Of course he does. Anyone who questions his authority is an enemy.<quoted text>For one , the Obama Administration does not perceive the Tea Party as "enemy" . President Obama has said on more than one occasion that as President he is responsible for and cares for all Americans regardless of who they voted for(unlike Romney who thought that he didn't have to give a rat's ass for any American who would 'never vote for him anyway.)That's a big reason why Mitt 'no integrity' Romney lost in 2012. Second, the I.R.S. targeted the Tea Party groups who were the most likely suspects to violate U S tax laws since they're on record as believing that the income tax is illegal.
If Obama is about anything, he's about control and a one-party system.
Oh, and bigger government is better government. That's a control mentality. Especially after destroying the enemy...opposition.
