Obama Loses It, Grabs Tea Party Woman to Shut Her Up (Video)

by Ben Johnson, The White House Watch

Barack Obama is currently on a “listening tour” of the Midwest to bolster his uphill re-election campaign. When two average Americans dared to ask him about his administration’s harsh rhetoric against its opponents, Obama got testy before repeatedly putting his hands on a woman to try to stifle her.

At a Monday town hall meeting in Decorah, Iowa, Obama met two of the millions of Americans who disapprove of his performance as president. Tea Party activist Ryan Rhodes and an unnamed woman asked why Joe Biden was calling conservatives terrorists. The exchange clearly got the best of Obama:

Obama is visibly tense throughout the exchange. Let’s look at that video again, more closely this time. Notice how Obama listens until the woman starts to speak — and then he decides to reach out and touch someone:

Obama showed his thuggish tendencies in this video. The One is the most criticism-averse president in history; the Affirmative Action baby has gotten steadily promoted beyond his competence between orgies of adulation that he is “brilliant” and “articulate.” When anyone raises even the faintest criticism of his efforts, he gets bent out of shape. In this discussion, he could not take the mild questioning anymore and attempted to physically break this conservative woman’s line of thought, physically intimidate her, or at a minimum decided this little lady needed to be steadied because of her little feminine case of the vapors.

Where is the outrage? Where is the feminist movement? Remember the conniption they threw when Rick Lazio allegedly invaded the “personal space” of Hillary Clinton during their 2000 Senate debate?

Obama ended the trio’s encounter with his typical condescension. “It doesn’t sound like you’re interested in listening,” he said. But Obama is the one on a “listening tour.” So, shut up, listen, and get your hands off of us.

This incident invites us to think about a possible scenario in the 2012 presidential race. Imagine for a moment if an unapologetic conservative woman were on the debate stage with him, either at separate podiums or at a town hall-style debate with no barriers between them. Imagine she had the guts to call Obama out for his record of failure and his terrorist pals. If Obama is able to keep his hands off her, he will boil over until he loses his cool in some other way. The flustered president will go down in flames — and the Left’s toughest champion will be beaten by a girl.

Update: This story was picked up by DailyKos by a diarist named qannabbos. Curiously, today we have seen a whole group of new people login, all posting a variation of the same comment: “While I do not support Obama, he did not grab her. We’re better than this! We Tea Party conservatives shouldn’t lie, like racist scum….” The new members then all like each other’s comments. The hate posters on DailyKos lack the subtlety to make their deception stick and lack the civility to lecture anyone about anything.

  1. The audio, while better than what Rush and Sean played on the radio, is not clear enough. Please post a transcript.

    Oh, for Pete's sake – do we all have to become as absurd as the left-leaners? He DID NOT grab her! He lied when he said that Joe Biden did not call the Tea Party 'terrorists', but he DID NOT GRAB the lady. Geeezzz!

  3. I don't like Obama, but he clearly didn't "lose it". Come On!

  4. In my opinion, this administration is no different than the decades of when the criminal, Ferdinand Marcos ruled the Philippines. Voter fraud, lying, intimidation, assassinations of opponents (this administration is capable of anything), amassing huge fortunes, securing jobs and contracts to friends and family. Please tell me if there is ANY DIFFERENCE!

  5. Come on Ben, I think you are the one that's "loosing it". I hate obama but he did nothing wrong, he put his hand on her arm and she clearly didn't even react to it. How can you defeat someone by lowering your self to their level? This is the kind of reporting that makes Conservatives look bad and this is something I would expect out of the MSM. Who's side are you on Ben Johnson?

    • WHILE OBAMA DID NOT “GRAB” HER..HIS TOUCHING HER IS THE WAY A PARENT WOULD TO “SHUSH” A CHILD WHOM THEY WANTED TO JUST SHUT UP AND “NOT INTERUPT THE ADULTS” IT IS DISMISSIVE AT THE LEAST AND INVASIVE AT MOST FOR HIM TO TOUCH HER PERIOD. HE IS A PETULENT LITTLE BOY ..JUST WISH HE WOULD TAKE HIS BALL AND GO HOME!!!

