    But is anyone really that intelligent if they judge an entire group of people by the actions of a few?
    The biased MSM would definitely consider the actions of a very few tea party members to be characteristic of the whole movement. These MSM fools have been unsuccessful, however, in damaging the momentum of the movement. For SEIU to get similar treatment, there would have to be youtube videos of hordes of SEIU sign-carrying, union zombies shooting old ladies and kicking babies. Then, the MSM would probably let us know that this is not typical of these SEIU angels.

    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.
    You are accurate in that "this is not how politics should be in this country". And (as a tea party member) I know that the local tea party leadership (of which I am not) is a group of sincere, caring individuals. They appear to play fairly and honestly, and this (in addition to political ideology) draws me to the movement. However, I do not see the "other side" as even coming close to playing fairly... just my opinion.

    Foes of tea party movement to infiltrate rallies

    Who is "shocked" by this?
    Sillly...

    Lets say there WERE racist comments thrown about...but...for some reason no evidence or proof. Now...you will have the teabagged anti-teaparty groups MAKING those comments...so no matter what...it will be the anti-teaparty group that gets blamed. Not a very carefully thought out strategy.

The "left" is curious how long so many people can labor under the fiction that Obama is "radical".
    You tout the party talking points, I mean, lies well. Bush tax reductions have expired, therefore, that is a tax increase by omission (do... I... need... to... talk... slower... for... you...). Attempts at cap and trade, so far resisted by republicans and many independents, are an attempt to tax everything by the present administration. You somehow don't see that biasing all the rules against existing healthcare insurers will result eventually with a single healthcare provider... the government! Corporate takeovers of companies that should have been allowed to wilt on the vine in order to pay back the unions for their election support... you don't see the hypocrisy? Keep wallowing in your denial!

    However, I do have a sense of humor... I got a laugh from your signature picture.

    After the failed attempt to deflect the N word being called of a US congressman , then I have no doubt that the Tea Party movement will do anything what so ever to find excuses for the actions of their members or sympathizers. The Tea Party is getting more and more radical with death threats, attacks and soon I betcha ... murder.

    But we all know what kind of people are among the Tea Party... everything from out right factist, racists,to neo nazies and anarchists. I am not saying that everyone or even a majority are this radical, but you can not deny that they are there or trying to "cuddle up" with the Tea Party movement because of their similar views on certain things.

    So face it.. a "they are infiltrating us" is just another excuse for not having a good enough handle on the members or sympathizers.
    You need to read more. No one has yet claimed the $100,000 reward for proving that the N word was used against the congressman. Cameras were rolling, but alas, no cigar! Perhaps the only hope is to have someone pretending to be a tea party member do the dirty deed, even with a SEIU T-shirt under his tea party shirt.

    Let me take a shot at some EU definitions, so I understand where you're coming from:
    fascist - anyone who works 40 hours a week
    racist - anyone who didn't vote for Obama
    Neo Nazi - anyone with short hair who didn't vote for Obama
    anarchist - anyone who holds a political sign that doesn't start with "Bush lied..."

    I'll be sure to give your best to my fascist, racist, anarchist friends next time we get together.

    Really? I am part of the "other side", how have I been unfair in this?

    No, I don't consider you the other side. We often disagree, but I respect how you present your opinion. I do, however, believe that there are many leftist activists who would stop at nothing to further their agenda. I have not found that to be the case in tea party members that I've associated with.

    What's the point of an agenda if you're not going to further it?
