At a rally held Sunday for Terry McAuliffe, the Democrat nominee for governor of Virginia, liberal Democrats -- including President Obama -- slammed GOP nominee Ken Cuccinelli and the Tea Party as un-American extremists.
Prior to the official rally, the Arlington Patch said, Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., excoriated Tea Party conservatives, banging his fist while demanding an end to "un-American extremism" like adherence to the Constitution, freedom and fiscal sanity.
Ironically, the Patch added, Moran "criticized what he called a small group of 'mean-spirited people,' who he called 'anti-immigrant, anti-gay, anti-woman , anti-government and anti-science.'"
Obama continued the general thrust of the rally.
“Nothing makes me more nervous than when my supporters start feeling too confident,” he said. “So I want to put the fear of God in all of you.”
Obama, forgetting his recent refusals to negotiate with Republicans in Congress, slammed Cuccinelli as an ideologue unwilling to compromise, CBS News said.
He continued the acrimonious tone, falsely claiming the GOP took the nation hostage when Sen Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., sparked a partial government shutdown when he refused to consider any GOP proposal to keep the government funded.
A post at the Gateway Pundit said a Tea Party protest sprung up outside the rally. Some protesters carried Cuccinelli signs, but one person held a homemade placard that read: "Obama lied. Your insurance died. Your Doc is gone. What more could go wrong??? Terry McAuliffe could be governor."
Meanwhile, Cuccinelli used Obama's appearance to make a point about Obamacare.
"If you want to fight Obamacare, if you want to tell Washington that Virginians have had enough of Obamacare, then I need your vote," he told supporters in Roanoke.
"This race has captured the attention of the entire nation,” he said. “Not just because it’s a …race in a bellwether state that has become the face of progress in this country. But because it’s the first major race between the forces and faces of the new Republican tea party — a tea party whose social recidivism is only outgunned by its hostility to science and technology and innovation and scholarship.”
In mid-October, however, Yale professor Daniel M. Kahan discovered that those who identify themselves as members of the Tea Party had slightly higher “scientific comprehension” than their non-tea party counterparts, Mediaite reported.
“I’m a little embarrassed," Kahan said, "but mainly I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.”
Apparently, Biden never got the memo, and the campaign of hate continues.