      • Although you kept it on caps locks so we know you’re serious, I’d have to agree with web. I hate Obama just as much as everyone else that comes to this site but he clearly did nothing out of line here. This headline is completely misleading.

          The hell he didnt do something wrong….The black bastard put his hands on her…..

    • Obummer is losing it. He evaded the question. "Bite Me" Biden did call Tea Partiers terrorist. Then he says "considering what is said about me", like it's all bout him and his Liberal ego. How immature for someone who is supposed to be a "leader".

  6. It's amazing to me when I read all the comments people have posted here and to see how different we conservatives all think from progressive/ liberal thought. I see in all your comments, common sense, truth and honesty. The progressive/ liberals on the other hand would lie and continue to say and insist he grabed the woman to shut her up even AFTER seeing the video, if the roles were reversed.

  7. These T party people are right on the money, asking questions that the community organiser in chief can not answer, so the thug tries to control by being all touchy feely when that doesnt work he moves on. Keep asking for the truth.because the big O cant handle the truth, TYPICAL LIBERAL SCUM BAG! ——–IMPEACH.

  8. Ahhh…. Rob, you are showing your TRUE COLORS! Were you paid handsomely to come on this site and pretend to be conservative? I hope you were. Was it by chance 30 pieces of silver?

  9. Sure you are!! Walk, quack… DUCK?

  10. Look at your caption for this ! I very much do Not like Mr.o, but you said that he grabbed a Tea Party woman to shut her up. You, my friend, make yourself look very bad by over sensationalizing and making something of nothing. He touched her gently, that's not a "grab to shut her up". If people want a black man for President, let's put Col Allen West in there. There's a set of kuhunas !!!
    Ya'll are doing a good job, I like your work until I see something like this.
    Let's have a little better self control and honesty in the stories put out there, please don't become like keith olberman, puke.

  11. You need to watch the video again and watch the 'touch'!!! Do you see the tightening of the fingers? The subtle squeeze? What you see is him trying to shut her up with that squeeze. Like a mother who is trying to shut her child up without using the force of a spanking. He was trying to intimidate her by squeezing her arm to shut her up.

  12. WHAT, YOU MEAN THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A "LEFT-WING" RADICAL TERRORIST?

  13. Okay now for the facts………"the grab" was a condesending measure…….he tried to make her look weak and stupid. He has NO business touching anyone for any reason!!

  14. gil beach says:

    hey he is the messiah, by touch ing the woman, he was just blessing her?

  15. GAIL FORD says:

    why would anyone find this offensive? We the true Legal Americans have not had any voice since Obama got into OUR white house. Just look at the mess that he has not been able or willing to fix. Even though he said he could. All Obama knows how to do is tell people what he THINKS they want to hear and have the per-say power to shut us up. We the Americans have let him get away with this and if we don't do something about it in 2012 then he will get another 4 years to totally destroy the USA. Just watch since our credit rating went down then all the international country will be able to come in and buy up all the roads and put tolls on them so we(Americans) will pay to ride on our built roads. The international people will buy all of the USA and then just watch what happens to us then. If we don't get someone in OUR white house in 2012 that we know that will stand up for us then I feel so sorry for our great USA. It will be no more. Maybe they will have the power to change it to something of their liking. Like the International United States. Dog Gone it people. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE.

  16. DonotlikeyouObama says:

    Very misleading title for article. Meant to stir anger and that's wrong. Let's not lower our standards to their's.

  17. It was a move to intimidate although a weak and pathetic one.

    • I agree. The last gesture that I saw on the video was his hand up against her shoulder as if to push her back although he didn't push. It still sent the message "back off lady!"

  18. ultrarder07 says:

    he has no reason to lay hands on anyone, especially a lady. If you or I did such we would be immeiately arrested for assault. What makes him immune to the laws of the land?? he should be arrested and charged with assault, but, I know that this will never happen !!!! WHY NOT????? OK liberals and dumecraps, let's hear the reasons why not ! ! !

