Portman, Batchelder Attend Teeny Tiny Tea Party Event

Filed under: Taxes & Government — Tom @ 11:00 am

Of all the Buckeye State Tea Party events to attend yesterday, Rob Portman and Bill Batchelder chose what was likely the smallest one:

Hmm. I wonder why?

Uh, here’s why (HT Right Ohio):

While (Missouri Congressman Roy) Blunt has reached out to Tea Party activists, Portman has kept them at arm’s length so far.

Portman’s spokesperson is quoted saying that “the campaign is ‘working actively’ to schedule appearances with ‘about a dozen’ Tea Party groups.” Maybe she meant “a few dozen people.”

  1. In related news, Obama makes the political equivalent of a death wish: He claims he cut taxes and the tea partiers should be thankful!!!

    Obama suffers from a fatal combination of arrogance, obtuseness and audacity in making slogans. The man actually believes he can blow enough smoke to cover up his fiscal incompetence. Tom, I find it hard to believe anyone could be this incompetent, it comes down to raw power, Obama thinks he has enough people on their knees fearful of losing their handouts that will believe and go along with anything he says. Barack Obama = Robert Mugabe

    At no time in the history of the US has the average person in America demonstrated in the streets for such a length of time against government policies. During the Vietnam War, it was college students who didn’t want to be drafted and leftists who stirred the pot, not the average person. During the Iraq war, it was leftists and pacificists who opposed government policy, not the average person. Barack Obama is facing an historic occurrence not repeated since the foundation of the Republic and he acts like King George… Shocking, breath takingly shocking.

    Obama is either very forgetful of all the tax bills he signed into Law or he is a selective teller of the truth. King George indeed!
