Video: Iowa Tea Partiers Confront Obama On Biden’s Tea Party Terrorist Remark

This is AWESOME video from Decorah, Iowa, one of Obama’s stops on his Misery Tour. Two “tea party activists”  asked Obama about Biden’s alleged anti-tea party remarks. The comment, “they (the tea party) have acted like terrorists” was made in a closed door meeting with like minded Democrats according to several sources who were there, as reported by the Politico. Obama denied that it happened. He didn’t say, “The Vice President denied it, and I take him at his word”, or some such thing. He just flat out denied that Biden used the word, terrorist, to describe tea partiers.

What makes this video incredible is the fact that actual conservatives were allowed to get so close to the Messiah. How did that happen?

UPDATE:

Here’s the video, via Breitbart TV of Obama initially taking the tea party guy’s question, and brushing him off:

So, what is he saying here? Since individuals have called the President of the United States names, then it’s OK for the Vice President to label an entire group of citizens as “terrorists”?

Wow, what a narcissist.

Yeah, he’s a Socialist, too.

Obama’s Bleak Misery Tour

photo via Weasel Zippers.

Okay, Obama’s “Magical Misery Tour” bus is not at all how I pictured it.

Actually, Obama has two new buses to use on his 3-day Midwest bus trip, costing taxpayers $1.1 million*:

“We have not been satisfied with the level of protection offered by leased buses,” said a Secret Service official.

Another official said the buses cost the service $1.1-million and are of a size and make the Secret Service finds most suitable for its equipment and protective requirements.

It’s only fitting that they would be black,  stark and bleak – depressing and grim – the complete opposite of his bright hopey-changey 2008 campaign bus, the perfect symbols for a President swamped with nothing but bad news, as a result of his own bad policies.

As Mr. Obama is increasingly overwhelmed by events, as he and his presidency shrink before our eyes, his worst tendencies are being exacerbated, his narcissism further exposed, his anger at an unaccommodating world more pronounced. A man of supreme self-regard is watching things crumble before his eyes. He is obviously not well equipped to process any of this. It is enough for one to feel, if only for a moment, some pity for Mr. Obama. These are not easy days for him, and certainly not for his country.

The Romney camp pounced on the opportunity to use the stunningly bad optics against the Campaigner in Chief.

ABC reported:

A new web video and harsh criticism emerged from the Mitt Romney camp today as President Barack Obama launched his three-day bus tour that will make stops in Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois.

Dubbing the president’s trip the “Magical Misery bus tour,” Romney said in a statement that “it is unlikely President Obama will speak with unemployed Americans, to near-bankrupt business owners, or to families struggling to survive in this economy.”

The RNC is also jumping on the opportunity to capitalize on Obama’s Misery tour bus folly:

The Republican National Committee will launch a “grassroots, media and on-the-ground” effort during President Barack Obama’s bus tour through the Midwest this week, The Daily Caller has learned. The RNC has dubbed the trip the “Debt-End Bus Tour,” or “DEBT.”

RNC chairman Reince Priebus will hold a press conference on Monday with Minnesota GOP chair Tony Sutton in Cannon Falls, Minn. — the first stop on the President’s tour — to draw attention to the slow-growing U.S. economy. …

In a guide the RNC plans to hand out Monday morning, it slams Obama’s economic policies and criticizes him for taking a so-called non-campaign trip without producing a plan to deal with the country’s debt.

In the guide, the RNC calls President Obama’s debt plan “A Big Ol’ Hunk of Nothing on Two Thick Slices of Nada.”

Priebus “came out swinging” at the “campaigner in Chief” for his “joke of a bus tour”  paid for by taxpayers in this Fox interview:

  With Obama’s approval rating at a historic low of 39% in the latest Gallup poll,  it’s hard to see how this misery tour at taxpayer expense could in any way help him. Especially given the fact that, the more he talks, the more his poll numbers go down.

In a play for 38 percent, Obama embarks today on a three day bus tour, complete with town hall meetings. Then, in a move apparently planned by his campaign team to help him out, he sets out for a ten day vacation.

Watch his numbers start to improve.

I was gonna say —when he stays away from the cameras, his numbers do seem to improve.