    • Because the anointed one has made it impossible for blacks and muslimes to be tried for any crimes that they obviously (even on film) commit. Where oh where is John Wilkes Booth when you need him!!!!!

    • Calm down already… it was a mere touch. Kinda like a "connection"…although he wasn't really listening to them. :/

  19. DJ Hatfield says:

    He should not have gotten touchy feely at all. Whether it was s subtle "now there" or a sharp squeeze, there is no difference. He should have answered the question instead of avoiding it. Who is the real boss in the White House? Clearly Obama has no control and is a puppet trying to become master in a mad house with unrealistic views of "the way" Americans should live. He has no right!

  20. If the woman or man had done the same thing to the President what would have happened? They would have probably been arrested and jailed for touching the Anointed One! Unwanted touching like this is a clear gesture of narcissistic behavior in men and women. It is a dominance issue that they use to intimidate other people. Was it done in malice, probably not but it was done on purpose to shut her up! This man has read several books put out by Eric Hoffer; "Thoughts on the nature of mass movements": The True Believer. He follows this book to the letter!

  21. OK. He touched her. He also touched more people as he was talking then I cared to count. SO, gonna have to say there isn't too much wrong with this video. Politicians AT a MEET AND GREET are supposed to shake hands, touch and say hello. YES! I loved that they put him on the spot and he couldn't do anything more then lie and twist words, BUT, I don't see anything wrong with WHAT HE DID!… NOW, I do see something AMAZINGLY WRONG with one thing he said.

    • Ever notice the KEY words someone says JUST BEFORE THEY ARE GOING TO LIE TO YOU??? It sounds just like this- "The truth of the matter is…" AND :To be HOnest with you…" ANY format means "I am aboput to LIE to you." Watch the video. Here what Obama says just before he answers the question.

  22. You be real, if your didn't vote for him and his lies to change this country you voted for the man that was for the status quo. I voted for the lier because I didn't know that what he was telling me he would do were all lies.

  23. So do you have pigs in your belly? Wee are not doing it right. Waiting for Congress to impeach him just ain't gonna happen. We need a civilian to get this action started, where is Trump when you need him? Trump.. Impeach him now. Get this ball rolling.

  24. Good post Dennis, my biggest gripe about Floyd is the same thing. He goes for sensationalism over content too often. Cool it Floyd, read your articles before you publish them, weed out these authors that push the story in their direction. Don't need 'em, don't like 'em, don't want "em.

  25. He is intimadating the woman. He should keep his hands to himself. There is a law against putting your hands on anyone. No one is allowed to touch him.

  26. FIRST OF ALL, I DON'T LIKE WHAT THE PRES. IS DOING IN OUR COUNTRY…..BUT IN THE VIDEO HE TOUCHED THE WOMEN ON HER ARMS…NOT GRABBING HER! IF EVERYONE WOULD QUIT EXAGGERATING THINGS AND JUST TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT ANYTHING OR EVERYTHING MAYBE THIS COUNTRY WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE AND MAKE OUR LIVES A LITTLE EASIER! WE ARE LIED TO EVERY DAY BY THE GOV., SO WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO BE HONEST IN OUR LIVES. I CAN SEE IF HE MANHANDLED THE WOMEN THEN YOU CAN SAY HE GRABBED HER. GRAB MEANS TO ALOT OF PEOPLE, "IN A FORCEFUL MANNER"! SO, GET THINGS RIGHT THE FIRST TIME PEOPLE!

    • I am a white woman, Tea-Party activist for the past 3 years, and I didn't see him do anything but touch her upper arm. I think there are much greater issues than this…even that while talking to people, he doesn't give them his full attention, and keep shaking hands and moving along. He's really about campaigning, no mater that the country is collaspsing around him. BUT… I agree this whole thing is being exaggerated. Let's focus on getting a really strong candidate to boot his ass out!

  27. You may want to rethink your header over one of the videos,''Obama repeatedly touches WHITE woman''—what difference does her color make??

