    But for the record, liberals also want you to make as much money as you can. In fact, they want EVERYONE to have that opportunity -- not just those who won the good/rich parents lottery.
    I am not sure where you get your information but it is totally FALSE. T.E.A. Party stands for taxed enough already.

    As for the liberals wanting someone to make as much as possible then how do you explain demonization of individual wealth creation and "spreading the wealth" around? You really are out of touch with reality. I stand by my statement. No Conservative cares how much you make but liberals do care that you remain dependent and continue to support those that create that dependence.

    I get my information from polling firms that have examined the makeup of the Tea Party (overwhelmingly older, white, Christian, angry at blacks and immigrants) and their priorities (prayer in schools, abortion, gay marriage, etc.).

    What office does Buffet hold? Love his hypocrisy though. anyone that believes they aren't paying enough in taxes should just write the check. What prevents Buffet from doing that?

    I'll take his business experience, financial acumen and economic expertise over yours anyday.

    Don't you get tired of making a fool of yourself. The only ones angry at Blacks seem to be liberals that want them dependent. What is the black unemployment rate today with an African American President? What has Obama done to help minorities other than keep them dependent?

    You really have a distorted view of Conservatives, Republicans, and the T.E.A. "Party."

    Yeah, because teabaggers welcome blacks into their fold ...

    Re the OP, Obama's approval ratings still far exceed Congress's, which has a disapproval rating of 82% the last I read, and I'm not sure how the other 18% is split between the other choices polled, so the Tea Baggers cum Republican cultists aren't able to spin much out of that, especially since so many people still remember Republicans are responsible for over 80% of the deficit they suddenly got all Concerned And Stuff about recently, and of course the downgrade in securities is a direct result of Tea Bagger Sand Bagging, not Obama, so that bull hockey is only flying at the Freeper Asylums and Town Hall.

    It appears the Tea Baggers will self-destruct before the end of the election cycle, as they should, since they have no solutions, only a lot of money from Koch and a few others, just a ploy to keep most of the dumbest voters pulling the R lever. The R's have no viable candidate for Prez, and as Congressional disapproval far outruns Obama's decline, the Tea Baggers will lose their seats after one term, and the R's won't be gaining more than a couiple, as opposed to maybe 10 they were hoping for.

    "So what do Tea Partiers have in common? They are overwhelmingly white, but even compared to other white Republicans, they had a low regard for immigrants and blacks long before Barack Obama was president, and they still do.

    More important, they were disproportionately social conservatives in 2006 — opposing abortion, for example — and still are today. Next to being a Republican, the strongest predictor of being a Tea Party supporter today was a desire, back in 2006, to see religion play a prominent role in politics. And Tea Partiers continue to hold these views: they seek “deeply religious” elected officials, approve of religious leaders’ engaging in politics and want religion brought into political debates. The Tea Party’s generals may say their overriding concern is a smaller government, but not their rank and file, who are more concerned about putting God in government."

    We have an African American President and high African American unemployment so tell me how Democrats care about the Blacks? Suggest you talk to Allen West before calling the Tea Party anti black? I always find it interesting that liberals have no problem with abortion now that they were born.

    Keep ignoring what Conservatives really want and that is for even you to make a lot of money and create a lot of personal success. I often wonder why I waste my time with people like you.
