Carrying Water for Obama, Hilda Solis Picks a Fight with the Tea Party

By: Kevin Derby | Posted: October 31, 2011 3:55 AM
With the team behind President Barack Obama targeting the Sunshine State in their bid for a second term in 2012, the White House sent U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis to speak to the Florida Democratic Convention on Saturday.

A day after Vice President Joe Biden told the convention at Walt Disney World that Obama needed to carry Florida to win in 2012, Solis attempted to rally Democrats for the elections and urged them to push for the Obama jobs plan which, with Republicans controlling the U.S. House, has no chance of passing Congress.

Speaking at a luncheon event on Saturday, Solis carried water for Obama, bashing Republicans and praising the administration’s economic policies.

Solis offered harsh words about conservatives. Looking at 2012, Solis slammed the tea party movement, calling them “teabaggers” and promising the Obama administration will take them on.

Combating the noise of a crowd often more concerned with holding their own conversations and eating their lunches than listening to her speech, Solis attempted to defend the Obama economic policies, praising the federal stimulus that the White House backed and the president’s job plan.

Solis claimed that the Obama job plan was backed by 65 percent of the American people and would “put 2 million people, especially construction workers, back to work.”

Besides attempting to sell the Obama jobs plan, Solis took aim at the Republicans. She attacked Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s labor policies, arguing that he is looking to take away collective bargaining and other rights from public-sector employees.

Solis accused Republicans in Florida and other states, including Ohio and Wisconsin, of “picking on” teachers, police officers and other government workers.

Blaming globalization and market changes for the decline of organized labor in the private sector, Solis conceded that government workers retained strong unions. “We’ve seen the movement in the labor house diminish in the private sector,” said Solis.

Solis urged the crowd to back Obama and his jobs plan.“You need to understand that this president is fighting for you,” she insisted.

When Obama took the oath of office in January 2009, the national unemployment rate stood at 7.6 percent. In September 2011, the national unemployment rate was 9.1 percent.

“Solis offered harsh words about conservatives. Looking at 2012, Solis slammed the tea party movement, calling them “teabaggers” and promising the Obama administration will take them on.” I thought the Manchurian Candidate’s team had already done that with juvenile attempts at slander like using the word “teabaggers”, racistly dropping charges against the black panthers, and labeling patriots as potential terrorists,

“Solis attempted to defend the Obama economic policies, praising the federal stimulus that the White House backed and the president’s job plan. What’s the stupid cow going to do, admit it was a failure when they’re trying to slide another one through?

The stupid, greedy and evil are always opposed to having their self-serving ways threatened by reason and reform.

Everyone connected with Barry is a communist. It will be time to clean out this vermin from the WH. It will take a long time to fumigate our WH after we thow this scum in the street. BTW..This traitor will be living off of us fopr the rest of his miserable life while his policies keep you working because he has stolen your savings. Wake up! The only reason that this scum was put in the WH is the treasonous behavior of the lamestream media. (aka democrat propaganda machine)

Just more division in this country. Class warfare between the people of this country sponsored by the progressive movement. There only weapon is to accuse the right of the things they do!
The progressives/liberals are a bunch who will bring on disgusting filth to put those on the right down. Why this is just how they trated slaves back in the 1700/1800"s. But as a conservative, we need not stand by and take this any longer. We follow the examples set by MLK , no violence, just purpose.

Solis is from El Monte, CA, an illegal alien gamg haven since the early 1960's. Especially the area known as 5 points. Yep just like in the gangs of New York. You couldn't even go there, as a kid, w/o getting your bike stolen. That city is an illegal alien garbage refuse center.
12:45AM NOV 2ND 2011
Isn't it interesting? When Americans, wanted to go to Town Hall Meetings, to the Town Halls that their taxes paid for, and meet with their "representatives", Nancy Pelosi called them NAZI'S. The left saw nothing at all wrong with this comment of hers. Instead of having to step down in shame, for denigrating her fellow citizens, she is still in power, commiting every impropriety imaginable. With these kinds of leaders, we don't need to worry about other "enemies."
12:28AM NOV 2ND 2011
The reason Solis is talking about construction jobs is because she knows that millions of illegal aliens are illegally doing those jobs. No, she doesn't know it, I'm sorry I take that back , I know it. She as "labor Secretary, and a democ-RAT, would never know such a thing.
12:23AM NOV 2ND 2011
Solis said, "you need to understand that this President is fighting for illegal aliens. NO, I TAKE THAT BACK, I SAID THAT. Solis would never think or say such a thing. hehehehehehehehehe........ i KNOW I'M BEING DEVIOUS, BUT WHY SHOULD POLITICIANS, LIKE SOLIS,ETC. HAVE ALL THE FUN LYING?
11:47PM NOV 1ST 2011
Solis's party is LA RAZA. Period. She is not concerned for American citizens of all kinds, but she, as a typical democrat, is concerned about foregin nationals in this nation without permission(illegally) Her bigotry and prejudice towards non-hispanics has been evident ever she gained political power. She said, that eveyone that comes to the U.S. legally or illegally is a citizen. Huh? How in the world did we get these kind of people in power over us?

