    Tea Party activists are a mix of far-right, fringe-right, really right of center right, bigots, and assorted mentally unstable folks.

    I thought it started with little Rick in Chicago bleating away on CNBC ...

    They called themselves that first. Made up signs saying 'Tea bag the White House' and other nonsense. One who Tea Bags is a Teabagger. They were dumb

    Yes......don't you get it GOP....you've got to become the teabag party.
    Shun the moderates....shun the independents......embrace the teabaggers and the right-wing base. This is the new GOP.
    I am continually amused when Liberals attempt to define Conservatism or the Republican Party while their candidates run this country into the sewer.

    But alas, when your party continues to destroy the economy, accomplish nothing and demagogue their opponents, you have to find something to divert attention onto.

    What do Democrats stand for? Huge deficits, high unemployment, zero GDP growth and policies that do nothing for the people they claim to champion but rather make them dependent wards of the State.

    Hardly anything to be proud of which would explain why Liberals and their willing allies in the mainstream media keep trying to demagogue their political opponents.

    What evidence do you have to back this claim up? What a handfull of people making a bogus comparison of Obama to Hitler(Like liberals have done no such thing when Bush was in office). I think the people with the bogus comparison of Obama to Hiler signs was the health care townhall meetings not the tea party protests.

    These are free americans that are standing up for their liberty, no party is representing those rights, so it is only logical that they throw these republicans under the bus!

    I am actually proud of america again!

    It is absolutely dillusional that anyone would think that the people of this nation would trust the Republicans to run anything in 16 years much less 13 months.

    They don't even have control over their own party.

    Aren't you the same guy who insisted most tea partiers were nothing more than partisan Republicans? But now those same partisan Republicans are turning on Republican leadership and pushing their own candidates in oppositition to the GOP leadership's candidates.

    Tea partiers just can't win with you. Not that I consider that a startling revelation, but I felt I needed to point that out here.

    It all strikes me as a spell of political insanity on the tea-baggers part.
