Obama Steeps Tea Partiers
by

Americans for Tax Reform notes today that the president used the derogatory term for tea partiers in an interview with Jonathan Alter for his upcoming book, The Promise: President Obama, Year One, and then reminds us of his call for civility only a few days ago in his commencement speech at the University of Michigan:

Obama bemoans name-calling…

“We’ve got politicians calling each other all sorts of unflattering names…”

Obama calls for basic civility…

“Now, the second way to keep our democracy healthy is to maintain a basic level of civility in our public debate…”

Obama laments the demonizing of political opponents…

“We can’t expect to solve our problems if all we do is tear each other down.  You can disagree with a certain policy without demonizing the person who espouses it…”

Obama reminds others of the Golden Rule…

“So what do we do? As I found out after a year in the White House, changing this type of politics is not easy. And part of what civility requires is that we recall the simple lesson most of us learned from our parents: Treat others as you would like to be treated, with courtesy and respect…”

It’s difficult for me to think of a more vulgar term (if you don’t know what teabagging is, it is easy to find out on the Web) to characterize those who disagree with you. To say the least it is unbecoming of a president, and in my opinion worse than the use of profanity.
