    Are you referring to the same "freedom friers" that Bush and the Republicans respected so much?
    Didn't the DNC come out recently and claim Republicans were in lot with terrorists because they criticized Obama for having been awarded the Peace Prize? Did you just hit your own glass house with that rock you just hucked?

    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.
    Theris nothing inconsistent about it. The teabaggers represent the fringiest of the GOP fringe. Even the GOP candidates aren't far enough to the right for them.
    This is where the GOP is headed?
    That's good news.....
    (for Democrats).

    The Democrats are inept, they can only win if the GOP ****s up more. Where does that leave us? With two parties who **** up all the time; we just try to go with one which ****s up the least. Problem is, they both do it rather equally. Now saying that the tea party folk are the extreme is a bit of a misleading statement. Because ultimately the tea party folk believe in restricted, small government and many people still believe in that. It's just that neither party has represented this since corporate forces and wall street are definitely not in the small government camp. So we get left with one status-quo party. Currently, that's where we are. If you really like one party politics, I guess you can continue cheering. But I like dynamical opposition.

    ...tea party forces are confronting the Republican establishment by backing insurgent conservatives and generating their own candidates — even if it means taking on GOP incumbents.


    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 thought, judging from your myriad of nonsensical posts, that the GOP was always an extreme-right out of the mainstream party?

    Don't ask for consistency from partisans. It's like asking for rain in the desert, you're bound to be disappointed.

    No....actually...there was a time when the GOP was a viable alternative.
    The Barry Goldwater Republican party was actually a party with a lot of good ideas.
    There are still some good people in the Republican party. However, the GOP for the past couple of decades has been controlled by the far-right base.
    This current move to move even further to the right and purge the party of moderates is nothing but good news to the Democratic party.
    Yes....let the GOP cater to the fringe and the moderates and independents will move right along with it.....to the Democrats.
    Thank you teabaggers!