One knew Hilda before she was picked by Bama for Hispanic votes. She was a flack in Ca. who was not regarded as a genius on eco. issues. So here she is , using the liberal Dem playbook , to smear fellow citizens in Fla. , Wis. Ohio other must states for Bama to win. Note that the lie is a smear ala Cain; Pubs do not hate any public union worker. Pubs do not believe that public UNION LEADERS ALA SEIU-UAW-ACORN are good for the citizens in their love for European socialist baloney and violence ala OWS as a bribery ploy to scare voters into dissing capitalism , the system btw which feeds them all in their nice offices! Odd too that Hilda and liberal Dems love to use perverted sex terms to smear opponents. But, will never investigate their own sex offenders ala the Kennedys, Clinton, Edwards, Barney and company!! What hypocrites.

1st.....LMFAO!!! Ok.....Now, I am not surprised to hear comments like this anymore. Not by anyone that has anything to do with NObama the Dictator. What I am getting sick of is all the lies told, all the lies flying so freely from the Dems side. The lies that are being fed to our younger generation should be a CRIME! I have a daughter in college & I can not believe some of the crap she is told.....and promised. If she votes the right way! THERE IT IS! If she and her class mates vote the right way....they wont have to worry about school loans, there will be job upon job for them to choose from, the pay will be outstanding.
As for what NObama's jobs bill will do for me.....NOTHING! Nothing but cost ME MORE! This admin. is NOT here for WE THE PEOPLE....it is there with the intent of driving our country into the ground. It is there to divide the people....not bring together. And thanks to the Dems.....its working. IM A MEMBER OF THE TEA PARTY & PROUD TO BE! MY COUNTRY WILL BE STRONG AGAIN! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!

Ewww, what a scumbag. When she talks about teabagging, does she use the word gay or does she use the fa**ot word? I know, the press will give her a pass. Actually, she should call Republican's "crackers".

Shame on you, Hilda Solis, for those low class comments. I like to see you get out in the public and run your mouth. Your own words reveal exactly who you are. Voters will remember that O'Bama pulls your strings, and
his folks probably wrote your speech.

When the Spanish stole indian lands which are now the western US states, the southwest land was not "Mexico" it was Nueva Espana - New Spain, part of Spain - a nation in Europe.

The Spanish perpetuated a genocide on the tribes of California during their reign of terror, the "missions" built by the Spanish were little more than concentration camps.

Aside from the southern coast of California, and a string of forts that ran along a line where the existing US/Mex border is today, none of the rest of what is now the US Southwest was ever conquered, settled by, built upon, or developed by Spain, because the native Indian tribes kept the Spainsh, and later Mexicans out of Indian lands.

The land sold to the US in the Treaty of Guadelupe Hidalgo and Gadsden Purchase was never part of the United Mexican States after Mexico became a sovereign nation in 1822.
It was Indian Territory after Spain stole it, and it was Indian Territory after Mexico stole it.

Here is a map of the United Mexican States in 1822 to 1847, when Mexico became a nation:
Notice that the Mexican States did not extend above where the US border is now.

Mexico did not exist until 1822, and there were no "Mexican" tribes living this side of where the existing US/Mex border is today.

Mexicans have no claim to any inch of US land.
Aztlan is a lie.
MEChA lied to you.

11:56PM NOV 1ST 2011
Ha,hhahahaha......that's funny. Here's the real scoop chump. White Americans are the Americans that built this nation from the ground up, Chump. Indian tribes killed each other as well as fighting the "white man", unsuccessfully. That happens in war, doesn't it, chump? Now to continue, the roads you drive on, the skyscrapers, the factories, the bridges, the power lines, airports, trains, planes, in fact, everything you see, was created by "white people", as you say, or to be more exact European-Americans. Somebodys got to straighten meatheads like you out and tell them the truth. P.S. you aren't an Indian, because all of the Indian people I've met never whine like a little wimpy crybaby--like you. You are not doubt the typical La Raza buffoon. Hint: Mexico is South of you, if you live in the U.S.of A.

The point isn't who migrated here. The point is who created this whole nation before Johnny come lately La Raza clown even came here from Narco State. Everything was already built up and ready for him/her. Wasn't it? That's why I reiterate, Mexico is South of here----->South. P.S. Solis is a fifth columnist for Mexico, IN MY OPINION.

A couple of months ago I began referring to OhBummer as a pathological flea, inasmuch as the majority of Americans see him as a bloodsucking fraud and a dishonest propagandist.

