Face To Face: Obama Questioned By Tea Partiers

“Then why doesn’t somebody pass a balanced budget amendment.”

For most Americans it is a golden opportunity to meet the POTUS.  So when Obama came in town for a town hall meeting in Iowa a couple of tea party members decided it was a great chance to ask the President a few simple questions.  The President, did his best to answer tough questions from the very people that ran much of his political power base in Congress out of office.  Well, that is while he slowly drifted away from them to shake the hands of more gitty supporters.  Watch:

The gentlemen that was questioning Obama is Ryan Rhodes.  Because of the music it is hard to hear the conversation between the Rhodes and Obama, but one thing is clear – he is did not take kindly to Obama’s VP Joe Biden calling tea partiers “terrorists.”  Obama had little to say to satisfy Rhodes’ feelings against Biden (and Janet Napolitano) other than he agrees that everyone should “tone down” the rhetoric.  That being said he made it a point to mention that people say things about him too:  “Now, in fairness, since I’ve 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’m all for lowering the rhetoric.”

Rhodes called int o Rush Limbaugh’s radio program today to discuss the event:
