To the best of my knowledge Chancellor Obama has completely ignored and disregarded the Tea Party movement from inception to today. In fact, has he ever even directly aknowledged Tea Partiers? There's change in the air, an AP report just popped up today and surprise, surprise he employs Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, #13:
---Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.AP on the Obamanation:
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says he believes the Tea Party is built around a "core group" of people who question whether he is a U.S. citizen and believe he is a socialist.
Alas, it is so predictable. On the other hand (or slight of hand), he attacks then aknowledges, kind of:
But beyond that, Obama tells NBC he recognizes the movement involves "folks who have legitimate concerns" about the national debt and whether the government is taking on too many difficult issues simultaneously.
I can relate. I guess that the White House features a 'core group' of Marxist-Leninists bent on turning America into a Banana Republic. But beyond that, I recognize that the White House also has "folks that simply just want to spread the wealth" and are taking on too many things, simultaneously.
UPDATED: Gateway Pundit grabbed the Today Show video. Be sure to watch it. I find it ludicrous how the Lawyer in Chief Rule 13's then tries to sound conciliatory.....
