Obama Claims to Be “Amused” by Tea Party Rallies; Thinks Protesters Should “Thank” Him

It’s no more and no less than you would expect from the planet’s most arrogant, self-centered citizen. According to an article by Mike Memoli at Real Clear Politics, Barack Obama speaking at a fundraising event yesterday told supporters that he was “amused” by the antics of Tea Party rallyers. Then to erase any doubt about his manifest deficiencies as a leader and human being, he added, “I think they should be saying thank you.”
For a man who rode to power on the false promise of post-partisanship, Obama has missed no opportunity to insult and enrage those who exercise their constitutional right to disagree with him. This latest vindictive stunt mimics the behavior of Congress members the day they passed the health care bill, when Nancy Pelosi—wearing an expression of condescending triumphalism—marched through the crowd of protesters assembled outside the Capitol, wielding a gavel the size of Excalibur. She was joined on her escapade by members of the black caucus hoping to stir up antipathy and name-calling. When the crowd failed to oblige, the members made up lies to that effect in a futile effort to discredit those who opposed their ham-handed legislative efforts.
As for Obama, his claims to be amused by the Tea Party protests demonstrate the unfunny joke this pathetic man has metamorphosed into. Apart from his other fatal character flaws, Obama is notoriously thin-skinned. It is safe to assume that after his appearance in front of adoring, if shrinking crowds, he probably went somewhere to break a mirrror or two to dissipate his frustration.
