White House responds to Biden “Tea Party Terrorists” statement and Dems “Hostage Taking”

August 2, 2011

Excerpts from President Obama’s speech January 12th, 2011 at the Tuscon memorial honoring the victims of the Gabriel Gifford’s shooting:

………But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized — at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do — it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds……….

…………And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud………….

……….All of us — we should do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children’s expectations……….

Recent statements made by leading Democrats regarding the Tea Party and their demand for some fiscal responsibility before agreeing to a debt ceiling increase:

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver D, MO: This deal is a sugar coated Satan sandwich

This montage from a Rush Limbaugh transcript via freerepublic.com :

DEBBIE “BLABBERMOUTH” SCHULTZ: …our Republican colleagues to hold our economy hostage.

CHUCK-U SCHUMER: (rotunda noise) It didn’t say, “Hold America hostage.”

JOHN OLVER: The debt limit has never before been held hostage.

JACKSON: No other President has been stuck up, shook down, or held hostage!

And from politico.com comes news that the Vice-President of the United States, Joe Biden himself said the Tea Party “acted like terrorists”:

Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit, according to several sources in the room.

Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.

“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”

And don’t forget all the establishment media that has likened the freshman House Republicans as “suicide bombers”, “hostage takers” and plain “terrorists” as well.

Listed below is the White House response to such uncivil and derogatory discourse:

















What? You don’t have your Little Orphan Annie secret solution to make the invisible pixels on your screen show the President’s denunciation of such vile and repugnant comments?

No worries, take a look at your last paycheck. Send the entire amount to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, c/o Barack Obama and then just sit back and wait. It will be included in your first government welfare check.
