Video: Obama talks about the tea partySubmitted by northstar on Tue, 03/30/2010 - 14:53
He's connecting the core group of the tea party to the ones that are concerned about the debt and bog government. Seems to me he is trying to make the birthers the original tea party which is not true.
He said around that "core" in the tea party is a circle of people "who are concerned about the deficit, who are legitimately concerned that the federal government may be taking on too much."
He said the "emergency measures" he took over the last year to give taxpayer money to banking institutions and automobile companies "fed that sense that things are out of control."