About a week ago I bumped into a blog comment referring to the Occupy Wall Street gang as "the flea party" and I warned the author that I would STEAL his ingenius reference and use it wherever it could inflict the most damage on the enemies of the American taxpayers.

More recently still, my favorite columnist, Ann Coulter [she a Christian and myself an atheist], published a column entitled "WINGLESS, BLOODSUCKING AND PARASITIC: MEET THE FLEA PARTY!" at her anncoulterdotorg website.

Clearly, things have gotten out of hand. This prairie fire of flea-mongers are raging out of control, wherever you turn. ~:<)

The Fleabaggers in OhBummer's Flea Party [Occupy Wall Street and its metasticized little cancers in other cities] are the ideological blackshirts, brownshirts, redshirts and no-shirt thugs tasked and directed in their riots by OhBummer allies Michael Moore, David Astroturf Axelrod, and Van Jones, by MoveOn.org, the SEIU, the Huffington Post, and OhBummer's former employer, ACORN --- and, naturally --- by Barak Hussein Hushpuppy Hoover OhBummer, himself --- with a cameo appearance by dopehead rugmuncher Roseanne Barr-The-Beheader.

This so-called "spontaneous, leaderless civil unrest" is a White House operation, conceived in the bowels of Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer's fetid little mind --- while he sat ruminating in the bowels of the White House --- and enacted by OhBummer's chosen proxies, surrogates, cronies, and confederates.

OhBummer and the OhBummer Wrecking Crew have been promoting envy [mental illness] and trying to shift blame to "Greedy Wall Street" and away from themselves --- they who are what novelist Ayn Rand called "greedy for the unearned."

Yes. These are the lying, arrogant, GREEDY-FOR-THE-UNEARNED, bloodsxcking, tax-eating Democrat hoods, thugs, and gangsters. I advocate and I seek their destruction.

There are still approximately 120 million privately-employed nongovernment taxpayers in America today, and while this pathological flea, Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer, and his minions, are promoting street riots, I advocate that all 120 million of these privately-employed taxpayers stage a riot on the bridge of OhBummer's nose. That skunk wants race riots and class-warfare riots --- and he should get a riot that will make history.

$ $ $ $ $

Meanwhile, back at the hacienda.... In 2008, the top 1% of earners paid more than 38% of all Federal income taxes. Check this out at ntudotorg, "who pays income taxes."

And so to the President of the United States of America and to the so-called "99-percenters" in OhBummer's street-gang Fleabaggers who claim victimhood --- go blow smoke up your own whizbangs.

The Democrats have this "enemies list" --- denominated in epithets aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside. You can be a “Racist!” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “Teabagger!” --- a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Wacko!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” and you can be an “Extremist!” You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be “Mentally Ill” and you can be “Deranged!” and you can be a “Warmonger!” and you can be "Unenlightened!" and you can be a “FatCat!” and you can be a “Nazi!” and you can be a “Fascist!” --- although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Nazi!” or “Fascist!” than the usual Democrat propagandist --- either official, or self-appointed.

Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Democrats’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things - and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited scXm --- by The Friends of All Mankind --- by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, pill-popping, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian thugs --- by the Democrat party, in other words. No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.

What this country needs is a truly LIBERAL president and congress and judiciary!

And I forgive the reader for suspecting that this must be some kind of bad joke!

But the Democrats believe in "statism" --- not "liberalism."

Strip them naked of their fake "liberal" label and expose their ugliness for all the world to see.

They benefit from the imprecise American political terminology ---- we say "the government" here in the USA ---- rather than "the state." And that's a dangerous problem. Famous brands of statism in recent centuries have been Nazism, socialism, fascism, communism, and welfare statism ---- this last is sort of a mix of fascism and socialism.

Liberalism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy of small, cheap government ---- it is a constabulary ---- and the job of a liberal government is to enforce human rights within its own jurisdiction. I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.

The first article of private property is "the self" and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights. These rights ---- The Rights of Man ---- are the gift of nature or of nature's god ---- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.

Show me a Democrat who subscribes to all of the above, without qualifications or weasel words. The words "liberal" and "liberalism" were hijacked by the Democrats and socialists and fascists long ago ---- and it was the mistake of conservatives and libertarians to let them get away with it.

It is long past time that liberalism be reclaimed, defined, and explained by its rightful owners ---- by the champions of freedom, i.e.: not by Democrats.

Well, how about "progressivism?" Whuzzat?! “Cancer” is “progressive,” too. Isn't “progressivism” just another statist cancer? It chews you up, piece by piece, in the name of Da Peepul? Eat Da Rich? Moral cannibalism, anyone?

