching certain news channels on which I’m not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around, Obama said, “let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security.”

“But,” Obama continued, “let’s not play games and pretend that the reason [for the deficit] is because of the Recovery Act.”

Well… Evidently all of those tea bags he’s getting in the mail are getting on his nerves.

By the way… There were hundreds of those tea party protesters outside Fox High School today protesting his irresponsible spending.
