We are now in the second day of the Obama silence on Jimmy Hoffa’s call to take Tea Party activists out. Obama is not saying anything about it and Jay Carney, White House Spokesman isn’t saying anything either. This is a contrast with the way McCain was treated in 08, when he had to apologize for the actions of another speaker at a campaign event who referred to Obama as Barack Hussien Obama.
From the Daily Caller:
White House spokesman Jay Carney repeatedly refused today to condemn aggressive statements by Teamsters president James Hoffa at a Labor Day event headlined by President Barack Obama.
“Those weren’t comments by the president … he didn’t hear it, I don’t have any comment beyond that,” Carney said in response to questions from ABC’s Jake Tapper. “Mr. Hoffa speaks for himself, he speaks for the labor movement,” Carney added during the afternoon press conference.
Obama addressed the union-friendly crowd at the Detroit event roughly 20 minutes after Hoffa declared that “President Obama, this is your army … Let’s take these sons of bitches out and take America back to where we belong.”
The term “sons of bitches” was used to refer to Republican legislators and Tea Party supporters.
Union leaders and membership support is critical to Obama’s 2012 campaign, providing an often dependable source of donations and campaign volunteers.
Tapper continued, pressing Carney to explain if the president’s repeated calls for “civility” was compatible with the White House’s silence on Hoffa’s statements.
Memo to Jake Tapper, civility only applies to conservatives. If a conservative does something terrible like pointing out a liberal’s record, we are inciting violence. But if a liberal says something, it is no big deal. It is something not even worthy of comment.
When any nut goes of and does the most minor infraction, the Tea Party is expected to denounce the person, whether he or she had anything to do with the Tea Party.
Obama is not the only one tying to exercise their right to remain silent. Debbie Wasserman Schultz dodged questions left and right on Fox this morning.
From Fox Nation:
In a heated exchanged, Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz repeatedly ducked questions on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday about Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa’s call for workers to combat the tea party and “take these son-of-a-bitches out.”
Wasserman Schultz tried to turn the tables on Fox and called out their news coverage, while refusing to address Hoffa’s remarks at President Barack Obama’s Monday rally in Detroit where he called on workers to wage war on the tea party.
“Fox and Friends” host Gretchen Carlson repeatedly pressed Wasserman Schultz for a comment, with the DNC chair attempting to stay on message by stating only that “the American people want us to focus on working together” to create jobs.
Americans are pretty outraged by Hoffa’s remarks and by the silence of Obama and the Democrats.
When will Obama denounce Hoffa’s remarks? When will Obama realize he is the President of all Americans, not just Democrat Americans.
When will Obama denounce Hoffa’s remarks?
Who knows, but we in the Tea Party need to keep demanding he do so.
This will never stop Barrack Hussein. To him the saying "You are judged by the company you keep" means absolutely nothing. If anyone believes the "interrogation" by Jake Tapper and the dodging of Debbie Wasserman SLUT Schultz wasn't orchestrated you don't understand the well oiled machine that the media has become for Barrack Hussein.
Had this been at a TEA Party rally the media would be all over this like white on rice.
Remember, in 2008 the media propelled this inexperienced, incompetent Junior Senator to the White House. They have their reputaions, for what they're worth, at stake. They will do, say or avoid whatever it takes to protect their little trophy president.
Debrajoe Smith-Beatty: He stands behind the thugs.
Yes, Obama "leads" from the rear.
Judson, I challenge you, and other Tea Party groups nationwide, to publicly charge Obama with TREASON. That will give you some undeniable ammunition to use in this clear threat to the Tea Party. I too, have publicly called on Obama, Carney, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz to condemn these remarks by Jimmy Hoffa, especially given the fact that Obama himself recently called for a civil discourse. They refuse, so let's come out big. The fact that Obama has remained silent about the charges of TREASON constitutes his silent admission of the facts.
New Hampshire State Representative Harry Accornero has publicly charged Obama with TREASON. This has gone international at http://www.orbusmax.com/ Right column; highlighted in blue. We're on radio shows talking about it, with more interested. Let's get the words TREASON and OBAMA out there more. This can only grow, and we need something big to go against Obama and his riot-inciting words before riots are actually started. Let's get him out legally, obeying our Constitutional duties as We the People, citizens of the United States of America.
To "take out" means to kill. Hoffa is threatening to kill Tea Party members. He said that the unions were Obama's army. Obama spoke at the union meeting twenty minutes after Hoffa said this. He must have heard it or been told about it.
Obama has not disavowed Hoffa's threats. Therefore, he must agree with them. Keep your powder dry.
