    One of the most conservative members of Congress says President Obama must be completely out of touch with reality for making light of the recent Tea Party gatherings around the country.



    President Obama said during a Democratic fundraiser in Miami that he was "amused" by anti-tax Tea Party rallies that took place prior to and on Tax Day (April 15). The president told the gathering that he has cut taxes, contrary to the claims of the protestors, and he commented, "You would think they'd be saying 'thank you.'"

    Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) attended two Tea Party rallies in Washington, DC, on April 15, and he contends the president's comments are amusing.

    "The president has to be completely out of touch with America if he's amused by what's going on here," King argues. "We are not amused by what he is doing. [For] the President of the United States to be amused and to say that we all ought to say 'thank you' for what he's done to our economy in this country, the best way to respond to that, I guess, is to laugh."

    The congressman wonders if the president will be amused by the results of the upcoming mid-term elections.

    It's a shame the president can't be a real leader and step up with an acknowledgment of their concerns...I mean, how hard would it be for him to make one simple symbolic unifying statement on tax day?



    "Hey fellow citizens of the Tea Party, I hear your concerns and we're working hard to find rational solutions to these complex issues!"

    I'm sure Obama won't be quite so amused come November.

    There is a forum for this, why do you start such threads here?

    The big government dickheads will soon be along to tell us soon how we are all wrong, racist and whatever because we refuse to do what they do, lick the dingle berries off Barry's ass.

    Just more condescending behavior from Obama. He is the most arrogant person I've ever seen. Unbelievable. He truly is in love with himself, will not admit that he has ever done anything wrong in his entire life, and he damned sure isn't going to take any criticism from anybody. Just like he said about the bills he's been pushing through: We're going to pass this ... with you or without you. Sort of overstepping the boundaries between the Executive and Legislative branches of government.

    So, he finds the Tea Party people ... "amusing."

    To his credit, he did try to keep it light.

    To his discredit, he continues to mock mainstream America and its concerns, and I don't care how 'intelligent' he is, that is neither unifying nor smart.

    He obviously isn't getting that the people out there are smart enough to know that the few bucks some gratuitously got in their paychecks isn't even a spit in the wind compared to the trillions of dollars borrowed that they and their children for generations will be expected to pay.

    His schtick simply isn't working with the average American anymore.
