Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens’s election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”

It’s the old “label, then attack” policy that the Democrats have used before.

Isn’t it strange — well, politics as usual — that President Obama thinks that those who oppose his health care plans are “teabag, anti-government people” ?????

Funny, I thought we were all Americans!
