    I think that probably explains why their approval rating continues to decline in the country.

    Is this going to turn into another "lefty infiltrators" conspiracy?
    I hope not. So far, you seem to be the one trying to bring this up.

    And it's more than possible that there were all sorts of folks in the audience, including curious independents.

    Not that this probably matters. Partisans already have their script. Never mind that in the audio only two men's voices are heard; that's enough proof that the Tea Party is evil and wants the sick and uninsured to die.

    Is that why you dishonestly made up that BS about a "diatribe" against "almost half the country"?

    I think the percentage is much higher than you think. Here are 5 from just one thread on our forum here:

    I was fairly shocked in their openness about it.

    It's possible. Though it's interesting that everytime somebody acts like a complete jackass at a Republican or Tea Party event, it's probably that all sorts of people show up. If, however, Jimmy Hoffa Jr. says something wrong....well, that's indicative of everybody that voted for Obama

    Then those two people are classless people. They are the lowest of the low. If some of them end up voting for Rick Perry, so be it. I'm not going to paint them as anything else to save some people's sensiblities. Cheering a person's death makes you a terrible person, Tea Party or not.

    Why are right wingers 'lying' when they use phrases like "pro life", "personal responsibility", ect?
    Because their actions prove they believe otherwise

    Then why didn't anyone shout those bozos down?

    It's not as if the rightwingers have never done this before, and even though there's no doubt that rightwingers were in the audience, you don't hear them being shouted down for their despicable behavior.

    Anti abortion activists chanting "Let him die, let him die."

    This is why I hate the pro life movement in general. Most anti abortion activists really aren't pro life at all. I actually do respect real pro lifers though, however, there are not many of them. And these ****ing idiots want to say I am a bad person because I support abortion rights... .. Please, I'd never shout and cheer to let somebody die. If I had the money to pay for such people to live and be happy, I would. I think I have a lot more morals than these neoconservative Christians.

    Absolutely disgusting.

    I wonder if he was equally taken aback by the crowd cheering his record number of executions.
