    Exactly and Eric Cantor would shove a knife in the back of John Boehner if he could get away with it. Cantor wants to be Speaker very badly.

    Ahh.. and what facts lead you to that conclusion then? Please post non media matter sources.
    “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.

    The thing that pisses me off about this thread and all threads like it is it shows how damn dysfunctional our government is. And instead of you guys demanding a government that works, the majority of you are playing into it and blaming each others party. This government is completely broken, this country is going down hill, if you want to blame the right person then you should all blame yourselves.

    Why should I blame myself?

    I suppose if it's not a party, Teabagger really is more appropriate than Teapartier.
    A thought just occurred after thinking about this for a while... seems the Florida Tea Party at the time also thought of it. Perhaps the person registering the Tea Party in Florida wasn't part of the movement at all... gee... a page right out of Alinsky's book there huh?

    Nice... Obama's within 9% of Bush 43 in only 2 1/2 years.

    Why would I care why Tea Partiers won't register in other states? The point is, they are a political party in Florida and can be anywhere. They choose not to be.

    Ummm, Fred O'Neil is a registered Republican.

    Seems you think he is a Republican pretending to be a Democrat pretending to be a Teabagger.
