    • President Obama came face-to-face with the Tea Party last night in Iowa, clashing with a member during and after a town hall last night.

    • Ryan Rhodes, a group leader in the Hawkeye State, stood up and shouted a question during a town hall, asking the president how he can call for more civility when "your vice president is calling people like me, a Tea Party member, a 'terrorist.'"

    • Obama, who had not called on the man, said the town hall wouldn't work "if you just stand up when I asked everybody to raise their hand. ... I didn't see you. I wasn't avoiding you. ... Please."

    • After calling another person, Obama circled back to address Rhodes' question: "First of all, in fairness to this gentleman who raised a question, I absolutely agree that everybody needs to try to tone down the rhetoric.

    • "Now, in fairness, since I've been called a socialist who wasn't born in this country, who is destroying America and taking away its freedoms because I passed a health care bill, I'm all for lowering the rhetoric."

    • After the event, Obama came up to speak with Rhodes.

    • It's hard to quote their conversation exactly because of the music, but Rhodes again raised "the terrorist" comment and Obama defended his vice president, Joe Biden.

    • Biden has denied calling the Tea Party terrorists. A House Democrat used the term during a group meeting with Biden over the debt ceiling debate, but the vice president denied news reports that he echoed the comment.


    • US President Barack Obama went head-to-head with a prominent conservative Tea Party activist, in a microcosm of a political clash that will play out in the 2012 election.

    • Ryan Rhodes, a leader of the group in Iowa, took on Obama during an open-air town hall meeting, which marked a moment of new intensity in the president's campaign for a second term.

    • Rhodes shouted out that the president's calls for more civility in politics had little chance of coming to pass after "your vice president is calling people like me, a Tea Party member, a 'terrorist.'"
