Obama Says Tea Party Is Built Around Core Group of Birthers (Video)
Remember… He’s a uniter not a divider.
President Obama today told the state-run media that he believes the tea party is built around a core group of birthers.
The “spread the wealther” also claimed he was not a socialist.
The AP reported:
President Barack Obama says he believes the Tea Party is built around a “core group” of people who question whether he is a U.S. citizen and believe he is a socialist.
But beyond that, Obama tells NBC he recognizes the movement involves “folks who have legitimate concerns” about the national debt and whether the government is taking on too many difficult issues simultaneously.
In an interview broadcast Tuesday on NBC’s “Today” show, Obama said he feels “there’s still going to be a group at their core that question my legitimacy.” But he said he didn’t want to paint Tea Party activists “in broad brushes” and he hopes to win over members who have “mainstream, legitimate concerns.”
Of course, the socialist label is something he’s worked hard to earn. The birther label is just another instance of this hard core leftist smearing those who oppose his disastrous policies and record.
