Action Alert: Tell Obama
to 'Stop Misdirecting America'

"Their anger is misdirected," President Obama told Rolling Stone on Sept. 28 when speaking about Dick Armey, FreedomWorks and the Tea Party movement.

FreedomWorks responded by saying Obama is the one leading the country in the wrong direction.

"He's misdirecting our economy toward joblessness and poverty. He's misdirecting our people toward servitude and tyranny. He's misdirecting our nation toward weakness and mediocrity," Matt Kibbe, president and CEO of FreedomWorks, said in a recent e-mail blast.

Kibbe pointed to five areas of Obama's misdirection:
  • Generation-robbing deficits and debt.
  • Crippling new cap-and-trade taxes on energy, hikes in the personal tax income, and a host of other redistributionist tax schemes.
  • Government takeovers of the health care system.
  • Bailouts of irresponsible and rightfully failing banks, businesses and labor unions.
  • Foolish economic theories that have deepened the recession and sent unemployment rates skyrocketing.
FreedomWorks has taken one more step in response to Obama's comment by launching an online petition aimed at telling Obama to "Stop Misdirecting America." Sign your name, and add a comment if you'd like.