Friends of freedom! Friends of peace-through-strength! And friends of prosperity! Declare yourselves to be "liberals," then ---- and kick over the bloody coffee tables --- and overthrow and trounce the Democrats in 2012!

OhBummer is a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers. Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled. He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system --- the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers --- and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House --- and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers.

And --- now widely seen for what he is --- the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media. They pump out his propaganda for him --- and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” --- they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables.

He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious --- a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton. He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk.

He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug.

He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden --- indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks.

He declares himself the post-racial leader --- “Let me be clear!” he intones --- and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk.

He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda --- and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through. Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer --- “The Mistake of ‘08” --- the illegal alien squatter in the White House until his “papers” have been lab-tested for age and chemicals, etc --- and America’s first and last Arab president --- King of The Republic of Lies. Now count your fingers.

As a Tea Partier from the get go, I've had enough of these sexist attacks from the left. This stream of commentary has empowered many Tea Partiers to respond in a way that sets a new tone to the movement; don't S t on us anymore, Libtard Liars! We will give as good as we have been getting.
BTW, Google up "is obama a homosexual" and inform yourself on the data that wasn't vetted by the press when this abomination first presented himself as a Presidential candidate. I find it very 'rich' that this particular term in being thrown around to describe patriots when it really might apply to The One. No wonder Michelle looks soooo nasty all the time.

Unceasing and unmitigated total arrogance and contempt from this regime. Class warfare, raid and deplete the national wealth, emasculate the military, blind our intelligence services, keep the governmental boot across the throat of job creation, indoctrinate our children with deviant and diseased sexual practices without our knowledge or consent and do it all without so much as submitting the documents we need to get a drivers license.

My email to Secretary Solis...............................Thank you Ms. Secretary for your part in solidifying our efforts to remove the worse Cabinet in history from the White House. As a Tea Party Patriot from California, I take no offense that you call me a "teabagger". I rose above the effects of name calling as a young adult. What I take offense to is a Secretary of Labor publicly using a derogatory sexually explicit term to describe her fellow Americans.
You bring shame and disrespect to yourself, and too the Department of Labor. I ask for no apology as it would be disingenuous at best and would ring hollow on the ears of Patriots. I only ask that you remain in office and continue the rhetoric, as it will only strengthen our resolve to make you a one term Secretary and we gladly accept support from all political persuasions.

Thank you,

Apparently the democrats don't like homosexuals, since "teabagging" susposedly refers to something to do with those folks, I'm not sure what, though. Yet, the democrats continue to employ that word as a disparaging remark towards those who believe that the nation should live within its economic means. So, they don't like homosexuals or fiscal responsibility. Go figure.
As for the president's new stimulus request, allow me to point out a few things about that:
1. The first stimulus plan was supposed to achieve the stated goal of this new request, but, of course, it didn't. In fact, a few weeks ago the president callously joked that those "shovel ready" jobs weren't quite as ready as he thought they were. That being the case, why should anyone believe that the outcome from this stimulus package would be any different than it was with the first one?
2. The nation might have money for infrastructure if this administration had not loaned it to "green" compnies, such as Solandra, that have now gone belly up. $500 million down the drain on that one. And this stimulus request is for what--around $470 million?
3. The vast majority of working people in this country are not union members, yet every mention of this money by democrats is about benefits unionized people will recieve from it. Apparently, if you work outside a union, in this adminstration, you don't count. In fact, at this moment democrats are attempting to thwart the building of a non-union Boing plant, a facility representing hundreds if not thousands of new jobs, in South Carolina. Instead of drilling for oil off our shores, this administration gives money to Brazil so they can do it, instead. So much for their sympathies towards the working man.
3. Finally, what happens to these jobs when they money runs out? They disappear, that's what. If you were a lucky enough union member to get one of these jobs, you would shortly be jobless again. In fact, this plan, along with the new college loan debt forgiveness plan, are nothing more than instruments this president is using to buy presidential election votes with. Plain, pure, simple. I only wish someone would ask Mr. Obama or Jay Carney this simple question: "When the money runs out, what happens to these jobs then?"
4:05PM NOV 1ST 2011
Bob, you are kidding right? You really know what "teabaggers" is slang for. Oh well, I will take the bait. The term "teabaggers" refers to a homosexual sex act which involves member # 1 putting member # 2's testicles (balls) into # 1's mouth.

And Obama's stimulus that he is currently requesting is 470 BILLION, not million.

Isn't it time for the Latinos to assimilate into our society instead of attempting USA citizens to move towards communism? Why did these people immigate to our country if they didn't like the way we do things here? This nation is a patriarchal society, which is counter productive to those of Latino culture. It is time to address these issues in a public forum.
2:16PM NOV 2ND 2011
By the way Diane, Latino culture is far more Patriarchal then our culture. I don't think you will find a feminist movement in Mexico.
