Obama targets Fox News at town hall

In his 100th-day town hall meeting in St. Louis Wednesday, President Barack Obama took direct aim at the anti-tax “tea party” demonstrations .

Politico notes that it was a “veiled shot at the Fox News Channel, the cable news network closely associated with the protests.”

“When you see, you know, those of you who are watching certain news channels that on on which I’m not very popular and you see folks waving tea bags around,” the President said. “Let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our healthcare costs down over the long term, how we’re going to stabilize social security.”

Huffington Post’s Sam Stein observes, “The shot across the bow at the Tea Party demonstrators follows prior administration efforts to paint those protests as decidedly non-reality based affairs.”

Rep. Paul Broun (R) of Georgia is among the many Americans who aren’t at all sure of exactly what agenda President-Elect Barack Obama has planned for our country. In an Associated Press interview, Paul Broun’s ‘Obama dictatorship’ comments came about when he compared Obama’s proposal of a civilian national security force to that of the infamous Gestapo of Germany in World War II. The basis of Rep. Broun’s concerns stems from a speech in July, when then candidate Obama stated, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” [emphasis added] Rep. Paul Broun fears an eventual Obama dictatorship under which civil liberties, such as the right to bear arms, will be taken away from the People based upon his campaign platform.
