Where's all the uproar about this? When Perry said Texans might get kinda ugly with Bernanke, there was a huge outcry about being civil etc. But Hoffa, standing in front of the presidential seal, about to introduce Obama, tells the audience to 'take out Republicans,' gets nothing. Even the White House won't repudiate his statement. So apparently the endorse violence when it comes to Republicans. Guess if Gabby Giffords would have been a Republican, it would have been okay to shoot her.
Are you unaware that that was a clipped quote?
The part that the GOP conveniently left out is in bold:
"Everybody here's got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prize, let's take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong! Thank you very much!"
He talked about it being a battle, a war, that the union was Obama's army ready to march. He was very militaristic in his imagery. You simply can't ignore this and Obama condoned it all stepping up to the podium right after that intro and refusing to condemn the speech as of yet.
Of course we can (and should) ignore it. It was campaign rhetoric, as free of any real meaning as it gets.
"You simply can't ignore this..."
Wanna bet? I applaud what Jimmie said.
Of course, you would, you're a liberal and we.all know liberals have two sets of values, one for themselves, and one for everyone else. #nosurprisethere
Me too! About time. He and Waters....about time!!!
Exact quote! I mean it's not like it cannot be easily searched? You added content?
"We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We're going to win that war," Jimmy Hoffa said to a heavily union crowd.
"President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong," Hoffa added.
If you need to hear and see it?

That's your fair and balanced media at work.
Obama? Repudiating left-wing nastiness? That's above his conscience-listening level.
I remember a time when a foul-mouthed person like Hoffa would get a "Don't you talk about my mother that way" and a bloody nose upon calling someone an s.o.b.
And usually, rightfully so. Reckon there were no men in the crowd willing to defend their mothers?
The correct usage would be "sons of bitches" not "son of a bitches".
You better watch yourself Mr. Hoffa
The righty's are making a big deal about it....big babies.
No one else is, know why?
Because this is the kind of talk the Baggers have been using since 2007!...and much worse.
What, now you want sympathy tears for them, the Nasty of Natsy's??? Puleeeze.
Karma is b*tch, and they is getting theirs.
" You can’t teach an old dogma new tricks." [D. Parker]
Anything the Leant Leftists say is just fine with the mass media and the Democrat traitors.
Between Hoffa, and the CBC talking about "they want to hang us" BS, all this election will be about is race... because that is all the Left is about to begin with.
A bunch of racists who love to pull the race card.
What a joke they all are.
Thats okay... Al Sharpton and his race baitin crew, along with the Black Panthers, threatened to get the tea party in WA. during the Beck rally also... and we see just how far those cowards got.
Exactly what they all want.
The people divided!
The TP could have stopped at any time.......or not started at all. Now the die is cast.
Divide? It has been for a long time.
The right-wing has just had the upper hand for a very long time.
Oh yeah and it's gonna be snake eyes in November for Obama. Busted, fired.
No ideas, no plans, no more!

I got bad news for you. America is a center RIGHT country. More people identify themselves as conservative (40%) than liberal (20%). The moderates also tend to be more right than left and judging by what the liberals have done to America and Obama's polling on the economy, he's not going to be re-elected... nor is it likely that the dems will have a majority in congress much longer. The good news is you'll have much more to complain about!
They, the Leant Left and Progressives, want violent armed revolution in the streets, so they can play peace-maker and lock down on us all. And the usefuls on the left will gladly run smirking into the plan... like retards with lollipops at a fair.
Is this a script for a sci-fi movie? It bears no resemblance to the truth.
The unions are responsible for quite a bit of violence in the last months.
We see all the leftist Progressive traitors for what they are Chris. And America is about to toss you all out on your asses.
Don't think so.
No one buys that line of crap sold by the Koch Bros anymore.
We know who and what they are.....
Since they declared war on Obama...I am even MORE for Obama.
NIMBY'S hacks and money-grubs.Used daddy's money to dirty up the earth,... their private payground.
The only billionaire activist I know of is ole George Soros, the Leftists hero.
The man who sold his own to the NAZIs for the ovens... so I would check your own associations Chris.
The only billionaire activist I know of is ole George Soros, the Leftists hero.
That's because you are a reactionary!

Ahh, into the dark lair.....Cheney meets the regularly...with the One Whom He Serves...
Hate to be him when he goes. Brrrrrrr
I do not see any equating them to a man who sold his fellow Jews to the ovens.
You are comparing someone who you do not agree with their politics, to a man who sold his own to the ovens of the NAZIs... that is evil... big difference.
And mother jones is and always has been a Socialist rag that I wouldn't wipe my ass with.
And you can beat up Cheney all you want... Bush too... that doesn't bother me at all.
You all seem to think anyone who is not a Leftist is a Bush Cheney supporter.
Yes LMC, get back under that thumb immediately, stop demanding the same rights as your betters!
This event was an official Presidential event.
They spent our taxpayer money on a campaign event! Bogus!
Bachmann spends tax-payer money on clothes and make-up!
Yeah, it was all over the net.....and as she works for the gvt she hates, everything she spends is tax-payer funded.
$4,7000 to be exact. On hair and make-up. google it youself
OMG!!!!! It was on the internet. Then it must be true.
There is a recording of her bragging on it. google it and hear for youself....unless it's a fake Bachmann voice. But really, the proof is in the pudding. All you have to do is LOOK at here, and you can tell. Very Kathryn Harris-esque.
Glam em up, sex em up....men go gaga...ergo, the need for tax-payers to fund viagra, Viagra company gets rich!
No I do not believe so, repair?
Must be a technical error.
I know Chris is better at her numbers than that...
Isn't it usually Hoffa's who get taken out?
Jimmy Hoffa was like JFK? Kennedy-War hero, President of the United States. Jimmy Hoffa-Convicted felon, Mafia flunky, complete corrupt scumbag. I don't see the similarities.
You mean like our congress today and Still lead one of the strongest unions in the country.
No, I don't mean anything like that at all. Hoffa was a scumbag who more than likely ended up dying whining and crying like a schoolgirl right before he pissed his pants. You can make a hero out of him if you like but don't expect anybody old enough to remember him to.
I was commenting on that choice of words of his this morning.
interesting... I think deep down inside he thought it was funny.
"They, the Leant Left and Progressives, want violent armed revolution in the streets" like in Libya.
The left is using violent images, oh my, what ever will we do? The next time one of you start whining about crosshairs (and you will) on a map, just remember that it is always the left who wants to cause trouble.
Grim Reaper comes for everyone....then it's Katy Bar the Door. Doesn't matter how powerful you are...when it happens: face to face with.......YOU.
ugh, imagine having to FEEL all the pain you put others through??? And on a scale like these clowns??? oooooh, not fun.
Wishing death on another, typical liberal way. But scream and whine like babies when you see a crosshair on a map during a political campaign, also typical liberal way.

I started this as a question but perhaps it's better suited for a forum instead. Speculation has begun Obama will possibly drop from the 2012 presidential race, paving the way for Hillary Clinton to step in and "save" the Dems from a royal butt kicking. Do you think this is possible or...
