    Obama is sinking in Florida. A bunch of freaks, young and old, will not turn that tide for President Zero.

    UHOH...Libertarians get your hankies out...your hero Ron Paul AGREES with the wall street protesters...

    Even a few Republicans made positive remarks: Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), a candidate for the GOP presidential nomination, called the demonstrations “a legitimate effort;” Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer, who’s also running for president, told protesters, “Please know that I stand by you.”

    Something seems fishy here.
    This movement is starting to get organized and it will likely be a force in the 2012 election. The GOP's usual tactic of shouting insults, calling them socialists, anarchists, haters of American, Godless criminals, etc. is not working anymore. People have quit believing this nonsense. Even the Gray voters are starting to align with this movement.

    This feels a lot like the political wave that got the civil rights act of 1964 passed over the vehement warnings from the GOP that giving Blacks equally would destroy this country and make white people unsafe on streets and in homes. That was poppycock and what you are saying now about the wealthy creating jobs if they are given tax breaks and few regulations is poppycock. The middle class and used to be middle class are taking this country back.

    I'm not saying it won't end up being taken over by the Democratic party, that's entirely possible. As it is now, in it's current form it is grass roots. Despitre the rhetoric from the right, the Democratic party is just as pro-Wall Street as the Republican party. Yeah, Obama talks about fat cats but Wall Street donates just as much if not more to Democratic canidates as Republicans. Schumer is a Wall Street guy through and through.

    Just like the Tea Partiers are suspicious of Republican politicians because they tend to spend as bad as Democrats.
    Liberals are suspicious of the Democratic party because it tends to be as pro-Wall Street and big business as the Republicans.

    Lets be honest, coporate money and Wall Street dominates both parties. You can't raise a 500+ million dollar warchest from working stiffs.

    Brian Williams did do an excellent special on Katrina he did on the anniversary several years ago. I think it was two hours long and really was top-notch.

    Don't you think somebody in a leadership role would have to decide what to put on the website?

    Somewhere somebody is typing in what they want the website to say as a representative of the group/protest, so I would say that person has a leadership role.

    Was the GOP really saying that or was it the democratic party that was against the civil right movement?

    That is where the Tea Party lost me...at first I was like "yeah, these bailouts needed to happen but something stinks in Washington"....I got behind the idea of "throw the bums out" (until it was obvious they just meant Democrats mainly) and could sympathize running up deficits (until I learned they just want to cut taxes further and get rid of virtually everything except the DoD)...they came across as very anti-establishment.

    Then the bait and switch, anti-establishment is not less regulation and lower taxes for corporations! That's purely establishment propaganda. At that point it was obvious the Tea Party was just ultra conservatives and spoke for no one except a sliver of the population.

    I think astrocrabgrass would be about as far as you can get without undermining all the dismissal you're also passing out.

    Not anymore. The usually solidly GOP grey voters from FL are joining in as are the usually GOP older voters elsewhere. We would like to thank Rick 'Ponzi scheme" Perry and John 'cut entitlements' Boehner plans for steering these voters away from the Republican party.
