    I think the Tea Party movement was your downfall this year. The Tea Party movement was just a little much for middle America.

    Yes 548, which says what about middle America. As for any revelations of your ability to intelligently observe, the tea party wasn't running and wasn't even a player.

    I think you are wrong. Michelle Bachman basically started the tea party and she ran for President, did she not?

    By the way, the Tea Party is more of a movement of the most conservative republicans than it is a political party.

    You've heard of Blue Dog Democrats have you not? They represent the right leaning members of the left. Same with the Tea Party, they represent the right leaners of the right.

    Tea Party is why we still have the House.

    The representatives are the product of their individual districts, whereas the President and the Senators recieve their votes from the entire State, but tilted hanks to the heavily populated cities where Liberals dwell.

    So, most high wizard 548, how come so many left leaning Democrats joined hands with the Tea Party???

    As for the "Blue Dog Democrats" they are no longer around, they've been swallowed up by the "Hammer and Sickle Red Democrats".

    Wireguy, please educate yourself before minimizing the intelligence of others. I have made it easy for you. This is an excerpt from the Tea Party Movement wiki page:


    The Tea Party movement is not a national political party; polls show that most Tea Partiers consider themselves to be Republicans[35][36] and the movement's supporters have tended to endorse Republican candidates.[37] Commentators, including Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport, have suggested that the movement is not a new political group but simply a re-branding of traditional Republican candidates and policies.[35][38][39] An October 2010 Washington Post canvass of local Tea Party organizers found 87% saying "dissatisfaction with mainstream Republican Party leaders" was "an important factor in the support the group has received so far".[40]

    Was was pretty obvious to those who voted, there was no Tea Party on the ballots.


    This may surprise you 548, but there were cases where fiscal conservative Democrats were endorsed over Republicans.

    Great deal of misunderstanding by the media and the Left what the Tea Party is all about, which is spending and taxes.

    They have no platform for or against things like gay rights, birth control, abortion or anything else the Republicans bog themselves down with.

    If you refer to the link I priovided, it is from the Tea Party website and more accurate than something Wikipedia mis-information.

    Like I said, they weren't running. They are a movement, not a candidate.The republican party leadership detest them, so they can hardly be said to represent the republican party, the party that got their tails kicked.

    Both typical Repubs and Dems fear the Tea Party. The Tea Party rocks their boat.

    Wait till the economy goes to hell. Those with brains will see the light, but the Dems will blame the fiscal conservatives, and the lib media will back them up.

    No ethics or morals left in the media.

    I don't know how fiscal conservatives could be blamed. Obama is running this train.

    548, your statement is inaccurate and moronic.

    Michelle Bachmann did not start the tea party.

    "
    A Televised Birth of a Movement
    CNBC's Rick Santelli is widely credited with launching the grassroots movement. While standing on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange on February 19, 2009, he unleashed what can only be called a rant against the Obama Administration's proposal to help homeowners facing foreclosure refinance their mortgages.

    "Do we really want to subsidize the losers' mortgages?" he asked. "This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor's mortgage that has an extra bathroom and can't pay their bills?" He went on to suggest that he would organize a Chicago Tea Party in July, where capitalists would dump "some derivative securities into Lake Michigan." The video of his tirade became a YouTube hit, and thus the movement was born. Within weeks, Tea Party protests were sprouting up all over the country. The Tea Party name, a clear reference to the American colonists' dumping of tea into Boston Harbor to protest taxes imposed by King George, stands as an acronym as well: Taxed Enough Already."

    Halfmile, do you hear that. It's people laughing at you, not with you.

    Everyone is well aware of Santelli's live rant on CNBC. But Santelli is a talking head on TV, it takes politicians to sign onto the movement. And of those early politicians to sign onto the movement, Bachmann was one of the first.

    Even though there were no actual tea party candidates on the ballot their reputation has tarnished the Republican party enough to lose the election.

    The majority of people actually agree with most of the tea party's platform but not in such a perceived radical way. Baby steps will get a person walking faster than just getting up and trying to run.

    Like any other subject we all have our own opinion.

    Yes and we all have our own delusions and fantisies, created and influenced by our ignorance, prejudices, and associations.


    You guys just keep up with the hate on things we hold dear and we will double down on yours.

    Class warfare and division, ah, it's a wonderful and inspiring thing. Bless you President Osama Bin Obama.

    ------------------------------------------

    Again, if theTea Party is another step to the destruction of the Conservative Right, I would think you guys would just keep your mouths shut and let us self destruct. Perhaps you are really afraid of the Tea Party message?

    Since the election, I want all my fellow Republican, Libratarian and other Conservatitve friends to consider taking a new tack with the destructive practices of the Left.

    Help them succeed, so they fail!

    Encourage them to add more to their roster with the likes of Babs Boxer, Harry Looney Reid, Nazi Pelosi, Elizabeth Hiawatha Warren.

    Let them rant about stealing from the rich to give to the poor, free healthcare, free phones, free everything.

    When we read a story about a bunch of inner city people who drove to the suburbs to plunder and pillage, we will know both they and we have succeeded, when we see the TV interview of one of the looters saying when asked why did he do this, say;

    "Well, we got the message, from President Obama that, these rich people, 'they didn't earn that!' They have to pay more and give back to the folks they stole that from."

    Coming soon to a TV news cast in your area.

    lts,,,,,Ted Cruz, junior Senator from Texas,,,,,,was not only touted but support by TEA party members,,,,,,here in Texas most R's are STILL conservative,,,,,,,the mainstream R's have just become D light and the waffling to the left has gotten this country in deep doodoo,,,,,while I agree with you in going slow under normal conditions,,,,,,,,we are not in normal conditions at this time and with the potential of $20+ TRILLION in debt within the next 4 years,,,,,,something has to be done and done SOON!!!!

    While I don't agree with all of the rash ideas of the TEA party,,,,,,they do have name recognition and there needs to be a "conservative" type of party,,,,,,it used to be the R party, but with the request to "move to the middle" to attract independent voters,,,,,many have gone middle left to just become little d's.......