***

*EACH. I wasn’t sure about that when I first posted, so I purposely didn’t specify. But, it’s 1.1 million each according to CNN White House Correspondent Brianna Keilar: The President’s beastly bus

In the past, the Secret Service has leased buses, adding protective armor and advanced communications capabilities that must be stripped from the buses to restore them to their original condition before they are returned. It was an expensive practice, costing tens of thousands of dollars per month, Donovan said, and the Secret Service expects the new buses will ultimately save money over time.

So how pimped is this ride? We don’t know. The Secret Service won’t reveal details and so far members of the press have yet to sneak a peek inside.

No, wait! Fortunately for us, Doug Ross’s indefatigable cub reporter, Biff Spackle, was able to get his hands on the layout for the “Tragical Misery Tour Bus”, and has this exclusive.

Video: Pat Condell On The London Riots

An excellent rant (even by Condell’s high standards) to get Monday started:

Law and order has completely broken down in Jolly olde England, thanks to a left-wing ideology which elevates the mob above law abiding citizens. Home owners in Great Britain aren’t even allowed to defend themselves in their own houses. Condell’s absolutely correct that if the police had beaten back the mob before it had gotten out of control, race hustlers and liberal elites would have screamed bloody murder. Civilization retreats while the mob advances. Is the left happy with what it has wrought?

As the polluted flood (it is not a tide; it will not go back down again) of spite, greed and violence washes on to their very doorsteps, well-off and influential Left-wingers at last meet the filthy thing they have created, and which they ignored when it did not affect them personally.

No doubt they will find ways to save themselves. But they will not save the country. Because even now they will not admit that all their ideas are wrong, and that the policies of the past 50 years – the policies they love – have been a terrible mistake. I have heard them in the past few days clinging to their old excuses of non-existent ‘poverty’ and ‘exclusion’.

Video: Bob Wirch Was Wrong to Flee Wisconsin!

Brought to you by the good people at Our Country Deserves Better PAC and the Tea Party Express:

The Wisconsin State Journal surmised, Sunday, that an enthusiasm gap may benefit Republicans on Tuesday:

Two of their Senators, Jim Holperin, D-Conover, and Sen. Robert Wirch, D-Pleasant Prairie, face recall elections on Tuesday, and I think they should be concerned. There is, what the pollsters call, an enthusiasm gap, in favor of the Republicans. Democrats, discouraged that they don’t control the Senate might not bother to show up at the polls to defend their Senators.

Um — I hesitate to mention this, because it’s PPP (and we all know how reliable they are, right?) – On a less positive note, Markos tweeted, earlier today:

Just got @ppppolls results from two Wisconsin recall elections Tuesd. Dems will win both by double-digits. Remember, PPP nailed last week.

We’ll have to take a good look at the internals when the poll is released Monday morning.

And we would do well to listen to Professor Jacobson: Why are conservative blogs still linking to PPP?

PPP has a split personality; some of its polls are straight up and in actual elections it seems to do as well as many other polling organizations.   But PPP also engages in messaging polls, which help shape the debate.  And on its blog, PPP spins its polling furiously for Democrats.  PPP wants to have it both ways, being neutral professonal pollster and advocate; it’s a tough act to pull off.

It seems that every time I bother to look at the numbers behind a PPP poll, I find that they over sampled Democrats.  While I have not tested a majority of PPP polls, in the times I’ve looked at their numbers I’ve never seen a sampling which reflected party-affiliation reality or which oversampled Republicans.  Maybe I’ve just had bad luck, or maybe there is a problem at PPP.

A poll like this one may buck-up dispirited Dems, but it might also depress turnout to the polls; why bother when it’s already in the bag – and they’re not going to be controlling the Senate, anyway?

Michelle Malkin: Wisconsin Recall, Part Two: Fleebaggers face the music:

The Wisconsin Reporter noted last week that big congressional guns came out for Steitz and Wirch. Appropriately, fleebagger Wirch’s congressional advocate was from…Illinois: Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky.

Steitz sums up the telling difference between the two recall elections Fox6Now:

Day after day the 14 state senators stayed away, much to the frustration of Republicans across the state. After three weeks, Republicans found a way to pass the collective bargaining bill without Democrats by removing all the financial elements.

The Democrat senators returned as heroes of the protesters, but were despised by conservatives in their districts. That’s what led to the recall of three Democrats including Wirch. Steitz says, “He needs to be thrown out of office, because he abdicated his responsibility, his job, despite what he’ll say, is to be in Madison voting on bills. He should have been there arguing against the bill, voting against the bill. I disagree with you, but don’t run away.”
