Well, well, well! Looks like a certain somebody doesn’t appreciate the *unserious* tea parties that have sprung up all across the country. Look at what he had to say at his big 100th day town hall meeting in Arnold, MO:
“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.”
First of all, unless I’m mistaken, all of the news channels covered the tea parties on April 15th, although some less respectfully than others. Second of all, the tea parties weren’t about health care. They were about his out of control spending. Third, WTF? “let’s not play games and pretend that the reason [for the deficit] is because of the Recovery Act.”?! Who does he think he’s kidding?
The reason people have taken to the streets in the large numbers they have, is precisely because of how the massive spending bills he’s pushed through in his first wretched, nightmarish 100 days, have quadrupled the deficit.
Speaking of which, I’m still waiting for media reports on the protest that was being organized for his Arnold town hall. Keep an eye on Gateway Pundit for coverage later today, as he will surely have it.

The rhetorican has a wager for the President:
Let’s play a game in which we bet which – your agenda or the Tea Party movement – will outlast the other. My money is on the big crowds.
When even the AP calls Obama out on his b.s., you know it’s egregious.
