    So you like having the National Parks closed? I thought so. The only thing the Tea's are pressuring is the economy. The billions in lost economic activity is what they were after. Conservatives hate healthy growing economies. It weakens their position.

    Healthy, growing economies are a good thing...but the national parks are not going to tank the economy. Government deficit spending, however, will, as we've seen already in the last 5 years.

    In the house, getting independent votes is not as important in districts as it is statewide. The Republicans better get their little civil war over in a hurry or they will wake up the day after next years election with the whole government in Democratic hands and the possibility of a filibuster proof senate in the Dems favor.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Republican money bundlers are beginning to back away from TEA-members and candidates, with FOUR RINO-primaries already..

    The Sen. Coburn plan of 2011, grand bargain, would have us half way home to a balanced budget..
    Too bad for Boehner..That was his and our first loss with this caucus .

    It's good to have a growing economy in 2013 compared to the end of 2008..
    Republicans CRUZ, PALIN, LEE, KING-IA, KLAYMAN and confederate flags will continue to use our Veterans..
    We've lost 1,000,000 govt. jobs..
    With a sensible "grand-bargain" plan like Coburn's, we'd be back to Reagan defict #s

    In reality, I think the tea bagger agenda will be completely defused when Obama's term is over and the racist element no longer exists. The baggers will no longer have the motivation that keeps them hating.
    I don't believe many understand what the Tea Party's principals and ideology actually consist of given our MSM progressive media TELLING -- or better yet -- talking at their viewers in an attempt to brainwash them with progressive big government propaganda.

    In the way libertarian and the Party is portrayed in the internet, MSM and even the White House cabinet - is nothing short of propaganda....

    Hell, now that some "life long democrats" have seen their insurance premiums under Obamacare rise by as much as 50-100% (which republicans depicted since the very begining when the idea was debated back in 9-10 -- now they're all of a sudden changing their viewpoint about Obama "Iesus"....

    Funny how when progressive policies an other legislation trickle down to you - all of a sudden you go bat**** insane

    Reid's reelection was a particularly egregious failure of the Tea Party and GOP in general. Nobody likes Harry Reid. Of all the seats to take, that was probably one of the easiest I can remember in my adult life. And they failed. All the GOP had to do was run a bog standard Boring McBoringface Republican and it would have been a landslide. They could even have been pretty far into the conservative side of the spectrum and had that seat in hand from day one.

    Instead, the GOP primary came up with a person who was literally a conspiracy nut. I think that woman might have been half ****ing senile. When your candidate proclaims that upon losing an election, their side can just resort to ****ing shooting the victors, you should rethink your support for this party. Oh, excuse me, "second amendment remedies."

    The worst part is? A lot of Republicans convinced themselves that 2010 was the norm, rather than an outlier. A lot of them think that the losses in 2012 were because they were running people who weren't conservative enough. If they keep this mindset in 2014, they're going to be greatly disappointed.

    Yeah, the economy is going through a golden age under Obama.

    Healthy, growing economies mean fewer people getting government handouts...perfect scenario for the Libbos.
