    Little did you know that these are actually tea partiers trying to discredit their critics by pretending to be crashers who are pretending to be tea partiers. Nobody ever suspects the triple cross!

    And then there are tea partiers who really are just racist, homophobic bigots.

    But is anyone really that intelligent if they judge an entire group of people by the actions of a few?

    This tea party is a more tame version of the Leftist flower-power movements. They start with broad ideological demands, but they start to loose steam eventually, or some of their more prominent members change picket signs for briefcases that says "GoP" and they become disillusioned to face the ideological gap between sane America and partisan America.
    Why should I take the word of a leftist on this?

    Surprisingly good line, if somewhat inaccurate. I at least got a chuckle in the manner you intended.

    This story is a classic example of stupidity. The Tea Party folks have done nothing to deserve people messing with them like this, the guy doing it is clearly a fruitcake, and this is not how politics should be in this country. I will point out though that just as the Tea Party supporters always point out, accurately, that the fringe with the over the top signs and statements are not representative of them, this idiot is not representative of anything other than a handful of idiots on the other fringe. We need to on both sides stop giving so much attention to the fringe element idiots.

    No, but it seems to be quite common around here.

    We are not frightened, we are apalled by the mass hypocrisy of a group that suffered worse abuse through 8 years of George Bush, but suddenly are outraged by a president who has included Republican ideas in his legislation despite their refusal to support it. They rail against higher taxes, though their taxes have not gone up, they scream about government-run health care, though the health care bill is no such thing, they foam about dictatorial powers, though this president is the most mainstream since Eisenhower. The "left" is curious how long so many people can labor under the fiction that Obama is "radical".

    This President went out of his way to push ideas from the opposing party. He went out of his way to invite key opposition leadership to help draft bills. He struck for compromise on controversial issues that his base didn’t wish. People railed against him only helping the rich, but he didn’t. They scream about “lies” concerning linking Iraq directly to the 9/11 attacks, yet it was only those making ignorant assumptions out of hatred that ever heard such stated links. They worried about dictatorial powers and detention centers and covert arrest of political opponents, yet here we stand with a new President. He was the most mainstream President since Eisenhower.

    If you couldn’t guess at the top, you should by the bottom. Talking about Bush. You know…Prescription drug, No Child Left Behind, Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

    It’s amazing how you can cherry pick certain details and focus on the tree’s rather than the forest and claim things. Doesn’t make your assertion any more true in reality however.
