    Tea partiers descend on Capitol Hill

    Tea partiers descend on Capitol Hill


    The Tea Party holds no seat in Congress, but at least 10,000 of the party’s members descended on Capitol Hill Thursday to rally against a Democratic-written health care overhaul.

    A plan first hatched and heralded on FOX by iconic conservative Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) grew over the weekend as she e-mailed with a handful of colleagues. By the time activists started arriving at the foot of the Capitol around 8:30 a.m., it was clear no Republican leader could stay away.

    Minority Leader John Boehner, Republican Whip Eric Cantor and Conference Chairman Mike Pence all spoke.

    Inside, Democrats were working to finalize a trillion-dollar health care bill that they say will deliver insurance to tens of millions of Americans who currently lack it, improve the quality of care and rein in costs both for individuals and the government.

    Outside, on the grassy lawn just steps from where Barack Obama took the oath of office, an endless lineup of rank-and-file lawmakers and conservative All Stars – Bachmann, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, actor Jon Voigt and Mark Levin, author of “Liberty and Tyranny” – demanded that the health care bill be torn asunder.

    “Madam Speaker, throw out this bill,” bellowed Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich.).

    “Oh come on, tell them how you really feel,” Bachmann yelled to the crowd from a temporary podium at the foot of the Capitol.

    “Kill the bill! Kill the bill! Kill the bill!” the crowd replied.

    “That’s exactly what you’re going to tell them,” said Bachmann, who was the clear favorite of the assembled masses.

    She has more cojones than a lot of guys,” said Barbara McGrath, who traveled from Troy, Ohio, to participate.
    So, some tea party folks think Obama wasn't born in the U.S. and others believe that Michell Bachmann has testicles--apparently more than two.

    I think some of the signs at this latest shameful example of fear and ignorance fueled by hyper-partisan talking points tell the story:



    Yes, it's actually a picture of holocaust bodies. These people have no shame and no brains.



    Well, bully for you.



    Lemme guess, Beck has been harping on Mao lately... Am I right?



    And then they wheel out God to hammer the message home. Testify!!

    A dozen people were arrested outside of Nancy Pelosi’s office.

    Bachmann Crazy Overdrive.

    Seems to be the unhinged wing of the Tea Party showed up to heed Bachmann's call. Damn, those signs are

    Yep. I'm sure that 1st amdendment thingie is near the top of the list way above the 400 other campaign promises he's not intending to keep. But Obama can't be bothered with these "citizens" ... hell, he didn't have time to worry about the elections that just happened - too busy with the basketball game on TV. I hope he and all the other far left liberals keeps whining and ignoring about these regular people. Makes 2012 more certain for a "CHANGE" every day.

    This was a great day for American Patriots who want to defeat Obamas marxist agenda. Another rally is planned for Saturday as Pelosi will ask for a vote to pass the Health Care Plan. The sign with the alleged holocaust bodies is nothing more that a symbol of freedom of expression carried by the Patriot. It symbolizes the reality of what will happen to patients under the Obama Health Plan.

    I love to read how the Leftist who claim everyone else is hateful are always first to call names and make disparaging remarks about others and as in this case they all all lies made up to detract from the issues at hand. The use of the term Tea Party in the mouths of the leftist is used with disgust and disdain and the people who attend these functions are called all kinds of unsavory things as pert of the leftist obfuscation. The turth is these crowds are peaceful polite they don't leave a massive mess behind like the Obama crowd did in January, they have legitimate questions and concerns that either go unanswered or ignored completely by a goofy bunch of idiots in Washington, and their dazed and confused followers are so happy still fighting against Bush they will will go along with anything their nonsensical inept amateurish leader Obama, Pelosi,and Reid come up with.
    It would be nice if they would stop for one minute and think about the questions being asked and mess Obama is making worse and for once put the welfare of the Nation ahead of the glee they feel from being part of a party and they might start being part of a Nation instead of constantly running it down.

    I'll say it before... the tea partiers have no united cause. They all come out of the woodwork protesting about an array of different things. They have no coherency.

    Seeing those signs is disturbing. I'm not sure which is worse, the fact that they think the rest of the country takes them seriously, or the fact that their signs are all talking points from Fox news. Have the news conglomerates risen to religious proportions or something?

    For what its worth, you can go to any rally sponsored by people of any political persuasion and see signs that are just as stupid. Crazies flock to rallies like moths to the flame.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    People are listening to Fox because the rest of the of the Lame Stream Obamedia is no better than a shill for Obama. Even the most hated guy the left has their sites on may be a bit melodramatic, but Beck uses Obama's and his disciples own words to prove what he says it true.
    The signs are only confusing to those who are blinded by their faith in their false Messiah's lies I believe the last count I saw was an astronomical number.
