The Five hosts took on the White House's harsh rhetoric against Republicans who are trying to defund ObamaCare.

Obama to 'Extremist' Republicans: Pass a Budget, Don't Shut Down Gov't

President Obama and Press Secretary Jay Carney have used words like "extortion," "blackmail," and "extremist" to describe House Republicans. But the most extreme statement was made by White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer, who invoked suicide bombers in his criticism of Tea Party Republicans.
