Annihilating Democracy with the Tea Party - NJMaverick - 07-29-2011 10:20 AM
Quote:Democracy depends on compromise and the American government depends on all branches working together. The Tea Party movement shuns both, preferring instead to drive the state into bankruptcy. On principle.

An honest assessment of the three-ring circus we have become to the world. The teapubs would be wise to listen and clean up their act.

Even O'Reilly thinks they're nuts..........
O’Reilly Slams Tea Party’s ‘Hateful Rhetoric,’ Warns GOP ‘Craziness’ Is Just Helping Obama
Quote:O’REILLY: The only thing that can save Barack Obama at this point is craziness on the right…It’s not only going to hurt the Republican party, which has already been hurt, but it’s going to save President Obama who they hate…The irony is, the people who dislike President Obama the most…are helping him the most. You’ve got to stop this hateful rhetoric. Some of the rhetoric is so hateful…it’d spin your head around. You have to say, listen, we’re at a point in the history when we have to save the country…But I just hope they’ll all just say let’s do what’s good for the country.

Boehner Gives Up: Adds Balanced Budget Amendment
<..> At the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol calls the move a “pointless and embarrassing gimmick to try to secure a last-gasp victory on the House floor.”
When the old guard pubs become quotable it tells the story of how far down the teabaggers have taken the GOP.

The Tea Partiers are just racists.
Most of those who've been on this forum awhile have known that, but others wanted to ignore the reality behind the Tea Party agenda.
The old-time GOPers who wanted Tea Party support to win elections had the illusion that they could control the loonies. But the GOPers underestimated the extent to which many Tea Party ideologues hate all kinds of "diversity" in the U.S., including people of color, women, immigrants, gays, college graduates, etc., AND the lengths to which they'd go to try and turn the clock back to some previous time when the TPers felt comfortable.
Like the 1930s.