    • Concerned Montanan says:

      good point! We read stories about the old south where Negroes were killed for talking to, much less touching white girls. That should no longer be a consideration. What is much more interesting in this video (I actually saw this on TV/Fox) is listening to Obama argue. No teleprompter!! Obviously he is the one who is "not listening."
      BTW, we were once allowed to say "Negro," which is simply the Spanish word for black.
      also, I would not call Obama's gestures "grabbing" either.

    • Nowhere does the above article say, "header over the videos" say "Obama repeatedly touches WHITE woman" you lying progressive turd, So typical of the Left. Lie, lie, lie.

    • I agree that is a real stupid or as the left will say a racist remark. If some white guy in the crowd touched Micheal ,first of all she would have slapped him for thinking about touching her highness ,but the SS agents would have him cuffed and on his way to jail for iterrigation.And as much as she hates whites she would told the SS to charge with him assualt and attemped rape and what ever else they can get on "Whitey"

  28. He is very corrupted if laid hands on me i would punch him.

  29. Health care and education are BOTH NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY of the Government. Gun ownership is the responsibility of the citizens. If Clinton does not want guns in the hands of the citizens, have her disarm all of her secret service security agents first, then, New York law enforcement officers, then, the military, then, after all of those have been disarmed, ask the citizens what they think. Hillary Clinton, either put up or shut up.

  30. I don't see that he grabbed her, but should not touch her at all.

  31. Can't see that he "lost it" but he certainly should have felt uneasy … this is the beginning of the "hot seat" … he may as well get used to it. What I noticed was the fence of bails of hay separating him from 'the people" … that is such an obvious truth … there is a WALL between Obama and the people … only it is much higher than two bails of hay. I think he needed to return to the Husein Hurst and get back to Washington.

  32. I’d someone had touched Barry in the same way the SS would be on them in a heartbeat!

  33. Anonymous says:

    Damn bastard should have kept his damn hands to himself!

  34. He was touching the lady in an effort to appease her. It was very clear that he felt uncomfortable with anyone opposing him in anyway! I commend those people who pointed out to him that the Tea Party Patriots were indeed called TERRORISTS by him and his administration. No amount of his lying to cover it up will ever do. What I found odd were those shaking his hand …. strange.

  35. Really! I truly despise Obama but he DID NOT SHAKE the shoulders of that women in any aggressive way. It is was obvious that he was being genuine and “reaching out” to this lady as an attempt like all politicians to be understanding and connecting with the commoners, I mean constituents. Though he was truly sidetracking the point she and the other gentleman was trying to make about Biden’s thoughtless comment on the Tea Party movement he was just trying to be friendly. Obviously, the Tea Party is gaining momentum and power. The Tea Party members are just hard working normal everyday Americans. They cry and hold their heads up proudly during the National Anthem. They go over to military folks in uniform shake their hands, kiss them and hug them for their honorable commitment to serve and protect our rights and the United States. They consider the Constitution as one of the most cherish and beloved documents of human history and rank it only second to the Holy Bible. This is America; this is the foundation of our country. Yes, America is open to diversity and to change but not to sacrifice every American’s life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Our federal government no longer supports nor protects our freedoms and rights (free healthcare is not a right, people) therefore in 2012 the people will choose to throw off the chains of tyranny and reclaim our liberty. Obviously, progressives are scared and attacking the Tea Party with vengeance in order to maintain their grip and enslavement on the American people like Rep. Walters from California for saying that “…the Tea Party can go to hades” but she did not use “hades”. Change is coming and the American people will win.

  36. sean murry says:

    Just like that SOB trying prevent someone using thier first amendment right.

  37. Ruth Bacon says:

    He did not grab her; he simply touched her, as someone pointed out, he is often seen to do in a crowd.
    The appearance that he "lost it," from his apparent stuttering and inability to answer her questions and give her anything worth listening to is typical of his speech any time he is without his teleprompter. We will never get him to listen to the common people – he is much too brainwashed and set in his Marxist ideology, and too arrogant to consider that those people may be right and he may be wrong.
