    Peh! What are they going to do? Vote Democrat?
    The only thing they can do, put them out of a job with someone who may uphold the core of Conservatism.

    Please provide evidence of this.

    Go tell Murkowski that... I'm sure she'd be amused.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Every Republican politician runs on the platform that they represent the core of conservatism. Tell me how that has worked out so far?

More than half of Tea Partiers (53 percent) disapproved of Roe v. Wade, compared to 34 percent of all respondents.

    She got replaced by an ardent prolifer, even in cases of rape and incest. That guarantees that even if he goes back on every other promise, he will have the support of the right.

    What surprises me -- well it doesn't surprise me that much -- is that the Tea Party is only sponsoring REPUBLICAN candidates. How about a Libertarian? Or an Independent? Or a Bluedog candidate (conservative Democrat)?

    Tea Party movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Tea Party has shown me where their allegiance lies... to the Republican party, not just to fiscal conservatives.
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    Yes, which party has trillion dollar deficits the past two years for the first time in history? Which party has had higher unemployment each month of 2010 vs. 2009? Obama supporters are running from his record and we all can see why.

    Both. One for 10 years of leadership that lead to a recession and another that has acted slowly in bringing about new growth to the economy since it has ended.

    Which party has given Congress it's lowest approval rating in history? Which party has pissed off sooooooo many Americans, that they started a whole new political movement in this country?

    Which party is going to get it's ass handed to it between now and 2012?

    Funny. A major political movement from America's anger lost the Republicans their place in 2008 and now a major political movement is on the verge of making the Democrats lose their position. America has gotten awfully good at being angry, but still only has two really bad choices.

    Do liberals ever take responsibility for anything. Democrats have controlled Congress for the last four years and as good as liberals believe they are, I find it amazing that you would not expect more than you are getting. The recession ended last June and yet this year unemployment is higher each month than it was last year. In addition economic growth is 1.6% which is down from last year. so you still want to blame Republicans? Let's see if I have this right, Democrats made things better last year and ended the recession but a year later things are worse and yet it reverts back to the Republican problem? LOL, you people should go on tour as a comedy team.
