James Hoffa: Tea Party Sons of Bi**hes – Obama Thanks Him. Biden: Tea Party Barbarians – Obama Silent

What a way for a U.S. Vice President to talk about the Americans he serves. We are the “barbarians at the gate,” he told the AFL-CIO today in a virtual townhall. Unions are “the only non-governmental power” that can defeat them, he said. James Hoffa, President of the Teamsters calling the Tea Party Sons of Bitches might be expected from him, but certainly we didn’t expect Barack Obama to thank him for it. And note that Hoffa excludes the Tea Party from ‘working Americans.’ Liberal sites are crying foul, saying it is clear that Hoffa was urging Democrats to vote to “take us out.” See that below along with two videos below.

Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. and Barack Obama

UPDATE 9-6-11: Hey TBogg readers from FireDogLake, thanks for visiting.

“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 Jr. 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.

You can see from the first video below that it has been shortened at several points, and the following is one of the comments edited out:

[Hoffa] Everybody here’s got to vote. If we go back and keep the eye on the prizelet’s take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong! Thank you very much!

To which Obama thanked him and said he was proud of [his man], James Hoffa, who knows a thing or two about being “taken out. Expected behavior or not, it’s creepy to hear Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. talking about ‘taking us out,’ even if doing it through the ballot box. Hoffa made these comments knowing Obama would follow him to the podium.

Oddly, Weekly Standard is not using the word “Tea Party,” but rather “Republicans” catching Hoffa and Biden’s wrath, but some in the Tea Party are not Republicans, and the Tea Party does not profess to be a GOP entity. I predict this will not help America’s unions and it will not help Joe Biden keep his job. UPDATE: Chris at Wyblog reminisces about the Union’s fondness for voting and the ballot box.

  • WAR?

    Bring-it-on, you Brylcreemed palooka

    • mindy

      Don’t take the bait !!! The only way Obama can stop the 2012 election is by declaring Marshall Law. And in order to do that there must be civil unrest. Patriots and Tea Partiers….keep fighting to save America but use the Constitution and peaceful marches in DC !!!!!!! Remember what Glenn Beck told us….

      • essbird

        I can’t swallow a lesson in Constitutional Law from someone who doesn’t know how to spell “martial.” That’s not Marshall, as in Matt Dillon, rather martial, as in Mars, the God of War, meaning military rule. And don’t even imagine Obama will impose it, want to impose it, or have cause to impose it.

        Far better to spend your time figuring out who got all the money from your 401k.

  • Let em talk … they will be gone after 2012.

  • Forget all the politics and serious implications of the name ‘Hoffa.’ I just want to know where he’s buried, so to speak. You gotta hand it to the mob. They kept this secret, secret as far as I know, through all the blabbermouths in their ranks who ratted out their own for plea deals.

    Oh crap, I just offed myself for dissin’ the wiseguys.

    • Hi Stanford, maybe WikiLeaks has a clue? Yeah, how does this stay secret for such for a long time?

  • Man oh man am I ready to take these people on… Can’t wait for 2012..

    • REvans

      The Unions and most of the Dems are the only thing keeping this country from becoming a 3rd world country of min wage slaves, thank you tea baggers for making things slide down hill even faster than the so called normal republicans anti worker = anti American = Treason

  • They sound like yippy little dogs to me. Scared of us.

    • They tell us who they are terrified of… by who they try to destroy… But what the Libs don’t realize, we ain’t going down. If anything, they are.
      Oh.. by the way.. I just made the best potroast ever… lol

      • David, potroast? Yum. But of course, my hubby says I hold that distinction:-)

  • Obama needs the unions and they need him. When he is out of office in Jan. 2013 the unions will be fully investigated and heads will roll.

    • findalis, you are so optimistic:-)

  • we can only pray

  • pasta65

    Don’t selectively qoute.

    Use the compete qoute in all of its contextual glory.

    That, however, would be too much work for you nitwits.

    • pasta65 – what did I leave out?

      • notjenna

        You don’t have teh Google™? You should get it, it’s free! To answer your question here’s the full sentence:

        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!”

  • We are explaining in a short post why the Labor Unions will be disappointed on the efforts of the NLRB to give them more power by pointing out the complications they face in a 2010 Supreme Court decision that requires them a quorum of three to pass any rulings.

  • Let them run their mouth. It will come back to bite them in the butt. Old saying is Let em over load their mouth from their a***. That is exactly what they are doing.
    Biden is the gaff-gift that keeps on giving. Now if only the Republicans have the guts to turn his words on him. Insstead they will allow the Left to spin Biden and Hoffa’s words into something “nice”.

    Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, the Republican Theme since 08.
