Oh snap!

The Prez targets the teabaggers:

At his 100th-day town hall meeting in St. Louis, President Obama took direct aim at the “tea party” demonstrations that cropped up over the last month – and took a veiled shot at Fox "News," the network closely associated with the protests.

Asked about fiscal discipline and entitlements reform, Obama seemed to be repressing a smile as he jabbed critics of his spending plans.

"Those of you who are watching certain news channels on which I'm not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around, Obama said, “let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security.”

“But,” Obama continued, “let's not play games and pretend that the reason [for the deficit] is because of the Recovery Act."
