Obama Smears Others But Continues To Lecture Others About CivilityTopics: Political News and commentaries
As Michelle Malkin aptly notes, how many more selective civility police lectures can we take from this vulgarity-clogged White House? After all, the hypocrisy seems to never stop.
Take for example this from ABC News:
Three days after he decried the lack of civility in American politics, President Obama is quoted in a new book about his presidency referring to the Tea Party movement using a derogatory term with sexual connotations.Not only is Obama a hypocrite, don't think for a moment that he's not beyond stifling and even criminalizing dissent and intimidating its ideological opponents.
In Jonathan Alter's "The Promise: President Obama, Year One," President Obama is quoted in an interview saying that the unanimous vote of House Republicans vote against the stimulus bills "set the tenor for the whole year ... That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans."
Tea Party activists loath the term "tea baggers," which has emerged in liberal media outlets and elsewhere as a method of mocking the activists and their concerns.
On Saturday, the president delivered a commencement address at the University of Michigan where he said one way "to keep our democracy healthy is to maintain a basic level of civility in our public debate ... But we can't expect to solve our problems if all we do is tear each other down."
