    Obama spars with Tea Party activist


    US President Barack Obama went head-to-head with a prominent conservative Tea Party activist, in a microcosm of a political clash that will play out in the 2012 election.

    Ryan Rhodes, a leader of the group in Iowa, took on Obama during an open-air town hall meeting, which marked a moment of new intensity in the president's campaign for a second term.
    Rhodes shouted out that the president's calls for more civility in politics had little chance of coming to pass after "your vice president is calling people like me, a Tea Party member, a 'terrorist.'"
    His question referred to media reports that Vice President Joe Biden made such a remark in a private meeting with House of Representatives Democrats at the height of a debt showdown earlier this month.

    "I absolutely agree that everybody needs to try to tone down the rhetoric," he said, before going on to detail some of the more explosive charges that conservatives have laid against him.
    "In fairness, since I have been called a socialist who wasn't born in this country, who is destroying America and taking away its freedoms because I passed a health care bill, I am all for lowering the rhetoric."

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Brother, I will not participate with you in morass, if you cannot get back on topic; the appeal is for you to leave it alone and focus on the thread's topic, for the second and last time.

    Peace In,

    President Obama isn't weak at all,people say this because his leadership skills do not look like what many of us think as leadership. Like having a­ cowboy, push, shove, threaten, blackmail, and do anythin­g to get i­t done men­tality. He isn't Bush,Clinton, or Reagan. But what he is, and will continue to be is a leader that get things done in his own calm ,and intelligent manner.

    Peace!
