    From the "Weekly Standard" - Here is Circumstance #3. You can read the other five at the link,

    "Circumstance #3: The gulf between the Christine O’Donnell element of the Tea Party and the GOP establishment is enormous.

    Before Boehner had to modify his debt ceiling legislation last Friday, he still had the support of almost 90 percent of the House GOP conference, and about 80 percent of the conservative Republican Study Committee members. So it would be misleading to call the rebellion against Boehner a broad-based movement on the right. Still, it happened, and it did its damage. Now large numbers of Republican primary voters, and even more independent general election voters, will be wary of supporting a Republican candidate in 2012 if the party looks as if it’s in the grip of an infantile form of conservatism. On the other hand, a conventional establishment candidate will have trouble uniting the conservative coalition."

    "An infantile form of conservatism", what a good phrase. I've been wondering what to the O'Donnell movement. Infantile conservatism works nicely.

    Stop listening to your liberal media masters.

    A lot of conservatives want no increase in the debt ceiling, and no increase in taxes. The tea party is the only group actually trying to fulfill that. They're doing exactly what many of us want them to do.

    The whole purpose of Obama wanting "compromise" is so he can drive a wedge between the tea party and those who support them. You think this hasn't been planned and played like a fine tuned fiddle?

    Skeet,

    The NRA also endorsed Christine O'Donnell; as did the Republican Party.

    Get over your incessant ranting need to justify your venal ill-informed opinion of one small segment of the Delaware Tea Party. It's a politically worthless state for conservatives anyway. Your obsessive need to justify your position is worn out here, and frankly has become unhealthy.

    Billy Kristol has become another malignant media type that is watching his career fade in the rear-view mirror, and is scared as Hell about his pending insignificance. You don't get any traction from his desperate words. Maybe some pity at this point, but most likely not even much of that.

    IME,
    Kip

    What you are observing is the rare occurrence of people who had made a promise to the electorate and then kept that promise after they got elected.

    While it was contrary to the politics au usual crowd, they did what they promised.

    It's called keeping your word. Something never found in the leftist mindset.

    Somewhere ; Somehow ; Someone has got to step up and put a halt to this trainwreck of out-of-control "spending the country into prosperity". It IS not working ; It HAS NEVER worked throughout history ; It CAN NEVER work........

    If there is anyone who cannot foresee the eventual outcome of this administration's long-term goal of impoverishing the populace, I only hope you are the first to sink with the good ship OBAMA.

    Actually Kip Delaware and Nevada were extremely important to the Conservative cause. If the Infantile Tea Party hadn't been so dogmatic, juvenile, and short-sighted the bill you would like would be on the president's desk now.

    the juveniles in this whole fiasco had been the dems and their (your) fearless leader,,,,where was the budget LAST YEAR when hussein had BOTH sides of congress,,,,where is HIS current plan,,,,seems like our previous presidents have submitted a plan to congress and SAID THEY WERE DOING SO in the State of the Union address,,,,seem I have "missed" this plan and talk from hussein,,,,

    hussein and reid's BIG stopping point is how long the increase lasts, 2012 or 2013,,,,trying to get them cover before the 2012 election,,,,oh, BTW did YOU MISS the Cut Cap and Balance bill that the REPUBLICANS ALREADY passed through the house and was stopped by reid (i think he is a democrat and just may be from Nevada),,,, or did you forget the PLAN that Paul Ryan put forth in, March, I believe,,,,kinda juvenile of your democrats, don't you think.....

    Skeet,

    Your math has never added up, just like your lack of logic, or your (miss) understanding of facts. I've wasted my last click on your posts.

    The promise to halt spending.

    You don't know much about the Tea Party, do you, other than they pose a threat to Liberal insanity.

    It is said that Liberals will tell us what they fear. clearly it is theTea Party. BONUS!!!! The old guard Republicans fear them too.

    If the Tea Party was such a threat to the Conservative Objective, the Left would clearly stand out of the way and let the suicide commence.

    Good points Rick, especially the last one. It's just like with Sarah Palin- if she was as stupid and unimportant and the liberals claim they wouldn't spend all their time bashing her.

    As always, it's far better to watch what liberals do rather than listen to their babbling.

    Barker - Show one place that a tea party winner promised they would halt spending. That's insane.
