White House Makes Excuses for Democrats Calling Tea Party Terrorists … “Inappropriate and the Product of An Emotional Discussion”


White House making excuses for referring to Tea Party as terrorists … hoe about a formal apology?

What say you White House press secretary Jay Carney, does President Barack Obama think that it is appropriate discourse for VP Biden to refer to the Tea Party as terrorists? When faced with the question Carney responded with the lame response,that the use of the word “was a product of an emotional discussion, very passionately held positions in this debate, but that does not mean that it’s appropriate.

One reporter today asked White House press secretary Jay Carney about reports that the Veep had used the term, wondering if “the president thinks that’s appropriate discourse?”

“No, he doesn’t, and neither does the vice president,” Carney said. “And I think the vice president spoke to this and made clear that he didn’t say those words, and I think the congressman in question has said that he regrets using them.”

Carney said the use of the word “was a product of an emotional discussion, very passionately held positions in this debate, but that does not mean that it’s appropriate.  And it’s not.  The vice president doesn’t think so; the president doesn’t think so.  Any kind of comments like that are simply not conducive to the kind of political discourse that we hope to have.”

So it was not appropriate, but understandable because of the  emotional discussion. Really? However, what should we expect from one of the most partisan and confrontational Presidents ever. Can you imagine if the roles were reversed and it was the Tea Party that called Biden or Obama a terrorist?

How ridiculous and unacceptable was Biden’s comment? On the very day that Gabby Giffords returned to the House after being shot in the head and nearly killed, the same Gabby Giffords where Barack Obama at the Tuscon Memorial speech said that “WE CAN DO BETTER”. Once again Obama proves he is just words.

President Obama called for a greater civil political discourse in America, if not for ourselves, then for our children and Christina Green, the 9 year old girl who was murdered Saturday at the hands of evil. However, if we are trying to make a world that our children would be proud of, wouldn’t it start by not placing a mountain of debt apon them?

And in Christina…in Christina we see all of our children.  So curious, so trusting, so energetic and full of magic.

So deserving of our love.

And so deserving of our good example.  If this tragedy prompts reflection and debate, as it should, let’s make sure it’s worthy of those we have lost.  Let’s make sure it’s not on the usual plane of politics and point scoring and pettiness that drifts away with the next news cycle.

      To No. 1;
      There is wave building in this country like nothing I have ever saw in my life time and I don’t think any of them can swim. I have been worried about this idiots chances of getting reelected but everytime he/they open their mouths I feel better because it is always something negative about the Tea Party. It didn’t work to well for them in 2010 and I don’t think it’s working to well for them now (look at the poll numbers). I just wish the election was tomorrow because I don’t know if we can stand another year of this POS.

      So, we have leaders in high places making decisions and vocalizing based on emotion rather than critical thinking? Yikes. Then again…emotion is what got the Imposter in Chief where he is. So many threw aside any cxritical thinking.

      As a woman, I know how emotion can get the best of a person and EVERY time causes the WRONG decision. I work hard to wait until emotion has subsided prior to opening my big mouht…which is a lot smaller once the emotion has passed.

      Cannot wait to get these “terrorists/enemies of the state” out of office.

      From the same people who won’t call the the Ft. Hood Maj. Hassan a terrorist.

      Oh, great—so Moderate Conservatives—Middle Independents or full to the Right-as well as anyone who believes what the Tea Party Movement is advocating are now “Terrorists” ?

      The INSANITY from the LEFT never ceases to amuse me!

      America will once again vote with their emotions in 2012…just like they did last time. They certainly didn’t use their intelligence so why would the majority do the same this time around?
