tea party And Their Supporters Are A Joke
It's not my job to govern how you blog, it's my job to govern my blog.
RE Mark Steyn; When you put your trust in someone who drops out of school to become an entertainer who then turns music critic/music author and then becomes a right wing social issue commentator, You are surely better to think of him as an entertainer rather than a factual writer.
The far right loves to show debt graphs, especially ones with whimsical bleak futures intended to scare rather than be realistic. I wonder why they never show the following graph detailing US debt as compared to GDP. The correlation past to present is telling. Please note the paralleling event that caused debt to skyrocket and then call your Congressional delegate and ask them to bring the troops home.
How many times in the past two weeks have you heard the far right scream that government should stay out of religion? When will religion stay out of government?
Rick Santorum questions Obama's Christian values .By STEVE PEOPLES
The Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio — White House candidate Rick Santorum on Saturday questioned President Barack Obama's Christian values and attacked GOP rival Mitt Romney's Olympics leadership as he courted tea party activists and evangelical voters in Ohio, "ground zero" in the 2012 nomination fight.
Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator known for his social conservative policies, said that Obama's agenda is "not about you. It's not about your quality of life. It's not about your jobs. It's about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology."

From Barbara Riddle giving us lip service on who the tea party is;
We are God-believing people. We teach the Constitution and adhere to it. Our members are folks who are veterans, schoolteachers, small-business owners and retirees who paid taxes and took care of our families — and still do. We also give to charities and volunteer.
From The Tennesean, actually showing us who the tea party is;
Councilman, tea party group founder arrested
A Nashville councilman and the founder of a Sumner County tea party group have been charged with patronizing prostitution.
Councilman Brady Banks and Sumner United for Responsible Government co-founder Matthew Moynihan were caught in a sting on Thursday after responding to an Internet advertisement for an escort service, according to a police account reported in The Tennessean.
Barbara forgot about mentioning how politically crooked the tea party is also. Remember the Floridian tea party bloggers slathering for Rick Scott and other tea party favorites in Florida. Here's the result of a tea party takeover in Flori-duh;
Lobbyists' pay hits a record – and it's paid off
February 17, 2012|Aaron Deslatte, Capitol ViewTALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott told supporters in 2010 his hard-fought electoral win was leaving Tallahassee insiders "crying in their cocktails" as a Tea Party-fueled election wave swept record Republican super-majorities into the Capitol.
But in reality, those insiders are laughing all the way to the bank.
Year-end reports indicate that companies, unions, trade associations and local governments spent a record $127 million to lobby the Florida Legislature in 2011 – topping the $116 million spent in 2010. The figure represents the mean of all individual contracts, most of which are reported to the state in $10,000 ranges.
And the most grievious find this week from a local blogging tea party member, and an event becoming more and more common place amonst tea party members. Another example of weak minded individuals giving up.
Now even if Obama should win reelection, what do people think will happen in 2016 when a President Ryan or Rubio takes office?
The primaries aren't even concluded and they are already hedging their bets.
