Obama Conversation With Tea Partier Gets Heated

From Fox News.com - By - DECORAH, Iowa – President Obama got into a heated back-and-forth Monday with a Tea Party activist who demanded to know at the end of a town hall meeting here whether Vice President Biden had called Tea Partiers “terrorists” during the debt ceiling debate on Capitol Hill. In public, Obama did not directly answer the question from Iowa Tea Party activist Ryan Rhodes about Biden. But Obama fired back that he knows better than anyone what it’s like to be slammed for his political views and was not about to accept a lecture on the topic. “Now, in fairness, since I’ve been called a socialist who wasn’t born in this country, who is destroying America and taking away its freedoms because I passed a health care bill, I’m all for lowering the rhetoric," Obama said.Obama did say he would discuss the matter further with Rhodes, founder of the Iowa Tea Party, after the event. And the duo was spotted in an animated conversation a few moments later. In an interview later with Fox News, Rhodes claimed that the president had insisted that Biden had not made the original comment. Read more

Sounds like the "terrorist" made a good arguement with the anointed one. It's ironic that the anointed one mentioned his unconstitutional health care bill. Soon, the U.S. Supreme court will be striking it down. The deficit will immediately be reduced when this finally comes to pass.
