Latest Lie: Obama Says He Never Made Fun of “Teabaggers” …Not True

President Obama wrote a handwritten letter to a Texas schoolteacher this week. In the letterhe addmitted that ObamaCare was not the “smart political thing” and that he was bogged down by a “toxic political environment.” He also claimed he had never made fun of “teabaggers.”

Here’s a portion of the letter he wrote to Thomas J. Ritter:
barack teabaggers

But, once again, the president wasn’t being honest.
It is no secret that Obama is quoted in an interview attacking “teabaggers.”

In Jonathan Alter’s “The Promise: President Obama, Year One,” President Obama is quoted in an interview saying that the unanimous vote of House Republicans vote against the stimulus bills “set the tenor for the whole year … That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans.”

Tea Party activists loath the term “tea baggers,” which has emerged in liberal media outlets and elsewhere as a method of mocking the activists and their concerns.

Don’t expect the lapdog media to carry this.
