    If you'd have the courage to actually read it, you'd know the piece goes a lot deeper then that.

    Furthermore, the Politco piece pretty much flushes the MSM left-leaning bias notion down the toilet.

    Pew's Project for Excellence in Journalism, which tracks media reports, found that the tea parties consumed a steady measure of news for most of this year before exploding during tax week to compete with the Icelandic volcano for attention and outstripping health care with 6% of all media reports that week.
    That's right, Rev, the Teabrains have become media darlings.

    Actually, you hit upon one of my primary points. Given their past (non) actions I don't believe for a second they embody any of the ideals Libertarians hold dear. Yes, Virginia, they are full of crap. Like I said before, they don't like big government unless they are in charge of it. Then it's fine. That's what their past (non)actions scream. And that's why I don't take them seriously.

    Nothing. Are you going to claim next you have been to a tea party rally? So many if the tebagged ball sucking crowd here has done so already. Heck they apparently have been to more than us tea party folk.
    Hell no. I can't stand being around raging hypocrites.

    Btw. Palim is not the tea party. She is an opportunist using this grass roots movement for her ow. Gain.

    I know she's not. She's just a big government Republican. So she has a lot in common with the tea party crowd.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    So how long do they need to be outspoken, before you say they are legit?



    Your strawman speculation notwithstanding of course.

    Nah you just want to whine about everyone it seems.



    I know she's not. She's just a big government Republican. So she has a lot in common with the tea party crowd.

    The tea party is not a big government crowd. Please lets not dumb this down any more than you all already have.

    Well, gosh, let's see. Does the fact they waited 30 years mean anything? It does to me. It screams hypocrisy. Even more so when you consider the Bush II years. Seems to me the "small government" crowd would have spoken up at some point. But nope. It's was all good. It's not a matter of how long you are outspoken. It's a matter of WHEN. And their WHEN is laughable.

    Nah you just want to whine about everyone it seems.
    Actually, as a point of order, it's the teabaggers whining, not me.


    The tea party is not a big government crowd. Please lets not dumb this down any more than you all already have.
    Sure they aren't. All those W stickers are just on the cars by accident I suppose. And all the GOP big government speakers are mere coincidence, right? How gullible are you?

    Then you weren't paying attention. Heck even sean hannity and Limbaugh would critisize Bush on his drunken sailor spending.

    Actually its the mouth foaming balls in the mouth teabagged, that is whining....


    Here is where you're a hypocrite..... We are "whinng" about the need for smaller government, less taxes, and more accountable reps.....


    Your a supposed libertarian whining about us "whining" about things you are supposed to be about.


    You sir, are aprofessional complainer.




    Sure they aren't. All those W stickers are just on the cars by accident I suppose. And all the GOP big government speakers are mere coincidence, right? How gullible are you?


    All of those "GOP big Government" speakers are a by product of the times. It was not nor was it part of the grass roots movement. It is opportunists trying to co-opt the tea party.


    How much daily Kos you been reading?

    While voting for him. Just another example of what I'm talking about! Thanks. Hannity and Rush are part of the problem. They help convince people to vote the clowns in office.

    Once again you fail to see the point even though I've said it numerous times. Based on their past non-action I don't believe them. I'm not a hypocrite in the least. If I thought they were honest instead of lying hypocrites I would jump on board.

    Let me repeat so you get it this time: I don't believe them. I don't think they are for smaller government. So how can I support them? THAT would make me a hypocrite. Not supporting them actually makes me the opposite.

    All of those "GOP big Government" speakers are a by product of the times. It was not nor was it part of the grass roots movement. It is opportunists trying to co-opt the tea party.
    So you guys show up to hear them anyway? Interesting. And yet you don't see why so many don't take you seriously. How can we?

    Re: Media Exaggerate Tea Party's Sway

    Ah, I get the problem.

    See, you have extreme, high in the sky, unable to deal with reality libertarian types that like to act like they're above the frey, smarter then everyone else who are simply "sheeple", and are holier than thou all so they can act like arrogant pompous know it alls by being "so pure", simply because they realize...even if its in the deep dark recesses of their brain...their ideology is just as extremist as the extreme left or the extreme right with the only difference is they have an even smaller chance of it ever actually being put into power in this country. As such they can lie to themselves about how much smarter and better they are than everyone else while getting to insult everyone and anyone because they deep down know their people are never going to be in power so are never actually going to have to deal with anything out of the theoritical realm.

    Because of that, anyone that actuall deals with the reality in this country and the reality that has been present for around two centuries now can be found, in some way shape or form, as hypocritical and worthy of condemation and scorn for not striving for the most "pure" form of whatever they're advocating (of course "pure" as defined by the haughty arrogant libertarian types in question).

    Thus the arrogant up their own ass libertarian types can pump up their own fragile child like ego by being able to look at the vast majority of people that live in this strange thing called "reality" and realize that you're never going to have a perfect candidate and so at times you have to figure what's most important to you and what's the bigger gamble or the bigger chance of doing good for the country rather than simply stick to pure and complete ideological extremism. Those people that dwell in that horrible place called "reality" deserve scorn, if for no other reason than the help the poor libertarian keep his grasp of their exceedingly needy superiority complex.

    Naturally I'm not talking about any specific ones, this is just a generalized trait I've noticed in the extreme ideological wing of the Libertarian party and movement over the years that would explain the "hypocritical" comments. It'd explain it for moderates and centrists too who often times are simply spineless wimps who can't take a side or don't want to admit to a side, or usually simply like to bitch, whine, moan, complain, and attack and thus acting "moderate" allows them to do it the most to everyone while never having to take a strong stand and always being able to worm out of things by playing the neutrality card.

    Again, I'm of course not talking about specifics, just in general here about what I've seen. It just seems to explain the hypocrisy BS being levied on the Republicans leaning people of the Tea Party (of which makes up just a shade over HALF of the entire movement) but barely levied on anyone else, at any other time, since historically at least since WWII NEITHER party condemns or criticizes loudly and in large numbers their side when they are in power for doing things they dislike but rather tend to do it quietly while being louder when its the opposing party doing it for a variety of political and human nature reasons.

    Yes, silly me, it is only the great and wonderous extremist libertarian and "I'm always neutral so I can bitch non stop" moderates/centrists that are immune to the dreaded hypocritical label, of which one could NEVER place on them.

    Frankly I think its ridiculous to get upset or act like children about Republicans being louder about things when a Democrat is in office and doing worse and bigger things (to their ideology) than the Republican before them, nor do I think its idiotic not to get upset about Democrats suddenly shutting up and stopping their huge rallies about the War or Gitmo or Immigration. This is the nature of politics, this is reality, this is political strategy, this is human nature.

    If for a second I thought that all or even most Republicans loved everything Bush did and never criticized him, then I'd agree. But I saw some of the most die hard republicans on this site express their displeasure with some of what Bush did. With the same vitriol or anger? No, but that's expected. Likewise, if for a second I thought that all or even most Democrats loved everything Obama did and never criticized him, then I'd agree as well. However I still see some of them now speaking out when Obama does things they disliked that Bush did, just not as loud or as angry or as rhetoric filled. And I see both sides much more apt to rationalize why its okay when their side does it. However I don't get up in arms, see a need to call names, or make a giant deal out of people acting like HUMANS and doing what is done both in politics and outside of it by every single person at some point in their life.
